      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hopefully Gordon! He'd have 5 or 6 Titles if it wasn't for this chase non-sense so I'm hoping he steals one.

Highly unlikely though!

I would agree with JJ. he is running better every week and they have been through it. Busch has had a great year but it won't be so sweet if he does not win the championship.

If Hamlin keeps his streak up he may be the guy? Consistency is always the key and what is he at, three 3rd place finishes in the last three races or something like that?

Hopefully not because I really don't want to hear all about the Toyota this and Toyota that stuff. Maybe next year will be a better year for Toyota to get a championship!! grin

Kind of hurts to say this but I think it may be the 99 car.

There is the 88 sitting there to.

If the last few races are any indication the #48 may be the man to beat. Unfortunately I do the the #18 will be right there right along with the #99. It could end up being one heck of a battle. I would love to see the #88 right in the mix, but they haven't been real consistent as of late.

If I had to pick....

1) Johnson

2) Shrub

3) Edwards

4) Earnhardt

5-12).....take your pick

Still hoping Dale Jr. and his crew find a little lightning in a bottle and get hot over these last 10 races though!

Jr's pit crew this season at times has been on the slow side but the last few races they have cranked it up and are a little faster in pit stop times which should really help. Now, its up to himself and his crew chief.

Jr has had a very good year and I will agree they do need to crank it up a notch to another level to contend for the top spot.

Might need to throw the 29 in the mix as well. 7 top tens in the last eight races, with 4 top fives. I think it'll be a pretty interesting chase. 1 DNF for anyone and its pretty much all over.

If JJ can't win it,then I'm pulling for Carl... I just can't believe I just said that, pulling for a Ford of all things eek. But then again, anything would be better than Shrub

I think JJ and his team finally got the kinks worked out at just the right time. That's my pick.

These last 10 races are set up well for guys like JJ, Carl and shrub....or vice versa maybe....these guys are set up well for the last 10 races. Guess what I'm trying to get at is JJ, Carl and shrub all excel at the type of tracks that make up these last 10 races. I for one think the cup will be between these 3 as that's the way the season has gone, but I certainly wouldn't discount any of the others. Not before the chase starts at least. I don't know if any one team can afford a mulligan with the quality of contenders in this year's chase.

    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.
