My stable vastly expanded in 2018. I went from three cars to four cars and six motorcycles. Honestly I never saw this coming and I never planned it either. Despite that, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here’s what’s going on with my projects..
Our CPU is a bottleneck in X-Plane VR. As it turns out, X-Plane continues the FSX tradition of being an absolute CPU hog. All four cores maxed out while the GPU’s only running at 30%. From what we’re reading online, it’ll take a 5 GHz CPU overclock to get stable framerates in VR with very high settings, but we’ve…
On Tuesday morning I heard my condo buzzer go off. I seriously thought I was about to be fined, arrested, or killed as nobody ever rings my buzzer this early. What actually showed up was much nicer!
It’s a $700 running MX-5 in Illinois that isn’t a pile of rust or a wannabe racer!
I know I said I wouldn’t get another bike for a while...however a man in Wisconsin found my kryptonite, a barn find two stroke for less than the cost of a nice date night...
While bored this morning I decided to look see what’s out there for donors for the Ruckus engine swap project. What I found made me stop in my tracks...
Paying tribute to the amazing woman who built this machine, I named it after her all time favourite plane, the Lockheed C-130H. Thus, here is the C-2070H!
We had a number of complications, however the build is complete! Now it needs an aviation themed name.
Good, bad, and very ugly... :/
While playing FSX on my ASRock Deskmini, Madame DeLorean got an idea to build me a rig that could play VR and X-Plane 11. Enter this monster...
No worries, I’m not buying any bikes/cars/donors/major parts until the situation with my 453 is resolved. But I can still window shop, right? Anyway, I’ve not been able to sell the Gambler Ruckus. I guess it’s a little too rough looking and too late in the year to get anywhere near a reasonable price.
Update! After emailing Kinja devs, I’ve learned that your personal blog is supposed to remain its own entity. This is not actually a new feature, but a glitch. *whew*
Last night I replaced the fuel lines, carburetor, and fuel filter on the CF Moto. I literally had to carve the old fuel line off the fuel tank. This morning I discovered something horrifying...
During 2018 the smart auto brand celebrated its 20 years in operation. It’s one of the few brands launched in the past couple decades that can say that it’s still around today. However, I fear smart may not be around much longer and surprisingly smart’s performance in the USA may be more telling than you’d think.
Writing my latest look into history is taking longer than expected. Unlike Chinese motorcycles, there’s a lot going into today’s subject.
Delivering some sweet smart action!
Update: Whoever guessed bad fuel (all of you) was right on the money. I can get it to start and run...sorta.
Unless you find a hamfisted way to turn it into a 69 joke.
But at least I got the 450 moved to the front of my condo.
Finally received my new side skirt in the mail. Forums weren’t lying when they said Helix parts are perfect fits for the CF Moto.
