  1. Picked up an 87 911 over the winter. Getting ready to roll for the season of de events. Any thoughts on an order of priority on taking weight out of the car? E.g. the air con doesn't work anyway. Any thoughts on how to do it would be appreciated as well. Lots of enthusiasm, no real experience. Lets go raci . . . er de'ing Thanks
  2. Anyone have experience with the 3M product (I think they call it the invisible bra or something). Seemed like a good idea, but I talked to a guy at the local body shop about doing the install. Said he could do it, but recommended against it. Said it was prone to discolor and crack. Any thoughts? Thanks
  3. Finally pulled the trigger on a track car. 87 911 Coupe with 16" Fuchs. Any recommendations on tires? It is intended as a track car, but it will have to get itself to and from the track. Won't see snow. I have pilot sports on my 997. Didn't know if there was something more "tracky". Also not sure if there is a good option beyond Michelin, Pirelli, and Continental. Thanks
  4. This was slightly unnerving. Driving home from St. Louis, passed a couple of those fixed radar stations (you know . . . your speed is ___) and my V1 did not go off. Anyone else have experience with this?
  5. Thanks for the replies. Seems like Radar Roy has some running fued with Rocky Mountain Radar. MGlobe, are you in a state where the laser difusers are technically illegal? It sounds like a great solution but I don't want to cause more problems by trying to avoid speeding tickets. Thanks
  6. I was heading back from a great DE event at Putnam Park put on by the Central Indiana PCA when an IL trooper hit me with a laser. First time I have seen it used in our area. So I am thinking about a laser difuser, i think there is one called the M25 Blinder or something. Then I read that they are illegal in IL. Two questions, 1 do they work? 2 how illegal are they and as a practical matter do people get caught? Thanks
  7. A few track days ago, a guy had a roof rack for his 997 that held his track wheels. Anyone seen anything like that?
  8. Thanks Paul. Any idea where I would get them? I checked some of the usual sites, but they all seemed to attach to roll cages.
  9. I was at a DE event at Putnam Park (great track in Indiana) last weekend. Saw two BMW's with 5 point (?) harnesses that looked like they were anchored using the seatbelt's in the backseat. There did not appear to be any permanent hardwear. Unfortunately I never got a chance to ask the owners. Is anyone familiar with something like this? Thanks
  10. doesn't seem like that great of a deal to me buddynino. Alas. I bought it and I am as giddy as a fifteen year old! WooHoo
  11. Yes, the light is there. I have not had one of the kids up there to see whether it shuts down. Thanks, I am digging the car. Can't find enough excuses to run errands!
  12. I think it does. It was the manual that confused me. I guess it could be as simple as letting the computer decide. It just struck me as odd that the manual says the airbag is supposed to be on if the kid weighs more than 56lbs. Something must be lost in the translation. THANKS
