Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

So if I'm on the left do I just sit there all day while people arrive to the right of me?
Is this a polish stop sign?
Do I get my international driving license if I park at the left most stop sign...

Re: Repost? Porsche PCA 911 GT3 Cup

The RS is the C+C edition. If anything the touring is the opposite. You can't quote downforce or 0-60 times sans PDK and be impressed.

Re: Brake switch, ASC sensor, or both?

Its not hard, but Id suggest taking your drivers seat out. Takes 20 mins to save 30 mins of being upside-down.
I've never heard of the switch causing ASC issues however. Any ABS lights?

Re: Thermostat housing seating issue

My aluminum housing weeps. It may be metal, but its no improvement on the Oe plastic housing, it’s a step backwards. My vw days led me to believe otherwise and make this poor decision.

Re: 37K-Mile 1995 BMW M3 Coupe 5-Speed Daytona Violet

They have been that level for years now. That car is certainly an outlier on condition to get that premium. I’ve been hoping to pick one up, but at that price I think I’d get a 964 and keep my e36.

To be fair, its pretty obvious on ECS site that you are either getting an OEM part, OEM substitute, or garbage, and its up to you which you choose.

Thats why the 919 Nurburgring lap record was set on heat cycled Hankook I-pike ice and snow tire. So soft they were basically melting at the start line.

Re: Aston Martin to beat Porsche's shiny new Nurburgring record

The westopher e36 m3 will beat that record because I came up with the idea that I'd make it faster.
Might want to get a little more reality in before they start making claims like that.
