I decided to cut residential carpet for over the floor mat protectors and my battery went dead! This time, Walmart tested it for 40 minutes and the result was; give him a new battery!

Changed my ebrake pads today and I adjusted them as low as they can go and it feels like the back wheels are dragging! They can't be adjusted any tighter. FML! Before this I didn't have any pads in there and everything was fine. but I had to reinstall them to pass MA inspection. Any suggestions?

Haha they engage the parking brake and put it in drive. It has to withstand 1,300 RPMs and then it passes as part of the safety inspection. They failed me for not having a functioning ebrake. My emissions passed with flying colors. Today I passed the safety test but the damn things seem to be holding my Hemi back and dragging the wheels!

Just popped in a set of 7w CREE LED reverse bulbs. Can't wait 'til dark so I can see what all the fuss is about.
