Problem is, when I try to check out, every single one of them shows as "unable to deliver to your location". Is this some kind of CA thing that I can't order a gas can? WTF?
Check the details. Says they cant ship to CA or PA due to export restrictions

How do you like em? The reviews I've read are hit or miss, some swear by them and some complain they leak, etc.

Are you using it to transport fuel? Was thinking of buying a couple and using it for track days as a cheaper alternative to race gas but since it's gonna be in a 5-door hatch, I'm afraid I'm gonna be huffing fumes all the way to the track.

They were good jugs, just don't overtighten the caps. Always keep them upright and if sitting out in the sun at the track, open the vents so you don't end up with ballooning jugs. I used to carry some 50 gallons in my BRZ to the track...

Idk, the guy behind me might have something to say at the end of the drive lol. I have been told on occasion to not hug the shoulder so much since it kicks up even more debris

The Feals were awesome on track but the compression valving was so stiff even small bumps were jarring on the street (this is my uneducated observation, I'm very new to suspension tuning lol). Now small bumps are there but easily handled and and big bumps are absorbed so my spine doesn't hurt lol
Ayyy we have the same suspension. I got the inverted ones and love them!

I don't know, folks seemed to prefer being behind me on drives when I had the car, specially on Mines

Hrm...tailgaters don't care about my loud exhaust, wondering if kicking up dirt to their cars would back'em off...but mah paint.

Rally Armor or Gorillaz it is. Thanks El Trumpster.

I had a couple moments this evening, one good and one bad.

Was on 101S heading back to SJ from MTV, second lane from the carpool and came up on a slow car (probably going 60 or 65ish). Carpool lane was completely open and no traffic around us, so I blip downshifted to 5th, swapped lanes, and passed him super easy. Felt great, especially because I've seen more hate/dislike the past couple weeks on the stock car's "power" (or lack of).

Then a shitty moment: was making a turn onto my street at an intersection with traffic lights but isn't super well-lit. It's one way to one way, so I was in the left-most lane to make the turn, the light was just about to turn yellow as I entered the intersection. Did a scan of the crosswalk to make sure nobody was crossing, and I started going through at probably 20mph. Of course a guy in dark clothes decides to sprint across as I'm already 2/3 into the intersection and 1/3 into the crosswalk. Had to stomp on the brakes for him.

Obviously pedestrians always have right-of-way, but it's just lame since I had my signal on as I drove up to the intersection, it's bright, the walk signal was obviously done by that point for the light to change from green to yellow, and the guy had to be unsafe about crossing. *facepalm* oh well.

Good thing nothing came of it. This past week had 2 people run red lights in front of me. Would've been t-boned if I drove a bit sooner as soon as the light turned green. Now I've been paranoid lately and waiting a sec or two while checking to see if cars have stopped at the red light instead of gunning it.
