Oh yeah, now that is more like it. Seen the autocar clip of the GT2 RS vs a standard carrera on a wet track?


Edit: For those interested http://www.worldcarfans.com/110122230147/porsche-911-gt2-rs-vs-porsche-911-carrera---worth-the-price

You could have one for $565,000. If they weren't all pre sold that is.

No it was getting it's pre delivery inspection, only has a couple k's on the clock. The tyres are Michelin Pilot Sport Cups, they are basically track tyres with the bare minimum of tread. They look very much like slicks from side on. I guess thats why you asked?

Out for a nice  ??? run (as in, physical exercise) on Sunday (Boxing Day) morning at around 09:30, and running up the nasty hill on Maritime Terrace just after Little Shoal Bay in Birkenhead, and saw a beautiful Corrado. I was too knackered to notice much more than how lovely it was and the nice wheels. Gave the driver a wave, and pointed at the car, just to ensure he wasn't think I was a bit 'that way'!

Spotted a Prelude having spun out at the end of a overtaking lane (last one prior to walkworth going north), having crossed the opposing traffic lane and smashed into the bank. Luckily it hit no other cars, nor anyone seriously hurt. Had to play 'slow the approaching traffic down duty' until the fire trucks turned up, to avoid further incidents.

My simply comments are that ESP 'probably' would have avoided such an accident in the first place. If you dont have it, put it on your shopping list for your next car.
No doubt as ESP becomes more installed on our base of cars on the road, the police will claim its their vigilance on ticketing cars 5km of the limit that drops the accident rate...

If the driver was driving to the conditions it shouldnt have happened. Nothing to do with ESP.

I think the point is that ESP might have prevented the accident despite the driver :)
