    I picked up some 'lovely' orange/pink coloured athletic shoes some time ago for driving (and cycling) with: narrow sole; lots of mesh for cooling; stiff area under the forefoot for spreading the...

    Re: Compression test results

    Haasad recomended ensuring the throttle was wide open when doing a compression test. With the SUs, would it also be appropriate to lift the pistons? Thanks, Doug

    Had fun reading that. But 'tough' is not a word I'd use for much/many in the driving world. Tough is being able to cope with life's little challenges, or at least being willing to try to cope with...

    Re: how to have music/radio when driving
