under what conditions would one drive with the OD off?
If you drive thru town in third, it drives more like a stick car.
Especially with a Jmod.
As far as the coldness thing goes, my car came out of TC lockup the other day on my way to work; 4* outside, my usual driving style when there's no traffic...
The temp gauge was bottomed; the thermostat was hung open (since replaced), and it probably would have froze up if it had been a carburated car...
When I drove the speed limit, it went back in, and drove fine after that.
