I wondered if the odessy would be man enough to run the other systems. 

 

I’d love carbon brakes, and could be tempted by a set a sensible money, but the disk replacement cost is a worry.

 

the Recaro poles I put in saved 18kgs over the stock seats. I also run the spider 19’ wheels which I believe until recently were some of the lightest wheels Porsche made.

 

The easiest weight loss would be be drinking less red wine!

A friend of mine is selling a "used" set of ceramic disks for a bargain price if you are interested! Let me know and I'll ask him

I read an interesting article today about Porsche's view on using ceramics for track.

Are they the same callipers? I assume not.

Sounds like if you can afford the replacement discs then they are still be best option. And you get good cool points for ceramics.

A few guys with deep pockets use the Tillets in their bike engined kit cars (BEC).

 

I've tried 5 differ not seats in my car and the ear the best for my shape by miles.

That’s an easy win on weight reduction, nice work. Where did you get it from and what was the damage?

@Dougle_turbo Got it from Merlin Motorsports around £140.

Nice weight saving, I am thinking about doing the same soon. Which battery and bracket did you go for please ?

@crafty1 The battery is a Extreme racing PC950 with the bracket from Merlin Motorsports. It requires some altering to get it to fit.

Looking great!!! 

 

Wing looks like a bigger Getty? How did you find ordering it from them if it is?

Cheers, love the dairy milk purple! Yeah its a Getty cup car wing, ducktail with tall uprights. Ordering was easy, Mark was very helpful with dimensions, instructions and international shipping prices.

On the Suspension geo could you let me know what settings you went for?  Taking my track focued Cayman in for a setup soon and a baseline would be useful, camber toe etc.

 

Cheers

@Dougle_turbo Just booked Brands Hatch on 23 May and Castle Combe on 7 June. If you're interested I have a garage booked.

@pstarkey I accidentally lost the suspension geo spec sheet which is a pain, but I know camber is around -3.2 front and -3.5 rear. I can check again with the camber gauge and let you know exactly, also rear is spaced 10-15mm. I basically have Parr's stage 2 track focused geo and to iron out understeer the ride height is dropped to 9cm with a 5 degree rake angle.

Anyone done their CV joints in before? 

Parr alerted me to a small leak and I noticed some green oil weeping slowly out of the CV boots covering my KW Clubsport suspension bump stiffness adjuster and breaking it! This is about to get very expensive as I can't adjust the bump stiffness of the suspension anymore.

 

Surely this is a common issue after 76K miles? I have already replaced the right side driveshaft with a used one when changing the suspension last year, so it is strange that both have gone at the same time isn't it? 

Any advice would be great...cheers
