reverse is true for my hands.....I need the calluses for my obstacle course races, so I refuse to pamper my hands
Until they get ripped open and off. Shave them shits down and moisturize!!! They’ll still maintain the callus, just won’t be as rigid (which is what makes them rip)

I use it when doing high rep snatches with KB's. Toast without it.

I'm really picky about hand lotion\creme. I usually just do basic ass baby lotion. But I do have a big tub of this stuff at my desk because my wife didn't like it.

Your thumb looks like it's been in a meat grinder. There is no shame in having velvety hands. I wasn't joking - that cream is very good shit.
yeah idk, what's going on with that thumb in the picture, it doesn't normally look like that , maybe all this no glove wrap handling did fuck me up.

I still need to decide on a RSB and a new set of tires and - leaning torwards H&R 26mm + moog endlinks and hankook RS4. First event is at summit point on march 4th-5th. I can't wait.
curious to see what minimum front camber setting will be with the arms and the strut mounts together...

Please keep us updated on the installation process and how you like it; I've been loosely considering that exact brace.
Everything I've researched pointed me in this direction. It's discreet, functional, and better value than alternatives. Installation should be straight forward, provided I can get my hands on a rivnut tool.

rivnut tool
There are a few decent/cheap ones on Amazon now. When I bought mine three years ago there were very few out.

If you just want to get this installed and don't plan on ever using it again you could use this DIY. I made a similar design, but I used a full thread allen bolt with a nut and a thrust bearing . Held the allen bolt and tighten the nut with the thrust bearing between the nut and the rivet nut. Either way will get it done. Dorman sells them as well.

Life saver! The Dorman option looks pretty neat, and I like that it's compact. I likely won't need to use it more than once, so having a single-use/single-function tool that doesn't take up any space is great.
