Getting the Wheeling Fever
well, today is my last post for two years while i serve a mission for my church. this forum has been great, got me into wheelin and helped me fix countless problems with my kia. took the sport out for one last wheel yesterday, decided to take the very toughest trail around here. kia did fairly well, however i did end up burning through a clutch, and my front end started to sqeal horribly about fifteen miles in i think the bearings are shot. also broke a headlight and caused a huge amount of body damage. but it was a fun trip. got to rub it in my buddys face when his 75 ramcharger snapped the tie rod in two spots and he had to ride out with me. but thanks for the great forum, see you all in a few years!

Have a great time on the Mission Field, I did 11 or 12 years myself. I think about 19 different Countries.

I don't know about if it is good or not to drain Kia's gas tanks ( rusting don't know ) gas won't be good after 2 years. does it gum up Kia's ? others here might know more about long storage of Kia's. By the where are you going if I might ask ? John ( ps if the truck is messed up tell us where it's parked if we need parts LOL <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" /> just kidding )

Body Damage is Cool
Congrats on the call and good luck!!! Thanks for being part of the form. Just an FYI, P days are great for e-mailing family, friends, and hopping on the form for a couple of minutes to catch up.

Keep it real and "sing it like you mean it"!

Good luck man!

That's really cool what you are doing. I did a church mission myself, it was a great experience.
