Washing cars is easy. I'm not too lazy to wash a car. but I do use brake dust treatment on my wheels.

just a spray treatment after you wash the car and dry the wheels. it makes it hard for brake dust to adhere to the wheels and makes cleaning them easier.

LOL **** no.....Since my miata is slow right now I'm actually taking corners in it so I'm not such a noob. Yesterday I took a freeway onramp that was rated 45 at 46...That's right, I'm basically a pro now.

Next on the agenda is relocating everything to the trunk so the car has 40f/60r distro....Then datalog with markers and tape of course......What do you know about throttle response? That's right nothing....Be gone n00b

God I love this shop. I've used them a few times. Got two tires mounted & balanced and drove off the lot in under 10 minutes. no lie. they pulled my car up at 12:08 and I was on the road at 12:17.

and now i can get this failed sticker removed tomorrow.




Car is 70000 times smoother now. lol.
