Solid advice. I've got a magnesium-case '77 915 that's been mated to a 3.6 for 17 years now. I go to the track at least 10x per year. (Yikes!)

I like the idea of the Saturn cover.

Nowadays, GPS/cell-tower based locators are pretty cheap. My car sends me an email whenever it leaves a pre-defined circle around my garage.

That's what I do. And what I'll continue to do.

Idle question on transaxle maintenance: How full is full?

In 19 years, I've done a bunch of fluid changes on my 915. I always add to the point where fluid starts coming out of the fill hole. But I recently made a pump-reservoir-thing to fill it, and it...

I wonder what happened with their manufacturer to produce those failures? It's surprising, because LiFeP04 is so much less prone to overheating than the other common lithium batteries. Oddly, its...

Is Monday-morning engineering a thing? Care to evaluate my camper lift?

I recently put together a way to lift up a camper above my driveway so I could park a car underneath it. It's been working without a hitch for awhile now, and I believe it's safe and stable. But I...
