  1. The best time/memory you have with your nissan!

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    Hmmm. My first Nissan was a 4-year old Datsun 1200 for commuting to college. Best time in that was tooling down a backroad one night buzzing hard and seeing elephants at the edge of the road. Best time in my SE-R was my first autocross. I was driving an S-10 when I had my first sexual...

    Man, the only exam I have to worry about is for my prostate. Thinking about Dr. Jellyfinger gives me the willies.
  3. A $1000 NA Shopping Spree

    Thing is, you can spend that big money to buy a good car, or spend it to make a car good.
  4. Belief in ET's ?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    If the Universe is as vast as claimed, there MUST be other intelligences out there.
  5. Ethanol blended gasoline

    General Discussion
    Ethanol has roughly 65% the BTUs of gasoline. Its octane is indeed higher, but its energy content is lower. To properly use any oxygenate to full advantage, one must increase the compression ratio to regain some of the lost work due to the lower BTUs. Fuel injection fuel maps should be...

    Use that thousand dollars and your Sentra as a down-payment on an Altima SE-R. Best way to make big horsepower from that G-note.
  7. "will it take off"...?

    What accelerant do you intend to use? I recommend napalm.
  8. True or False Thread

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    False! Drifting is just as lame as Neckcar.
  9. "will it take off"...?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    Thus spake slartibatfast: This is a simplistic and rather unrealistic viewpoint. I would not say that if it were my point of view. Because I'd be too blind to see my point of view was wrong. Sounds like some people need to read Edwin Abbott's Flatland; then maybe they'd see how they're not...

    Just fly that plane off the conveyor belt and drop burning bags of shit on his car.

    Okay, we know what's good. Now, what's bad?
  12. "will it take off"...?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    As Insanestvtop pointed out, the question as it's posed is misleading. It merely states "as the plane moves". Those who say the plane will fly assume that to move the plane must involve a force external to the belt/airplane system. The plane WILL fly if airspeed Vr is attained via this...

    Einstein is rolling over in his grave that a simple frame of reference problem is so difficult for some to see.
  14. "will it take off"...?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    You are missing the fact that the aircraft is not COUPLED to the belt. All work performed by the aircraft's engines is applied to THE AIR surrounding the plane, NOT the conveyor belt. Imagine a small plane on a small conveyor. You are standing on the runway next to the plane. You push the...
  15. "will it take off"...?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    I recant my previous declaration in this thread. The airplane will indeed fly. The aircraft engines are exerting their force against the air. Therefore, either the plane must move through the air or the air must move around the plane. Regardless, lift is developed. Granted, in the real...

    Jet engines are mounted on huge structures with strain gauges attached at the mount points. Fire it up and read the force (probably in some silly metric units). This is then converted to pounds-force thrust. Huge structures??? Yes, the largest engines are now producing over 25,000 pounds of...
  17. "will it take off"...?

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    I seriously cannot believe this has gone to six pages. The plane would NOT lift off. The conveyor counteracts the force of the engines such the plane is stationary relative TO THE ATMOSPHERE. No wind, no lift. No lift, no flight. Moving air under the wing (due to the jet engine) without...

    I'll be trailering my B13 SE-R through Little Rock next May after the Convention...
  19. True or False Thread

    Nissan General Discussion Archive
    True. Now for a quick step back in time and space -- Token asks: "Water is most dense at 4 degrees celcius." Nostrodomas replies: "False" Damn, Nos, you'd better get your money back from your school system. You just got pwned. Back to now. Nostrodomas will back-pedal like a Honduh owner.
