  1. You’re putting 700+ to the ground, in a car that is only RWD. I would save on the N2O and get more seat time in the car as it’s going to take a lot of practice to drive that car at it’s full potential on a road course.
  2. Street, so I guess that I was lucky. I love the adrenaline rush, but for me, it’s not worth the risk.
  3. I sold my R6 after almost being killed for the third time. I don't think that I will make it out alive the fourth time.
  4. Thanks for all the feedback. It sounds like I'm over thinking things and that the FA20 should be able to handle track duty without blowing up and that consumables are going to be on par with an NC. @Solo_S14 Is that a ford engine? What are the specs?
  5. I recently sold my NC track rat and I’m starting to get track withdrawals. I have an FRS that has 17x9’s, OFT Tune and cheap coil overs that I could turn into a track/street car, but I think that it will be cheaper if I sell the FRS and buy a modified NC that is street legal. The NC was very cheap to track and super reliable. What do you guys think?
  6. I've had the Ohlins and the Fox suspension and they're both good, but I prefer the Ohlins. I would just get them with some softer shocks for our bumpy Texas Tracks when ordered so they're valved appropriately.

    QuickJack 3500

    Quick Jack 3500 portable car lift. These jacks were great for the Miata and the FRS, but they're a little short for the Cayman. $500 located in San Antonio, but can meet at H2R. https://www.quickjack.com/car-lift-systems/bl-3500slx-portable-car-lift.html
  8. That’s a little too stretched for my taste, but I error on the side of caution.
  9. Congratulations! I hope that mom and baby are doing well. You need to buy another P car to celebrate 😁
  10. I learned about the Porsche Tax this weekend. I tried to get pricing to install a catback exhaust and the cheapest quote came back at $350 and the highest at $600. I did what any other TJ would do and picked up the QuickJack 5,000 and installed it myself.
  11. @edison_GTI I'm waiting for you to sell me Casper 😄 . @lobster I miss the car, but I wasn't using it that often and when the Cayman arrived, I couldn't justify having 5 cars for 2 people. I may convert the FRS into a dual duty car, or sell it and buy a dual duty NC as the other car wasn't street legal. The only good thing is that a fellow TJ got a great deal on it.
  12. I sold my NC track rat and have some NEW in box brake pads left. Front HAWK DTC-60 $100 SOLD Rear HAWK DTC-60 $90 SOLD Rear HAWK DTC-30 $85 shipped
  13. I thought that the water pump issues were on the 987, are the 981's also having the same problem? Mike, they added a digital gauge with oil pressure and oil temperature to the 981, which I'm happy for. My track rat is a Miata, so the Cayman will be mostly reserved for COTA. http://www.porscheownersmanuals.com/2014-cayman-manual/9/102/Cockpit-Cooling-system-temperature-gauge Glad to hear that. Unfortunately it didn't come with PASM. I'm probably going to do the same thing as you and add the lower control arms to avoid killing the tires.
  14. You're right, the poor BRZ/FRS/GT-86 get's no love. I still have mine as a daily driver. Thanks Rev! Congrats! I love that color, it's easier to keep clean too. Yup poor man's 911 :D... I'm hoping that ceramic coating will help keep it clean. I know that the brakes are a must but is the rest needed if I'm only doing 3 HPDE's with it a year?
