(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY ON DETROIT MUSCLE WE'VE GOT TO PLANT OVER 550 HEMI POWERED PONIES TO THE PAVEMENT IN OUR ULTRAVIOLET CHALLENGER. SO WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE SOME BIG TUBS TO CONTAIN SOME SERIOUS RUBBER.

PLUS WE'LL PULL BACK THE CURTAIN ON THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND ONE OF THE INDUSTRY'S MOST IMPORTANT CHEMICALS.

(TOMMY)>> HEY GUYS, WE'RE BACK ON OUR '70 CHALLENGER HEMI CAR, PROJECT ULTRAVIOLET. NOW WE'RE GETTING CLOSE TO THE END OF THE ROAD AS FAR AS SHEET METAL FABRICATION, BUT THERE IS ONE MORE TASK THAT WE'RE GONNA DO AND THAT IS WIDEN OUT THOSE WHEEL TUBS. THE REASON WE'VE GOTTA DO THAT, WELL THE TIRES THAT WE'RE PLANNING TO PUT UNDER THIS THING ARE CONSIDERABLY BIGGER THAN STOCK. LET ME SHOW YOU. NOW THESE ARE SET OF NITTO INVOS AND WITH ABOUT 13 INCHES OF RUBBER TOUCHING THE GROUND, WELL IT SHOULD GIVE US PLENTY OF TRACTION. AND THESE ARE CONSIDERED TO BE A HIGH PERFORMANCE TIRE, BUT THEY HAVE BEEN ENGINEERED TO CUT DOWN ON THE ROAD NOISE. WHAT THAT MEANS, WHEN YOU STRETCH THIS DUDE OUT ON THE INTERSTATE, IT'S STILL GONNA BE A NICE,

COMFORTABLE RIDE.

(JOE)>> IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM FIT UNDER THE DODGE OUT BACK WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO FAB UP OUR OWN VERSION OF MINI TUBS.

WE'LL START WITH THESE FACTORY REPLACEMENT INNER WHEEL HOUSINGS FROM CLASSIC INDUSTRIES AND USE THEM IN CONJUNCTION WITH WHAT'S ALREADY UNDER THE CAR. THE RESULT WILL BE PLENTY OF CLEARANCE FOR THE NEW MEATS AND A MODIFICATION THAT LOOKS FAIRLY NEAT.

(TOMMY)>> SO OUR PLAN IS TO CUT OUT SOME OF THIS ORIGINAL TUB. WE'RE GONNA SLICE IT SOMEWHERE RIGHT THROUGH HERE AND THEN COME SLICE IT UNDER HERE AS WELL. THAT WAY WHEN WE INSTALL THAT NEW TUB, WE CAN SLIDE IT IN CLOSE TO THAT INNER RAIL, GET US THAT CLEARANCE THAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR.

(JOE)>> OF COURSE THAT REVOLVES AROUND THE SIZE OF THE WHEELS, TIRE, AND THE OFFSET OF THE WHEELS. OUR CHALLENGER WHEELS AREN'T IN YET BUT WE CAN KEEP TRUCKIN' BECAUSE WE ALREADY KNOW THEIR OFFSET. NOW THAT TERM OFFSET CAN BE A LITTLE CONFUSING AT FIRST BUT HERE'S SOMETHING TO CLEAR THE AIR A LITTLE BIT. ONE THING TO KNOW IS THAT A MANUFACTURER MIGHT SAY A WHEEL IS 12 INCHES WIDE, BUT THAT MEASUREMENT IS FROM THE INSIDE OF THE LIPS.

SO FROM OUTSIDE TO OUTSIDE IT'LL BE CLOSER TO 13 INCHES. THEN YOU HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE OFFSET. IF IT MOUNTS IN LINE WITH THE CENTER LINE IT'S ZERO OFFSET. TO MOVE THE WHEEL OUTWARD YOU WANT NEGATIVE OFFSET. TO MOVE IT INWARD POSITIVE OFFSET. YOU WON'T FIND A BIGGER EXAMPLE OF NEGATIVE OFFSET THAN THIS MONSTER TRUCK WHEEL, ABOUT TWO FEET OF IT. ON THE OTHER HAND THIS WHEEL WE GOT FROM THE STORAGE ROOM HAS POSITIVE OFFSET, WHICH CREATES BACK SPACE. BACK SPACE IS THE DISTANCE FROM THE BACK LIP TO THE MOUNTING FLANGE.

(TOMMY)>> THE GUYS AT SCHWARTZ PERFORMANCE HAVE ALREADY DONE SOME OF THE HOMEWORK FOR US. I'LL TELL YOU, THAT'S ONE NICE THING ABOUT HAVING A

PREFABBED CHASSIS. THEY TOLD US THAT A 19 BY 12 INCH WHEEL WITH A SIX AND HALF INCH BACK SPACING WILL FIT UNDER HERE WITH A SLIGHT MINI TUB. SO I HAD TO DO THAT MEASUREMENT JUST TO SEE HOW SLIGHT THAT MINI TUB WAS REALLY GONNA BE. SO WHEN WE MOVED THIS CLOSER TO THAT, THAT SHOULD GIVE US ABOUT AN INCH OF CLEARANCE.

(JOE)>> LIKE WE SAID, THE PLAN HERE IS TO USE AS MUCH METAL AS WE CAN FROM BOTH THE STOCK TUBS AND THE REPLACEMENT TUBS TO WIDEN THE COMPARTMENT OUT TO THE FRAME RAIL. THE STOCK ONES ARE SPOT WELDED IN. SO A FEW PILOT HOLES WILL GET US STARTED ON DRILLING THOSE OUT. THEN WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE SPOT WELD CUTTER AND BEGIN DETACHING IT FROM THE CAR. AFTER THAT AN AIR HAMMER IS THE TOOL OF CHOICE FOR

REMOVING THE METAL. THEN WE CAN GRAB THE BODY SAW AND CUT ALONG THE LINE THAT WE DREW EARLIER. THERE'S A BRACE BEHIND PART OF THE TUB WHERE IT CONNECTS TO WHAT WOULD BE THE BACK SEAT PACKAGE TRAY.

WE DON'T WANT TO CUT THAT. SO WE'LL BUZZ AROUND IT.

THEN BE SURE TO HIT YOUR CAMERA MAN WITH A PIECE OF METAL. OH, SORRY KEN!

(TOMMY)>> AFTER YOU GET HIM A BANDAGE, CONTINUE CUTTING AROUND THE BRACE TO FREE UP THE INNER PART OF THE TUB.

A CUTTING WHEEL CAN MAKE A SHALLOW ENOUGH CUT TO LET YOU STAY OUT OF THE BRACE. LOOKS LIKE WE NEED THE AIR HAMMER AGAIN.

WE'RE READY TO START TRIMMING ON THE LIP TO INSTALL THAT WIDER TUB. WE'RE GONNA MOVE THIS IN ABOUT AN INCH AND A HALF OR SO.

NOW WE ARE GONNA HAVE TO CUT INTO THAT SUBRAIL JUST A BIT. SO WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE COME BACK AND WELD THAT TRUNK FLOOR TO THE SIDE OF THAT RAIL CAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO COMPROMISE ANY OF THE STRUCTURE THAT THIS CAR'S GOT BUILT INTO IT.

(JOE)>> THIS FRAME RAIL ANGLES OUTWARD AS IT EXTENDS TOWARDS THE REAR. SO THE CUT WE'RE MAKING WON'T FOLLOW THE SAME LINE. [ saw buzzing ]

(ANNOUNCER)>> STILL AHEAD, IT'S IN WITH THE NEW AS WE GRAFT IN THE WIDENED TUBS FOR THE CHALLENGER. LEARN HOW A PRODUCT YOU USE ALL THE TIME WAS

BROUGHT ABOUT, AND THEN WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR IGNITION SETUP.

(JOE)>> WHEN WE LEFT YOU WE HAD JUST CUT OFF THE LIP THAT WE'LL USE TO ATTACH THE NEW TUB ON OUR CHALLENGER.

BUT BEFORE WE CAN DO THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THIS SECTION OF THE FLOOR IS STILL WELL ATTACHED TO THE CAR. SO WE'LL BURN IT DOWN TO THE FRAME RAIL FOR GOOD MEASURE. A LITTLE CLEAN UP WORK AND SHE'S GOOD TO GO.

(TOMMY)>> WELL WE'RE GETTING CLOSE TO WELDING IN OUR TUB BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING TO ATTACH IT TO. SO I'M GONNA USE THIS OLD PIECE THAT I REMOVED, TRIM IT BACK A LITTLE BIT SO THAT I CAN USE THE TAB BACK ON THE CAR. THAT WAY WE CAN KINDA RECYCLE, AND I DON'T HAVE TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE.

WELL I GOT BOTH OF MY PIECES ALL GROUND DOWN AND DRESSED UP. I WENT AHEAD AND PUT ON SOME WELDING PAPER TO KEEP FROM BURNING UP OR MELTING ANY OF THOSE PRETTY PARTS. AND WHAT MY PLAN IS IS TO LAY THIS THING INTO HERE, USE A WELDER, SEW IT BACK TOGETHER. THE NICE THING ABOUT DOING IT THIS WAY, WHENEVER I DRILL IN A FEW HOLES INTO THAT TUB. I CAN SPOT WELD THEM BACK AND IT'LL LOOK VERY SIMILAR TO STOCK.

WE'VE GOT A GAP TO FILL BETWEEN THE TWO PIECES, BUT A SMALL PIECE OF STEEL INSERTED BETWEEN THEM WILL DO THE JOB NICELY. WITH THE STRIPS TACKED IN, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND WELD THEM SOLID ALL THE WAY ACROSS. THEN CLEAN EVERYTHING UP WITH A LITTLE BIT OF GRINDING.

ALRIGHT GUYS, IT'S TIME FOR SOME MORE SPOT WELD DRILLING. SO YOU'RE PROBABLY PRETTY EXCITED. WELL MAYBE NOT SO MUCH. WHAT WE'VE GOT TO DO IS REMOVE THIS SMALL BRACKET BECAUSE IT'S IN THE WAY OF THAT WHEEL TUB, BUT YOU WANT TO SAVE IT BECAUSE YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO REATTACH IT TO MAKE SURE THOSE HINGES WORK PROPERLY.

OKAY, NOW THE NEXT THING WE NEED TO DO IS CUT THIS LIP OFF. NOW ORIGINALLY THE TWO TUBS SPOT WELDED TOGETHER RIGHT HERE AT THIS LIP. BUT IT'S KINDA IN THE WAY FOR WHAT WE'RE DOING. SO IT'S TIME TO MAKE SOME RACKET.

WELL LET'S SEE HOW CLOSE WE REALLY ARE? A LITTLE CLAMP HERE. WELL THIS THING FITS NICE, WE JUST HAVE TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF TRIMMING HERE ON THIS FRONT EDGE AND BACK HERE ON THE KINDA THE DOG LEG IF YOU WILL. BUT THE LIP'S A LITTLE BIT EXCESSIVE. SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO TRIM IT BACK BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT THAT MUCH HANGING OFF. [ saw buzzing ]

(JOE)>> FOR THE SPOT WELDS THAT WE'LL BE USING TO HOLD THE TUB ON, A HOLE PUNCH IS SUPER HANDY TO GET THE PIECE READY FOR INSTALLATION.

A FEW KLINKOS ARE ALSO A GREAT WAY TO HOLD THE TUB IN PLACE UNTIL WE GET IT PERMANENTLY ATTACHED.

OH AND BE SURE TO USE A BODY HAMMER TO CLOSE THAT GAP BETWEEN THE PIECES.

(TOMMY)>> ONE LAST THING THAT WE NEED TO DO IS

REATTACH THIS BRACKET THAT WE REMOVED FROM THE TRUNK HINGE THAT ATTACHES IT TO THE WHEEL TUB. A FEW MARKS WILL SHOW WHERE THE BRACE'S FOOT PRINT IS ON TOP OF THE NEW TUB. THEN WE'LL KNOCK OFF THE PAINT IN PREPARATION FOR WELDING. SOME HOLES FOR SOME SPOT WELDS AND A COUPLE OF CLAMPS AND THEN WE CAN WELD IT DOWN. [ welder crackling ]

(JOE)>> SIDE BY SIDE, WELL YOU CAN SEE THAT NEW TUBS ADD JUST ENOUGH WIDTH TO LET THE WHEELS WORK, AND IT WILL LOOK A LOT CLOSER TO FACTORY THAN A SET

OF FABRICATED ONES.

(TOMMY)>> WELL THAT PRETTY MUCH DOES IT FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE BUT I STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF WORK TO DO. I'VE GOT TO TACKLE THE DRIVER'S SIDE. NOW HAVING THOSE ORIGINAL STYLE REPLACEMENT TUBS SURE DID SAVE ME A BOAT LOAD OF TIME BECAUSE OTHERWISE, I'D BE MAKING THEM THINGS OUT OF FLAT STOCK.

(ANNOUNCER)>> UP NEXT, PUT ON YOUR LAB COAT, WE'RE GONNA DO SOME SCIENCE!

(JOE)>> IN 1953 PROFESSOR VERNON KREIBLE DEVELOPED A REVOLUTIONARY ANAEROBIC ADHESIVE COMPRISED OF LIQUID RESINS THAT CURE TO A DURABLE SOLID WHEN EXPOSED TO METAL IONS IN THE ABSENCE OF AIR. IT BECAME KNOWN AS LOCTITE THREAD LOCKER, AND IT CHANGED THE WAY CARS WERE BUILT AND REPAIRED. IT WAS JUST THE FIRST OF MORE THAN 1,000 LOCTITE FORMULAS TO COME, FORMULAS NOW USED FOR BONDING,

SEALING, AND COATING FOR INDUSTRIES AND CONSUMERS ALIKE. IN 1997 LOCTITE WAS ACQUIRED BY HENKEL, A GERMAN FORTUNE 500 COMPANY WITH THREE GLOBAL BUSINESS UNITS, LAUNDRY AND HOME CARE, BEAUTY CARE, AND ADHESIVE TECHNOLOGY. THIS IS HENKEL'S NORTH AMERICAN HEADQUARTERS,

ALSO HOME TO SOME INTENSIVE LOCTITE R&D.

(KEN)>> WE HAVE ALL THE TECHNICAL DATA TO SUPPORT OUR CLAIMS ON PERFORMANCE, ON STRENGTH, ON HEAT RESISTANCE. WE DO THOSE TESTS HERE SO THE CUSTOMER CAN BUY WORRY FREE, BASICALLY.

(JOE)>> THIS IS ONE OF A COUPLE OF DOZEN

LABORATORIES WHERE EVEN FOR VISITORS SAFETY GLASSES AND LAB COATS ARE A REQUIRED ATTIRE. IT'S ALSO A PLACE WHERE FORMULAS FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS AND YOUR OWN HOME SHOP ARE TESTED. OH, THE YELLOW LIGHTS, WELL THEY EFFECT THE CURING PROCESS OF LOCTITE.

THEY EVEN USE BLUE LIGHTS FOR CERTAIN CONTROLLED CURING TESTS.

MOSTLY THOUGH THEY USE THE BRAIN POWER OF TOP SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, ALONG WITH ADVANCED HIGH TECH HARDWARE. IN ONE LAB YOU MIGHT FIND DESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF A MEDICAL ADHESIVE TO ANALYZE ITS DURABILITY.

(JIM)>> WE CAN ALSO INTRODUCE COLD TEMPERATURES, HOT TEMPERATURES, AND HUMIDITY TO STRESS THE BOND JOINT EVEN MORE.

(JOE)>> IN ANOTHER LAB YOU'LL SEE COMPUTER CONTROLLED TRANSDUCERS TESTING DIFFERENT THREAD LOCKERS ON METAL USE BY INDUSTRIAL CUSTOMERS.

(JULIE)>> IT'S TAKING THOUSANDS OF DATA POINTS PER SECOND.

(JOE)>> ALL ENGINEERS AND TECHNICIANS USE CUTTING

EDGE EQUIPMENT, BUT JULIE SENGSTACKEN'S GEAR JUST MIGHT BE THE MOST FUN. ( )>> LET'S BREAK SOME STUFF. THIS IS MY IMPACT TESTER. I USE IT TO TEST THE IMPACT RESISTANCE OF

ADHESIVES ON DIFFERENT SUBSTRAIGHTS AND DIFFERENT CONDITIONS.

(JOE)>> TODAY IT WAS DIFFERENT METAL STRIPS BONDED BY SUPER GLUE, EPOXY, AND SILICONE.

(JULIE)>> THIS IS THE EPOXY, WHICH WAS THE STRONGEST OF THE GROUP AND TOUGHEST, AND IT TOOK THE LONGEST TIME TO NOT FAIL.

(KEN)>> WE PROBABLY HAVE OVER 300 R&D PEOPLE TODAY, NOW, IN THE LABS LOOKING AT WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS NEED BASED ON THE MARKET NEEDS AND WHAT THE CUSTOMERS TELL US, AND THAT'S HOW WE COME UP THE IDEAS TO MAKE NEW PRODUCT.

(JOE)>> PRODUCTS USED FOR VEHICLE MANUFACTURING LIKE ADHESIVES THROUGHOUT THE INTERIOR, SIDE MOLDINGS, AND EVEN THE COMPUTER, CEILING PRODUCTS, PLUS COUNTLESS LOCTITE PRODUCTS UNDER THE HOOD.

(CHERYL)>> WE CAN ACTUALLY TAKE THAT PRODUCT FROM THE PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT AND MOVE IT OVER TO THE AFTERMARKET ENVIRONMENT. PUT IT IN SMALLER PACKAGING AND SELL IT TO

CUSTOMERS SO THEY CAN ACTUALLY USE THE SAME

PRODUCT THAT WAS USED TO BUILD THEIR VEHICLE.

(JOE)>> THE PAYOFF OF RELENTLESS R&D WORK IS NEW AND BETTER LOCTITE PRODUCTS, LIKE ADHESIVES THAT MAY REVOLUTIONIZE VEHICLE MANUFACTURING IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

(DARRYL)>> THEY'RE LOOKING TO REDUCE WELDS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE POST PROCESSING OF A WELDED PIECE. SO ADHESIVES OFFER A NICE ADVANTAGE IN THAT ONCE YOU BOND IT TOGETHER AND THE ADHESIVE HAS REACHED ITS FULL STRENGTH, YOU CERTAINLY DON'T NEED TO CLEAN IT, YOU DON'T NEED TO GRIND IT, YOU DON'T

NEED TO POLISH IT. AND YOU CAN PAINT OVER IT.

(JOE)>> YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SCIENTIST TO REALIZE THE POSSIBILITIES UNFOLDING.

FOUR TOP TIER OE'S, FOR YOUR HOME, YOUR SHOP, AND WAY BEYOND.

(KEN)>> SO WE EFFECTIVELY HAVE A BIT OF A CRADLE TO GRAVE APPROACH FROM WHEN YOU'RE DESIGNING AND MANUFACTURING, USING LOCTITE IN THE ASSEMBLY METHOD, TO HOW YOU REPAIR AND FIX IT AT HOME OR IN THE GARAGE, IT'S ONE COMPLETE PACKAGE STORY.

(ANNOUNCER)>> AFTER THE BREAK WE'RE GONNA MODERNIZE YOUR DISTRIBUTOR, STICK AROUND.

(TOMMY)>> WE ALL KNOW RIDING AROUND IN THOSE OLDER CARS FEELS WAY COOL, BUT WE ALSO KNOW THAT

THEY'RE NOT REALLY KNOWN FOR THEIR RELIABILITY, ESPECIALLY IF THEY HAVE A POINT SETUP IN THEM. IN A POINTS IGNITION, THE TIMING OF THE SPARK IS DICTATED BY THE OPENING AND THE CLOSING OF THE POINTS, WHICH IS CONTROLLED BY A LOBE SHAFT THAT SPINS WITH THE CAM. WEAR ON THE POINTS CAN ESPECIALLY BECOME A PROBLEM ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS OLD IRON DISTRIBUTOR, WHICH HAS BEEN AROUND FOR OVER 50 YEARS. WE'RE GONNA COMPLETELY ELIMINATE THOSE

PROBLEMS WITH THIS IGNITOR ELECTRONIC IGNITION FROM PERTRONIX. WITH AN ELECTRONIC IGNITION, THE TIMING OF THE SPARK IS CONTROLLED BY A SENSOR THAT READS THE GAPS IN A MAGNET SLEEVE, WHICH IS ALSO SPUN BY THE CAM SHAFT. WITH THAT TECHNOLOGY, THIS IGNITOR SYSTEM CAN BRING

EVEN THAT TIRED OLD DISTRIBUTOR BACK TO LIFE. WITH THE CAP AND ROTOR OUT OF THE WAY, LET'S WORK ON GETTING THIS THING APART. THE POINTS AND CONDENSER BOTH COME OUT AS AN ASSEMBLY. WE'LL ALSO REMOVE THE GROUND STRAP SINCE THE NEW UNIT'S GROUND IS BUILT IN. WE'LL HIT IT WITH SOME BRAKE CLEANER TO SPIFF IT UP JUST A BIT AND REMOVE ABOUT 60 YEARS WORTH OF SCHMUTZ. THEN THE PERTRONIX UNIT CAN BE INSERTED INTO PLACE AND ATTACHED USING THE ORIGINAL SCREWS. THEN THE MAGNETIC SLEEVE, WHICH SENDS THE FIRING SIGNAL TO THE MODULE, IS PLACED ONTO THE SHAFT. WITH A NEW GROMMET IN PLACE WE CAN FEED THE WIRES DOWN THROUGH THE HOUSING. TO WIRE THIS THING UP IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE. RED GOES TO THE POSITIVE SIDE OF THE COIL, BLACK

GOES TO THE NEGATIVE SIDE, IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

(JOE)>> HERE'S ONE OF THOSE GOTTA HAVE IT LITTLE TOOLS IN CASE YOU WANT TO WORK ON THE VALVETRAIN OF YOUR LS ENGINE. IT'S A BUDGET FRIENDLY TRICK FLOW VALVE SPRING COMPRESSOR THAT LETS YOU REMOVE SPRINGS FROM AN ENGINE THAT'S EVEN INSTALLED IN THE CAR. AFTER REMOVING ROCKER ARMS, IT MOUNTS IN THEIR BOLT HOLES WITH SUPPLIED HARDWARE FOR EASY, EFFICIENT OPERATION. IT'LL MAKE CHANGES AT THE RACE TRACK A WHOLE LOT QUICKER, AND THE PRICE IS ABOUT $80 BUCKS.

(TOMMY)>> IF YOU LIKE THE ADVANTAGES OF RUNNING E-85 BUT DON'T WANT TO WORRY ABOUT THE CORROSIVE PROPERTIES OF ETHANOL, WELL HOLLEY'S ULTRA HP E-85 IS MADE FOR YOU.

THIS 750 CFM CARB IS 97 PERCENT ALUMINUM, USES E-85 SPECIFIC BILLET METERING BLOCKS AND MECHANICAL SECONDARIES. YOU GET 20 PERCENT MORE FUEL BOWL CAPACITY AND 38 PERCENT LESS WEIGHT. IT'S GOT A TON OF OTHER NEW FEATURES AND A PRICE TAG OF JUST UNDER $800 BUCKS.

(JOE)>> WELL FINALLY A NEW LITTLE DISTRIBUTOR GEAR THAT OFFERS SOME BIG ADVANTAGES IN TERMS OF LONG LIFE AND WEAR. IT'S COMP CAM'S MELONIZED DISTRIBUTOR GEAR THAT'S COMPATIBLE WITH ANY STEEL, CAST, OR DUCTILE IRON CAM SHAFT. THAT'S TO COMP'S IN HOUSE NITRITING PROCESS THE MELONIZED GEAR HAS GREATER WEAR RESISTANCE, BETTER

TIMING ACCURACY, AND HIGHER STRENGTH THAN OTHER OPTIONS. PLUS THANKS TO HIGHER PRECINIGEN THERE'S LESS CHANCE OF SPARK CHATTER THAN WITH A BRONZE GEAR. WELL TIME TO GET OUR REARS IN GEAR AND GET OUT OF HERE. WE'LL SEE YOU BACK HERE NEXT TIME.
