    Ravenol 5w30 REP vs VMS vs VMP

    I am very happy with the REP in my EcoBoost (no, no UOAs for those asking for the cliched 'proof', sorry). Not sure how it would perform in your Merc, but certainly you could pick worse oils to use. <img src="/forums/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="wink" title="wink" height="15" width="15" /> <img...

    Installing your own winter tires

    I switch between my 3 sets of tires, back and forth, all by myself, all the while looking over my shoulder for the HOA's draconian KGB agents who will fine you insane amounts if they catch you with your car on a jack/jack stands, YES, even in your own driveway. This leaves me very little time...

    Frequent Redline

    I take mine up to just below the rev limiter every time it is warm enough to do such, a couple of times a day. <img src="/forums/graemlins/19.gif" alt="drive" title="drive" height="30" width="40" /> This engine does not eat a single drop of oil whatsoever, but yeah, it only has ~22K miles on it...

    Altimax Arctic 12?

    I have these in 195/60-15 on my winter/'rally working' setup wheels (Method MR501VTs in 15x7). Ironically, I have not had them on actual snow/ice/slush yet, since I have been trying to save them for the summer gravel stage driving use when working those ARA rallies. But I can say that they are...

    Ryobi Undercariage Cleaner

    IF each one of those jets is equal pressure to the single wand, this would be great for my uses (to blast off MUCH mud from working mucky/sloppy ARA rallies, and yes, of course our infamous PennDOT salt soup). <img src="/forums/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="wink" title="wink" height="15" width="15" />

    Do you have tpms on your winter wheels?

    I have two other sets of wheels for this car (winter/rally working, and pure summer/MAX performance aftermarket) besides the Michelin AS/3 equipped factory ones, and neither have TPMS in them. I still want to get Forscan for this car so that I can totally disable that system, and NEVER have to...

    Ford coolant tank shenanigans...

    Are Some of You OCI Fanatics?

    I did not even wait for 3K miles on some of the OCIs on this car (and I now exclusively use only PAO/POE base stock oils no less!), which <span style="font-weight: bold">YES</span>, is a waste, even given a turbo DI engine which is short tripped often. This current fill of Ravenol REP 5W-30 I...

    What's a good all-around wax that's durable?

    ^^^^Probably not as much of a 'pop' gloss with the 845 as some of the very co$tly 'boutique' waxes, or coatings/sealants, but I really like it's gloss, especially for as LONG as it beads water, and rejects filth when washed. <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile"...
