    Similar feeling as a motorcycle, but with mo metal for protection in case cellphone Barbie pulls out in front of you at 60 mph.

    This, and when the guy next to you is too annoying you can elbow him out without bothering to stop.

    Ah the exhilarating feeling of wind. Makes sense and I suppose safer than skydiving.

    I thought it might have to do with having the long rifle pointed out the door rather than pointed at the ceiling when hunting via 4 wheels.

    If you're doing the rockcrawling thing it helps a good bit for sightlines and tire placement.

    Watch the video below. "The tires were cold, bla bla." This happens when you don't have a clue how to drive a RWD car. I did a couple of small drift with a 300bhp BMW 275mm with low profile tires, quite sticky. When you have AMG C63 torque and power drifting becomes easy. You have more power and control over when the wheels should be spinning. Now maybe this could be possible with some E-differential s* itself but seem unlikely. This is textbook wrong action in motion. The rear gets loose and in the weight transition, you add more throttle so the cars goes the complete opposite where you want it to be. Notice that these noobs Do not counter-steer at all or are really slow. When you are slow in the transition counter steer things get bad real fast.. Dude, drifting a powerful V8 sedan is the easiest task ever, this is just logic and how things work.

    Finally got these wheels on my car but it was kind of a disaster getting them on because I went to a sketchy shop.
    First, got the wheels, went to shop, they said I need new lug nuts.
    Went to AutoZone, got lug nuts, go back to shop. Shop switches my tires onto new wheels, then realizes lug nuts are not right ones for my car. They switch the tires back to my old wheels so I can get the lug nuts. I get the right ones, then they switch my tires onto my new wheels and get them on my car.
    Then I find out later they didn't put my tire pressure monitors in but at this point I don't care I give up.
    Looks nice though.
