Aren't many newer A/C systems using a variable displacement compressor? Means there's no clutch.The reason modern AC systems cut-off the compressor clutch above a certain RPM isn't to give more power, but instead to prevent damage to the AC system. Can you imagine how the compressor electronic clutch would like engaging and disengaging rapidly while the engine was at 6000+ RPM ... it wouldn't be good for it.
ON most cars I seem to hear the fans cycling on and off every 4 seconds in the grocery store parking lot.Aren't many newer A/C systems using a variable displacement compressor? Means there's no clutch.
"Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side when he sees the big red light behind him ... and then he will start apologizing, begging for mercy.
This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. The thing to do – when you're running along about 100 or so and you suddenly find a red-flashing CHP-tracker on your tail – what you want to do then is accelerate. Never pull over with the first siren-howl. Mash it down and make the bastard chase you at speeds up to 120 all the way to the next exit. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker-signal that says you're about to turn right.
This is to let him know you're looking for a proper place to pull off and talk ... keep signaling and hope for an off-ramp, one of those uphill side-loops with a sign saying "Max Speed 25" ... and the trick, at this point, is to suddenly leave the freeway and take him into the chute at no less than 100 miles an hour.
He will lock his brakes about the same time you lock yours, but it will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180-degree turn at this speed ... but you will be ready for it, braced for the Gs and the fast heel-toe work, and with any luck at all you will have come to a complete stop off the road at the top of the turn and be standing beside your automobile by the time he catches up.
He will not be reasonable at first ... but no matter. Let him calm down. He will want the first word. Let him have it. His brain will be in a turmoil: he may begin jabbering, or even pull his gun. Let him unwind; keep smiling. The idea is to show him that you were always in total control of yourself and your vehicle – while he lost control of everything."
I could hear that quote in Johnny Depp's voice, love that movie.No one reads anymore?

About five miles back I had a brush with the CHP. Not stopped or pulled over: nothing routine. I always drive properly. A bit fast, perhaps, but always w...www.goodreads.com
I like to think my military plates get/has gotten me out of a lot of trouble. The worst was "94" in a 55 on I294 just north of Ohare airport. Anybody that has driven down I294 by ohare airport knows you stay behind the fastest person. Just so happened I was that person and won a nice court date. State trooper wasn't rude or anything though, just straight to business and on with his day.
It had crossed my mind, however being on Navajo Nation land they have their own trial, judges etc. I am part Cherokee but don't look native anerican, and found out that the Navajo and Cherokee don't get along. I almost said my tribe will call your tribe.You should’ve just looked at him and said “Si”
I'm from Chicago and I don't even think the police do traffic stops anymore. You have to be driving on the sidewalk on into oncoming traffic to get pulled over.
