    K&P/PC Racing/Pure Power Re-Useable Oil Filters

    Serious race engines have been using them for some time. The ones they use are extremely expensive though, more than 5x as much as the model in the 2nd link for the element alone.

    Whats the hang up with LED's?

    Actually LED headlamps are now quite feasible. Check out the new Audi R18 race car, obviously it has a huge array because its a race car but the tech is for their road cars.

    Redline water wetter

    I'd bet that the auto transmission, in a track environment, is creating a tremendous amount of heat, in addition to the engine working at full power (heat) for relatively long periods of time. The external air oil cooler and the larger radiator, IMO as someone who builds real race cars for a...

    Oil filter as a coolant filter?

    Yes it will work fine, I had a P1 as a coolant filter on my car for a year with very minimal media distortion as a result of it. Now I'm using a NG with no ADBV to help keep restriction to a minimum since the line its attached to is just a small throttle bypass line with probably a very low flow...

    Front Wheels Toe Out?

    You can't use the string method unless the 2 sides are exactly parallel and centered side to side by making sure the front hubs and rear hubs are spaced equally (F and R can be differrent, as long as the LR and RR match, same for the front). (It is impossible with only 2 jack stands and one string)

    Percussive Maintenance of LED Flashlights

    I had one of those with the exact same symptom, except for me it wasn't so much just getting brighter; it would appear to be totally dead, but when you give it a whack, it would come back to life. No clue as to why it happens though...

    Before and after pics of cooling system

    An oxalic acid solution will easily take that out if it's corrosion/sludge related deposits. Some of the flush kits you have used may be Oxalic based, but most arent so it should help you quite a bit. I would also add a coolant filter for the remainder of the vehicles life because getting it...

    Microsoft driving me crazy!

    Dreaded Windows Update? You've got to be kidding... Ubuntu has just as many updates released for it on a regular basis that sometimes break certain functionality because of a change to whatever it was that updated, requires just as many security checks (and instead of yes/no you have to enter...

    What about older vehicles?

    Check your owners manual to see if it has an alcohol % limit. Mine (from 1989) says it can run up to 15% alcohol fuels. I do share your (and many on here) sentiments regarding ethanol blended fuels though.
