    Yes the seat belt is absolutely being worn. Haven't turned the DCS off.

    Whenever we have the next mafia meet I'm happy to sit in the passenger seat for some rides. Just bring an extra pair of underwear.

    One of the few mods I did end up doing first was replacing the rear license plate holder. Ended up going with the same carbon fiber design that was originally on the car.

    Nope! That is the second time in three years they have had these "1000 year floods." It's heartbreaking, but you think they would not rebuild after this. I would not want to own a house or building at the bottom of a river valley. It's like building a house on a flood plain and wonder why your house is destroyed every season.

    Exactly why I’d never own property in certain parts of California where there’s a wildfire every year...

    Mileage 63144 - Changed the transmission fluid from Redline MTL to Redline ATF D4.

    I was noticing that the Redline MTL fluid is too heavy for this transmission. When I originally changed the fluid and drove it home, it was great and I noticed right away that the shifting was so much smoother than before. Might have been a false positive since the fluid in the trans was original and needed to be changed anyway. After a few days I noticed only from cold starts (oil temps were ambient temperature or close) second gear didn't like the new fluid. Shifting 1-2 would have the second gear synchro make a "buzz" sound before going into gear. It would only do this once, and then everything was fine throughout the entire drive, and only on cold starts did this happen.

    I did some research and a lot of guys on 1addicts run D4 ATF fluid since it is a bit thinner and closer to spec. I also emailed Redline, and was originally told to run D6 ATF, but I decided against that since their own website said to use D4 ATF fluid.

    I haven't been able to drive from a cold start, but I'm almost certain this was the issue since the car never had issues before swapping the fluid.

    FWIW I run Redline MTL in the ZHP with zero issues.
