Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I put HIDs in the headlights and fog lamps of my previous Grand Cherokee. Install was a cinch and the light output was nuts.

New truck? Plug-and-play HID kits don't play nice with the new CANBUS wiring, at least not easy enough to make me bother with it.

That whole CANBUS shit is really butt fucking the shit out of you huh?

I had HIDs before but one of the bulbs took a shit, I finally just got around to ordering new ones. I also have to buy new fog lights for the front, so once I do that I will probably get some more bulbs for them because I have extra ballasts.

Then again, I think they make something to trick the car to believe the headlights are still operating, I know they made them for the BMWs.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I dunno.....there seems to be a lot of varying information out there regarding HID kits for the new Jeep. Most say you require cash outlay to upgrade the system as those typical kits you find in the $200-300 range don't cut it.

Shit, I spent $45 on the kit a few years ago and $10 today on new bulbs. I am still contemplating doing the CBR, as much as Bob would hate me for it.

Only inconsiderate douchebags use HIDs. Even if you buy a car from the factory with HIDs, you're still an inconsiderate douchebag.

I remember last year, I think it was Audi who had a commercial that their new HID headlights were so bright thye killed zombies.

That's exactly what we need at night... a bunch of cars that have suns for headlights to blind oncoming traffic. Great fuckin idea. Douchebags.

Who was I arguing with about lever positioning?

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

A better question is WHY were you arguing about lever positioning. I've seen some pretty weird ones on some pretty fast guys bikes.

You know Kaz, for some reason I thought it was you I was arguing with

Someone had "stock" position on the levers and I suggested to move them down and someone told me that they were set for the tucked position. My response was "who is braking and downshifting tucked?"

Not me, I have my levers turned decidedly downwards. If fact, when I see people's levers angled up I tend to suggest them to lower a bit as I think it will make their wrists more comfortable.

I always remember Damon Bradshaw used to keep his levers angled way up, and on a dirt bike you are standing up and over the bars frequently putting even more strain on the wrists.

Mine are probably higher than some peoples because I don't sit up much at all on the brakes so mine are sort of flat. But still lower than stock I think. I used to have them way lower until i started popping less and that started when I started endurance racing I think

Yup, the sizes were off so prices were off. Good call. Would I need warmers for the Power One 2ct? Or could I get away with a few good warm-up laps?

You can get away with warm up laps on any tire.

The race tires you "need" warmers to more easily get them in their optimal range and limit tire degredation due to heat cycles. They simply don't like a lot of heat cycles and are harder to warm up but that is not to say you can't warm them up sans tire warmers. I do it all the time with my own takeoffs when I'm coaching (after in get the "good" out of the tire). They still can go redonkulous fast just not as fast new lol.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I have forgotten to turn warmers on before on the GPA's and gone out on cold tires and have had them good to go in one lap. Also, Dunlop claims their race tires aren't affected by heat cycles.
