Jang tried that years ago. It was incredibly noisy and didn't move very well. At the very least you need to make the ducts longer so the air being shot out the back is less likely to get pulled back in the front, rather than doing useful work moving the car.

Could be any number of things imo, even just a single misplaced word. Could be poor results, poor race attendance, given how this year has been, financial issues, personality differences, etc.....

I have all 4, tb03, tb04, tb05, tb 6 and 7. I was selling the 4 and 5 but I saw this kit going for a good price and bought it.

And on the line from the pipe to the fuel tank lid, put a loop in it, takes out some of the exhaust pulses

Those are real tires. They are new-in-package HPI Belted X-Patterns, made from their Pro compound rubber. All of my on-road tires are Pro compound.

Fuel tubing is very narrow; I seriously doubt exhaust pulses manage to propagate through the tubing in any meaningful way. What difference would it make anyway? The pulses would dissipate completely once entering the large volume of the fuel tank.

Might be worth listening to the ornery old man on this one.... and yes I would have done the same as you as I hate excess tubing and wiring.

Got a little surprise when I brought my MBX8T in from outside.

On other news, the girl I been talking to recently was talking about her job she sells health insurance and she mentions how some drugs can be a couple of grand a month and I don't know why because I know some drugs can be expensive but it was still surprising.

Some are even far more expensive. I think without insurance, my parents meds were well over 10k a month. They had old school insurance that covered everything

At one point my prescription medicine was over $1000 a month, it's still pretty expensive, even though i don't take much. Thankfully i have some prescription coverage.

I blame people like Pharma Bro.

In other news my first attempt at making resin gears for my 4-tec failed. I have to redo the mold nut it looks like it will be possible, thought I could get away with using talc powder as a mold release but that was a no-go. Actually went out and bought some.
Use a wax. Lay it on really thin.

I can't say my drugs are prescription, but it only sells by the gram. My bill is a lot more than $1000 a month.
