Default Stress Release

I've been building some anger for some time now and need to let it go. So, i'm taking to the twists and curves of the roads of SE Minnesota. I don't want to beat my car but its going to get a workout. I have some questions. What should I inflate my tires to in order to get maximum handling? I am go to be climbing very large hills at WOT, so should I keep the tranny in D vs. OD to prevent wear? anything else you can tell me before I leave in 2 hrs. would be appreciated. BTW- my music of choice for the voyage is Dimmu Borgiur death metal.

Proper inflation is best. You don't want your sidewalls flexing too much. Be careful on turns with gravel on the road (and intersections of gravel roads), and just let your ECM handle the shifting for you. Unless you don't want to wait for the Torque Converter to unlock before shifting

Be careful, and keep the rubber side down. Check for loose items in the car and trunk before you go.
