Damn did you oink at em or something? That seems like you pissed them off or something. Too low is that a thing? What code is that I'm curious.

That sucks. Sounds like he went out of his way. I got a ticket over the weekend for a tinted front license plate cover. Cops by me have been cracking down on this. I knew I was playing with fire.

Wow that's ridiculous! I've been without a front plate for about 4 years and even when I have been pulled over they didn't even notice.

It was actually around Pasadena where I got pulled over. I was on my way to euro17 car show and was doing 80 in the carpool lane. I was a little distracted and didn't see the cop so I didn't slow down. He said he stopped me for speed but didnt write that down.

Try the opposite....freezing the insert ("shrinking" the metal a little) and sliding it into the caliper

Haha they in the freezer as we speak. I do this with failed hard drives all the time so I can spin it long enough to ghost a copy.

True but you'll need dry ice no? Lol
I wonder if the hardware fits currently. I would worry about that and the caliper housing cracking if it's not the right size lol.

Maybe 3 outta 4 drives. I've only done drives with less than 512gb.

Edit: I'd imagine it gets harder to use ghost to make a copy the bigger the drive is. As it takes longer to copy and thus gets hotter and might fail before it completes.
