I have no problem with it at home, either. But I've just tried it on two different machines here which I've re-flashed to stock (from the manufacturer's restore disc) and freshly installed Chrome upon, and I have the same problem with each. Did some light googling, and found a ton of other people complaining about it too (including in the Chrome dev site), but absolutely no official word from Google at all.

Ah, well. For now I've loaded Firefox. It's been several years since I last used it, and was pleasantly surprised that it's become quite a nice browser. They seem to have learned much from Chrome.

They had to. It was becoming a bloated POS browser very quickly.

No, not $4k for that. You can find decent E28 M5's for a bit over $6k. Just got me started thinking about E28's instead of E30's.

Yeah, I'm liking the easy boostability of the M20 and M30 engines. Seems pretty straightforward.

I watched that car do a standing burnout half the length of the hot pit at Buttonwillow. In 95 degree ambient air temp. I was grinning. And then was depressed as I watched the car I guest drove overheat and puke its coolant at idle.

so i finally got around to replacing my ecu clutch switch, and i figured that would allow the megasquirt to do launch and flat shift. but i was wrong. i have the neutral safety switch unplugged, and the idle up and down settings when pushing the clutch in and letting it out. what would it take to just wire launch to a switch?

wiring the wire that attaches to your launch control in to a switch, to ground. that's about it.

do you have a vtps?

The wire would be the clutch input on the ms correct. And yes I have a vtps, it setup to engage launch at slightly under 25% throttle.

so with the clutch pressed, and the throttle above 25% you never see the lanch on indicator on the bottom of TS change to green?

So my harmonic balancer is going bad. I've looked around and the prices vary a lot. Should I just get on ebay and buy the cheapest one or is there a good reason to buy a new one from the dealer?
