I drive into work every morning at 3:30am and the drive is a nice mix of properly banked on-ramps, wide and straight highway, winding over the mountain 4-lane highways, and city streets. One of the big upsides is because it is so early, the roads are empty and the cops are too busy pulling people over coming out of the City (drunks), that you effectively have an autobahn like drive. I get to use all four lanes to make large, wide winding turns into sweeping apex turns - practice for the track, if you will. This morning we had a nice light rain going keep the roads perfectly slick, without being wet enough to form puddles. It was nice coming out of slow-mid speed corners and just pinning it to get a slight AWD controlled slide, allowing for a higher speed corner exiting as I didn't have to worry about hitting anyone or anything. Anybody else have a nice, unpopulated commute where you can get a little loose and really get to drive your car? I'm sure the Mid-West and NE guys are getting crazy weather induced drives. Anybody else getting their 'rally inspired' drive on? *IB 'I spun out when I hit an off-camber corner in the rain with 10 other people doing it too'
