I've pushed my PS4S pretty hard in anything over 50. I do regular grocery trips down to about 40 degrees and they are fine.

My super stiff setup may be the difference. When the temps are high the grip is great, but I don't get much traction around 50į. I may have exaggerated when I said death trap, but I won't be doing any digs...if I wanna win.

Stock tires for me as well. And until they warm up in sub 65 temps they arenít fun. But not horrid. But then Iíve never been out when itís been below 50 in them either.

PS4S in the 50's aren't terrible on a stock suspension setup. It doesn't get much lower than that too much in Central Texas, and if it does I try not to go out anyway.

It does drop below that here in Memphis. Pretty much 45 and lower I donít take it out.

Old ??
I seem to remember listening to them and Jan & Dean on AM radio while talking to my girl friend on our rotary dial phone (that was on a party line with our neighbors).

NOT while listening to 'The Oldies'.

It's simple.

Engines like cold dense air, Tires don't
Tires like warm/hot weather, engines not so much

Old people like warm weather.

When I take the Camaro out on the rare 50 degree days in the winter, I'm dropping the top and enjoying myself. Not pushing the car even a little bit.

I know exactly what you mean. I have two friends, one with a C6 and one with a Camaro with supercharger. Both are have wheel spin by just locking at the throttle when wet. When itís dry...holy moly the Car stick on the ground like glue.
