Hey guys! Thanks for the PM mopar_freak.

We have always shot Canon cameras so I tend to recommend them. The last time I looked into a point and shoot the power shoot seemed to be the way to go. Keeping in your $200 price range there is only one Canon point and shoot the PowerShot SX130 IS. (http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx130_is)

Looks nice with 720p HD video, 12.1 mp, wide screen, and the digic 4 processor is in some of their higher end cameras. ISO 1600 will help in low light but I assume with considerable noise. You can get noise reduction software like noise ninja.

Hope that helps a little, let me know if you have any other questions (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

16's are as small as you can go. I ran 16 inch steelies for one winter and there was maybe a 1/4in clearance in the front from the caliper.

How long have you been riding with the GR-2's and lowered?

There was a big argument over on C3G about lowering on these, since there supposed to be "OEM replacement". Alot of people over there says they will blow with lowering springs.


I drove that car lowered like that for 3 or 4 years on the gr-2's with no problems...

Sounds like your only option is to take it in for a smoke test. They fill the evap system with smoke, and wait for it to leak out.
There's really no way you can find a small evap leak, it can be a pin hole in a hose. Common issues are gas tank filler neck, canister, gas cap(as you know) The reason it takes a few days to throw a code is the systen needs to have a number of failed tests. It tests the evap system on it's own by pressurizing the system at start up. I think it's 6 failed tests or something like that, so 6 start ups.
I had to do this with my jeep a few months ago, $160 for the smoke test, $0.40 to replace the broken hose clamp on the filler neck. It's a pain but you gotta do it.

Awesome pics! Wish I could travel but I just started college. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I can't wait to be done with it already. lol

now I know if I'm ever attacked by a bear that I should fight back.



haha that's the only reason I took a shot of that sign. I never knew you should fight back, seems like a pointless fight to me...bears are big.

It's the New Belgium brewery in Ft. Collins. Famous for Fat Tire, Sunshine, 1554 ect...
It's an awesome place that runs off the grid. They use solar power and even have their own water refinery.
If you live on the west coast you know it well, they don't ship to the east coast, and probably not to Alaska

Joe, that's not a check. Beer tasting is free, and that was our card to choose what 4 beers we wanted to try.
