      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 .

i would geuss wheel out of balance or a bulge on the tire. second guess would be a cv axle. had a car that did this same thing the funny thing was is the cv didn't make any noise when turning but, above 50 it shook like crazy.

Could be as simple as the tire balance or a bad tire. Hopefully that is all.

However, that series of cars had, afaik, some front end issues with premature wear and or failure of some components.

This was my Eagle Vision from the same car family, albeit a bit older. Lucky I was going slow in town after just turning a corner. You wouldn't want this to happen out on the highway/freeway.

I'd get it looked at right away. What is your safety and peace of mind worth?

My 83 Buick Park Ave, which always rode great, like a Caddy or Lincoln started shaking really bad in the front end. The front right tire had a belt broke in it. Put new tires on it and rides great again.

Ya if it happens at a specific speed get the tires checked. I have had 4 tires do that to me now.

Like Whoareu99 said, with those cars it never hurts to give the front end a once over too. Its cheaper than a accident.

If you bring the car in to a shop, tell them it viberates, have them check out the tires and front end parts, then balance the tires. I am sure they wont charge any extra to check it over for you.

I have had broken belts in a tire and it did the same thing. I would also check to see how much sand/gravel is in the back side of the rim. I have had this happen alot but I grew up on a gravel road but even the sand they put down this time of year can get behind there.

    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....  
    • So does watching your food like a hawk using conventional methods. If you have to bag your food and submerge it in the fish tank to keep from burning it then cooking might not be your thing. 
    • Why don't you help the man sell his sled. Can you do a meme of Franken grabbing it in the headlights?
    •   Has to do with Del's Donald Trump fascination.
