Team Legacy has moved! [25 Apr 2004|11:10pm]

Due to recent requests for LJ community membership, it has come to my attention that an official announcement was never made regarding our abandonment of this shared journal.

Please find us at our new home: www.team-legacy.org.

Management ;)

Wack! [15 Jul 2003|11:45pm]

[ mood | busy ]

This LJ needs some serious action like the way hoes need pimps. =D

Worked on Holly today. Did the rear camber washer adjustment thing. Not all that hard to do. The upper control arm bolts were a bizatch to break the seal and loosen up. I hope I don't have to adjust them again because I coated the new bolts I put in place with TONS of thread locker, haha! That's what they recommend, other wise they could loosen up and then my suspension could come unsprung on me. :( Not good. I couldn't really tell if it fixed my camber much at all or not though, we'll see though by tire wear. Ok, getting an alignment in the morning at 10am, that is all.

I have a project for Holly tomorrow I'll work on, it's a little electrical project, and NO, doesn't involve LEDs either. ;p I'm gonna bring my drill along for it though because that I may need... See you all tomorrow, I'm gonna try to be at Bri's by 10:15 the latest. I gotta jam around 4pm though if not slightly earlier since I work from 6-10. :(

Holy mother of JDM, Batman! =0 [04 Jan 2003|11:35pm]

[ mood | shocked ]

I picked up the headlights for Jaron. As I sat here examining them over (I'm the official QC tester now ;) ) I discovered that the headlights he saw that I picked up for him, have CITY LIGHTS in them! That means these babies are JDM to the fullest, and sill accompany his JDM Visions PEFECTLY! =D Only thing is, one of them is missing the socket, so he'll need to pick them up, along with the wiring/harnesses for the city lights, which I'd gladly wire up for him if needed so. :) You got a good deal her Jar! :w00t!: haha

As soon as I get home from work here at city hall, I'm gonna go to work on a couple small projects I thought of today, to have ready for tonight hopefully... We'll see how it goes. :) To be continued tonight at our meet up. I'll just say it involves some what should be JDM'ness, and a LED, but not in any sense you all can think of for the LED. hehehe ;D

On another note, I need to talk to you tonight Brian about maybe hitting up Inline Four sometime tomorrow for them rotors.

Floor it!

Silver Deuce sighting! [02 Jan 2003|02:03am]

I saw this MR2 on the freeway tonight, while driving to Tea Zone with Patty. Damn thing is clean as hell... and the guy's a member of SoCalMR2.com too! He goes by the screenname "silver deuce", and from his posts he seems like a good guy. I'd like to pick his brain about Two's sometime...

Regarding "crankwalk" [30 Dec 2002|12:18am]

This problem involves the crank bearings on 4G63 (the turbo motor) engines in 1995-1999 cars. The problem seems to be that excess play in the crank bearings can cause the crank to travel ("walk") back and forth along its axis of rotation in the block, eventually wearing out the bearing housings and potentially damaging the block itself. (That's bad.)

The biggest indicator that you might have this problem is a clutch pedal that stays stuck to the floor, especially after making left hand turns. (The crank slides over and the flywheel slides away from the clutch, so the clutch won't engage...). If the play in the crank becomes bad enough, it breaks the crank angle sensor off the end of the crank, and the motor shuts down completely.

"Crank walk" is often mis-diagnosed by dealer technicians. We've heard of car owners replacing multiple clutches trying to fix a clutch problem, when the problem was really crank bearing wear.

This seems to be an increasingly common problem on the 95-99 turbo DSM's. We have heard firsthand of dozens of cases, and online reports seem to suggest that the numbers are in the many hundreds.

There are several theories about why this happens, including bad crank machining, oiling problems at the bearings, and excessive bearing cap tolerance. So far, no theory is proven, since the problem takes years to show up, and none of the possible solutions have been in place for that long.

So yeah. That sucks.

Be careful out there doggs... [27 Dec 2002|11:31pm]

[ mood | surprised ]

I just survived about the worst case of understeer I've ever experienced on my car, or ANY car for that matter. I was on my way home from work tonight, and I was heading south on Altadena dr. at about 45mph, and I slowed for the turn onto Villa st. which takes me the back way to my house, no dips to go through this way. So I take the turn at about 35mph, nothing I haven't done before, taken that turn quick and nice, Ok, maybe this time it was a little faster than typical, but I turning in REAL nice initially, then all the sudden my car stopped turning, and understeer took over, tokk me ALMOST totally into the opposing lane (at least this street is pretty empty at night) and I could just hear my tires screeching away. For a split moment I could picture myself kareening into the curb on the opposite side of the street. Then I let off the throttle and my rear whipped back around so quick, it almost sent me into the curb on my right since I didn't expect it to snap back so sudden, not really snap, but it whipped around very quickly. One of 3 things went wrong I think...

1. My suspension just wasn't set stiff enough for such a quick and tight turn
2. My tires are wearing down enough that precious grip isn't as good as it used to be
3. I really just too the turn a little faster than normal

I'm not thinking so much #3 because it didn't seem any faster than anyother time. And to think I was ALMOST going to E-brake that turn too. ;p

I'm scheduled to be off work at midnight, so I dunn if that would be too late for me to meet up with you all, let me know. If I get out early, I'll be sure to call one of you guys up ASAP, I have Jaron's celly, maybe if someone could email me Patty's or Nic's celly numbers? Thanks
