    I took my 360 out yesterday and I already put 400+miles on it.... Is anybody else going to be out driving over the weekend? I will be at pasteiner's On Saturday morning to meet up with a few other cars. It’s far from being in the 70s, but I’m not having any traction issues with my measly 400 horses Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Usually, the potholes are sketchy around now. I usually just drive on known smooth pathways.

    I went for a nice drive on Sunday. Scouted a route prior to make sure no potholes or snow run off.

    I always pre-scout my path also. I spent most of my time on I/696 and Woodward Avenue. I wanted to get some driving in so I can better compare the Tubi Exhaust to the Capristo Lvl 3 I ordered. It should be here in a couple weeks.

    I've had my C8 out, next Nice Day I might get the 355 out as those tires are a little more Michigan Pot Hole Safe. My 430 has such a low profile on the tires I probably will not run that until mid-april

    Great to meet you @ RM

    Well that must have felt like Christmas in February :cool:

    Maybe it was the mild Winter or less C19 traffic, but pothole season in SE MI seems to also be mild this year for a change!

    I noticed that the potholes are not as bad; probably for 2 reasons:
    1. people are driving much less
    2. the winter was relatively mild with fewer days < 10F and fewer temp swings

    I hit a nasty one a few weeks ago.....Luckily I have two spare rims . She will be going in for sport cats and And to switch out the Tubi Valveless for the Capristo Lvl 3 system. I can’t wait to hear the difference .

    I am super OCD. I don't expect to take my car out for more than two times this year. I really don't want to drive it until I can get the fuel lines replaced (the lines are 25 years old) as 355's have a bad habit of going up in smoke.

    Right now I still see salt on some roads. That is a nope for me!

    Ten day forecast appears favorable so might get one out of storage for a good long dust-off drive this Sunday :):)
