Aquaplane speed is mostly function of tyre pressure. The predicted speed is calculated by:

9 x (square root of tyre pressure in psi)

So for 40psi it's about 57mph.

Empirical formula so based on observations by NASA.

Having owned a F430 for the last 8 years, you don't need to be driving fast or aquaplaning to put the car in a ditch. If he/she was in Race mode or even Sport mode and blipped the car lets say in 2nd gear on a very wet road then the back end will spin out no question. Experience is key! and if you haven't got any of that then use common sense.
Not surprised that no ones picked up on this - an owner with significant experience- but let’s go on about Scooby’s :/

And here a Subaru STI Type RA absolutely belts it around some hair raising bends in the transfagarasan highway, a Ferrari would end up in the ravines.

It has been explained to you multiple times previously that you are ill-equipped to engage in these discussions.

Erm, with respect, I had responded to this already.

By pointing out that a 430 is no grounding for, and he couldn’t cope with a 218i, and he would be faster and avoid the ocean of spittle sprayed in his direction with a nice Subaru Justy.

This thread has everything to reflect the PH downward spiral. Some poster accounts must be parodies or at least you have to hope they are.

Certainly we know that they can't defy physics. You drove yours like a dick and then blamed the car. In actual fact, there's a reasonable probability that a BMW saved you from an extended hospital visit, or worse.

Makes you wonder how on earth that 320 made it to 11 years old. I mean all that power and how dangerous BMWs are in the wet.


I can't say I've even noticed and managed much faster BMWs without an issue.

I blame the M stripes on the grill and the twin exhausts, must have added 100 bhp and the driver couldn’t handle the difference

There's another T shirt or mug design idea.

Only just found this thread, I was away when it kicked off.

To be fair they did have some rather intensive tyre work needed on the space truck thing they made...

Not being a hypocrite but there’s levels to the fk up-ery

320i with m colours on the grill, wrapped black roof and dual exit exhausts, 150 bhp in a big heavy car.

I wonder how he ended up in that ditch like that, how fast was he going!
