Small changes = Big change

As many of you know, I completed the restoration of my old 79 930 a few months back.
It was now time to get ready for the track day season next year.
Porsche club and general track days.

Changed to Hawk race pads.
Motul 600 brake fluid.
Removed the old brake lines for new SS lines.
Got a good deal on a set of B&B headers.
A new twin out muffler from Brian at Rarlyl8.
23mm and 33mm Pluged and Plated hollow torsion bars from Chuck at Elephant.
New Von shocks, level 3 front and level 4 rear also from Elephant.
New bushes and ball joints.
Lowered the car as much as I dare. (steep driveway)
A set of Dunlop DZ03G road/comp tyres. (semi slicks)

WOW, what a transformation.
After some testing on the twisty roads.
The brakes are strong and dont have the old fade.
The lag has been reduced about 800 rpm.
And the old girl is on rails.

Boring stuff for most, but the best I can do on my budget.
Look forward to posting some track video next year.
