Here's my problem:

I was stopped at a red light yesterday and a Porche Boxter convertable pulled next to me (the guy had his date or wife with him). The light turns green and we both sort of squeezed into the intersection like we're waiting on each other to do something. I hear his car wind up so I punched it, too. I stayed a 1/2 car length in front up to the 1-2 gear change with the front tires barely hanging on to the pavement. Typically these guys tend to catch and pass me 1/2 way through second gear (autostick) but he gave it up before then. At the next light he wanted to try it again, but I obey all speed laws and made a left turn instead. How embarrassing would it be to have such a fine car as the Boxter only to get spanked by a PT Cruiser especially when you have your sweetie in the car.

I look at it like this: Buy a PT GT with a stage 1 kit installed instead of a Porche Boxter convertable. Then you can buy a piece of property with the money you saved.

So what's my problem? I don't have one.

After I installed S1, the threads on my front tires have been wearing at an alarming rate. I can't figure out whats causing it.

macster;
That just gives you an excuse to get better tires sooner. I'm looking forward to wearing mine out, too.

ROFL!


Hey, macster, do you have a BTG strut bar installed? I just installed one and it is schweeeeet. Faster turns. I no longer have to worry about flying off a turn into a tree. Instead, I wonder if I will be passed by my own a$$ end.


I wonder if it helps traction off the line..?
