    S 12 ready conditions

    Krebs safety. On safe, bolt open, no shell deformation, no stupid "racking it twice". Take it off safe and it will put the s12 into battery automatically. Same concept as the factory BHO, except you get safe position.
  2. I just picked up an '02 Jetta 5spd TDI for a work commuter, since I drive 140 miles round trip. She's got 235,320 miles on it and purrs like a kitten. First time ever driving one yesterday and I couldn't believe how peppy it is for 90 flywheel horsepower and 155 flywheel torque. Going to be doing some MPG mods to it. I'm hoping to see 55mpg as an average.
  3. Gunfun, you must be the greatest driver in the world. 65mpg out of a TDI VW, and 55mpg out of a Festy. I owned an '89 Festy 4spd manual, that i swapped a 5spd into. It was the carb 4cyl, pre stupid door attached sliding seatbelts. The best i ever mustered out of that Festy was literally tailgating a semi for 110 miles, of a 170 mile trip. I used up 3.5 gallons. When i say tailgate, i mean i was literally 8-10ft off the trailer of that semi, doing 55mph on Interstate 39. Fun car tho, i only paid $550 for it and it came with the 5spd i swapped into it. It's been 10yrs since i had that Festy, and if memory serves me right, i averaged ~42mpg. I actually shopped those again, before i picked up this TDI. I agree. The econo box has an aire of freedom about it. In more ways than just being able to travel farther, for less. It's about not being 'AS' enslaved to the oil industry to. It's a double "FUCK YOU". so to speak.
  4. If i was by myself, that's exactly what i would do. Straight interstate driving at a steady 72-73mph, i bet this thing would do well over 800 miles to a tank, easy.
  5. First tank went 717 miles. When i filled up, it took 15.6x gallons. Averaged out to 45.1mpg, thats triple what i was getting before. I didn't change my driving habits at all, still drive 78-80mph for 85-90% of my commute. Plus my rear brakes were garbage metal on metal and dragging, and all 4 tires had excessively different pressures, for about half of that tank. When the fun of driving it slows down some, i will try harder to get a better average by driving slower, coasting more, shifting at a lower rpm etc. etc. Cant complain about that
  6. Yet here you are wasting your time.
  7. I hope they continue to make new episodes. That Payday loan episode was infuriating, to say the least.
  8. Still on the first tank of fuel. This thing is just satisfying to drive. Check out the trip vs fuel gauge.... Normally driving my truck or jeep, I would have filled up twice going into the third fill-up at that kind of mileage.

    US Palm comng back!

    I can't believe what some people have paid for them, since they closed up shop.

    12 round magazines

    Ha, no doubt, atleast a crude hatchet, in desperate measures.
  12. First fill up today. Going to keep track of each fill up and mileage in a log book. I'm geeking out over it. Did the "fuel tank top off mod" where you vent the tank manually, to squeeze 2 extra gallons of fuel in there. Hard to say for sure, but they fucked up pretty bad. Not too mention it gives the EPA and tree huggers that hate diesels, reason enough to keep them off US soil. That Dirty Money episode about it is great. The part where they (a German company) were wanting to use a gas chamber with live people in it, was almost unbelievable. LMFAO
  13. I had a '92 jetta with the 2.0 + 5spd years ago and this thing is so much more fun to drive. And that '92 was a fun car to drive in itself. This one just offers so much more. Getting it tuned in two weeks for +25hp and +40tq. Supposed to get 3-4mpg better too. Word is VW TDI's are no longer available and will never be available for sale again the US as new vehicles, because of 'Diesel Gate'. Google it and find the show on Netflix under Dirty Money if you haven't seen it.
  14. I'll second that. Dude obviously has the internet. Google that shit and do some research, and quit whining.
  15. Not at all but that's a spam account, all day.

    Why I do it? Doing custom work on the Saiga 12

    Pat? Pat on the back?
  18. i don't have any particular info on that specific model. All i can say is if you can find one and it's priced right, always go for the dealer models, if possible. The ones sold at Lowes, Home Depot and Farm and Fleet (the "big box store" brands) etc. etc. etc., just are built to last like the dealer models are. A little research will tell ya where any make/model was sold from.

    MOLOT magwell / recent developments?

    Definitely not drastic. I sanded more on the sides and front than the rear. It was literally sanding to fit, no power tools. I changed the mag latch at the same time to an ambidextrous extended version (brand escapes me), I used the same one on my V12 too. I don't recall doing any fitting to it. But i also do not recall if there was a difference between it and the factory S12 latch (the factory latch MAY have been shorter). I'm sure i have mentioned that info in my postings on here, somewhere. You have to open up the receiver towards the front , otherwise the V12 mags will not seat. I took the magwell off of my V12 and measured the receiver opening, then mirrored that on my S12. Have no issues with feeding. I only have Vepr factory mags (5's, 8's, 10's) and they all fit and function in my V12 and my S12.
  20. Get you a small tractor and a vintage square bailer like this.... https://stlouis.craigslist.org/grd/d/john-deere-square-baler-14t/6650255859.html Till up your land and seed with alfalfa or whatever tends to do best in your area. Depending on moisture a square bail weighs about 55lbs. Gotta be able to move them. You can lease out your land too. That's not uncommon.
  21. I had an old neighbor that pulled two push mowers behind his rider. He just made up a spreader bar to keep them where he wanted. Looked hillbilly as fuck but it worked. You can find zero turns for a song these days. They've become so popular, they're everywhere for sale used.
  22. If all you're doing is mowing, then a zero turn is what you want. I'm on just over 5 acres and about 4 is grass. I can cut it in 2hrs with my 72" JD 797. High lift mulching blades help it look good too. Little too no clippings left on top.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    I would suggest looking into a Primary Arms RDS with the TRS25 mount pattern. Everything i have read about the new TRS25's says they are junk and not built to the "quality" that the older versions were. They just don't hold up like the old ones did. Bushnell somehow allowed the quality to take a shit, on what was once considered a quality optic for it's price range.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Yeah, definitely wiping the sweat from my brow about the whole side rail shimming thing.....WHEW! Bad thing is, unless you want to swap uppers again, you're stuck with some slim choices, due to the mounting pattern of that RDS.
