I'd laugh at a drunk person through the window... an animal though i dont find so funny.
Those things are suicidal bro. They just jump out in front of cars all the time for no reason at all. Like literally they will wait by the side of the road and then at the last second jump out and get hit.
Well **** me, that car is amazing. I really don't understand it though, are the electric motors just there to make up for the turbo lag?
The electric motors are there to help deliver a more even torque line throughout the engine rpm. A 1.6L at 12k rpm is a very peaky motor. No way around it. The electric motors on the other hand have a fairly flat torque that falls off with rpm. Also while u're driving nicely and dont need the power from the gasoline motor, the gasoline motor just idles and keeps the batteries charged up almost like a generator.
Not really, thats probably the easiest way to find it if your markings are off. A .001" dial indicator isn't that precise by comparison. At my old job we used to have one that did a .010" 360 degrees sweep.
Joe isnt there a pin in there thats suppose to prevent that?
This is a common failure mode.
The pulley is not one solid piece of metal. It's two pieces, an inner and an outer, bonded together with a rubber ring.
As the rubber ages and hardens, it becomes possible for the two halves of the pulley to slip out of alignment. The inner part is still properly aligned with the crank (a woodruff key and pin ensure this), but the outer part is not aligned with the inner part.
This also means that all of the careful work I did optimizing the ignition map is completely for ****.
