    I've heard lately that Schumacher might go to Haas now.

    Both Haas seats are officially open. A Williams seat is alledgedly open. And nobody confirmed at Alfa Romeo yet either. This is the silly season that keeps on getting sillier.

    Red Bull back to Renault? I don't think that's likely... I feel like that bridge got burned and burned hard. I've been reading that Red Bull is looking to take the Honda engine in-house.

    How much slower is a Williams than even a Haas? It's gotta be a 0.3 to 0.5 seconds, no?

    A Merc engine instead of a Ferrari? I'm wondering the same thing, to be honest.

    So, new rumors are the Russian kid in F2 will be going to Haas as Williams try to sign Perez and give Russel the boot. Which has Mercedes all sorts of angry at Williams. Interesting development; not sure if I were Perez I'd sign with the only team that is routinely slower than Haas even though...

    Unverified Ownership All roads lead back to Mazderp - altoid's second Mazda3

    Must be a Mazda thing. I did that last weekend with Costco and my girlfriend's Camry.

    Online Meet Up Perhaps? - Saturday 10 October 18:00 UTC

    Depends on what I'm doing with my local friends this weekend; I think we might be having a meetup of our own. I'll keep my eyes on this thread. I may also be out; my girlfriend wants to go out and about (masked up, of course!)

    In the interim, I cannot recommend enough Costco for car batteries. I bought my original 51R there in 2016, and it about 24 to 28 months into its 36 month warranty. I brought it into Costco in 2018 and they replaced it without question. As I mentioned previously, it cost me about $3.50 in...

    Battery is very dead. Won't even take a jump, or my girlfriend's Camry doesn't have the oomph to boost my Miata. That doesn't feel likely. I have a feeling it's just dead; the Florida weather is pretty hard on batteries. Luckily, I buy a battery with a three year warranty and they always seem to...

    Ownership Verified: EyeMWing bought a sensible car?

    Some dealers are EXTREMELY mod-friendly, especially Subaru ones because they know about the big aftermarket culture. Others, not so much. I'm pretty sure you can always flash a stock map back on if needed, or even your old stock map.
