how the hell yall drive with a/c on?

when i drive with a/c it lags big time, when it does it kinda piss me off because i can't get out the hole fast enough only if i really gun it.

I need to drop a v8 or something so i won't be feeling the lag.

I haven't had a/c for the past 8yrs, since my first car, '86 Ac Legend.

Columbia, SC..summers average temps in the 90s, humidity in the 90%range, and heat index in the 100s.

a/c is for yuppies.

some newer cars have electric Ac compressors, no load on the engine. It bugs me how noticeable it is when I'm cruising or getting onto the highway and turn on my ac in my Si. The car falls on its face for a second.

It's a bit bothersome to do driving in the city (especially in H-town) in stop and go, but I push that little blue or green button on the right that says A/C off when I take off from the light so I will not have the lag from my a/c when I am taking off. :mrgreen:

When i was livin in the desert, my a/c button was my boost button...i,d hit the button just so i could pass someone, or get on the freeway...but now that im back home, i might pull it out...it doesnt get more than 75 really on the upper westside...go down to the southside of the island....you might die with out a/c...

And that's why Columbia, SC is the "sweatiest city" in the nation...or so I read. LOL

I don't have A/C ATM either, but I've got to get it in again cuz of the new GF. Can't have her all sweaty along with me! LOL :sweatdrop:

It makes for a good excuse to drive her car when going anywhere.

That's what I used to do with the ex.

me: i'll drive.

her: you don't have a/c.

me: ok, i'll drive your car.


and the benefits of having a crx when the "group" wants to go somewhere.

me: i'll drive, but somebody's gotta ride with the spare tire.

I've never had anyone say ok to that...

It must be a desert thing ac goes off when i get on the freeway til i get up to speed or if i need to pass someone then it goes off as well but when its 100+ its hard to live without it.

i've never been in a honda with cold a/c its always barely cool the whole clicking the button to accelerate gets old and annoying and the fact that it sounds like you're trying to race from light to light sucks!

your an idiot if you have AC and remove it in a DD. See what happens when you wanna get rid of it what kinda price it pulls. If your that worried about having AC but it hurts your power you can hit it the button off for that one second. If its making you drive so slow people wanna drive you off the road theres other problems with your car
