No, I'm not using it right now. I haven't bugged Travis enough to get a spare ECU with high Z diodes. Kind of annoying, but I guess sending out a loaner ECU would be above and beyond my expectation of any vendor. This is also another reason why I haven't tuned it on a dyno yet. If I can't get a replacement ECU this season, then I'll have to send mine to him over the winter.

Once you get all the kinks worked out and are able to hit the track, you'll wonder why you took so long in the first place haha.

I'll get some clips of all the S2000's I was passing on that day alone. Maybe that should be reason enough for you not to get one.

I'm only at 10psi. I see that at around 3200-3400rpm. I don't know precisely, but it begins building boost at around 2000 rpm if not sooner.

Also forgot to mention that I melted one of the 949 wheel centre caps. I was pulling into the pit and when I stopped I saw something continue rolling. I realized it was my cap and went to get it. Do you guys take these off at the track?

I was so bored today that I decided to go and take a drive through Toronto - I hate Toronto for some reason. I was running low on gas so I pull off the highway to search around. Within 2km I get pulled over and get a ticket for having no front plate. Cop didn't even know what kind of car I was driving. He didn't buy my "it ruins the look of my car" excuse. Waste of time trying to fight an $85 ticket.

And a boring *** video if anyone wants to see this city skyline. My good videos are corrupt, memory card must be messed up.

Way to make me not interested in watching your video.

I never installed my caps for just this reason. My wheels are too hot to touch when I come in after a session, I can't imagine the caps standing up to that heat. Last time I was at the track I cooked my brakes and the heat caused my Dynalite caliper to go from being black to an ugly rust color. At the same time I noticed that one of my wheel weights had fallen off and all that was left was strands of adhesive...also from the heat?

I can't imagine my wheel bearings like the heat much either. Hopefully there's still some grease left in there.

Bet I wasted your 17 seconds still

I'm gonna pull the caps off beforehand next time. I am probably on original wheel bearings too, another item item the big list for winter.

Here's a video from the track tonight. I would have pulled right away had I started in 4th, but I decided to take it easy and use 5th at about 3000rpm. I gave up at about 190-195, I knew I had him . Do not fear the .86 housing! It's a base Boxster with some unknown mods. I believe a 2008.

Yeah, street lights and all, lol

It's all the same setup and top down in all recent videos. Probably nothing for the sound to bounce off of in this on

huzzah

I couldn't wait any longer for the TSE rad so I'll be using this for now. Do you guys run 1 or 2 fans (no AC)? I've got two on for now.






Ducting and splitter in the works. Waiting for it to come back from the water jet. It'll be protruding about 5".
