    Sorry I have been ghost on you guys. Been moderating 3 car forums and a Facebook group on top of offline stuff. I am retiring my 29 and 51 soon and I have a 31 on the way to kinda replace them both. The 29 was just for tuning my 2 cars and the 51 is pretty much the recreational use.

    The CF 31 I have on the way is CF-31BWABZ2M and the bios supposedly has 0 hours on it.

    From the looks of it I purchased a 3rd non wireless unit. With the 2 51's I lucked up and the antenna was already there. The 72 in my sig I ended up finding an older parts 72 and did the swap.

    I'm also contemplating the recovery discs. I have HDD caddy on the way and I also wanted to know if the CF 29 and 51 power supply(s) work on the 31?

    That is good to hear. 1 less thing to try and track down.


    Yes, learned my lesson on the recovery discs. I'll go ahead and eat the cost for simplicity and sanity. What happened to the configuration site? I can't find anything telling me what MK my toughbook is.

    Where do I find what MK it is to order recovery? Being "DISCONTINUED" and XP with a 7 COA, I take it's going to be 1 or maybe 3 as I see that has both XP and 7 options attached?

    Received a little bit ago. I'll try and track him down.

    I overcomplicated the situation going straight to driver bundles instead of keeping it simple. A kid with a new toy before Christmas I guess, LOL!

    I see Mk 1 Performance/ Standard and MK 1 Value. I'll ll take this route until the disc(s) arrive.


    I have some questions for my 29 MK3 in my sig, but ill search a bit more and make a separate thread. Are old threads automatically locked by time delay? Most my threads I started or spoke in when I started my off need to collect these machines are locked at the moment.

    New question, how hard is it to find this piece that secures the "soft" covers or just bend it back and call it a day vs dealing with shipping from heartland?
