When in in the driving position, how does a stiffer shaft enhance your experience?

I fail to see how this is a tangible difference, and would like to be educated.

I believe that is the drive shaft, and is probably carbon fiber. Supposed to be much lighter than oem shaft, there by increasing throttle response and making the car feel sportier

this + less rotating mass, so you have less drivetrain loss. also no U joint so once again, more power going directly to wheels. engine can rev easier. in theory you can use less initial throttle to get going, helps those with crazy clutches.

Only have a few miles on them so far, but I read just about every review online and they are very high rated. We'll see what the future holds.

I have the same, got about 600-700 miles on them now.



They are way better than the stock summers from what I have seen, and do great on cold wet mornings and heavy rain. Still waiting on icy/snowy conditions but I doubt I will see those for a while.

Why stick with the stock tire dimensions?

On the stock wheels I'd stick with the stock tire size, especially with an all season. No reason to change IMO.
