Anyone recommend a good garage vacuum, one that mounts and doesn't take up a ton of space?

its very capable around a track imo, the power is enough to hang with or not lose too much ground against "muscle" cars...you gain the time in braking zones/corners .

bit different though, your car is something like 600 lbs lighter than the newest mustang

i like corvettes yeah

Wow that is solid for an is20. The mk7 is defintley pretty sweet. Once I stop spending money on the mk2 hopefully I can do a few things and make some more power.

That being said.


Im creating a restaraunt called "Dough."...

For $21.99 you can construct your own pizza ingredients at the table.


*arugula, tofu, tofurkey bacon and aioli (which is just mayo mixed with something else) is extra*


Will be opening up in boys town next week, please leave your hipster scarves and man buns at the door thank you.
Holy crap. Truest damned post on this forum.

Don't forget to add retro hiphop music in the background, dim lighting (those odd old-style bulbs where the filament is all curly-Q'd), and a 33/33/33 mix of stainless steel, cast iron pipe, and reclaimed wood. The male servers will all wear women's jeans, cuffed at the bottom, with handlebar mustaches. Female servers will all have tattoos but otherwise be normal looking.

Everyone will then declare the food is AH-MAAAAAAAAZING.

Damned straight.

I find the best tasting way is to make sure it can still crawl up onto your plate before you dig in.

Fastest time so far has been 11.598 @ 118.5mph...that's pretty sick for the stock turbo. It has some more left in it too if the 60' comes down, it was at 1.8 for that run.
11.6 with a 118 trap means that's a lot of 60'.

Ditch the slicks and it's a 12.5 car all day.

A cool vibe atmosphere does not automatically mean the food sucks. But it's usually a good indicator of someone "trying hard".

I've been in a lot of places where it was clear they were focused on atmosphere first, high food prices second, and food that actually tastes good like 25th.

I remember hitting up some sandwich place downtown for lunch. Advertised themselves as a sort of deli, and I was in the mood for a good deli sandwich.

They had all kinds of fucked up shit, and nothing normal. Who the fuck wants to eat Raspberry-Okra potato chips? I mean, da fuq? Oh that's right: hipsters, and young millennial college grads working their first sales job in the Loop pretending to be "fancy" and "cultured".

Is that Portillos any count? They are building one close to my house, and the last thing we need is more shitty restaurants.

Restaurants they have built semi-recently that didn't suck. (For context):

Cheddars
Primanti Bros
Jaggers

Primanti Bros is pretty good. I've been to the one here a few times. Nothing special tbh.

You guys probably have unicorn restaurants up there that are heavenly, we have very little around here that's not a super chain. So I ask again, scale of 1-10, how is Portillo's? Am I about to ride an orgasmo train or no?
