Shows how loved Win 8 was.
Anything is worth a try if you have Win 8. Win 7? I wouldn't be upgrading that, the last OS that worked.
I had an original VW GTI, 10,000 miles on the stock Pirelli front tires was all they lasted. You could rotate the front to the back but then you had to replace 4 tires instead of two at a time. The mag wheels were expensive as well, broke one of those sliding into a curb in the snow. Gave up and bought studded winter tires after that. Date was not impressed. I took the spare out for weight savings to go faster.
I would do the same thing with a brand new Tesla. Hand brake 180's, drift corners the whole thing. I doubt my tires would last 10,000 miles with all the showing off. That's what this car is about.
Also why I will never own a plane. I would get bored and start doing loops or something and I would go too far crashing to my death. When you push a car too far or a motorcycle it's easy to walk away. Screw up in a plane and you drop out of the sky at a high speed with the ground being very unforgiving. No such thing as a safe air space to play in.
The high performance cars eat tires always have and always will, part of the price for having fast cars. Clutches are another problem. Exotics burn threw clutches and they are not cheap. Porches surprisingly have very good clutches, you can run them hard at a track on the weekends and drive it every day with everything holding up for many miles.
Track tires are worse mileage wise. Sticky which is what you want but they don't last long.
If you don't drive a high performance car hard then why have it??? That's why I don't own one any more. Family transport is my thing now, still fast but comfortable with all the gadgets.
Yep don't want the hassle of the ISO method but we'll see how this goes. Might just wipe the laptop out and start from scratch. I really don't have the patience for that any more.
The only thing I use the Win 8 going to be Win 10 computer for is a media center. I do have an issue with data collection just because what all I do with the media center may be questionable as to various media sources I use.
As always I'll be stripping windows down to the bear minimum I need but I do need to figure out how to turn off or block any info heading back to MSFT. Wondering if I could make a reverse firewall at the router?
Thanks for the post I'll look into it.
I guess I have to wait. Signed up when the Win 10 upgrade popped up on my laptop but it seems I'm at the end of the line.
I want to give a try because I simply hate Win 8. I got time tonight to give it a run through. See if Kodi and all that stuff plays nice with Win 10?
LOL, yes you will. No matter what you aren't getting 50K miles out of any tire on a MS.
This is the longest surviving independent auto company of all time that doesn't make a profit. Never in history has a stand alone ever made it this long.
Same people who said Win 8 was great? Actually David Pogue thought Win 8 was #$%$.
15 minutes? No just no.
That's why businesses aren't going to Win 8. Huge expensive to get your employees up to speed. Hours and hours assuming someone who knows what they are doing.
Who said it was a step forward??? I'm old enough to remember programs that had a huge amount of special buttons to push and WIN 8 was bring back that feature, at the time back long agao everyone hated having to remember combos of buttons to get anything done. Usually there was a sheet of paper taped next to the computer for a cheat sheet of what you have to press to do whatever.
Win button + R is not a step forward it is a step backwards. Anyone here over 40 will say the same thing. The original word processing software was the worst offender of that with data base software being a close second.
To be fair Fiat isn't reasonable for the recalls just the fact that they did want to do them.
