Sorry, Sid!

Right, Mr. G.

I am an honorary Member of the 10 000 m club, so we will have to shoot for something else.

No no, this thread is far from finished.
Success is not a goal, it's a journey.

Good morning guys.

I had a busy weekend and now a busy week.

Hey Sid, you beat the 911s that are all stock and running street tires. Your gummy sticky race tires make any comparison invalid.

But what about that superior design... and gobs more HP?

Those tires are just equalizers... Kinda like a little guy bringing a bat to fist fight....

No doubt the driver is the most important thing in going fast. Number two is a good set of stickies. For our course hp is less important than good brakes.

Idk.... If I'd had some more HP to build more speed I could have shaved of a second or two....

If I was able to go faster I would have gotten a better lap time.

Yea, and the 914 would have beaten everyone if it did not break off a few rocker arms.

And they drove all the way from Amarillo!

Yep, but just barely and not surprising since the course was so tight with so many slaloms. The NSX was on race rubber. The S2000 does run the same street tires that I do, but was a second slower than me until he put on that supercharger.

When I had my BoxsterS I ran street tires like I do now. I was always getting beat by a Z06 on race tires by 2 seconds. He only came out once with street tires and I beat him by 3 seconds.

I think that kid in the 914/6 still isn't familiar with it...


Good to hear about the tools... Parts shipped this morning after a little credit card snafu....

Wow, I am as full as a tick.

My wife is in San Francisco this week on business.

I made a batch of sketti sauce Saturday evening that, to quote a redneck friend " it's so good it makes you wanna slap yo momma for never cooking anything that good." One reason I make it when she is gone is I don't want to share

After a couple of days in the refrigerator it gets even better. I have to ration my servings or I will eat a stupid big pile of spaghetti, instead of the big plate full I ate. Burp.

spaghetti is one of the rare foods that does get better after sitting in the refrigerator.

It is my favorite meal. Better than prime rib or anything else.
