Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

The moran OEM engineers can't do anything right. Actually, it's the cost that drives people away from OEM. The OEM accessories development cost is way higher than some dudes in a pole barn in Idaho. There are plenty of big aftermarket, like Rigid industries, Fox, AEV etc that actually get better th...

Dem bicicletas dos, doe.

67 today. Great ride out to a local beast of a climb called Welsh Valley. Dropped my sunglasses and had to go back and get them because poor. Then a kick ass descent down Clothier Springs which winds along a creek down the side of the mountain. Easy ride on the river trail back home. Felt great to ...

Man, we got the grocery delivering thing a couple of times (Instacart/Aldi) in the beginning of the 'VID and it was serious money, like 100% upcharge on regular pricing once tip and everything is factored in. I wonder how much of that the grocery getter gets. Maybe I should :doit: . Don't really ne...

It seems there is a massive shortage on low wage workers. My company has loads of open customer service and warehouse positions and can't find anyone decent. Fast food places are nearly unusable now, it's almost guaranteed you'll be shorted items, served completely wrong food, you name it. Weird ti...

I could probably stay at this company as long as this company continues to exist and slowly get promoted up. But :notsure: I have much desire to do so.

Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

Yea quite curious myself. It is essentially a modern less quirky FJ cruiser. Should ride and accelerate much better than a :wrangler: but I don't see it being as off road capable. Also 0 aftermarket which is kind of a big selling point for the jeeps. It'll take at least 3 years for aftermarket to b...

Any tracks up your way that can't be missed? :iono: if I'm going to keep the 'vette forever and may eventually dial it back to just a couple track days/year as it's really fucking expensive and time consuming.

No, I wasn't able to, so that could play a part as well. They had like 20 street miles on them and then straight onto the track. They did perform better on the third session, could be that the coating was burned off and it had also cooled down a bit. I don't know about those falkens specifically, b...
