Must be replaced.

Gentleman. Behold an SCCA Formula Super Vee engine.

Since it's not under any SCCA regs in a civilian car, time to see how far I can go with it.

I always wanted to throw a busa engine into a Smart Roadster... that or maybe a Scoobie Boxer.

Not a picture of mine, or even the color, but I'm in a 2015 Forester Limited I bought for a song from my father in law because my mother in law decided she didn't like it and wanted an Outback. I'm very interested in putting a modest couple-inch lift, bigger tires, skid plates and knobbier tires and stuff on it just to be weird. Doing a swap for an XT engine would be the cool, money-doesn't-matter thing to do but even if I could justify it, I'm still under warranty.

Not sure why.

Then again I REALLY want to have a workshop were I can build one of these with modern materials.

A general thread for some of the stranger vehicles to be put down on paper or built.

Starting with a tank concept by the H. L. Yoh company that involved putting the engine in the turret...because reasons.

yeah it has some comical shit glued on, but the odd thing is... the rotors really stand out. A bit too thought out looking, as I can't imagine them bothering to make a swashplate, which makes me wonder if under all that crap is actually a helicopter they purchased. I would have guessed some sort of ultralight kit plane, but I think it would be too complicated for that.
>> No. 21769 ID: 3e9aae
Yeah it looks kinda similar to the hub on a Schweizer 300 series.

Apparently the guy making all this stuff is some preacher selling Chinese kit cars as locally made.

I figured it was the rotorhead off an Alouette. Just based on it having 3 blades and the French doing a lot in west Africa. Seems to be missing the wires?

the way the rotors attach seems different and I doubt this guy had a budget for any French aircraft. I think it could be a Chinese knockoff of a Schweizer / Hughes family of light helicopters. Here is an image of one the Chinese call AC310, the way the rotors attach seems very similar, and this guy already works with the Chinese to "design and build" Chinese cars. If it is, then it is probably safe to assume it really is a jumble of spare parts and not a full aircraft being visually modified. Reason being I doubt he would go through the effort to modify the typical simplified tail on these helicopters. (tail rotor at the end of a straight drive shaft instead of a two part design required to have the rotor further up the tail.)

further reference, here is a Schweizer S269C. Looks like the Chinese copied it down to the bolt. Still not sure if this is what was used, just thought the blatant copying was amusing.

Maybe this isn't such an uncommon sight to you, oh reader, but I can't remember the last time I saw one of these in person. And it's such a neat aesthetic throwback to a time when vehicles could be boxy.

Just put in papers today on this.

There's a pretty active truckerfag community on /o/. It's a fun thread to lurk.

There doesn't appear to be a general motorcycle thread on the board, so here's one.

I'm strongly considering getting a motorcycle. It's not for the cool factor, but because they seem like extremely affordable, practical commuting vehicles. The only thing that would keep me from getting one is my local climate. Anybody here ride in the desert? What's it like wearing All The Gear, All The Time in the Mojave in August? How long can one ride when it's 106 degrees out before it becomes intolerable?
