    RE: Whats A good Radar detector Under $150

    RE: 97 Cougar 4.6 V-8 question

    I am guessing there was no check engine light?
    I'm not sure how that engine is set up but if it has a distributer cap I'd check that for burned contacts, loose plug wires, etc. If it has coil packs...

    OBD code reader?

    Ok, for the last few years I've been fortunate enough to be able to borrow/use a code reader when I needed one. But now, for various reasons, it's time to buy my own. The ones I've borrowed range...

    RE: Is it possible to run 4 motors in a car

    Much of what is done for fun and for research is, on one hand, a tremendous waste of time and on the other hand extremely necessary.

    RE: Another Innovative Suspension Design

    That suspension is interesting. I could see if it were on production cars that it may help keep tire wear more even.
