a guy named Jimmy in the north woods of New Mexico does
Kinda. Now that I've learned that the predicted low temp is consistently about 10 degrees too high.

Which I definitely have no problem with.

Oh NO! Not that guy!

Trying out the Milodon 180 tstat, seems to initially open around 170 so I’m sure I will end up throwing a code after a few more trips. Dont know how much I care anymore, prefer to run up to and around 200 degrees versus 206-219 all the time so I may just live with the code. Interesting design, looks like a quality piece! And then here’s a few photos from a recent local event. 41k miles and loving the car more all the time! I did kill that 2014 modified M5 btw ;) View attachment 141077 View attachment 141078 View attachment 141079 View attachment 141080 View attachment 141081 View attachment 141077 View attachment 141078 View attachment 141079 View attachment 141080 View attachment 141081
My temp will go to 195 if not moving then drops to 185. I think all the 180 stats will run at 185

Some of the old guys may recall that the Taurus SHO was actually faster on 87 than 93. The engine was able to get more hp from the faster burning low octane fuel. Never heard of any other car being able to do that.
That was a cool car. My buddy in highschool brought his dad's (4th gen, I'm a zoomer) into our auto tech shop a few times for some basic service. Back when 365 HP was mind melting.

I think I tossed them all from that race, it was just index racing in an 11.50 class(would be like 10.50 at sea level) so it’s a lot of peddle dancing at the top end of the strip. That BMW was my first race, second race was against a Tesla and I broke out on an 11.47 run crossing the traps while hitting the brakes - bummer because I was way ahead of him too :( I killed him at the tree and was up many car lengths at the 1/8 mile so I kind of coasted and then hit the brakes - just a little too late!!!

HEY!


Did you get a lift???


:eek:
Sometime next week. According to UPS from here to Shitsville, CA must have “severe weather” causing delays. This was how I got the by-pass pipes changed at one of my neighbors house… she will be ready to rock

Hope the forecast pans out and your track days are perfect! Crazy to think about how old that tstat could be, probably 10 years! Thing is I used to get one and swap it in and out for years and never had a problem, past few years though this one has always broke now! This is the one I have been buying forever:


https://www.amazon.com/Jet-Performance-10183-JET-Thermostat/dp/B001CHG19O/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?crid=34YRZ8ED45MWJ&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.BTvLuQ6BwAlQ9y4haJiGOv6qOx9pH7sowCBbabIf9Y3Mh7mYgFW-EQhSYXQkrWIolqO5lYWOn8tZtKBgMaKIDN16EyMX-_7WeOcKM0BDb-tZR1sIJFtd7tUcbRSQJISH803W0HWHFXk7-HzWnTnZ-6XM8aicpyRQKMFHgjGTVAamew663lvEG1x0pUAaO6V0.VrpQl0RoY8vYCwIs8skP6ezneo6S5dO7BVSiUlajm1g&dib_tag=se&keywords=jet+10183&qid=1718848894&sprefix=jet+10183,aps,142&sr=8-1

it just runs and also initially opens in the perfect temperature range. Can’t trust it now though.

Jet 10183 and back in the day Motorad 4128 and Motorad 4127 were always the good ones.
As you are probably seeing, this crap breaks down on Saturday late. Looks like it could be a fun day on Monday. I am hauling one of the Vette club officers up with me.😝 They have seen the little Mopar many times and still welcome me. Amazing.

That thing is one of those I think one of us paid like $15 for back in the old ages. It is either that Jet or that Jet labeled as a Moto. I don’t want to spoil anything so won’t say anymore good stuff about it.

Funny they were less than $20 back in the day and never failed!

Well I just keep having good luck, drove over a very sharp rock apparently(probably - may have been spinning at the time ;) ) and this required a new rear tire, it was covered under the warranty. I don’t disagree, steel belts popping up underneath the puncture.

And a couple more pics got posted from the last “time trial event” :). I literally drove away from that M5

I always smile when I see a narrow body do good! Of course I am prejudice! WB's do have their fans.

For top speed runs they need them, blowing from the rear to help offset the worse aerodynamics.

Got the road course dust off, cleaned it up, and up on the new QuickJack.

Did you replace your old QJ with a new one?
