  1. Here are the offset numbers labeled on the front of the wheels by the valve hole. Rears: 10 58 Fronts: 8 57
  2. I just bought a used set of 18" Carrera III 5 spoke wheels to use with track tires for my 2007 Carrera S. These (carrera III) wheels are Front: 18" x 8" Rear: 18" x 10" Stock Carrera S: Front: 19" x 8" Rear: 19" x 11" I want to buy the Toyo Proxes R888 in these sizes. Front: 235/40ZR18 Overall Diameter 25.5 Rear: 295/30ZR18 Overall Diameter 25.1 Will this setup be ok with the overall diameter being different than stock wheels/tires? Will this effect ABS, Traction, etc.? If this will not work, what are my options?
  3. I jacked up my car from the drivers side rear jacking point to flush the clutch slave cylinder fluid. I jacked the car up fairly high to get underneath to the bleeder valve. Both wheels on the driver side were well off the ground. Is it possible to damage the car flexing the chassis too much when jacking high from one corner? The reason I asked is that I noticed the windshield had a 6 inch crack starting from the bottomr right (passenger) side of the windshield. That got me to thinking and worrying that jacking the car this high from the rear driver side may have flexed the car enough to cause this. Could it have caused any other chassis damage? I have done 6 track days over the past 5 months and just noticed the cracked windshield. I don't know how long the crack has been there. I am just wondering if it is bad to jack a car that high from one corner? I did use a 3 ton harbor freight rolling jack and it was correctly placed on the jacking point.
  4. Thank you, very helpful. I got the fitting loose and was able to drain it. I had someone hold the clutch pedal in for about 30 seconds, then pumped it a few times until all bubbles were clear and then tightened and was done. Is that about right?
  5. I am trying to bleed my clutch fluid before an upcoming track event next weekend. I bleed all of my brake fluid about every other event. I have been using the Superblue brake fluid. I want to bleed the clutch fluid on my 997.1 Carrera S (2007). Is the arrow in this picture pointed to the bleeder valve? If so, does anyone have a good way of unscrewing this to bleed the fluid? It seems like it is going to be really hard to get to with a normal wrench.
