I can see why the Langka thread might pop up now and then, but this one?!

Yup, replaced that and the temp switch (just in case). Works like a champ.

Radiator fan relay

I ordered a new electric fan for my friend's '99 323i, since the old one literally burned out. It occurred to me, however, that a broken relay may be the original problem -- the fan wouldn't stop...

Nope, I sold it. :cry: I've just been too lazy and too clingy to let go of my sig photo.

Cooling fan won't shut off

I have a feeling this is one of those "do a #$!@#!@ search" topics, but I did just that and came up with nothing.

A friend's '99 323i developed an odd issue today where the cooling fans won't shut...

I believe that F1 should represent the best of the best -- the most brilliant minds in motorsport pumping out the best cars to pair with the best drivers in the world. That certainly costs money,...

100 HP/L of cylinder displacement, not overall size. The LS1 fits in an E46 with room to spare, weighs roughly the same, and pumps out more HP and more torque before the usual bolt-ons. On top of...

True enough. But some people would question what the point is of that "accomplishment," since the end result in both cases is an engine that doesn't outperform other engines of similar size and...

I'm not a fan of the newer rules. Yes, the racing this season is more exciting, but I feel like we've lost the spirit of innovation and anything-goes that was once part of F1. I'm talking years and...

I think that, in general, the current rulebook really prevents F1 from being a showcase of the best that motorsport has to offer the world. The tire rule, though, isn't so bad. It boils down to...

I hadn't thought of that possibility. If all of the teams stayed about the same relative to each other, then a big difference in tire compounds could explain what's going on.

Agreed on the slicks. I don't think that rule is so important any more. The one-race requirement puts enough constraints on tires and racing strategy that the grooves shouldn't matter. On a...

Well, Barrichello's tires really looked like ass. Since he wsas so far out of the running, it's not an unreasonable decision to take his car into the garage.

Nah. I don't think Fisi could have helped that one. Looks like he hit the brakes just a touch too hard and locked it up. That really sucked, but I would call it a racing incident.

But man, what...

I'll say this much: 2005 is turning out to be a real challenge for Ferrari. I expected them to be a lot closer to the top, even this early in the season.

Damn, Kimi just can't get a break. :( ...

Malaysian Grand Prix 2005 (spoilers)

So, an interesting way to start a race. I like having a wide track like Malaysia for cars like these. The first lap could've come from Daytona, in all the right ways.

Pity that both of Honda's...
