    Enjoying the snow

    I just got home from a 1.5 hour treck through Queens and Brooklyn. I live on a hill and just went right past a mustang spinning its wheels and struggling to get up

    I drove all day and I must say, it was fun.

    I have well worn RE-92s and I drove a total of 5.5 hours today

    I'm going Tokyo Drifting in a little bit since my girlfriend fell asleep and I drank way too much coffee.

    My RT-615s didn't let me make out of the work parking lot.

    The Faulken RT-615 are warm weather autox / track tires (the tire in my currrent avatar). Get them cold, add some frozen precip and you are going nowhere.

    I had some fun last nightin the snow. Found the entrance to an apandoned restuarant with a good size parking lot and got to play for a while. Was very nice... although this morning on the way to work my car had a pretty nasty shimmy above 40MPH. I'm hoping it was just the ice thats frozen to the undercarriage and inside of my rims throwing my tire balancing off. Ill find out tonight on my way home

    god damn people that cannot drive in the snow, I ended up lightly clipping a person in front of me yesterday from their increable driving skills looks like very minor damage but gives me a good reason to have the front bumper repainted to get out all of the chips from stones

    so i guess i take that back. After saying that i jumped in the car to head to the girlfriends and only made it about a half a block. I came back to my house, and put my blizzaks on in the middle of the street. It was nine at night and snowing like crazy. blizzaks are so awesome.
