Right. I know my car is a weaker and older platform but when I moved to 275s stuff started breaking. I'm just waiting for it to start happening on this new build. I'll be upgrading stuff over the winter to prevent the headaches​ of breakage at events. I'm hoping this stuff lasts that long. I'll try to take it easy but no promises. Ha ha ha

Excited finally have fabrication session all lined up next early week! Flares, Wings and splitter, interior reduction, AC pump removed and race pulley install, new GT3 cup car arms install. This weekend LPR will be last narrow bodied run in the car. After that its big fat monster in need of an engine swap or a turbo. But as usual my budget has dried up due to other life priorities. May take a few years before I touch motor.

Im brining a db meter to LPR event to get some sound readings on my mufflers. Have made some mods that made it quieter but want to make sure Im no louder than GT3 or Robs GT2.

Very cool. I'm really looking forward to seeing it in Monster trim. It should be really freaking fast

Ryan at Jongbloed Racing Wheels is awesome. He knows Porsches and required offsets. His wheels are top quality. His shop is in Morgan Hill and I have watched him make wheels. It's quite a process and truly hand made. Watching him form rim halves is wild!

Its begun car up the street at Brian's fab shop . I just pinch myself knowing I have full on race car fabrication guy in my neighborhood. The race cars in his shop are wild! Wide body Cayman with full aero to emerge in two weeks. Pics of progress to come.

Huge 11 inch wheel fits nicely under new front flare too! .... just barely!
