Hmm, I hear nothing. Absolutely nothing. Are you sure you hear things?

Bwahahaha, we here in Minnesota are warmer than you are. Sorry, it ain't that often in the winter I can give a Floridan sh*t for being cold.

At 6°F like it was this morning, traction at 60 Mph is hard to come by. On a short stretch of highway this morning, squeeze the throttle a bit, unlock torque converter, a little more throttle, downshift into 3rd, more throttle, downshift into 2nd at 60 Mph, car moves sideways 3' before lifting off the throttle.

Good thing I took the intercooler off for winter And I don't have any heated seats

Cheers,

Heck, 70 is perfect and 36, while not my favorite, is certainly bearable for the few hours it occurs here. I was born and raised in mid-state NY, so I know what you're dealing with in the winter.

That won't stop me from occasionally pointing out the balmy temps here during a normal winter day, though.
