I have never driven a UFO equipped car.  My car came with the G60's when I
bought it.  But I have been very happy with them. I think they are fine for
street use (car never sees the track, ice racing every now and them, though  :)

I can get the ABS to kick in at 80mph, which tells me I am getting pretty damn
good braking.  Could it be better?  Sure.  But I'm satisfied.

Just an observation.

ObBoost:  It is really freaking cold.  -03F according to the 20V this am.  I
have noticed something, and am just wondering if this is "normal".  I have the
Lehmahn chip from Anderson.  In these cold temps, boost build *quickly*.  I have
noticed that I can hit, what I can only assume is, overboost.  I can see 1.9
briefly on the dash before I get the cut out.  Once it cuts out once, I can't
see more then 1.5 bar on the dash gauge before the I get the overboost cut-out
happen again.  I have to kill the ignition and restart to reset it.  Normal?

I'm sort of wondering why I'm hitting the overboost in the first place.
