I, like many others this Thanksgiving, took to the road. I went to Louisiana, near Slidell. I didn't go Wednesday because I had to work. So, I left at 6:00 this morning. First off, I'm glad I replaced my fog lamps and upgraded the bulbs. I went to the junkyard last week and got good replacements on the cheap. I then installed Silverstar 893 bulbs. They're certainly brighter and whiter than the old 880 bulbs. This morning, it was very foggy. In some places it was near zero visibility. I don't have that much experience driving in the fog so I just slowed down as needed. As the sun came up, the fog lifted. It was a smooth trip except for ******s in SUVs and the fact part of I-10 was closed for about 10 minutes while a medivac helicopter could land at an accident site.
The car felt great. I was quite responsive when I needed to get on the gas. It might have been a combination of cool air and the lightweight flywheel. I cruised at 75-80. I didn't fill up yet but it appears I'm getting about 35mpg. Not bad. The car drifts a bit so I'll take it to NTB under the alignment plan I have. Well worth the money. All in all, a good trip for the SC2.
