Internally Regulated Alternator Trivia - Bootstrap Current?

Electrical 26 Jul 2015

Wheels, Tires and Brakes 23 Jul 2015
These were discussed on the Ztrix website, as a way of putting bigger/wider wheels on your Z without buying custom wheels.  I have never heard much good about spacers, but these hub extenders seem different, so I wanted to ask.   FYI, I don't plan on any serious racing, but may do an oc...
