re: Congressional black caucus upset with Loretta lynch and DOJ - TheLSUriot
I listened to Hannity last night for a while. He is absolutely correct in this analysis. While Geraldo sounded like an blubber idiot at times trying to make his counterpoint. The biggest take away for me was how truly moved I was by Mayor Giuliani's passion for doing the right thing to save lives an...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
You got me, it came from a website. This is the first powertech of its kind I have seen up close. I thought it has an aggressive look to it didn't question what I read. I had calculated between 14-16% slip as well. The load on that run was full tank, 2 grown men, fishing gear, cooler loaded down...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
Was thinking about something you said yesterday that didn't make sense to me. [quote]All props of the same pitch will give different rpms due to diameter, blade design and blade stiffness differences[/quote]I understand this.[quote]you should be turning a 19 pitch[/quote]But not this. I am already ...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
Good point about the speedo. The analog gauge is crap. Sometimes it works other times it gets stuck at various speeds. Not very sensitive at all so it gets ignored. Already looking to see what else I could put in that spot. I go by what the Helix 9 GPS is telling me. My mistake, I misread what yo...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
[quote]my buddy's h22 with w150 and no JP did 50-51 [/quote]That makes me feel better. Guy I bought it from said it topped out at 59; he must have misspoke and meant to say 49. You made a good point about a 4 blade lifting the rear and flatting the ride. That should keep the wife happy. Based on ...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
I know I threw a lot out there. Thanks for the input to get me started. Is 52 mph respectable for a 150 on a H22? The set back will remain as-is but that prop was a big question mark. Seemed like something thrown on at the factory/dealership. Would probably avoid the trophy so as to not deal with...

Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
Learn me what I need to know, oh wise OB. I picked up a 2013 H22 over the weekend. F150LA with only 60 hrs and a OFX3R21PCL200 Powertech prop on it. From that code, I gather it’s a 21 pitch 3 blade but can’t find it listed on their website. 6” hydro-jacker with the mounting plates for a Talon set...

re: The Mexican president told Trump " Mexico will not pay for a wall" - TheLSUriot
Novel logic here, but both could be correct. The Mexico Pres could have simply stated "I don't see how Mexico will pay for the wall" followed by Trump saying "How about we talk about that later". That would be what Trump should say in that situation because at this time he is only a presidential nom...

re: Need new brake pads and rotors recommendations/help - TheLSUriot
Nothing wrong with stock rotors but definitely upgrade the pads. I just put a set of Power Stop on all 4 corners. Been very pleased thus far; solid steady breaking power and most importantly, absolutely no squealing or any sound at all. I followed the break-in SOP to the letter. Power Stop K2068 Z...

re: New style Micro portable jump boxes - TheLSUriot
I have been considering getting a unit such as this. After laughing at the term 'Antigravity Battery' for a minute, I had to google it. Turns out its a Nanophosphate Lithium system, and is incapable of creating a mass effect field. Its a cool gadget but that last part is a deal breaker....

Astronaut returns from 1 year in space - TheLSUriot
I haven’t seen this posted yet. Scott Kelly just returned from a 1 year ISS mission in what is referred to as the “Twins Study” because his twin brother (Mark, also a former astronaut) remained on Earth as a 1G control subject acting as a baseline to study Scott’s response to long duration spacefl...

re: Amazing video review of The Patriot - TheLSUriot
That was not amazing. I did love the cut away to a SG-1 scene with Ben Browder. That brit should head his own advice about quality content. The last half of that video was hard to listen to. The Patriot was not meant to be a documentary....

re: Sixgill fishing reels - TheLSUriot
I went in on that deal the last time. I think I posted a brief update in the previous thread. I compare everything to my Revo STX. Simply have not been pleased with them at all, even considering them as $75 reels. Spoken to the owner a couple of times about all the issues I was experiencing and got ...
