2011 LP560-4 Spyder / Blu Fontus
OK, I know this subject has been beaten up repeatedly but I'd probably be looking for a response from someone who has come from a rear wheel drive 911 and done the conversion on a Gallardo. I loved the handling of my 997 Carrera S (rwd) but do admit it scared me a few times hopping around in the back there, usually on an aggressive on or off ramp with a bump somewhere through the turn. (NOTE: I have never tracked a car so I am by no means a 'competitive' driver, pleasure seeking only)..... So far I have been truly amazed by how this Gallardo outperforms my old Porsche but am afraid to go backwards in terms of handling in doing the conversion...or, should I say, take some of the confidence away that an 'average' driver gets with AWD !! The RWD 911 is a great handling car so will the RWD Gallardo still outperform it. Another NOTE: I will never drive this car on wet pavement so that aspect is not relevant. I do not like the clunky feeling the AWD gives this car at low speeds and parking lots and turning. You could say try it out and change it back if it doesn't work but I'm doing Swift springs and conversion together with the alignment afterwards and hoping to do it only once.
