I was standing next to my car talking to a buddy from work only to notice my passenger rear center cap is missing. Either it fell out somehow (which I doubt unless the tech broke it who did my tire swap Friday) or some douche nozzle thought it would be cool to steal the little center cap off my passenger rear wheel. Maybe I can see if conti will cough one up and if not it shouldn't cost much to just buy a new one that matches.

So I got that to do along with finding a place that sells some industrial strength glue to fix the one broken tab on my front lip. Anyone know a place that sells what I am looking for?

WGMG: People who cant drive a consistent speed on the highway. I just hate leap-frogging with the same 3 cars. like they were driving 65 when I passed, then shadowed me, then passed me at 75-80, then slowed down back to 65 at the next overpass (where cops hang out) so I pass, overpass gets out of view and they gun it back to 75. WTF??!?!?

I've been commuting from the valley for a few days, and holy balls! It's great when you're doing 75 in the left lane, but for some reason the right lane is pacing 60 , then that guy will pass someone else bog down the left lane and just stay in the ****ing left lane doing 60 making me late

Trick to that is shoot for the far right lane after the bridge for the up hill and you're usually completely free to the weight station

I hate the "thru traffic use left lane" it's like seriously it's merging

People need to learn to accelerate to get on the hwy and pace up on a gap, there's no need for people to shift lanes

I'd love to take Alaskan drivers and put them in the commute to Chicago I dealt with there would be a completely different understand to this all for them

South Eagle River on ramp is difficult to get up to speed before the highway merges. Especially true in the winter months. Mainly because it's a tight circle with a little bit of straight before the merge. So make sense to me why they posted the sign to help clear the lane a bit for the merge.

I've never had a problem there, however IF it is an issue, than the DOT should not have put an on-ramp there in the first place. This of course, would also solve a portion of the "OMG a HILL" slowdown in that area.

I've never understood the merge over tho, everywhere else in the US the highways/freeways have the right of way, and in the drivers manual we are taught to merge ONTO the highway. This exit defies that IMHO.

I also think DOT ending the third lane at Hiland road instead of continuing over bridge and end at S.E.R. was a mistake as well.

Not that its hard, the system keeps freezing and "connection error" is horrid. JKO is way worse than ADLS.
