Figure I've got a snowball's chance in hell of winning, but for $28 (kicked in a $5.00 donation and had to go a few extra's large too:oops:) I figured what the hell. My 200 is nearing 96k and the struts are all factory (even on the corner that got hit this winter). BC is the only company that makes coilovers for it.....plus I'm not sure if upgrading from the stock "Touring" springs and struts to the firmer ones off the Avenger R/T would be much cheaper and would be adjustable dampening, even if I don't set it any lower than where it sits now with factory stuff...............

WTF!? Mine was supposedly submitted over 18 months ago for a suppressor that I made, while working for a company that I won't mention ever again. :x

Weird. Company under ATF scrutiny maybe? Or your design was too good. "thumbsup"

Not exactly my latest purchase but it is my latest RC build. My daughter has putted around a rustler a few times and she likes it enough to spend a little time driving it when we had free time during our visits, but I wanted to get her something easier to drive that can go more places.

So this summer we built a stampede 4x4 kit and it was a blast. She helped a lot with the build by assembling the diffs, bleeding the shocks, and other various wrenching tasks with my direction. She also picked out the color scheme, told me where to mask, and did the bulk of the spraying.

Now shes hooked and we make plans to bash, and shes already asking about what body we can do next time when she comes out for thanksgiving. Making her dad proud as always.

I'm guessing that my supervisor at that company screwed up on the paperwork. He didn't even sign the forms for the first one we sold, so that guy had to wait almost two years total.

Ooof, sucks for the eventual owner.

My faithful old Lumix compact camera finally threw in the towel a couple weeks ago. I can't complain, it made it 10 years. So I knew I wanted something more than a compact, but less than a bag full of DSLR gear, so I went with a bridge camera, and of course, another Lumix. Panasonic Lumix FZ80, 20-1200mm zoom, 4k photo and video, yada yada.

I am looking forward to see how long my 3D printed T shirts will last, it seem cheap T shirts with vinyl print only last a year or two before you see fading.
I still have some original Nike T shirts from around 1990, they are also faded a lot now but they are clearly a much better quality than say the T shirts my family have gotten at holiday resorts for me.


So far i just have 1 wash / dry cycle on my Chinese 3D print shirts ( all polyester )

Ive made some for the guys at work. They get worn every other work day and washed/dried in industrial machines. So far theyve held up to at least 30-40 washings. Faded shirt dye, but the vinyl is still in tact.

Next thing Ill look into is the shirt sublimation method. Printed straight off of a printer with special ink. Heated into the fabric and cured in 20-30 seconds.

If anyone is stateside and enjoys a good cup of Joe, check these guys out.

^^I'd love to try their coffee and support them, but it's expensive AF since I can't get it anywhere local.

I work with a guy that knows a few of them. He brings a box of K cups every now and then. But it is pricey. Coworker claims hes the reason they sought out a vendor to make their K cups. It did open up another section of marketing though.

Just one BIG problem, it is not reference PCB, so might be hard to put it under water which was the plan.
And i really wanted to try a full cover block for the first time, but if things turn bad i will just put water on the GPU and then do my usual heat sink mod on the VRMs and memory modules.


Will be no problem as in my later builds i have always had a couple of fans solely dedicated to do airflow over the motherboard.
