  1. Just following up on this. When my Indie drove it, he wasn't too concerned. Actually commented that the action felt very good. Anyway, I'm at 60k miles and see Autodoc listing the Sachs clutch kit at £162 which is the lowest I've ever seen it. I am going to order it and store it away and will keep an eye out for a Luk flywheel that isn't priced to the moon..

  2. A little in car from my first track effort in the Cayman. It’s sure it’ll be very tame compared to the proper track drivers on here but I was doing my best not to bend it. It’s a bit expensive for me to describe it as a track toy, so I kept well away from the outside green bits on the fast corners. My caution aside, what a machine! The brakes alone were incredible, so much stopping power and so controlled even on the big stops. I did get a long pedal after a good few laps, but I’ll get on to that later. The PDK is even more immense on track than I expected, so easy to keep the car steady on the downshifts and slip in shifts where I’d normally be waiting for an opportunity to let go of the wheel in a manual. Yes, it is less rewarding than a finely executed heel and toe, but it more than makes up for it in mechanical sympathy and time saved on up shifts. On top of that, the amount of grip was so confidence inspiring, as the day wore on it just kept egging me on to do more and more, it never once tried to bite me. The (not unexpected) Welsh rain came in the afternoon and it was still impeccably mannered. Felt like it could stay out all day, even when I needed a break. Speaking of breaks/brakes, I did get a bit of a long pedal towards the end of the sessions. Nothing alarming, but definitely noticeable. I will book it in for an oil service and new brake fluid, but I was wondering if anyone has strong opinions on fluid choice? I’ve used RBF600 in the past on track, it’s been fine. Some people have recommended RBF660 and ATE Superblue - opinions are very welcome. On the oil front, temps were up to about 111C at the end of a session. That seem safe enough? Thanks, Stu.
