Ummm... are you going to be there this time?

Are you bringing Jake too?

What about the rest of the TCOA crew?

I suppose anyone can take a nap at the meet, it'll depend on how I'm feeling that day.... I can only barely control what this 1 year old does. You all are grown ass adults.

So I can tell you what to do. tongue.gif

That's why I said ft. manmeat, because butt was meat, and I think you're a man. Although one can never be sure nowadays laugh.gif

I totally missed that up there, that's a bummer. We've all been there, it sucks but things move on, I hope it was on good terms and what not.

I've been happy with EverStart at Walmart. All batteries are basically made by Johnson Controls, so they're basically all the same anyways (in a roundabout way).

I have autocraft silver in the Celi and autocraft gold in the Matrix. Both have been awesome and given me no issues for 3+ years now. The gold has been amazing. Starts up in any weather. Even started on the day we got down to -55. Of course I just laid in my bed and pressed the autostart button, but I heard it start with one crank.

Im glad that car it seems that it dont look (today) like in the first pic (stuped rice ugly).Then i dont know why he put that gt-four pic that is being sold somewhere else , Who he trying to fool? Plus thats way to much for a st with no jdm tail or projector and a non matching interior. The only good thing is that is clean(spoiler raisers, rims ,low millage and the front lip thats not even paited) just my humble opinion kindasad.gif

It’s nothing that bad or serious, just a follow up from an accident several years ago. It’ll be nice to get it done and over with but the timing sucks for spending the money and everything we have going on at work.

It wasn't the possetion that got him arrested, it was the intent to distribute across state lines.

Right now, you can grow, sell, and smoke; but only in the same state. The lighting industry is all buzzing trying to get in on grow lights before it becomes federally legal to transport countrywide. After that, indoor growing is projected to see a sharp dropoff as states like CA, and OR will most likely be the major agricultural hubs for hemp.

What is everyone using for dash cams? Was thinking about a https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/587334 OR https://www.vantrue.net/Goods/goodList/cid/4.html.

Not going to use it for every day just for long trips so I can get a time lapse.
My thoughts:
-Garmin more expensive but maybe better made?
-VanTrue better choice since I'm not going to use it everyday.
-view angle, 120į or whatever, which might be better, is bigger always better?
-I don't need wifi or GPS on it
-something with good video quality

I dunno. I've just always been a fan of time-lapse videos, & I plan on a long road trip this fall so thought it'd be cool to do that.

Posted by: Bitter Mar 24, 2019 - 12:35 AM

I'm using a Street Guardian model, the files look good off the cam but youtube poops them up with their compression ontop of the camera's H264 it does on the fly. Image quality is good enough to pick out plates even in poorer lighting conditions. 2k and 4k are getting better but usually lack low light quality, tons of youtube videos on different cams, look around, there's even a forum called dashcam talk.

Franticaly assemble car in time for the meet


^this.


Oh wow, still not done?


WELL..... we just thawed out last week so.... yeah. This winter has been a long one. that, and the wife went photo crazy and trip crazy. 3 out of 6 weekends were photoshoots. the other 3 were trips/concerts etc. Temps are gonna be up in the 50s this week so I'll be out there finally.

Toyota dealer wants $29/gallon for red coolant. Anyone know of a cheaper source? I haven't done a ton of research yet.

Posted by: Bitter Mar 26, 2019 - 10:31 PM

Beck/Arnley is what we use at the shop for colored Asian coolants, but I don't know if they're any cheaper at retail pricing. You might find that Pink is cheaper, it's OK to mix pink and red, just it'll be more like a red life time until it's an all pink system if you're mixing them together but lets be honest, Toyota pink and red are both 100,000 mile coolants anyway so as long as it stays in the engine you're only changing it out 2-10 times in the lifetime of the car anyway.

Thank you for the recommendation. I just found out that my dad has a couple of gallons laying around that he's going to give to me. smile.gif

I'm going to be changing the time belt out on the ES330 and spark plugs.

Fun, some of the V6's you need to pull the cam sprocket to clear off a steel plate that blocks part of the water pump. I can't recall if the 3MZ does or does not have that.

That's correct - I'm going to replace the cam seals too while I'm in there. I want to make it good for another 90K miles.

Buy one of these, they're excellent at holding the cam shaft when you zap the sprocket bolt out and hold them nicely when torquing it back down to spec.

The smaller sizes are amazing for flare fittings, they fit any size even the between sizes and are much less likely to slip and round than standard vice grips. I have a large pipe I can slip over the handle of the 10LW for when I need to put the beans to something like a tierod nut.

laugh.gif Srsly you work for an alternator manufacturer? I've been working on figuring out if this would even fit the Celica for like....3 years off and on. Checking shaft dimensions, pulley applications, etc when I thought about it and wasn't already busy. Wasn't until I got a RockAuto closeout email that listed this Litens OAD rebranded as Dayco that said it would fit the Celica GT (because it fits later 1ZZ's) that I figured it would fit the GTS as well because Denso *probably* used the same alternator shaft because why wouldn't they? Good news is that I think they do because it's mounted. Now, I didn't have a way to hold the alternator shaft during assembly so here's to hoping that my 1300lb impact was able to smack on enough torque before the alternator rotating assembly spun (and the blue loctite) will be enough to hold it in place.

The OAD interested me because roughly 8-10lbs of mass at 3x crank speed is a lot of stored energy to slow down from 8,000 RPM to 5,000 RPM when shifting. It's a lot for the belt to absorb, it's a lot for the tensioner to absorb. And there must be some benefit to these devices for efficiency because it seems like every new car has one, maybe I'll pickup up a MPG, maybe it'll be able to shift a little faster, maybe my expensive belt tensioner will last longer, maybe I just wasted $40 and it'll do nothing. I'll find out later today probably.

Oad's are usually installed when there is an issue of throwing belts or 'chirps' upon engine shutdown. Can be a problem on diesels with larger alts. The cause is exactly what you described, lots of rotating inertia. They arent popular with car oems because of cost. However what is becoming common is damper pulleys, which fix issues with violent tensioner movements and belt flutter on the slack side

*fights urge to spew random pulley facts. Will save for meet lol

Posted by: Bitter Apr 7, 2019 - 4:49 PM

Haha we can derail this thread like a thrown belt.

It's a Litens model resold by Dayco, Litens applications for their OAD include a bunch of cars, I see the one way pulleys on many cars but I've never tested to see which are just one way and which have the spring to dampen as well. This one def has a spring to dampen in it. I dunno, waste of $40 maybe lol that's like what, one tank of 93? Pfft whatever.

I maintain that I had a strong hunch and was not at all surprised by that, as much as I see you lurking the GT4 stuff here.

Got home 3:35am-ish.

Thanks Jordan for that energy drink, it probably helped.

Posted by: Bitter Apr 21, 2019 - 9:26 AM

Like meth in a can, glad you got home safe and hope everyone else did as well.

They found the five year old boy that went missing. Unfortunately, he's not alive. I would bet anything that his scum bag parents killed and dumped him. So disgustingly sad. His body was found this morning about 9 miles from my house. There's a press conference at 1:00 today.

If anyone would like to partake, I plan on kidnapping the parents and torturing them in my basement.

Where his body was found:

Press conference just ended. Both of the parents are in custody and going to prison for murder. They knew where the body was based on cell phone pings and the parents then showed police where the body was buried.

Let's hope they get treated like **** in prison.

Chris, I found your dream car.

Posted by: bloodMoney Apr 25, 2019 - 7:24 AM

I'm not allowed to do that.

Plus, I already have my dream car.

Fine, dream car for that pit crew you seem hell bent on making with Stacey.

Posted by: bloodMoney Apr 25, 2019 - 8:31 AM

My co-pilot is adorable.

We just needed a second one for Stacy.

Posted by: Bitter Apr 25, 2019 - 12:06 PM

Lol. My copilot is an empty seat. She doesn't like the fast curvy because hard braking makes her sick. Tho we'll have the dogs back after this weekend so they should be out at the next meet with us! I meant to offer you a spin but I guess it'll pale in comparison to the current GT4, cept maybe for the brakes. I hope you get that sorted out and working like they should be.

Alright. Pics are up. Doing things a little bit different this time. Not gonna make a whole long post with pics. I put some pics on the 6gc facepage but it was mostly just the car pics. We've compiled all the pics into an online gallery via our website. Alls you guys need to do is just log in with an email to view and download.
There are the full resolution images if you want to have those and use for wallpaper or print out etc. There is also the social media resolution files that are a bit smaller and easier to upload for facepage, tweeter, instamasomething. etc. ENJOY!! the waterfall ones and the race up the stairs were my favorites. lol

also you can print through that link if you really like a certain one, it's quick and simple and can be done all while viewing the photos. smile.gif

Posted by: bloodMoney Apr 26, 2019 - 9:39 AM

These pics are perfect. They should be in a pamphlet that we use to try to get folks to show up.

laugh.gif yes totally! that way people will remember to bring waterproof shoes/change of shoes. I guess we can't blame Norberto since we left the warning off this meet. laugh.gif

GREAT photos! I like the platform you shared them on too, I liked being able to scroll through them with my mouse wheel. That's one sexy group of people and cars. smile.gif

That's awesome, thanks Chee

I kept saying it on the hike, and at dinner, I really needed last weekend. I just didn't realize how much I needed it until we were there with you guys smile.gif

Posted by: cheela Apr 26, 2019 - 3:07 PM

I'm glad you guys like this setup. Since we've got our website and business up and running, this is one of the few perks lol. easy storage and access. I think I will continue to do this from now on.

Posted by: Bitter Apr 26, 2019 - 6:09 PM
