PS, she likes the cat gifs in the gif thread.
My wife just says she knows I am on because I get a "goofy grin". She is not as impressed when I wake her up with laughing so hard at 2am. She was not happy with Ultra for about a year back in the heyday of the late night laughfests.

1. You are incapable of understanding that what you just described is exactly what I offered to do 4 or 5 times. My preliminary calculator is posted a few pages back. I didn't include pulleys because I didn't feel like looking up all the weights and diameters. If you want the calculations done, you would have had to put in some effort on your own end. If this is the case, you really aren't as smart as you think you are.

2. You are here to troll. Again. If this is the case, you F'ed up big time.


Either way, bringing the one topic up that you know @ichitaka05 has asked not be brought up in one of the few threads he actually participates in is not a good idea, especially when you have your own thread that you abandoned. Hopefully this will be the last we hear from you.
I saw your file before and I thought to help you. I didn't bring the discussion here. You did and @humfrz, but it looks you are a very rude person with no manners and you don't deserve any help. Too bad I replied.

Yeah, those heavier ones just sink like a rock into the turned ground. But both squirrels would be wrong though, since lightweight acorns are clearly the best nut stash mod one can get. I skimmed through an article that says they vibrate at a frequency that let's you get more nuts in the hole.

True but they should not be used unless inspected and approved by a certified nut inspector.

Ah, your right. You can only trust certified inspectors. All other manner of experts have it out for you, and want to steal your good nuts and leave you with bad nuts. And I'm clearly a nut expert, so ashamed. At least I know more about storing nuts for the winter than the goddamned squirrels!

Now, hold up fer just a gall darn minute .......

Let's review to see who brought this debate over to this thread.



@Tcoat (post #44409)

"If you build it just make sure you use a light weight pulley, narrow tires and do a ghost cam tune or it just won't be cool."


@Spuds (post #44413)

"In other news, I'm almost done with the inertia calculator. Just trying to wrap my head around what happens if the before/after includes ratio swaps. I should have something for Ultra to drool over later tonight."

So, did ol humfrz really fall off the turnip truck ...... and if so, where ..??

I may be old ....... but, I'm not ...... not ...... did I take my meds this morning ...... be right back .......

My statement has nothing to do with the debate. It is just the shopping list of current best mods.

The inertia (and now gearing) calculator has nothing to do with pullies. A review of the last few pages would show that I specifically left pullies out because I didn't feel it was important enough to go collect the necessary information to input stock measurements. Meaning I'm considering them part of the engine, not a separate component.

Enough about pullies.



What's y'all favorite nut? Other than Humfrz of course .

Mines Walnut.

Still need to try this.

But I think fun drives are on hold till I get this issue resolved .

Going to try and luck out going to Mann Engineering on the way to work right when they open tomorrow to see if they'd mind giving my car a quick look on the lift.
