It was -32 degrees Celsius this morning. Over -40 degrees below zero with the wind chill. Iam too damn lazy to drag out an extension cord and plug in the car even though it does have a block heater. My 1988 efi converted Justy started anyway. All the Justy's I have had are absolutely awesome when it comes to starting in very cold weather- (as long as they are EFI!) It is soo cold that it is tuff to pull the shifter out of gear when starting it in neutral. It revs at 1300 RPM's at first start but the oil in the transmission is so stiff that when I take my foot off the clutch release pedal, the RPM's drop to around 6 or 700 RPM for about 30 seconds ( IT nearly stalls). That is just from the engine trying to turn the mainshaft in the tranny which would have some oil on it. When I go to put it in gear it feels like Iam squashing an orange in the shifter trying to get it into first gear. Then when I depress the clutch to upshift the cars slows so fast it is like I jammed on the brakes. Grab second gear and trundle on down the road, bouncing on every crack in the pavement cause the shock absorbers oil is as stiff as molasses too! The pavement on the major roadways might not have any snow on it but it is shinny, This is because the asphalt is so cold that there is NO traction and even the best tires will spin with just a little extra throttle. Easy does it----NOT! ;D This is when these cars really shine. I drive like a bat out of hell cause now it is FUN!!
