Just caught the start...Bowyer very loose...dropping like a stone.

Danica seemed to move up a bit.

Meanwhile, and why I’m getting to watch a bit...after soaking the rr brake line fitting on mrs p6’s 91 Saturn for a month, I finally gave up and cut it off.

Tommorow’s adventure will be figuring out if Pennsylvania allows the use of modern brake lines or if tommorow is bend, flare, swear and start over day, LOL!

First race in Vegas was 98. Hard to believe they’ve been there 15 yrs already.

Well, Marie Osmond is a country singer.

She's also the hottest act on the Strip right now.

What’s a “modern” brake line?
The ones on my new Chevy don’t look a whole lot different from the ones on my 67 Chevy?

EZ bend...copper alloy...compression fittings. Not that I’m crazy about compression fittings for brake lines. IIRC steel lines are good for 16k psi. Copper and compression around half that or less.

However if PA lets the lower psi pass it must be ok. PA is hell on inspections, sometimes for the silliest stuff.

Can’t you just buy an over-length steel line and add bends/loops to use up the extra length?

Yeah..you can. But on a small car like the old Saturn sometimes they end up all over the place.

FWIW on an old car like our Saturn I’ll just zip tie the new lines to the old ones. Years ago in PA that wouldn’t have passed inspection.

FWIW IIRC new Euro cars use a steel braided plastic or flexible line. Here it’s ok if it comes from the factory but if you retro on say a 1971 Nova ..no go.

Shoot...just missed the caution. Mrs p6 was buying something on QVC...

Of course you can, New brake lines come in several sizes and lengths but he’ll need a power brake bleeder and a compatible fluid to do the job properly...

Yeah I put all new stainless (including fuel) on my 67. Cost a king’s ransom but they are beautifully made.

I don’t like power bleeders, I use a hand vaccuum pump, it works quite well and low cost.

Of course I’m not in a production shop, LOL.

It has been San Juan, for 9 days. I was supposed to go home yesterday, but we changed flights because of the threatened storm. I was really hoping to be home, have a cold/cough. Dreading what the flight is going to do to it tomorrow.

I’m always impressed how flawlessly the “putting on” guy is with the tire placement on the hub.

Excellent racing at the front, the studs were hooked up and the duds were way off.

Hard to believe they’re at Bristol already.

Kenseth is a great pickup for Gibbs.

His other two guys are talented but emotional, Kenseth is Mr. Cool, and still a top flite chauffeur.

Haven't seen you on the NASCAR threads since Daytona when you preached to NASCAR fans.

ALL the ppl I know who go to this race or watch it only do so to see ppl hurt. I personally have a friend who is in a wheelchair with limited motor skills from racing up in canada. He can’t walk or hold a pen. I wish they would do away with this stupid idiotic sport....it’s barbaric!

Nice, clean race today at Las Vegas. Kenseth won.

Lots of us watched all the way. Enjoyed the race.

Saying NASCAR fans watch to see ppl hurt is like saying men watch women's tennis to see panties.

Jackwagon.

Bristol is next week BTW!

What’s a “modern” brake line?

It could be poly-armor, it could be nickel/copper, it could be something more exotic.

The guys at thw garage showed me a really bendable nickle-copper line. Tomorrow I’m going to the parts stores to ask about it. Not sure if my flare kits will work.

Ni-cop, you can get it in 25’ rolls or pre-made sections just like regular steel line.

It costs a little more, but you can tie and twist it into a pretzel shape without kinking it. Your double-flare setup is all you need.

I have heard you need to tighten the fittings a little more to get a seal.

better half and I were actually at the race.....before the Thunderbirds roared over, the announcer made a point to say this was the LAST time because of the sequestration.....no kidding....even the announcers have gotten the word from the rat machine...

the race really was uneventful....we pulled for Kyle Busch but glad he was at least in the top 10...don't know why he got penalized since we didn't have those radio ear phones thingamagig....

surprising how many people travel for Nascar...at least two different couples from Canada...one couple from North Carolina...people from my state of Washington and Oregone....people of different sizes, shapes, lots of kids, a few blacks and seemed like lots of hispanics too...lots of women love nascar...Las Vegas hotels were jammed with Nascar fans this weekend....

one downer was the "shuttle" system....we waited for close to two hrs and then another hr back to the strip, and there were thousands behind us...

shouldn't complain...the shuttle tickets cost up to $45 a piece, and we got them free along with our free race tickets....(it pays to build up comps while losing...lol)
