Did you miss the part where the fastener is under torque only because it's loaded?
Using your analogy, if you put a bolt in the socket on your torque wrench and turn it without it being under load, how much torque is on it?
As much torque as the wrench is able to exert upon it based on the length of the wrench and the force being able to push the wrench, you just won't be able to measure it.
I wasn't bashing you for JY parts, I was bashing you because you tried to make it sound like there is a perfect alternative for every aftermarket part in the JY and there isn't.
If that is truely what you meant, then I have no arguement with you on this point sir.
If you go around a corner at 35 miles an hour with 12 12' sticks of 1.25" aluminum solid bar on a lumber rack of a Toyata pick-up will you be more likely to flop with that or the same thing in steel solid bar?
See, aluminum can stop you from flopping.
Steel solid bar will flip faster than aluminum solid bar in every instance in the example you provide.
My example that is just as silly as yours, but still pertains to physics and momentum.
If you go around a corner with the same toyota, but said vehicle has aluminum wheels, axles, driveshafts, and whatever else you could replace under the frame for lightness and better performance, but still has the steel cab, and factory steel frame, and bed, then you'd still have a good chance of rolling.
My point is that there should be balance amongst parts. If you replace everything under the roll center of a vehicle with lighter parts, you actually make the vehicle more likely to flop than less likely to flop.
And everyone says I'm misunderstood.
That's just a myth, lol
