Right after I "made it work" they changed the rules in SCCA and allow you to drop the floor lower. A couple of hundred bucks and you've got an extra 1-1/2" of headroom (and remember I made it work...

My sister and her partner were in Monteray yesterday, and saw a familiar face. Partner had his camera and snapped this photo with his decidedly NON-outlaw car.

Used prices are...um...rather high right now.

My 2 cents. For autocross you want power, and probably PDK. For the street, too much power might make the car less fun than something you can wind...

Who was that guy (last name started with a W? Initials might have been M.W. and went to Clarkson College) who kept claiming free stuff and never picked it up? This was about 10 years ago.

These would also be great for winter tires! Don't limit your "buyer pool" to track rats. Even if summer tires are 19" or 20", so long as these will fit over the brakes you want a nice wide sidewall...

These are great trailers! I had one for years. Lots of us learned to weld putting tire racks on these.

Are your wheels moved back 18" (which Dively would do to better balance a rear-engine 911)?

Our own Bill Miller (haven't seen him on Dorkiphus for a while). I'll send you his contact info if you're interested. I've spent many happy hours in HIS garage which may be close to what you want.

Removing seats from a 981 Cayman

How easy or hard is it to remove the seats from a 981 Cayman. I remember it was a total pain in my mid-80s 911s, but was easy-peasy in my 997.2. Would like DD with comfortable seats, but must have...

I'm with Vicegrip - those rotors look fine. I assume she isn't having problems braking. If that's the case, just drive them until they're worn down past spec.

Isn't this a $4000 seat?? With the cooling (which will not fit in my Miata) you'd eliminate the need for a cool shirt on all but the hottest days (and even then...). GLWTS. I pine for this seat!
