  1. Ayep. Just because there isn't an obvious cost, doesn't mean you didn't pay for it. Which is fine, so long as We, The People, continue to have a say. Those days are getting numbered or are already dead.
  2. It does cost. It was funded by congress/EO under the Covid bills. Check out Pfizer/Moderna/J&J stock since March-ish.
  3. I have a Makita 1/4" hex driver. Breaks loose just about anything 14mm or 9/16s and smaller unless there's a problem. Use it ALL THE DAMNED TIME. Love the tool, and even my dad has been converted from "batteries suck" to continually buying more and more 18v tools. Milwaukee has an M18 1/4" brushless: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-FUEL-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Brushless-Cordless-1-4-in-Hex-Impact-Driver-Tool-Only-2853-20/305059614 And brushed (with 3.0ah battery): https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-1-4-in-Hex-Impact-Driver-Kit-with-One-3-0Ah-Battery-Charger-and-Bag-2656-21P/304138981
  4. Good lord these are great. Sorry about your day...
  5. Drove a buddy's YXZ with the Fox shock option through the whoops in the Washes... Never before have I experienced such a combination of compliancy (no harsh bottoming, good control) and nausea-inducing head toss. It was surreal how it wasn't at all painful but crazily disorienting. Friend driving (not the owner) and I fell out of it laughing trying not to puke when we got back to camp. LOL. Once upon a couple of decades ago, I spent 6 months at Nissan USA. I spent more time getting shot down by the accountants and manufacturing engineers than I ever did designing anything. Decided the auto industry wasn't for me. Still more RZRs have burned in the dunes alone than Can Ams at the plant.
  6. Believe the whole point of buying something new is so you don't have to deal with it for a while. Coming out of the bead? Sure, that could be the tire, could be the rim. Out of the sidewall of only one of your new tires? Nope. Try again.
  7. Them duke boys are at it again...
  8. Lol, naw. LS going in the Jeep in a couple weeks Nice. Definitely the way I’m leaning right now
  9. @tjZ06 Yeah I’ll pick it up. I have a loooooooong trailer. Lol
  10. Since you guys on the surface of the sun... Consider your workspaces in relation to the door. If they're close to the door and it's open a lot to cool things off (relatively speaking of course), the fixtures above the door will be blocked and will need some downcast wall lights to make up for it.
  11. Have any pictures of your steering rack setup?
  12. That's the problem I'm having and seeing what there is for the 10-12 year old range. 90s don't have the power to pull a 70-80lb kid up anything but the kiddy dunes. 250s are generally meant for scared adult (or near adult) sized people. As far as weight goes, yes it helps keep the bike under control, but it can also hurt. Put a fat guy on a 450R who insists on leaning to the inside of a "corner" even on the face of a steep bowl and he'll roll it downhill every time. I generally don't let my kids ad-lib the larger stuff and rides are of "momma duck" style and will be until they're fully grown. As with everything, it's about riding within your limits. What happened to Kelsey really sucks, but I've seen 200lb dudes do the same thing. I don't think 40lbs would've fixed landing sideways after jumping the lip, but that's my idiot opinion. Or, I can put her on a 450R/Banshee as suggested in this thread.
