Duane Ball’s Porsche Carrera GTS 904 Project

This week, we take a look at one of our viewer’s builds. This is a very interesting one to us. If you recall, we bought an electric Spyder, done very similarly to our Part Duh Speedster. The similarity was not entirely accidental. Duane Ball was doing the Spyder in Albany New York at the same …

New Project

I finally got a Friday video up on Friday. This week we talk about the fix for our Mini Cooper Clubman air conditioning (many thanks Marcus Siegert) – a simple high current diode on the positive input.
