Thanks

Ugh! The forecast took a turn, it'* April 12th!!! We're not supposed to have snow!



At least I was able to find out that my car doesn't like snow. And the trunk doesn't seem to be leaking... if it is, it'* not bad. Going to have to get winter tires for next winter.

Went through some pretty massive puddles, or lakes, and now my pulley'* are all noisy too, lol.

Thanks, I have a few more pics to add, some are repeats, but I did some "enhancing" or... at least I hope it looks better... might have gone too far though. I was trying to bring out more detail and contrast, it might be a little too much though.

I also have a video, just a little gentle 0-60 run, TC on and about 90-95% throttle:
it would have been higher res had the phone not been oriented wrong... oh well, next time.
