  1. As always Jay.. informative.
  2. I had the same basic issue with my 08 Corvette and is well know in the Corvette world. Drain and refill with GM fluid and all is well.
  3. Yup... But, put a good driver in the seat with slicks/skinnies and he will be close to you. I will have to be a bit more careful when I see a Stang pull up next to me.
  4. Speedy you better not run into a new 2020 GT500 Mustang. Some guy flew to pick up one, put some break-in miles on an stopped in Dallas and ran on 10.6 on pump gas and street tires. Now that being said, he is not much of a driver, But then he is a Rookie.
  5. Dang... updated GEO Tracker!!!! LMAO
  6. Outstanding Jay... Do you think the original HC engine would have gotten you to the 9's?
  7. Checked the net last night and Wally World had Penz 0w-40 Euro for $27 and free delivery to the store. I ordered a 3 pack.
  8. Yup... I switched to Mobil 1 Euro.
  9. After 3 years I decided that I needed new wiper blades on my Scat Pack. So, off to my local O'Reilly's Auto Parts. Dang, $29 a pop for non-OEM blades that may or may not work. I just happened to be in Wally World with my wife and went to check out their wiper blade selection. They had a bigger selection price-wise but still a universal fit. IE - you have to use the right adapter. So, now I am down to searching the internet. I found a Dodge deal Grapevine, TX, just north of me, that had OEM versions for $20 apiece. I ordered them, had them in 2 days and installed in 5 mins. OBTW - Refills where not to be had. OEM Wiper Part Numbers Now that I had the new blades I decided to see if I could find replacement rubber refills. Low and behold I found them on Amazon. Yes, they are made and shipped from China. But, the real deal here is a pair of 26" 8mm wide only costs $4.99. I ordered 1 set to test. Shipping is really slow. Why did I order the 26" version? The Scat has a 24" passenger side wiper and a 21" driver's side wiper. Remember they come in pairs and the cost difference is like 20 cents. Replacement Wiper Refills It takes all of 30 mins to remove the old wiper rubber and replace them with new rubber. You just need a small screwdriver to release the rubber from the blade and a razor knife or side cutters to cut the new rubber to length. Step 1 Remove the old rubber with a small screwdriver. Step 2 remove the metal mounting rails and cut the new rubber to size. Step 3 Insert the mounting rails in the new rubber and re-install in the wiper blade
  10. Yup.... Forgot to check the obvious. Swapping out a battery is a game-changer in this technology for sure.
  11. I had a 2010 Challenger 6 speed stick and it was pretty quick for a 5.7. But, the Scat Pack 392 8 speed is far better and quicker, I don't think it would take my 08 LS3 Corvette (12.4) though.
  12. Sweet - Leg Maker FTW Dam it sounds nasty!
  13. Kewl beans... Grandpa Greg Can't lift more than 20 lbs.. Well, I am not touching that one. lmao
  14. I could live with this.... They add a touch to the car and are not obvious like the widebody version.
