    Have you noticed any improvements in handling, traction going to the x9.5 form the x9's?

    Not to my knowledge, but the front does appear to be lower than others I've seen.. I honestly don't even know what springs and shocks are on it.. I've had the car for about a month now, and haven't even had a chance to put it on a lift or jack

    Bought the car w/ the wheels on it.. I'm gonna go out on a limb though (I may be wrong) but since it still has 275 tires on it, it'd probably be pretty similar although they sidewall may flex just a little bit less. Unfort. I cant give you a personal experience opinion though, so maybe someone else can chime in.. It hooks up good though, even though I dont launch it from a crazy rpm or anything..

    When we went last week it was 40-50 at night and 65 during the day. Perfect. I want to move there someday. My dad lives in Asheville and he loves it.

    The mountains are definitely nice. I grew up in Florida and I like it here but everytime I go to Asheville I want to move there. It's not sweltering ass hot, and I love the scenery.
