It was nice to meet you last Sunday! I'm still a noob (3 times), but I've learned not to squeeze the wheel, which seems to help keep my hands and arms from tiring out.

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.

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.
