You're still using the default page length? I set it to the max a long time ago.

Setting it to max destroys my viewing on mobile. Takes too long to load everything.

Click on your username at the top right of the screen with the arrow pointing down, select "user control panel". In there, go to "edit options", and scroll down to "number of posts to show per page".

Replacement coupler showed up today! 4ply and way thicker than the Treadstone coupler that ripped. Hopefully this and Gesso's magic heat shield material will put this particular failure point to bed.

Of course I picked up 2 so I can have a spare just in case. Amazon FTW

Do any of you guys know what car was at MMRLS that sounded like a vacuum cleaner? It was sucking all the air out of the universe on the front straight. No exhaust noise could be heard over induction/intake noise.

​I think it was dark green.

What group?

Might have been mine -- it's green, the exhaust is fairly quiet (at least by the standards of most of the other cars running in "A") and the intake is moderately loud.

Ha ha! That's a pretty good description of my car too but I wasn't driving. Must have been Ian.

Yeah it was Ian. Run group A for sure.

I was just curious what mods it had, because it was actually my favorite sounding car. No exhaust fart or drone noises, just bad ***, "you know this car is making good power" sucking sounds.

Details are in my build thread, but the short answer is: built motor (SuperTech/Carrillo), P&P BP4W head, FM2R turbo hardware w/ GTX2863R, FM 3" exhaust, no cat when in race track config.

It sounds quiet compared to the other cars in "A" because most of them are naturally aspirated race cars where you need to take all the restrictions out of the exhaust. The turbo kills a lot of the sound.

I pulled out my SLR during a C group session on Sunday and shot a few frames. Finally got around to pulling them off the camera this evening:
