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.

Bob,

That makes sense. I think our local CCA will be doing some driving events, I have seen the Street Survival course. A great investmest for all who attend.

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
