Re: Why?

I, too, have let up on playing around with other drivers, unless at great
distance when I hope the other fellow is hardly aware I'm around. What
caused this timidity - a freeway offramp, decreasing radius, wet pavement.

I had a BMW (to keep up the thread) on my tail and decided to play in
ideal conditions for a quattro. Last I saw of him he was experiencing
massive trailing throttle oversteer and barely managing to keep off the
barrier. I don't want such experiences on my conscience. God, it's a good
thing I didn't have a quattro back in my teenage British sports car times.
