    I've read in a magazine (I think it was FHM) that the company which armors the Presidential fleet also has other options... Underbody grenade protection /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif, smoke screens (don't most Chevy's have those in their exhaust???), and an oil slick dispenser in the rear bumper to deter pursuit. While it was mentioned that this option was illegal in the USA, I was wondering...

    Would a standard winshield washer fluid pump have the ability to pump oil through a tube/sprayer in the rear bumper?

    No, I don't plan on putting it into practice /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif; just curious, and eager to hear the technical side of this!

    I thought about it-- these don't use valves at all, but depend on gravity to keep the fluid from just leaking out (right?). So that means one would have to find another system. I was thinking about a sort of dumping tank... /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    It seems to me that this is a little more than just a thought in your mind /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I think it would. If not, a fuel pump would work.

    Of course windshield squirters make great sprayers for bleach to smoke your tires, or "trac bite" to make them grip if you're hacking something together. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Probably not. Oil has too high a viscosity for it to spray out of the same nozzle. Your better off using a inline fuel pump from a diesel truck (self priming) which will build 5-7 psi, then adding it to some "larger" nozzles. A good larger nozzle would be a bar type sprinkler (the one with a row of holes). Other than that, you need a few gallons of oil (old motor oil works, but vegetable oil is more environmentally friendly), and coolant is another quick substitute, its pretty slick too on concrete, but not nearly as good as oil. The reason oil works better is that it tends to stick to the wheel for a longer period of time, increasing the possibility of causing a slide out.

    Underbody grenade protection used to be just a plate of steel, but I believe nowadays they use kevlar sandwiched between steel or some other material.

    Bleach is for smoke. add a small fitting in behind the cat, and then hook that up to your window washer fluid pump. (with a high temp hose of course). Then squeese away!

    People used to do that to do proper burn outs on their tires. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    BTW, none of you are acutally gonna do this right? RIGHT?

    I dont want to be behind any of you when you start doing any of this!

    I'm the kind of person who would look at all the information for something like this, draw plans, make fittings, and then realize I don't have the money for it. I've learned to stop before I start!

    This topic is just for fun and discussion.






    Or is it? /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Bubba- Any idea of the legal ramifications of this???

    1: Having the equipment for show?
    2: Actually using the stuff on the road?

    Oil, dangerous substance which could cause accidents. Also environmental hazard.

    Do it somewhere controlled like the driveway or dragstrip and use something that is a little better than oil.

    Lol, I dont mind if you build one, but you better only use it in an emergency (Like some wacko is trying to run you off the road).

    Vegetable oil, bio degradable. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Motor oil, bad for environment. I guess you *could* try astro glide or KY jelly too. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Its safe for rubber and its water based... /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    You never did the NYC cabby method? I see it all the time- they just open the window, start spritzing the windex, and turn on the wipers.... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    YOU PUT A WASHER PUMP IN THE TRUNK WITH A HOSE GOING TO EACH FENDER ABOVE THE REAR TIRES AND HAVE A RESERVOIR FILLED WITH BLEACH AND HIT THE SWITCH TO BLEACH YOUR TIRES WHILE LIGHTING THEM UP. IT IS AN OLD STREET RACERS TRICK IT MAKES YOUR TIRES HOT AND STICKY SO WHEN THE LIGHT TURNS GREEN YOU GET INSTANT TRACTION AND THE OTHER GUY DON'T /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    A guy I knew hated tailgaters--he used to have a spare vaccuum hose hooked to manifold vacuum lying on the floor of his cab--when some boob would start tailgating him,he would pick up the hose,pull the pencil he had stuck in it out,and inserted it into a 1 qt.container of used motor oil or diesel fuel--presto--no more tailgater!He once nearly got arrested when he backed his truck up to a dance hall,and ran a vacuum cleaner hose from his tailpipe to an open window,because he found out his girlfriend had snuck out on him to go dancing with another guy!.He really smoked the place out bad!. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif
