Last weekend we spent at Hallett Raceway down in Oklahoma.  Had a blast.  Had some rain on Saturday, but Sunday turned out to be a great day.  The usual antics followed. Most of the crew.  Where is Anker?  Thanks to Bob for the pictures, lol! After getting those dang St Louis guys out of our garage.  Maybe we accidentally kicked Anker out with them? Wes flew to Dallas to pick up a new S2, then drove straight to the track.  …

Finally recovering from a long couple of days last weekend.  We had a very successful weekend, the weather was great, the turnout was good, and though there was some damage to sheetmetal, everyone went home safe. From a Saturday session.  (working on more videos, but youtube not only kills the video quality, but also limits the length to 10 minutes, so i have some editing to do) [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_SIsKx_AZA] [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSI-0HV4J0A] The sign says it all….. Some of the GT class going …

Finished the 993TT project tonight.  Got the belts replaced, and then installed the new Rennline pedals and gauge rings. Had an SP1/SPEC 944 come in for annual inspection and a few minor repair items in preparation for this weekends Club Race at Heartland Park.  Should start knocking that out tomorrow.   Also slapped the headlights in the 911 Targa and confirmed those as good.  New alternator will be here tomorrow, so I plan on getting that installed and the oil changed …

Busy weekend here in the garage.  Had a bunch of projects show up that needed to be knocked out. I am chasing a vacuum issue with the HVAC system in the 928, and and electrical issue with the 911 Targa.   Had a 996 come in quick with a seatbelt buckle issue as well. First on the chopping block was a 996C4S for an oil change, de inspection, and brake flush. It now has ATE super blue running through it’s veins …

Knocked out a few misc. projects over the last couple days.  Lot of work this week and next with the club race/DE coming up, so it will be pretty busy for a couple of weeks.  Just got in a new diagnostic/service toy as well 🙂  All porsches from roughly 1989 (s2) to current vehicles.  Fun toy. After diagnosing a bad turn signal switch on a 93 964 last weekend, I also knocked out some mud flaps for his daily driver …

On the intial install, I found out that pretty much all our cables were too short for where I wanted to mount the traqmate and chase cam units, so we needed longer cables.  Found out the video cable is nothing more than a standard S video cable, so that was easy.  The data cable, nothing more than an ethernet cable.  Also easy.  Now the install looks a little better. With the weather being very nice today, the owner came by …

Headed out for a house call this afternoon for a good friend of mine.  The garage was full at DWR, so I packed up the tools and headed north, lol. First on the agenda was a set of Wevo engine mounts. Up next was an oil change.  Motul 5w-40 🙂  Fantastic oil. After the oil change, we swapped in pagid yellows at all 4 corners and bled the brakes with Motul. The centerlocks had really tightened themselves in there good, …

This was a car I built for a good friend of mine while I was at Imagine Auto.  We started with a new 997C2S off the showroom floor in 2005.  Rick (the owner) and I built this car into a pretty nasty track car, with the occasional street driving 🙂 I thought of this car as I have another project in the garage right now that will resemble much of this build. What we started with: I am sure I …
