Aight so took the beetle to the track at MSRH yesterday and it didn’t break down.
I am seeing temps at around 248F which is higher than what I want so I am thinking about putting a second oil cooler on the front driver side, where AC is. Cuz AC ain’t really working much so let’s just take it out.
plus the cooler the engine the happier and the longer it will last.
I found the Koni+H&R springs so good on the backroads yet too soft on the track (big news!). Looked at Ohlins, priced at $6.4k - the Koni setup is not that soft after all.
ran with Kumho PS91 Tires in 18” which, I have to say, for a street tire rated 260 they were not bad at all! Will try with 17” next as I feel I need less grip to learn how to drive the 911.
speaking off, if you want to go fast you need to throw away everything you learned with FR or Mid engine cars and start from scratch. Be humble. Try new things. Spin at diamonds edge (ops). A members day, trying these things with friends on track was really the best environment. Thanks again @Hollywood
