    The car that killed the mini van gets a make over. By the number of my posts you can see I’m not a poster, not big on social media either but I’m making an exception for my friend. This is a tribute to my friend Gil George. The blue car you see is very special, the story is my wife had a Funco Hustler 2 gen 3 (Pictured Flag car - If you’ve been to Glamis you probably have seen it. She designed the graphics for it) she was very happy with it until I got my new Gen 4 with the new at the time bypass shock option. I took her for a ride to a spot where there was a pretty nasty kachung and Instead of slowing down I stomped on the gas, it went through like butter. After she rode in it she knew she wanted to build a new Hustler. But she wanted to do something different. Gil was reluctant (he would say no you don’t want to do that) and she kept bugging him for quite a while until he agreed. He sketched out the car on a yellow legal pad. It was a Hustler 2 seater, but with a swooping line front to the back (with Gen 4 suspension) at the time Funco was known for the mini-van look. This was way different. Don’t know if they built any more in this configuration as it’s a tight fit cabin wise, could never be a four seater. They changed the arc of the roof to be much higher in subsequent models. But the basic design was the basis. I don’t think they built too many mini vans after this car. After my wife had her L-4/and L-5 vertebrae (I think that is the right term) fused to her tailbone she was concerned that she could make her back problems worse if she kept driving her car. We said we were not going to sell it so I sold my 4 seater car and Gil figured out how to get me in it, a 6’-2” man into a spot built for a 5’-7” woman, (I called it operation shoehorn). The cool thing is I got to experience this light car with only 250 hp and what a blast it was to drive. I didn’t turn into a bowl, people were amazed to see me jump into a bowl! Just a freaking blast to drive. I drove it for several seasons, super fun. My wife began dying a little each time I left camp with her baby. I don’t blame her she was longing for the dunes again in some capacity maybe just be able to get back in the small dunes by the gecko loop, so I jumped on the grenade again (just kidding I know how f-ing lucky I am) I bought my second new Funco in my life, the first one is the one showing up on the surbaru\v8 thread (4 seat purple and green). My new one is a G52. I did that so we could do a remodel on her car to make it more accessible by adding doors, the air bag control system (so it can be lowered for easier access), new more comfortable seats, enclose front of car, add full dash, livorsky gauges, taller paddles, billet wheels and many other small details. John at outback is freshening up the Subaru giving it a little more boost maybe. I really believe this was Gils swan song! We started this remodel project with him and now we will have to finish it without him. We just lost a piece of history, a person who made incredible contributions to our sport and to our lives. I am a better man for knowing him. I will miss you friend, thanks for always telling it like it is! Nobody will ever accuse Gil of sugar coating anything! This page is a tribute to the man, I will add progress photos, although we are painting it now so this should come together fast. The frame is done and as you can see it has a brand new skin. Feel free to share your stories about Gil.

    Saw this exact thing so many times over Tday week. And every single time they were SxS drivers. Leaving Pad 3 and heading toward Roadrunner the SxSs were 4 and 5 cars wide coming up Sand Hwy. Stay in line you little azzholes. Your bumper against mine will not end well for you.

    The doctor said, "The good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition that causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one heck of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles." I was shocked and depressed. I wondered if I had anything to live for. I had no choice but to go under the knife. When I left the hospital, I was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but I felt like I was missing an important part of myself. As I walked down the street, I realized that I felt like a different person. I could make a new beginning and live a new life. I saw a men's clothing store and thought, "That's what I need... a new suit..." I entered the shop and told the salesman, 'I'd like a new suit..' The elderly tailor eyed me briefly and said, "Let's see... Size 44 long." I laughed, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!" the tailor said. I tried on the suit; it fit perfectly. As I admired myself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?" I thought for a moment and then said, "Sure." The salesman eyed me and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck." I was surprised. "That's right! How did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years." I tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly. I walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?" I thought for a moment and said, "Sure." The salesman said, "Let's see...Size 36." I laughed, "Ah ha! I got you! I've worn a size 32 since I was 18 years old." The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 32. A size 32 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache."

    I've had 2 independent shops close down near me. John Burr Honda/Yamaha and Yamaha of Cucamonga. I have no idea why, in an economy like this, they closed but both have been doing business locally to me since before I was born. Another sign of the economy is the traffic. Both right lanes of my freeways are almost all tractor trailers delivering the stuff we buy. Another is the advertising of the RV dealers in overdrive and the huge lists of warranty problems with those RVs. I've seen this before in the 2000's. We'll see when and if this next drop is better or worse than the last.

    Do not buy a Forest River anything especially the DynaMax. To keep it short my 2016 Dynamax 37HDBH was in the shop for months on end for warranty work, the Tile floor kept breaking yes breaking after (2) floor replacements in happened again this time with the third Dynamax rep. they decided to cut the floor open to the frame and add some channel between the perpendicular frame rails. Forest River in a F**king nightmare to deal with, it took 3mos-90days to get a $.00 vanity light fixture approved for replacement, I asked them to send it to me and I'll replace it, the answer was NO. The craftsmanship on these things are a joke, all the beds are the worst, the furniture is crap and is no storage in the kitchen. I will say the the exterior paint job is well done but that's it, It did tow well with the 8.9L but the Captain seats and the monoleaf sus is pretty harsh and it made me go back to a DP. After 3yrs and 19k miles it was time to move on. Also this particular model was almost a thousand pounds heavier on the drivers side I found out when we were adjusting the air bags to level the coach in the rear as it listed to the left side and put scales under the tires. The cabinets were falling of the walls, electrical problems, there is not any rear ventilation in the bedroom no windows that open or roof ceiling vent and no ladders for the bunks, I had to tell the guy they show them in the brochure, hey replied they don't come with them HUH WTF. I could continue but im good for now, FW products are CRAP. Thanks I feel better. 😄

    I grew up in south Spring Valley (not a great area) and that's how we did it. That's how you got the deals...just walk up to the door with cash. Sometimes they sold the car...sometimes they didn't. That's how I bought my first car. A 1969 Baja Bug that sat on the street a few houses down for a year and never moved. Got it for $850. Turns out it had a lot of good stuff on it. Of course that was 1990 and we didn't have the internet. Thinks are a lot different now....but for some, not so much. I remember I couldn't wait for Thursday morning when the new auto trader was delivered to the 7/11 LOL ~jw

    When brother Steve and I flew to Alaska through Canada, it was a real adventure. Density vs total cargo load kept us circling for a while, but finally decided to run the canyon instead of over the top. Flight service in Vancouver Canada neglected to mention a fire in the canyon. IFR all the way due to smoke. (White Knuckle Ride) Cleared the fire, and the electric failed.. Landed in Kamloops, into the shop for repair. Simple fix, busted wire on the alternator. Next day, off to the Watson Lake Trench. 400 plus miles with no strips or service of any kind. The FS center gave us a Xerox of the dirt roads we could use if an emergency occurred. We were required to carry a long gun on board in case we needed to eat when we crashed. Landing in Watson Lake, no tower, no radio, nothing but asphalt. We circled looking for other aircraft, returned to the pattern, performed a wing over and a full throttle landing and a run out to the end of the strip. The only thing there was a sign for the taxi telephone. Next day, headed to Northway Alaska, the first US strip over the border. But first, we needed to navigate some tall mountains. The climb rate on the Beechcraft Debonair was less than the downdraft in the mountains. Wheeee.. Well, as you can see, we made it. Landed in Northway, waited for customs to clear us, and had a bite of lunch. Turns out there was a "Fly in" and about twenty larger twin engine privates were there. They looked at us like we were crazy.. The final stop was Homer Alaska, were our cousin Gary had a guide service. While landing, the brakes didn't feel right. Yup, needed brakes. All the way to Alaska to put brakes on the plane. After a week the return trip was a much simpler run.. Nothing broke.

    1. At the time, the PBS had stronger housings compared to the Mendeola S4/5, which was the main reason we pushed them. But they still shared mostly the same shift mechanism and issues that come with that design. 2. I would not say the Weddle cases are a "huge" upgrade over the PBS main case, but the PBS gear carrier/shift housing does have a thin spot between the bearing bores that is known to crack with the newer/larger mainshaft bearing. These have been cracking pretty regularly since they redesigned the housing to use the larger bearing. 3. Entire 1st-5th gear stack, sliders, hubs are from us is about $4350. You would need to get a shift drum and forks from PBS at their cost. R&P is the same.

    Well, fook. Was full and open yesterday. "Quick summary" is below, I'll try to find the actual article: The WSJ published a comprehensive investigation Friday, How Google Interferes With Its Search Algorithms and Changes Your Results, that provides fodder for ongoing or new antitrust investigations of the company, both in the US, and worldwide: THE JOURNAL’S FINDINGS undercut one of Google’s core defenses against global regulators worried about how it wields its immense power—that the company doesn’t exert editorial control over what it shows users. Regulators’ areas of concern include anticompetitive practices, political bias and online misinformation. Permit to me quote from the WSJ’s takedown at length – although I encourage readers, if possible, to read the entire (paywalled) version, for it contains a wealth of information, as well as lots of cool graphics: Google’s evolving approach marks a shift from its founding philosophy of “organizing the world’s information,” to one that is far more active in deciding how that information should appear. More than 100 interviews and the Journal’s own testing of Google’s search results reveal: • Google made algorithmic changes to its search results that favor big businesses over smaller ones, and in at least one case made changes on behalf of a major advertiser, eBayInc., contrary to its public position that it never takes that type of action. The company also boosts some major websites, such as Amazon.com Inc. and Facebook Inc., according to people familiar with the matter. • Google engineers regularly make behind-the-scenes adjustments to other information the company is increasingly layering on top of its basic search results. These features include auto-complete suggestions, boxes called “knowledge panels” and “featured snippets,” and news results, which aren’t subject to the same company policies limiting what engineers can remove or change. • Despite publicly denying doing so, Google keeps blacklists to remove certain sites or prevent others from surfacing in certain types of results. These moves are separate from those that block sites as required by U.S. or foreign law, such as those featuring child abuse or with copyright infringement, and from changes designed to demote spam sites, which attempt to game the system to appear higher in results. • In auto-complete, the feature that predicts search terms as the user types a query, Google’s engineers have created algorithms and blacklists to weed out more-incendiary suggestions for controversial subjects, such as abortion or immigration, in effect filtering out inflammatory results on high-profile topics. • Google employees and executives, including co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, have disagreed on how much to intervene on search results and to what extent. Employees can push for revisions in specific search results, including on topics such as vaccinations and autism. • To evaluate its search results, Google employs thousands of low-paid contractors whose purpose the company says is to assess the quality of the algorithms’ rankings. Even so, contractors said Google gave feedback to these workers to convey what it considered to be the correct ranking of results, and they revised their assessments accordingly, according to contractors interviewed by the Journal. The contractors’ collective evaluations are then used to adjust algorithms. Biases Big vs. Small. One major bias: a preference for big versus small. The WSJ notes that at least for shopping results, Google made the tweak as it believed consumers are more likely to find what they want at larger vendors. But this bias looks to me like it stymies, rather than promotes competition. The bias is not limited to shopping, as WSJ reader James West noted in comments (agreeing implicitly with my interpretation of the anti-competitive effect of the Google practice): James West Our company, an independent publisher of financial coverage of small cap Canadian companies, has routinely been the target of what can only be explained as “manual downgrades” in Google search results. Our tests indicate a persistent pattern where Google is awarding search visibility increasingly to large US media enterprises, even where ours is local to the issue, and more detailed. Google’s founders Page and Brin have built the company to thwart contact from its users, and now, as evidenced by WSJ’s coverage, there are widespread issues with Google’s monopoly on search. Thanks to WSJ’s coverage, we will commence a request process with Canada’s competition bureau to investigate Google for anti-competitive practices. This company needs to be more closely regulated, as they are systematically eviscerating entire industries but reserving the bad behaviour it claims to police for its own financial gain. Political Conservative sites often claim their sites are disadvantaged compared to “liberal” or “mainstream” sites. This is not exactly news. Yet the bias extends beyond rightwing sites. Yves has written about how changes to Googles’s search algorithm have whacked Naked Capitalism’s traffic (see Google Algorithm Change Whacks Naked Capitalism; Naked Capitalism is Back! Google Whackage Reversed (note the recovery in traffic was due to remedial measures Naked Capitalism undertook, rather than a Google reversal and upranking; and Google Further Crapifies Search, Exploiting Both Users and Advertisers). As the World Socialist Web Site wrote in 2017 in Google’s new search protocol is restricting access to 13 leading socialist, progressive and anti-war web sites: New data compiled by the World Socialist Web Site, with the assistance of other Internet-based news outlets and search technology experts, proves that a massive loss of readership observed by socialist, anti-war and progressive web sites over the past three months has been caused by a cumulative 45 percent decrease in traffic from Google searches. The drop followed the implementation of changes in Google’s search evaluation protocols. In a statement issued on April 25, Ben Gomes, the company’s vice president for engineering, stated that Google’s update of its search engine would block access to “offensive” sites, while working to surface more “authoritative content.” The World Socialist Web Site has obtained statistical data from SEMrush estimating the decline of traffic generated by Google searches for 13 sites with substantial readerships. The results are as follows: * wsws.org fell by 67 percent * alternet.org fell by 63 percent * globalresearch.ca fell by 62 percent * consortiumnews.com fell by 47 percent * socialistworker.org fell by 47 percent * mediamatters.org fell by 42 percent * commondreams.org fell by 37 percent * internationalviewpoint.org fell by 36 percent * democracynow.org fell by 36 percent * wikileaks.org fell by 30 percent * truth-out.org fell by 25 percent * counterpunch.org fell by 21 percent * theintercept.com fell by 19 percent Also on point is a Naked Capitalism crosspost of this 2018 Paul Jay interview, Matt Taibbi on Facebook and Google Playing the Censor; From the intro by Yves: I’m glad to see Taibbi speaking out in this Real News Network interview on this issue of growing censorship by Facebook and Google and hope that more journalists join him. With the help of so many of your readers sharing our post and encouraging your friends and family members to check us out, we’ve managed to stay on an even keel, while other “deemed to be leftie” sites have taken a traffic hit due to Google downgrading non-MSM sites greatly in their search rankings. Even the Intercept, hardly a blog-scale operation, got whacked. The problem is only getting worse. The WSJ notes that Google is increasing the aggregate number of changes to its algorithms, to about 3,200 tweaks in 2018, up from more than 2,400 in 2017, and further from about 500 in 2010. Influence of Advertisers: Blacklisting; Paywalled Sites The WSJ investigation discusses how Google caters to the interests of big advertisers: Some very big advertisers received direct advice on how to improve their organic search results, a perk not available to businesses with no contacts at Google, according to people familiar with the matter.In some cases, that help included sending in search engineers to explain a problem, they said. In another incident, the WSJ documents how Google reversed a decision that demoted the search results of certain e-Bay pages, in response to lobbying by the company, a significant advertiser. Yves discussed the influence of advertisers blacklisting “controversial” content in this August post, Advertisers Blacklisting News, Other Stories with “Controversial” Words Like “Trump” (a piece that also keyed to a WSJ story): It’s no longer paranoid to say that “they” are out to kill news. First it was the Internet almost entirely displacing classified ads, which had accounted for roughly half of newspaper industry revenues in the US. The Internet also turned most people save those who are now oldsters off print newspapers, even though nothing is so efficient to scan, taking with it higher subscription rates and display ads. Then Facebook and Google sucked most online advertiser revenues to themselves. To add insult to injury, Google implemented algos hostile to smaller sites, first targeting those that did what Google deemed to be too much aggregation, like our daily Links feature. Google deemed those sites to be “low quality”. One wonders if the real issue was that they competed with Google News. Then Google downgraded sites it deemed not to be “authoritative,” whacking not only many left and right leaning sites but even The Intercept. Facebook’s parallel action was to change its search and newsfeed algos, supposedly to combat fake news, but also hurting left-leaning publishers. Now, as the Wall Street Journal reports, many major advertisers have created blacklists, nixing ad placements that appear next to or in stories with headlines using naughty words like “bomb” that amount to a partial or total ban on news content. It isn’t isn’t just fluffy feel good brands that want to steer clear of controversy. Startlingly, even some financial services companies like Fidelity want to stay away from hot words like “Trump” even though “Trump” appears regularly in business news headlines, such as ones discussing his China trade spat, his tax cuts, his deregulatory efforts, and today, his interest in buying Greenland. In the interests of keeping my post short, I’ve limited my quotation; I encourage interested readers to read Yves in full. Despite maintaining in Congressional testimony that it doesn’t use blacklists, the WSJ account found that Google does. Google tries to wiggle around this apparent contradiction by relying on a narrow interpretation of what constitutes a “political” blacklist: Google’s first blacklists date to the early 2000s, when the company made a list of spam sites that it removed from its index, one of those people said. This means the sites wouldn’t appear in search results. Engineers known as “maintainers” are authorized to make and approve changes to blacklists. It takes at least two people to do this; one person makes the change, while a second approves it, according to the person familiar with the matter. The Journal reviewed a draft policy document from August 2018 that outlines how Google employees should implement an anti-misinformation blacklist aimed at blocking certain publishers from appearing in Google News and other search products. The document says engineers should focus on “a publisher misrepresenting their ownership or web properties” and having “deceptive content”—that is, sites that actively aim to mislead—as opposed to those that have inaccurate content. “The purpose of the blacklist will be to bar the sites from surfacing in any Search feature or news product sites,” the document states. The process for creating such blacklists is opaque, so it’s difficult to determine whether there is indeed a political motivation for so doing. And finally, the Journal discussed its own efforts to change a Google policy to disfavor outlets, such as itself, that charge for subscriptions: (The Wall Street Journal is owned by News Corp, which has complained publicly about Google’s moves to play down news sites that charge for subscriptions. Google ended the policy after intensive lobbying by News Corp and other paywalled publishers. More recently, News Corp has called for an “algorithm review board” to oversee Google, Facebook and other tech giants. News Corp has a commercial agreement to supply news through Facebook, and Dow Jones & Co., publisher of The Wall Street Journal, has a commercial agreement to supply news through Apple services. Google’s Ms. Levin and News Corp declined to comment.) The Bottom Line To sum it all up: Thomas Ferguson notes in an email “the last third of the WSJ article basically describes ‘electronic corporatism’ in which big private tech concerns look out for each other. Everyone else can’t even get an answer.” What Is to be Done? Some if not much of this info is well known to at least some antitrust regulators. Yet by publishing it, the WSJ increases pressure on them to address the problems Google’s dominance raises. The company currently captures more than 90% of the market share for all search engines. As to those ongoing antitrust investigations, Matt Stoller, writing in the Guardian a few months ago, The great breakup of big tech is finally beginning, summarized the then-state of play: Last week, state attorneys general, led by Texas and New York, announced investigations into Google and Facebook for possible antitrust violations. This is a big deal. No society has ever centralized control of information as we have in big tech, and this is the first real American strike at the problem. As Scott Galloway frequently notes in his podcast with tech journalist Kara Swisher, the big tech breakup has finally begun. Note that this is one of many areas where Trump inattention or inaction doesn’t really matter. The feds aren’t the only game in town, and attorney general from US states, as well as the EU and many other countries, are on the case – not to mention Congress critters. Over to Stoller: Normally, antitrust enforcement would come from the federal government, but Trump enforcers have proved irrelevant at best. Instead these investigations are being led by the states. The Republican attorney general of Texas and the Democratic attorney general of New York are informal leaders, meaning that the investigations are bipartisan. The state attorneys general complement an important investigation by the House antitrust subcommittee led by David Cicilline. Such leadership suggests the rule of law, absent from American business for several decades, may be on its way back. There are also important investigations, hearings or cases by enforcers in Germany, France, the European Union, Israel, India, Singapore, Russia, Mexico and Australia, among others. (I should mention Stoller here has a new book out, Goliath: The 100-Year War between Monopoly Power and Democracy,which I’ve purchased (from my friendly independent bookstore). It’s next up in my to-read queue after I finish William Dalrymple’s The Anarchy, The Relentless Rise of the East India Company. I got sidetracked and polished off Matt Taibbi’s Hate, Inc. after seeing John Siman’s rave review, Manufacturing Fear and Loathing, Maximizing Corporate Profits! A Review of Matt Taibbi’s Hate Inc.: Why Today’s Media Makes Us Despise One Another). From WSJ comments: Steve W. Bell This is a terrific piece of Journalistic work – just when I thought the WSJ no longer was capable of it, comes this which is a Pulitzer class expose’. It is fair and objective., and introduces strong evidence. A 4th Grader could easily discern that Google search results are sharply biased and shaped to suppress legitimate Conservative speech that Google doesn’t like (that is, most all of it) from search results. Google took a dark turn, in my view, 2-3 years ago. I do not believe that their many great mid-level employees are the reason. They changed out the Sr. management team 3 years back. Now, two immense anti-trust investigations underway. Google has also turned sharply arrogant, e.g. on Jan 1st shifting all support calls – even from Agencies, to barely-trained staff in India. Breaking up Google into 2 or 3 regulated entities would be great for Google, it’s employees AND consumers. Although they enjoy a dominant market position, Google is a commodity – EASILY replaced. To repeat what I said above, the political bias extends beyond downranking conservative sites, to obscuring the output of other sites that also may have something to say.

    Thanks to Rob. Cheff, and Donnie for making sure i got home safe. I rolled the yxz . It was a nice slow roll, landed back on it's wheels. Cruised back to camp and nothing hurt but the whip. Next long ride we were out by the swingset and it overheated. The cooling fan wasn't coming on. We took the sand hiway back to camp and it stayed cool as long as I had good airflow. Turns out that the angle sensor knew we were upside down and didn't like it. The service manual said to remove sensor and incline it more than 60 degrees. Did that and, as they say on the interwebs nowdays "walla" the fan now works. Now all i have to do is wash all of the anti-freeze off from the overflow bottle exploding and we are good. Again, thank you all for making sure we got to camp safe......Chuck

    2 fans is too much for 1 relay. Buy 2 relay pigtails and wire in the other relay. What size fuse is on the supply 12V side of the relay? My guess for the melting of the plug is excessive draw on the power wire with a failing connection from corrosion or a lose spade connection. Replace the relay as well for good measure.

    I have a PBS sequential and broke the R&P over Veterans Weekend after 5 years of use. I bought my PBS used from a board member here so I don't know how much use/abuse there was before I got it. I'm happy with the reliability and performance. Anyway, I took it to Rancho for repair and was told by Sam I should have it back before Thanksgiving. The PBS uses Weddle gears, as do many other transaxles. I also called PBS and they said they could repair it and have all of the parts. However, based on what I read about them going out of business I asked them if that was true. I was told they are not actively manufacturing transaxles for inventory due to the market demand, etc. Just not feasible for them, but they have inventory and can get cases made if necessary down the road. I just don't know how long that road is.
