The deal fell through with that hovercraft I wanted. Somebody else had dibs on it years before I asked about it. Took some shots of important details so I can copy the design in the future.

There was a mechanic in the region with 60+ years of his salvaged stuff in an abandoned school. I was more curious about where he picked it up.

Did a bit of research on that ID name. Apparently these things were ahead of their time a bit. They were a recreational vehicle made in the 1970's. Supposed to go over water, but they worked better on land and could max at 40 mph. Back in the 70's they sold for about a 1000 bucks I think. Betcha it's worth fuck tons more today, probably more because it's the first time in my life I'd ever seen a hovercraft of that type. Probably rare as fuck because they weren't a bestseller and had some flaws, like rollovers with strong winds and sounding like a fucking plane at street level.

Still wanted it though. Coulda run that small engine it had on hydrogen and skipped all the fucking flat tires out here. Probably add a roll cage too. I figured it was a once in a lifetime find.

Partner's car started making funny noises and I decided to take the skyline on a 7 hour road trip to a melee tournament in Adelaide last month. Got there fine aside from the rear bar acting like a parachute after coming loose on one side, on top of a big headwind the whole way and the engine temps getting pretty high (120 c for both coolant and oil) for a few hours on the way in too. The next day car felt lazy and didn't want to make boost, with the turbo sounding like the bearings were shot. Had to leave it with my friend and fly home just to be safe and avoid risking further damage.

$770 (AUD) tow courtesy of some internal contacts at work, and a $450 service later and it ended up being the wastegate actuator arm sticking open. Glad it didn't stick closed/have something worse fail but still I coulda really used that money man LMAO

If they’re rare, building one that looks nice and runs might be worth a pretty penny to some collector out there

Don't think I've got the materials for something so nice. But I can do a hick/backwoods impersonation of the shit that makes it work with all the scrap wood and stuff I've salvaged.

Just tacking on a note because it's something big. Not related so much to vehicles.

I've had theories for a long time about water. I've wondered if it was possible to make a battery that used water. I am correct. More than correct. I found a way to make a battery that doesn't corrode and that uses water as its electrolyte.

Aluminum and brass get the best results. But here's the kicker. This battery gets better results in water that's heated, water that's flowing, or if the battery itself is physically moving in water. I did a lot of research on this and proved a theory correct. The battery corrodes, but extremely slowly because you're not using the metals to create an electrical charge. It's the water.

The water contacts the surface of the metal and exchanges electrons with the metal. It's a fucking electrostatic battery that uses water as a catalyst to drive a charge. It's stupidly simple to make, so even if I need to make hundreds of cells and link them, they can all sit in a single bucket of water.

I found a way to make a battery that can run on salt water without corroding as well. Carbon and carbon. I could quite literally use the wood ashes from a family member's wood stove, mold them and bind carbon powder with some kind of paste, and I'd have a battery that could never die.

That's a big fucking win man. Haven't felt this good about anything in decades.

  I've been fighting the same fight since 2018. My apartment complex has a 1 car per household agreement.   It has to be running.......  I want to find a house back in 2020 but the Pandemic, How my country handled it, post pandemic recovery, housing market was all against me.  I need space I want space for a project

times are rough right now and they're not going to get better before they get worse and best of luck to you

my current project car is basically done, since in order to go full racecar with it, it will be kind of ridiculous and if it got destroyed, it would be insane to fix

so instead i'm going to start on a platform that people don't like (because it's ugly), and just build it out all the way using the best dollar to performance parts (because they will be mass produced parts)

then i can focused on just tracking the hell out of it and if it blows up, oh well

Knock on wood a some point I will buy that old muscle car or EK9 and have a real fun time tinkering and building a fun ride

That's because the majority of Crossfires have been junked just like the rest of Chrysler's stuff

I could keep modding the crossfire but I’m actually happy with it

it’s the SRT one, not the regular one, pulls good, gearing is tall af (it can do 187 lmao?)

I could V8 M113K swap it and Renntech/VRP it to the moon, meth injection, SLR McLaren cams, all that hilarious stuff and have a retarded fast Crossfire  but I just want an Evo II clone

I appreciate  your passion towards it.  The car community can be dick heads sometimes but having variety at meets in always good.

That's fair

Shit was one of my OG favourites because we had Midtown madness 3 when I was growing up. You unlocked it in pretty early game and it was the first unlockable capable of 300km/h+ (186 miles per) lmao

In GTA V it's one of the fastest cars you can steal off the street and actually make into your own car, so it was basically the best car to steal as a level one player, the sultan RS (is300 or Altezza) was four doors though, so that was technically better

Sick that they added it to V tbh. Always struck me as one of the more esoteric performance cars
