    Goddamn that sucks the big one about VS. Seriously. Don't want to have to start using fluid man union for actual work Click here to enlarge

    Should I retire the VS stickers on my windows to the blacked out ones as a sign of solidarity?

    this. I've seen what a "brake fluid flush" and "brake track inspection" looks like from fluid. Reservoir topped off with new fluid, and given the "ok" to track on pads that are literally about to trip the sensor.

    I've only used fluid for switching between my summers and winters, no problems with that. Apprehensive to do anything more than that though.

    They just use the impact. Torque wrenches don't go THAT FAR out of spec, even stored improperly, beat on, etc. Impacting that $#@! is a good way to cross thread hubs as well

    And FWIW (Carlos) Bill Jacobs put my wheels on so tightly it took me 30 min beating a breaker bar with a lead hammer to get them off.

    VS did forget to tighten my right rear tie rod on a 4 wheel alignment, got into city and the car was going sideways as the rear camber was out 2 inches...brought to a indy on elston and he eyeballed it and put best he could to spec then drove back to VS and they redid the alignment, that was the only issue I had, but it was a doozer..chris is a nice kid...and the guys too...that is a damn shame, but who was bankin this deal, mom and pop?
