Re: Track Report

Hep Pop, you have a Rhino too. Next time you need tires, check out the Kenda Bear Claw K587's. I couldn't believe the bite in the sand and mud. I could go places in 2WD where I needed 4WD with the old 589's.

Shocks

FYI Rock auto has a $25 rebate on four KYB shocks. Net $71 including shipping for me. The rebate comes from KYB, it's not instant.

PS, this on a buggy build (VW shocks).

Re: New Terminology

I came upon this social distancing tool earlier. It was a stick with a ball on top that had the numbers 1-5 with an R too. I found out the higher the number, the more the distance. 8)

Re: some blues in my buddies yard

Cool video; I wouldn't call that blues though. And I think the harp players Mic is custom made by Greg Heumann, he made me one and I love it.
