  1. Prices are on the rise......

    I would consider converting a special ICE car to natural gas in order to be able to keep driving it - assuming that is allowed.
  2. Mixing tires: PS4S front, SC2 rear?

    So you made me look it up and I didn't remember correctly. However, I think you might also have it wrong. According to Tire Rack, the Cup 2s for the GT350R are 180 tread wear rating. Unless Tire Rack doesn't offer the correct Cup 2s for the GT350R. I've looked it up in the past and it's...
  3. Prices are on the rise......

    Definitely the GT350 is an awesome car worth experiencing. And it will only get tougher over time to find a new-ish GT350 to drive.
  4. Mixing tires: PS4S front, SC2 rear?

    3% that you have to spend multiple times a year if you buy tires with 200 tread life or lower and drive the car a decent amount + go to the track a couple times. I only drove my GT350 about 10,000 miles a year and owned it for 4 1/2 years. I also had winter tires that I used on dry days...
  5. Prices are on the rise......

    What's folo mean to you? Google says families of loved ones. I don't think that's what you are after. You mean YOLO?
  6. Mixing tires: PS4S front, SC2 rear?

    IIRC supercar 3Rs have really short tread life, like 100 rating or something whereas Cup 2s are around 200. 4S and PSS are closer to 300 tread life. I would consider the Supercar 3s, but not the 3Rs. I think the Supercar 3s have around 200 tread wear rating like the Cup 2s. Really I prefer...
  7. Prices are on the rise......

    Yes, if people keep paying higher prices, they will continue to rise. I'm surprised anyone in the world would buy one right now, but apparently there are a lot of people out there with money to spend.
  8. Anyone know anything about this GT350?

    If it didn't have the black and yellow on the nose IMO it would look a lot better. I also don't love the weird stripes on the rear quarters.
  9. My Black Mach 1 Landed!

    Wish we had the GT350 sound on demand by the flip of a switch when wanting to go bonkers. Just dreaming. Highly addictive sound, for me a little too much to have permanently. It's like the car screams at you "go faster! goooo!!" Would be cool to hear a comparison between GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, and...
  10. Mixing tires: PS4S front, SC2 rear?

    I think as long as the less grippy tires are in the front, you are fine. I probably wouldn't put the less grippy on the rear. That could cause you more of an issue. Understeer can be annoying, but it's safe. So I would have no problem agreeing with you on less grippy fronts. I personally...
  11. GT350 or Mach 1

    I don't know why you would buy anything but a manual transmission. Just my opinion, but you asked. I think you should relax and have fun shifting in traffic. Practice your rev-matched down shifts. I prefer driving in traffic with a manual. If I'm just cruising at the speed limit I don't get...
  12. GT350 or Mach 1

    I think it's an extraordinarily tough decision right now. Mach 1 Pros: warranty, you can order what you want, lower price. Cons: for street driving the extra coolers, etc just mean extra money you are paying. It probably won't retain it's value as well as a Shelby in the long run. Direct...
  13. 2021 Camaro LT1 6-speed or 2021 Mustang GT Base 6-speed?

    What model and options of Camaro did your buddy buy? Base 1SS? 2SS 1LE? I assume it's not a V6 or 4 cylinder model. I haven't really heard about issues with seating. Was there not enough adjustability?
  14. Tire question for anyone driving their car in colder weather.

    Florida doesn't have cold weather so there's really nothing to worry about there. Definitely daily whatever you want in Florida.
  15. Tire question for anyone driving their car in colder weather.

    Thanks for the correction. I was confusing the DCT with the automatic, I guess. I think my point still holds that the wheel torque available on launch is high with the GT500 - making it a little more difficult to control when there's not much traction available. Yeah, I also take it easy when...
  16. Tire question for anyone driving their car in colder weather.

    I have driven V6 and GT Mustangs year round, but I wouldn't recommend it with a GT500. I did drive my GT350 occasionally in the cold and sometimes in the snow, and it handled weather just fine. I used my Pilot SS tires down in the 20s and they were fine as long as I was sensible with the...
  17. Road rage incident

    That's why I quit riding. Motorcycles are fun, but it's not worth dying over. Negative attention can get you dead. The amount of contact needed to knock down a motorcycle will barely even scuff the paint on a car.
  18. Road rage incident

    I definitely have my issues on the road, but the thing I always try to remember is that everyone has a different idea of what is the CORRECT way to drive. Some people think it's ok to hang out in the left lane driving under the speed limit. My wife is one of them. And NO ONE in the world is...
  19. Why DIDN'T you get a camaro?

    If you buy the BASE 4 cylinder Supra for $43k and compare that to the BASE A10 GT which still costs quite a bit less, I'm pretty sure the GT is significantly faster. Now if you upgrade to the straight 6 Supra for $50k or more, then they are close. The Supra isn't that fast for what it costs is...
  20. Why DIDN'T you get a camaro?

    The issues I have with Supra are: 1. No manual transmission! This is a deal breaker for me. 2. Price is very high. 3. It's not that fast. But I do think the Supra looks great in a side view. Better looking by far than the Mustang. The Supra is only hideous from the front view.
