A few weeks ago we had a slew of 944’s come through the shop. There won’t be any for 6 months, then you let one in the door and they bread like rabbits! Of note, we had a 19k mile 1986 Turbo in for some age related items, along with a 17k mile 968. Two really nice examples! A 944T with a fuel leak at the pump, a 944 Auto with a bunch of oil leaks, a 944Turbo for a …

Saturday we were at High Plains Raceway with WRL for a 12 hour enduro. Lots of Porsches showed up and the racing was incredible. We were mid pack most of the day, and later moved into first with about a 3-5 lap lead for a couple hours. Car ran good 🙂

Been busy working on Car 54 to get it ready for the 12 hour WRL (www.racewrl.com ) race out at HPR this weekend. We raced 15 hours at MAM and had a great time with WRL, the car ran great, the position we got was totally self inflicted. Always next time right! We have had a ton of fun with Chumpcar (and will continue to do so likely), and WRL is a step above that without a $500 performance limit. …

A few weeks ago we headed up to MAM to run a 15 hour endurance race with the World Racing League. We had a great time with them! A few minor hiccups with some weather, a sick driver, and a offroad excursion that broke our ground wire to the lights, but we brought 2nd home in the GP2 class. Not one of our better showings as we usually win races in the pits, but that is how it goes some …

1946 Ford

We brought this old girl back from Omaha for a customer. Actually, it got dropped off on us at the track, not running, and took about 8 of us to push this heavy pig into the trailer! This is a really cool car. 1 Family owned car since new! The father bought it new in 46, and now the son owns it. It has been sitting for quite some time, so I turned Wes loose on it to work his …

Seems like we will work on just about anything around here, lol. I dunno, the Porsche projects have been fairly repetitive, so there hasn’t been anything we haven’t seen on the blog a dozen times before. Had the new Cayenne Turbo in last week for an Escort 9500ci radar system install, along with some secondary cat bypass pipes. New radar detector head and dual laser shifter heads installed in the grill. Rest of the integrated system I forgot to take …

Had this little BMW in the shop this week for a laundry list of maintenance items that it needed to be caught up on. A pile of suspension parts ready to refresh the car! Bilstein HD shocks, new upper mounts, all new rubber, reinforcement plates, etc. Rear shocks in place. And front shocks in as well. Also on the list was to replace the front belts, tensioner, and rollers to get rid of some pulley noise. New main accessory belt …

Wes just finished up a project for a customer on his brand new Jeep JK Wrangler. Driven pretty much straight from the dealer to the shop for upgrades! 134 miles on the clock 🙂 First thing to do was to get rid of those stock tires. Itty bitty. And replace with something more suitable! In order to fit the wheels, 2″ spring spacers and longer shocks were installed as well! Here you can see the spring spacer on top of …

Hoping to get another racer into the mix here, so we are getting his new to him miata prepped for some track time! It was a really solidly built car, but just needed a few things to finish it off. A miata, while not overly quick in a straight line, is a really fun quick entry level track car with a very low consumables cost. A great way to get started! First thing to do was to rip some unneeded …

Took some time last weekend to repair the leaking longitudinal slave cylinder on Valerie’s 964. It has had a slow leak for awhile now, occasionally the 4wd light would come on when driving, so it was time to tackle it. Parts have been here for awhile, just no time. The Longitudinal slave cylinder controls the amount of power to the front wheels from the transmission. They are quite expensive, but ninemeister IIRC, has finally sourced the seals to rebuild the …
