Have you guys seen the movie "Joker"? I took my 80 yr old mum in law, wife, daughter and her boyfriend. Strange, the only person that found it boring was my daughter. Anyway, when we walked out, made the comment about the movie is more about "ANTIFA" than the "Joker". It show how unhinged the "Leftists" are.
Anyway, here is a good critic of the film. I can say he is pretty much spot on.
Wheel Standing Comp. Who can make the longest Wheelie... Some good old USA V8 Muscle noise.
Gnome Aircraft Engine.
Why is interesting? Is a called a Rotary Radial Engine, used in WW1 Aircrafts. The entire engine spun like a Flywheel. The propeller was attached to the Engine "Block", the Crankshaft fixed attached to the Airframe. How do you control the speed of the engine? By cutting the ignition On and Off, just like a rev limiter.
Why WW1 Pilots wore Scarfs and Goggles? Because is a 2 fold. The Scarf is to keep themselves warm but also served as a rag to wipe their googles.
Those engines had 1 Exhaust Valve and worked similar to a 2 Stroke Engine. The exhaust was full of oil and burnt fuel.
Why they use such engines? Power to Weight Ratio and the entire engine worked smooth (a bicht to balance) and kept the engine power even (Flywheel effect).

November 7, 2009, finally got the engine running right. It has an ignition selector switch that allows it to run at 1/2 power, 1/4 power, and 1/8 power. This engine will be used in a replica 1918 Nieuport 28.
That little thing that we take for granted.
They had a very rudimentary sort of carb that would only mainly change mixture. The main rev control was a blip switch on the stick, if you wanted slow revs then hold the blip switch down in longer intervals, full power for climb leave your thumb off the switch. If you watch old movies of alrcraft with rotary engines (Lots, Fokkers throught to Sopwiths) if they are not redubbed you will hear the engines revs being controlled with the cutout switch. They appeared to have very good performance, watching those old clips you could see the likes of a Fokker Triplane take off in about 50 metres.
The likes of a Camel could turn one direction almost instantly but was very slow the other way due to torque due the spinning mass out front.
Rotarys had a TBO (Run to overhaul time) of 50 hours!!!!!
I know, the flywheel effect prevented then from turning on one direction. Nevertheless, brave men that flew those things without comfort, parachutes or body armor.
Looks like these guys fitted the 304 in a Kingswood Station Wagon.
There are open and shut cases, and there's this one, the purchase and crush case. This is so wild it's hard to believe it's real. Apparently a man named Daniel Gagliardi bought a rusted-out 1970 Dodge Charger project car with the intent to flip it. Contacted by The Drive, Gagliardi said he bought the car for $4,200 and listed it for $8,500. "It was a complete car," he said, "not missing a single thing inside, out, underneath, under the hood, wasn't missing a damn thing. Had fender tag, VIN tag, clean title." Instead of negotiating with serious buyers, Gagliardi told the outlet a stream of jokers jerked him around for six months. The time-wasting took a toll, and after 180 days of "no-showers, thousands of no-showers, and a whole bunch of flakers" who didn't have the decency to bring a decent offer and cash, he decided to teach them all a lesson.
So he destroyed the car, filmed the destruction, and cheered it on.
Daniel bought the car for $4,200 and wanted to sell it for $8,500 but destroyed it instead out of spite.
Daniel is a d**k head ... don't be like Daniel ...
I thought his name was Richard (lol). That was a $4,200 USD spat, a dumb ass US Bogan.
Anyway, a moron, probably used Craiglist and his Meth-Head friends as potential buyers.
