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.

they could have said "starting at 79,995" and id have been all:

$80k might have been high IMO, but $70k is totally justified for a base no option car

I really think we're not going to see any $60k vettes though. It'll be like the $35k model 3.

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.

quit ugga dugging the torx bits [MENTION=7923]DEEZUZ[/MENTION]
Knew it.

You probably buy bits in bulk from China. Even cheaper then HF!

:rofl:
I've got almost as many t20/t25/t30 bits as I do 10mm anything.

But here I am wasting more time yet again with people who read auto magazines and base their experience off that
I don't read auto magazines
Yes that's what I'm doing with my harbor freight bits

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 :s00ls:
