I don't drive in the winter and try to drive on nice days but I don't stress if I'm caught in the rain. I just like it to stay clean too. I look at it as a reward for a nice day.

I ran 13.3 with my stock 05 GTO A4 and 13.4 with my stick 12 Camaro. I loved the interior of the GTO. I still need to work on my manual launching skills with the LS3.

It kicked in one time just as I was crossing the finish line at Milan Dragway in 3rd gear. It felt like the brakes were applied just as I lifted off the throttle.

They ran a Zl1 against some dedicated electric race cars at Milan. I think they must have taken the slowest time (12.7) to compare to the electrics - all had slicks except for the Zl1. :emoticon1:
