Dyno tuned, break in miles, and you can't rip it down the highway? Where is the fun in that plan. Let it rip. If something breaks, it was gonna break. They'll be ripping it pretty hard during final dyno tuning anyway.

Let Sam break it in for you. If anything is going to break, that's when it'll happen, then they can fix it. (grin)

Having a parent ride with you (especially your mother) is no fun. They usually don't like it when you rev to 4,000rpm and dump the clutch.

No need to full tank B4 storage. Plastic tanks don't corrode nor condense water like old steel tanks. Also, you're going to run around @ start of next season with a full tank of old gas. Your call....

No picture Tim, I prefer to not try to piss off cops. I was just over the limit Jody, I didn't even notice him until the lights on the truck lit up. Radar detector was beeping, but I figured it was from the Buick in front of him.

i couldn't tell you Ryan. I was honest with him, he had me dead to rights, I passed him. Told him I was heading home from work, enjoying the cruise and not paying attention to the speedo. His response was "probably easy to do in this car". Let me go with a warning.

That's why I bring it up. I had a '05 2500 that at 20,000 miles needed front end parts. Then, more parts. $3,000 later, still wasn't right. I rarely drove it and at 30,000 miles in 6 years I traded for a '11 Compass that had no problems. It did have some design flaws, like brakes that weren't very c...

just my 2 cents, but i LOVE driving my Camaro in the winter...and when I got snow tires...HUGE difference...I'm a huge believer in snow tires now, and I see no issue really with RWD if there's snow tires. Way better than the Terrain I had with FWD and all weather tires.

Just throwing this out there. My sons school is selling raffle tickets for their yearly charity fund raiser. They are $100 a piece, with a $25,000 grand prize and 3 other cash prizes. Only 999 tickets...

Yes they are, but 70% of the schools operating budget comes from this yearly. Like I said just throwing it out there, at Bekky's request (demand).

Yessir, small catholic school in northern MI. Only 70 students in 7 grades. This raffle is tied to an auction dinner that raises most of the funds to operate the school. The rest is covered by the church. Instead of doing small fund raisers through out the year, they do one. Wham bam and done.

They never have. 799 is the most they have sold in a year. Like I said it is tied to an auction dinner that also raises money. They count on the money raised from both to operate the school. Norther Michigan problems I guess.
