That's a high speed battery clamp. Looks gooooda!


If it eats gas and blood type is measured by weight, it's good by me!

It's that time of the year again. Autocross time.

Took her into bustas shop for some light maintenance.
-Oil change
-Top off fluids
-Air cleaner cleaning
-Race wheels swap

Then as I was under the car I noticed something. The spring cup on the left lower control arm split again. Ugh.

ACF15E04-FFB8-494F-938C-739A1A88FEAA_zps

Gave it a quick patch job for autocross but I will have to beef it up later.

Glass overflow bottles shattering isn't unheard of. I'm surprised you pass tech with it. I've been using a plastic bottle for over a year because I'm too cheap to spend $60 on something nice, and too lazy to make something.
