I agree that it looks better but at an extreme loss of functionality. I think I would have argued with Jason about that one. The truck worked and worked well at the race. We missed finishing by a total of 14 minutes with what 4 tire changes? With the way it is now, you would have been closer to 30 minutes too late.

I can also second the need to trim the studs down a bit or carry an electric impact. We weren't ready to change that first tire in the pits so we did it by hand. My forearms were burning after that from turning the lugnuts for so damned long.

Or Marn's holding out on us all... Maybe we need to go check out the porsche or more exotic car forums to see where else he's posting and what else he's driving that he hasn't told us about!


Maybe he's like this other douchy kid here in vegas that's always crying about being broke and having to work at pepboys and stuff yet posts pictures of him working on his truck in his garage at home where he still lives at his parents house.





And then people started pointing out the stuff in the picture that makes it look like their family is far from broke considering nobody I know has a hoist in their garage or even a garage big enough for a hoist. Oh, and ignore the lambo in a bubble in the background! LOL

Only $500 right with that $375K income! LOL I know it's gotta be hard to find that extra $500! LOL


BTW, Mine too!!!! I spent a whole whopping $300ish on it this month so it'll be paid in full once again for like the 80bajillionth month in a row. LOL

You sure? We were talking about putting a rear facing seat hanging off the rear bumper with harnesses to strap you on for tire changes and you could also have a helmet wired so you could tell us when people were coming up behind so we'd know to move over.

Try it with full gear and helmet on in the middle of a canyon on that 3rd lap with no food since dinner the night before! LOL

Don't forget he also gets "used" as the rear bumper since he is attached to it. Its like when your mom vacuumed under your feet while you sat on the couch, only this time it will be lift your legs this nerf is about to light you up. haha

If they got out of the way fast enough, this wouldn't be a problem. If not, I think I am just going to carry a stick so that if we did get nerfed I could shove the stick through the competitors radiator before they took me out. LOL

What happens if you're in a bind/emergency where you don't have the cash to cover it? Say for instance you're on a trip and your engine blows up in Montana or something?

I still don't see why the need to actually not have any credit card. Do you have zero self control when it comes to spending or something?

Hey, you ate a cookie or two in the pits. I saw you!

will a bandana wrapped around your face work?

Good luck getting to their radiator! LOL, not to mention most of the TT's and class 1 cars they're in the back.

I think that was out at the lake bed but maybe I'm wrong. Either way you're right, I had I think 2 cookies. It was only supposed to be a 3 hour tour!

I am not going to lie, I have a balance on my CC. It will be paid of in a few months. I always hit up the 0% offers at Sam's club too... then milk it out with minimum payment until it is about to run out then pay it off in full. Heck even our living room furniture is at 0% for another 3 years through Lazy Boy. We don't have much money but we have tons of credit and know how to use it to our advantage.


From my side, I say that you need a credit card. I would never rent a car, buy online, or anything like that with my check card. If something goes wrong, oh well I still have my money in my checking/savings account and I just file a complaint.
