Now I am wondering if I should try to fit in my Chip Wizards date before May 5/6... hmmmmm.... very tempting.

Thanks for all the reports guys.. I can't wait also for May to tick around.

Do it Cam, it's a no-brainer if you have the time to get up there. I reckon there will be a fair amount of fettling going on. Mine's booked in at Byfleet in March for a few bits.

Looks totally amazing, cannot wait! Need to beat Clinchy's 147.....


In 5th Sam Grin things happen so fast I did not feel I could go up another gear

Next time Grin Thumb


I had the same feeling on the Nordschleife on the back straight, must be something to do with logic and living that kicks in. It's as if there's an invisible force stopping you going any faster.

Maybe you've just got to think "OK, if I die, I'll be doing something I enjoy, so let's go it to 6th."

(Only joking CAT team....)

How light was the front end at that speed?


It just got heavy in a progressive manor and Colin commented on the amount of extra downforce he could feel compared to the other 2 993s in our gang ,for me it was all I could do to just keep my focus

I might have to do it again sometime soon Cool


I managed to roughly match Clinchy's speed on the bowl, I thought my OEM car was fairly stable to a point but appreciate how much more stable his car would have been.


I need a time machine to fast forward me to the 5th or 6th May.

How much 'truffle hunting' is going on at 147 on the high speed bowl?


To be honest almost none. Little bit of fidgeting due to component movement but the car just gets more stable the faster you go. Worst point is probably around 120 when the aero hasn't really kicked in. So keep your foot in and get up to 140 and feel the difference! I was only in early 130's but confidence in it's stability was building as speed increased.

No need for power upgrades ,in fact the throttle response on my car was to much and almost harder to work with when you were coming off the gas on to brake and back on to gas with Colins fav saying 'Fast Feet'

With the exception of the bowl I doubt you will use gears 5/6 Surprised


You better off making sure your brakes and tyres and suspension are in fine fettle Thumb

The front wasn't too bad, it was the rear fidgeting which I found a little unnerving. However Colin assured me this was normal for a 911 and kept telling me to give it 'more gas', which I probably wouldn't have done without him alongside. He told me afterwards that I got up to 141, I'll take his word for it, I was looking where I was going and my steering wheel obscures that part of the speedo!

Great tuition Thumb

Going to need that file to upload onto youtube

As for the other video, the camera in the middle was as I suspected to low to capture anything and the one on the far end, isn't too bad, caught Pinot's spin and me finally getting some oversteer, although it needed to be on the roog of that building to gain from some height

However since I havent used tapes in years, I need to acquire a suitable download port on my pc as well as some software! (on the case!)

As you well know I'm not the most technical of people but would the immobiliser even know if the ignition lock was engaged? I thought it was just a mechanical lock?

Thanks Daniel. If a space becomes free for 6th May we'll let you know asap. And I'm sure the others will still speak with you even though you have currently left the 993 fold Grin
