  1. Is the 500 ready for the race yet?
  2. The data comes out looking like this. The waves in the lines are due to the sampling rate of the device. My throttle system for example samples 10 times per second.
  3. Inside the car on the chassis. The bodies are only .040 lexan and don't seem to bother the signal. There's nothing to actually see on the device. It downloads the info to an app on your phone later.
  4. Not quite ready for a new kitten yet.
  5. Ask me again when I get my laundry that I washed yesterday from the dryer.
  6. Hard to say. I played to a standing ovation for years and years.
  7. The recliner was my nest when I was recovering from surgery. Like a comfortable home.
  8. Well, I spent the day selling old race car parts, motors etc as I am all in on the drag racing aspect now. It fits my current lifestyle as many weekdays I'm out making test and tuneup runs locally by myself. I sold off enough old stuff to pay for the onboard drag race timer (et and speed for 132 ft) mentioned above and enough left over to buy this fully adjustable wheelie bar, one of the final tuning aids to set up the outlaw street eliminator. This can be adjusted so one wheel touches down slightly before the other if some steering correction is necessary leaving the starting line. Next u
  9. That's what I wanted to do. Work for a couple of years after starting to collect SS and use the extra money to do any and all work around the house so it was solid for retirement. But anyway, getting the house paid off is the best way to save for retirement. No debts.
  10. It's probably not good for lap times but it is good for speed and acceleration curves over a specified distance by GPS. That's more or less straight line because it bases the distance on where you start and what it's set for. Lap times will end at the start point and that's not a distance from start. Great for drag racing though.
  11. I didn't want to retire. The work was very very interesting and they pretty much let me work my choice of hours. I was forced into retirement because the parent company always lays off oldest people when the chance comes. My immediate boss was candid. "Of course you can fight it but they will go after your son if you do" He was right. They were just the people to do it.
  12. Skyrc on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/SKYRC-SK-500023-GLONASS-Performance-Analyzer/dp/B083C5P6W5/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=skyrc&qid=1614625934&sr=8-4 That is the lowest price I've ever seen on the device.
  13. My first sign of spring is Daytona Day. The actual weather doesn't matter because it's a state of mind change from winter depression to:
  14. I've done that. My bird changed sides from top to bottom when it flipped.
  15. NASCAR is coming to the Circuit of America this year.
  16. Don't try to kid us. Your new house is your hobby, just like mine was 40 years ago.
  17. It was race car spring on the 14th of Feb.
  18. A very small gps device that measures speed and acceleration over a specified distance. Then it puts the results on your phone in graphical format. This, of course, is just instrumentation for my race cars. I would never use it for simulated 1/4 mile runs in my full sized car.
  19. I don't see how anyone in VA can have pasty white skin. I lived there for a number of years and I had a very dark tan. Of course I wasn't huddled on my couch posting in some obscure bicycle forum all day.
  20. Happy Birthday Naomi wherever you are.
  21. Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
  22. One of my great pet peeves. I never know whether to ride 6 inches behind their bumper or slow down to 10 on the ramp so I will have room to accelerate to merge speed. IMO they are among the most dangerous and most likely to cause an accident drivers on the road. I prefer to hit the top o f the ramp at speed limit plus so I have a range of choices where to merge.
