Re: Walmart Battery Finder

I am using a 96R type battery in mine and it is rated at 590 CCA, which is why I chose it. It is a straight drop in. A 47 or 48 series will also work (H5 is like a 48 series in size.) I thought of using a 48AGM but they don't like high heat... The original battery connection was stupid and mine went...

Red XR4Ti spotted in in the wild...

I was talking with a mechanic friend of mine and he mentioned he had seen a red Merk a couple weeks ago in Tulsa. It was an 88 or 89, I guess, as it had one rear spoiler not biplane. Anyone in here?

Cheers

Re: Anyone like their Chromebook?

Hi, Having only looked at those at point of purchase long ago I have to plead ignorance of knowing what special feature would it have as you mention? The software is somehow adding another feature? I would like to understand this. Please explain. Maybe I will go and look at one at Wally World to see...

Re: Anyone like their Chromebook?

A web site with free Android downloads so you could update to a new version on your Chromebook with that.

http://www.android-x86.org/

I guess a Chromebook is ARM based but not sure. This site has versions for x86 like normal PC stuff and ARM for tablet type gear.

Re: Shopping for the XR4Ti for Christmas

Hi all,

Thanks for the reply. Are the solid bushings alloy of some sort? Not poly I would guess. Do they use the original bolt or need the longer ones offered by mc2?

Anyone used removable paint on wheels?

I am thinking of trying this as a temporary option before I decide what to do long term about wheels. The paint is partially rubber based, it seems.
