    I'll put money on the fact that a majority of the masks you see walking around a store have no ratings at all let alone N95. N95 masks have been practically unobtanium for a month, so the people at the stores who are infected are still spreading through their bandanas, dust masks and beautician's masks if they cough or talk (which they probably aren't anyway) and leaving droplets behind on everything you buy. Plus, if you aren't using that N95 mask properly; following proper removal procedure, and disposing of it or disinfecting it after every use, you could catch it from your own mask. Improper removal procedure can render virus contaminated particles on your mask airborne, right in front of your face...

    Just follow the separation guidelines at a park or the beach and you'll be fine, good grief.
    Literally this. Like the woman at the cash register wearing the same gloves all day and reusing her mask everyday is probably causing more harm than good by not disposing of them properly. I'm really just starting to get tired of the lack of common sense and general stupidity of people. The amount of people who are apparently health and economic experts is mind blowing. Didn't realize John who barely made it through high school was such a master of economics and clearly knows what is best for the country and world, as says his facebook status

        whether youre wearing a N95 mask properly or have an old underwear wrapped over your mouth and nose, thats a LOT better at being a NFG frat boy spring breaking with some loosie goosie face to face. The point is that wearing something, is much better than wearing nothing. Lets not give the poor cashier a hard time

          ^^^not only that, but he object of the mask is to help keeping you from spreading to others. It's not going to stop you from getting infected, but as many people as it seems that show no symptoms, face coverings are not a bad idea IMO.

            You seem to be terrified of something that is probably less likely than getting killed in a car crash on the way to the beach, to the point that you're flat out insulting people for engaging in behaviors that are objectively not risky. You should stop watching the news, which is trying to terrify people because it's very, very good for ratings, and just follow the CDC guidelines; which do not advise you or anyone who is not in a high risk group to hole up at home and avoid outdoor activity. Outdoor activity is good for people's health, physical and mental. People locked inside, terrified, losing their jobs and savings due to the economic side of this disaster, will kill themselves in large numbers, it is very important for people to engage in activities that are good for their physical and mental health and raise morale. It is sensible that bars, night clubs, gyms, and other indoor recreations are closed, because it is far more likely that you'll catch it indoors where air is largely stagnant, temperatures and humidity are well suited for longevity of the virus, and people are more likely constantly contaminating frequently surfaces, but it is not logical to close beaches or even decently large parks, trapping people at home, many of who do not have private outdoor property.

              I was out and about today and smelled cigarette smoke. Turned around and a dude was exhaling about 8 yards away from me. Yeah, approx 24', and thought about you two squabbling in this thread. Both of you are right. As long as we all take appropriate action, no worries, but when you have that one person who doesn't show symptoms in a crowded room with no facial covering, sh!t is gonna spread. It's pretty common sense.

                          anyone have experience here with a T5 trans?

                          Some people swear by them, others say they will get shredded by torque.

                          I need a gearbox that can handle around 400 ft lbs

                          It's that or a ZF5

                                3rd gear is made out of glass. There are fixes, but there's a reason the t5 never came behind the 350tpi torque-monster. t56 is the way to go.
