    Great chance to clear the air with this and i will take this one at a time: For James in DUBAI - We started a project for James to build a Twin Turbo SL. The logistics with him being in Dubai(british citizen) and us being in US we had to fabricate and ship a kit. It was intended to be a full 100k dollar build. We purchased with clients money a lamborghini gallardo to build an engine, trans etc and then send to him with us receiving his as a core with the gallardo then being assembled and resold with a minimal loss. At this time James went missing, he ended up frauding real estate investors in Dubai and had to stop the project, but we didn't hear this till almost a year later. So here we are out 20k down payment on a car and monthly payments to build that didn't happen. We developed and built a good amount of parts for him. These are the details that are not told. James needed money to pay debts to get his passport back to leave the country and go back to his homeland. So he was desperate, we offered a small fraction since we were already out a great sum of money on an incompleted project but he refused. This led to no resolution we ended up selling this vehicle for just over 50k dollars as an incomplete project we took a near 40k dollar hit on sell of vehicle and the cost of parts and material we were out on James build so it was a great loss for everyone. regarding HustlerX5 It must be made clear our first interaction with this customer was installing an exhaust he purchased from our customer. Yes we did take him on a test drive in a TT R8, no we never came close to an accident this guy lies beyond belief. He then contacted us 3 months later when one of his axles came loose(we had never done anything other than install an exhaust on the vehicle which he bought used). He asked us why we had no idea as this was something we hadnt seen before his bill came to around 1000 o to replace axle/hardware and repair the hole that axle put into his dry sump tank. Fast forward a few months and his axle comes loose again. At this point we start to think he has some underlying issue with the car., Not being the original owner neither he nor I could really know what this car has been through. We fix the issue and a few months later we come to find out his Differential inside the gearbox went bad. Is it possible that the diff could be the culprit, quite possible. Vehicle was brought to us un announced.I must add we are not a service shop just a twin turbo facility. The car sat for a few months before we could swap the gearbox with a built one and do a turbo system. I must mention this was not a planned and scheduled build hence the long build time. The car did quite well at 172 in the half mile and customer was quite pleased. But at this event the motor mounts went out likely during launching the car. The customer had issues with this as he had blown them at the drag strip as well multiple times. I recommended we then go to running solid GMG racing engine and trans mounts. It sounded like a great idea but they stopped selling and making those parts so we were stuck having to design and fabricate our own. Again this car was brought in unannounced we it was not able to be adressed right away. Yes we upgraded the customer to a catch can to vent the dry sump/pcv system. Anyone familiar with boost is aware of what added crankcase pressure does. So yes the factory NA motor pcv system is not up to par for this now boosted engine. So yes he was charged to upgrade it, no scam here just an uneducated customer that was not willing to listen. The damage done to his oil and fuel lines was from the blown motor mounts. Again if one mount goes bad the motor will lift up on one side and the drive shaft made contact with his fuel crossover line. In his day and age with social media its crucial people hear the truth and 2 sides to every story.

    Antigravity Batteries for me specifically it's an 09 135i, no options bar park sensors, no cameras/accessories on whilst parked, just a GoPro when driving, no idrive, radio will be removed etc. Won't be regularly street driven (sometimes but very much not daily) and will be on tender most of the time. My only concern is how it'll play with the IBS for maximum longevity since I don't want to inadvertently reduce the life? I tried to look up other people's experiences, but it seems like even in the M3 world, lithium batteries are a relative rarity. I gathered that generally coding to 60ah AGM is the best idea, is turning it off entirely a terrible idea? So for me would there be any downside going with the 30 or 40 over the 60? I feel the 24 might be a little small but yeah I really don't know. And the IBS?

    Pretty much every single move has been pre-calculated. Cancel all J1 and F1 work experience Visas and send Chinese scholars back before they get the chance to pillage intellectual property from our tech giants. 4-year graduates from schools such as UCI are gifted educational employment in excess of $80K per year by companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, etc. No first year employee is worth that kind of salary.

    US wealth per capita, just over $400k per person, China just under $50K per person. We could bankrupt the entire Chinese nation by investing 13 cents of every dollar we have towards this undocumented fiscal matter.

    China is going to try to fuck @POTUS in any way they can in 2020. We need to crush their economy starting today. Drive forward with USMCA and incentivize any business who leaves China.

    Fuck China... Their entire economy is based on paying workers slave wages and killing them when they rebell, and copying other countries stuff and selling it back to them cheaper. I love how Trump is handling them.

    US GDP per capita just shy $60K, China just shy $9K. We need to leverage the remainder of the America’s as our strategic partners.

    Let’s go all the way and see which citizens have greater faith in their currency. 10:1 says we can easily outlast them.
