I tend to drive outside of the grooves in the road to improve FE when it rains.

As far as cornering speed; I don't tend to slow down any. Then again, I've spun out twice on a corner well known to me due to not slowing down in the rain.

I'd estimate a car to have 75% traction available in the rain, of which, most people probably use 20%, even in dry weather. People hate to feel lateral Gs of any amount.
