My understanding is that motor oil does not go bad, so might be a good time to stock up (2 rebates per household).

Thanks. I added the link to Walmart on the main page.

I've got a packet of ketchup in front of one of my radiators. Got an 18" version of this but it doesn't reach the corners.

I picked up a prestacycle tank & regulator and this digital gauge off
 amazon amazon
.

The 30CF tank was 25 bucks to fill it up. it'll put 2psi into a tire in 1 second and i have a ton of gas left in it after taking it to the track today. Don't need to deal with a compressor and I don't need to lug a big can of compressed air around. Very easy to bleed off air when the tires are hot and to put it back in when they have cooled off. Nitrogen is the way to go.

How many fills can you get for that $25? Seems pricey for air. Lots of articles explaining nitrogen is a waste of money.

A mid-sized 33 cubic foot cylinder is less than two feet tall and eight inches across, yet it can inflate up to 10 empty car tires or 120 empty bicycle tires before needing a refill.

this is a pretty good deal and big time/space saver; I used to carry around a large airtank and it only lasted a days of topping off.

also I wonder if it fits in the spot for the fire suppressor at the passenger feet...?

Fair enough. I'll add it to the list. Thanks!

Where exactly did you get the Nitrogen from?

I got the nitrogen from Sims Welding Supply: http://www.simswelding.com/contact-us/

Time will tell how long the tank lasts but I have used it to add about 30 psi across my tires and someone else used it for an unknown amount of tires and pressure when I was not around. Plus who knows how much has leaked while fussing around with it. Down to 1400psi on the tank now, I think it started around 1800psi.

The 33cf size will not, its about 8" wide. The 6cf might but I think that may be a little small for the job, it would probably only last you 1-3 track days. Still, if a refill is convenient then its a very easy thing to take with you.

I only just ordered one today but I think the alekshop roll / harness bar is a viable alternative.
- alekshop.com/products/porsche_gt3_991_harness_bar

Snap-on / Bluepoint makes a very nice tire pressure gauge. I've been using one for a few years now and really like it. Model TPRG60 priced at $71.75
- store.snapon.com/TPMS-Tools-TPRG60-P647092.aspx

Perhaps someone could suggest some harnesses and an intercom. I bought an intercom but it turned out to be a waste of time and money. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. If you get suggestions for harnesses or other parts, I'll add them as well.

Intercoms:

You want cheap and easily moved from helmet-to-helmet and car-to-car, then Chatterbox.

http://winecountrymotorsports.com/ch...o2-p-1302.html

You want a rally intercom that you can bluetooth into a cellphone and send good quality audio output to your GoPro or DVR, then go for Peltor or Stilo (I use both).

The Stilo is very nice, but does require a $90 adapter cable if your helmet mic is a Peltor.

Stilo WRC DES EVO

http://stilo-usa.com/intercoms/wrc-des-evo-intercom

Peltor / 3M FMT 120

Thanks. I think I'd like to link to something other than an eBay auction. I didn't expect the amazon link to go bad. I'll try to keep an eye on the other items to make sure the links are still valid.
