WHAT DAFUQS. Why did I not know this... Dammit. It's handling in the weather fine, could use some better tires for traction, but I forgot how much easier it is to hand-brake drift in a car that doesn't have snow tires on the rear.

As for the power, the car pulls great from off idle to about 4000rpm. After that it doesn't pull for shiz. Really needs a tune because it feels like it falls flat above 4k.

Did not know this until last day i had it.

Also I whole heartedly agree, it can suck merging on short ramps, just seems to die a little bit. I loved the stereo in it.

You just have to put it in M and short shift it. Talking with Mike he said they fall on their face above 5k. On the highway if I dropped it to 5th to get around someone, (going from 65-85ish) it pulled decent. If it was in D it would drop to 4th and struggle bus.

How many miles did you put on it? I cracked 1000 on the car today, and I'm approaching 400 on it already. Lol.
