Think so? How bout we set a date to meet out at HPR and see who's tail wags the most when they cross the finish line first?

There seems to be a lot of that "a convertible followed me home, can I keep it?" going around these days. Heres mine, note this is a file photo but it is a 2006 911 Cab in the same color as mine.

@randy - I was specifically referencing throttle oversteer, and if thats a c4, mine won't compete. 4wd was the equalizer in the 911's, ever since the 959. (which I have driven, and is like being held by a caring grandmother whilst riding a very smooth amusement park ride)

Throttle oversteer is fun, snap oversteer from throttle lift....no so much. I love hanging the back of the turbo out around turns, and the AWD makes it so predictable.

Very sweet. I need to come hang out so we can go for a ride, JH. I'll buy you a beer at a cool bar.
