How about a general Tech area, which could include a restoration "progress report" thingy if anyone is interested in posting their projects, and if it gets big enough, break it up into Marques????

Yeah before I set something up I'd like more input - I'll split this topic off later.

I just think "general tech" won't stay general for long, and I don't think we have enough tech talk of marques individually to have their own sections.

However - I reckon we have enough interest in tyres and wheels and suspension in general which spans across enough marques and applications that it may be beneficial to the wider community.

A restoration area... interesting - but why not just a thread dedicated to a specific vehicle in the most relevant area?

I'm always open to new ideas, but until there's enough traction on it's own merits it's best left in a more general topical zone.

yes Brett

Tyres can and do rotate on the wheels, in heavy duty applications.

Thank you for saving me from painting my wheels.  ;)

The ABS/non ABS does make sense in a kind of strange way when you think mathematically about it.

eek! Don't think about it, and WTF has maths got to do with it?

As the brake is applied, and the tyre grips the road, the hammering effect of the ABS shocks the tyre around... so the front tyres turn forwards on their rims due to the abs and the drive tyres turn backwards (on a rear drive car) due to the traction under power, which is greater than the rear braking force.

Umm, have you heard of Maths/Physics, same/similar.

Potential energyl/kinetic energy/potential energy, (i.e. start stop.............. )  all maths /physics.

I haven't done long division since school days.

I've done a bit of physics though  :thumbsup:

edit... are you on the sauce?

M-e-c-h-a-n-i-c......the only Maths these guys know is how many zeros to put on the final total.    :boggled:

that's the easy bit... it's making the decimal point appear in the right column that's tricky.

oh, and to blow some smoke up my own arse re THAT.... I did a job for $180 bucks last week, that another shop quoted $7k to fix!
