Took the Z over to the dealership for the end-of-year flush and fill before storage, and drove it back to the garage with snow flurries in the air.

The dealership is a neat place; super modern and clean, well lit, and all of the staff wander about with iPads that contain things about you and the car that you don't even know... It's more like going to a lab than a garage.

I did learn today that the dealership uses the same DOT4 brake fluid as the GT-R in the Nismo (GT-R II "red cap" with a 180C boiling point) - and that for some mysterious reason even though I only have 4300 miles on the car, half the tread on the rears is gone.

I have no idea how that happened...

Rain getting settled in, so dont look like much going on next couple days-retune scheduled for Saturday.
This rain could be heading towards the Left Coast & help with the fires.

Not much fun driving home from work today in Atlanta. Almost didn't make it up one of the Hills. This is my first rear wheel drive car, won't be trying this again.

Took the opportunity for a photo op during a rare southern snow storm.

Thanks lpcalhoun, I thought it turned out well for a crappy old iPhone standing in traffic. Haha!!

Nice gains on the tune, I need to stop procrastinating and travel out to Atlanta and have mine tuned.

So today was my first run in snow/slush with the 370z. This was also first eval for the Michelins. I think they did pretty well. Gotta keep the power down or it is easy to slip in first. Still kept the VDC off...

Later will be the real run north of the Mason-Dixon.

It was pretty impressive for 90 miles from the gulf. Id say weve had around 6 inches so far and still falling in Columbia. Thanks for the compliment!
