    Weather - Which car to bring?

    There are showing a chance of rain for NVE. My track day is Sat which has the largest chance of rain. Debating between bringing the convertible with nice driving tires for cruising around or bring the ACR and hope for good weather. Any thoughts?

    Does it matter what anyone else says. Decide and live with it, or ask your wife.

    Just me, but I would bring the ACR and hope for the best. May be scattered showers or in the evening so you may get a few runs in?

    Convertible probably won't do you much good if it is raining.

    You guys don't know how cute his wife is................absolutely nothing wrong with asking her opinion as she is as much a gearhead as Littlefish ( just a whole lot easier on the eyes).
    Retired and time to get back on track ---literally!

    Rain % dropped to 20%, ACR it is. Bill knows her, she lets the reins out pretty far and goes with the flow. She has been to two events in each car. Mopar'er is right, could have her drive one but she isn't well versed on the viper. Starting to look at ToterHomes then I can spring a stacker trailer on her. She will never see this coming!

    Yes, weather is drastically improving. Those in the area say that a 20% chance amounts to very little typically, and most days look ok. (though now I jinxed us....) ;.)

    Admitting that entitles us all to refunds if it rains. As certified lawyer (online) in the Federated States of Micronesia, I am well versed in these things.

    Heh... So once again this simply validates the difference between a lawyer and a pothole... you swerve to avoid the pothole.

    People without Vipers never have to deal with these things. They are so lucky!

    I'm actually not a lawyer, just a jackass. So people often think I am a lawyer.
