    • The guys at RPM Technik have kindly offered to host a Cayman OC meet at their HQ!
       
      Details to be refined but there will be a guided tour of their workshops, various cars on display including their latest CSR Cayman and the RPM GT4 and the RPM team around to chat about the cars. 
       
      You will also be very glad to know that a cafe van serving drinks and bacon sandwiches will be open and serving.  
       
      RPM will be opening up on the Sunday morning just for the event, for us, so can people please put their names down on the list so we can keep track of numbers for the day to ensure there is enough parking space on the day.  
       
      Time: 9am-12noon
      Date: Sunday 14th January 2018
      Location: RPM Technik, Units 6&7, Old Airfield Industrial Estate, Cheddington Lane, Long Marston, Hertfordshire, HP23 4QR
       
      More details closer to the time, but this should be a really good event to get out and beat the new year blues and blow away the cobwebs!  
       
      For those unfamiliar with RPM Technik, they are a well known independent Porsche specialist and individually they are enthusiasts.  https://rpmtechnik.co.uk

    • Porsche has created an all-electric Cayman, and its called the Cayman e-volution.  The car has been on display at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Porsche's home town of Stuttgart.
       
      The Cayman e-volution is a one-off and was first developed nearly 2 years ago.  This car has been updated with Porsche's Turbo Charging (PTC) system.  The e-volution was created wth the intention of demonstrating how electric cars can still offer sportiness, despite dynamic disadvantages such as increased weight. 
       
      The Cayman e-volution has a range of around 120 miles and can reach 62mph in 3.3sec – 1.1sec quicker than the current range-topping 2.5-litre 718 Cayman S, with the quick-shifting PDK gearbox.  One unusual aspect to this Cayman is the four-wheel drive system (although not to electric sports cars), the car is limited to 120mph and has a 38kWh capacity in its lithium-ion battery pack which provides a range of about 120 miles.
       
      Porsche says the car is a hint at things to come and that it offers a flavour of what to expect from its first production electric vehicle, the Mission E.

    • KDH Creative have created a rather interesting look on a Cayman using a liquid wrap and which involves several layers of a rubber based productive to provide a more lifelike look than a vinyl wrap would.  The look has been combined with some classic Martini style graphics for a truly unique piece of car art.

    • Take a closer look at this 356, nothing odd? Look again.  
       
      Its looks like a 356, but just a bit wider, and much bigger wheels and a then there's that hump right behind the passenger seat...
       
      It's a 356 body that's been lengthened and widened to fit over a 987 Cayman chassis. Created by the world renowned West Coast Customs, and it's featured on this week's episode of Jay Leno's Garage.
       
      Ryan Friedlinghaus, the CEO of West Coast Customs, told Leno it took around eight months to build, and no expense was spared. All the glass had to be custom-made for this car and the bodywork is all steel.  A great job by the looks and all without any fibreglass, to top it off (pun intended) it has a removable hard roof!

    • Of course.  There's always a lot of air when you change a hydraulic component.  I'll lump  doing it twice.
    • All,   Following feedback from a few members we’ve made a few changes to the website and the Club Contributor and Donation packages we offer.  Firstly as I’m sure you are all aware, the club is maintained by the Team voluntarily. The time the Team put in I know is appreciated and the payment is the pleasure we get from running such a great website for a great base of members cantered around the cars we have a passion for.   Additionally the Team increasingly have to dig into their own pockets to maintain the various elements of running a website and forum.  The costs of domain name renewals, hosting costs and cloud space are regular costs and some also increase as the member base grows.  We generate a small portion of the overall costs from advertising revenue, but as you may be aware we also offer club stickers, donation options and the ability to become a Club Contributor.  The latter now comes with additional benefits so that the cost gives these members who do wish to upgrade from now on some tangible benefits which include;   Promotion to the Club Contributor Group on the forum to recognise your contribution 1 club window sticker 1 standard sticker  a selection of CaymanOC calling cards increased file upload limits access to all areas of the website less adverts visible on the website   We have tried to make these changes in a way that is not mandatory for members to donate/contribute (i.e. maintaining a subscription free club and website) which is an ethos we will continue to maintain but of course we greatly appreciate everybody's contribution here at CaymanOC.  Any feedback as always is welcome   T.

    • Sorry yes what I mean't is fair enough to no bench bleed but upshot is a lot of air in the system which means a lot of manual work getting it out, as many before you will testify...
    • Bench bleeding requires operation of the plunger; this is my reservation against it.  I don't want to void the warranty, break it and end up out of pocket.  The manual doesn't say to bench bleed so I'll go for it without.   I'm yet to get confirmation of the ramp, so this may not be going ahead this weekend as intended.
