Mine is outside too, but I keep it covered. I have driven it in the rain a few times (on trips).

Hydroplaning depends on two things, speed of the vehicle, and the rate the tires discharge water. If the V8 and V6 both have the same tires then they should both be the exact same.

I mean on a road covered in rain water I don't think you are going to be using the V8 to what it can be used to...

Idk if that makes sense or if im just dumb...

I demanded a 2SS/RS M6 nothing less. I wanted a sunroof but no left over 12s w/ sunroof were available. they had to go 500 miles to get the one I bought.
