    The Car that shouldn't be ruined but will: TSX Wagon

    Lexus LS430 Trunk Struts

    The trunk struts (shocks) that make the trunk easy to open and close have been broken for a while on my mom's car. I feel like doing a nice thing, so I was thinking of fixing them, especially since I'm going to be doing absolutely nothing over the next couple weeks. I know one of the reasons why...

    Remote Control Toys

    I just got this today Its a Traxxas Stampede. It has a brushless motor, and as a result, runs rather fast (I got it up to 30ish in the dirt). I used to have a RC10 until the back wheel bearing became shot and it stopped working. So, post your rc vehicles. I'm sure I'm not the only one...

    http://www.reuters.com/article/GCA-GreenBusiness/idUSTRE54J04Q20090520 And that is the reason why the federal government should NEVER take after California.

    Northern California/North Central Valley Meet

    I was driving down the 5 freeway from Tracy, and stopped in Patterson for gas. I looked across from where I exited, and there was a perfect driving road, and looked at it on google maps.
