    Looks like biking could be some sort of subcultural footnote on the Rev.

    Back in 2014 I spent several months training GF in prep for bike tours in Europe.
    She instantly failed the public roads, but here managed a polite trail in the Wachau Valley Austria, opposite the village of Durnstein.


    Yet another recommendation, a guided tour in the hills above Beaune France.


    Dropping down from the cliffs...


    ...zooming thru the hamlets...


    ...and the hectic cross-town traffic...


    ...then snacking in the vineyards...


    .. or lunching down in the valley where in particular villages on particular days, Ferrari's swarm like flies.

    Probably Meursault.

    This is the fourth issue (crazy idle/droop) I've had on my 16v that's due to a failed solder joint. Unfortunately the pin sleeve fell out of the connector when I took it apart so I had to improvise with a barrel connector and proper crimp.

    Took a $20 gamble on a 6mmx1.0 speedbleeder being the correct size for the clutch slave. It's the correct size and was money well spent.

    Found out my fan clutch is toast, my A/C compressor clutch fell off (must've happened sometime last week), and got a speeding ticket on a country road. At least I'm getting over my cold...

ID:	10331Went to smog my 190E today. As soon as I showed up to the station after driving around 15 miles he told me to go drive around for another 1 hour and come back. Took a trip to the MB dealer and picked up some parts. Yes I passed smog.

    I'll do a build thread here pretty soon.

    The drivetrain and mounting are more or less complete.

    I'm now focusing on electrical, cooling and other ancillary systems.

    For anyone wondering...

    Yes, the hood closes.
    No, it's not a MB tranny.

    I'm guessing the 722.6 was probably too tight in the tunnel? or you had a demons desire to use a manual behind that lump.

    m113 is definitely a favourite for sound.

    I am getting used to the whistle in the m157's exhaust now though.

    This C32 engine to W201 is my dream job..wow it's going to be the best mate . keep posting more pics thank you .
    Understanding your 190E when drifting:
    UNDER STEER : When you hit the Pole by the front
    OVER STEER : When you hit the Pole by the rear
    TORQUE : How far when you bring the Pole with you
    HORSE POWER : How fast when you hit the Pole .
