First round of comp did not go well when the car started running poorly at random, we threw a ton of parts at it with no luck, but after some more digging we thing we found the problem. We not only fix it, but make upgrades to prevent it in the future, and of course do some test rips.

Thank you for being only one of the very few that are on US-first and bringing up the RPM act. I'm surprised more aren't bringing this up. I of course have signed it. Here's hoping more people bring attention to this. We will lose shops, tracks, content creators, people who aren't the rich being able to race and more if this part of the bill remains in there. Also great video as always. Keep up the great work.

When you change to ptfe remember that the pulse damping (injector opening and closing) of the rubber hoses will be gone so you might need a damper. I use gates barricade for e85 lines if you want to have a bit of rubber in there somewhere

Canceling motorsports over climate/pollution is not right. Look at China and India's pollution. It's WAYYY more than the united states/motorsports. Look at the huge corporations that choose to pollute because it saves them money. Besides electric cars, run on electricity...which is made at a powerplant that burns massive amounts of fossil fuels...BuT The PoLLuTIoN iS OUTtA SiGhT So ItS fINE. Just my two cents on the matter. Love the videos Taylor!

Instead of saying screw those diesel guys, while you also run catless exhausts, instead treat everyone that modifies vehicles for whatever reason with respect. If you throw certain segments of car folks under the bus, they certainly wont lift a finger when you're in the federal crosshairs next.

This seems to be an ongoing issue, why not run flex fuel, so when your not competing and the car sits, run it on 91. That way injectors dont play up when u need the car most.

If anything, motorsports should be the ONLY valid use for modern street cars. I've been saying this for years. Convert all the semis to electric or propane and you reduce emissions or greenhouse gasses significantly, right? And most public transportation buses are switching to cleaner fuels. Idk why every family thinks they need multiple daily driver/grocery getters in their driveway. Issue every family an electric passenger vehicle and give them public transportation bus/train passes. Make all Uber and Lyft cars electric. Leave the diesel and petrol to the enthusiasts.

lets take a moment here in midst of all the craziness to remember this only impacts STRICT RACE CARS. it does not mean there is no more motorsports all together. you just cant use non-street vehicles. so everyone can still go race their daily drivers or street legal registered insured plated vehicles. all the custom built cars and tube cars can still race etc. its not as bad as everyone is making it out to be people just dont understand the legal wording of it

Are you seriously telling me that the EPA are trying to ban car modifications because it’s harming the environment, but will continue to allow the venting of CFC refrigerants into the atmosphere? The USA still allows the use of R22 was banned in the UK 11 years ago because it actively damages the ozone layer and is a direct cause of global warming... I’m absolutely disgusted that the EPA are even considering banning anything to do with cars before banning the use of CFCs. Also, why is the USA not pushing for incentives to buy cleaner cars? This would literally solve all their issues

About that rpm act, i think my country is doing almost the same thing but more foolish i think. They'll give $2000 tickets/jail to whoever that changes/modified their exhaust from what came from the factory, changes the wheel size from whatever came from the factory, whoever lowered their cars from whatever came from the factory. But drunk driver who hit people and cause death, only charged with $1000 tickets. Sounded stupid to me.

clean air act doesnt say anything about motorsports and the only source saying that it does comes from a site called "critical scientists" and critical means to dumb to read. ive read the act, i'm not even in the US and nowhere there is mentioned that you cant build a racecar. its just saying that you cant sell devices for road use that are specifically meant to disable emissions stuff on the car - no performance part ever is designed to do just that, they are primarily designed to gain more power.

In the end the act should pass and we can deal with the fine points later OBVIOUSLY THEY WILL NOT JUST REMOVE RACING FOREVER

When we look at pollution, North America as a whole, when it comes to motor sports, is so small, the amount it affects when compared to a traffic jam daily in LA, is n-o-t-h-I-n-g. If people are really worried about pollution, look at industry in Asia. Look at countries that don’t give a shit about the environment. Why target motor sports?? What a joke. If I was American, I’d sign the RPM deal. I’d create multiple accounts to sign it. I really hope this shit gets vetoed.

As for the full-moon for the night of Al-Qadr which is better than a thousand months for the upcoming month of Ramadan for this year of yours 1442 surely it is on the evening of Sunday - night of Monday; which means after sunset on Sunday which is the night of Monday. Perhaps the entire astronomers among the humans the Muslim and the disbeliever of them would like to say: “O Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni, this is the impossible, because night of the full-moon is itself the fore-beginning of the lunar month and it is itself comes the night of middle of lunar month, so it seems that you are ignorant about the astronomical of physics calculations! O Nasser Mohammad,don’t you know that the dark phase (Muhaq) of the moon of Shabaan will be at the fifth hour and thirty one minutes on Monday at dawn? Surely this is impossible for the middle night of the month of Ramadan for this year of ours 1442 to be after sunset of Sunday which is the night of Monday? This astronomical science of physics is in finest precision the entire scientists of the astronomical of physics do not dispute over it even in one second! And it is an international moment called the central pairing (alignment) for the sun and (Muhaq) moon in dark phase and (Muhaq) dark phase moon for Month of Shaban would never occur except on Monday dawn at the fifth hour and thirty minutes at dawn of Monday in the honored Mecca time, a global moment and not two of the humans dispute over it; which means at two o’clock and thirty-one by the global time (UTC)”. Then Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni replies to the entire questioners and I say: I am a witness over this that the crescent of the new month it should not be for it to be born before the central pairing (alignment); because the pairing of the sun with the moon its face is completely dark from glow; it should not be for the sun to overtake the moon, since Allah created the heavens and earth. Confirming with the word of Allah the Most High: {And the moon, We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old Orjoon.(39) Neither it is for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night precede the daylight. And all float on in an orbit.(40)}Truthful Allah the Great [Y.S.] 36:39-40 { وَالْقَمَرَ قَدَّرْنَاهُ مَنَازِلَ حَتَّىٰ عَادَ كَالْعُرْجُونِ الْقَدِيمِ ﴿٣٩﴾ لَا الشَّمْسُ يَنبَغِي لَهَا أَن تُدْرِكَ الْقَمَرَ وَلَا اللَّيْلُ سَابِقُ النَّهَارِ ۚ وَكُلٌّ فِي فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ ﴿٤٠﴾ } [ سورة يس ]. But this universal miracle extraordinary for the astronomical physics Allah made it as a global sign for ratifying Allah’s khalifa over the worlds; the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni, to him alone none knows about it except Allah’s khalifa and His servant the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni the sure knowledge, and the full-moon for the middle of month of Ramadan will rise after sunset of Sunday which is the night of Monday. That’s because the sun will overtake the moon so the crescent would be born on sunday yet it will set before sunset of Sunday which is the night Monday by the honored Mecca time while it’s just a newly crescent at first of month (Ramadan), yet it is not a crescent of the end of the month (Shaaban). Surely I am not of the ignorant ones and I know that none among the worlds can ever witness the crescent for the first (day) on month of Ramadan after sunset on Sunday which the night of Monday the fore-beginning of Ramadan because crescent of Ramadan will set just before sunset of Sunday which is the night Monday while it is in the state of overtaking, so the sun would meet with it while it’s just a newly crescent at the appointed time to perform (Fajr) dawn prayer at the time of beginning shadow by Honored Mecca time, as for the full-moon rise for the month of Ramadan for this year of yours 1442 so it is after sunset of Sunday which it the night of Monday when the moon would rise as full-moon to the viewers in the entire easts of the worlds after sunset of Sunday which is the night of Monday; night of the middle for month of Ramamdanfor this year of yours 1442 AH it is better than a thousand solar month, indeed the length of the solar month is a thousand month and it’s equivalent to eighty three years and for months of what you count. As for the eighty three years it would end by the end of the month of Ramadan, as for the four months, surely these are the sacred months that will end by the end of Muharram the fourth month of the sacred months and it is itself the twelfth month of the Lunar year. So are you believers before the coming of the appointed time of the conquest by the planet of chastisement Saqar or a command from Allah (comes to pass) directly then you will become regretful? _______ Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni 18 - Rajab - 1442 AH 02 - 03 - 2021 AD Announcing the appointed time for night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months, to him among you who will go forward or will remain behind

From PA. Just got a response today about RPM Act. Normally my response letters from Mr. Thompson aren't as promising sounding lol …. "Dear Mr. Schill: Thank you for contacting me to express your support for H.R. 5434, the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act. I appreciate learning your opinions on this issue and value the opportunity to respond. Although Title II of the Clean Air Act authorizes the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate motor vehicles, EPA regulations have not applied to race cars. Congress acknowledged this exception in 1990 when it permitted the EPA to regulate “non-road vehicles” and clearly excluded any “vehicle used solely for competition” from the non-road definition. However, in 2016 the EPA published a new rule which overturned decades of precedent and subjected amateur non-road racing vehicles to regulation under the Clean Air Act standards for the first time. This change carried the potential of fines of up to $37,000 for individuals who modify their motor vehicle’s emissions systems. Due to significant opposition to this overreaching rule and its clear impacts on sport racing, EPA withdrew this flawed proposal in 2016. In response, H.R.5434 was introduced to permanently exempt racecars in statute from regulation under the Clean Air Act, thereby precluding potential new rules targeting these vehicles. This legislation was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on December 16, 2019, where it awaits further action. While I am not a member of this Committee, please be assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind should this legislation come to the House floor for a vote. Thank you again for contacting me. For more information on my policies and happenings around the 15th District and in Congress, please visit my website at thompson.house.gov. There you can sign up to receive periodic updates via my newsletter, The Thompson Times. Sincerely, Glenn Thompson Member of Congress"

Seriously help prevent the rpm act!!! Some of us may remember that the car world didn't used to have the legitimacy it does today. A lot of people did a lot of work to make sure that folks who were street racing had a legal outlet. Now we have drift events, auto cross and track days to fit everyone's budget and interest. If the rpm act makes those motorsports illegal it will go right back were it came from: the streets. No one is going to let their build get crushed or just sit there, they'll end up wrapping it around a tree instead.

This so called climate change is earth natural cycle and nothing else. Just study every single Ice age, who polluted the earth 15 000 years ago when the last ice age melted away? That covered 50% of earth's surface and was 20 miles deep in many places, when the temperatures increased 65°F and the water levels increased 120m or any of the other ice ages before that? New ice ages will come and melt away, it will get warmer and colder and warmer and colder as it always has and has absolutely nothing to do with humans!
