I tried with some success, and some failure, at making my Spyder a great all-around sports car. Track use, autocross, cruiser, intertstate-traveller, and mountain-road-topless-fair-weather zipper. I've come to realize that is an impossible task to do it ALL WELL. The last one is my favorite use of the car.
I have finally accepted the fact that it can't do it all. I may re-gear the trans to make it a little shorter and closer for twisty and hilly work. Right now it's a decent compromise.
That's why I bought a Cayman. Different cars for different uses. Instead of a homemade Swiss Army knife I have 2 different knives now.
Parallel paths Stan. You helped me come to this conclusion. Thanks man.
