Those Britons have designed some real gems. This Jaguar was also my favorite car in the 90s and early 2000 years. It’s a monster but still a great car for the daily use on the streets. The Saleen S7 looks not much different.

How about this rascal:

Bei diesem Gumpert Apollo handelt es sich um das Fahrzeug, welches anlässlich der Ausstellung auf dem Genfer Autosalon 2009 als absolutes Einzelstück gefertigt wurde. Dieses Fahrzeug hat am 13.08.2009 auf der Nordschleife einen Rundenrekord aufgestellt für straßenzugelassene Fahrzeuge mit einer Zeit von 7:11,57 Minuten. Der Apollo ist umfangreich dokumentiert.

well, that bumper looks like ‘rascal’ haha i  don’t even know that brand so i just googling and this one is kind of interesting tho.

With twin-turbo Audi power and a claimed top speed of 224 mph, this thing means business.

A lot of excellent car manufacturers out there, but the Jaguar XJ220 will always be a timeless classic.

on April 6, 2019

absolutely.

The funny part is, I liked to play Gran Turismo 2/3 (PS2) and I also used often the Jaguar aside of many more great cars. Now, all those cars evolved to oldtimers or  classic cars which increased their value.

also i used to play Assetto corsa that similar with Gran Turismo, and i’m always used jaguar xj200 and many other old ones. well, It took a while, but people starting to appreciate it

  • en The five principles: Wisdom of the Axial Age

  • These five principles form the foundation of just about every major religion and philosophical system which emerged in that incredible span of years from the 8th to the 3rd century BCE called the Axial Age when Taoism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Confucianism, Classic Greek Philosophy, and Christianity all flowered in the same time period. Why? Simple, it is because they are universal and when put into active practice in our daily lives they work.

    The practice of these principles will garb you in a suit of spiritual armor. Even in the midst of chaos and in the face of evil your heart will be unsullied, calm and serene.

    The five principles: Wisdom of the Axial Age

    1. Be compassionate. Compassionate in both thought and deed. Learn to recognize that the actions of others are often caused by spiritual pain. Avoid contempt. Avoid those mental judgments we always make of others. Compassion leads to harmony and harmony and balance is the key to inner peace.

    2. Be kind. Very simple. In every interaction, you have you have an opportunity to add to the sum total of good. No act of kindness or charity is too small. It does not matter if you receive gratitude. At times your acts of kindness will even cause resentment in others. That is their way. Let yours be kindness.

    3. Be Forgiving: Forgive others and mostly yourself. Forgiveness is not easy. It requires effort to let past harms and slights go. You may be perfectly justified in your anger, sorrow or resentment but it does not matter. Resentments do not harm the object of your resentment. They harm only you. Much of our spiritual disharmony is caused by our own self-contempt. We magnify our failings. We mull over our mistakes and shortcomings again and again. We compare ourselves to an impossible ideal and then hate ourselves when we fail to measure up. Forgive yourself. Let it go. There is so much that is good in you and tomorrow brings a new opportunity to achieve your dreams.

    4. Be Loving. When you have been compassionate, kind and forgiving you will sense a flood of a unique form of love. Love of all. It will well up within you and influence your every action. It will baffle and confuse others. People who would confront you, engage you in argument or dispute and who would transmit their own anger to you will be astounded when they see that you are unruffled. They will not know what to do. Your calm and peace will affect them.

    5. Be Accepting: You are not in control of the universe. Stop taking everything so personally. It is not all about you. Be humble before the majesty of the universe knowing that it is you and you are it. Things are often not going to go your way. You may be treated unfairly by others, or be the target of hatred or cruelty. You are not going to get everything you want. Accept this. Move on.

  • en Retro Bj4.3 part 3

  • Needed to see the B44.3 chassis to make a new chassis for this project. got the chassis along with the original Bj4 chassis. it’s the first time to see the original version. and I can see the wheelbase is identical to Bj4 worlds edition.

     

     

    B44.3 chassis is 4mm longer than B44’s. but still the Bj4 and B44 bodies fit the chassis. the structure is different for the front and rear bulkheads. Bj4 was built with Nitro TC3 parts. and B44 series has it’s own bulkheads and tranny, diff cups and more

    you can check the wheelbase here

    And, the under tray came from B44.2 Bulldog body set from Pro-line

  • en tweed princeton 5D2 came back to life

  • I came across this tweed princeton a couple of days ago. it had more than few issues with the pots, electrolytic caps, wires, grounding, input jacks and one of the resistors.

    and it sounds beautiful like a win instrument with the new components.

  • en Fender – Jensen speaker phase were reversed in 50’s tweed amps

  • I just tried 9V battery trick for 50’s Fender Champ 5F1 and Deluxe 5D3. and the speaker wiring turned out being reversed. both of them still have the factory wiring.

    And, both of them move backward (to the magnets) when they wired 9V + to the white wire, and – pole to the black wire.

    They mostly say there is no absolute speaker phase unless they are in the same cabinet. at the same time, many people say the speaker cones move forward when they hooked up in the right direction with 9V battery.

    Fortunately, 9V battery didn’t kill my 8″ Champ speaker, nor 12″ Deluxe speaker. but I’ve read some cases this trick killed their speakers.

    I’m not sure with 50’s and 60’s Jensen speaker’s correct phase. but, I started to believe Fender hooked them up this way. I’ve seen only 2 cases. and will update if I come across any Jensen speaker with different phase.
