A lap in my new girly boxster


Thought I'd show off my new ride.
Just picked it up this week from the original owner. It's a 98 with 133k, original motor and trans, even original clutch.

Started tearing it apart the day I got it on Tuesday. Stripped out some carpet and sound deadening. Threw on some Pss9's, GT3 LCA's, Pagids and slotted rotors, stainless lines and motul. Whipped up some decals for an event this weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana to shake her down.

It's at 2885 with me in it for now. Still stock seat and carpet on the interior as well as the cab top.

Been corner balanced, set ride height, and aligned.

Had a great day at Fontana. We were out there with some pretty heavy metal. There was a 71 ferrari 512m(last sold for over 2 million euros!) in my run group! Lots of Gt3's and even some cup cars. I was in the L Stock boxster with top off, sunglasses on, stock seats and old pilot sport's.

Car ran great, tires would get hot and push in the middle of the turns at the end of the sessions as expected. Best was in the 1:20's, about a second off the bsx track record there so not bad. BSR is another 5 seconds.

Next stop is ax in San Diego next weekend. Then it really starts transforming.



I'll have some action pictures soon. But I have an in car video for now. In HD if you choose.

What event was this? Somehow this one slipped right by me...

This was a PCA SDR DE on Saturday. Would have been good to have you out there!
Maybe I can enter the TT on Tribute weekend and go at the roval. Needs some safety equipment before then.

I think I ran that one last year?... Oh well...
Does SDR do that twice a year at Fontucky? I'd love to hit that again prior to the POC run there at the end of the season...

I'll have to talk with you about that next time I see you. They let me run last year after running several AX event's, as well as flashing my POC STS License. I haven't run any events with them this season, so I would have to see if I could weasel my way in again... As a PCA/POC Instructor, Maybe you could put a word in for me too! Plus, I'm now a POC Instructor too....

Actually, I think it was the Sept event I drove last year in Scott Romanos' '84 Cab. I hit a 1:19.5 in his car.

I think I can handle that. Maybe a check out ride at worst case.
Not bad in a cab!

Thanks!
I think your shop has worked on his Cab before. His car is a bit of a sleeper, a sweet ride at that!
I was a bit shocked, as I beat my best time there by half a second driving his car for the first time on an open track... we'll see now though, as I've made a few upgrades in my suspension!

Eric,
The Ferrari 512F was a 1971 Scuderia Flipenetti car that once competed in the 24 hours of Lemans. I too learned a lot about watching for fast cars when passing others with him on our run group.(1st look for a red blip in your mirror) The sound made when getting passed by that V-12 through a dozen organ pipes was sweeeeeet! BTW, I got over a hundred + miles of track time, thats a good deal to me. See ya @ Fontana, please post pics of the roll cage construction when you can.

Wish there was some video with the sound of the Ferrari. Was that a V12 or one of the flat-12 motors derived from the F1 cars (as used in the 312P-B of 1974)?

What is with that goofy roll bar (on the Ferrari, not the Boxster)?

If I may ask, about how much dose one budget for a good track suspention kit on a Boxter?

Shocks, springs, arms for more camber....?

You'll be amazed at how much weight you can lose by losing the stock seats and replacing the automatic top with a simple roll bar. Then it's a slippery slope....
Pics with the 512 are SICK!

This is a rough budget for suspension that fits into boxster spec rules. You can easily spend equal to the purchase amount for the car on suspension goodies.
If I was building an all out boxster and not a spec, it would be much more.

Parts:
Bilstein Pss9's $2300 (come with springs, you could buy other rates for $500 a pair or so)
Upper strut mounts (worn at 133k) $350
GT3 Street Control arms for the front, shims, hardware $850
GT3 front sway bar $450, modify stock droplinks
Tarret rear sway bar with droplinks $450

Labor:
Free if you do it yourself
expect $1200 to $1500 at a shop

I also replaced wheel bearings at the same time.

Stock seats are HEAVY! Replacing the two seats and putting in one track seat is about -85lbs.

Auto top and all included is coming out soon. Roll bar will be more than simple.

I bought the car planning to run down the slope as quick as my time and budget allow. I hope to race it at Laguna Seca in August.
