Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Today I paid $3.359/gallon for 91-octane ethanol-free premium, which is my current fuel of choice. After my home state’s years of leading the league in eastern US gas taxes, it’s my fervent hope that NY officials don’t find out what other states (primarily PA) are charging. These clowns have never m...

LOL! He now wants the moderators to get involved, classic "snowflake". Yeah, but he is also asking for the GWITF thread to exist, so maybe he's not all bad. Funny how with out "the usual suspects" that the place is as off the rails as ever. If that guy has his undies knotted now, just imagine if Sc...

Re: @#$& horn!

So I'm going to find a way to keep the hook in the cabin from now on just in case access to the frunk is ever forbidden again. A while back I rummaged through eBay and found a mostly complete tool kit for, IIRC, about $25. I was mostly looking for a new tool roll, as mine had disintegrated, but it ...

“Achilles” is maybe not the most confidence-inspiring brand name I could think of for a tire. Of course, neither is “Federal.”

Another possible use for it would be an old fashioned, college-style fundraiser: a car smash! A $10 donation & you get five good swings with a sledge hammer!
I dunno ... I’d be surprised if you could raise more than 30 bucks before that thing is toast.

Public Service Announcement: if your suspension fork has magnesium lowers, you'll want to replace those. Axe me how I know. If you haven’t already fixed this, I’d recommend ditching the suspension fork entirely. A suspension-corrected cro-moly fork will be lighter than the suspension fork and far s...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

I was irked that Louis totally pooched his one and only shot to pass Max, but stoked that Kimi got the win and that the championship wasn't decided and thus didn't detract from his podium. The Ice Man is the man, man. Agreed ... great win by Kimi. He should also be able to set a new record for F1 s...

Not only did he not slow down, if you watch he started in the right lane, moved left, sped up a bit to pass people, and then cut back over into the right lane. That there has to be a Massachusetts transplant! I was thinking maybe he was from Jersey ... Massachusetts driver wouldn’t give up the left...
