      The difference is in intent.
      If the intent is to create an environment where more people are driving more safely, then the fact is that clearly visible, actively driving LEO vehicles will be more...

      Somewhere along the way in there I also:
      - fabbed hinges and pins for the CF hood
      - installed new harness belts
      - fabbed up some 'door bumpers' above and below the door latch, to keep it aligned...

      And the most recent progress -

      Nearly done with re-piping the rear brakes, from the prop valve back.

      With the additional weight on the rear axle, I got rid of the L-R prop valves (in IT...

      I have the option within the rules to use a fuel cell, or the stock tank. If I use the stock tank I need to leave the stock rear bumper assembly stock. I really like where the stock tank is located,...

      Time for some overdue updates.

      It was a pain in the butt to get the thing running on the Microsquirt because I could not get the ECU to see the Cherry hall effect sensor that I bought from DIYA....

      I prefer using a strap, so there is nothing protruding to catch on or damage another car in an incident.

      My 14 Passat APR 93 car exhibits the same behavior.
      Feels exactly like a harmonic vibration of some sort. Some might mistake it for a waste gate flutter.
      If I were writing the tune, I would dial...

      As a kid I loved watching this show (45 today).
      I knew then that the car surviving the jumps was not real. You could see the whole front clip bend up on the landing. Well that and since they did a...

      Towed the race car on an open trailer for years with a 95 van and the same trans. It had tall rear end gears, and I just pulled in 3. No issues. I did trans fluid every few years as insurance. The...

      It looks like you got some solid responses in the first batch of replies to this thread, and you plan to take that advice.

      Its the phones.
      Well not specifically the phones themselves, but the behavior people have with them.

      It seems like suddenly it is acceptable to take attention away from any and all other...

      My 5 speed car has an odd sounding "flutter" when you give it a high load in low rpm condition with the APR 93 tune.
      It sort of sounds like a low frequency harmonic in the exhaust and/or intake...

      I like this.
      Probably enough to overpower the FCA quality fear.

      Definitely unique.

      As you pointed out - there is direct competition that already has robust sales in the category.

      I agree that they need to focus on space, versatility and technology/connectivity, but disagree that...

      I asked a "product specialist" at the NAIAS industry day. They said around 5,000# - which seems to be about right for the class. If it were 7,000# it would pique my interest more, but not without a...
