Trusting that Hasport gets their mounts up for sale in a timely manner, yes. I would say no sooner than a month, but I'm closing on a house in 3 weeks anyhow.

RSX Type S actually. I like the cruise control buttons better and they're reliably half the price. Only difference is that it's smooth rather than perforated.

Scored a set of HX rims and winter tires for $90. Will likely let my brother use them this next winter, and then use screws to turn them into "superstuds" for ice racing.




Replaced my rear drums with new ones from Honda. I tried resurfacing the originals but was still getting pulsing while braking.




Repaired and repainted my mirrors. At some point I'll be upgrading my side cameras and will have the mirrors back on while I work on that project.

Another new toy while waiting on mounts. I'm closing on a house next week and will need a little more than my old trailer to move stuff.




Also getting fuel economy I haven't seen since November. It was above freezing the last 2 days, which basically doesn't happen for 4 months.

Are you getting lean burn? Your IMA SOC shows empty and my car doesn't go into lean burn unless the SOC is >70% (which means I have to have the battery charged before disabling it), unless your car is different?

I get lean burn at any SOC above empty... maybe anything above 15% I'd guess? It's whatever the threshold is that allows auto-stop, so if I have one I have the other.

My battery shows empty but I'm feeding the computer a straight 50% signal (via arduino) right now. The battery gauge apparently reads from something else as it always shows empty regardless of what SOC I feed the ECU. It almost never gets above freezing so I'm not getting unwanted auto-stop but if I go much longer I'm going to start cutting climate control wires until I find whatever one disables auto-stop.
