    Question: tires

    That's what the Chevrolet engineer told me as well. "Heat 'em up, it won't break". Yeah, he actually said that. My concern is that massive wheel-hop can break stuff, and the wheel-hop IS massive. ...

    Question: cold sucks

    I find at less than 60 degrees I can't floor the gas pedal in 1st or 2nd gear and not make the back end hop around. I don't know why the traction/control aids are not preventing the wheelspin, and...

    Question: gas

    All you Sta-Bil users, research StarTron. It's much cheaper than Sta-Bil, preserves gas, breaks down the phase shift of Ethanol, and actually restores old gas, not to mention the cleaning ability. ...

    It's starting to look a bit gimmicky, will miss the 427, all GM V-8's with superchargers get lousy gas mileage. I'm almost afraid to imagine the cost.
  11. oil temp

    I'd be a bit concerned if you weren't running synthetic oil, but you are. Syn's viscosity is more stable through wider temp ranges. The one concern is that you do need a certain temp to properly...

    Poll: True
