Default Why I hate Colorado sometimes

Damn, it likes to snow here. Since I can't drive it at least I'll have lots of time to tune it.


...and I know the wheels are too big and heavy, they were on the car when I bought it.

I think it was 80* or so in San Antonio. Pretty overcast, and it was quite windy...
Not the best of days weatherwise.

Lol, Motegi MR7s. My eclipse came with those, they like to kill themselves if you leave the tire standing up with no support.

I was skiing in in colorado last week. We almost got stranded on 70. We just passed the stop point before they closed the road. Then two days later we were detured to higway 6. It was fun but I was glad to land in Texas.
I had to take my jacket off to keep from sweeting.Lol
Sorry, I had to throw that in there.

Snow sucks, but make the best out of it and do some drifting that's easy on the tires. Just don't get a ticket for it. Apparently private parking lot slipping and sliding illicits $172 fines these days...

Yeah winter sucks man.

RWD is worthless in the snow-especially with snow tires. Tried to take the supra out, just on my street. That was a mistake
