    on the drivers side seat belt I put the thumb screw here to lock against the ratchet wheel rather than pushing the inertia ratchet finger and this works really well in locking & holding the belts position. access is abit tight with it being very close to the seat mechanism but reachable. I...

    when going to trackdays, I would engage the seat belts inertia locking ratchet, using a food bag clip to hold the belt locked and then put my seat belt on tightly. it's often a fiddly task so I wondered if I could mod the unit to lock itself with a button or dial inside the white cover is the...

    yea it's just a basic budget clarke mig. just machining it after welding simply guarantees precision

    welding it after being machined thinner is more likely to blow-through and heat will warp the precision machined bore Sent from my CLT-L29 using Micra Sports Club mobile app

I could've contacted & sent...

The needle bearings (purple) allow the (yellow) joint to rotate freely and maintains a precise tight alignment against the (green) inner 15mm bushing but also allows the (yellow) joint to slide along the axis...

    Reading a few 'choosing speaker with amp' guides, they generally say: pick a speaker with rated/nominal input RMS power close to the amps continuous RMS output, peak maximum power ain't as important, high sensitivity speakers for low RMS amp, low sensitivity for high RMS amps. Looking at the...
