An “early adopter” friend of mine just got a new Rift S, and he let me borrow his Rift to see if I’m interested because he wants to sell it.

Last night I got the Rift set up with Project Cars and my Logitech G27 wheel & shifter, and it was flippin’ amazing. The added situational awareness and immersive feel is inestimable.

If you thought "electric power steering" feels mushy, just wait till you have the equivalent of electronic stability control for the rate of movement in your steering rack. On the one hand, if it makes lots of other people on the road safer...

I changed the oil in all 4 family vehicles today, plus air filters and tire rotations, in about five hours.

Yay, woo! now I can unbolt the manifold. I do this.

Next, I...

Just small drops on my garage floor, under the front driver side caliper, so most leakage must happen under pressure while driving. Ill have to look closer at it all this weekend. It’s probably a reasonable expectation that...
