Serious crackheads never brush their teeth, there's enough resin on a tooth to get a buzz if you don't make the mistake of brushing it away or eating or anything that might rub the resin off.

I've recently fallen in love with my rear diff. I know it is by far the smoothest ball diff in any touring car ever built. It's like an oval diff, but without the slippage. I'm sure I'll spin it so much before raceday that I'll flatten the diff balls.

I do sit and hold the car and work the suspension and inspect it when I'm hanging around watching TV in my work room. I've actually found some problems that needed fixing that way.

I do the same. Maybe, in my mind, I have hopes that the potential energy I put in the car will turn into extra Kinetic energy on race day!! LOL Like winding a spring I guess.

One thing I always do is hold my cars upside down, then right-side up, then in all directions and shake the crap out of it. You'd be amazed at how much dirt and crap is sitting around in there!
