    The Easter Bunny brought me a Sega years ago

    I was a lucky kid and super stoked, they have me on video throwing a rod

    We always did holidays at my aunt's house and leaving my new toys was a bummer, but one year I got Diablo for the PS1 for Christmas and dad packed up the Playstation and I was playing in my aunt's den and it's a super cozy memory, with the music and STAY AWHILE AND LISTEN and not knowing at all how Diablo games worked so those Rags of the Eagle were super special

    I think you'll need to explain "throwing a rod" because I'd guess either shitting or wanking.

    I found some ROUGH edits of pawn stars (like "five times people lost their shit") and man even though the owners are never in the actual vegas shop and even though they fly people in to show off cool stuff there's still just mountains of tape from people hard up for cash in Vegas trying to stay in the game.

    It's just such a hard cut from "Uh Oh Chumlee is back there with the ming vases again I hope he doesn't break one!" to "I want 100K for this or you can go fuck yourself Rick! You too old man!"

    It used to be a common failure of old engines that the connecting rod between an engine and crankshaft would break or "throw", which basically explodes and locks up your car engine

    It's more of a "we let the magic smoke out" than a "blue screen of death" kind of thing

    I got most of what I wanted to do done this weekend and the Monster Hunter Kebobs came out pretty good (the shrimp sucked but that was my fault)

    Overall I'm p happy with the events.

    Pistonheads has written one of its used car buying guides for Bugatti Veyron 16.4, a vehicle of which 252 exist in total

    The recommended tyre replacement internal of 18 months or 2500 miles, and the requirement to replace the wheels themselves, means that the canny owner can save upwards of £35,000 by purchasing a part-worn set on eBay, which is a thing that has apparently genuinely happened

    When looking at your prospective used Veyron make sure that all the extras it came with - high-speed key, tablet computer and a full set of documents and manuals - are included. There was a recall on faulty side airbags in relation to the assembly of a heat shield. The seats had to be removed to effect a repair. Finally, check the carpets for damp. Not because Veyrons are known for leaking, but because one owner drove his Veyron into a US saltwater lake

    So the used car guide actually covers the repair history of all known 252 vehicles?

    It's super easy to do, like WAY easier than regular farming (on a small personal scale) it just has a completely different cost/requirements breakdown so I've put it off for now.

    There's a place in GA though that will sell pre-inoculated logs that will produce for 3-5 years for about $100 though and just ship them to you. You stick them under a deck or something were they only get about 10% sunlight and boom! Mushrooms.

    No, they're just taking the piss by doing the usual summary of common faults and issues that these guides usually have

    They also point out, for example, that the buyer may wish to check if the example they are inspecting has the original aluminium grille, or the titanium grille fitted to later models, the better to cope with 250mph bird strikes

    Limited Slip Differentials are there for a reason everyone. They make your fast car go fast in a straight line.

    Yeah it never sounded super tricky and the ex wanted to get some of those logs.

    Traction control is a lot more than limited slip anymore.

    But it seems like there is a rich kid rite of passage where you fuck up your dads Mustang / Camaro putting it in a ditch or pole or just a hard curb.

    Cars today just have too much power to turn off driver aids unless you are at the track / know what you are doing.

    It's not a totally unserious article, and they do write legitimate buying guides for exotica:
    https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-buying-guides/bugatti-veyron-164-ph-used-buying-guide/43973

    The guy that writes them has a particular style, but there's definitely useful information in there, and if you were in the market for a Veyron or other hypercar in the UK, the pistonheads classifieds are one of the places you'd look. There are some extremely serious dealers that lurk in their forums.

    Also, if you were buying a veyron, ending up with the "lake" one would probably be a genuine concern, given the very small number of these vehicles and the motivation for that owner to pass it off onto some sucker rather than try to fix it

    Oh absolutely. And the tech with the electric stuff is beyond me.

    I really enjoy the Jeep Compass we bought for wife two years ago. It's got a great AWD system you can modify with a simple turn of the knob and it does a pseudo "locker" by using the brakes to make sure you don't lose traction through mud or snow.
