I drive like the RoadRunner on speed...
Truthfully, I'm careful of road conditons and traffic, but I am an aggressive driver when conditions permit, and the Epitome loves it.

Sometimes I try to drive normal or a little more aggressive than normal and it just gets boring. Yes, its cheaper, but its boring. Besides, I'll barely get on the gas and the turbo will make about 2psi boost, and because of that 2psi boost, the exhuast backpressure increases and there is a sudden surge to 10psi boost and the car just takes off with my foot halfway down...so I just prevent that by putting my foot to the floor and just starting out with 10psi boost.

Let me just say this...maybe it will give you an idea, I put my tires on my car a little less than 3,000 miles ago. When I put them on the tires were about half worn. Now the tires on the front are past the wear bars. Make your own conclusions from that.

hmm... with my bonnie 3000-3500 was normal. but with a DOHC 4.6L V8 under my foot, well, let'* just say there isn't much manifold vaccume... i'll let you make your own conclusions from that (seems like everyone'* saying it, so why shouldn't i?)
