What did you make the inserts out of?

That reminds me, I've been thinking about getting one of these. Do you think it's heady duty enough?

Stainless but it doesn't matter. If there's relative motion, something's going to wear. I might toy with some bonding agent. Mind you, this is only my semi-experienced engineering hunch. I'm not an expert but I've seen enough snake oil to be cautious. I like the outrigger braces.

Stainless would just eliminate the play. A rubber or poly insert would be better id think.

I bought a gopro thinking I could make videos for autox and motovlogging...


Then I looked at the computer hardware requirements for 4k video editing....

Looks like my 8 year old laptop won't cut it.


I did not budget for a $2,500 new computer

We have missed you!

Do you still have your 2013 FR-S?

Is it under the valve spring recall?

If so, have you had the work done?

Yep, several of us are still here - we just don't know when to shut up -
