    Alright, I'll try to remember this to the best of my ability, guys please chime in.

    It started out as a complete 100% joke, after people on r3v started coming up with ridiculous names for groups of people that shared similar-featured cars. Stuff like "wagon mafia", "bronzit bangers", "alpine white power", etc.

    We were at Joey's one night during a typical PNW r3v e30 meeting, and decided to coin the term as a satire of these groups. It was me, Brad and Greg that night. A few gringo ISEbergs later, we were joking with the waitress that Greg looks a bit like Orlando Bloom (we had his username officially changed to Gregolas) and Brad is a dead ringer for Pharrell, and then someone threw me under the bus for looking like a Great Value Keanu Reeves, and the rest is history. So yes, it started as a few pumped up single alpha males in their 20s flirting at waitresses

    We started labeling all of our meets "Alpha Team" and most of the local area r3v enthusiasts piled on and it became an actual thing. We help each other out on our projects, get together socially, and many of us have become good friends. We still do Oktoberfest in Leavenworth every year, and we try to meet up together at most of the shows.

                      Actually, I need that shell. If it's rust free. Or at least close enough.

                            Guys I'm in need of some help, I'm trying to remove my rear left axel from the hub to get at my wheel bearing and have been unable to.



                            I took of the cv joint and have tried hitting that middle assembly with the triangle on it.



                            It absolutely will not budge, took a sledge to it, even after heating it up and applying penetrating fluid. Am I skipping a step or something??? Or do I just need more power?



                            Thanks guys, replies and advice very much appreciated.
