Sounds like a nice set up. If you want it checked out you can take it by Steve's Auto Clinic in North Hills ( nordhoff off the 405 ) . He will give it a through going over and let you know whats up.

His shop number is 818 891 6109

that is nice to hear.
I love this thing
I did find that the wheels studs were a bit loose
they seem to just keep going in. not sure how far to go into the hub with them
need to put some lock tight blue on there. Wouldnt this give me an inaccurate torque reading for the lug nuts if the studs are loose?
Any suggestions?
