I just re-read my posts... I never actually said this, nice trick though - I'll have to remember this one. I could put one in for you too... but I won't.

You are right, I am on it. One of my friends is an instructor -drives Turbo cup cars (he has a 944 turbo cup). I plan on having him instruct me at Mosport - in my car... I will start reading up on it too...

BUT, I think you are making a huge assumption on my driving skills as they are now. You didn't see my line, or how fast I was going... nothing but my description of what I was doing. Pretty thin.

I am NOT missing the majority of the concepts. I get it already. Your descriptions are clear, concise and being "bright enough", I completely understand your additional condecending comments. I welcome NON condecending comments though.

I understand what understeer is. I understand fast in slow out. I understand moving hands too quickly.... I understand high performance driving instruction would allow me to perform better, and enjoy it more.

I also understand that stock, the car needed help to increase the handling to a point I would enjoy it more. I turned to Dinan and didn't try to "fix" this myself - and wreck a really nice car. It worked. The car defintely performs MUCH better than it was. It has more steering feel, quicker turn in and more balance - it is way more fun and capable.

Is there more performance to be had? YA there is.

I have the LSD, the matching rear dinan bar coming and the subframe bushings coming. I have already paid for those, so I can't wait to feel the difference with those.

Anyway, I am having a lot of fun doing this, and my pleasure at driving the car has gone up 10 fold.

I am looking into track days now in my area too - I'll try to line my instructor up.
