I don't get the "you should drive a milder car" responses. Drive whatever you want. Recognize that the 930 is an old bucket that goes really fast, but has no traction control, stability control, abs, etc.

Two words: throttle modulation.

Why is this so difficult? If you drive with your head, and not your penis, it is not difficult at all. The only car I have tracked is my 930. I still have a long way to go, and much to learn, but keeping the car under control is not a problem. I find that the car is extremely communicative and if you are tuned into it, the limits of traction are obvious. The key is to ease up to those limits so you can back off slightly vs. overshooting them by a mile (and heading off-track).
