    The cool weather was fantastic here, but the issue that prevails is, the pavement cools too. Which means the tires don't stick as well. So now you're making more power thanks to the cooler/more dense air, but then can't put it down.

    Regardless, mine is sleeping for the winter so I don't have to deal with our crappy, cold, snowy, road salty winter with it.

    Yea, I'll pass. This thing is too "spooky" in that. I've had more powerful, rwd cars and driven with prudence and had minimal issue. This car, I breathed on the gas pedal to maintain flow of traffic, and almost took out a mini-van one morning on my way to work. What was sad, was that I reacted before any of the cars' safety "nannies" engaged.

    First season I had a sensible, FWD Monte Carlo at my disposal. Last year and now, I have a 4wd Suburban and added a nice big, Western 8' Pro-Plow to the arsenal this year. Life is trouble-free and uneventful now in winter.

    It's so fun lol. My car will be tucked in very soon. After a full bath inside and out Adams polished n cleaners , a test of the new wax series they have. Then I will be counting down the days till spring when I can test out the rotor swap n blower porting. Maybe another little treat also. I hope to see 485whp n 500+ torque after swap n porting.

    Honestly not sure bit I'll be swapping stock lower back on if I remember correctly. Tim would have the correct info here. Thanks for the info on the meth installs you did. Id really like to.drop those temps more myself, but I'm yet to see what I was looking for. I'd love to get an afterchiller system but we will have to see where that goes also
