I'm back guys. Got an email saying the site was back up, so I figured I'd check it out. Don't know how much I'd be here, but figured I'd say hi!!

I didn't see any ZX2s in there.... But the movie was pretty freaking sweet. I can't wait to get it on Blu-ray.

Jayco has been nothing but empty promises as far as I'm concerned... Think about all the parts they said they would make. I think they realized they were in over their heads, and pulled out before they lost too much money. The few deals they have done have been poorly handled with customer service. Nobody can ever reach them... It's just bad ju ju. Don't buy from them.

Jen has the same issue with hers. I think it has a lot to do with the engine mounts. When you are creeping along in first gear, you are only getting 12.5 fire pulses per second (1,500 rpm / 60 seconds (per minute) / 2 fire pulses per crank rotation). The engine is going to rock each time a cylinder fires, and if you have older engine mounts, the engine will sway. Having a 200 lb weight swaying in a light car is going to rock it pretty good, which exaserbates the problem. The more the car sways, the more the engine sways. The more the engine sways.... You get the point. Adding polyurethane inserts in the motor mounts should help.

I'm not saying it's only the motor mounts, it could be something else. Also, since the Z doesn't have a whole lot of torque, it won't keep the car moving as well as a bigger engine, which is probably why it rocks so much. I know that once Jen put the high rev intake cam in, it made the problem worse.

Anybody like playing flash games? I get bored a lot at work, and there is a site that just opened up not too long ago that isn't blocked (yet). It's Pretty sweet compendium of Tower Defense games. So have fun, and play some sweet games!

I'm still here. I only post at work, so I don't post a whole lot. That's one problem with small forums though. Since people don't post a whole lot, there isn't really a reason to post replies.

Man, some pretty cool stuff shown this year. Sony had a pretty strong line up. Killzone 2 gave me goosebumps. The trailer / in game footage was awesome!! It really got me pumped to see the game in person. The new PSP looks pretty cool, and I really like the video out that it is going to feature. Little Big Planet looks super fun.... Oh there is just so much that was cool!

Post your thoughts (if you followed it at all)!

Microsoft is just trying to mimic something that people like.

That is what Microsoft does best. They copied Apple back in the day with Windows, copied the iPod with the Zune, copied Sony with the Xbox... But whatever works I guess.

Beware of Turbo Tom. I haven't had any personal experience with him, but his tuning ethics seem.... less than ideal.

But yeah, Kicker is the man to talk to. He knows more about the Z than anybody I know. My wife knows him, and says he is a good guy. He beats EVOs, so he must know something...

God damn Pip. Freaking running man over there. I wish I was a stick... I wouldn't even have to run.

You know, I think they got it all wrong. Skinny people don't have to run to pass their test, so they could be the most out of shape folks. If anything, the fat kids that pass are going to be better, because they have to really work to get it! So they are going to be able to go that extra mile, when the lazy skinny kid dies off.

Don't get the 90* bend in the pipe. It doesn't really affect air temperatures much, and it hurts airflow. Get the Accord intake that has it going down at an angle to the same spot it would be with the extender, but without the harsh bend. has the intakes you are looking for, if I remember correctly.

Man, the TV is already burned in a little bit. This is exactly why I wouldn't get a plasma. Honestly, it wouldn't be hard to adjust what you do to suit the TV, but I really don't want to have to worry about stuff like that all the time.

I'm pretty sure that the ATX came with a 3. something. It's pretty low though, certainly not 4.06. That's off the Escort I think. It's lower than the 5 speed. I know that much.
