The Wet Bandits Club

Well, it is raining in my town right now, and right now the 202 & 250 Wet Weather Bandits Club (tm) is out in force. All these idiots are going around my corner sideways in their fully stock HQ's and XD's, thinking they are at some fully sick drift contest. I know there have been threads about this before but jeeeeez it gives me the shites. But what makes it worse, is there there are cars that actually CAN get a bit of oppy lock round a corner in the dry going mad in the wet. I know it is their only opportunity to get sideways, but this only makes it worse, due to the fact that they haven't actually had any practice. Come on you 202 & 250 Wet Weather Bandits, put it away!

We used to say it was Gemini weather whenever it would rain becuase you'd see all the Gemini drivers trying to use there only chance to get sideways.

Re: The Wet Bandits Club

With the crappy tires we have on our AU Futura, I basically have to go around the corner under 20kms (including round abouts) if I dont want to slide..

Re: The Wet Bandits Club

I love driving in the wet, not because of the sideways action, but the BA shines in this weather. The grip is astounding in the XT (prob cause of the fat arse of the car) but it just feels like the wet weather is natural for it.
