Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

I had to be traveling almost completely straight to put any power down, which is very un-Porsche-like behavior. i had a good think about my poor performance over the weekend and a lot of it had to do with traction and driving style. i think a driver who could steer with the throttle would have done...

Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

it was fun to hang out with all the porsche drivers and we had a good turn out for both of the days with drivers from all of bay area clubs. the course was way to tight for my driving style and much more suited to PacMan than cars.

AX 5 - Videos

we had a long course on Sunday that proved to be complicated for some drivers with a lot of DNF in the morning run groups. most folks figured it out and times dropped significantly in the afternoon. the course seemed to favor the Cayman cars with the top 6 street tire times going to the mid engine c...

Re: AX 4 - Videos

Thanks guys for getting this link started. You have posted some impressive numbers between the three of you! I am bringing the rear end at around 43 seconds. Here is a video of my typical run - https://1drv.ms/v/s!AvpsCl-IH8Bth5s5jRYlJWhlavQhZA. Note, I tried out my Hero 6 for the first time. Would...

Re: AX 4 - Videos

another fast and fun course. it looks like the theme for the day was to keep it clean. more than a few of us had our fastest run thrown out because of cones. we got plenty of runs but it was hard to be aggressive and stay away from the cones. the first box after the slalom was tight but after a few ...

Re: AX 3 - Videos

The course was a really fun change up! I had a blast. I wish my second gear was longer. Towards the end of the day, I had to back off the throttle going into the Chicago box, I was about the hit the rev limiter. Also through 2/3 of the slalom following the box, I was bouncing hard on the limiter. D...

Re: AX 3 - Videos

i need more practice and confidence in the fast stuff, i didn't have anything close to you guys. looks like a Teddy got second fast street tire time and Himanshu should have got second fast PAX time, that cone was down before you got to it. great job guys, especially since both of you were running a...

Re: Why is GGR not showing entry list before event?

"I gotta say - I'm not happy with the new habit of not showing the number of entries before the event is closed." i think the entry is limited to 94? i'm pretty sure it was in the announcement email and Ed has talked to us about it at the drivers meetings.

Re: Points for sway bar - #57

i agree that the wording on some of the rules is a bit vague. we are using these rules as a "gentlemen's agreement" if you make an upgrade you should take some points for it. you could find out if the parts were available in a sports suspension for your car, take 20 points (#62) and upgrade the fron...

Re: Rules proposals for 2018

yes the base points were updated to go along with the zone updates, i think. ED mentioned it during the drivers meting at our first event. the zone rules changed, not sure all the cars affected but the 2012 spyder is now with the newer spyder and there is a new zone class for the 987-981. i'm sure t...

Re: 35 vs 40 series rear tires, 987.2S PDK for auto-x

i think the taller tire is a better choice but. if you want to compete using the re71r in the showroom class you are limited to a specific width and profile. i think its 235/40/18 and 265/40/18 and tire rack does not show that the rears are available. if you are limited to an 18" wheel and want to c...
