Re: What happened here

Petrol is petrol. (Until you start adding ethanol... >_>) ^_^ Car looks really well planted - there doesn't look like it has much left to give considering how compressed the front is. I really do like a bit of body roll to help define tire grip limits. That's definitely a smooth progressive input to...

Re: What happened here

The deer farms that I have seen usually have a decent size field with a bit of bush included to provide shelter for the deer. They get rotated around the farm like any other grazing animal and seem to be treated in much the same way. They are a bit skittish but over time they get used to normal far...

Re: What happened here

Deer became loose breakfast sausage. (Vs patties or cased sausage) Easier to freeze a couple pounds in a vacuum sealed bag. Saved all the ribs and legs/shanks/kidneys for my 15lb dog.

Re: 4A-C bogging

Potentially - adjust your plugs, wires, and rotor. (With fresh parts) I'd start easy and pull the plugs. Keep them in order so you can translate any damage or odd run conditions to that particular cylinder. Check and adjust gaps, clean and reinstall. (Or replace) Wires - can check resistance and mak...

Re: What happened here

With a few fiberglass molds and a cnc bent cage/chassis kit it might be doable.

I'm worried the car would be hideous with a modern approved roll cage though.

Small tires and a restrictor plate have long been the way to keep things under control.

Not a bad idea. Could probably pull up part photos on rockauto/toyota parts dealers and compare the connectors. Or take your current horn to a junkyard to mix and match. Worst case just solder/heat shrink the new connector onto your harness. I'd expect something like a tundra would have a substantia...
