i took a bit of Spanish in HS. my first job after HS was as a shoe salesman in a mall. all the Spanish speakers got punted to me. if we sold shoe polish or a purse or something at checkout, we got a much, much higher commission. so of course i would ask the ladies if they wanted to buy a matching purse. some gave me the skunk eye, others just giggled.

Just courious if anyone still uses the super shorty cartos. Tore the coil out of one if my rm2's and don't have time to rebuild it now. Also just not in the mood. Slapped a super shorty on and it reads 1.4 ohms. Same as my builds. Forgot how easy these things were.
So any other shorty CARTO users out there.
