114 Days: Pt III (3rd time's a charm)

Anything related to the Kizashi can go here, but please look at the other headings first. Your topic may fit better under something else.

8/27/2020 136,310 miles got the oil changed.

They also found my lower left shock bolt fully unscrewed, but were able to find a few threads in its damaged hole. Whew, dodged an expensive repair there!

So I literally watched the odometer go from 137,999 to 138,000; I think I heard it 'click'.


I think-but-cannot-prove disabling cruise control alters performance algorithms, allowing higher levels of throttle, steering, and AWD permissions. Scientific testing of this theory is difficult at best, and highly dangerous regardless; I like it. More testing required (or a wheel will fall off first).



Waiting waiting waiting for the new WRX.........

Today, at 141,560 miles, I pulled off the belt-exposed fronts and swapped on an old pair of Goodyear studded snows. Now I can go faster, and drive in the rain......

My, it's been a long time since I visited this forum. Still have my 2011 SLS. Glad to see Weshoot is still a terror on the roads of any type.

He is currently engaged in an epic struggle over that question........and it doesn't help one friend bought that crazy 4.2L turbo-Caddy, and another friend just bought a 2013 Corvette Grand Sport with 18K on it......

Neither of which will do well under the auspices of "Out smashing roads in me (insert model here)". Definitely not in either's DNA.

Tires matter; top speeds now reached on unpaved surfaces. Gas mileage suffering. Studded snows on front, smooth tires on back, too many rally videos........
