    You need a garage furnace, I love mine. -30*C outside and 15*-20*C in the garage! Working on the car in a t-shirt

    My daily driver (gm product) decided to break down just after the warranty expired. I ordered parts and will fix it myself, but for a few days I’ve driven the twin turbo axe murdering rough idling race clutch stage 3 cam car through snow storms on drag radials. Balls of steel. (Brains of mush)

    My garage is attached to my house so I put better insulation behind the sheet rock, flowed new windows/doors onto it, and cut a hole from the house to bring ducting to it. I put a manual baffle so I can block the ac coming in during summer. It’s great for winter. I go to start the cobra and it’s ~70° right away.

    I'm running M/T Street Comps. I worry about rain. I will walk, take the mountain bike, or take my kid's Grand Cherokee if snow hits down here. M/T spin on wet grass and never hurt a blade of it.

    I’ve done a lot of walking, and using of the beat up old work vehicles. I’ve actually only used the cobra on clear or damp days, but a few times I’ve caught a good flurry.

    Very hard to drive it in damp/20° days, I plan my routes very well and circumnavigate or totally avoid congestion.

    Damn! Maybe I’ll just get some classics in 17 for the rear and see how that does. Do you feel your setup will perform much better than your typical 18” setup; 305/35 or 315/30?

    Your rear suspension setup? Lowered?

    I'm not sure. I bought these off intervention302 (member on here). I know he wanted a taller tire but I'm not 100% sure why.

    I hope to have everything rolled, coilovers installed and a decent tune on the car in the next month or so.

    I'll update how they fit/perform once I get to that point.
