Re: 0-60 bested my best

I just turned over 10k miles on my 2013. Gas tank almost empty, around 20F, one way 4.4 sec - return trip 4.8 sec. (to counter a possible slope in the road). The crazy thing is that it did not feel...

Re: Shaking in seat after 65+MPH driving me crazy

I am here in S Carolina - had the Pirelli Summers and now All Seasons - love them both equally. If you don't need deep snow tires or going up into the mountains you should not need pure winter tires.

Having driven mainly European cars I am used to "stiff". It is all relative - I am in my 50s and run my SRT '13 with 40 psi instead of in the low 30s as recommended. Out roads here are not all...

As I have run flats, first thing I did is take out the wheel, car lift, and corner storage boxes. I think it may all weigh about 40 kg or 80 lbs.... and now I have a ton of space ... a 911 Porsche...
