Prop retaliation is a poor idea, but that's just IMO.

Bring it to the staff's attention, let them handle it. But that's just my .

Obviously, you and he fought it out in a Highlander-style "There can only be one" fight, and took his head :(.

On the bright side, you now have all of Rick's knowledge and power!

Yeah I found it interesting someone randomly -1'd a random helpful/informative post of mine from like 2009....And we didn't even have the props system then.
Oh well, that's pretty pathetic so I'll just let the rtard feel good about retaliating lolol

I just had to point out this particular wonder of a post.

'Cause it's so amazingly prop-worthy. Oh yes, it's SUPREMELY prop-worthy. In fact, it's so prop-worthy that even Brainy has to bow down in awe of Techsalvager's prop-worthiness.

Riiiiiight.

Because the torque and power characteristics of an engine 2.5 times the size...


...AND A DIESEL...

...are going to be such a great basis for comparison to a Miata.

Your own subject line says it best.

Then I plotted the resulting airflow on a GT1544:



That dot where it's crossing the 70% line and dropping? It's at 4000 RPM.
but with a 2860 in compound setup. this a 2G dsm setup with a 16G and a t4 flanged 60-1. It puts down about 630whp, and makes 33psi at 3K.

posting this as there actually some interesting things being worked on which pertain to getting more power out of these motors. i just skimmed it but i think these garrett peeps are sticking with inconel but say they can improve transient 25%

Well, I sold the MOAB so you missed out there. But the 2.3 Duratec engine I've got now has a nice torque curve.
