    The COVID19 SCAMdemic... It's Monkey Pox Season - Will You Surrender Your Freedoms Again?

    I assumed it was obvious to everyone that we’re referring to your average track day enthusiast, not a professional race team at Le Mans.

    Jay, looks like they just took a Scotch-brite disc or wire brush wheel to the surface to remove the head gasket material. 😄 The issue that people don't understand is that the gasket imprints on the soft aluminum head, and on a forced-induction engine it's just a matter of time.

    The COVID19 SCAMdemic... It's Monkey Pox Season - Will You Surrender Your Freedoms Again?

    I have no clue how I got roped into this shitshow of a thread, but I'm letting myself out. I can only handle but so much bullshit science-denying rhetoric. I will say that I'm totally shocked that someone who doesn't believe in valve jobs and cylinder head resurfacing, also doesn't believe in...

    You think a drag race determines if an engine is reliable? Try 2-3 hours of grueling track time before checking that box. 😄 Some of the most jerry-rigged setups I've ever seen were at drag strips. #doavalvejob #resurfaceyourheads

    Yeah no, I'm pretty sure all understand the car is pretty kickass. I think the problem came when it was compared like for like with a GTI. Not very useful to compare a $50k car with a $25k car, and then claim we're all waisting our time modifying a GTI. I've worked on everything from pro-touring...

    This /\ But that's also because we're not comparing the performance of a $45k+ car to the the GTI's $25k. To the OP, nice car! My only criticism of the car would be the automatic transmission over the manual. :D If you don't mind my asking, what was the reason to get rid of a 2015 R (assume...

    Bought a 15 SS

    Unfortunately, I think we'll keep on dreaming for a while. With GM axing Holden production in Australia, the SS is a limited run anyway. I was really hoping a rebadged G8 GT would be here for good, but realistically it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Chrysler has had very good results...

    Exactly. GM already has the Cadillac ATS and CTS, why they felt the need to option out the SS to the point of Cadillac-esque luxury is beyond me. Give us the option of a base L77 6M Commodore at the justified price of ~$30k, and they'd sell like hotcakes. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
