  • Mk 3 jetta I just bought takes off as if it has VTec at 4k RPMS, Cam? Or adjustable gear?

    Through all gears when it hits 4k RPMS (it's a 5spd), it pulls hard all the way to redline. I'm trying to figure out which cam it has in it. Previous owner had no idea, he bought it that way. I might replace it but I would feel pretty stupid if I replaced it with the same cam. Lil help? I have experience in automotive and modding but this is my first European import so I'm in the dark...thanks.

  • No title cars for sale in Illinois?

    Ive been lookin for a beater to fix and drive since i dont have alot of money, but it seems like alot of them are being sold without titles. Is it easy to get a title for a car like these? In michigan i could file for a "lost title" and get one with just a bill of sale. Does it work like that here? I just moved here.

    I got out on Honorable terms. I have a bad shoulder and ptsd. But i hate being a civilian. I need to get medical insurance for my daughter, and need that stability back in my life.

  • Supply and demand, hybrid vehicles...?

    While i was dreaming of the 6 stoke engine that isnt out yet, and of a 2008 Tesla Roadster, I was thinking, with all the push to increase gas mileage by 2020, the demand for fuel will go down. It makes me think the oil companies will just raise prices even further to make up for the loss of sales. What do you think?

  • How much does it cost to advertise on a local "Fox" TV channel?

    Im doing a school project creating a business and want it to be accurate. I just never thought to ask this before, and dont even have the slightest clue. Fox's website doesnt give a price and I got on the phone with a sales rep and he didnt want to just give me a price he wanted a commitment. So i just hung up.

  • Disqualifiers, for from a career in Law Enforcement?

    Hi, im thinking about two career fields as i re-enter the civilian world in two weeks. One of which is a career in Law Enforcement. However, im afraid i will be turned away. When i got back from Iraq i was told i had PTSD and since i was over there i have problems sleeping. I only take one prescription for the sleeping issue, and non of this affects my work ethic, or my attendance ever. I really dont know which career i should pursue. I want to be a police officer always did, but im a good mechanic its what i did in the Army and i know it pays better and i dont have to put my life on the line. What to do?

  • Why cant i stop worrying about future employment?

    I've been active duty Army for almost 4 years, im getting out in 30 days, i've been accepted to a great technical school, and within 2 years i will be a certified mechanic with alot of experiance and knowledge and should be able to easily get a job with a large salary. But, all i can do is think about it. I feel this great fear of failure because of past failures. I cant function properly anymore, its interfering with my peronal life. Sometimes when i make a small mistake, i lose control of my emotions and anger turns into sobbing. When i get angry i cant get my thoughts out into proper speech. Thinking about bills, future salaries, current salaries, comparing salaries of my supervisors, and thoughts about what ill be able to provide for my family when i get out consumes me all day every day. I cant sleep at night without help from a sleep aid. Why cant i stop thinking about this? Is there a name for this? Im such a freak about this now, i even fear answers here...

  • With the facts that follow can i beat this ticket?

    I got a ticket for digging out in Texas. 95% of you are like "wtf is digging out?". In a normal state it would be called excessive acceleration. So heres 3 reasons Im considering contesting the ticket...A. It says "Digging out" on the printed ticket, clearly there is no such thing. Its hillbillly slang at best, otherwise defined as sending a collie down a fox hole to dig it out to kill it lol.....B. The 2 bike officers were on private property clocking people, I know in the state of Michigan this is against the law. Isnt it here?...C. I had my foot on the clutch, the transmission in 2nd gear, rolling at 15 mph, when i hit a curb, witnessed by the 2 officers, and my foot slipped off the clutch making my car fishtail and the tires spin. (I drive a modified 03 Mustang GT w/around 350 rwhp) So given the facts, do you think i can get it dismissed? If so what fact should i key on when i present it to the judge?

  • When will Jameel McCline stop boxing?

    When will this guy stop boxing or make an effort to actually win? Im tired of watching him get blown up. Maybe the question is when will Heavyweights fight someone else? This is getting rediculous.
