    Blue tongue lizards...

    Most people can barely drive let alone recognise objects ahead on the road. Especially a pair of grey nomads in an asthmatic Toyota towing an overloaded caravan that couldn’t change direction in time even if they did see it. fun fact; blue tongues give live birth. I had to do a Caesarian on one. It’s weird.

    Air con upgrades air cooled 911

    i am the opposite - the retro air is a neat compact option and gets it all up the front of the car, keeps my engine bay clean (have ITB's as well), and experience with the electric aircon in the E9 showed it was good enough for a weekend drive or road trip.

    Air con upgrades air cooled 911

    i don't have the retro air system, but had a very similar setup made for the E9 (big open glasshouse). it worked quite well, not as good as a modern car system but better than a traditional 911 system (have one upgraded on the 964). i will be going the retro air system based off this, and to keep the engine bay free of clutter.
  4. yep. 2.7's were (are?) long considered a moving roadblock. now rose tinted glasses and scarcity has seen them become viable purchases. the aftermarket has kept up as well, so there are easier ways now to make the 2.7L cars able to move out of their own way. whereas before it was a lot of work and 3.6's were cheaper.. now it is the reverse. making a rev happy 2.7 with ITB's and decent engine management is much easier to do these days.

    Tyres 7/8 15 inch recommendation

    i have the NS2R's on two street cars and they are excellent value for money. the AR-1's are on a mates V8 powered FD rx-7 and he likes them. looking at my local tyre guru the hankook ventus rs-4 have a staggered 195-225 fitment. http://www.tyre-city.com.au/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=801_804

    911 Scrambler project (aka RallyCab)

    anyone planning on doing one of these builds, do it. i just spent $130 for a day on the dirt track, it's an absolute ball.

    lol this. any 911 is made to be tracked. can do it with huge frontal area if you want i guess
