    CCF: EU Edition

    It's Friday for me and I'm watching Boris Becker singing horribly on his TV show. I wished there was background music to mask the awfulness, but of course not.

    Other station- some sort of telegameshow. The chick is only wearing a fishnet top and she's really "stacked".

    You know, I once dated his cousin...really. Because I know how these Homers think, I will specify she was a female. Anyway, she was one athletic chick....lives somewhere outside Munich now- maybe 2 hours away. If I had some pics of her, I'd contribute but unfortunately, that's all the silly trivia I have. Ah, memories....

    I can't even bring myself to watching that show. German TV is ****. Most of it is CSI overdubbed, then the rest is German knockoffs of CSI in Leipzig.

    I'm watching Kung Fu on Vierte now and it looks actually pretty good.

    That's not bad. It's not within the guidelines, but let's just say that it's a video of Ron Jeremy, and he has to "find" his target. You do the math.

    That's good enough for me!

    Good thing about German TV: Formel 1 on the weekend. US coverage left a lot to be desired.

    Out here, we also have city road bike races from time to time, a pretty cool thing to sit through. At night and especially on weekends, the city center is packed with people trolling around or there for the cultural shows.

    So Criss,

    What do you do for tools? And I don't mean stop by the Turner forum.

    I brought all of my tools over, which includes a large portion of high end stuff. Within a few weeks here, I needed Ausentorx bits. The Autoteile store was selling Chinese crap for way too much, then I went to the Baumarkt and saw some stuff there for cheaper, but because the Baumarkts in the US sell crappy tools, I passed. Finally, going on the street and asking person after person, I got to an industrial tool supplier that sells to mechanics and I picked up a set of Proxxon Ausentorx bits, the same company as the Baumarkt and cheaper than the Chinese crap by 50%. The quality seems decent, so either they are good, or they sell crap to the mechanics and that's what they use because it seems like American tools are better finished and look better quality (and no, I don't mean the Craftsman crap, outside a few items).

    Ratchets here are terrible, though. All use those neoprene grips and look like what we would have as your first beginner's tools.

    What's your take?

    Have either of you been to an F1 race in person? While I lived there, I went to the Nurburgring in Sept 04 for the Ferrari Racing Days - the Ferrarri F1 team was there as part of the event and rolled out a couple of their F1 cars for a few hot laps. Being on pit road as those things would scream (literally) down the front straight away and then blip the engine down a few gears for the corners was awesome. 14,000ish rpm is something to behold.....not the raucous raw 6,000hp fire breathing noise of the NHRA races I watched at Rockingham, NC - but cool in it's own way.

    (short message about to leave for lunch )


    yeah.. for the moment I have been using Proxxon bits and a couple of their ratchets... they are pretty good for the price (online of course )....I am not super picky about my tools, but I do like to have decent ones....

    online for sure you can find the nicer tools for a lot better prices than at the Baumarkt (if there are any nice tools at the Baumarkt at all )

    When you come back I want some names of some good quality German ones. Facom comes up, but it was not available at two suppliers. They cancelled their distributorships in favor of Proxxon.

    I'm a whore for good quality tools. I never scrimp there. It's cheaper to buy better, the way I see it.

    It's warm today. Think I'm going to lie under the A/C for a couple hours.

    yeah... warm..luckily I just bought a fan for my office... no AC in the office over here (only in the server rooms of course)


    Facom seems to be good (owned by Stanley Tools now, I think)...Hazet has also some nice stuff.... I am not experienced on "quality stuff"..... but the Proxxon stuff I have gotten seems pretty durable...my first bit set is like 4-5 years old now and only the 5mm hex/allen is starting to look worn....

    I haven't been to "the Ring" yet...but it's about 90 mins. away from here...I gotta go sometime


    I also like WRC and the German Rally takes place also within 30 minutes from where I live

    Hazet is good and expensive, and so is Wiha. Some of my good bits are from Wiha, and they just last years. Mechanic's tools and electronics.

    You should also check Conrad. They have some ridiculous 300 meg catalog with everything from Radio Control Cars, boats, and planes, to car stereo, tools, power supplies, and more. We have one near our main Bahnhof.

    Sucks for you to not have A/C. Even though we only needed it for a few days this year, it was welcome and worth the money and the effort to make an intake/exhaust panel for the window. In my opinion, more people in Germany should have A/C. If you know what I mean from standing on line at the store, anything to make these people sweat less would be welcome

    Criss, make a trip out here for a weekend. You can stay with us, check out to city, and of course, RIDE. We have closet space for another shitty bike, so don't worry.

    I'm not, but want to see an F1 race, but likely when I make a contact that can get me in there.

    In the meantime, we have these all over town:

    We have one near the HBF too... but I usually find better prices elsewhere

    yeah... most people/companies here don't use A/C out of "green"/energy saving principles.... I agree with that...but I do love A/C on a hot humid day

    I'll send over my number when I find it. It's something like +0349509559675670469576057657605975067509675096757 56576590760597649576092345-245, so understandably, it's hard to remember. We decided to do Ja! prepaid from Toom! and Rewe and it seems like a good deal for us.

    Police and firefighters were called to the University of Texas' Jester Hall to free 26 cheerleaders who had crammed themselves into an elevator.
    A group of 14- to 17-year-olds attending Texas Cheer Camp in Austin decided to see how many girls they could squeeze into the elevator around 6 p.m. Tuesday, campus police said.

    Only JC could take a clown crap thread and turn it into an in-depth engineering thread in a parallel universe stylee....wie geht's?

    JC - love those British comparo videos, good way to waste a few hours on YouTube.

    You guys know - you can run your car (for a small euro fee ) on the long Nordschleif loop of the Nurburgring - it's a beautiful setting, castle on the hill, Tyrolian forest...

    Want to see some good driving videos - hard to beat the Motegi battles. I find the BMW M3CSL quite phenominal - an every day coupe that does a good job of hanging w/ the pure Italian thoroughbreds. Watch the heel/toe work - phenomenal. The Acura NSX, while underpowered, is a very balanced platform and that allows it to hang despite a significant shortage in the horsepower category.

    Also decided on Thai instead of Doner for dinner tonight. Better in the states, but it's hard to beat Doner anyhow.

    Ride tomorrow all day with maybe a biergarten run along the way.

    Very amusing how long it took a try hard sheep shagger from England to join the thread....

    Tidy, long time no hear, how are plans going...

    JC - odd to hear that you are struggling for good tools, thinking re German engineering etc.. Hope something comes up....

    JC, Cris - Hope we are not posting in a years time and you still havnt been to an F1 race. It is worth the effort in a bog way... I so want to attend a drag meet in the USA too though....

The mitsu took it in the straights and the turns, the audi got pole position (once by cheating ), but the mitsu was far faster. Think about what that lead would open up to given a little bit of time, in racing a few car-lengths over that relatively short race are an eternity.

    NOOOOOO, it's actually not the Coupe Quattro, but the Sport Quattro. At this point, it's so collectible, that I don't think I'll ever afford one. It was an extremely shortened version of the CQ, if anything, with much Kevlar, originating from 1982, that's why I mentioned how "close" the results were, since at that time, 320bhp was pretty unheard of. The car was made as a homologation special so they can have those Pike's Peak carts that Unser and others were winning on.

    And I do agree, the Mitsubishi would have been able to open up a big lead, though a car from the early 80's did quite well, considering even some Ferraris weren't underpowered, in preparation for another oil crisis that never happened. And don't forget the L69 engine with a whopping 190 hp saved the Camaro and Firebird from being overweight clunkers.

    The Sport Quattro had EFI, instead of CSI, was the first of the 20v engines, and had a k27 turbo. It would have greatly benefited from a newer turbo to reduce the lag, but nonetheless, I think it's still impressive for the era. If I had the money, it would be in my garage right now. 320bhp is 320 bhp, especially when many people in Europe are making do with 110 and still thinking it's too much and to fuel inefficient

    Which also reminds me: I'm trying to figure out how/who to reprogram my ecu to hold the supercharger clutch on for a higher duty cycle, so I could get some more power out of my engine. In the end, those MB Kompressor 4 cylinders were all the same 1.8 (there's some confusion in which years actually had what displacement, not denoted by badge ID), so I want to see what can be done, in terms of putting in a 230k ecu or reprogramming mine.

    Unlike you guys, we actually get to drive fast. 153 so far in our Turner Hauler.

    Tidy, long time no hear, how are plans going...

    ....
    It takes me a long time to do anything these days, I'm so old. The job I took to cut back on my travelling time means I'm not travelling as much internationally, just that I'm working my arse off over here...

    Plans are slowly coming together, we got quite a good score and we're checking out facilities. Still not 100% but each day moves a bit closer....

    TLL, nice work. I should get some of those shirts for my kids

    You ever bug the nurses to scratch in a certain place or sponge you down when you were sweaty? I know I would have taken advantage of that, especially since I know how bad nurses around here look.

    That's kind of why I said that I've always liked the coupe, because what was in the video was not the coupe.

    Yeah, it was an impressive run for an old car, and it's not news that AWD cars beat the crap out of super-horsepower cars on tracks with lots of turns,
    it happens quite often, but as I said, in the rear world the audi did not "hang" with the mitsu, it got pole position a few times, but the mitsu was faster in everything
    except possibly off the line, but I'll tell you that it's difficult to get the most out of a turbo AWD car off the line, you have to do things just right to really make it go to it's
    fullest and fastest potential. It was obvious when they were up to speed that the mitsu could take it in the turns and on the straights.

    BTW, I live in arizona. Trust me, we get to drive fast too.
