Just acquired the 03 TT. Apparently there is no Nav CD. Where the hell is the slot for it. There is nothing apparent in the trunk or under the passenger seat. Also if I do find it where is the most cost effective way to get a nav CD? Is there any way to copy the CD from my 04 Cayenne Turbo? Thank you in advance
rhart replied to rhart's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I bought a Box S but can't get seat back far enough. Put it on Craigs last night and will get a C2. I sold my 02 Turbo because I didn't like the way it cornered tho I wasn't tracking the car. 07 Turbo was better but still heavy. Think I'll get the C2 per the suggestions here. If a C4 falls in my lap maybe I'll do it since I'll be on the track more than AX. (If anyone wants a really nice 03 Box S for 17,500 lemme know. Pristine car only tracked today and next Sunday.) Preach it brother! On an open track the C2's on-throttle oversteer and lighter steering make for a more thrilling ride in my opinion. And the same driver in both cars--having mastered the C2's capabilities--might be slower in the C4 with its extra weight. In the autocross the C4 will feel as heavy as it is. I've autocrossed a Turbo and on a tight AX course the performance is probably similar to a C4, it was just terrible. Both will scrub in the AX as jperquin suggests. So you can take the advice of some here and eat half your tires with camber adjustments, or get a Boxster and have it both ways. :) C4 is rarer than C2 and may cost more as a result. C4 is also harder to find in non-cab, non-Tip configuration than C2 is. Bottom line: buy what you like, then concentrate on improving the driver. Think about this: most F1 drivers can hop into any car on any course, no matter how mismatched, and turn out a consistent lap time. Since most of us mortals are far below this capability I'd pick up the best example of C2 or C4 your money can buy and use it to work your way to 10/10ths. Mark
rhart replied to rhart's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So all things being equal will the C2 go thru a tight Autocross course as fast as a C4? The better driver is always faster. I think I knew that going into the question. I would appreciate other opinions on this.
rhart posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Which car is faster at Laguna Seca, 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive Which car is faster thru the cones on autocross 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive. Also since I'll probably wind up with a high mile (sort of) 80 or 100K mile car, will a C4 be a lot more expensive generally? Thanks in advance.
In order to gain some leg room I removed the center console (the one that holds CD's). This makes a lot of lateral leg room. I ordered the trim piece to fit over the spot to cover wires etc but it seems to be difficult to fit on the aft or rear of the trim piece. It seems like it is too narrow and that I'd break it if I forced it to spread wide enough to allow attachment. Has anyone got a suggestion for me? Thanks
Very very tight seating. This will mainly be a track car but would like it fairly comfortable to drive to distant tracks. I am going to take out the cousel but am wondering if the GT 3 or 2 seat would give more leg room. Anyone out there have one installed? Thanks
