Lol. I was just going to say, I could probably speed in a school zone, if the road is long enough.

I've owned a 1995 SWB RR and a first generation Discovery.

Currently own a 2012 LR4 and a 1997 D90 SW.

They all obviously drive/drove differently.


The '95 RR felt like a tank and moved just as slow (though felt like I could easily drive through a wall with it).

First gen Discovery was a bit doggy and handling wasn't great.

The LR4 is a monster and drives amazingly.

I don't consider the ride of my D90 to be similar to a tractor - maybe a ST is different. Doesn't feel slow, has power, not too hot, a bit cold at times but warms up in a few minutes. It's rough and a bit noisy but the only thing that feels like a tractor to me is the steering wheel. Oh, someone mentioned a Borla - yes, that totally went against all my noise abatement efforts once I installed it.

I drive it year round in NY - everyday.

The auto box in the D90 makes it less tractor like.

My truck should be on the road by the end of the month.
Took the mechanical bits from my D1 inc auto box and put a d90 body on top.
Excited!!!!
