      Power required to hit a certain speed increases with the square of velocity (i.e. exponential). I think you might be underestimating how much power it takes to overcome drag, and how quickly it...

      I guess, as with most things in this car, it was left off for North America because of cost. I hate blank switches. :(

      I used to run 225/40R18 on 18x8.5 wheels. Putting a 225 on a 6" wide wheel would just seem silly to me. If I don't do the 19" winter setup with the stock Cadiz, I'll also be putting 205/50R17 on the...
