I know the site has said they aren't taking new orders right now, but was there an announcement somewhere.

My guess - Mike is leaving, and they don't want to spend time/effort to find a resource to keep it going:

Edit: I just realized the OP, so consider the source.

Kalim - Is there any other way to mount a hub centric spacer? I got a set of CSL front with 10mm spacer from RE. Although they're hub centric, but I still get very small vibration on the steering wheel compare to when I did not have any spacers. Is there a way to make sure the spacer is completely aligned to the center to mitigate the vibration? I mean, with the new RE spacer, I would think it won't be an issue compare to the old knock off I had.

In terms of comedy (not sure if this is really considered a comedy), I enjoyed Castaway on the Moon.
psych thrillers, comedies, and dramas

i love man from nowhere
it's like the korean version of jason bourne meets leon/professional

some of the korean movies that i enjoyed recently
The Man from Nowhere
Punch
Sunny
Once upon a time in Seoul
Going by the Book
Searching for the elephant

now some of the worst korean movies i've watched ... don't waste your time on these
Sector 7 (terrrrrrible scifi with the worst CGI)
A Better Tomorrow (i forget why i rated this so low... but i gave it a 1 star O_O )

Hmm, after reading the last post, I guess there might be some truth to it.

10mm spacers are hard to get right because of the limited area to attach the lip.
You can try taking the wheel off and putting everything back on again.
It's best if the lugs are just snugged up in a star shape first, then torqued with the car lowered just enough to stop the wheel from spinning.
LMK if you need a hand. I could free up an evening.

I was reading on some old threads, some suggested to use the lugs to position the wheel with the spacer while the wheel is in the air. then tighten down the wheel before dropping down. (Not sure how truth this is). When are you free this week evening? I'm open any time this week and now I live super close to you now. LOL.

Yep, same idea as I posted above. It helps with parts that aren't exactly hub-centric.

Tomorrow evening after work is good. You moved? Haha.
