Grr! Guess I should have asked. I've run the Toyos on a few other cars and they were decent. However, I probably would have gone with the RE11s.

Lot's of neat stuff in Indy, especially the north side where you are. Paul was an Indy mechanic so I hung out at the track a lot. Got to see some incredible vehicles over the years. Never I my life saw someone work as fast and accurately as Paul, Indy crews were simply amazing people, absolute top of their game. Great find you have, congrats!
Thanks Sir!

Sweet car thanks for the pictures! Looks like you are lowered a bit though. My goal is to get this on the road before winter and get an idea of what else it needs for my winter project list. Suspension refresh and lowering are on the list.

I guess I'm missing those rhino horn extensions for the headlight washers?

^^^ The snorkels are pre 1980 cars only. It's good you don't have them. They are expensive to replace. But it's a signature detail on the 70's cars, so a must have for me.

Yes. lowered below Euro spec. If you want to run this low you will need RSR struts with raised spindles and shorter rear shocks when you do the suspension.

So why does an 86 have snorkels??? I love them, but you should sell them! The later style correct for your car are cheap.

Is it too early to discuss the motor? If you are going to open er up, the #1 priority should be increasing compression. There's a nice set of Motosports pistons for sale in the FS section (not mine).

^^^ HaHa. The Guards Red is a love/hate. I like the way it looks, but I even see it as an 80's color not a 70's color. It makes them all look the same to me.
Oh well a Red 930 is better than no 930...

Definitely not to early to discuss the motor. However, I've been down the never ending road of mods, finding the next weakest link before. Wound up selling the car because it was faster than I was skilled in driving it. Also, the only place to run it was the track. So, I want to just see how this thing does in stock form.

My father's good friend has an alleged 700ish wheel hp 930 or 964 that I drove. Whatever the hp it was absolutely uncontrollable. The thing I liked least though is the clutch pedal took an act of god to move.

Anyhow, my bank account likes the adage that it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow. I'm not sure how this will compare to my '77, but I'm guessing it will have enough power to have a helluva lot of fun.

Very much appreciate the info. I found the Rebel racing website today and it looks like they have some nice products. What is your setup and is there a thread you might be able to point me to?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

^^^ 79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

Warning it's 50% tech and 50% joking around playing grab ass

Sport rubber everywhere, RSR front 19mm raised spindle & custom valved, Custom valved shortened sport rear shocks, 22 & 29 bars, bump steer kit, basic strut tower brace, stock sway bars

I went with Suspension recommendations from Steve Wiener at Rensport Systems. He is a poster in the 911 Tech area and his shop is in OR. I had a couple strut issues, but the final product is perfect. Well worth the challenges. It rides smooth but does not have the soft spongy feeling anymore on acceleration or cornering. It stays flat and stable now. IMO It's perfect for a street car. I want to go for a drive now thinking about it...
