I understand that cap plies prevent a tire from growing due to centrifugal force at high speeds. Therefore a high speed rated tire (Y) would likely have more and stronger cap plies than a lower speed T tire would have. A quick trip outside

Thank him for his service. I remember getting a box from UPS with my son's clothes sent back to us from boot camp, a letter from him followed about a week later. He's still in, this April will be 9 years. Time flies.

Also, every couple of years, if I still have enough paint left over, I will touch up the garage door and other trim of the same color. But, every several years, I will paint the whole/all of, door/trip. Makes everything look nice & clean!

Some of you guys better not drink out of the garden hose either. I don't think many are talking about running 100LL exclusively in small engines, mostly just for longer term storage. I use non-ethanol 91 octane in my small engines, then run a tank

Charlie's original article: http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1004378/why-nvidia-chips-defective Generally, it is easier to "bake" notebook/laptop boards as there is less plastic, and less non SMD capacitors to damage with the heat.

Samsung just released new firmware for the EVOs to address the old data speed problem. Main difference in drives now is the MLC/TLC memory. Longer warranty/reliability/speed is usually with MLC NAND. It is a bit more expensive, but worth it to some

Such a small amount shouldn't be a problem, but if you want to be super sure, do a 100mile OCI on a cheap hdeo instead of using a flush. It works out a touch more expensive but we BITOGers pay to sleep well at night

Since not all of the oil is drained during an oil change, does the remaining flush do harm when in the motor?

Google Picasa, Yahoo Flickr or Imgur are the best place to host your photos. People that use Imageshack or Photobucket are sadly driving a Model-T.
