I mean if you have come this far watching them and thing that this will be an issue, then you clearly have missed the overall point of what they are doing...

waterhorse So awhile back they showed a turbo they were not going to use. I was too big. The one they have now looks even bigger. I don't see how it will fit under the hood. (Bonnet)

The same way my upgraded brakes are a safety device... I mean I needed them, and the upgraded control arms, they are safety as well.....

4x4mechanic Just like Marvel superhero movies, there's always an "easter egg" at the end...

They'll learn one day...

Why not? The phony freeze-frames are funnier than hell.

Works good for some things. I have one and rarely drag it out to use it. If you're not building a race car most things are adequately clean with a shot of brakeclean.

I do use them at work constantly. Great for cleaning filters and screens.

they are irreplaceable once you've got one

pulse timing don't mean shit when you stray into forced induction, whereas internal volume and external surface area of the manifold matter a huge amount

Interesting. I wish it had been longer. I wanted to see things like the small hardware go through the plating and big items like the sub frame get blasted.

Not that we have a patent on that or anything, but I saw it here first...
It only ended up here because people say it out in the real world. It definitely didn't start on PBB.

I give no fucks what colors the man wants to paint his shit.
it's his.

I'm about to do questionable titanium color oxidization things, and when the internet tells me it's dumb I'm gonna tell the internet to fuck itself, it's my shit.

Binky is named after Death's Horse in Terry Prachett's Disk World series. Binky the horse is white so it would follow that Binky the car will be white also
