  1. I'm sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just wanted to thank Lorne and Renntech. I don't come here very often, but when I do, I always find the answers to my questions. :renntech:
  2. No, I shifted with the clutch but we did also drive rear-wheel cars in that slop and I can assure you that LFB works well with RWD also. It is one of those things that I was very skeptical about it until I had a chance to see it in action and try it for myself. I also swear that you could use it a ton on the track . . . I will start implementing it very, very slowly. I don't want to hit the clutch when I am going for the brake, or the brake when I am going for the clutch, which I did occasionally in the mud. That could be a disaster on the track. I am going to Shenandoah Circuit this wee
  3. I was afraid of that. I don't want to mess with the brake pedal, because it is perfect for heel/toeing right now. Oh well . . . I tried. As always, I appreciate the answer Loren. Hi TD, Presumably you've verified that the car will let you left foot brake. My 02 with PSM won't let you. It may be that all 02s won't let you with the e-throttle. more than just a little brake pressure cuts the throttle entirely. When I rallied, left foot braking was mostly for FWD cars, and there weren't any 4WD rally cars. Which of the varied benefits of LFB were you aiming or in your 911?

  5. I just returned from a three day rally school with Team O'Neal in NH. It was great, and we learned how to left foot brake. I have been trying to practice in my '02 996, but I find that the clutch pedal is too high, which makes it difficult to transition my left foot between the clutch pedal and the brake pedal. Is it possible to lower the height of the clutch pedal so that it is closer to the level of the brake pedal (when not pushed in)? Thanks!
  6. 0586slb You are joking around, right? Of course I am not worried about temperature in the luggage compartment! However, I, like many of those who frequent this board, actually track our cars and thus fluid boil can be a real possibility. Why else spend the extra $$$ for SRF? Also, with a modern ABS system like that on our cars, there is an amount of fluid that is trapped in the system, and which will not come out with a normal bleeding of the brakes. It is more than a few drops. Is this reason to panic? No. Does this mean bleeding the brakes without activating the ABS is worthle
  7. I have PSM. Can you please provide the diagram and explain how I can both get to the relay and "jump" the appropriate pins? As always, I appreciate your help Loren. TD
  8. OK, I remember the rumor. :lightbulb: Supposedly you can jump pins on the ABS relay. In order to know which pins to jump, you need to check out the wiring diagram. Can anyone illuminate this topic a little further? Thanks, TD
  9. I know you can do it with the PST2 or PIWIS tester, but I have heard numerous times that there is another very easy way to do it without any special testers or Porsche equipment. I cannot believe I forgot the specifics of the rumor.
  10. Hello All: I use Castrol SRF brake fluid, and I regularly bleed/flush my brakes to maintain optimum performance. I understand that a significant amount of fluid can remain trapped in the system due to the ABS system. This is undesireable since having a mixture of cheaper fluid with a lower boiling point pretty much negates the benefits of paying for such an expensive brake fluid like Castrol SRF. I have heard that you can manually trigger the ABS system while flushing the brake fluid in order to get a complete flush. Is this true? If so, how do you do that? Thanks, TD in DC
  11. I am not boiling my fluid, and I am actually pretty easy on my brakes (from a comparative standpoint). In fact, I am not sure that I would recognize boiled brake fluid when it happened since my brakes have performed fine. What are signs that you are having a problem? Do the brakes start to fade progressively or suddenly? What happens?
  12. Hello All: I have two questions regarding Brakes and brake bleeding: I have an '02 996 Targa that I use regularly for DEs. I use Castrol SRF Brake Fluid (and yes, it is pricy) and stock brake pads. I also have a Motive bleeder and have read the great bleeding DIY article on this forum. Thanks Loren First Question: I have been told that you should be able to use the SRF Brake fluid for an entire DE season without any worries. I have also been told, however, that you can simply bleed the calipers to remove old fluid (rather than the entire system) to keep your brakes at an optimum lev
  13. Loren, I have been told that the 996 505 555 01 front lip spoiler only fits 8/01 and newer cars (after the front bumper update), and that it is a relatively short lip spoiler (approximately 2 to 2 1/2 feet long). I will post a picture as soon as I receive mine. TD in DC
  14. Holy Self Promotion competition. I have the B&M shifter new that I will sell for $175.
