    Runaway Diesels

    As I understand it, it's a turbo failure that leads to oil going in along with the intake air, which causes the engine to speed up, which spins the turbo faster, which feeds more oil in and so on. I've heard various ideas to stop it. Throw something over a raised air intake. A butterfly valve...

    I've had enough of this crap.

    I fooled myself this time. A year later and I forgotten all about it.

    Love the Ex-Officio boxer-briefs. They don't last forever--the waistbands eventually wear out--but the fit is fantastic.

    WTB Tan Soft Top for Tithonus

    I still miss my Badger top on my old 90. It was a nice setup. The PVC top is fine and it’s tough as hell (more so than expected) but it wasn’t designed for the Tithonus and the fit is somewhat bad In spots. I gets the job done but leaks around the doors and the front section isn’t quite right.

    Pickup truck storage options?

    My boxes have four M8 holes on the bottom. I just used button cap screws to hold them down. Way stronger than it needs to be.

    Pickup truck storage options?

    It would be easy enough to decrease the depth in Solidworks to accommodate the decreased Tith wheel well space. I just don‘t have a SW license.

    Announcing NAS-ROW at Night (dark mode!)

    I find it interesting that so many people like "dark mode" on things. I'm in my late 40s and I need every bit of brightness to see stuff that I can get. What, exactly, is the use case for dark themes?

    Announcing NAS-ROW at Night (dark mode!)

    Well, @uc4me asked for it and I finally found a way to do it, so... Announcing NAS-ROW at Night AKA dark mode! To use it, click on your username near the top of the page -> Preferences -> Style -> "NAS-ROW at Night" -> Save (button at bottom of screen) Note that even the logo changes...

    Welcome to NAS-ROW

    There will be a few forum outages today. I'm going to be upgrading our forums software to the latest version, which sometimes breaks a few things. Thanks for your patience.
