# Tutorial: How to make Kinja comment pictures bigger

Hello everyone! Most of you are aware of the fact that roughly two months ago, Kinja removed the ability to magnify images posted in the comments. So, I’m here to give a quick lesson on how to get a full sized image from Kinja comments, or, in layman’s terms, “embiggen them”. Let’s get to it, shall we?

# Tutorials Moved

I moved my car articles from my personal blog to the oppo blog so they are much easier to find. Just look up the Tutorials tag whenever you want them.  Also, this allows others to participate.  Also, to compensate for this blatant repost, here is a picture dump of drawings I have done... in order of newest to oldest.

# Shock Absorber Tuning

In a previous article I had briefly mentioned some of the effects of shock absorbers.

# So What Makes The 911 So Magical?

It has always bothered me how a car like the 911 can still manage to be so competitive with an absolutely horrendous weight distribution.

# Component Design

As I finish up my final semester of Mechanical Engineering, I thought it would be interesting for people to see how Engineers go about Engineering cars.

# Carbon and Composites

We see it everywhere, but how much do you know about carbon fiber and other composites?

# ABS, ESC, And Their Effects On Vehicle Safety

The second last article I wrote was on the effects of different differentials and traction control systems.

# The Effect of Weight Distribution on Turning Moments

In this I will be discussing the effect weight distribution has on a car while it is in a corner. i.e. oversteer or understeer.

# Differentials and Traction Control

Hello all, I just finished writing my last Final Exam for the semester and thought it would be a good time to write another tech article.

# Hydraulic Launch Assist

Hydraulic launch assist is a form of KERS. Except instead of using a flywheel or batteries/electric motors. You use hydraulics and nitrogen cylinders.

The concept works like this.

1. When you step on the brakes, a hydraulic pump engages.
2. The hydraulic fluid that the pump moves compresses a nitrogen spring (a nitrogen…

# Aerodynamics

Aerodynamics is a very intricate subject area, but I will do my best to present it in the simplest terms possible.

# Suspension Part 2

In this article I will start breaking down and describing the various suspension components, and how changing them effects handling.

# Data Acquisition

There are three main ways to understand how a car is behaving.

# Engine Tuning Part 1

In this article I will discuss the basics of resonance and manifold design.

# Tyres/Tires, part 3

Since I feel it necessary, I'll talk some more about tires.

# Suspension Part 1

As promised, an intro to suspension.

# Dynamic weight distribution and transfer.

Now onto a bit more of an interesting topic.

# Static Weight Distribution and COG

As pointed out by rigid in a response to my first article, vehicles rarely if ever evenly distribute their weight among their four wheels.
