What kind of Ferrari do you dr

What kind of Ferrari do you drive. I have driven many ferraris in the rain, and from my experiences, I think a ferrari is perfectly drivable in rain, as long as you don't push it too hard, in which case you are sure to experience exess wheelspin and oversteer.

Talking about the weather - he

Talking about the weather - here's a funny thing.On my carb GTB I got an emission fail at the yearly MOT.It was running too rich at idle. No big deal,I changed the filter for a K&N replacement one and cut out all the internal baffles and wadding from the air box. Result - car runs leaner.All well and good. Except the next time I went back to the garage IT WAS RAINING,and the emissions figures got worse.Mmm,very strange. My theory is the 30 minute run I gave it beforehand sucked in sufficient water onto the aircleaner as to cause a kind of water block to the carbs - and so effectively chocking the car to run rich.Anyone else noticed this?

More likely the moisture was causing a misfire???

I would not think carb mix was sensitive to the moisture.....maybe so though.
