I got some more 'wet' time behind the wheel last night. Dry traction is somewhat improved, but wet traction is very obvious, especially cornering. The car feels much more stable on wet roads in 1/2 G turns. ( I have a performance course I typically use for this purpose, and the Gtech is set up for the first warning at .5 lateral G'*)
