The easiest way is to replace it with an aftermarket radio. That way you'll get blue-tooth and the sound is better too.

You can buy something like a "SiriusXM - Commander" (~$130 from best buy),...

Take one for a test drive.

I've got a long hood 911, and both the 2.5 and the 2.7 (5-speeds) felt "quick enough" to me. I ended up going for the 2.7 just because they are about the same money,...

Interesting. It looks like a lot of additional cooling is part of the rumored Cayman GT4RS (https://youtu.be/3QJmStBgz7I). The video makes a big deal about if it will encroach on the GT3, or a...

Thrashing a 911 around Le Mans in 1971! (as well as Long Tails, Short Tails and ST's)

Here's a cool video of the 1971 Le Mans race (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9EtKZUDHY0). In addition to the above, there are some nice views of the "Pink Pig" and cameos by Pedro Rodríguez,...

Now the other thing to consider is shocks. Lots of time the understeer or oversteer condition is in transition, and then continues into the rest of the corner once it starts. Springs and sway bars...

I would suggest using the same strategy as joetiii did above. Buy a couple of 7/8 bushings and then mill 0.009 inches off of them. To be honest you could most likely sand or file that amount off...

Porsche RSRs, 934s, 935s (including K3s), 936s, 924 GTRs and even a 917!

The question is: What sort of models would you see in early 1980's documentaries about Le Mans?

I recently came across these two lesser known films on the 1980 and the 1982 Le Mans races.
