Skip the 2008 model years. They are the same under the body as the gen 1 models. They only updated the body panels.

2009 is when you get the full mechanical/drivetrain upgrade, from what I remember
Now this is something I didn't know! Appears your memory is correct though.

Dogan's car replacement quest, or, talk me out of a hybrid Escape.

Howdy all. Just rolled over a quarter million miles in the 2005 Forester I got in large part thanks to comments on azrael99's "Looking for a compact SUV or AWD vehicle" thread, and I think it's time to retire it. AWD has been nice especially in the rare snow but realistically I'm chasing fuel econom...

Oh wow, it's been a minute since I posted here. Replaying FO4, with mods this time. It's just so much nicer when it looks like The War was 200 years ago and not last week. Also deliberately didn't do anything Minuteman related cause I don't want to deal with Preston. May beat the game aligning with ...

Re: Stranger Things 1 and 2

The MP5 PDW version did not come out until the 90s 1991, to be specific. But to be fair, in keeping with the "nearly unlimited resources under the umbrella of the DOE and powerful enough to literally open a portal to another dimension" theme of Hawkins Lab, is it unreasonable that they may have dec...

I too have long been a subscriber, and I support the channel through Patreon as well. It's a quality channel that I'd love to see picked up by a network like Discovery.

Re: All purpose NFA questions thread

Would a tennis racket, affixed to a AR pistol, be considered a brace due to not being designed to shoulder, or a stock due to "redesign" reasons? In all honesty I'll probably just wrap the buffer tube to look like a racket handle for the sake of the joke, but still. Inquiring minds want ZS's educate...

Maybe I should use something that has magnification built in instead of having to mount two separate things? Honestly that decision comes down to what you need and what you're comfortable with. The short list: * Magnifiers as a rule have lower quality glass than scope or RDS, not sure if this is ac...

For what it is worth, Green Tip is supposed to be able to punch through UHMWPE armor pretty well if it has enough velocity. Also, hasn't UHMWPE been phased out by all but the sketchiest of dealers/manufacturers due to how quickly it breaks down under heat and humidity (as in you wear it and it beco...

I really wish the 17 M2 would have been successful. A guy at my gun range let me borrow a contender barrel back when it was the new hotness. Stupid accurate. No recoil. Great for small game. I've always wanted a Mk1 Target in 17M2 because why not. Something about bottle necked cartridges in handgun...
