I don't always watch Fox News, but when I do, I'm only oogling Megyn Kelly. Too bad she is ******* stupid and needs to keep her trap shut, except maybe for when I'm docking my submarine in her pen. That new short hair style she has is quite ******* hot.

Will an NB diff carrier fit an NA, bolt on with no modification? I can't recall if they are exactly similar or not. Found a 3.9 Torsen I really want to pick up.

Same. No problem.

Thanks. 3.9 won't be much of a change over 4.1, but the slight increase in gear will be nice for the amount of interstate cruising I do. At least lower my rpm by ~200 at 70mph.

Where is Houston crew? I'm drinking all day tomorrow. You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

Bridgestone RE-11 are some pretty awesome tires. So much more responsive, so much more grip, better ride and more quiet than my old Falken ZE-912's. Of course that's what you get with a better engineered tire with stiffer sidewalls, better tread design, 140 vs 360 treadwear...

I wonder how they compare to the RE-01Rs which they replaced. Mine are just about gone.

The 01Rs are truly excellent street rubber, still proving good grip at nearly 5 years old. I plan to run 'em until they cord.

Surely at least as good, if not a little better. I always thought the 912's were pretty good street rubber, which in their respect, they are, but they are also an all season tire with a pretty hard compound for a longer tire life. But the RE-11 completely blows it away in every way. They could actually be better, but I have a 205/55 on a 6.5'' wheel, so they are a bit bunched on the wheel. On a 7 or 7.5'' wheel they would really shine. Overall grip is phenomenal, and at the limits they seem pretty predictable. I'm pretty responsible on the road, but I can't help myself on long loop on-ramps and interchanges, as well as back roads with low traffic. One of my favorite ramps I could take on the 912 at about 65 with the rear end right on the edge of breaking loose, I would have to feather the throttle and correct to keep it on the road. This morning on the new tires I took it quite leisurely at 75 with no signs of breaking traction. AWESOME! It actually has brought up a new issue. My FM springs are too soft, at those speeds turning that hard I had some rubbing issues from body roll. Which is fine, Mono Flex are on my check list of parts to buy for build mark II

Sometimes I wish my elbows had giant spikes on them.

Walking to the check out in the 20ft wide lanes of Home Depot. A family of three walks in through the exit, led by an exposed 300lb gut peeking out through an undersized shirt. The fat ***** walks straight towards me, fat **** father followed by fat **** wife and fat **** son, obnoxiously enough that I had to completely stop while they zigzagged around left right left around me.

Don't you love that! I get that treatment, or used to more often, from fat *******, often fat black women. Plenty of room to go around and they walk right at you. Now I typically bravely keep my ground as the 350lb fat ****** waddles at me like a loaded down tanker. They either hit me and I say something equally rude to them, or they figure out I'm not going to move and start turning the wheel 30' before they get to me so they can overcome momentum and divert a collision.

Anyone interested in a set of vintage spring riders??

My brother got ahold of these and started grinding them down, planning to repaint them. Thankfully I went to the shop yesterday and was able to save them.

Spring riders? You mean lip busters?
