    why would they even try to get those cars up there if the road was so bad.

    After that road the clutch will be at 30%. mail

    If he had not been such a pussy about it he would have sped up (to narrow the car, everyone knows this) and saved more of the clutch.  Give me the wheel, I will show him how to do it.  With enough speed that path becomes a two lane super highway!

    This reminds me a little bit of an "encounter" I had with my 991 Turbo S in Italy (Lake Garda region). We drove through a small town in the mountains and a Fiat Uno was following us at a very short distance, I couldn't see his license plate. This guy drove me nuts (speed limit was 50 kph but he kept so little distance...). Ahead of me, the street narrowed down a lot, it was kind of weird looking house on the left, one on the right and inside a curve. Looked very tricky to drive through (very narrow and in a curve) but it was one-way only. I have a good eye for stuff like that (remember...former rally driver ), so I actually didn't slow down and went through that "obstacle" at around 55 kph. My son looked at me as if he has seen a ghost (later on he told me that he almost wet his pants) and the guy behind me was suddenly 100 m or so behind me. indecision He kept his distance after that but in retrospect, I have to say that it wasn't as tricky as what this guy was doing in the video. I would have NEVER done that, one little mistake and you have a huge damage. What for?! enlightened

    Ha ha.  There's a lovely stretch of road near me that goes through a valley with a left right downhill, 75m straight and then right left uphill (it was the river Thames in the ice age to give you a sense of scale).  Anyway, the limit is 50mph and the Cayman is capable of significantly more but I often approach it slowly to let a gap build up and then nail it through.  The number of cars that tailgate on the approach and then drop right back is quite comical.  Even my mother complains of idiots tailgating her and then falling back even though she maintains a steady 50mph through (I taught her a good line to take Smiley)
