Tomorrow, I'll try to get a pic of my front tires for you to show the feathering (rolled edge vs sharp edge on a tread block). They are freshly rotated (side-to-side) a few weeks ago, so hopefully...

Assuming your alignment checks out (within reasonable range), I'd say it is entirely normal. The feathering should be in the direction consistent with braking force (imagine how the tread block is...

I'd almost say I'd take the noise over the alternative. ;) No need for it to have to be a straight-cut gear set either, right? I'd think in this day and age it would be possible to come up with...

Given the context that made this discussion topic possible, chain designs can be just as vulnerable, it seems. The real issue is the "interference design" which is not uncommon in engines over many...

Yes, I believe that is how you would leverage higher hp...but it has to be the type of improvement (more torque going to work) that is actually increasing your trap speed. That is what will burn...

Yes, that is the number I recall, too! Nothing beats the feeling of "winning", like when you grab a $22 jug of Mobil 1, right?

I'm not talking about the gear ratio (torque/speed/rpm relation). That is easy enough to correct. I'm talking about the loss factor that changes in different gear ratios.

You take a car and dyno...

This little bit is a conceptually flawed argument, altogether. The real value in the v8 is not necessarily the pk hp (I presume that is the "extra hp" you refer to). It is just a stronger engine...

The whole notion of weight reduction vs rotational mass can be a bit dicey when it comes to stuff like driveshafts (so be careful). Things can be made in a lighter material, and it will likely be...

Yes, one poster, and then you paint the whole v8 gang in such a way...great logic!

You let someone yank your chain, and then take that as reason to reignite the whole argument over again.

Nothing was good in 1976. That's got nothing to do with v8 engines.

None of that changes the fact that v8 engines were the critical ingredient to make muscle cars a "thing" in the first place....

That's purely a boost-regulation effect. Turbos don't "naturally" peak at such a low rpm. It also doesn't account for spool-up time. When a manufacturer says a turbo engine can reach full torque...
