In honor of the late great Bitza thread "What you listening to ??" here's a thread on what you watching on Youtube. Don't forget to add the video link for Chrome browser users.

So what you listening to right now??

I'll be adding to this thread a lot.

Currently this genius...
Got the parts to build some Atmos surround speakers hung from ceiling using this technique. Plan on doing same for center channel speakers.

Also spent hours watching his jet engine videos I'll link to later when not in cell service.

Don't do Crossfit but they have some great content:
TeamRichey
Buttery Brothers
Misfit Mayhem
Josh Bridges
Dan Bailey
Brooke Ence

Other Fitness stuff I check on the regular:
Meg Squats
Buff Dudes
Athlean X

* I watch all of this to keep me motivated. Watching ridiculously fit people working out keeps me inspired. Especially the women. Not because I'm a creeper, well partially. I like watching them because they typically are lifting weights I know I can do.

Been kinda hooked on Dr Beau Hightower lately.

Generally go down musical rabbit holes: Reggae, Metal, Rock 80's/90's Hip Hop, 50's 60's pop/soul/rock, country...etc. Have this stuff on mainly as background during my day job.

Good one! I love watching pool from 8 ball to snooker, and my current fave is Bank Pool, especially if Shane Van Boening is in the game. This game is SO hard that we had to modify the rules to make it easy enough to even finish a game in one evening. Also epic is Efren Reyes playing One Pocket, another tough game.

https://www.youtube.com/user/adric22
This 8-bit guy's home network setup is much like mine.. only im in a 1 bedroom apartment! three 8 port managed switches, 2 with LAG connected sending full bandwidth gigabit FiOS down a 70 ft hallway to get max transfer between two 30 TB NAS boxes (1 soon to be 70TB), and various devices all connected wired. I think I have 3 out of 28 gigabit ports free (including the ones on the modem)! I also have a wireless transmitter sending gigabit ethernet signal across the street to my garage which I will get a receiver set up at my garage once it warms up again so that I can set up a modem/switch up inside garage with computer/tv. Currently I can't get wifi signal when the garage door is closed due to weather. Ha!

Synthetic vs Regular Two Stroke Oil Test
Cheap vs Expensive Two stroke oil test that tells the obvious but gives the reason why synthetic maybe better than regular two stroke oil.

Ginch, definitely boring, but I totally agree with his opening statements about the PHBH......"we're all looking for something a bit more exotic". It's funny how we have these very primitive engines, which just need a bit of petrol and air in the right quantity and ratio, yet we can tie ourselves up in knots and/or spend oodles of cash on high-end carburettors, when the trusty old PHBH was all we really needed. Not entirely true if you are using reeds and need > 30mm, but for what they do for an old Vespa, a PHBH is bloody good value!

Some good information but not all of it. The best takeaway from this that a correctly set up carb is powerfull and safe but not necessarily economical.

Swa, just bought my first PHBH and hoping it's less hassle to set up than the PWK (although that may be something to do with the particular motor). The wealth of knowledge on jetting them certainly makes it attractive.

When the video was put up on my local (Oz) FB group, a whole lot of people with a whole lot of different setups said that was exactly what they happened to be running, with only differences in main jet size. Some for 10+ years.

Jack it's good to have a known good starting point, makes experimentation that much more interesting. Also good to know it can be jetted pretty close this afternoon, rather than 40 pages later!

I think Jack is more trying to promote a methodology of how to find the correct jetting for each individual setup through removing any bottlenecks in the system then dialing it in for each unique setup based on how it is telling you what it needs. Unfortunately lately threads like mine involve someone like me who is very inexperienced with carbs and jetting only having 1-2 years experience with them so that leads to excessive pages of questions trying to figure out what various symptoms mean!

It is good to have a known ballpark to start and i think in a few years we will all get it pretty well and be quicker at it on our own! Plus the added benefit of having some known baselines to work from in the future from all of the various projects doing it currently on here.

I'm guessing none of this is new info, just being focused on and discussed so intensely on here right now.

Will have to re-watch after work when I can turn the sound up to something audible. Love the idea that the controller is down low, it's such a bulky thing.
Not sure that these ride videos ever demonstrate anything useful though.


See if you can watch this and not find yourself leaning in your chair... very exciting racing and fantastic video capture. The guy riding, John Chitoglou from the Hornet racing team in the BSSO, is one crazy guy.

Rowdy - great find.
Had missed your prior post on Resistor's thread.
Interesting thing about the guys who are solving while keeping the motor (which I like a lot) rather than a hub motor - is that it keeps the gears.
But none of them have geared it properly!
I imagine you could use super tall ratios - and a little extra bit taller rear wheel - and make the gear's useful with a smaller motor.
The advantage would be: less power = far more range - but still have something that did 60+MPH.
Cool post.

Ginch - my fave part of that video is that he seems to let everyone pass him off the start - and then just chases them all down!

I'm pretty sure they are running several classes together, and I think he's in the open/unrestricted class. So starts at the back of the field as a matter of course.
An interesting thing that the team manager told me was that the smallframes on the circuit typically have around 35hp, and the Lambrettas around 45. Yet they are quite competeteive with each other.

Of course, I've been watching this as well -

Slow motion video of a clear carb on a 4 stroke but you get the idea of how it works on a two stroke.

Yeah the end of the carb looks like a male genital until you focus and see its the connection for the carb to the motor. ROFL emoticon Goofy emoticon ROFL emoticon
