I hope my thread was not interpreted as encouraging everyone to pull their yaw sensors. I'm just relaying what happened when I did mine. For sure, people should not perform this modification unless they have the experience and ability to control the car, and are willing to take the risk of a bad result. I did my first 15 years of track driving in a 944 that had no driver aids beyond ABS, so I felt confident enough to give it a try on the Cayman, but, even still, I took it easy until I was sure there would be no ugly surprises.
Please, everyone--be careful out there.
I fully believe that cutting out all the electronic driver aids are the best way to learn to drive on track as a beginner.
First reason is that you will most likely drive slower, because you will back off when the car start getting slightly out of shape, and then you will gradually start getting faster as you gain confidence with what the car is telling you.
With driver aids everything is masked so you get very little feedback and you fast become overconfident with your own skill set, resulting in over-driving the car and having a big off when the electronic give up on you. I have seen plenty of people with new gt3's end up in the wall on a wet track, and if the same drivers had been driving and old 996 gt3 then they would have been driving 20% slower
Lastly, you can't beat being on the edge in a car 100% controlled by the driver ;-)
