  1. Imagine that!

    Calculated risk. The various test cities were part of the "proof of concept" program which was put in place to learn what could go right and what could go wrong. Everyone was aware that there could/would be fatalities due to pedestrian and vehicle accidents. Uber must have had to provide a huge insurance policy. I wonder how difficult it will be to get states and cities to host the tests now. Dennis
  2. Imagine that!

    It was part of a test to see what could go wrong, after all. I'm sure Uber will have a lot of data to review after the lawsuit. As for driving in the Philippines, I did that for a year and a half and mostly had to dodge pigs, chickens, and guys with guns. Dennis

    You've been trying to adjust a modified engine to stock factory settings. That can be like trying to fit a size 12 foot into a size 10 shoe. The process of tuning the engine/carbs results in adjustments to settings to a point where it runs best. Sounds like you're finally just about there. Button that baby up and head out on the highway!

    There's a nice one on Amazon for less than $80. I may have to look into getting one of those, myself. My 45 year old non-digital dwell tachometer is probably a bit out of calibration at this point. Any brand recommendations? Dennis
  5. Imagine that!

    All part of the "growing pains" of any emerging technology. As they used to say in the early days of passenger flight back when flight attendants also had to be Registered nurses, "If God wanted us to fly, we woudda been born with boarding passes.".

    It would be interesting to look through 100 year old newspapers to see if the same type of conversations occurred when cars started replacing horse & buggy transportation. I guess we got through that in about a 25 year transition period. Dennis

    And that's why later ads had the black center spokes painted over grey closer to original rather than the black as first shown on eBay and CL? Sorry, not buying his new sincerity. Did he happen to say anything about refunding his customers? Dennis

    At this point, my eyes are beginning to bleed and Jalex is no closer to having a smooth running Z. Measurements and calculations just aren't working for him. I think Chuck's upcoming pictures may help more than anything. Dennis

    We seem to be flogging the deceased equine at this point. Jalex has asked for a picture about a half dozen times. He's not a native English speaker and appears to be a visual learner. Since I've been a credentialed teacher for 50 years, I'd like to make a suggestion. We need to visually define terms. We need to use one of the carb pictures and place an arrow point at the spot that we refer to as a NOZZLE. A top view would be best. Next we need to show a ruler graduated in 1/16 inch increments and indicate where 1/16 of an inch would be indicated. Finally, a carb diagram side view indicating where the 1/16 inch should be (difference between top of nozzle and top of fuel level). Then we can have a "check for understanding" moment and press on. Can someone use the pictures on this page to indicate that information? I think it would be a big help in moving this process along. Dennis

    www.iprcenter.gov might be a good place to start for anyone ripped off. Dennis

    I recently read a story about Nissan cracking down on counterfeit and "out the back door" parts shipped to the US. Wonder if they'd be interested in this rip off of their trademark. Dennis

    Seller offers a 14 day return policy....but with a 10% restocking fee. Sounds like a win/win for the seller on a $1,000 sale either way. Dennis

    Just when I thought we were nearing closure. Dennis

    Only concerns are termites and dry rot. Nice looking fun car, otherwise. Dennis
