    This guy was hitting 280 consistently! Honestly, that's a rad setup for the money

    I was up above it, Now I'm down in it ~ Entropy - A Build thread.

      I'm not familiar with dyno brands and their comparative readouts


      Simon, I agree with that tip top shape idea.

      I think my car looks really nice, but isn't nice enough to care too much about. I def beat the shit out of my car and it looks good doing it. I notice a lot of people with the big project cars are just perpetually working on them and never driving them. Maybe that's the fun part for others, but every weekend I try and take my car out for a nice drive.

      I've made little changes, nothing of interest really. Nothing the audience that COTM would find interesting.

      I have two cats though that are pretty cool

              I am so down! I have like 17, I can't remember. Let's do this.

              I'm already excited to see other people's cats. Now we're talking

              Edit: I'm down to 12 now, with 2 more that come and go.

                Seems to be lots of traction for the cats, time to get on board Simon.

                  I think this was one of the photos used for my COTM last year.



                  But now hearing everyone's thoughts, it should have been this...

                    Went for an extra 500 RPM and had oil pumps shearing off and other things, with an ATI damper and all.
                    I think the oil pump chain tensioner, new chain, and a tacked nut would do more for these engines than the ATI damper, and the cost of all of that is maybe $40.
                    500rpm extra in relation to what? Are we talking in relation to 7,000rpm?

                      I was going to say stock M54 redline, but it seems like you're right, skimming the thread again it seems like they did try for 7500 at some point in there.

                        Trust me, I've considered featuring non-e30s... but I think I will keep the Hot Wheels car until someone finally replies.

                              I've been playing around with motorized bikes. This is a mid 60's Newsboy Special, original patina. Stuck a $100 Chinese "Happy Times" bicycle two stroke kit on it after making the fuel tank match, and strapped an old milk crate to the rack. I use it to run packages, get parts etc. It goes 30+mph and fits in through the ally ways. Can usually get to the partrs store faster on the bike than in a car (divided highways, u-turns, RR tracks etc):

                                Very cool. Was it originally red? Just curious, why do you prefer this over an actual motorcycle? Guessing you don't need a license for this lol
