The winter tires/wheels are on, tire pressures adjusted, fluid levels topped off. I guess that means that it won't snow until February. The handling is completely different than with the summer tires. I need to be really careful on the on ramps.

Seeing as I'm about to list my winter tires for sale as part of moving prep, I hope you're right!

First car? 64-1/2 Mustang. It wasn't a nice one, either.

I'm sure it probably is, too, but we haven't been there in the last couple of days to find out. Dirt 3 is a little too good on it.

finally got the shocks out of full stiff. had to take some 7/16 hexagonal bar stock and cut a notch in it and put that into a socket to adjust. I wonder if anyone at dinan ever bothered to adjust their front shocks, cause its basically impossible with the white thingy. And they call themselves engineers, ha

Well I already cashed in on the warranty with the shock and they technically paid me for my camber plates after I won my dispute through bank of america.

Only the 200 premium cars have interior views. and each car is authentic although not very detailed. my aston martin DB9 has a seemingly luxurious interior. I try to keep my eyes on the road though.
