Yes I have a livernois tune line up but I need to talk with my dealership because they assured me it wouldn't void my extended warranty but the warranty company says differently. Of course they probably told me what I wanted to hear so I would buy the warranty. I've got other plans for the truck too like a 57 mm Turbo, intercooler, exhaust, level kit, Etc

Substitute a CR2025 battery for a CR2032 in my bicycle light?

My bicycle safety light is designed for CR2032 batteries and 2025's were all I had on hand. The CR2025's work but after a ride they go out and I'm assuming this is because of a lack of a snug contact.

I've heard they can be used in place of the CR2032's if you put a folded piece of aluminum foil on top of the battery to fill in the gap for the thinner CR2025's. Is this legit? and if so, is the foil placed on top of the battery as shown in the pick? How thick do you need to fold it up to make it snug enough? Thanks.

:eek:

Edit: Backstory for the above icon. The cutting disk can reach 11500 RPM, being 225mm wide this comes down to linear speed of 150m/s. Now if you hit a rock and chip a 20 gram teeth of it and it becomes a projectile having 225J of energy. About double of 22LR or in ballpark of .17HMR. How much is it going to slow down by plastic guard before hitting you?

Yes they are. And the birds are flocking. Hope we get more snow than we did last year.
