Re: Obligatory C5 Thread

I will be that guy with z06 seat covers in a base car :okboomer: :ohdang: Those might be the ones I gave to Troy. Silver in the middle? If so, those I got as a licensing approval example when I worked in accessories and performance parts at GM. They were supposed to be destroyed, so I gave them to ...

Re: Obligatory C5 Thread

USPS scheduled pickup has worked for me. I used it to send out my ebay sales last week and send some :poorvette: junk to Griff.

Shipping a sway bar is probably :waxer: :doe:

DFD Couch Racer Chat: Forza and stuff

Yeah in order for drivers to take it seriously, the track operators will have to do the same - both by enforcement of rules and and making it cost enough to cover actually maintaining the karts. Can't happen out here :doe: because low population density and 6 months of winter to destroy the track. ...

Re: It's Not Easy Being (a darker shade of) Green

Definitely not buying tires in the foreseeable future. If our income doesn't go down and the Dow goes up to 30k then I'll grab some PS4S. I fully expect to be on some kind of welfare by the end of year. This ain't the Pay Area and we're far from essential. :eeyore:

Re: It's Not Easy Being (a darker shade of) Green

I am nearly :triggered: by the fact that you’re running the exact size I wanted to run but I was too much of a :crang: to make it happen. Noticeable ride improvement? How’s the road noise ? It's way better controlled but a little more harsh and loud because these are the dumb OE prius summers. Stil...

Looks nice! Are they a little less tall than stock ? Also dat rotor rust :doomed: Nah those are stock tires, the suspension just wasn't settled and I accidentally left the camera on wide angle mode.

Re: DFD Couch Racer Chat: Forza and stuff

Only downside is sometimes the karts doesn’t randomly or they just aren’t as well maintained as others. It’s hit or miss but it definitely adds to the drama of the season. I did 3 GP’s before our daughter was born and I won 1 of them. Yeah in order for drivers to take it seriously, the track operat...

Re: DFD Couch Racer Chat: Forza and stuff

Arrive and drive karting should be the future. With electric motors they should be able to make them more equal if someone wants to have a more serious league, with licensing required to run the fast karts so that the general public doesn't bash them to shit.

Eh maybe in like July if you have a mansion on the lake and a Porsche to hit the Glen. The Bender-in-laws might have that though, IIRC they're crazy rich.

Re: OT 17: WELCOME TO THE CORONADOME!

Yeah if we had anywhere else to go, we'd have never come here in the first place. Our best hope is that they make the WFH option permanent. Second best is being laid off. Ithaca would have been a :nice: place to spend the spring/summer as long as the college kids went back home. There's a great waf...
