The faulty amp has returned from its holiday in Norway
More here: http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=102314
Very satisfying to fix something!!

A few pics from the operation:













The thought to "quit whilst you're ahead" suddenly came to mind...



...and back from Tore in Norway all working a treat Thumb

Just 150 odd days until we head to Spa Smile I really can't wait

Friday 16th October with Circuit Days day, if anyone fancies it. I'll be there for the two nights either side with a friend so beers if anyone fancies joining just shout

I don't think I'll be able to achieve 30mpg though as I head in to Europe like some lucky members of this forum have seemed to!! Grin

Hard to look it up "roof rack clip thingy" - anyone have any idea what this part would be called? The tiny plastic clip in the roof rack slot thing has snapped which lets it fall down a little and I need it 100% flush.
I'll just pop into Porsche and ask I guess

Last Friday my GT3 got to do what a GT3 does best: drive into Europe, smash the Spa-Francorchamps sliding round corners on four wheels before taking us out for dinner and driving us home again – what a car

The Spa racetrack is amazing fun - its not for the fainthearted - but I’d recommend it to anyone who’s enjoyed a good few previous trackdays. It gave me such a high I never wanted to return from

Nick in NXI20 his 996 GT3 3.8 invited me for a passenger ride to learn the lines and what a car that is.. I’m in love with his cars suspension... just proves how you can turn these amazing cars up even further with knowledge and funds - a truly amazing machine - this slope is going to get even more slippery I fear.. wack

A few pics from our most amazing trackday yet

Glad you enjoyed Spa Freddie. It's a very special place & never, ever, gets boring.

The best way of thinking of the GT3 is as a very well developed platform that lends itself to being molded into the owner's ideal track car. Don't listen to those who think the product that Porsche delivers cannot be improved upon; those people simply don't "get" the GT3.

As you say, it takes knowledge (there are well known experts out there to assist in this) and a not inconsiderable amount of money, but at least half the fun is the journey getting there and as you felt in mine, the end product is very rewarding to drive.

Here's to the next one Thumb

Sure beats talking about values!

First track day of the year enjoyed at a very friendly Lotus Club day at Goodwood. Watch the pheasants! (and obviosuly black flag marshals)

A little I guess but was my first time there; found it pretty cool esp with some fellow 911ukers!

Back at Spa again in May but joining the Lotus Club day this time and if last Saturdays Goodwood td one was anything to go by should be a lot more space. Cant wait Thumb

Nice to see you out in the car, how did you find Lotous on track? I'm planning in joining you at Spa in May

Hi Jon,

Not sure if it was quieter because of the time of year but had the most track time I've had at Goodwood with a nice variety of cars

Great you're coming to Spa, lets go for pizza puh

The GT3 and I have been having some serious adventures of late. We've driven around 3,500 miles in the past month (48,000 miles now and counting)

Its been so much fun taking in the Highland 500 - what an area! - and last week Spa Francorchamps circuit

I'm going away now but here's a quick pic + a big hello to Rich D and Rallyman who I bumped into at Spa (great to meet you both)

I dropped the GT3 off at Sid's in between these two adventures and as usual the car came back fighting fit
Great stuff and top man - Sid @ www.porsche-torque.com Thumb
