You got lucky there. I’m still not convinced about the diamond blade. Yeah it works but it takes longer to cut and when it grabs it fucking grabs!! Scary shit.
Yeah see I'd rather I melted through the metal and kill 10 blades than have that thing jump like it did. Second time my leg was out of the way but it hit the concrete. I didn't like it. Took me 5 wheels to cut the chunk off my axle but it never jumped.

Grinder with standard cut-off wheel. Happened at work cutting a piece of flashing while top stepping an 8' step ladder. When it caught I got pulled off balance and took one hand off the grinder. It flipped 180 degrees and rolled across my finger. Barely nicked the tendon. Those fucking things are dangerous. lol

Seen an AC almost bleed to death when one kicked back on him. Got his forearm wrist to elbow... I had just told him to put his guard back on for safety and he said the famous last words “ I’ve done this a million times before no problems “

Filling up at the gas station today. Moto cop pulls in as I'm getting ready to leave. I'm like please don't be loud car. Got an 18" magiflow really hope I don't get harassed.
Shit like that is why I just don't even bother with exhausts on anything. I do plan on straight piping the Jetta though since it'll help the turbo breath, but it doesn't make it loud. Same with the 4runner. I cut the resonator off because I kept smashing it on rocks but it didn't really change it much.

If only cops cracked down the same way on plug & play HID’s and LED bulbs. Most reflector style headlight housings and even some factory projectors can’t efficiently keep glare below the factory cutoff lines when you use a bulb that isn’t designed to work with the factory shit. No fix it tickets, just hand out citations. When people are spending $300 of mod money on tickets, maybe they’ll do a projector retrofit or go back to stock bulbs. Probably not though, they like their pink,
Purple, and blue HID’s because it’s “tyte yo” lol.

My car is pretty quiet but it's a tad louder than stock. Plus it's 3" so it's deep. Only been pulled over for window tint whole time I've owned the car.

I just find it easier not to give them a reason to pull me over in general. I really have to get my 4runner smogged this weekend so I can get good tags on it before that gets me in trouble.

I think the ricer gold wheels is what pulls attention to my car.

Haha my truck has led bulbs. I did point them down. I'm part of the problem. You'd swear I'm 21 the way my crap looks.
