Same here. That thing is ugly. I was interested at first when I saw gas mileage mentioned, but that instantly became a "nope" when I saw that pic.

I finally swapped out my stock rims and tires for a set of 18x9.5 RPF1s in SBC ("Special Bullshit Coating") and Michelin PSS tires and immediately saw my fuel efficiency drop a little more than 5 mpg. Not only do they suck gas, but I really kinda hate those rims now that they're on the car. I should sell them.

I travel at off peak times (5am and 2pm) when there is little traffic. My trip also does not take me past any large cities so what little traffic is flowing well. Trucks here are required to be governed to do a max of 65 and even though some go faster it is not by much so at 75 I can just cruise on past them.

I think he may have been asking how you manage to fit 150 minutes into two hours. Some sort of reverse relativity effect? A localized pocket of alternate space-time?

LOLOLOLOL
I have not yet begun to reveal my abilities to the world!

1 Hour 50 Minutes.
Even reading it back my brain threw the hour in there since it knew it belonged.

I reckon he either works in one time zone and lives in another ........ or he spends some of his commute time in his parallel universe ......

I was beginning to think maybe Canadian time operates on a similar exchange rate to their dollar, lol. No harm, no foul, @Tcoat. Just surprised I was the first one who noticed.

Sometimes my thinks brain faster that my type can hands.

Even after you asked I still read it as 1 hour 50 minutes and thought your question was odd. Figured you just drove where it was always busy or something.
