    Loved the vid, sounds great. I'll admit, I thought we might get a smoky burnout in that vid.. Hint hint!?!?! LOL

    Thanks for the smiles.

    You guys may think I am wierd but I cannot bring myself to do burnouts. I guess it is the old dilemna of mechanics not making good drivers and vice versa. IWith the new Mickey Thompsons, I am not sure I can do a burnout I will keep you in mind next time the sun comes out and I can go out.

    TIRE BREAK-IN INSTRUCTIONS;
    Place left foot firmly on the brake pedal applying positive pressure, using gas pedal bring RPM up while slowly releasing brake pedal pressure until rear wheels spin without moving forward, hold brake and gas pedal pressure constant until desired WHITE smoke appears..........

    So at the end of the day I have 16 quarts of moonshine sitting around in the garage. I have a friend who is suffering from an incapacitating disease and wondered if they are being affected by shortages. Hang with me here. Ethyl Alcohol is as effective as Isopropyl Alcohol for surface cleaning. So I contacted them to see if they could use some sanitizer. At 100 proof, the white whiskey is about 50% alcohol. So the answer was certainly. The challenge then is to brave the forces of social distancing and make the delivery. In a way, it is like the old days roaring out of Harlan heading for the Cumberland Gap. I am titling this the run to glory. https://www.thejacksonscottbatesfoundation.org/ is the location of the Foundation page for anyone else wanting to contribute.

    So I raised the front stance from 4 inches to 6 inches. I took it to my alignment and suspension expert Gerardo Gutierrez to tweak the overall setup. Keeping on top of that makes it a breeze to check, tweak, and perfect the alignment. Gerardo is the only guy I let touch my car's alignment.

    Post Thanks / Like
    I realize carrying a load of crap in your trunk is not the reason that we built these cars, however, a small number of items can prevent a $150-200 tow bill, especially if you are on a long haul trip like Biloxi in the summertime or the power tour. Had a friend ask for suggestions on what to carry and how to carry it for a long haul road trip. Some of you may recall I have been working on that for some time. Had a friend breakdown at a car show once and we had nothing to do simple fixes. So I went out and bought some Kaisen Foam and made up a couple of place holders in my hidden compartment and populated them. There are a milion combinations and permutations of things to bring, especially on a long haul. My thoughts go sort of like there are really must haves and a lot of nice to haves. Here is my current list:

    Must Have
    1. Electrical Tape
    2. Fuses
    3. Zip Ties
    4. Dykes/vice grips/needle nose
    5. Allen Wrenches
    6. ratchet/extension/deepwell sockets
    7. Adjustable Wrench of Combination Wrenches
    8. Screw drivers, flat blade and phillips
    9. Flashlight
    10. Cell Phone Charger/USD/Lightning Cable GoPro Cables
    11. Rags or wear an old shirt
    12. Protection?

    Nive to have
    1. USAA or AAA roadside service
    2. Jumper device or Cables
    3. Multimeter
    4. Bulbs
    5. Jacks (sissor or hydraulic)
    6. Chocks for Wheels
    7. wrp n Ethyl hand cleaner

    What's your list?
