MB makes engines that small? I guess they do. What’s it, the size of a Thanksgiving turkey? (completely baffled)

New higher-end cars generally don’t need a key at all. An electronic fob in your pocket allows you to use a push button without a key being inserted at all. Some cars don’t even have a place to insert a key.

I went back and checked your old posts. Most of the time it was you starting the name calling. Knock it off. Many of the people you consider ‘infiltrators’ were here long before you.

The carjacking software used in that study was from 2010, light years ago in terms of hacking software. (Great link, btw!)

"The research team then developed Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol sniffing software to locate, observe, monitor and subsequently take advantage of security weaknesses to bypass rudimentary protection within the car and take over aspects of control from the driver. Perhaps more worryingly, they also managed to plant malicious code which would completely erase its tracks after any crash."

I think the 1.8 is the smallest USA engine by MB. They make smaller ones for Europe.

It’s also insight into how an engine that small, secured by only three (I think) motor mounts could launch through the safety-required collapsible front end if a front corner hit something like a tree at a high enough speed.

The new F1 racing engines are about 98 cubic inches and thought to produce 600-700 or more horsepower.

Several manufacturers sell cars here that have 2 liter engines making around 275 horsepower.

Thank you, didn’t mean to hijack the thread. Only think I’ve ever owned are 260s, 289s, 302s and 351s. I simply can’t think that small.

keeping the thread BUMPED!

Thanks. Do you have any idea about what that sentence meant about the key? Just curious. (I HATE it when technical writers aren't specific.)

It’s just a button on the dashboard which you push to start the car. You have to have the electronic key fob nearby (purse or pocket)

Maybe these people should just released the information instead of letting their enemies know they are going to do so before the fact. Because after all is said and done and these people are buried, we still don’t know a damn thing that could possibly bring these criminals down.

If you mean post 98, I did not see what 2009 vehicles were used for the hacks, and at least one of them did use a traditional key starter.

Mercedes “Keyless-Go” is an option on the C250.

I will NEVER believe that Breitbart died of a natural heart attack.....NEVER!


Never.

I knew it as soon as his Breitbart employees all immediately said he died of natural causes before any autopsy was done. And the one eyewitness saw him turn bright beet red before he passed.

Breitbart had dinner with Ayers & Dorn 3 weeks before his death.

If the sex scandal “leak” leads back to Hillary being the one that did the leaking, that’s enough to shut Hastings down.

Danny Pearl was also “shut down” during his investigation into the KLA being connected to al Qaeda.

Everything I can find says the C250 is fueled by gasoline.

Please see post #124. My earlier speculations re: diesel were not based in facts.

Not a hellfire. I’ve heard one take out a car. The “Whoosh...... Boom” can be heard from at least a mile away. There were witnesses and people awake at the time and no ones reported a missile sound.

The smaller engines are all the rage now. They use high pressure injectors to inject fuel and air at 100s of PSI prior to combustion. The effect is the small engine has an effective displacement of several times a conventional engine nullifying the ole Cu In. comparison. Check out the Rotax engines. 400 hp in a bread box.

I hope that Edward Scissorhands clipped some info on the alphabet shadow government(s), complete with some eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence names... and for crying out loud future whistleblowers turn the info over to WikiLeaks and get it over with, (ixnay on the Guardian/Wanking Post types) because it's going to happen and can't be stopped.

Isaiah 47

The Fall of Babylon

1 “Go down, sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter Babylon;
sit on the ground without a throne, queen city of the Babylonians. No more will you be called tender or delicate.
2 Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams.
3 Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one.” ...

8 ‘Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure, lounging in your security and saying to yourself,
“I am, and there is none besides me. America, the only superpower...

15 That is all they are to you – these you have dealt with and laboured with since childhood. All of them go on in their error; there is not one that can save you.

Ouch...
