Forum rules

1. Keep it clean.
2. Keep the discussion civil.
3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

Watch Pistons Running at 10,000 RPM to the End

This is interesting.

Some kids with too much time on their hands, a beater, a camera, and a tow chain.

Enjoy.

Good question, just 2 1/2 years and I can't remember! I was probably trying to figure out what's wrong with it, if there's a load on this motor (welding) it gets hot and loses power. It's in the shed and it still sits on the "to do" list.

Maybe those kids saw your video and got the idea!

Would have been cool to watch stuff like this while I was learning to be a mechanic... Much better than the slow motion animated stuff they showed us narrated by the Department of Defense dude with the monotone voice.
