Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Just Follow The Fluids

Just so my fellow Hoons know, when you are in the garage area and ask a gatekeeper “Where did the wrecked #94 go?” And the response is “Just follow the spilled fluids.”

You know you have reached Last Call.

    I can definitely relate to this. When the skid steer we have at work started "bleeding down" a couple of weeks ago while I was hauling a bucketful of rocks, I was unsure of what was going on until I dumped the bucket, spun it around, and saw the trail of hydraulic fluid that the thing had trailed behind it. Yeah, it blew a line, and not an easy to repair rubber one. It took me and and my boss a couple of days thrashing around in the poor damn thing's innards to repair a major hydraulic hard line, getting covered in Caterpillar bodily fluids. Not fun. A trail like this is the trail to heartbreak and ruin.

      If I didn't know that skid steers were a good ol' Upper Midwest invention, I'd swear they were German for all their obscene complexity and tight clearances. Forklifts are one thing, but skid steers…

        Seriously. Flip the cab open, and it's like a plate of spaghetti. Lines going everywhere, all buried in a sludge of leaked fluid, dirt, and sticks and shit that have found their way into the hull. Nightmarish. Everything is hydraulic, pressure lines, return lines, manifolds, hell, even the radiator fan is hydraulic. All the engine is is a hydraulic pump. Actually, after replacing that line, the machine is much less intimidating/mystifying than it was, and while we were at it we pressure washed the whole thing, so next time we're in there it will be less traumatic.

    Arca ReMax race was pretty good.
    I know the circle track racing isn't the most popular subject among many but I do like your stories and topics from Daytona. You keep pushing the drama aside and find us the good stuff this coming week and at the 500 and I'll be here reading it.
    Not sure what I think of the new drafting because of the body change (again) on the Cup cars. The two car split ups just took away from the actual strategy. Yes, some strategy on the last lap to pick your passing spot for the win but otherwise it was find your partner and bang them in the backside until it was time to swap spots.

    If you get thrown out of the house, at least it's big enough to sleep in…

      That is nice. If I had two grand at my disposal, I'd be sorely tempted to go talk to the guy.
