Conti's are greezy in the wet too..
They're an okay tire dry, but once the road is wet they get slick fast. Wow, with the amount of trooper activity I've seen in the past few days on 405 I'm surprised you didn't get nailed.
Now I'm feeling really bad, Tuesday I had a guy in a mid 80's prelude keep up with me all the way to 110. I was only using 4th instead of dropping to 3rd....but still! :sad:
I keep telling myself he must've done an engine swap....can't imagine how much a WRX would've creamed me.
