Haha, just noticed that he converted his car to single wiper. The weight savings of that mod would be enormous. Actually every shot has the wiper stuck in the middle... is it broken?

No, it isn't broken. Since you only use one wiper and the range of movement for the wiper motor is only so much you have to put it in that position to be semi effective.

The instance I saw that car, it made me say the same thing I did when I found out my kayak had a hole in it.

Please link him to this thread. He needs to know that he's failed completely at life. He will never get better unless he's told.

I was trying to figure out why this car is not slammed. The ride height actually looks really high.

Then I realized he is probably running the stock suspension still.

A guy with that kind of intellect is not likely to have the means to afford it.

Well props to him for not cutting the springs. I guess that makes it 1 thing he has done right.
