Having some fun in the shop. Suggest the best way to get a accurate weight of +Abom79 welding table, show how a race car tie rod is made and why we use left hand threads! There are two errors in the tie rod section. The heim ends shown on the tie rod assemblies on the car and used as examples are 5/8 x 5/8 - 18 thread. These are rated at 18,000 lbs static load. The Aluminum (red ones) on the driver's side tie rod and one shown sheared is a QA1AML-10 which is 5/8 x 5/8 - 18 thread rated at 8,600 lbs static load. The QA1PCML (R)-12's in the plastic bags are rated for 25,000 pound static load

I knew this was in the works. Over a century of independency from the manufacturer may come to an end in the U.S. But it doesn't end there. Trade agreements will make it become enforceable worldwide. ACTA suddenly becomes more than just about illegal music downloading...

If the intellectual property argument holds, it will have devastating affects around the world, not just America. How you ask. #ACTA for one. And it will be a discission point for all future trade agreements such as TPP and for when NAFTA expires. The big one will be the U.S. - EU trade agreement. The EU just signed a tentative free trade agreement with Canada, which did not specifically cover IP restrictions or limitations.

The amount of software code operating in control modules used in cars and trucks will surprise many. There are millions of lines code spread across 10 to 75 computer modules and sensors. In some cars there are over 100 modules that have software. Everything from the car's ignition module to stereo is loaded with software code. Modern Anti-lock brakes use modules and sensors that send signals to the car's body control module. That key fob that opens your door locks... Yup, software encryption keys. Mercedes has fobs that s soon as they are placed within 6" of the dashboard, all the driver has to do is hit the start button.

Even you seat memory controls use memory cards (RAM) with software in them.

The argument is when somebody modifies, replaces or bypasses such components. It can or will invalidate warranty and liability claims in some cases. The custom car aftermarket industry would effectively be put out of business.

One thing is for sure, lawyers all over the world are going to become very busy if this IP ruling holds.

Here's the thing. The auto companies are ethically correct. It is their intellectual property. This is why copycat model cars don't exist and parts that are now our of production pay expensive royalty payments for up to 20 years after production ceases.

In the past, hot rodders have argued that once somebody buys it from the dealer, it's theirs to do with it as they please, including modifying it. But California's Air Resource Board (CARB) nailed that fantasy down in several court cases including the Supreme Court.

But in am ironic twist, this very same Board also founded the aftermarket certification of aftermarket parts so any parts manufacturer could pass emissions standards in the State. This was not challenged aggressively by the auto manufacturers and largely ignored because the auto makers didn't want to carry a large inventory of parts that could require it to do so for decades because CARB threatened to force them to do just that by requiring emissions parts to last 20 years. Currently most States require emissions components to be warrantied for 5 years with some including a clause of unlimited miles.

It seems we have come full circle! This time the stakes are significant, as the price of new cars and trucks continues to rise with the demand that they last longer. The length of time people hold onto autos purchased new, now exceeds 5-7 years and still expect a decent resell price.

This is one intellectual property battle worth following to its conclusion.

Some automakers want you to stop working on your car. Here are our thoughts on the issue.
