hey guys,
so as we move into Nov., the temperature here in Texas is starting to cool down. During straight ahead hard acceleration runs and during spirted driving around turns, i am experencing loss of traction.
Are the cooler temperatures related to this or do i have issues with the car?

A couple of reasons i can think of: 1 cooler tire temperatures thus not as sticky.. 2 cooler temperatures denser air more power?

thanks for the help.

I actually just noticed this waring on the dash today stating low outside temperatures

First time I've seen it I'm a new owner and this is the coldest I've driven the car.

It's getting really cold here at night in NY and I have been getting a loss of traction too. After driving the car all summer and never having it lose traction while going straight, it's a weird feeling.

It's awesome! Our cars scream in these colder temps. Set RR Off and get sideways!

What temp do you guys consider cold? I haven't feel e power increase you guys are talking about. I feel a little.
I am not talking real cold 50-70 but that still is 30-50 degrees below my summer temps.
