    Be careful what you say on Mother's Day, with all the imbibing you could " Rum off at the mouth?!

    Heh, you need a break from all the race car rebuilding, so enjoy the day, the rum, and the relaxation!

    Damn. Been there. No, you cant buy one separate, at least I could not find one. Took about 3 hours to find. The up side, the shop was clean when I finally found the little bugger.
    Do you have an old trans laying around which may have on on it?

    Oh wow! @Mad Hatter your guys work fast!

    Those stupid clips are so annoying. Might be good to order a couple and keep some spares.

    He lugged them all the way down from Brighton to Pueblo, so they really were lug nuts - helped me win my rather small Class , but ended up 2nd overall so not too bad? His wife and mine both think we are nuts anyway, so who are we to argue? I will admit the guy seems to have a spare of everything , so no surprise he came up with the crazy pin for Mad? Glad Mad found it there since mail to Chile is a bit on the pricey side! Best of luck Matt, we are all rooting for you!
