  1. Now I remember why I don't have a wing on my car....
  2. Hi Two Heads, Are you still coming to the city of churches?
  3. I ended up getting Dunlop Direzzas about a month ago and of course a wheel alignment, both at North Tce Tyres. The Boxster's balance hid the deficiencies of the old tyres very well. Now the car corners much faster than my balls will let it.

    Whoever we are a fan of, we continue to be blessed with spectacular viewing and even though Marc dominated this year, victory was far from certain until the race was finished. Sometimes the lead changed 3 times in the final sequence!!! Even when Marc had a "comfortable"lead, he was riding so hard that disaster was always possible. We have an established emphatic champion, just like Jorge, Valentino, Casey, Mick Doohan, Agostini, etc in the past. Marc has exceptional machine control at a level never seen before (I know the computers play a big part, but there is only one person holding on to the clip ons) and so far has been incredible lucky to have remained virtually uninjured. I first became a fan of Marc's when he was forced to start from last place on the grid for a Moto 2 race. From the start it was obvious that he intended to win the race as he carved through the field of 30+ riders like they didn't exist. Even when he caught up to the leaders, he didn't waste time assessing their weaknesses, he just rode straight past them and won with seconds to spare. A true champion!! Bring on 2020. Looking forward to seeing how Alex, Jack, Suzi Quattro etc etc battle it out. Pack up F1 and Supercars, boring.
  5. I work about 2 K's away from Richmond's, just off Richmond Road if you are there on a Friday.
  6. Perfect, I'll catch you on the weekend!! How good is that!!! 0419 419 424
  7. I am after a bracket to mount a one kilo extinguisher in my 986. Probably the same for a 996, 987, maybe?? If no one has one for sale, then a recommendation, please? I would guess it mounts to the front of the passenger seat.
  8. I have black flags.
  9. Thanks for responses!! Looks like they are sold, pending receipt of $$$.
  10. Thanks 2HTas, 9fan & Euge for your advice and the "Tyre" search was worthwhile for sure. Went for a long drive through the hills today, good thing the car is so balanced, cos the tyres are shite. Next idea is to get advice from Dominic at North Tce Tyres, to add to the mix.
  11. I have a manual 986S, with 18" Porsche Design 10 spoke rims, same as you see occasionally on a 996. The 8 1/2' and 7"rims are fitted with Hankook 265/35/R18 and 225/40R/18 tyres that are great for high mileage. I am after some grippy tyres and was thinking of Yokohama Advan Neova AD08. Any comments on these, or a suitable alternative. Use is commuting, spirited hills driving, occasional Hillclimb and MK.
  12. These 3 piece Simmons 15 x 8 and 15 x 7 wheels were my track wheels for my '89 3.2. In need of some paint/ polish. The tyres are Yokohama Advan AO50 225/50/15 and 205/55/15.The tyres have even wear accross the width, but are aged, sitting in the dark shed. Good for SMT's. Plenty of tread left, about 90%. Combination of lighter weight, smaller diameter make for zippy driving and better acceleration. I can sell the tyres/ wheels separately if required. Offers considered. 0419 419 424
  13. Good luck Lee. I hope the new job works out!!! Remain calm.
  14. I had the same issue with my 3.2. It's a fine line between too slack, so that the part open stops don't work and them being too firm and adding stress to the mounts in the door. If the bumps on the strap are too thick, then you risk tearing the door mounts, which are very thin, then you will need to get them welded or make up some metal plates to sandwich the fractured mounts. So, definitely grind down the mounts with a file or grounder so you don't stuff up the doors. I have some spare check stops if you grind too much off. Good luck
