Am I being way too picky in trying to find stainless steel or titanium, countersunk torx head M5x8mm screws for my steering wheel?

I don't want aluminum
I don't want allen heads
I don't button heads

Maryland Metrics is another great source for obscure hardware. Their website is so horrible that it almost defies belief, but they have pretty much ever fastener which has ever been created.

Really wish I had a tig or even a spool gunned mig welder to make myself a lighter, aluminum DP back exhaust for my already heavy poopra. But then again im not seeing tracks on a normal basis so its mostly a waste anyways.

Okay, try Hewes Fastener. If they don't have it, they can get it. If they can't get it, it isn't made.

I like how our new endurance car completed more laps on today's shakedown test than Red Bull F1 in all their test days combined

I just applied some Gtechniq G1 to both of my cars.

G1 ClearVision Smart Glass | Glass

It is ludicrously expensive (well, not really since it is good for many applications and lasts so long) but it works amazingly well. I finally had to reapply after about 16 months of abuse. They claim two years. Aquapel claims "months".

Can people even use that yet? I never even looked into it. Last thing I heard was that people stopped trying to sign up because the website was shitty and the coverage was ****.

Anyway, the Army should be paying for this...stupid ******* color blind bullshit.

Edit-PM coming your way.

Mine are overdue for extraction, but I'm not only poor and without insurance, but even when I did have insurance, I hate doctors/dentists. I'm being a little bitch about having it done. Plus mine aren't really causing much issue.

In this ******* day and age, why can we not have audio leveled more often than what we do? I'm so tired of nearly blowing my speakers out on a daily basis, going between videos, websites or my music. There's always that one bastard video that is incredibly low leveled, and then I forget to turn my volume back from 100% back to 25%.



Daily rant.

Thinking about getting a Header / cat /exhaust package (I'd use a test pipe, no cat beats "high flow"), some sort of intake, a FM clutch happy meal with the 10lb flywheel and a Rev built MS3 and a 91 octane tune. Convince me that I must be high as **** otherwise I'mma gonna doo it.

Might even use E85. Maybe even high comp pistons. ¿WHO KNOWS?

*this would be temporary. Once I head back home in >2 years and I have the time and workspace their will be turbo glory.

**I think I remember Hustler doing something like this on his VVT swapped N/A NA car. I will look this up. Also 949's NA N/A car.

Sounds like a lot of trouble for 10whp to do the header/exhaust/int thing. The MS3 will get you more than that by itself.
