True statement. I have gotten into the habit of doing all my Google searches as "Porsche 911 3.2" since the year is too limiting, and I hate typing Carrera, and not everyone uses that qualifier.

And other people limit their searches using keyword ďg50Ē because they donít want to look at any 915 cars.

I have met several people from this forum, and have gone on several drives.

NYNick was mocking me when my massive jump cable clamps would not fit in the cavity.
As if I don't know how to jump a car battery. Whatever to that dude, on my ignore list.

As this thread is a bit sideways would it be ok to discuss my g50-50 89 Turbo?

If we can only be so lucky.

I drove 901 and 915 cars for years. The G50 IMO is just so much better. In fact I have three cars with G50 trans one has a G50/05 one a G50/52 and the other a G50/30. I also have a spare G50/64 a G50/05 and a G50/20. With varying G50 parts.

Did I mention how superior the G50 was over the 915. Not that the 915 is a bad box. It just isn't a G50.

I think G-fiddy owners are a superior bunch; I strive to own another G-fiddy one day...

In racing itís about the next step and best path to Pro level. Miata racing has factory support and a teen challenge series. Iíd put him in wheelbarrow racing if it were the way to go.

Sorry Deez, I thought you were in the driver's seat. Sounds like you have a son driver, so understand now. Also I get you on cost to return ratio via racing. I have never owned one or even touched one. I'm like Shultz on Hogan's Heros i.e. I know nothing -- about them!


Incidentally, I might have an old contact that might be useful? AUS/JAP or Mazda Speed. Same person, Steve Thatcher in Sydney Australia. He rented a room in my house 99- 2001. He was the biggest used parts supplier to AUS then @ 70 containers a year. He had to vacate due to economic reasons then e.g. Kyoto protocol and recessionary factors. He still does containers out of Nagano Prefecture to this day.

Back then I stayed at his house on a trip, met his customers in AUS. He was well into those Miata cars then, I don't know about now. I haven't spoken to him in years! Still have his number though. Even after he left I sent him a couple Porsche 911 and an Evo Lancer 5 which they raced in Tasmania, not to mention all the gems he got while living here. I would say he's getting older now, so don't know what he's up to. Not that I care. He was dead into those Miata though, and if he still is, he would have some good info or contacts still that might be of benefit. Check out those names if you want. If you need me in Japan for parts I can always try in time of need. At the moment, I know Nothing!

Yes!
Pardon my ignorance, but what would a G50-50, and an R50-50 have in common, or different? Are ratios similar or that different?

Oops! Seems like the Sug doesn't have armadillo skin after all Nick. Maybe an apology is in order for the mock in Sugars eyes. Maybe then he'd flip the bill at Starbucks. Just a thought..

Matt,

I was thinking of asking you to help me put a G50 into a Dump Truck but realized I may never be able to jump start it.

Itís definitely a turbo transmission with an extra gear. Iíve never driven a 6 speed 930 transmission, canít imagine Iíd like it all that much. I prefer the 4 speed over the 5, so adding an extra gear on top of the 5 speed just means a lot more shifting to me.

Wait, what!? Are you over your tantrum Sugarstick?
“Are you not allowed to track an '88 Targa?
Most people do DE, and you just race against yourself.
Nothing wrong with a G50 as a track car.
In fact, better than a modern 3600 lb 911” signed the almighty Sucrose
