    Wil, I saw on Pelican Parts that you once owned a 1970 Karmann Ghia, Bahia Red. Would you like to own another one? I have one for sale that I guarantee is as nice as the one you once owned. Be happy to send you some pictures.

    Sorry for the late reply...I've been out of the country for over 2 months on special assignment. Seeing you note out of original context leaves me confused, I'm sorry to say....I can't connect with the original conversation. Feel free to contact me on my email ( and I'd be happy to try again once we re-establish the topic we are talking about.

    Hi Will, I've been a 911 owner for many years but you raise an interesting point, one i haven't heard before. But, i want to take action. Where do I find the 'rubber boot'? And, what causes these things to act like cinders? Best, Steve

    Hi, Will -

    As an engineer and recent owner of a '72 RS Replica, I enjoyed your
    treatise on Spring Plate Angle Settings. When I bought the car, it was
    so stiff as to be unusable in town. So . . . out with the fat rear
    torsion bar and in with the stocker, and while you're at it, lower this
    thing. Also, out with the rock-hard polyurethane bushing and in
    with the Neatrix stock replacements.
    First, I inputted 2400# and Euro height, and got 36-37degrees. When all
    was done, it was higher than before! Next pass, I went for broke and
    used 31 degrees. Tomorrow, 28 degrees.
    Some questions: I have adjustable spring plates. These are thicker than
    the stock spring plates. The Neatrix are a very snug, interference fit
    on the mating parts. Then you add the outer one, and "stiction"
    becomes a big part of the suspension. What is wrong with my measuring? How does one minimize the stiction in the system? Thanks!
