    Hello the board

    I just wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks for the sweet site!

    I've had my bugeye since 2003 and have it still in awsome shape - 25k miles and no signs of trauma. I learned to drive on a Big-wheel so I've taken a while to get used to the AWD - Its been great for the NC mountains here but I'm going to have to do something to get some power back at this elevation. I swear it pulled harder in KS with 91 octane.

    I think I will go with the AP and MadDad stealthback (until they come out with a dual tip that doesn't drone). It seems like Salt Lake is at a similar elevation so their maps should be pretty safe here (3-5k feet ASL)?? I also want to get the balance sorted out better. It improved with the tires at equal pressure but I couldn't get a real good read on whether that was safe for the center diff, so it looks like rear sway bar and...? I'm fine with the stock wheels and tires for now. I don't want to have to go mach to get a little free. Oh and please don't read this the wrong way - I am not 16, don't have a BOV, and I am aware of snap oversteer. In fact I drove a 76 buick estate wagon at 16 with a 455 and RWD in the Cleveland snow.

    here is a slightly older pic, and my last car (not the truck scroll down but also a daily driver): (pause while n00b searches for the attach button). Please let me know what you think.

    Some cars warrant yellow, others don't. I think the WRX wears it well. Plus it was the last 2003 in the state and so I got the 2.8% loan.

    I thought it was a wagon thing (can't tell what you have). Otherwise that would have been my choice.

    I haven't made it out there yet. It must be awesome if people are willing to deal with all the traffic and enforcers.

    It is really sweet here but the shoulders are missing for the most part. I have some favorites but they are way to nice to post about. Might as well ask where my morel patches are - you'll get the same. Actually, I'm joking and usually willing to share info, I just don't want them to become too popular as it seems to attract the po po.
