With that motor, can you pass emission? I am guessing that since it is pre-96, it should be pretty easy!?

Wow 800 hp?
Way to much I would shoot between 400/600.

Some one got mad! LOL!

A British gamer has listed on eBay his red-ringed Xbox 360. And it's in even worse shape than that suggests.

Plainly and repeatedly listed as a ''faulty Xbox 360'' - and that picture isn't deceptive advertising - UK eBayer jonnyandco05's bricked 360 comes to you ''modified for better ventilation, with a turbo inlet on the side.'' Also, ''the disk drive has been repositioned for optimal performance at 37 degrees.'' No doubt by a massive blow to the case.

The seller says the console ringed and he tried to fix it, but his skills weren't up to it. ''Sadly, it does have a bit of fire damage and rage damage.'' But just a bit.

Pros: Has ''authentic Microsoft sticker.''

Cons: ''Some parts are a bit missing, like the on button.'' I'm sure that's what's preventing it from starting up.

Bidding started at 1 pence, At time of publication, it was up to £6.01. ''Please note if you buy this it is sold as faulty, in quite a faulty way,'' he writes. ''But faulty is the new fashion now days so you may become super trendy. no returns, no refunds, no job.''
That is awsome!!

Anyone remember me? Its only been well over a year since i posted in the Lounge or really any part of RCU... lol

So, I decided to redo the exhaust on my mustang. Don't like the smell of a cat-less system when I have to keep the windows up.

So I want to do something different, don't care about performance as I have unlimited HP on tap with the 5.0, but I like doing different things.

2 words... Side exhaust

i give up, tired my new GP 7.2v pack, and tried it in my Mamba/Sidewinder equipped vehicles.. still the same lame performance..

the only way the cars will go is if i reduce the throttle EPA to 60%, but then when i am stationary it reverses without any controller input [:@]

yet when i try to reverse via the TX, it doesnt have any effect.

the TX has been reset to default settings, ive 'rolled back' the Mamba firmware to see if thats the problem.. nothing.
