If I am going to get superpowers, this is going to be the place.
Background: after experiencing numerous problems with my previous car, a relatively low miles ‘10 mini cooper s, I decided I had had enough, and began shopping for a used car. I was already looking at focuses (focusi?) As my experiences really turned me off of non-porsche german cars, leaving only the focus and the…
I went karting up at Pittsburgh international race complex, had an absolutely amazing time. This would be the first time on legit racing karts for me.
I am immediately happy with my mudflaps. Wow.
Obviously I didn’t have the scratch to buy a focus RS, I bought the ST. But after seeing a similar car with a set of mud flaps ( and constantly dealing with stone chips and mud on the front doors of the mini) I am considering this for both aesthetic and practical reasons.
I wasn’t aware this is/was a thing. I’m glad someone saved it.
KB pistons. 600$. Ordered almost a month ago.
Figured I’d combine these posts, since they are directly related. We took a quickie 2 day vacation down to DC, Saw the monuments and a good bit of the Smithsonian. Before we went down, my dad changed the oil on the escape. Advance was running a promotion that gave a free pair of hoonigan branded “speed socks” with…
Hot damn, that’s customer service Summit. Not that I can really do anything since I still have to wait for Saturday for my pistons to come in (direct from manufacturer), then next thursday to get back from vacation to take them to the shop. Maybe I can change out my motor mounts instead.
Forgot to post the pics I took today.
So as mentioned my engine is going to need bored out, and new pistons to go with it. I have it narrowed down to ordering some nice higher compression pistons to rectify one of the Olds’ biggest problem of a 7.9:1 CR. Might as well since I am spending the money. The question is that only one part number is listed, but…
Work is finally being done.
I was wondering how long it was going to take me to curb these rims.
This is a multi-faceted repair post.
I know some of the oppos on here have some interest in watches. Let’s put it this way: the sears near my house is closing, leading to some interesting sales. Unfortunately, tools weren’t really that discounted:
Vintage grand prix pix, to prove I can do the whole instagram brand management thing
So that 8$ tool that the factory service manual doesn’t mention: absolutely critical.
I like Corvette. Singular.
The only thing I don’t like about my FoST- the shift knob looks and feels cheap. I couldn’t replace the one on the mini, due to BMW proprietary shenanigans.
