  1. By far the most important aspect of bolted joint design is developing and maintaining the proper joint preload (via installation torque).
  2. Possibly my best memory in the dunes would be losing a Jesus bolt on my rail’s steering link and hitching a ride with a buddy to the Glamis Beach Store for a replacement. Must have been April or so it was hot so we got ice cream. On the way back to my stranded buggy next to Olds, smashing through the whoops on sand highway one hand on the wheel, eating ice cream with the other. Two grown a$$ men just giggling like little kids thinking that was the coolest thing ever, while the rest of our group was out sweating in the hot sun which made the ice cream even more awesome.
  3. RIP Penny Few things in life are sweeter than an old and greyed dog/best friend resting peacefully next to you on the couch with their head on your lap.
  4. That’s what I did. Took a stocker from a corvette or maybe it was GTO that I got with my ls2, then just sort of chopped it up a little and shoehorned and welded it back together. Kept my stock foot pedal. 3 seasons and no issue. I really wanted to avoid the extra cable. It has a super responsive feel this way, there is zero free play. love that throttle rhythm matching in between the whoops or wherever. Give it a quick little blip and let off before the suspension unpacks and the tires start to really slip, what a great feeling. Brap brap braaap... Never felt the same before with a spongey cable setup, I won’t be going back.
  5. If you get it you should mount some of those $40 BD lights up on the grab bar so that you can night ride 😬
  6. X2 Agreed and for low quantities definitely skip the expensive injection tooling. Your parts are a great vacuum formable shape. Plenty of places around that could crank out a hundred of these in an afternoon with some cheap tooling.
  7. Love my M12 drill with the 3/8" chuck and 2 speeds. I use it mostly for driving 3" deck screws into 2x4's and whatever random projects. Been through at least a major kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, office addition...still going strong. I hate listening to the 1/4 impact chattering away, so I avoid it. Wanted that M12 Fuel stubby 3/8" impact that Alper showed above, but ended up getting the Dewalt 20V Max for doing lugnuts and whatnot. Very happy with that one as well but it is heavier.
  8. Hmmm. Despite the title, I clicked this thread hoping for pictures of actual Funcos, just sayin
  9. BD squadron pro with flood lens and amber covers. Got them pointed angled to the side probably 15-20 degrees out and downward too so I can peek over the edges of transitions before really turning into it. Works real well. Sort of like the side lights on those lp9’s I guess. Xl80 combos out in the nose as well. I sat down with one of the sales guys at BD, and that was what we came up with for duning at night without going crazy $$. Couldn’t be any happier with the results. Tons of light.

  11. I went with the clear lenses on my BD's, and then added the amber covers. That way I've got the option to go clear or amber, and I'm keeping the sandblasting confined mostly to some $10 replaceable covers in case they get worn or even cracked from rocks or knucklehead type stuff. That was one of the sales guys' recommendation at BD, and I like the logic. I've not taken the amber covers off since. I'm told that it's sort of obnoxious (blinding) on a night ride if the BD's are in your rearview mirror. So that means I get to lead which I like. The XL80's have a dimmer switch as well, also a cool feature. BD's can be rebuilt as well, another bonus. Very happy with mine, although it was basically impossible to score a deal on them.
  12. X2 Baja Designs I’ve got a chinese light bar as well, bright yes, but it never gets turned on as it scatters and reflects so poorly. The BD is super sharp and crisp and you can actually see the contrast.
