    The Scarlett Thread, part Deux.... Wisco's project and maintenance thread

    Been traveling a lot for work and forgot to put Scarlett on the drip charger when overseas for 12 days... and she didn't start. Full overnight charge and we're all good again.

    Installed the basic Tire Rack 16 inch winter wheels with Michelin XIce tires. Today I braved the 45F temps for probably the last hand wash until next Spring. Drove our middle child to and from Minneapolis for a college visit and Scarlett was filthy from 400+ miles of snow/rain.

    I had originally planned to keep her as a weekend/fun car, but she is so much fun and in such good shape that she deserves "posh daily driver" status. Still loving the roar of the TSE3 exhaust when you push the RPM in 3rd or 4th gear!

    Pardon my ignorance. What's the yellow thing under the tire ? Looks too small for a tire bumper.

    It's a hose guide. So your water hose doesn't get jammed under the tire when walking around the car

    Battery is probably weak if it won't start after only 12 days.

    I would've said test it, but I realize the tests don't tell the whole story. They tested my battery and it tested fine. It's so weak, however, that if I leave the interior lights on for a few minutes, or even just the Xenons for a couple of minutes, my car won't start.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
