Yes, I have been looking out for my best interests. I have a suit, roll bar, seats and 5-point harness. Also upgraded the brakes (Big Reds) and installed a fire extinguisher.

I enjoy driving this car, although I like my 996 soooo much more. It is so much faster, handles like a dream, stops when I ask it to, and just feels safer. The 930 is “darty” and I just don’t feel comfortable at speed. Also, lack of anti-lock brakes makes being to hot at the end of a straight a difficult situation to handle. Being too aggressive on them means a slide, and often there isn’t enough time to get back off the brakes and then back on them in time to avoid being off the track.

I know that the 996 is making me feel, look and act like a better driver than what I am, and the realization of that fact is the driving force behind my quest to master the 930.
