Only cause the ozzy dollar is so bad against the US. One of Motormans motors is worth the same as a small house in ozstralia.

The Ozzy $ is like .49 to 1 USD? I need to move. Median price for a house in the area I'm in is like $450,000 US

So, If I bring maybe 5 motorman motors down will you trade me your house?

Default What Oils?

Motorman what after-run and air filter oil do you use and recommend? Brands etc would be good but I live in Australia so the selection is probably not as good as for you. What properties to look for in after run oil? Thanks in advance!

Right now my group kind of plays in the sandbox so to speak about half of the year. I spent several years developing stuff that did not exist on record anywhere (unfunded officially, pure hardcore one off. Its the kind of stuff that management uses the term plausable deniability for.) and showing it at Board of Director level shows. I had a manager on paper that did not exist and reported to a director. Yes 1/1 powertrains were involved and still are. That is all I can say about it.
So we should expect to see you on the X-Files?

Actually you're kinda scaring me now.

It doesn't fit the target market mold so it dies in committie so to speak. However its a neat place to understand the limitations of some really exotic materials.

sorry dubya no flyin saucers here. LOL Just stuff with donuts attached to axles
Okee so can you take something home and put it on your own car? lol
