  1. It snows not even a week out of the year here. 200tw year round. 😂
  2. Looks good. Good job on the bay.
  3. I like Tire Rack. Plus being able to pick up from the warehouse (15 minutes away) saves $40. Had some tires put on the S60R. GT Radial Champiro SX2. Literally the cheapest summer/200tw tires I could find. 😂 Rides softer than Falken RT615K+'s, way better in the rain than RT615K+'s but... doesn't have the turn in or feel. They will be fine for a beater though.
  4. Haven't started playing with it yet. We will see how it goes.
  5. Got some P2 trash figured I will need this at some point. 😂 Vida2Go
  6. "Take the car." Nice. I recently drove the 944 from GA to Ohio did a track day and stuff and then drove it home. Just drive the cars and they will work. 😂
  7. Adjusted the ride height bit on the SR. Put the adjustable burly boy rear sway bar in it. Not sure of the brand but was several mm thicker than OEM. Wide angle makes the rear wheels look all tilty boi.
  8. Drove it 20+ hours round trip. Ran 5 30 minute sessions. Even slept in it. Not the most comfortable car to drive long distances. The car doesn't have AC, PS, ABS, radio, carpet, sound deadening etc. 😂 IEM's + Spotify FTW. The RT615K+'s are a year old. They have a few DE's, and a few autocrosses on them. Plus a few thousand street miles. Very satisfied with them. They last but aren't the stickiest "200TW." I rode shotgun in one Elliott's track cars. Slicks > 200TW. Slicks on another set of wheels might be my next move for the 944. #doitfordale My friend Elliott's Euro RHD S2 won peoples choice award.
  9. Hilton still the go to for P2R tunes?
  10. 160k. Timing belt, water pump and PCV were done earlier this year.
  11. Auto. Not much. Maybe some springs, sways, downpipe and tune.
  12. Browsing FB Marketplace while out of town. 🙄 Back in a Volvo.
  13. I've never personally used or owned one but, know people with them. They all seem to love them. I'm considering getting one. It seems to beat the hell out of lugging jacks and stands around a car.
  14. That's kind of where I've gotten too. Tracking RWD cars is a lot more fun. But I wouldn't say no to a track prepped CRX. 😁 That car looks like a good starting point. Most I find for sale are clapped out. I find myself browsing FB Marketplace for 850R's again. Just looking for a cheap beater. I would just slap some coil-overs, sway bars, 302's with good pads and a set of wheels on it and call it done.
  15. Gotta suck to not be able to run sticky tires all year.
  16. Did another SCCA Track Night this past Thursday at Road Atlanta with Elliott. Afterwards we meet Wooley from S3 Magazine at Jerry Peters shop to pick up some wheels. Two track days and four mountain runs not looking bad. Road Rally 356 993 Swapped tow rig / shop hauler. Outlaw 356 Outlaw 356 Interior
  17. Some pics from the 944 Barn Tail of the Dragon Run Suspension: Paragon front coil-overs with 425lb Hyperco springs 30mm Sway Away rear torsion bars (re-indexed 2 splines) Koni yellows Turbo sway bars KLA front strut brace HRE 535 225/50-16 Falken RT615K+ Cup 1 Rep's 225/45-17 / 255/40-17 Falken RT615K+ Alignment: Front: -3.5° 1/8" toe out Rear: -2.5° 1/16" toe in Brakes: Stainless lines Serbo blanks Hawk HP Plus pads ATE Type 200/Amber Engine: Stock Drive train: Only944 shift lever Only944 short shift kit
  18. Took it on a mountain run. Now to change the oil and button up a couple of things to get it ready for Road Atlanta.
