  1. A friend owns a 2008 Ford XR6 on factory LPG. its running like rubbish, barely starts and idles poorly. Tested a new battery and nothing changed.

    Looking for a workshop that experienced with LPG fuel systems and fords to fix it.

    Any suggestions. Would prefer the east, around hawthorn if possible.


  2. it is 75db at 30metres. silvias have exhausts that exit on the LHS. they test from the pit lane thus the RHS of the vehicle. If you have any kind of muffler, it will be fine. if you are worried, have the exhaust tip point down to the ground. they use that trick over in the UK to pass on race tracks.

     

    My exhaust was fine:

     

    3" turbo back, decat, 3.5" straight through oval muffler.

     

     

    link to the noise


  3. -3 or -4 front camber. I found my s14 loves front camber, just have to be careful with braking efficiency.

     

    More caster. If you change the camber plates to a diagonal oriernation you can get another +1 or +2 caster.

    With caser arms and this change I have +9 caster without front tubs.

     

    -2 toe works well.


  4. good start but i'd recommend a few things

     

    -tripod ( like you already said )

    -further zoomed out, camera with a little wider angle. to get both you and the object.

    -avoid copyright music to avoid the video getting taken down.

    -make the video shorter in future unless it is more complex.

    -post production audio. you don't have to do all the speaking in the video. you can add in the instructions after getting the footage.

     

    Great thankyou smile.png

     

    Yea I had to acknowledge 3rd party content in my youtube upload, I was like fuuu don't say you're going to remove it took lireally all night to upload lol.

     

    I was concerned about the length but I was trying not to miss things out.

     

    Post production audio was something I considered but didn't know how to go about it, like what recording device do I speak into to overlay it onto my video?

     

    record a separate video inside, with as little background noise as possible. any half decent video editing software will allow you to rip the audio from that video and overlay it onto the instruction videos. this way you can have a mix of both instructional audio and voice over during your video.

     

    another way is to buy a cheap microphone and record it all indoors. you ll find even a cheap microphone will record vastly better audio quality than event decent video cameras.

     

    Mightycarmods have produced a "making of" video that explains how they produce and record all their videos.

    this might help give you a few ideas about your future videos.

     

     

    One day when my car gets back on the road, I'll probably make a similar headlight cover but covert it into a headlight replacement ( for the track).

  6. only negative rights. negative rights require no actions from people. a right to healthcare is a positive right due to the fact it requires a government, tax, people paying tax ect. in effect, the bill of rights should protect all rights where there is 1 person or 100million people in the country. it doesn't need to go into details about political policies or setups.

     

     

    i'd say like the american version with some modern language improvements.

    though, id argue we don't need the 2nd amendment, at least to the same extent.

     

    also need to add in something to protect citizens from being extradited without charge or into countries where due legal process doesn't exist.

     

     

    realistically i don't want a bill of rights for australia. the problem is that you cant have a democracy create a bill of rights, at least in this day and age.

    would be f**ked if the greens got a hold of it. for now, our system works. its not perfect but i think a bill of rights would only reduce our rights not strengthen them.

     

    this would be especially true for freedom of speech. i truly doubt perfect freedom of speech laws would be protected in this day of politically correct bullshit.

    eg, the Andrew Bolt case.

  8. Peter89,

    I'll put it in simple terms

     

    The guy who made the video is a dick, not a primitive bigot..

     

    It's too hard and complicated for a primitive bigot to put a video up on YouTube, it is however quite easy for one to riot violently over said video, and just as easy for the bigot above to condemn a whole community because of the fallout, without a full understanding.

     

    As was mentioned with hoons, we as enthusiasts condemn hooning, but we don't go all vigilante on hoons do we?

     

    Every time an ACA thread pops up, the same people who are trashing the Muslim community as a whole here, bitch about being victimized..

     

    the difference is that I am not calling all muslims violent. I am stating the majority do not support the same freedom of speech the rest of Australia does.

    I would be happy to be proven wrong but I am yet to see any actions that would show the rest of Australia that muslims are serious about defending freedom of speech and putting such laws ABOVE their own religion.

     

    also it is important to state that just because I commend one group doesn't mean its isolated. There are definitely enough Christians within this country that don't understand freedom of speech as well but in my daily life I haven't seen that to be common.

     

    In the end, you guys can disagree with the director all day long. Call him whatever you want and claim whatever punishments should happen.

    However, if you assualt someone in Victoria ( cant be sure about other state laws on provocation) over a religious comment, you will end up in jail.
