    It's definitely got to be getting more difficult to be an internet brand... Social media presence is everything in today's world. No longer is it word of mouth so to speak with the forums. And with there being fewer and fewer shops it's hard. At one point the city I live in had 5 local shops doing car audio plus 3 big box corporate stores as well. Now we have 1 corporate store with a little bit in it that it doesn't really advertise and one local shop that will order stuff in when asked.

    Love the bike. But at the -20 celcius we've had, and the snow/ice biking is out. And I don't have an exercise bike to use. Gotta use what I have available. Once camping hits this summer I'll spend a lot of time on my bike.

    FB has become a serious aspect of marketing for SSA. With $0 budget, I have to be on there often getting the name out and reminding people SSA exists.

    Yes social media platforms have been much more popular with the younger generations than old school forums. Which is unfortunate IMO. In comparison a forum managed such as this one, all of the content is nicely sorted and organized. Everything can be found. With social media platforms such as FB it sorts what it wants to to show, doesn't show things it chooses not too, moves things around etc... Finding specific posts and information can be difficult and frustrating. But, opening your FB app, and having the most popular posts show up in your feed, feeds the immediate gratification that people are so addicted to. As opposed to navigating to different sites, and scrolling through forums/topics/threads/posts to find specific content.

    Every forum has taken a hit to facebook and other social media sites. Sucks but some of us are still here.

    The way I see it, is quality over quantity. And welcome to the site.

    Thanks Aaron, been trying to get stronger. Consistency is key. Had some crappy sleeps last couple nights, and it's shown in the workouts. Was struggling to make it past 4 reps at 325 on squats this morning. Had to scale it back a touch. Which is not what I wanted, but, was necessary. Yesterday's pull routine was absolutely taxing on the body. And left me so drained. It felt amazing. I've started skipping again too. Downloaded a simple interval timer on my phone to use to set up work and rest intervals. So now I alternate between that and using the elliptical. Hoping I can get the discipline to start jogging in the spring again.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    So, I've been shopping for an RC F. I can't seem to get any of these damn dealers to move on their prices. I had three of them that have been holding these cars for months and they won't budge. I just happened to jump on FB marketplace and a C7 popped up for a song, so I started searching for some, and HOLY SHIT! SO many good bargains on them. I think they've hit rock bottom due to the C8. They can only go up from here I think. I mean, shit, I can get a low mile C7 for close to under $30K. That just blows my mind!

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Would it completely go away? Because it would normally start the sound about 5 minutes or so after staring,sometimes it would have started the noise right after start up. I ran it for a good while and gassed on it in park a few good times and still no sound..Noise was coming from the passenger side front wheel well,the exhaust manifold and doughnut gaskets where replaced when I changed the motor a few years back.Not real hard to replace but if something is wrong internal I hate to waste time replacing anything else.If it were a rod or main it would not just go away,right?
