3%?

sounds generous

please type out you're reasoning out so the gm vette engineers can understand your disdain and disapproval of torx bit fasteners on plastic parts.






I'll wait right here

BUT as long as it's not a totally deceptive move by GM, i'm with you, i don't really care.

no, im just REALLY excited for your reasoning, like why most cars don't need more gears than 3 or 4, or why locking differentials don't make sense, or possibly the logos manufacturers chose to designate certain functions of vehicles

IT'S EXCITING TO ME.

Or maybe manufacturers shouldn't use cheap metal for the screws....

How many rusted out torx deck screws do you see? They deal with all the elements and they don't strip.

Or maybe you're using the wrong torx/hex head size on your bit

No problems with TORX other than a brand called sram specs Ti bolts that are shallower than other brands so if you’ve got a bit that’s tapered at all it’ll usually jump. I buzz all my bits (Allen included) on the soft wheel to remove that shit chamfer.

Oh also torx isn't found in computers. Just Phillips usually. They work much better when they get all rusty
