      Sup guys

      Going riding on the quad tomorrow. This is how that's going so far...
      Go to start it and its dead. Can't find charger so I go buy one. Charge battery and it dies. Okay so I go to exchange the charger n buy a battery. Look at battery packaging and see it comes discharged. Now i keep the charger n buy battery. Come home n open battery to find that I have to fill it with provided acid first. Okay so fill per instructions.
      Next step..wait 30 min before charging then charge at 2A max.

      Wtf I'll be up all night with this..

          guy had a drive up lift, not a two post. so i got OCD and started cleaning the undercarriage. scraped about a pound of shit off of the diff trying to find the stamping on it, but couldnt find it. also cleaned the hell out of my trans to see where it was leaking from. then we went for a ride in his supercharged shelby cobra. in other words, i made great progress and had a great day, but did nothing on the RTABs :p

            You might want to wait more than 30 minutes... Most motorsports batteries take at least a six hour (if not longer) trickle charge before being ready. Don't skimp on the initial charge or you'll take away a good amount of life from the battery.

                Don't know if they will look here but can the guys at vintage European make exhaust piping?

                All the shops i called said they cant put a cat less exhaust on a car that had a cat.

                I called bs.

                All i want is pipes from headers to exhaust. Just a simple tube bend....

                  Removal or modification of emission equipment including the catalytic converter is illegal. A legit shop can build the pipe but can't install it.

                    The exhaust building master is taking a break right now. What is wrong with your cat?

                      Don't need it. It scratches on every little bump when I'm dropped so its basically got a couple holes. If it was clean I'd just empty out the emissions stuff and that would work.

                      Also looking for straight pipe sound. I can probably install if its stainless pipe.

                        I just fail to see why you would want to put a straight pipe on a 100% stock car. It's not a fucking race car...

                                Where are you getting $400 from? Shouldn't cost you more then $250, tops.
