We have danced around these types of questions before, but always with a stipulation that a JNC recommended to others needs to be dependable and safe. This week, the gloves are off! This time, we’re suggesting a JNC to someone who’s handy with a socket set (metric and standard). Since it may be hard to answer this question, please think of someone you personally know and go from there. Include him or her in your response. Maybe it’s someone who has dealt with JNCs in the past; maybe someone who has a domestic only mantra or diehard German engineering fan.
What JNC do you recommend for a car enthusiast?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “JNC Challenge, Part 4“.
Last week, I made a fumble on getting out the QotW question posted (kind of a big deal). Like being on a long expressway with nothing in sight except mile markers, you sometimes space out. But, you recovered the QotW Challenge by promptly giving an overwhelming chorus of “change those tires/tyres!” to our JNC challenge question of how to prepare for an upcoming gymkhana.
This week’s winner had a little something from everyone’s responses all rolled into one. It was none other than Randy, who able to upgrade the Shuttle and save us $70 dollars!
As this was the first gymkhana, a good set of tires on our stock 14 inch wheels would provide night and day performance from the Sunday paper deal-of-the-week tires currently on the Shuttle. Sure, they were technically made of rubber and had a round shape, but dependable they were not. Also, taking a few of the interior bits out (carefully!) adds to your knowledge base of your pride and joy!
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
