One of my invention projects is a competitor to this but is still in FDA trials so not available to the public.
That's interesting. Best of luck with the trials.

Re: Bike paint primer dilemma

Hey John,

Regular steel sprayed with WD40 works well. That's what we used to use on the race car frames. Makes repairs easy after smashing them up. Believe it or not, semi-flat black top coated with WD looks pretty good too. Just apply liberally and often.

Re: Motortrend article with tons of info about Tesla’s Cybertruck

I just replied to a post about a couple of really experienced and extremely intelligent members leaving the forum.

Re: Discussions aren't the same quality without Chalo

I miss Chalo's posts too, but if the forum lost LFP (Luke) that would be a damn shame. I wonder what happened? Did he just get tired of the joint, or did someone piss him off? He spent a lot of his time and money buying batteries and other kit and testing them. He always shared his results with us. ...

Re: I will never buy from Luna Cycle again, if I don't have to

I have seriously considered taking action in this area. To whomever it may concern, do not push me. $25,000 leaves a paper trail. I don't understand.

Re: Which hybrid electric car will be yours in the future?

I liked my 2016 Volt so much I just traded it in for a 2020 one. This the last year they are being sold and I didn't see anything out there I liked for the same $. In about 2 years we should see some nice plug-in hybrids hitting the market. This was the end of the Chevy tax incentives too.

Re: What's with this censoring nonsense happening on the forum?

The worst mistake a moderator can make is discuss his actions on the open forum. It never works out and seems to empower the troublemakers. If communication with the participants is necessary, it's best to do it via PMs. As to the poster in question, I question his judgment on calling himself 'godli...

Why not go ahead and activate win10? I think I paid $1.50 for the last activation key I bought on ebay. I got the key 5 minutes after purchasing it and never have had any problems with other keys I've boughten. Have you tried the 'Brave' browser? It uses the Chrome engine but offers better privacy a...
