Yea but youll be good to go when it snows. Im currently looking for cheap used wheels to put snow tires on. Next year ill just get a used 4X4 to haul the race car around and drive in bad weather but that's next year.

LOL......around town I'm only getting 14-15 since I can't keep my foot out of it, but on the highway it's up to 20-21. Those 4.10s kill my mileage.

LOL, I get 9 around town and 13-14 highway... 775whp kills my MPG, but does wonders for my SPG....

I have the MDS turned off and live at WOT

I can still get 12-14mpg's but I have to drive really slow, which should be easy for this car lol

haha well that makes sense... . I've put a few 60-130 runs on the same tank of gas and still had 20-21 averages... haha light car + stupid gearing ftw.

Damn.. I wish I could do that.. I spend more on gas than I do actually racing lol
It's also so big and comfortable, it feels like I am sitting on my sofa at home the entire time on the way there.. down the track, it's the most uneventful and leisure 1/4 mile I have ever ran .. no fuss, no tire smoke, no loud exhaust.. it just hops up and goes!

^^ clean run.. what was the ET?

Ditto.. my car launches so hard, the ESC/TC still flashes despite turning it off via the dash button. NO way to completely shut it off, but I guess it's to save my butt! lol
