That's the Beauty of Hotrod and race.
Every one is Right.
Everyone is wrong.
Everyone can Win
All can Lose.
Truth is only 1 guy crossed the Finish Line 1st.

If it Blew up not my problem.
We discussed prior.
:rolling:

That's why you're such an awesome mechanic. :thumbsup:

Yes, why certainly. Let's just leave sunny Florida and go to the murder capital of America and freeze our asses off while driving over pothole infested, crumbling highways brought about by decades of liberal bullshit. Where the only ones supposed to have guns are the criminals. Gun control my flaming ass. Street racing idiots putting my family's life in danger. Yep, sounds like a real fun place. Wiz and I will move right up there...…...or not.

But, but I showed you my 15 a.s.e. certifications.

I have shown you I am fluent with all aspects of this industry.

I have bragged endlessly on the types of cars I am working on and what I am doing to them.

I have bragged on staying at this job for 9 years. With all these credentials.

You need to stop belittling and berating me already, kid.:laughing:

Going to die turning wrenches or on a Chassis dyno.
Don't think that shop will be there in 20 years.
May be wrong.

Well ya, That's why all the credentials. It's the difference between a career and a job. You must still think a career is just a really long job, huh? :laughing:
I had to pass thousands of Tests in College to earn my Associates in Electronics Technology.
I also took Auto mechanics at the same time.


Passed hundreds of tests in the GM dealerships.


Passing all ASE tests for Master Auto, L1 Advanced driveabilty, Master Engine Machinist & Assembler was a piece of cake for me.
Masters I studied for 1 hour only before leaving for Peoria.
Looked at Vintage GM service manuals to relax my mind.
Bill had me ready prior for years to pass them.


I have always been book smart.


Like whatever to me.


Racecars more important to me.

Mickey Thompson was one of the greatest mechanics of all time most do not know that.
That's a hard thing to say for someone who died on the other side of the information age. Did you know that the Graphics Processing Unit(GPU) was invented in 1999? The good CAD design software really needs powerful GPU's to drive the 3d virtual world in which they operate. If anybody from before were to come back to life today they would think we have super powers with our ability to immediately access any information we need or connect to anybody right there in our pocket. To order and pay for something in just a quick moment in the same fashion.

And the undeniable truth that you need to come up in our time to learn the right procedures of the day and to be fluent with the tools of the day to be able to be good in that day. Right? Mickey Thompson would not be able to cut it as a mechanic today.

Could you imagine? He would have to learn how to use a scantool. Do you understand how profound of a statement that is to make about a mechanic? He was one of the greatest, sure. But of all time, not by a long shot. Kid. Because times and tools change.

Or better, How about having a discussion with Mickey Thompson about a 5 axis VE table. He'd look back at you like you were stupid. Because there were no variable cams driven by a PWM circuit controlling oil pressure. There were no electronic lifters for displacement on demand in his time. And there was no 4 digit fuel pressure in his days. But we have it in every current corvette made. And every tech working on it has a general knowledge of it that can be fine honed on a whim by reaching in their pocket.

We are the greatest Mechanics of all time. The mechanics today that are good at working on today's cars. Because by reaching in our pocket we can work on anything from before. The best mechanic from before can only reach in their pocket for a bag of nuts.

You Really are nuts too Wiz.
Your gift is computers and EFI Tuning.

I read today there was a Computer in the Challanger 1.
In the Tail section.
For recording 10 mile top speed salt flat runs.
Might have been Vacuum Tube circuitry and Nixie tubes.
Hexadecimal counters were already invented.
From WW2 era Computers.

Also used R×C time constant circuits.

4 Transmissions and 4 clutches had to be shifted at once.
All 4 engines had to turn same Rpms under load.
4 Vertex magnetos.
4 Hilborn constant flow mechanical injections.
1960 4 GMC 6-71 superchargers.
Junkyard tubing from a WW2 Airplane junkyard.
Mickey drew chalklines on the concrete floor.
It was the Blueprint of Challanger.
All came from his brain.
No computer.
The Human mind.
