Check the voltage of your maintainer and the float requirements of you battery. Sounds like it may be keeping the voltage to high and boiling out you battery. What maintainer are you using? I would go with Battery Minder, cost more but engineered well.

Raceseng lugs. The craftsmanship is absolutely exquisite and pictures don't do these justice.

No doubt there's nothing better than these lugs that cost more than the wheels themselves!

Swapped in a basic rear-view mirror and mounted a mirror based “dash” cam to it and mounted the included rear camera on the back window.

Also, drove the car in the rain for the first time. The grip pads on pedals are garbage. Foot slid off the clutch pedal twice.

Hell yeah. What’s the lead time to machine and get it back?

I launched my BRZ and my already overdue clutch started slipping on takeoff. So today I put it on jackstands, took the skidplates off, and I'm waiting for my Exedy OEM replacement

I have been using Battery Tenders. They have not been an issue on the other vehicles they are used on. Recently I have changed to a Schumacher dual output charger / maintainer. This works well as two cars are parked one over top of the other on a stacking lift. Time will tell.

GS Dry Filter

Installed today. Main reason was for easier maintenance, but first drive seemed to have reduced torque on low rpm. Let’s see how it goes after a week or so.
