    I may need to grab some tire tread from the side of I-75 on the way home.

    I always applied as a single, minority, transvestite. Many student loans later, apparently it didn't work.

    That tire tread would look neat bolted onto the handguard as a heat shield near the gas block!

    If you fold it a bit it can even act as a forward hand stop.

    So my Mad Max build just got put on hold... turns out the handguard is a bit longer than I expected, so I can't use the flip sight FSB. Looks like I'm going to have to find a low profile gas block to use this rail that I already have.

    What diameter is your barrel at the gas block?
    I've got an extra .750 low profile steel gas block laying around

    I should measure it to be sure, but I believe it's a .75- I'll check tonight.

    WTF? I just noticed that my sister's '16 Honda Odyssey has drilled and slotted rotors...

    Yeah - it helps wear down the pads faster so Honda can sell you more of them, preferably at the Dealership like all loyal Honda owners are supposed to.

    Real thing is that because of the sharp angle of the nose on minivans there's a lot of downward pressure on the front end (also engine weight), so these types burn through tires/brakes at an alarming rate.

    I guess Honda is trying to keep the rotors cool enough during all of the racing around town your Sister does! :car:

    My uncle owns a Honda dealership so maintenance at the dealer is cheaper for us than even the cheapest shops around town.

    Apparently my brother-in-law put those on there because the OEM rotors kept warping, which is a known issue with Odysseys.
