    6%-8% is not out of line if you look back to pre-2008 levels for mortgage rates. We're going to see at least 0.5% hike at the next BoC meeting, maybe even .75% and then continued hikes for the rest...

    I like the karts idea... but I was thinking that most of these teams also have affiliated GT3 cars they could run.

    In terms of the racing or something else? In the dry, there is basically no on-track overtaking in Monaco. Last year after the first lap, there were zero overtakes. Every other track it's possible.

    I do worry about that. You can force the engine on by turning the sport chrono dial to sport or sport+, or by switching the gear lever into manual mode. I think it would be worth burning out the fuel...

    When I traded in the S4 for the Tesla I had to drive to Calgary to get it. I realized that was the furthest away from home I'd ever driven the S4. In a 2 car family one EV makes great sense.

    Agreed. They motor can be used as a big resistor for pre-conditioning, but I'm not sure if it can be used like that when driving.
