Most of the workshop guys here to do a layer or two of clear urethane to keep it pristine for a few more years.

I've been running 205 on track for the last few years and will likely bump up to 225 later this year or next.I run a set of cheap 16 x 7 with 225/50 16 on the street.



Can' wait to try these

I'm not sure if this has been confirmed or not.

Moog RK100136 are reboxed SPC LCA. Ordered from rockauto. They were $120cad cheaper shipped than branded SPC through FT86MS.

Replaced the original 7 year old battery in my key fob. No big deal, should take about 2 minutes to do but I'm old and need directions. This video helped.

Mine takes a CR2016 battery. If you have a dollar store close by you can pick it up cheap. I got 2 for $1. at the Dollar Tree.

A bit of trivia. What does fob mean? https://www.quora.com/What-does-fob-mean-as-in-key-fob

I turned it on and honestly I like it. I've driven a manual for 20 years and I'm well skilled in taking off on a steep incline, but I still find it to be a nice feature. :flamesuiton:

I had min on. The issue I had is on small inclines and sometimes flat ground it is to aggressive and you have to use more clutch/throttle then needed before it lets go. Drive with it for a while and report back. I had mine on fo a month or two and it became annoying.

Thanks for that input. I'll definitely play with it for a couple of months and see.

See that's where I'm glad I have a 2016. There's no light for it on my gauge cluster

just a note-- my grandfather is a passionate penny-pincher, and always uses dollar store batteries everywhere. they don't last anywhere near as long as a genuine energizer or duracell battery. in my experience, if one gets 6 months out of them, they're decent.

they also tend to leak out more consistently than they keep the battery juices in, which is a massive pain to clean up...

for an extra $0.45/battery, you can get a genuine name brand battery that will last at least 2 years minimum.
