testdrv321 replied to orlando_deke's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I had the first X74 set in the US, now sitting in my basement. I have to say that is was the best normal suspension I have seen. I upgraded to a full race Moton setup with a lower ride height and much stiffer springs and the performance difference is amazingly small. You can drive it to the track and then RACE it at the track. Not may suspensions, particularly non adjustable ones can claim that. PAG did their homework on this one.
testdrv321 replied to dj996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Consider them a 'disposable' item. They do help, no doubt about it, but they are designed for the larger discs and do blow alot of air into the wheel as the discs on our cars are smaller. They are still much better than nothing.
testdrv321 replied to lap's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I run 245's up front without any problems. Some negative camber may be required. I have almost -2 in the front, not sure what would happen with less.
testdrv321 replied to Costa's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Can't help with the offsets as I am running BBS 3 pc wheels, but the X74 is great and with some decent negative camber, you should be able to fit 295's. I have Hoosiers which run wide in 285 and there is plenty of room around the tire.
My 99 Boxster got all funny on me this week. I first noticed the keyless entry did not work and though it must have been a week since I drove it, then the a/c fan did not work, then the headlights. A whole bunch of the electrical systems are dead. I think I lost one of the main fusible links, but where are they in this car? I looked in the fuse panel and only saw little one. Any help?
testdrv321 replied to dj996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Either it is adjusted wrong or you need some more time with it to get used to it. I have one in my car and have 15 track days with it and have no shifting problems what so ever.
testdrv321 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Before I order a set tomorrow, I wanted to try and get some feedback from you guys who are running them. They are for race and DE only for my 996. I know they are OEM for the Cup Car so they can't be too bad. Outside of having to do routine inspections any downsides? I like the look and the repairability and the cost is competitive with similiar weight 3 pc wheels.
How come I didn't get a Dilithium storage capsule with my 2003? I got scammed! Dear Porsche, please promptly forward (1) Dilithium storage capsule to me. Thanks. Seriously, was this only in 02's or should my car have had one? I would have removed it anyway, but just curious.
1. AIR JACKS 2. No 3. No, only some minor cutting and welding and you lose the back seats and need a big tank and a funny thing that sticks out of your hood.
PCA is saying the cage is not acceptible, they are claiming Porsche did not design it for track use. I emailed them info from Porsches site that specifically shows it as a "racing cage" for "circuit" use. Any idea where I can get more info. Is the cage FIA or another organization approved? I don't want this to be the end of my racing hopes for this year. Any ideas?
I can't believe I am arguing to have the cage approved for PCA stock class club racing. What do you guys think? Did Porsche design this safe enough for stock club racing and DEs?
Thank you Gert! You are the man!
No, this is the cage.... http://www.carnewal-europe.com/cpx/p96087.jpg
