Jaime, I like the top, but I'd like to see a full shot of the car now.

Well... the stuff we all do for forum members...

Off the ramps, rear wheels on (should have left them inside until completely dry... but anything for the folks here).

This one should be of better quality:



Car is dirty and in need of some TLC (wash, polish, wax, etc.)... I will do all that once I finish painting the front wheels (over the weekend).

Looks great. I'm definitely doing the 993 style when the top gets replaced.

Here's one from Road Atlanta this past weekend. The Saturday sprint race was wet, but thankfully the enduro on Sunday was dry.

Question

Larry-
What tires for the wetness?
Any 964 wet techniques you find interesting from the weekend to pass along to the dry-track/DE cherries? (like me, for instance)

(Pretty much of a beat horse around here what people suggest for dry condition tires, but wet's a curiousity...)

Oh, and white photographs nice in overcast!

I run the Hoosier Wets in the rain. They are fantastic tires and we were lapping only about 10 seconds slower in the rain than in the dry. The only problem is that they are true rain tires, and once a dry line develops, they will literally melt down in 3 or 4 laps. I also soften up the compression on the shocks to get a little more movement in the suspension, so I can feel the limit a little better and it is not as abrupt.

As far as wet weather techniques go, the 964 really isn't any different than any other 911. Just be really smooth and gentle with your inputs (gas, brake, steering), and take lines that keep you off of the polished sections of the track, especially the braking areas. Some tracks are fairly grainy and you can pretty much drive the standard line, especially if it has been resurfaced recently. Other tracks have really tightly packed asphault, you have to drive a definite wet line, because the dry line is so slippery. Stay off of the curbs and anything else that is painted. Oh, and did I mention to be really smooth and gentle?

thought you were making sport of me, there -- then on re-reading remembered, "oh, yeah -- slick as grease!"
thanks!

also just thought... our Brit brothers must think me quite the rube for such questions, but DE's I've attended pretty much halt on account of rain. Negotiating milky tire mists at the track, a talent most over here don't develop.
