Tech and Driving Tips
These tips come from a variety of sources. Some come from your fellow club members and some from published sources recommended by them or others. When possible, your editor will identify the source. The tips do not necessarily constitute professional advice, so approach with caution. If it is mechanical or driving advice and if you are one of those souls who can cross-thread a ketchup bottle cap or are a frequent entrant in the Arizona Demolition Derby and Ditch Driving Rodeo (you know who you are,) gently close the page, move away from the keyboard, and seek help before proceeding.
