    911 handling

    hey all...
    everyone tells me that a 911 will handle differently to everything that ive driven and i must first learn the traits of the car before pushing it..maybe you guys can answer this... my brothers are involved in motorsport and they drive in the(mike S should know this) vodacom sports 2000 league. ive driven their cars before and they are rear engined.
    they are powered by 2litre opel motors(slightly modified) and are basically shaped like Lamborghinis(more or less, basic wedge shape).

    i know that it is a racing car and is much less powerfull,although much lighter, but will the 911 handle with the same basic characteristics ????? eg: sudden and big oversteer, huge grip,etc

    Re: 911 handling

    the 911 won't handle as responsive as those cars will, and just for the people in europe our opel is your vauxhall, it's just marketted under a different name here. my advice to you BCE, drive the car, take it easy though and slowly feel it out. of course tips will help, but nothing will compare to the real thing...

    Are we talking about the Opel Speedster (born: Lotus Elise) here? If so, FWIW, it is mid-engined not rear-engined.

    no no fritz, they just use vauxhall engines, it's a mix and match car basically

    Re: 911 handling

    go take some driving classes, try out PDE... i would reccomend it to you since you feel unsure!

    Re: 911 handling
