I'm by no means a pro diver so carrying the speed I was, I wasn't sure I'd be able to correct in time to keep from hitting a curb... There is no doubt the car is more connected in a turn... Seems to me that it is a little more forgiving to throttle inputs in a turn also... I was in 2nd doing about 50 in a turn and was blipping the gas to try and drift the car and it didn't come loose like it used to. It just went faster.... I had to jump on the gas to get it to break loose at lower speeds/sharper turns....

I'm really looking forward to getting on an Autox... just to learn where the limit is... I'm not good/brave enough to try and find it otherwise.



but I can say for a relative rookie like me the difference is noticeable....

I was wondering why PQ wasn't all over this.

You had a gentlemans agreement, apparently.

PQ needed time for his attorney to look over said agreement for loop-holes.

Mission. Accomplished.

It's a good time to design a new fascia... a one-off... make his car unique.

I have a few ideas... maybe some Studebaker flair!

He has a really good attorney

Back on point... Does this give you any ideas?

I told you, Disaster King. Just keep all your shiny toys away from me.
Oh, and the real score is:
Ford Pickup:1 PQ:1 THR 22:0 Random Bird: -1 Jared: 0X (get it...because I dropped metal in my EYE )
At least Chris did his part in keeping the Mockingbird population under control. Poor thing never saw it coming lol
