Re: From Aviation Typists Part xxxx

And then there is this:
Quote = Wikipedia

The Premier I is constructed with a high-strength composite, carbon fiber/epoxy honeycomb structure fuselage.
No wonder it is damaged beyond repair. :roll:
In the interest of fairness, I wish to point out that geese are also made of composites.

Re: F.A.O.: Gabriel

Evan and Gabe may disagree- but for an aircraft carrier ...I would be very ok with 3000 PSI straight to the brake pads! Well... when trying to land an aircraft with a 195-foot wingspan on a deck with ~120' clearance from the runway centerline to the superstructure, directional control could be impo...

Re: How does one copy a CD...

Can the unit in your car play MP3s (on a CD)?

If so I'd suggest ripping said CD to MP3 files, then do the same with a few of its friends, then burn the MP3s onto a data disc and use that in the car.

I will bet an adult alcho-beverage that a control lock was in place.

Re: Major Achievements

I'm pretty sure it wasn't URO since I know they're awful. I don't really remember but I'm about 75% confident it was Meyle - their quality seems to be pretty random. Whenever possible I also prefer to buy the same manufacturer as the OE part. Unfortunately aftermarket parts support for older Audis i...

Re: Major Achievements

Why would I want to pay top dollar on new parts that will outlive the rest of the car? Gosh...maybe because the used parts you just put in there are in no better shape than the ones that came out or at least won't be in better shape for very long, so you may have to do the job again and buy the par...
