Re: Thank you!

STi + very stiff suspension + very hard/stiff suspension joints <> cadillac

holy cow. for the first 3 hours, my left hand on the steering wheel, i started to feel some numbness.

so switched to the right hand on the wheel. slightly less numbness started.

for the next few hours, a constant hand switching and switching positions on the steering wheel help.

then i crossed the border from kalifornia to oregon. dayuummmm. the roads there are even worse.

gotta remember to add something to the steering wheel next long drive...

oh come on now.....I used to drive my 323GTX road race car on the street from Kitchener, Ontario to Ottawa, Ontario - a 600km (~350 mile) trip and it wasn't that bad :wink:

Full race suspension - and that's a real race suspension, not one of these silly street things that most hon-duh drivers have.

Stripped interior with cage, 1 bucket and a harness. Only the engine and heater fan to keep me company! :lol:

Eventually you get sick of the engine drone so you just drive faster and faster.....and faster and faster....I seem to remember seeing well over 110mph regularly around Kingston/Belleville where the road gets REAL monotonous.

I remember the first time I did the trip and DIDN'T sit upright in the bucket...man...my back was sore for a week!

Compared to that, my STi is a Cadillac !! So I enjoy every ride in it...

...Sporty

Funny u mentioned cadillac, I am seriously looking into CTS-V (5.7 V8, 400 hp, 390 torque). Engine taken directly from Z06 Corvette... Size of M5, price of M3...

The First Rides from the various auto mags certainly sound like the CTS-V will be a contender. But we'll have to wait for the actual test drives.

Hope Cadillac will clean up their act as having taken a friend's Cadillac in for servicing, I'm not sure I want to submit a car of mine to Cadillac service.
