  1. I just downed a green 550ml can for lunch.
  2. Looks a bit farken dry!!! He coulda added some juice or something to it!
  3. My usual e85 spot is close by but the pumps aren't working. I just went for a quick drive to see how it launched. There wasn't much tyre slip but it still went alright.
  4. Din do nuffin today really. Had to drive 100km to get e85 today and ended up with 25 litres, with the rest of the tank being 98. Yesterday I changed some torque settings so I can stall the car up. Turned it up to 15psi too which it didn't like on straight 98 but is fine with the e85 in it. It makes 6psi off the brake in first gear at 2600ish on 98. It might make more with the e85 but I haven't checked. I tried a hectic launch but the road was wet so it just spun the tyres. Haha the missus and kids reckon it's quick though! I'll do the promised 18psi when after I take a look at the boost control or actuator preload as it's got about a 3psi boost spike coming onto boost and on gear changes. I'll sort it out soon enough.
  5. Yeah for sure, I'll sus them out.
  6. That's handy info. I'm in South Australia, North of Adelaide. There is a Supagas distributor not too far from me.
  7. Yeah I have used BOC for my initial gas cylinders. Balloon grade is $481.44 for a size g. Laser grade is $1308.36 and there are a couple of grades in between. Mate if you can sort me out a better price, sign me up! I'll have a look around anyway, now that you mention it.
  8. Believe me I was welding my dick to the bench a few days ago. I burnt my arm on the filler rod, stabbed the red hot tungsten through my work pants into my leg and heat the fark out of my fingers through the gloves regularly. I need a welding bench cos the current (no pun intended) one is wooden. All will happen in time, there's no shortcuts to practice.
  9. Unlikely when I've had all of 4 hours practice on aluminium Here's a few runs I just did on an old ali pipe
  10. Cheers @bloodycrashboy. Rab I'll post a pic later. No need to see the sh*t stuff while I worked out the machine settings and welding techniques.
  11. More like everyone's huffing it to make squeaky voices. Balloon grade is fairly cheap, I wonder what my toddler would sound like?!
  12. $1300 for a 8m3 bottle of helium if anyone's counting. Only $220 for 10m3 of argon.
  13. I have a gasless steel mig and it's ok for its intended use. This "new" welder is decent and I want to become proficient at using it. I'm only moaning about the gas cos I had no idea how much it would use and I'm still learning. I'll get a size g2 bottle next time, I currently have a d2. It's given me new perspective about the cost of tig welded products.
