  1. Since we only run ours on the track Sept-May, I haven’t bothered with any cooling mods and it’s rock steady on temperatures. Eventually I’ll add the 3rd rad, but for now it does well without it.
  2. Other than the GT3s, I’m not seeing many 911s keeping up with the Caymans on track days.
  3. Heck no, once those started last September they didn’t quit.
  4. We’re in! Nice way to start the track season.
  5. First 2 trucks as a teenager were 3 on the tree. First truck that I bought once I got out on my own was a J10 with a 4 speed. Only vehicles I’ve owned since with an auto were those that didn’t offer a manual option (CTS, JGC, and later pickups). My wife broke our record by getting her Cayman with a PDK versus a manual. Now she’s spoiled and will probably never go back.

    but he has the hacksaw, impact wrench, and BFH . . . and those are what I seem to use most often on mine.
  7. Not sure how I'm going to get off work that day, but I'm signed up! Now I gotta find some dang tires.
  8. You still have any room? Figured you were full up by now
  9. https://www.tracknightinamerica.com/events/1993728-track-night-2019-dallas-south-june-4 Anyone planning to attend? Wanting 1 more event before I shutdown for the summer and haven't done one of the TNIA events yet.
  10. Sweet! I’m getting the itch to upgrade my tow toy and I’m just amazed at how expensive trucks have gotten the last 10 years or so. The only new truck I’ve ever bought was a 99 RAM 4X4 SLT and I got out the door under $20K. Now I’m gonna be lucky to stay under $50K for similar.
  11. I think the 10 year old battery was toast and the OE alternator was on its last legs anyway. Both of those I’m happy to now have new, the starter is the only thing that was really unnecessary in the long run. But hey, now I’ve got a spare starter on the shelf and I know my way around the engine bay a whole lot better. And it got me another session in the wife’s car on Sunday, so not a total bummer Now I need to find one more event before it gets too dang hot and we take the summer off. Got a lot of other normal maintenance to take care of then, like valve adjustment and VANOS upgrade.
  12. Embarrassing to admit, but the old starter was fine. Swapped the new one in and no change, so I started hand by hand checking the cabling and found this. With the cover clipped in place, it hid the break in the starter cable. Relugged it last night and it starts and runs like a champ.
  13. Not to that point yet, but I am starting to get a feel for my wife’s Cayman. Other than one coil pack that was fixed between sessions, it’s been a trooper at track duty.
