  • am i the only one that noticed at 3:01 the float needle is drawn totally wrong? float goes up, lets more fuel in, down, blocks fuel. 3 letter acronyms are the bane of my existence, ecm, pcm, dme, esp, afs, esc, slightly better after obd2, but more and more computerized systems require more acros. hundreds, as only emissions controls are DOT / EPA mandated standards. L1 ASE, but tinker with 2 stroke, carburetor, points for fun.

  • Wait, is that part with Transaxle true? In my native language it describes a transmission that's positioned at the other Axle than the engine, like having the engine in front and the transmission in the back, like e.g. Porsche 924, 928, 944, 968, Mercedes SLS, or Nissan GTR R35. Because having transmission and axle in one housing is very common for all FWD cars, all 911 models and many rear-mid-engined cars. It feels unnecessary to have a term for that.

  • You covered camber but not toe or the very misunderstood caster. Also blinker fluid is a great way to pad the repair bill a little but piston return spring replacement will add a boat payment.

  • you guys forgot about muffler bearings! super important for your exhaust system to tune the sound of your engine to different notes. also 3 inch sky hooks to keep your care from pushing to hard into the ground in other words keeps it from squatting.

  • Hey nolan It's the monotone for me. Its the 8th grade recess comedy you keep trying for me. Its the consistently boring vessels for ad revenue that you seem to consider as "content" from you, when the entire rest of the donut team is killing it with real content while also sneaking in the ads, for me. Btw donut, sorry being such a meany to nolan and thanks for working tirelessly to produce otherwise engaging and entertaining content.
