report on the news now is that bbq brushes can have the bristles break off while cleaning and contaminate your food. to the point of being lodged in your gut and cause a trip to the hospital.
moral of the story? learn to use a fucking bbq brush properly.

Happened to a friend a couple of years ago. She had to have abdominal surgery, and had some real problems when the wire perforated her abdomen.

In Topic: Rivet Nuts (not pop rivets)

The Harbor Freight tool doesn't look like it would have enough leverage to handle stainless steel 1/4" rivnuts.  The tool that I use looks like this and has a compound leverage plus much longer handles:
It feels to me like it takes a good amount of leverage to set a large diameter 316 rivet nut properly.  Aluminum ones set much more easily.
I'd be curious to hear otherwise, I'm borrowing this tool and would buy my own if there was a cheap alternative.

I have to set some M8 rivet nuts so ordered this tool. Went to local Fastenal and they wanted $500 for it with 8mm mandrel. Found it online for $160.

APR stage 1 vs. Stock. 0-30 is .

Bye bye warranty.
Not always true! It can be removed.

Yo DaveK do you have the new car?

Yes I got the R!!

Not true on removal. VAG has programmed the ecu to flag any ecu modification, and that flag cannot be reversed or removed by removing the tune.

Google TD1 and Volkswagon or Audi: http://forums.vwvort...1-warranty-flag

I know of people who removed the tune before a dealer visit for warranty work, and found themselves without a warranty because of the TD1 flag.
