The audience is encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #failurelab during the moment of reflection between stories. A musical performance follows each story to clear the air and allow the audience to recharge. Don't let the name fool you - while the stories may be about failure, the event is really about courage, determination, and the strength to get back up.

6.4 Liter Chrysler 300 SRT: Winter Handling with RWD and a SHITLOAD of TORQUE!!!
I bought ALL SEASON TIRES (Goodyear RSA2) last month in anticipation for the snow. This car has too much torque and spins the tires under acceleration in SPORT MODE - and can barely prevent spinning in normal driving mode.
