Does a bear split in the woods near Zheleznogorsk?


Goddamn. The entire head of the piston is gone. I've always seen SOME of it remain.

I've never seen a piston completely vaporize like that.

That poor 283, good little motors.

I feel bad about killing the 283 but I got another 283 from craigslist that already has a hot cam in it

Isn't the earliest hot cam the LT4 hotcam? Those require a roller block, which no 283 is. Is there an earlier one that I haven't heard of? Google is only showing me the LSx and LT4 hotcams.

e: or do you just mean a generic cam which is hot instead of the GMPP Hotcam? Maybe I misunderstood.

I didn't mean hot cam by name, just that its better than stock. Its the 327/350hp cam.

It looks more like it just snapped, you wouldn't be able to shift into any higher gear and still have it rubbing against the chain. Hell, the only way I can see you sawing through would be if you had such a poorly adjusted derailleur that it was rubbing in the smallest gear, and that wouldn't break it that high up.
I've done this before with an "inherited" bike...it must have been about 20 years old. The derailleur arm just wore through, because noone (myself included) bothered to adjust it so it didn't rub when the chain was actually in the proper gear. Instead of just rubbing when shifting, it always rubbed. Oops.

Throw some double humps on there to match! 283s had pretty small valves and ports, iirc. Then again, this is a truck, that is probably unnecessary.

Little bit from the latest MRT Performance newsletter; why not to drop the clutch at 8.5k. Almost pedestrian for this thread.









Not sure what part of the car this last picture is of.. looks like there's some steering bits here, so my guess is that it cleaved through an exhaust pipe and took out part of the body?

I've still got a scar from a torque converter coming apart in a buddies car. The worst was the part about it being an '80 Malibu Classic. It doesn't matter how nice it was or how much money he spent on the engine, it was a Malibu Classic. He jumped on it leaving a light and when it hit second it blew the torque converter apart, took out the tunnel and hot fluid and metal showered the interior. It took a few weeks to fix that car and i was always a bit concerned when i rode in it after that.

Which transverse engines have their transaxle on the passenger side? I'm gonna start favoring those in my FWD rating process.

Yeah, they were actually cool for the year but most people thought of their grandparents when they heard Malibu Classic. It was a badass mini tubbed straight line car but it would have been much cooler if my hosed up leg came from my own '66 Malibu or a random F-body.



Fifteen plus years later and i still have the scar.

If you need me I'll be in Holodeck Four.

Late one night I was passing alongside a truck that was accelerating down a highway on ramp when a large red hot rotating mass shot from under it at me. I assume it was a part of the clutch or flywheel. It missed me, but not by much.
