TECH WEEK MAY 2011

Postby bmxarmy » Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:01 pm

Hey all (In caps) haha

This is the start of (hopefully if successful) many technical week article contests! I have talked with greg (AZhitman) and we have decided to give this a try. So here is the deal. Everyone post a tech article that has something to do with bettering our cars! hopefully everyone can learn something and the whole "group" can learn something. After 2 weeks me and greg will select the top 3 and then set up a vote system to pick the WINNER!!! Now the winner will receive one of my custom coil covers... either one of the ones made or a custom cover..(winners choice) shipping cost is usually 20 ish bucks ( i Live in Canada) so lets call it fair and split the cost....if the winner has a bad a** post I will eat shipping :ohno: So everybody dream up something good and post something to better us all! I am going to post an article that is so OT, but could be used on anything....(p.s. I cant win :) ) lets have some fun and spread our knowledge. Here is the coil cover thread to give you some ambition!

Edit: tech week ends MAY 13 2011, winner decided by May 20, 2011

custom-rb25-20-coil-covers-t525517.html

PM me or greg your posts and we will get them on some sort of list so its easier for all to check out!

Thanks again all! Lets get to it!

im going to do a detailed write-up on the 125amp quest alternator swap on the RB. cause there is not a single one on this forum for the RB and this write-up you can make your own upper bracket (which I got the Info from Gawdzilla) and no one else has to get screwed over like the guy that claimed to have custom upper bracket for the rb and stole alot of nico members money and they never got what they paid for.

the only reason why i was late was because i did not get my turnbuckle back from my polisher until last night and i tried to get it it all done. but rules are rules, if you want to give it to robbie thats fine with me. I just did it for all my fellow rb enthusiast.

no i don't have my cover any more. so does that mean my effort was for nothing? even if i still had my cover isn't that irrelevant? just b/c i have money in the bank doesn't mean i can't win the lotto. i mean yes i wrote for the community (i actually started this writeup awhile ago, this was just motivation), but because i PAID for a cover previously i can't win one? i'm a little confused though.

no man, dont get your panties in a bunch! you can have a cover if you want! hahaha its all good just thought you might want something a little different! I dont care either way. But lets not make this look like a bitterfest. Pm and we can get your winnings on their way! hxc shot me a pm also. Nice job boys lets try to keep helping out the others as much as possible with future tech posts...My life got in the way of my contribution but I will still post a tech thread once I get the "project done.
