Also, this just happened today south of us.
Yowzas! I hope you have flood insurance.

We're in a canyon but we've got a decent slope. It's also a seasonal creek, a glorified drainage channel, not a mf-ing river like you got.

No, it's the standard, was thinking about a lower setup but then I stopped using, it seemed like a waste...

I do recommend the Cat 2 lotus exhaust though,. It's great, really makes the engine sing.

I'm just thinking that your car's set-up seems closer to an Elise.

Mine has the track pack and LSD. Far from an Elise suspension.

It has the factory stage 2 exhaust.

it's funny to me how 20 years ago, most everyone needed screen savers to protect their CRT/plasma displays from burn-in. but few devices even back then had anything.

now we've got lcd, led, and oled that don't suffer any burn-in, but so many media players and tv software now have a screen savers that activate in less than 5 minutes with no activity...

Huh, I hadn't thought about this. Yeah, my Roku goes screen saver in only a couple of minutes, even though it isn't necessary anymore.

OLED can burn in. LCD and LED are the same. LED (not OLED) is just an LCD that uses LEDs behind the LCD screen instead of CCRTs for the light source.

What is the best wax for holes in your door? I thought I would try carnauba.
