Just paid off the Alien (one year of free credit from Dell). So what did I do? Bought another Alien for OAK... 😸
Sounds like a sensible decision to me, lol.Just paid off the Alien (one year of free credit from Dell). So what did I do? Bought another Alien for OAK... 😸
Dear god.... it’s like a whole new language that I’m gonna have to learn for any modding.... and I thought learning Arabic was difficult.I got the RR2, just like the SW, from Singh Electronics in Toronto but the cable came from GCM in Caledonia Ontario. The cable cost $50 but the RR2 was $50 cheaper than Crutchfield, who doesn’t have the required HRN-RR-SU3, and they were also (and still are) $30 cheaper than Crutchfield for the Maestro SW.
I hope I interpreted that properly.I had a manual transmission Corolla years ago. I'd leave it in neutral when stopped at a light. So when I got hit from behind while stopped at a light I just sailed through the intersection...

..... manuals have to be in neutral when stopped. I was more referring to downshifting as you approach a stop.
And now, a related editorial:
Brakes applied or not, any car hit like that will go into an intersection. Arguably, brakes at an intersection are a bad thing but their use is mandatory for auto/CVT. If you get hit, you may come to a full stop in front of somebody whereas without brakes, you might sail through unscathed.
Then theres the crap shoot of where you wheels are pointed as a result. I’d rather the manual that’ll least stall itself out if the clutch is released, assuming the shifter is left in 1st, otherwise it’ll coast till it runs out of juice whereas an auto/CVT will continue to pull you into whatever while the brain and muscles react. Of course there’s a moment of clarity somewhere between surprise and panic after getting hit when you wonder how effective your stain guard is as you suddenly find yourself sitting 2” higher and a not so fresh smell fills your car.
