Tensor skateboard trucks?

I want to know how good/bad you think tensor skateboard trucks are. Here are a few key points I want to know: How heavy are they, I cant find a specific weight any where? (in pounds or grams) Do they snap in two? Are they work 40 dollars? my current truck weights 13/16ths of a pound so like a little more 3/4ths of a pound I'm only like 112 lbs so I doubt I could ever snap any trucks but still.

Need feedback, or someone who is good with vehicles?

Ok so we were driving our 2003 Ford F-250 to school and we get down the road, the truck starts reving up and then we get a little further and the truck completely shuts off and the power steering quits working, but yet we're still moving. We were late to school and the truck did this three more times after we got it started.

what do you think

Every one is going "green" these days and I myself am planning on going head on the opposite direction this is what I have, let me know what you think. I am building a GMC 3/4 ton 4wd. my first priority was what motor to use. so I asked around and a family friend said he had a 2 ton grain truck that has been sitting for years and was looking to get rid of it, he said it had a big block in it. so I took it because it was a big block. it is a 366 cubic inch big block tall deck (NOT A BORED OUT 350) I figured if its good enough for a two ton truck its good enough for my 3/4 ton. I also pulled out the transmission and it is the sm 465great transmission, and my dad gave me the transfer case its the np 205 the king of transfer cases. now I need better axels all i have are the factory 12 and 14 bolt. I am sure they will do but I am looking at getting the Rockwell 2 and 1/2 ton planetary gear set. you know the axels in the duce and a halves .I have a predicted fuel mileage of three to five miles to the gallon. but I could challenge anyone to try to out pull me because I have the gearing and the power

windmill on face of truck/bus ? Answered

The windmill on the car doesnt work as your adding more force in the opposite direction to the work done by the engine. What about using the frictional energy on the face of bigger vehicles like trucks and buses that exist already to run a small windmill. Probably charge a battery or use it effectively in some other way. I cannot see a direct negative to this except finding the way i can place a turbine without increasing the opposing force and using as much of the existing one

Homemade skate / mountainboard trucks?

Does anyone have any ideas how I could make something that resembles a skateboard or mountainboard truck at home? I want to build my own motorised mountainboard from various parts on the very cheap, of which none will actually be from a board. The trucks seem like the one thing I might have to buy since I can't think of a way to add turning and carving capability to a homemade board. Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Wanting to put red LEDs in the hood scoop of a truck so it looks as if the engine is "alive." Answered

I have a friend who wants to put red LEDs in the hood scoop of his truck. The truck is a Toyota Tacoma with a stock hood scoop. We want to have the system run so that the more RPM the engine experiences, the brighter the lights shine. There would be a baseline brightness (idling RPM) and a maximum brightness (4000-5000 RPM) Revving the engine would make the lights go from dim to bright and them back to dim when you let off the accelerator. What materials do we need? We don't want to make a flashlight type light with the LEDs but more of a glow. Are there certain LEDs that would be better suited for this sort of application than others? What kind of switch/wiring could we use? Many thanks -Livingstrong

Where might I find corner protectors for a cargo truck (like U-Haul has), preferably in Utah?

I have this old cargo truck (I hope that's the right name, they're like the trucks/vans that U-Haul uses where it looks like someone took a big metal box and slapped a cab to the front) that I just bought and I'd like to fix up. I've seen other trucks like it with corner bracket things on them that protect the corners, and I'm hoping to find some after-market ones for mine. Plus I live in Utah, so I'd prefer a resource nearby (sorry, a Mom & Pop store in Japan won't do me any good). An online resource is okay too (preferably in the U.S.).

GM Universal remote extra button?

I have a GMC pickup with a 3 button remote.  I discovered that GM uses the same PCB for all its remotes, so I have a 3 button case surrounding a 4 button PCB.  I want to use the extra button to control an add-on to the truck.  Does anyone know of a way to acquire the RF receiver, what the part number is, etc, and how it would need to be wired in to allow control of external lights on the truck?  I know it would have to be wired into a relay to allow the kind of amperage I am thinking of...but what else am I missing?
