How did I find out about Dorkphus? I met the infamous TD at a PCA event a while back. He was a really helpful person. At the time his 44 was broken down (how weird ) and he was driving his Targa at VIR. He was saying how the car was getting slung around and he was having a blast and how much it was sliding around. I used to video tape my sessions and during one of TD's sessions I took the video camera out of my car and I filmed him going up the climbing esses. I emailed Todd and give him the URL to the video. Sometime after that, I don't know what I googled, but this site (http://www.dorkiphus.net/porsche/showthread.php?t=8010) came back and I looked at the post and it was him talking about the video.

Anyways, I met some really fun people and Iíve been hooked on Dorki ever since.

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU??!!

even gt3's w/ rollcage, sequential shifters, and centerlock wheels should still be considered stock. it's harder to make fun of you w/o your banana

strage sighting of teedee devoid of his gadgetry? don't believe it.

watched that video again and STILL can't see what slides he's talking about.

your eyesight would be better if you didn't play with yourself so much.

On a more serious note, I now understand what I was experiencing. Although I thought my suspension was fairly stiff at the time, I now appreciate how soft it is (which is a good thing for street use). I was also on full tread brand new street tires, not to mention the fact that I was picking up my speed quite a bit. Consequently, I was starting to experience tread squirm and lateral movement of the "tires" at "relatively" high speeds going through the uphill esses, which was disturbing to me at the time. I now know that this type of lateral movement, while disturbing to newbies, is not the same type of movement you experience before the tires actually break lose, so I really didn't have "too" much to be concerned about. I really never want to go back on the track again with soft suspensions and street tires, although that would be better than not going on the track at all.

Default Well, it's official

I now own my first Porsche. I bought Chuck's '87 cabrio today and will be picking it up next week after they get emissions handled and an AC recharge.

I'm still boggling that I own a p-car now...

Congratulations!

Remember it's not a cult it's a disease that cannot be cured.

Also remember, when it comes to upgrades, repairs or anything else Porsche it's not real money, it's Porsche Dollars.
