Congradulations! Are you going to try and come by TMS with Ernest and I? We would love to have you. It looks like there is 39 Kappas coming (3 SKYs) yours could round it out to an even 40. PM Ernest and I to let us know if you are interested. :cheers:

On some cars, the rear tires rub against the wheel wells. The way to check this is to try and place your hand in the space between the front of the rear tire and the protrusion in the wheel well...most cannot fit even a finger in that space. Inspect the wheel wells where the protrusion is, to see if there is any evidence of rubbing wear on them. Also, some folks have said that there is a 'burning smell' (most likely burning rubber) if the tires are rubbing.
