I live in Maryland. I'm sure our weather isn't as cold as you guys. I've been driving here and there when I can. It's really hard to resist going full throttle when your tires never get warm from the cold roads.

I have cheated death twice. Track/Track cold tires on a cold road, fish tailed twice. I am very thankful that those roads had very wide lanes! :eek:

That is insane. I got trofeo r on mine and dealer told me not to drive below 45 or else I either die (no traction) or tires will crack. Now others told me it's not THAT bad but I haven't been driving. Also the car been at dealer taking care of some minor stuff last 2 weeks.

Getting it back today and I want to drive it badly.

Ah that makes a lot more sense. I currently have factory P Zeros. If I had Trofeos, I would of kept my 720S inside for most of the winter. :crying:

I didn't know mine has these tires until after the car arrived. Oh well.

Just drove mine today. That's after getting over a foot of snow 2 days ago. When the roads are clean and the temps are reasonable, drive it.

If next week's storm plays out the way it's predicted to it will be the 4th storm in 4 weeks to hit my area. The first one wasn't too bad, maybe 6" of snow. The second one, yeah the second one was a bigger deal; about 14" of heavy wet snow. Then there was the third one, from just a few days ago... 20" of snow... My only saving grace is that I don't currently have a McLaren, but all this mess has about 3-4 weeks to melt and for the roads to get clean for when my spider shows up. If not, screw it, I'm moving!

I just came back from Miami. That is a place to enjoy the car. Or Scottsdale, or LA. I traveled to all these places for work recently and wished I had my car with me instead of ubering around (to be honest, parking it would actually to be a pain).

Took the car out for two drives today in long Island. Feels so good with top open. Apparently, I wasn't the only one itching to exercise the car as I saw a few Ferraris, couple mcl, a Lambo and countless porsches. Now I need to figure out where I can really step on it without worrying about getting pulled over. I guess today being end of the month didn't help.
