  1. Soon to be 15 years as a club. Idaho Turbo Diesels has been going strong since early 2002. Wrench party events. aka bomb parties. dyno days. camp trips and off road adventures. 4wd and utv and atv. shooting events. in addition we just had an anniversary for our website. December 6th of 2016 marks our 10 year anniversary of our website, which went on the air dec 6 2006. register and log on to be able to view all of the forum! our first wrench party event was in june of 2002 in Nampa Idaho. soon to be 15 years since the club was organized. our organization is for all diesel owners or for all interested in diesels. we have dodge cummins , chevy duramax, and ford powerstroke along with import diesels and other interesting conversions. we even have non diesel owners participate in our events, shooting and off road and camping. an enjoyable 15 years with the Idaho turbo diesels club. thank you to all who make it happen!

  7. In the United States, outdoor target shooting has been suspected as the source of numerous wildland fires1,2. Anecdotally, the ammunition involved in most incidents is thought to be of ordinary commercial varieties with bullets composed of inert materials including lead, steel, and copper. No scientific studies have specifically addressed projectile behavior or properties related to ignition of wildland vegetation or organic material. Thus, the primary focus of this study is whether inert projectiles fired from commonly available modern rifles can cause ignition of wildland vegetal matter. The possible mechanism by which inert projectiles could cause ignitions involves the conversion of kinetic energy to thermal energy at impact with a solid object or target. Kinetic energy is proportional to the product of an object’s mass and square of velocity, which is well known for the vast variety of cartridges available for modern firearms. In general, pistol cartridges are designed to propel a bullet much slower with less energy than rifle cartridges. Rifle bullets should thus be the most likely to have sufficient energy for ignition, provided some amount of that energy is converted to heat after impact. Table 1 indicates approximate muzzle energy for a variety of different cartridges. Ballistic impact has been researched extensively but has been directed principally toward understanding penetration or perforation of target materials. For a particular target, projectiles of a given speed will perforate it at higher angles (closer to normal) and ricochet at lower angles (more oblique) (Johnson and others 1982,
  8. indeed finding chrome to be much better than iE now. in fact some websites, with using IE and doing a post, the ''enter'' button does not work. weird stuff.

  12. looking like a camp trip
  13. great time with a good turnout except we about ran out of seating. the big room had a weak a/c and that needs fixed so we used the main dining room and grouped a few tables together. seating worked out and food was good and we had a good time visiting with all you good people made a plan for a future itd camp trip at an undisclosed location. to be discussed in detail at upcoming idaho turbo diesels dinner meet.
  14. Air Cooled Hemi...

  15. today is the day cya in a few hours
  16. A new injector seller?

    I will share more on the doc p fiasco later. I just wanted to share this: yep, one must study and learn before making the purchase of something as important as injectors. and that goes extra for CR injectors due to the many complications of their function.for a worthwhile read check out this thread: many dishonest vendors are out there. also there are many who purchase uneducated or they shop by price alone. a mistake as this 03 guy finds out. follow this thread along and see how this vendor buries himself. thankfully some out there have some education and experience and will share. buyer beware. ask for specifics and educate yourself before writing a check!
  17. A new injector seller?

    yes I can tell you about doc p and his products and way of doing business. I had purchased from him in the 90's for my vp truck. from what I learned back then he is a crook. do a search on TDR for dr performance. pretty bad rep as being dishonest. now CR injectors? I would love to see his work. if they are anything like what he offered for vp trucks back in the day and tried to offer for early CR trucks, and with his lying tactics, I would bet big bucks that these are a failure as well. I will offer more input on this soon. buyer beware!
  18. Sub compact tractor

    was a good naturally aspirated powerplant but was in the inferior Polaris platform. a lot of guys had success adding a turbo. however the last couple yrs poolarrass chose to switch to a dam china diesel, I believe it is ''cherry''. if I remember the cherry gasser engine from china is the engine artic cat is now using in the wildcat. put the yanmar in a Yamaha Viking and I would be interested.
