If you're going to join we need to at least know what tire pressure you use.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Since you asked, I have the latest version of Hershey flux capacitor and I love it. I have used thousands of miles without a single problem. It is so effective that while towing my MPG is right around 40, since the flux capacitor is allowing the AS to have its own power source and all I have to do is point the AS in the direction I want to go. The only down side it trying to keep the speed under 88mph so you will need to modify your solar brakes. I suggest you use Lewstar for this upgrade. Also Since you asked, I run my pressures at 80 which is what the manufacturer suggested. As for my lash up, I have had no issues with my onion balls, ever!!!!! Even while towing in Canada. Anyone not using this system is just flat wrong but of course that’s my opinion.
I hope you enjoy your new flux capacitor as much as I have.

Great thread. I don't know how I've missed it. It's 16 degrees here this morning. I needed a laugh.
On a much more serious note, you all need to check out the new F950. 20 cylinders of diesel power. I haven't had to touch the brake or the gas in 90,000 miles, with most of those miles at or above 12,000'. I switched over once I heard that they were making the flux capacitors in China.

Flux capacitors are really popular, something thatís trending with the AS herd. Problem is that they arenít even made in this country, and folks whoíve had them very long are very frustrated with the lack of quality control. Hard to return something for service that ainít even made round here.

They really are a luxury item in a world struggling with folks looking for good jobs and trying to make ends meet. Do you know how hard it is to keep up with payments on a nice AS for 30 years? Flux capacitor, scmucks capacitor... Iím sticking to the basics the way a Wally intended.

Besides, the environmental impacts of the flux capacitors is horrific. Not to mention the materials, energy, and overseas shipping involved, the 1.21 gigawatts are supplied by a plutonium-powered nuclear fission reactor that gets dumped in the local landfill after premature failure! Catastrophic, Iím staying clear of the states where this crap is being sold.

Just sayiní

Thatís WAAAAAY too much truck! Youíll vibrate your poor balls to death in that thing! A ball can only be banged around by such a stiff suspension for so long before it becomes lopsided and fails. I have to side with the flux capacitor crowd on this one...

-Red, once again glad to be a Floridian. 16 degrees... I ainít doiní it.

But the one thing we are all forgetting is the flux capacitor 2.0 is now fueled with garbage, thus cleaning the environment. Will 3.0 not need fuel at all?

That's the 1.0, and now made in China, which wouldn't have been possible, except Hillary sold all of our plutonium to China, sooooo... it's basically the ST of flux capacitors. Dangerous at any inflation!

-Red, mixing in some politics baby...

Life and death of a thread

The problem with flux capacitors is that all of the hardware to make it run is notoriously unreliable and problematic. Sure, they look great on the surface, but when the 1.2 million a year in added maintenance is added in, keeping Biff in line just ainít worth it.

Yep, just as I suspected - people are sticking with the original (dirty and polluting) plutonium flux capacitors, not the more expensive 2.0 models. Pretty much proves my point when you canít even find a 2.0 model for sale on the OíReilly website!

Heck, ASers havenít even caught up yet on superior technologies like lithium-ion solar powered coffee makers, so Iím hardly surprised.

Anyone with a 1.0 Model needs hazmat placards and warning labels so the rest of us can steer clear...

Again, just sayiní

Can the flux capacitor be used with a receiver hitch installed on the back of the trailer to haul a Harley Electra Glide?

Absolutely!
