    We're going, 328 GTS....Steering rack is leaking some...it just started, but I guess it will be OK...we could use the new 2014' Boxster :D...Ferrari needs some R 12 freon also...I hope its not To Hot, or the Boxster is looking even more tempting :D :D .....I hope I can find some R-12 freon locally, .......Can't wait to run the roads again and see everyone again !!!

    Steve, you were not joking. The GT3 sucks everything through the bottom of the car. Weird that the bonnet hardly has a bug on it. Were you following a car that caused a downward draw perhaps?.

    Nope. All that duct work is functional so they kind of get sucked in. There were grasshoppers that had gone through the brake ducts and were in the wheels!!

    Sorry no intent to steal the thread.

    Porsche engineering at it's best. The way the ducting looks it will cause a lot of downforce on the front and then the rear wing will force the rear down or at lease reduce lift.
    The Gallardo not as sophisticated as the GT3 has a centre section that has no airflow release. It might sound funny to some but at high speeds I can feel this "bubble" build up and release to either one side of the car or over the centre. This causes some instability that I can feel.

    First the end of the of the Crescent, then Alonso gets a DNF, and now Ferrari's Luca Di Montezemolo gets the ax. It's just too much! My wife and I had a great time and I can't wait for our next misadventure. Chris put on the greatest driving event of which I've ever been a part. It was great meeting everyone and I'll treasure the memories forever. As a tribute to Chris, I'll improve the details as I go along.&#55357;&#56841;
