The GM trucks are probably the best of the bunch by a very small margin. They are prone to brake line rust in heavy salt climates though. I have an 05 Ram 1500 4x4 with the Hemi, it's got 109k on it now and is just starting to need attention. Wheel bearings, ... more »

Cool, thank you. If I have a work trip next August or September I'll definitely bring the bike and try Winter Park. Yeah, I follow the radio station KSMT on facebook and saw that the snow makers are already running up there.

Before he switched to Yamahas, Robbie Maddison was doing distance jumps and FMX stunts on a CR500AF. I've definitely seen video of him backflipping one before.

Yeah, I'm not going to answer if it's okay because I don't want to give bad advice and have your engine blow up because of it. I will say if you did the squish test and the clearance is greater than .100" I would personally be okay running it, but I ... more »
Added reply in a thread piston top clearing cyl top 10/4/2014 3:32 PM
I personally would look at the head side and measure the gasket thickness before worrying about it. Most 2 strokes have no quench area to speak of so they will have plenty of piston to head clearance even if the top of the piston is protruding above ... more »

Those are awesome videos and even more awesome scenery. Which one of the 3 was your favorite? I travel to Dillon/Silverthorne a couple times per year for work and could bring my Trek hardtail pretty easily. Think as a beginner without a full suspension ... more »

Yeah, that's definitely a CR500 engine.

For reference, a Tundra is a half ton truck. It is in the same class as an F150 or 1500 Ram or Silverado. A 350 is a much heavier duty truck with better brakes, suspension, higher load rating, etc.

Yeah, unfortunately 100% not kidding. Everybody doesn't like to hear him repeat the story! I guess after 24 hours or something it had already started to set up so when he pulled it apart he heard a "pop" from the already healing bone being broken again. ... more »

My buddy broke his riding mountain bikes. He went to the doctor and there was a difference in shoulder length of something like .5" on the broken side. The doctor said they usually don't do anything until it's .75" or bigger difference from side to side. ... more »

The Sprinter has 2 different diesel engines now, their little 4 cylinder is excellent.

Yeah, I should have been more specific. I wasn't counting chassis cabs, and the different powertrains and axle ratios have different GCWR's. Both of their engines are 1,000lbs short of our GCWR on the 3.2 and 500lbs short of the 3.5. I've seen several ... more »

You have the choice of 2 different lengths and 3 different roof heights on the fullsize Transit, plus 3 different powertrain options. It has a higher weight rating and towing capacity than the Promaster, too.

It really depends on the policy, but every normal street vehicle policy seems to exclude any event that is timed (i.e., a race...). For automobiles you can definitely buy specific on-track insurance, though. Lots of guys with big dollar race cars have ... more »
