Having a hoist makes changing the cables SOOOO much easier.

Always avoid using ebrake in winter unless parked on incline .

Just leave in gear.

So, I was doing uber donuts tonight in the Subby, spinning an absolutely absurd small and fast circle, as you may suspect... and I look up to see a cop shining me. I stop, roll down the winder, and he pulls up. He asked, "What are you doing?" .. Lol "Ummm donuts?" I said, he was like "well people will call and bitch and that's no fun so let's call it quits."

Asked him if he would do one or two more with me, to which he politely declined. "If people would bitch about YOU doing donuts, imagine how'd they feel if I was doing them in a police car." I told him his does better donuts cause it's RWD and we should have a competition. He laughed and told me to go home. lmao...

Good guy cop. Sees you doing donuts, politely asks you to stop so that people don't call and make him ticket you.
