    I don't think it is fair to assume VTT.

    Yep but what other option do you have? You have to cut it in order to 'solve' this.

    The Chinese government is subsidizing theirs crowding everyone else out of the market. I think a better approach would be the 30% tax credit ONLY on USA made solar panels.

    Sticky replied to a thread Cracking the DCT BINs in N54
    The DCT was never a problem for me. I can adjust my launch from 4500-6500 rpm or whatever the window is. Why do you think the M3 does so well comparatively on the strip? Better DCT software is definitely an important part.

    Soul Performance Products continues to expand their exhaust offering which is a great thing for enthusiasts looking to uncork their exhaust and add some power. A prime candidate for exhaust mods is the Porsche 991.1 Turbo. Here are the parts Soul offers for the 991.1 Turbo/S: - Competition X-Pipe Exhaust System - Sport X-Pipe Exhaust System - Sport Catalytic Converters - Cat Bypass Pipes - Bolt On Exhaust Tips Now, a big part is obviously the sound quality. Let's take a listen: Much better than stock which is just garbled/muffled too much. For those who want even more than the Sport or Competition system you can go to full cat bypass pipes: What about the power gains? Let's take a look at some Mustang results although keep in mind R/T Tuning corrects their Mustang heavily. Focus on the difference between the runs and not the peak figures: With the Soul X-Pipe system the baseline is 542 awhp and 629 awtq. The tune obviously make a huge difference in torque down low offering over 100 lb-ft at the wheels over the baseline. A Cobb Protune further extracts another 26 awhp over the out of the box tune. Drop weight, increase sound quality, and add power. Exactly what we like to see. WEIGHTS: Competition: approximately 19 lbs / 8.6 kg less than factory exhaust components (26 lbs vs 45 lbs). Sport (catted): approximately 14.4 lbs / 6.5 kg less than factory exhaust components (30.6 lbs vs 45 lbs) CHECK ENGINE LIGHT?: Expect no CEL with our catted Sport X-Pipe Exhaust System. Catless, most likely, but chances can be reduced with our catted O2 spacers. LIFETIME WARRANTY: Enjoy your Soul exhaust components with confidence on both the street and track as they are covered by our Lifetime Warranty! Our team will quickly work with you to resolve any issues or answer any questions that you may have.

    I hope you are right. There is some logic to that. To put things in perspective solar modules account for around 40% of a total system cost when including things like margin, labor, etc. 30% tariff is not the end of the world...just makes less projects pencil out or pencil out as healthy as before. Wish he would put a tariff on Chinese and foreign solar inverters. Or all foreign solar components. Not just one piece of the pie... It just pisses me off a German company and a Chinese company, who are both failing and going out of business, can dictate US foreign policy/tariffs.

    I think its tactical... he did it right before the meeting in Davos so now he has something to negotiate with the Chinese.. gets their attention that he is serious about the trade deficit with them, then he offers to drop the tariff if they do X,Y and Z

    Let me translate this for you guys: Saudi Arabia wants to pay to construct a mosque in Poland. A Polish MP responds that's fine as long as we get to pay to construct a Cathedral in Saudi Arabia.

    Some nice testing data from BMS (Burger Motorsports or Burger Tuning) with a 6-speed manual BMW F82 M4. The car has basic bolt on modifications in the form of a JB4, BEF, and BMS intake on E85 ethanol. Further details from BMS: Hey guys, Had a chance to spend a little time on the dyno today with our development M4. Driven by Payam@BMS it's a 2015 manual trans with around 80k miles. Bone stock except for a JB4, BMS intake, and our development back end flash map loaded via MHD. JB4 is using latest v1.8.1 firmware with the higher speed data logging. Testing today was done on straight E85 so we could test the limits of the factory fuel system. Some quick notes: 1) The high pressure pump keeps up with straight E85 relatively well at this power level, but pressure starts to nose off around 6000rpm at max boost. 2) Low pressure held fine even under higher RPM higher fuel demand. 3) The factory turbos still run out of steam at higher RPM. Exhaust modifications might extend the usable range slightly. 4) We ran the tuning with relatively conservative ignition advance peaking around 9 degrees. A couple timing drops here and there but mostly due to the back to back runs and working the turbo beyond its efficiency range at higher rpm. I meant to try running higher advance at higher RPM where the turbos drop off, but didn't have time to test it today. Next time. 5) Just for kicks I did a run on existing additive map1 and map2 for comparison. With the BEF loaded we'll be reprogramming all the JB4 map options so you retain a similarly wide range of power delivery options at your fingertips. Lots more to come...

    Some 'rules' from Jordan Peterson: Tell the truth. Do not do things that you hate. Act so that you can tell the truth about how you act. Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient. If you have to choose, be the one who does things, instead of the one who is seen to do things. Pay attention. Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you need to know. Listen to them hard enough so that they will share it with you. Plan and work diligently to maintain the romance in your relationships. Be careful who you share good news with. Be careful who you share bad news with. Make at least one thing better every single place you go. Imagine who you could be, and then aim single-mindedly at that. Do not allow yourself to become arrogant or resentful. Try to make one room in your house as beautiful as possible. Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today. Work as hard as you possibly can on at least one thing and see what happens. If old memories still make you cry, write them down carefully and completely. Maintain your connections with people. Do not carelessly denigrate social institutions or artistic achievement. Treat yourself as if you were someone that you are responsible for helping. Ask someone to do you a small favour, so that he or she can ask you to do one in the future. Make friends with people who want the best for you. Do not try to rescue someone who does not want to be rescued, and be very careful about rescuing someone who does. Nothing well done is insignificant. Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world. Dress like the person you want to be. Be precise in your speech. Stand up straight with your shoulders back. Don’t avoid something frightening if it stands in your way — and don’t do unnecessarily dangerous things. Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them. Do not transform your wife into a maid. Do not hide unwanted things in the fog. Notice that opportunity lurks where responsibility has been abdicated. Read something written by someone great. Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street. Do not bother children when they are skateboarding. Don’t let bullies get away with it. Write a letter to the government if you see something that needs fixing — and propose a solution. Remember that what you do not yet know is more important than what you already know. Be grateful in spite of your suffering.
