I love taco trucks. They serve delicious tacos.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

That reminds me...I gotta lube my patio door before it freezes closed again. It was 60F overnight, down to 34F now, and it'll be 9F in a few hours. Door was frozen shut and I couldn't use it for weeks.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Vaseline on the rubber gasket. Lots of wax or Rain-X on the sheet metal/glass, especially where the trouble ice is. You can certainly lubricate the latches. Graphite powder dry lube (sold next to the key-making machine at the hardware store) is good in locks or anywhere that is dry and must remain s...

http://allofftopic.com/images/smilies/yup.gif If you're dead-set on always driving a brand new car then no, I guess you can't select for those features while cutting the price in a major way...but scale the newness back a little and you're good to go. Also try to open your mind to things you may ha...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

VW GTI - It's actually broken. Not broken enough to not drive but my gauge cluster is a Christmas tree. Error messages from MIB are reading "Error: ESC / Error: TPMS System". ESC definitely is not working as the roads have been treacherous. Tire pressure in all the tires are a consistent ...

Re: Winter Tars

i thought you're supposed to overinflate them to help narrow the contact patch and do other magical stuff. :idea: :?: It doesn't narrow the contact patch (unless you go to ridiculous levels like 200psi), it shortens the contact patch, whose width will remain the same as tread width but total area w...

Re: Winter Tars

Mine have been on since Octubre and have seen some muck. I still don't like them, but am curious of there's a rule of thumb for tire pressure. Should they be plumped higher or lower in terms of pressure than all-seasons? Thinking I could get better results by adjusting the pressure downward (curren...

Re: Winter Tars

Can we go back to calling them "snow tires" now? They're designed for winter weather conditions in wintery places; they're made for snow and ice traction. I know everybody loves to talk about grip on dry pavement in cold temperatures, but ferchrissake any crappy worn-bald tire (no-season, ...

Carbon fiber will be fine for the bed in 1500 models, most of which don't see any hauling beyond groceries, and most of which end up with bedliners before they even haul one loaf of bread. Anyway CF is no slouch (much stronger than fiberglass) and I bet they're laying it on thick. It seems like it w...

Re: Where can you work on your car?

I saw a place today with equipped bays to rent by the hour.

It's not cheap though. $15 for a half hour or $20/hour.

Made me think that we ought to draw straws at work and loser (Winner?) has to drive through the flock without slowing or swerving to avoid hitting them. After a while, they will all move to the backcountry to get away from the crazy city drivers. The large 50mph main road near my house has a sectio...
