I have a 5000 psi heated pressure washer at work that puts out steam if you hook up the tip. Itll degrease an entire engine bay in about 10 minutes. And then about 10 minutes from then its dry since the steam evaporates off faster that normal water.

What Grinds My Gears today is My brother Leaving the work Van (chevy 3500) with no gas in it, and I didnt realize it until i was out. Had to push it 2 blocks by myself...

Also, there is still a faint smell of pizza in my REX

What grinds my gears is... STANCE... seriously =, what are those guys thinking... I dont really every talk crap about what others do to their cars, however, stance has to be the most ridiculous thing in the car world aside from the rusty hood thing a few years back.

All these DAM posts/threads about BOV's and "should I buy it" one time posters we'll never see/hear from again!! It seems daily there's a new member asking about his stock wrx running like "insert problem here" because they have a BOV. I know technology has hindered people's ability to read...but DAM there's already a million posts about these 2 topics!

You want a used car? DON'T buy a used "tuned" wrx!

You want a cool noise when you shift? Go BOV yourself!

Thread asked, I answered 😜

Here's another one...

People who use image link sites like Photobucket to post pics on the forum. It's 2013 and everyone in the world has a "smart enough" phone to download the Auto Guide app and simply hit the upload pic button when posting. Having a new page open for every pic I click on when someone posts 5,6,7,10 pics about a mod install gets annoying.

Easiest way to get your pics ignored by this guy lol!

My weekly rant is now complete 😜

Whew! I thought I was doing it wrong until you clarified about the IMG tags...

I certainly don't want to be on Brandon's "list".

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Brandon is just ranting about a hyperlink to the album on Photobucket and not IMG links.

Who needs Brandon's opinion anyways!
Not like he is any help anyways =]

What really grinds my gears is when you r on an open road and you come up behind someone and there is another car way up there in the other lane, you go to pass the guy infront of you and the jerk FLOORS IT and makes it to where you can't get infront of him!!!!!

Makes me want to carry huge bolts in my car so when I pass them I can toss it out the window!
