  1. Time to wake this thread up I think... Banger 2 will be here before we know it. Being on a long weekend, it's time for me to start selling this to the family. Is there going to be anything non-Porsche there that might keep the not so obsessed members of the family interested? Food trucks, petting zoo, face painting, music, etc?

    Small fender bender - impact bumpers

    Havent heard of them but if they turn out no good, RJP in Moorabbin are also certified and have been around long enough to have had plenty of experience with older cars. They did a great job on mine.

    FOUND - old worn engine mounts - 996/993/964

    Good to know, I was wondering where to get one from. I find myself wishing I had one more often these days so will be a good investment.

    LoL, Gerard might know the story... He had an issue with incorrect torque settings. I don't have a torque spanner so could potentially stuff it also so I'd need to buy one.

    I should give it a crack. I read a recent horror story that turned me off the idea

    New 996 C2

    If you’re doing the LN Engineering bearing, it has to be replaced every 6 years.

    I have some 997 ones that are soft, not broken. Are they the same? They’re still in the car but I have replacements ready. Was going to change them myself but chickened out.

    auto Cayman track car

    I’m planning on taking my 997 tip to Sandown late December. I’ll report back. I’ve read the tip is quite impressive when left in auto mode.
  9. Well I made it down there after not much sleep and was glad I did. What a cracking day! I spent too much time yacking so didn't take many photos so sorry to those of you I missed. Well done guys on another great event!

  10. Hey guys. Unfortunately I can’t get down there in time to participate as I’ll be getting home from holidays at 2am Sunday morning. Hoping to come down and say hi later in the day but if I don’t make it, have an awesome day. It’s a crazy little track that will put a big grin on your face.
  11. I feel like I’m watching the air cooled market 5 years ago...

    I bought a 997! A 996 comparison

    Hey Al. I had Eibach Pro Kit on the 996 also. They dropped the 996 about 30mm whereas the drop is closer to 20mm on the 997. I don't think this was their intention though. I do remember the 996 coming down more than I expected. I highly recommend them though for ride quality. The additional stiffness is barely noticeable on the bumps but it definitely rides flatter in the corners.

    Time to let the cat out of the bag

    Holy cow! Look at those floors! Is that dyno in someone's lounge room???

    I bought a 997! A 996 comparison

    LoL. I've bought 2 and sold 3 cars in the last 12 months. When I decided I wasn't happy with the HSV and wanted another 911 I was almost embarrassed to tell people. In fact, I couldn't bring myself to have the conversation with my wife so I texted her to tell her what I was doing. Turns out I didn't even need to use the spreadsheet for this one. The wife was just delighted I was ditching the woggy HSV
