  1. Yeah, totally respect the noise challenges. Usual story in that it sounds like a noisy minority. Not something I have had to deal with in the past. Hopefully the new mufflers get it where it needs to be.
  2. Thanks Timm, it was my first visit and sadly got black flagged in the first session. So un finished business there for sure. Looking forward to getting the revised exhaust on and get back out there. It’s a cracking track.
  3. Cheers Jason, yeah, feel I got sold a puppy on the weather. 😁. Sounds like you have a bit of work in front of you. No doubt see you trackside. Some Lakeside flybys a photog captured. Might be a bit loud but sings a good song IMHO.
  4. There are some updates. Myself and the car have moved to QLD. Essentially it’s gone back home. 😁. Has had one outing to Lakeside which was cut short due to it being too loud. Some new mufflers incoming. Is off to Noosa Hillclimb this weekend. The usual ongoing development. Have a cooler kit coming for the 915. I find the shift quality seems to deteriorate after a high speed track day (not so much rally sprint) so figure the oil is getting hammered. Also found the shifting was off a bit and was thinking it might be time for a 915 refresh. But took a close look at it and there was some very slight freeplay between shifter and transmission. Replaced the cup bushing at bottom of shifter (main culprit) and also replaced the wevo PSJ with a Stomski one. Kind of had lost track of time and hadn’t realised they hadn’t been replaced for 2 odd years. Spent a bit of time setting up the new joint and the shifting is now better than it has ever been. Much cheaper than getting the box out. So plan to have new muffs on in time to join PCQ at Lakeside later in June. It’s. Cracking little track. Keen to get more than a few laps this time. Clutch, if it’s Adam we are talking about the same guy. He has a sickness for rotaries. 😁
  5. I know gear oils can be a hotly debated topic. I have tried most in my 915 including Swepco. Have currently landed on Castrol Syntrax. It meets all the technical requirements for the 915 and the box is shifting the best it ever has. Gets lots of street and track use. Its also priced right (approx $30/L) and readily available. Definitely worth a try. https://www.repco.com.au/en/oils-fluids/engine-oils-fluids/gear-oils/castrol-syntrax-universal-plus-75w-90-1l/p/A9458809
  6. Guess I should have read the ad Qld you would probably get road reg as it. Might need the front half of the cage cut out elsewhere.
  7. The blue car is a WA car. Have seen it out at club events. Has been largely parked up the last couple of years. Has set some cracking lap times. Is a very well put together car. Very clean and tidy. Could easily make a great weekend hot rod, track day car or more serious racer. It has reg plates on it. Just aren’t sure if it’s rally reg or full road reg. They get the same number plates in WA.
  8. This guy. PIARC run some great days. They also have the noise restriction lifted so if you are on the loud side you don't have any issues.
  9. Nicely specced GT2RS. Weissach Pack. 4362kms. $768k. Doesn't seem the GT2RS play has worked for the flippers. Maybe Porshe Aust. reached the upper limit of what people were willing to pay for a GT car? I know a of a couple who turned down their allocation prior to inking the final docs. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2018-Porsche-911-GT2-RS-991-Auto-MY18/SSE-AD-5669214
  10. Look forward to seeing more of this....
  11. Devastating. That's my worst nightmare right there. A crash you will recover something, Fire, it generally all goes in the bin. Long drive there for the WA boys to see it end like that. Time to fit that fire bomb i keep talking about....although this seems like it kicked off very quickly. Not sure anything would have saved it. Fibreglass body parts don't help.
  12. I am with James. For small purchases I have found Autohaus to be good. Are quick and easy to deal with, can talk to a human to make sure you get all the parts you need for the job, pricing is reasonable and dispatch is fast.
  13. Got out for a little more motorsport at a local rally sprint run around the Kwinana Motorplex Facility using service road, carparks and some of the drag strip. Similar to the Sydney event. Car went really well. Main thing was being able to stay away from the kerbs and out of trouble as there is a reasonable risk profile. Managed to finish 4th outright (80 odd cars) with most of the top ten being AWD turbo hardware other than a well pedalled Z06 Corvette. So the old girl holds it own among cars that on paper should be better suited to the point and shoot stuff. The pace of the car never ceases to impress me. Super happy with the shifter and the brakes. Only one fluffed shift all night which was driver error. The shifter has absolutely transformed the driving experience. Brakes are also pulling up the car far quicker and with more feel into the heavy braking zones like the chicanes. Dare I say it, I think this car is pretty much exactly where I want it now. Plans to do a dog box have been canned. Current shifter setup really has cured what I saw as the final shortcoming of the car. Car has gone in for paint this week. Just painting the new side skirts and tidying up some of the war wounds and wear and tear of racing. Then hopefully should just be a good period of basic maintenance and just enjoy it. Also had the car power tuned on the dyno on pump 98. Can't run on E85 in the tarmac rally car class at the Rallysprints. It is running flex fuel sensor but had only been power tuned on E85 so just wanted to be sure the tune was right on the more knock prone 98. Turned out I had nothing to worry about as the ECU adjusted the map perfectly and the car ran fine with no knock on 98. But did give up approx 20hp and some torques. Seat of the pants feels slightly less punchy but good to know I can safely tip 98 in it and give it a belting without any risk. Bit of in car from the night. Only realised at the end I forgot to turn high beam on. What you can't see can't hurt you i guess
  14. I ended up just embracing Microsoft One Drive. Does cost $ but is a useful back up tool for all data and providing remote access to any of your files, and also allows you to share photos. Run the app on my phone so all pics backup plus via the app you have full access to all files you store on one drive plus you can also access from a browser.
