It seems this is a special case of a factory being "decommissioned" and the molds stolen. Certainly, this is not an example of all Chinese tires. Look at that semi next to you on the highway, they run "Double Coin" tires and othe

Longer crank times could just be older gas with "summer" vapor pressure or you need a tune up/ injector cleaning etc. Is it cranking strongly? It's not arctic yet where you are, I assume.

There have been testing done that show MORE wear with more frequent oil changes. Fresh oil will strip the boundry layer of additives off and take upwards to 1,000 mi. to replace. So with more frequent OC's you are constantly stripping and re-applying

Given the diff take maybe 2 QTs of gear oil is cost really an issue? If you are going to go for synthetic, only one worth considering Amsoil SVG.

Very important is to find a shop with an experienced trained operator that is given the time to do the job right. If you can, hang around and watch to see how they do on other guys' wheels.

Well, that TPMS sensor that I was told was leaky and needed to be replaced hasn't leaked a bit. The only thing that was wrong with it was the idiot in the shop that left the nut on it only finger tight. I'll never give Car-X another dime.

1000 ft. drags are an abomination. Downsize the engines, limit nitro load, limit blower size. It's kind of silly sitting 5 minutes between each run to watch one car make a 3.something second pass, and the other car either blows the engine or goes up

These have an "auto shut down relay". Switch with another with the same part number, IIRC, the horn relay.

Possibly some water collected in the tank after sitting from the ethanol? I know you said fresh gas but the first thing the fuel pump could have pulled was water causing it to run then stall. Just a thought.
