Rainy day driving question answered

If I could drive like this guy, I would not worry about rust

And this guy. Day um. What a difference a country makes. Look as they navigate through the hamlets. How many potential lawsuits would we have here? Look at the pedestrians, parked cars, parking lots. LOL. I wish we could go ripping through the neighborhood.

The music makes me want a beir!

As someone who spent his first 37 yrs. in the Willamette Valley of Western Oregon I've done a little driving in the rain. And racing, autocrossing, and time-trialing in the rain as well.

As a driving instructor for the Porsche Club of America I used to tell my students that, "Your car won't do anything in the rain it won't do in the dry -it'll just do it sooner." The laws of physics do not change just because the driving surface is wet.

I liked instructing on a wet track. The testosterone-driven idiots didn't drive as fast, so when we spunout it wasn't as dangerous.

That's where I'm at now! It's definitely rainy out here, nothing like Seattle though...

Driving in the wet is just fun, just a wee more slippery but I just be cautious and ride the power slide :P
