Too bad your fancy image stabilization doesn't stabilize the image.

We still see eachother. Monday was actually a holiday here, and I drove mine the entire long weekend, all 3 days straight, but there are some issues. Mostly I get a solid clunk when going over bumps. I suspect shotty engine mounts, or something front subframe related. Also anthing over 25% throttle, I get a weird rattle, almost like heatshield or coins or something. I expect it's potentially valve float.


Sounds like it could be pinging.
Check the timing.

I thought that might be the issue, but I'm running 91 octane, and can't adjust timing on an SPI.
