    Are you talking about the first start after installing the Cat? Or has this been going on for a while?

    If it's the first start after installation, you're very likely just seeing manufacturing oils...

    We've always stayed somewhere on the south side of Knoxville and just driven down in the morning.

    Depending on your choice, one thing to keep in mind this time of year is your proximity to UTenn...

    Nice work; I would be interested in one, as well.

    I've got the 3D printer for rapid prototyping, but don't have a way to actually make rugged parts yet. Would love to get a mill and/or lathe.

    Absolutely agree. And to go along with that, so many people go in groups - and while someone might be driving at 5/10's of their skill level, the person following is driving at 9/10's of their skill...

    Can confirm. :witless: Paid $20 earlier this year about two weeks after getting my Cobalt back on the road after 3 years of collecting dust in the garage, lol.

    Rear tires at the wear bars. Heater core is bypassed (assuming that means it needs changed?). Hopefully the harnesses can actually be run through the cutout in the seat.

    I love the new RS6 Avant. Badass machine.



    Honestly, they aren't anywhere close to that bad. I'm sure any of us could think of someone that has X-car and just terrible luck with it (similar to...

    Have you looked at anything like an Audi RS7? Might be a bit on the high end of things for the price (especially the first two that I found and linked, lol), but they are fast, fun, and pretty comfy....

    Thankfully the rotor held itself together otherwise and that it happened at low speed.

    I picked mine up with 2-piece Wilwood rotors that are drilled. They're on my list of things to replace before...

    I'm betting on the PCV grommet, as well. I have the same issue and I'm pretty sure that's my problem. I already have the replacement part, but need to get new I/M gaskets and figure out if there's...

    I'd say it'll fall in the $60-75k range. I'm going to guess $69 thousand. ;)

    I've seen a lot of non-B&W Gen II's popping up in the mid-60's lately.

    Definitely good to measure your basic components. You should be fine with the standard size so long as everything measures out right, but you can also measure your gaps with plastigage. I didn't...

    I totally didn't even notice the accelerometer readout in the bottom corner of the video. Mind blowing.

    For reference, an F/A-18 catapult launch peaks at 4 G and averages out to 3 G.

    I can't even begin to IMAGINE what that kind of power in a car must feel like. A fighter jet? Have you guys measured the g-forces experienced in-car?

    :dropdev:

    Awesome stuff though!

    Oof. You're making me nervous. I'm at 61k miles and am pretty confident that the first owner tracked the car.

    Curious to see what route you take with this. I'm taking notes for sure, lol.

    If you're worried about this statement, don't be. Some states do this with just about every registration/renewal. I know Texas is one of them.

    I have those Continentals on mine. No issues or complaints.

    The main thing to keep in mind is that your Speedo is going to be inaccurate. It'll display a slower speed than actual - my actual is...
