    Help Please!

    I just ordered a Jet skip shift eleminator and a SLP 160 degree thermostat for my WS6. I plan to drive the car every day... even in the winter. Have I made a wise choice?

    i believe the 160 wont make much difference unless you program the cooling fans to come on at 160.....

    they suck in the snow. but it's summer-so you can get a lot of traditional driving training in before hand.

    Not a good snow car. I got caught out in mine with less than an inch on the ground. Take off with no gas, just let the clutch out, and the back end would come around everytime, and this was a slight uphill incline.

    I love my truck.

    The skip shift eleminator is a must, I just about got rear ended b/c of that POS. As for the snow good luck. I have never tride to drive it in the snow but people do and a set of all weather/snow tires could help.

    yeah man like an inch of snow and it took me about 15 mins to drive 5 small blocks, i was basically going in circles. I am looking into getting that skip shift eliminator because i drive economical most of the time and it kills to shift at 2500. Most of the time i just do 1st to 3rd

    Thanks guys. Thankfully, it usually only snows here once or twice a year. I plan to drive my dad's truck if I have to go out in the snow. I was just wondering if the 160 thermo and the skip shift eleminator from Summit was a good buy.
