    Weather got NICE so I went and picked up my bike from my moms garage. Rode it around a bit and then took it home to the new house.

    So do any of you know a person that hauls cars that can get my Camaro to Tim King in Ohio? How much does it cost generally?

    Finally got the rest of the order!
  5. Nitto Ridge Grapplers

    Man, I was shocked how well these tires did in the recent Snowpocalypse! I actually was trying to see if t would get stuck by going off pavement in the deep snow, but it just went anywhere I wanted to go no problem! The same pavement I had no issues on beached a coworkers Focus. I pulled him out with ease! When these wear out, I'll probably stick with the same tire for replacement.

    The BRIDGESTONE DUELER H/L ALENZA in 275-55-20 are garbage as far as wear and durability go. Only 23k miles and they're nearly done. The right front sidewall and on top the outside tread are ripping up, too. Highway grip in the dry was excellent and even in the rain they were excellent, so it sucks that wear and durability were no good. That said... I bought some Nitto Ridge Grapplers and had them installed on the Tundra today in 285-55-20. https://www.nittotire.com/light-truck-tires/ridge-grappler-light-truck-tire/

    When I bought my Camaro, I told myself I was just going to leave it stock and drive it. It won't be long until you get bored with it and want to do some modding.

    That's cool though! Ford leads when it comes to Trucks. Now if Ford can add a water purification system, people would be set during disasters!

    Man, that's a super clean and nice looking LX 5.0! What's your plans for it?

    I've been driving in it every day. When it first hit, it was bad because it was nothing but a sheet of slippery ice in the neighborhood. Once temps dropped and more fell, grip improved. It reminded me of that hard sugar on top of cookie. The Tundra is filthy from all the salt. I busted off chunks of brown salty ice from the inner fender liners, step bar, mud flps, etc. Will get a pic later.... But those Nitto grapplers did EXCELLENT in that mess. I had no issue getting around. I even deliberately went off road in some places. I also pulled a coworker out from being stuck off the side of the road.

    This ice is a mess. Not bad on the main roads, but neighborhoods, it's bad.

    Ever use Tekton? How do they hold up?

    Got a 1/2 to go with my old 3/8. I’m not sure why these batteries look different. Hope I did t get a Chinese counterfeit when I ordered the two extra batteries.
  16. 2021 Mach1

    If it had a updated version of the GT350 engine, or some engine that truly bridged the gap between the GT and GT500, it would be sexy. Something like a Coyote 5.8L n/a engine with ram air would have rocked. But unless I missed something, this is mostly a badged up GT with a little more aggressive tune and suspension. I'd get a GT and ProCharge it with the saved cash before I wasted it on the Mach1.
  17. 2021 Mach1

    These aren't bad colors for it either.
  18. 2021 Mach1

    I'd go for the fighter jet gray, too.

    Impact sets came. They look good. Nice complete sets, too. Never heard of Tekton, but they had good ratings, so I went with them.
  20. Random thought thread

    Nope!

    Got these extra batteries my my 3/8 and 1/2 ratchets These Tekton impact socket sets will be here Saturday. https://www.tekton.com/6-point-impact-socket-set-bundle-sid99401 Just ordered these so not sure when they will be delivered yet. https://www.tekton.com/1-2-inch-drive-hex-torx-impact-bit-socket-set-sib92312 https://www.tekton.com/impact-adapter-reducer-set-sia99025 Got this to go with the 3/8 drive I already have. https://www.milwaukeetool.com/Products/Power-Tools/Fastening/Ratchets/2558-20 Just trying to round out the tools so I can do what I need after the lift goes in.
  22. Random thought thread

    Picked up an impact set so I can do work after the lift is installed.
  23. 2021 Mach1

    Not Mach enough for me... Where is the functional ram air hood scoop? Rear spoiler? Etc...

    If my car is done, I'd be down to go!
  25. 2010 Camaro SS

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smo75RWYXjzUfsZeyoilhCG0jPCzI6PBzmfOpGA_Ae4/edit#gid=0
