Well I could swear at em in polish, sounds like a great idea. I think I'm going to mount a switch, with a relay to my battery, to another wire goin all the way to my rear bumper and then i'm going to mount 2 hella horns that are going to be connected to l.e.d. Strobe lights mounted on the side pillars of my rear window lol

If you tailgate me on a hill in the snow goin uphill...
BEEEEEP and then white strobes goin off

Hopefully it causes deafness and temporary seizures

Hellas? Pssh, air horns, that's where it's at... I like the strobe light idea though, I may have to keep that in mind.

Plus you live in Richmond. You will need more protection from dings. Maybe that's why you keep going back to Fastrack?

I can hear someone skidding hard from a distance. Either they're pulling doughnuts, or they're having a realllllllly hard time getting out of their (level) driveway.

It's snowing in Richmond.

EDIT: Whoever it is is driving me up the wall. Save some for me, Bro!!
(****, that means I need to get out of bed and start my day... )

No kidding - although some of the feeder routes for the bridges were covered in hard-packed melted-and-refrozen snow (ie. ice). Some people really have no business driving with the tires they have on.

But I did manage to enjoy some unadulterated alone time on the roads early this morning. I have to say, the tires the car came with don't really like wet snow all that much. But they were ok. I miss the Fuzions that were on my Integra. They seemed to be better handling the snow. And that was a FWD vehicle, too.

And yes, it was fun.

Nothing related to dings. Door dings happened everywhere. I like Fastrack, so I just go often. Btw, most drivers are ok in richmond. Every place has good and bad drivers.

Not going to lie but your car looks unreal in the snow. Major boner here. The only thing I don't like is your wing/spoiler/downforce generator but everything else about your car is beautiful

Had some snow to play with yesterday! Took a quick snap with my ONE X phone before I had to go to work. Too bad nothing was left when I got off work

No better in surrey ... Last night I stopped behind some chick in a parking lot to let my girl friend out and the chick just backs out right onto my passenger door... Then bitches at me cause I was behind her and she didn't look... Argued with her for a good 10 min before she gave me her info.... No damage that I can see but the bitch didn't even apologize or anything...

I will say that the one thing I wasn't prepared for was the pooling of water all over the place. In particular, as I was heading off the Oak Street Bridge at Bridgeport, turning left onto Garden City (southbound), I was in the right left-turn lane (there are two lanes that turn left at that intersection). A fellow driver (in their Porsche SUV) was also turning left in the left lane, and just as we cleared the intersection, SPLASH!! my car got covered by the water from the puddle that the Porsche SUV had just driven through (at speed).

Those were three seconds where I literally had to guess which way the road was curving, as the muddy, salty water was finding its way off my windshield and hood. Luckily, I was ok (ie. continued driving without incident). Good thing my windows were closed, and thankfully there wasn't any hard debris in the water being splashed up.

(This happened yesterday afternoon at around 1pm.)
