  1. watch the ice ...

    well this past saturday was one of the few times that ice was almost a problem. coming up to a stop sign there was some ice. car starts to slide and there is a car infront of me. the abs does its job and I am able to steer the car away from the car at the stop sign. I did end up in the other lane but nothing happened. Luckly I was already slowing down.

    only recall one other time where ice was an issue. This was under a highway overpass at an off ramp. there was already a car that was ...

  2. 212k

    yup the mystique rolled over 212k on the way to work this morning. its really something else. Although it scared me last week as I started hearing what I can discribe as a knocking noise. turns out I believe its a lifter that is making noise until that engine is fully warmed up. either way what happens happens but after 9 years and ~130k miles I have driven the car I am attached to it.

  3. HIDs

    well I finally got my DDM Tuning HID 4500 K 9006 kit in yesterday. I was going to go for the $40 Raptor kit but they ran out. I could have waited but was getting impacient so I upgraded to the DDM brand.

    First impression on openinng the box was how small the ballasts are. But think that is in part to some of the parts being in the seperate smaller box. Either way that are slim and should fit just about anywhere. Install was easy, all the conenctors where one way so they can't ...

    not much new for the SVT and the SeVT-T. bother have been sitting for the last few months waiting for spring. Since I have suspended the insurance on them I can't even take them out if the weather is nice. About all I have done with the SVT is add air to the tires and keep the battery on float charge. Seems to be working well. I do need to stop down and check the SeVT-T over and make sure all is in order.

    The mystique so far has been a trooper yet again this winter. I have ordered ...

  5. more things to check/fix

    well I finally determined why the brake pedal on the mystique was like a brick in the morning in colder weather. the brake booster is going. brakes fine and holds vacuum as soon as the engine is running but looses the vacuum over night.

    Also in checking over the SVT earlier today I found that a mouse had been up under the hood liner. I openned the hood and some bits of stuff fell out. So I took the liner out to prevent that from happeneing again. I knew that there would be a ...
