Me too (sort of). Though I love the idea of a Nexus 6, it's just too big. My Note 3 is already at the outer limits of how large a phone I can deal with on a daily basis (and I have pretty big...

The hood/dashboard combo also looks too short for an I-6. Those suckers are LONG. I agree TTV6 is most likely.

May seem odd, but what about golf or batting gloves? They're thin and comfortable, and designed to provide grip on a handle that's similar in diameter to a steering wheel. Cheap too, and available...

Haven't dynoed my car, but the one Dieselpower magazine tested put down 258hp and 421lbft at the wheels, which they estimate to be 300hp and 525lbft at the crank. But that's stock. I have a tune. :)
