    Being that the 10th only gets 12 mpg when behaving (who does that) i need to start saving for my fuel funds now. When it comes to the mpg factor that 96 is so much more appealing. hyper image

    If I'm not driving my own, I will help you out. Since you are letting me be co-pilot it's only fair that I share in the funding department right?

    lmao image Hahah.. I love it! So true too! Oh..

    ****FYI*****


    When arriving at Road Atlanta.. do not.. and I repeat DO NOT waste your time at Browning Tire and Auto Center!!!!

    Some of you know and other might not.. but after my little bit of fun at Year One, my tires were done.. so went to Browning (was maybe a mile from the track) and ordered a set of tires.. showed up a few hours later when they said they woud be in.. and they said, "Oh, sorry.. we could only find three, but we have a set of these (Obviously the set wasn't as good as the ones I wanted)" But I was desperate as I wasn't going to miss the lap!! So I had him order them, said they would be in in the morning.. I said that was cutting it close but ok. Showed up that morning.. this was about an hour before we were supposed to line up for the parade lap... I was getting a little nervous, but there was still time. They installed them, I paid the $800 frown image And got in the car and left. Well, we (dad and I) got about a 1/4 mile up the road (remember the track ia about a mile from the shop) and the car dropped and made a big bang.. so I pulled over PISSED that I had blown a tire already. I walked around the car.. kicked each tire.. all fine.. walked around again to find the Driverside Front tire touching the top of the fender!!! The hub was about 6" away from the wheel!!! Needless to say I was even MORE pissed.. walked up the road to see if I could see any of the FIVE lugnuts supposely on the wheel.. nothing.. thankfully that 1/4 mile walk cooled me down a LITTLE.. walked in and apparently he could tell I was pissed, I told him I was 1/4 mile up the road and the wheel fell off.. (the 3 customers left at this point).. they towed my car back.. found 5 junk lugnuts to give me so I could get back on the road.. and told me to send him the bill of the damage. SO . when I got home, I checked it all out, rotor, caliper, rim, tierod, alignment, abs sensor, studs, wheel bearing.. all trashed. Price? $842.. took him 2 months to pay me after 2 letters reminding him. ANYWAY... the car never felt right afterwards.. brought it in to the tire shop to see if the wheels were out of balance... yeah, not ONE was even CLOSE.. they had to put on 13.75 ounces over the 4 wheels! That was less than 6 months ago that they supposedly balanced these wheels.
    So.. moral of this.. umm.. novel (sorry) is get your tires before or after Road Atlanta.. this shop SUCKED!!!!
