     I checked the river ... Not an inch of ice, still Lab heaven

    Went a bit further into back country.  Smoke.... frost covers ground in the morning but reaches 10 C in the afternoon.

    Avalanche territory. As soon as the snow will be here, this part will be too dangerous to pass. I do have a freeride  down way on the far left part , AVD and shuffles are a must have.

    Closer to your ridge ... still not an inch of snow

    A very useful rig - carries the Crewe and hammers too!! Our front snows arrived but we're still waiting on the rears, but down low [6,000'] we have Eric's warm weather at momentkiss

    Haha!!!  BoomBoom is a baller.

    More on the Super Fast.  46F Dry.

    Frank's evaluation is completely accurate and right on point.  

    The car is highly amusing - if you hammer it in 3rd or 4th, you can break traction at just 6,000 rpm - so like a Widow Maker, you better be paying attention and stay smooth. In Sport mode with bumpy road on, my bumpy roads still feel bumpy; the suspension is set quite stiff. Truly hammering it on some of my roads [no traffic lonely places], I would expect to spend some time airborne.

    Everyone who sees it loves it, it's not an offensive car in appearance, a quiet beauty.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    It reminds me of my GT2RS, it's very fast but I wasn't that impressed 7,000-9,000 rpm hammer down - I think GT2 RS is faster at terminal  rpm acceleration but this is my subjective estimation not having driven the RS since 2019. It's much more attractive  with out a Ricer wing, that made me cringe to drive the GT2RS anywhere in town.  It's very fast 4,000 -7,000 due to massive torque, very useful day to day. 

    My car does not have the front lifter and as usual I see no reason to have one, but I don't have parking garages and speed bumps in my life.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Further Evaluation:  I would plan a drive through Central Nevada and Death and Panamint Valleys on those nasty old narrow 2 lanes where the 996 GT2 tram lined and hunted so bad, you had to slow below 150 to stay between the white lines. It would bottom out and scrape in the drainage dips.

    The GT2RS on the same  roads would not bottom out as it had a depth of sequential stiffness that only came into play and your cognition when you were deep in compression in a drainage ditch hollow at very high speed - I believe it unlikely the SF suspension is anywhere near as sophisticated, so you'd battle for control but no way to know without running the route.  I could be positively surprised that the everyday stiffness is perfect for those vicious dips at high speed.

     I would switch to Michelin PS 4S for this test, and run 29/28 psi.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    The overall feel driving the car is one of pleasure in the quiet beauty, zesty spirited sound and fine elegant interior.  

    The new style racing seats don't fit me as perfectly as the Strad and Scud era racing seats which to me are the finest seats ever made.  I do take into account that I'm now fully fused in my spine and no one builds a seat for Titanium spined buyers. With some twiddling of the dials I got the seat to fit 90% of perfect today. The manual seat controls are easy to use and effective, no reason to automate.

    The interior is roomy, superbly crafted and the controls easy to use and intuitive.  It's a great city car, a pleasure to toodle around in doing errands as it's comfortable, very easy to enter and exit even for a cripple - Neck straight, my head clears the roof easily on entering and exiting compared to Porsche GT cars.  That ingress/egress difficulty in Porsche GTs [also due to side bolster design] has always - even pre-maximum crippled state - made them a pain in the ass for errands and short trips, besides bearing the embarrassment of associating oneself with the childish looks of the Ricer wings.

    My car has the fancy stereo, which I can't comment on as I never turn it on.

    It will be interesting to see if the GTS, when I receive it, has evolved from the SF, and smoothed some of the rough edges in the suspension. This is not a car for everyone, but if it's true that the era of the big 12s ends with Lusso, SF and GTS, it's certainly worth experiencing -- especially if you loved your Widow MakersSmiley

    You were right, it does look a lot better in pictures than it does in the configurator.

    yes, like Pozzi, it's a colour I've always wanted to try.  Have  you seen the Maserati colour Grigio nuvolari?  my 612 and Madames quatroporte were that colour.

    I don't think I've seen it in person, but a quick google search shows it to be a very warm silver? I admit on first glance and based solely on pictures I like it a lot, more than the Ingrid Smiley but hey different strokes right Smiley

    Haha Eric,

    We are having a relapse, another melt!  But the Crewe is still putting snows on the Lusso next week for winter Ferrari Fun.

    IMG_0977.jpeg


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    The Crewe takes their Lusso in for snows!  Gotta have them even with no snow for the cold compound.  We decided to go with Sottozero 3s rather than Hakka studs as our tyre guy said they are really loud on a car vs the Raptor, and we won't frequent the icy dirt roads into the mountains the Raptor travels.

    What a great car, almost sounds better than the 812, so comfortable to drive and has a snow setting as well as wet on the manettinowink
