964RS vs some pretty expensive and much newer European machinery. :lol:

Dan, I think these seats match your 964 well. I saw them from the Zone swap meet on Jun 1st.

Not bad if you like a big heavy car with motor in the wrong place. Did you look at Vettes too since handling wasnt key criteria? :twisted:

So, Doctor Dan, will you be taping a number 5 onto this baby for Thunderhill?

not this season Jim. I have committed to completing this season in the tower or on grid...
Driving won't be before next season. Your car looks great...did you get all your CV, axle, flywheel issues resolved?

But eventually it will get it's taste of the track just like all my other Porsches have. :D

Sourcing some Euro spec 964 RS front and rear sways right now...they are factory pieces...very nice and adjustable. :mrgreen:

Axles are in! Also, I picked up a relatively low mileage (107,000) '84 915 last weekend, and will just hang on to it until the 901 breaks, then set it up with an LSD and the Wevo tail. Mrs. McClelland keeps sheepdogging me back to the landscaping projects, however, so let's hope that 901 lasts a while!
