    Porker:

    Question for the Ferrari cognoscenti: how does one access the benefits of Ferrari’s electronic side slip control? I would see it as a blanket of safety still allowing you to slide but preventing a spin for example. However with the manettino in Race, it prevents gratuitous slides altogether. Next step is CT off, which indeed lets you spin the wheels in a straight line without intervention, but the electronics cut in when the movement is sideways. Next step turns everything off altogether, which is fun but frankly a bit too much with this car in this season. Anything I’m overlooking?

    You summed up the situation- there is no in between. In Race  SSC should be less intrusive than Sport, but it is still active.

    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    Sounds like a Tesla problem which was brought to our attention by an intrepid friend here. Nice that they are ahead of it. It would suck to have it blow out at 200mph. Pardon the pun.

    It is a Ferrari, it used to break without even touching them. It is getting better though Smiley

    Speaking of Italians: I had a call from Lamborghini Italy, they wanted to know if I am satisfied with my car. 

    The caller was an Italian woman who talked to me in German with a strong Italian accent. It was the sexiest accent/voice combo I ever heard. I even told my wife (shouldn't have Smiley). I wonder if they are using specific people on purpose. Smiley Wow, if I ever divorce, I will go and look up that woman on the phone. Smiley

    They want to sell you an STO...

    Smiley Smiley I can get one anytime I want but I don't want to. No AWD, way too expensive (vs. the Performante), slower than the Performante (not by much though), no need for excessive track capabilities (not even sure the STO is that much faster but the new tires are certainly going to be interesting), the Performante is almost more than I can handle (and I can handle a lot) anyway. If I had the money to own both, I would get the STO instantly. No doubt.

    I totally get it.

    You are having a crap day and then some young lady calls you from a customer survey centre with a banging sexy voice.

    You immediately picture and imagine what you suspect she looks like Smiley Smiley

    Yep , the day just got better Smiley

    That is easy, Stefan Winkelamann, who was born in Berlin and raised in Rome.  This is why he is good choice for Lamborghini’s CEO.

    It has its wet mode which tones everything down quite a bit. It’s quite useful if you don’t want to think too much about feathering the throttle, it’s all a bit more mellow.
