Default I love this car mor every time i drive it.

just out cruisin around.got on a straight stretch and went from 50 to 80 in no time at all.but i decided to slow down cause theres too many potholes and stuff.and pothole dogin at that speed just isnt cool.and then i decided once i got to the main highway i decided i needed to spin some tire.but i kinda talked myself out of it and gave it 3.4 throttle between that and some loose gravel athere was spinnage. also i realized that peelin out in FWD and RWD is completely different.ol Bonnie kinda had a mind of her own.and then i had to swerve a giant ridge in the road(our roads are crap) at like 50 and there wasnt a whole lot of body roll at all.and i have the soft ride suspenion. MAN I LOVE THIS CAR!!!!

Yep the torque steer will send you around. But i agree with you, i love it more and more too! If you like your 50-90 now, put in a Ram Air like i have done recently and sit back and see what happens. It goes by MUCH quicker. And that'* with my restrictive grill/drain ends on them.... I'd try it with them off, but right now we have gravel over all our roads for sealcoating. If i hit 1/2 throttle or more i spin. It'* getting better, it'* getting pushed into the asphalt more and more. I'm glad i leave for mankato next tuesday!

well that road had been resurfaced fairly recently, i was still kickin up oil.it sucked.and see i figured theyd taken care of that car internal removing ridge in the road so i wasnt payin attention and when i saw it it was too late to break cause it wouldve went over the top of it with the added fact the front end would be drooped down.....not cool.so hints the swervage.
