I live in the Seattle area, like Craig. Yesterday was indeed a fine day for 930 maintenance driving. Got her up to operating temp and stayed there awhile, mostly just cruising. Hit it once on an on ramp. The rush is still there
. Only got to .6 bar, but that was enough for that ol' slingshot feeling.
Every time I drive this car off the track I'm reminded about how useless most of its power is on the street if you want to stay anything near legal. Just when the fun starts you have to lift or the car feels like it will start warping time.
Made me eager for spring, though. After all the struggle I went through over the years getting this car right, it sure is good to just get in it and go, and get back with nothing weird happening with the engine or tranny or anything else. Knock on wood.
