Re: Carlisle 2020

I think this will be a day-of decision for me, literally. Honestly, the showfield doesn't worry me at all. I expect a lot of people to skip this year entirely. Theoretically, that should make social distancing easier. It's the hotel that skeeves me out. It's laughable to think that budget hotels out...

Re: Kumho Ecsta 4x size in oem rims 05 sxt

Just to throw it out there, I ran the exact tire in question: Kumho Ecsta 4X 205/55R15 on my Neon for years and loved it. The tread design will provide you the extra grip more than the width will. I'm currently running the same tire in a 16" size on a different car. You're not going to get 50k miles...

Also, for me personally, I never had a problem with Motel 6. If we end up back there, I'm good with that.

All of the major harness connectors on my Mazdas (door-to-body, ECU, body controller aka "PJB") actually say Lear right on them.

I wonder how club participation is going to work (ie. what club name are we all registering under). I already registered with 2GN.org, but I'd imagine I've got several months to change it.

This style locks in place, so you don't have to hold the spring tension while trying to get the locks in place. http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/B0YAAOSwt7pXLOlF/s-l300.jpg You can find them for under $50.

Re: Don't rely on Gates for timing components...

Interesting read. When I did my last timing belt, I used a Gates belt, Litens tensioner, and Mopar water pump. I was pissed because every aftermarket water pump comes with the gasket. Not the Mopar!

By the time I got rid of my Neon, I had replaced 3 of the 4 wheel bearings. Shockingly, the driver's front was the only original one left. With all the exit ramp jackassery that car saw in my ownership, I can't believe that's the one still good at ~220k miles. If you end up replacing a front wheel b...

It seems that way I guess. I really do enjoy the ones I have. Just like my Neon, my two Mazdas are/were:

- bought used with very low miles
- 2.0L
- manual
- more fun to drive than anything on paper would lead you to expect

I used Mopar PS2 spray paint. I sanded it smooth and coated it in silver, filled the slots and numbers with dark red paint, then cleared over it all. Two years of regular use and it's still smooth.
Interesting. I wonder if I can get mine to look that good in PX8.
