I don't blame you for wanting to do that. Some of the most fun I've had with the car was sliding it around on some fabulous dirt roads in the upper peninsula of MI.

I doubt I'll be going the route of the blue one, cool as it may be. Probably won't be gettin' crazy on the dirt roads either, at least not until I whack the first deer with it! I like how it sits now and even with snows on it, it still handles better than 90% of the car I've ever driven. Some nice summer rubber, about the same diameter, on 18s and another 150 ft/lbs of torque and I'll be pretty happy! It was nice knowing ya, oem clutch! lol

Right on, my car sits on snows as well. Apart from highway speed sponginess, the car still feels rather nice around town. You should join Michigan86 on facebook if you partake in that kinda thing. A real good group of us that will go on drives occasionally and do social events.

I love Rain Prisk's photoshops. He has some fantastic ideas.
