That is insane for French doors. How big are they? I had a 6' wide Andersen French door put in this summer and I thought those were expensive at ~1/10 that price. But they are damn nice doors, and much better than the ancient falling apart slider that was in there. » 9/02/14 11:52am Today 11:52am

1. Sunroof adds a lot of weight up high which is bad for driving dynamics. There are two kinds of sunroofs, those that leak and those that will leak. Good choice to save weight and avoid water leaks in an electric car. » 8/29/14 3:59pm Friday 3:59pm

I'll raise you a Michigan summer. We went camping in Marquette, Michigan for Memorial Day and there was still ice on the lake. A lot of ice on the lake if my picture decides to show up. » 8/26/14 4:02pm 8/26/14 4:02pm

Consider looking at the 6.8 for an AR. It is a lot more useful than 5.56 with no difference in recoil. It also has way less recoil and is cheaper to shoot than the .308 plus it's the AR-15 platform so much cheaper to build/buy than an AR-10. » 8/22/14 10:08am 8/22/14 10:08am

Just convince James Glickenhaus or Michael Stoschek that they needs this. After seeing what they pulled off with the P4/5 and New Stratos respectively I suspect either one of them would be willing to jump on this beauty. » 8/20/14 4:31pm 8/20/14 4:31pm

The problem with steam is the time and energy it takes time to build steam. You would have to start with water, and it takes a significant amount of energy to turn water into steam. If you are burning fuel, the rate you can make steam is limited by the amount of energy in the fuel and how fast you can burn it. … » 8/19/14 4:44pm 8/19/14 4:44pm

Thanks for posting, that brings back memories. We used to go to the Willow Run airshow every year when I was a kid. I'm having flashbacks to a full afterburner F-14 flyby. IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!! » 8/19/14 4:01pm 8/19/14 4:01pm

With the lead locomotive completely dead and no other locomotives running, the air brake system slowly bleeds pressure until the combined air brakes and seven hand brakes can no longer hold the train on the ~1% descending grade.

I don't think you'd see any significant difference in cylinder wear. The frictional loading will be the same regardless of whether or not there is a combustion event. The thermal loading probably wouldn't be all that different either. The block will conduct heat internally very well and the coolant will do a good… » 8/18/14 4:30pm 8/18/14 4:30pm
