Todd did the hard part
I know some of you have sent yours in as well. Don’t worry, I’ll be getting those posted this weekend! Thanks.
This one from jSchwa, who actually put a WRR decal on his Mercury Cougar…
Watch for this and more on the show off page this weekend.
Short 1 yet again this week. This time, Todd couldn’t make it. db and Gabe carry on without him.
-We are not all in SoCal. Only db is.
-db is NOT a geometry wizard.
-Todd was outvoted. -JCW Tires for Gabe? -Tires are black, round and they do wear out. -db lied? -Too much brake dust? Want better stopping power? Change your brakes. -To compress the rear rotors, you can get a tool or use one of many different ways. Check out this NAM thread or Harbor Frieght Tools.
-Tear off’s on wheels? Gabe, get on it!
-OEM Pads made of chalk? -db doesn’t like a big brake kit. -But big brakes do look hot. -Big news for the week and some rumor squashing -Don’t wd-40 or armor all your brakes. Really, we were joking. -This is the first non-Todd cast. What a trooper! -db kinda knows what he’s doin’. -Remember when installing the JCW intake, it’s 113 and white with red stripe. -ECU is skippable, but really, you should think twice about it.
We should all be back next week, barring anymore alien abductions or black 7 series pulling up. Can’t control those things.
