Hello from Portland Oregon, USA - the beautiful North West


Recommended Posts

Discovered CaymanOC looks like a great resource.  Purchased a 2009 987.2 base, PDK, 100K miles.  Immediately took it to a couple of tracks.  Base engine is not too bad - will help keep me out of trouble.  Totally stock the car leans quite a bid in corners and understeers quite a bit.  On second track day dumped coolant all over track and towed it home.  Cause: ruptured water valve on inlet to PDK heat exchanger (does anyone know what the purpose of this valve is?)  Plan is to make street legal track car - items on order:  KW Clubsport, LCAs, F/R sway bars, APEX wheels, Nitto 01 tires, Sabelt 6 pt, Sabelt steering wheel w/proper paddles.  Should be fun.  Will reach out to those that are traking for some good advice.

Welcome along, plenty of advice on here from all sorts! 

Sound like you gave the car a good test to find any weak points right away, stock cars can benefit from some spacers and a good wheel alignment, which would cancel out some of the understeering issues you found. 

But then if you are changing all of that to new then a good alignment to suit the new shocks etc will see you good.
