Since a lot of people are following the rebuilding of my crashed street/track 911, I thought I'd type together a (hopefully) comprehensive list of every modification the car will have when it goes to compete in the Touring division of next year's Open Track Challenge.

Here's my list.

I really like the list, Jack... but with fibreglass doors and lexan "lift-up" windows, it'll feel a lot looser than a 911 should. Those doors will slam shut with all the authority of a Dorito!

The gauntlet has been thrown. Who dares to top that? A SoCal hot rod that follows the legacy of the 959.

Nice setup Jack, especially the doors. Adam, the doors weigh a ton Mate, when mine were off the car for repainting I almost put my back out handling them. Noah found much the same with his car.

Jack leave a little room for the big balls you'll need to run this car out. I know you wont need to look far for them!

The doors will save a lot of weight, I know.

What's the target weight, Jack?

Interesting - my '72 was 9112110703!

I feel strong urge to build my own, although I don't have the vast array of experience right here at hand. Or the cash. I've commited to restoring a VW crew cab this winter, so maybe late next year I'll be able to fire a shot across Jack's bow once again...

It will be a pretty awesome car, although that's the really result of the work of people who are a lot more knowledgeable than me. I mostly just write the checks -- the guys at TRE do the heavy lifting.

The cup holder will be carried over, although I'm considering a single-drink model for weight savings. ( )

The target weight is 2200 pounds, which is based on nothing more than hope. We haven't figured out exactly what it ought to weigh. The cage, AC, leather interior panels, the dual oil coolers, tranny cooler, the big brakes -- they all add weight. I'm not even willing to give up the bumper deco trim. (Damned vanity.)

The timeframe is two months, which will test the limits of Kevin's and Dave's shops. But we need to have time to get it sorted out for the OTC if we're going to podium in the new, tougher, class they're putting us in.

she's a craze you'd endorse
she's a powerful force
you're obliged to conform
when there's no other course

She used to look good to me
but now i find her.........
simply irresistible

Then the chorus:

she's so fine
there's no tellin' where the money went
she's all mine
there's no other way to go

Simply Irresistible from Robert Palmer's 1988 album, Heavy Nova

Definitely applies here

No offence intended Jack, but what are you going to do when you crash this one? You did a very good job of handling BB until Laguna, and that was a slower car than this one will be...... Do you *really* think you will be able to handle it?

On another note, this would have to be a very unique car.... who else would have fibreglass doors and leather seats on the same vehicle?

Its really easy to be an armchair coach.

Sounds like an awesome car, Jack. I look forward to seeing it sometime - hopefully I'll get a look when I go to TRE for the New Years' Day rally.
