    Cordless tools

    I used to have all Ryobi cordless tools, but I eventually bit the bullet and swapped over to Dewalt at twice the price. I did notice there were a lot of little things that made the Dewalt stuff better. Not sure how you find it, but little things were better sorted on the Dewalt. For example, the LEDs on the Ryobi impact would only come on while you were pulling the trigger, but the Dewalt stayed on for a few seconds, so if you were screwing inside a cupboard you could see without having the thing spinning. I don't think there was much of a power difference though. Have you noticed any little things like that which are annoying? I use a lot of Ozito tools at home, particularly if it is going to be used sporadically.
  4. If I were to bother driving it would be at a race track and ask em to chuck in a set of tyres too ..and a set of gloves for teh sweaty palms you will have
  5. I was in Duttons yesterday finalising on a car for a mate and was looking at that purple GT3, admiring only not tyre kicking. I have been dealing with Karl a young brit that does bargain vs some of the older guys that would rather stick to price than do a deal. Agree with @symsy plenty of margin there especially if it’s not a consignment and if it’s been in stock for a little while. i would be happy with either it’s more what’s value and preference to you. good luck.

    That's a tough one - on balance, I think I'd go for the street. It seems to sound pretty good with decent volume without being completely obnoxious. I think the hooligan sounds awesome but it's definitely on the loud side - great sound but a bit tiresome.
  9. The big D got plenty margin, for sure .. go purple and just name your price

    Cordless tools

    Agree with the the Ozito sentiment - not a tradie but have a go at home and we've built 60m2+ of decking and gutted and rebuilt an old kitchen and complete font of a house using half a dozen corded Ozito tools over about 4 years. None have failed. Their drop saws are robust, just need adjusting now and then.. Slowly moving to battery power but down the Makita path so far as I had batteries left from some older cordless drills. Will have a look at Ozito battery tools next time I'm at Bunnings "greenhouse".

    GT3 RS purchase. What would u choose?

    The purple one is a 2017. Registered Jan 2017 too so its a no brainer, go with the purple. Tell Duttons you are going to Sydney Monday and they will not let you go, so you are in the best position to get a great deal tomorrow at Duttons and it is the best car.
  13. Tough choice, follow your preference, bargain hard, not too many people wandering around with $350K plus in their pocket, buyers market IMHO at the moment.

    GT3 RS purchase. What would u choose?

    "Both colours are very 'look at me'" Any colour is "look at me" with a GT3RS! I prefer orange. Though Alvin Purple has its appeal.

    Ceramic (non-metallic) brake pads

    I fitted these on various cars, with good results. The pads were made by ATE. https://www.ate-australia.com.au/products Others by Hawk http://www.hawkperformance.com/performance-street/pads/hb290z583
  16. Hi there I'm new to this forum and Porsche culture. I plan to buy a GT3 RS and was hoping some members could help me choose between a Lava Orange RS at Porsche Centre Sydney and an Ultra-Violet one at Duttons Melbourne. I will attach the two links hoping someone may look at the option and price differences and give me some input. Both have identical milage, the lava orange one appears to be better value, list price being nearly 10K cheaper, it also has some CF and leather options the Duttons RS does not have. However, I do like the Violet colour a bit more, as well as the white instruments. Duttons said they could negotiate a bit but I got the impression they would not match the PCS price on the Lava orange one. Assuming Duttons could at least shave 4K or so off their price, it's still a lot to pay for a different colour, but given the cost of the vehicle it's not a great amount percentage-wise if that is the colour I prefer. Both colours are very 'look at me' I know, but I fell the Violet to be a bit more so. I will be travelling to Sydney Monday to see and drive the Orange RS. Do any members know either of these two vehicles by any chance? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    That was a good day! I've been thinking about how to implement Rod's back-of-the-line payment policy into our studio ever since...
  18. Agree with above, sadly not an isolated case. I've never understood this sales strategy?...

    This week I get into painting the rest of the inner parts. Another big step to finishing the paint.

    Ceramic (non-metallic) brake pads

    I want to replace the standard pads with low dust ceramic ones. I've found the rear pads but am having trouble locating ones for the front. The front brakes are the same as those on the 997 3.6L 911. The Brembo part number for the standard pads is P65014. Has anyone done this and if so, where did you get the pads? Thanks in advance, Chris

    And the guy who invented a car that ran on water, killed in a car "accident" just after refusing to sell his idea to an oil company. What a cynical bunch we are 🙄

    Gratuitous Porsche Pics

    Saw one of their development cars some years back when I was there. Had just come back from a high speed run on a nearby autobahn and was a pretty impressive thing. Got some pics somewhere.

    Like that cancer or aids doctor/professor who was mysteriously murdered after he went public with his extraordinary findings of a possible cure, and all of his files were 'stolen in a random robbery' as the cops called it.

    Cordless tools

    I've told quite a few tool snob guys about them, and they've all been impressed. I also used to use a Paslode gas nail gun before they changed to the small gas cartridges which are crap in my opinion, as it used to misfire every 5 or 6 shots. Got fed up and bought an angled gasless Dewalt 15gauge nailer which has been brilliant. I've owned that for 7 years and never been serviced until it started misfiring a few months ago, and as I need it, I bought an AEG nailer to get me by until the Dewalt was fixed. Man that was an exercise in futility! I tried the straight nailer, No good. Angled one (to do top shelves) and it leaves the nails proud of the melamine which is useless to me. Tried both RyobI straight and angled with the same results (props to Bunnings for always taking them back) so I ended up lashing out on another new gasless 16gauge Dewalt. That thing is brilliant. Light, quick and fires as quick as you can in quickfire mode and rarely jams up like Paslodes do. I lent it to a guy doing 2nd fix onsite who has 4 Paslode guns which always jam and misfire, and he has since bought 4 of the same Dewalts and sold his Paslodes off. I use the new Dewalt for fixing shelving down, and the old 15g one for other bits n pieces. That nicad (or whatever it's called) battery is slowly dying though, so I'll have to get a new one soon. I'm not a tightarse, yet I can't see the point in spending $300 on a tool when you can buy 3 or 4 of basically the same thing that does the same job. Whilst I'm here, I'll also mention my favourite tape measure, the Lufkin Multiread. As I have to measure inbetween walls accurately all the time, they have been a godsend, as the centre mesurement on the tape includes the tape housing, So there's no chance of behind 2 or 3mm out. I also mainly use a Bosch laser measure for wall to wall and floor to ceiling meaaurements which is so accurate, anyone can ensure they measure anything very accurately.
