Thread: Where to buy VP fuel jugs locally in a hurry?

  1. #1

    Where to buy VP fuel jugs locally in a hurry?

    Preferably in West LA. Doing the Streets of Willow track night this weekend, gonna run out of corn juice on the way there.

    Pep Boys jug is garbage, I'm better off drinking the ethanol and pissing it out once I get to the track.

    Here's a couple 5 gals on the cheap. He's located in OC so it's a little more of a drive than you were looking for, but cheap jugs are always nice jugs.

    It's insane cause it happened in the middle of Westwood on a rooftop parkinglot in broad daylight. Under a camera.

    The thieves were the biggest morons imaginable. They left the $100+ spacers and Muteki lugnuts. The wheels were just RPF1s 18x9.5 38 offset so not even that expensive. The Hankook RS-3 tires could barely pass the 2/32" test, almost bald. So all the idiots got are some curbed RPF1s covered in brake dust.

    Tow trucks can't even make it up the lot so they left. I spent 5 hours carefully jacking the car up from the ground, anyone else would have done damage. Had to remove the bumper and use engine mount to begin. Need just one more spare tire to limp down from the lot.

    Thanks a lot, really appreciate the spare, can't believe you drove across town to drop it off, you saved the day. Got it towed to a shop, so Geico will take care of the rest.

    You too, that's really useful that you sent the wheel invoice.

    Ya'll are making me all teary eyed about missing MOD again, what a community. The owners, the shops, everything. I'ma deuce every Evo till my fingers fall off.

    Dang, I hope Geico makes you whole without too much of a deductible. Did the camera catch the license plate of the thieves? Are there any identifying marks on the wheels? I hope they get caught and anal probing in prison is their future.

    Btw, was the upper level deserted like in the pic? Most thieves work in the day when people are away.

    damn i can't believe people are that fucked up..

    Update: Just got the car back. Geico's shop did a fine job in ordering the right parts, got the same size RPF1s, and they let me switch to 265 ZII star specs from the 255 R-S3s that I had. However, none of that would have meant shit if it wasn't for Gilbert at Massimo Power, he put the finishing touch on the alignment today. Dude even did some magic on the dampers to make it more confident over bumps, car feels great.

    In the end I paid a $500 deductible for like $1200 tires that I needed anyway, plus the wheels and rotors were replaced on top of that. Not a bad deal at all.

    Sorry no glamour shots, needs a wash. Gonna pop off the center caps and paint the valve stems black or something.

    Shit I totally forgot I'm such a scrub, give me your paypal or something so I can send you $20. Without your help I'd still be stuck on that roof waiting for a spare to arrive.
