      Overview: You join a house and using MW4: Mercenaries (moded to NetMech4) you go to a planet that your house is attacking/defending. you pick a 'Mech, join a room and drop with up to 11 other players at a time.

      each planet has 100 ready rooms of a max of 12 players each. So, yes, this is a MW MMO! Any other questions I will answer.

      I will send you a personal message when i see you are registered on the forums. To get to your personal messages go to your control panel. The button for it is in the upper right side of the forums. Right next to it is the button to go right to your PMs.

      Will do, as of now, I get the rotten egg smell, about 22 mpg on the freeway (should be mid to upper 30s) and there is NO check engine light. I will see if a shop will hook me up to their OBD-2 scanner for free / reasonable price.

      I should really invest in an OBD-2 scanner. :)

      Five days ago. At first I thought it was because I was running the car in -30 degree weather but now it's in the 20s and still occurs.

      Well, perhaps you can help me out. The Jetta is running extremely rich and well, I don't want to get 14 miles to the gallon anymore. I was told to try buying another brand of gasoline, and I've done that twice and still she runs rich and gives me the rotten egg smelly exhaust. Could it just be my cat converter going bad or what do you think the problem is? I do a google search and I get mixed opinions, I may just take it to the local exhaust shop to have them check it out but maybe you know what's going on.

      I appreciate your help buddy.

      Barnes lake is fully a frozen lake smiley0.gif there is an ice racing series around there that has a few races a year on the lake. they had one last week and said the ice was great for racing on. so no worries about falling through smiley8.gif . and i am surely destined to finish last. my first rallyx/autox experience... and its on ICE.

      as for the swap, it can be fairly expensive, depending on who does the swap and what they do. mechanically, the switch is easy. but changing over interior trim etc. can be tricky, as well as finding the interior bits. i can find an older 5spd for relatively cheap, but then there is the question of shipping, installation etc etc.

      i'm budgeting 3k to do it.

      and to you and wolfy re: toilets and whirlpools (i geuss thats what you're discussing) water will drain in the direction that its predisposed to do by the action of that particular bowl of water. you can test this in your sink. fill it with water, swirl it one way, watch it drain. swirl it the other way, and well... you'll see smiley8.gif

      yeah flexibility is a HUGE part of tricking. give it a try some time man it's a great exercise

    • ScaryThing

      12 years ago

      my firs ttrick in that video is at about 35 seconds where it says "gainer level up!!"

      the next is at 45 seconds where i fall on a cartwheel to front flip

      after that is 1:07 where i try a hook and almost fall. haha

      the same trick, a little better, at 1:50

      after that i do a 540 kick at 2:05

      then at 2:27 i actually land a cart-front

      and that's all for me hahaha

      the gymnast looking asian kid is my cousin (all the huge gymnast tricks are him. the first trick in the video is a double back tuck and that's him)

      heres the link again btw

      exactly man, but if I had a clean record I would be doing crazy axis spins.

      I so wanted to go for it m8! The lot was ready and it was just a thin layer so it would have been awesome. I just can't afford another ticket so I'm kind of paranoid about doing it.

      Mate - about this whole toilet thing. I've tested for the last week, but I cannot tell at all, they all seem to just flush straight down, no circular action what so ever.

      Sorry dude, but I'm no help.

      Dude, that's the most random thing I've heard this week. smiley0.gif

      I think this myth is false, but I cannot really tell from the toilets at my work. I will check it out over the weekend and get back to you...

      Yeah those numbers should be about right ... not bad since stock is 92 / 97.

    • Cortana

      From what the guy tells me it will bolt right onto my block. He wants $600 for it. Comes with: USRT +1mm oversized valves
      Port and polish
      3 angle valve grind
      USRT tapered valve guides
      USRT titanium retainers
      USRT heavy duty springs
      USRT lightweight lifters
      Autotech 270 cam
      Techtonics adjustable cam gear

      Guy says the new head on a stock Jetta makes 119 fwhp 120 fwtq. Throw in my ECU and exhaust and I will be in business. :)

    • Cortana

      12 years ago

      There is an ECU from a company called Techtonics Tuning that is flashed for the new head I am going to get, but other than that, Jetta chips are 5-9 ponies and that's it.

      If I got a new cylinder head, how much would it cost me to have someone to install it, any ideas?

    • Cortana

      12 years ago

      Well, I have exhaust covered: Scroll down to Mk3 2.0 ... actually a great system for the price.

      Headers, for $200, wondering if it's worth it. They claim gains but who knows.

      Underdrive pulleys, what do you think? I can pick up a nice one for $75... should I?

      Was actually thinking of going supercharger .... once I get my job at the airport back, not until summer.

      Snow? ND just got 10 inches from what supposedly was the weakest part of the cell that dumped two feet on Denver. I have high performance all-seasons on there, about 6 months old... not doing so bad.

      My plan is Power first, then handling + brakes and leave the car stock on the exterior.

      So, I have $500 in my hands and have an ECU, KN drop in filter and an exhaust .... what would you do with my Jetta?

    • Cortana

      12 years ago

      My Current ECU

      First thing I had done was re-flashing my stock ECU to that new chip ... really wakes up the sleepy Jetta.

      As for suspension, she's stock still. Was thinking coil overs or what people call cup kits? Suspension is something I know nothing about unfortunately.

      There are so many options, hehe.

    • Cortana

      12 years ago

      Probably exhaust headers, what do you think? I've been debating whether or not headers would be an improvement, what do you think?

      Wasn't just me, but once you started to read their profiles was very obvious. Not quite so easy to tell now but enough is still there to show they are still dumb.

      Auto II sounds interesting, what do you do? Good luck with finals.


      It was supposed to be, and it was until recently.

      Auto I and Auto II were all about cars, albeit Auto mechanics. (I wish we had a car design/engineering program, or an Auto program that included that!) We go out into the shop and work on cars.

      It was cool, but about three weeks ago, our Auto teacher left to get a much better-paying job, and that left us with an uncertified sub for the rest of the year, so we could no longer legally go out into the shop.

      On top of that, the switch for the computers was in the garage, so those weren't and option, either. Luckily, the new teacher showed up on Thursday, and he turned on the comps for us. He won't be teaching until next semester, though.

      Anyway, we found out that between jobs (And medical insurances) our old teacher got in a motorcycle wreck (He had a Ninja) and he crushed his left leg, which had to be amputated on Tuesday.

      We're all a pretty tight bunch, because we're the only real gearheads in the school, so we know each other well. One of our classmates wrote a short poem about how he might have lost his leg, but "at least he still has his [another appendage, if you know what I mean]" smiley4.gif
