    im so over driving my car.
    its rough, it jerky, and its so fucking light that rain and wind kick my ass all day.
    going down the interstate i have the wheel turned far to fight the wind trying to blow me off the road.
    i want something new.

    What do you want to get now then? Do you have any idea, or just something different.

    Center of gravity is a bitch. SUVs/Trucks are like wind sails.

    Wind can be quite annoying to drive in, it's been a long while since I had to compete with high mph winds though. I'd enjoy it for about 30 seconds and then start wishing for the dead calm of space or something.

    The only car I've ever drove that just wasn't phased by the wind too much was my '76 Buick Lesabre. Then again, who could afford to drive a land yacht these days?

    Get used to it. Up here, we're right off the bay so we get terrible wind. I have a 3k tc and it gets its fairshare of pushing around when crusing I-5 and such through the valleys.

    My S2000 only weighs 2800 pounds and it doesn't get blown around at all... now my 2800 pound truck does. It all depends on the shape of the car.

    haha, and its pretty sad how easy stealing it would be.

    i have access to just about every car i want.

    but then i would get fired and be arrested.

    lets see, i can get the new g37, a new or used 350z, nismo z, 08 STi, G35, or a Mazdaspeed 3.
    and the CX-9's are sweet as hell, wouldnt mind having one of those.

    haha.

    but yeah, saving up is a no-go also.

    i decided to go to school.

    so im just stuck with the honda for a while.
    im just very tired of driving it. we take my gf's car everywhere when she's with me. and it drives like a dream, not too much wind fighting and when i pass a tractor trailor i dont get blown to the side.

    I remember driving my Mom's suburban in like 30 mph winds with probably 40-50mph gusts. Now that was a bitch. It was a struggle to keep it my lane. We were going through like Snoqualmie pass on our way to one of my golf tournaments.

    my moms 04 expedition is a bitch

    You should see an xB in a strong cross wind. Holy crap i might as well just mount a sail on the thing. This is why i laugh at people with spoilers on xB s, a rectangle will never handle. I don´t care what you do to it. I suppose if you put it on rails maybe...

    Side dynamics are interesting, and regardless of the weight of the vehicle, you STILL have a side profile to worry about.

    a 20mph gust will take my 12 off the kick stand . And the xB, my ex girlfriend has one with a wing. The wing makes it so she never has to use the rear wiper. That's about it.
