    Makes sense, the GT1 block is definitely robust.

    I still lust for the 996 Turbo. it's what I should have bought instead of a Camaro. Next time. Driving my wife's 997 Cab is surprisingly fun, so I could see owning a base 997 Carrera too. Congrats!
  3. Seems a lot of Nurburgring taxi companies and individuals run these. (Apex for example)
  4. Mmm, VR6 or 1.8T swap...delightful potential. I'm a big fan of hot hatches, in particular old VW. GLWS
  5. I watch this guy's videos (Turn In Track Out) he is a very fast driver and recently picked up a ZL1 1LE. I think most of his videos are from the PDR. The data overlay is cool - my only negative feedback is that the video quality isn't the best (compared to the latest GoPros and such), but that's not the end of the world.
  6. Aw man I forgot my awesome 1989 Volvo/mustang (WC-5 trans, 5.0 engine swap). 10/15 😄 Forgot my '97 GTi. sheesh. 11/16 Ok I'm listing mine now to trigger memory! 1986 Toyota Tercel, Mom's car - M (learned to drive in this one) 1979 RX7 - M (loved my first car, it fit me like a glove, was so much fun) 1987 RX7 - M 1989 Acura Integra - M 1989 Chevy Caprice - A 1983 Volvo 242 - M (4 speed with overdrive baby!) 1997 VW GTi - M (sad slow 2.0, but a fun little car) 1997 Audi A4 - A (sad face, what a horrible transmission) 1999.5 Audi A4 - M (got it right this time) (several SCCA Autocrosses, first track day at MSRC 1.7) 2002 WRX - M (auto crossed) 1989 Volvo 740 / Mustang swap - M 2002.5 Audi S4 Avant - A (sad trans again, but a sexy wagon for Spokane winters) 2001 Audi TT - M (fwd, aborted track rat project) 2008 Mazdaspeed3 - M (many track days and some TT) 2012 F150 - A (motorcycle hauler) 2013 Camaro - M (current ill advised track car) 2009 Chevy Tahoe - A (current beater) Current Wife's, current cars: 2013 F150 - A (her daily) 2006 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet - M (I drive it more than she does)
  7. Wow, awesome car. My bloated weapon of choice is a 2013 SS 1LE. I'll see ya on the track, for a moment anyway as you blow by 😄
  8. Haha well since we're sharing, I'm 5'11" and 215. I was thinking more about my 4000lb car 😄
  9. I've never had an eating disorder, but I feel like I should probably start...
  10. I wish this level of commitment was happening in my parts, a member I would be. Alas I cannot support it as a member but hope to visit from time to time.
  11. Learned on a manual, 9 of 14 I've owned have been manual (not counting spouses' vehicles or my motorcycles) Thought I'd have more notches by now 😐 first car was in 1993 (first 3 were manual: 1979 RX7, 1987 RX7, 1989 Acura integra)
  12. I have no right to be advising / critiquing your lap 😄 Thought I'd show ya a 1:30ish lap in a FWD car driven aggressively by a ham fisted intermediate skill driver (me). All I can say is be more aggressive everywhere and use all of the track that you can. This vid is me waiting for Chris to come around so I have someone to chase, so one pit out lap and one hot lap. This car had much more time in it than I could find while I had it. The car in this vid is a lightly modified 2008 Mazdaspeed3 (Cobb tune + FMIC (dyno'd at 255whp), BC Racing coilovers, NT01R 255s, carbotech pads), weight was somewhere around 3400lb with driver. At this pace with my overly aggressive ways my brakes would overheat in 2.5 hard laps. Before the NT01R I ran smaller 235 Dunlop starspecs and my best times were 1.32, with easy laps in the 1.33 and 1.34, the wider NT01r netted just over 2s to my PB. If I ever get my car back I'll get some new laps/vids in the Camaro. The track surface is a little different now than it was in 2010
  13. @Vorshlag-Fair Any advice for the narrow body C6? I know your answer is always to run the widest that will fit! 😄
  14. That there is the easy button.
  15. I just realized I misread this about the gen 5 Camaro, it was for the Z/28 prep sheet, and it's talking about for the hood vent itself. In my head I translated that to rain guard at the windshield. Yeah I used to be ace at reading comprehension. "Reduce the coolant/water mixture to a 30/70 mix and increase underhood airflow by removing the water deflector on the engine side of the hood scoop"
