Some of you might have already seen this...if you're an "LS 914" fan - you'd be interested. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Second Day after changes (1 lap only) - amazing balance in the car!
https://youtu.be/NhHMaa0_R5o


https://youtu.be/LfFdP8GnXiQ (12+ minutes)


This was the second session of the first day the car was on the track...maybe pushing it a little too hard out of the gate but it did well. I tightened the front bar, lowered the rear ride height, tightened up the shocks (dampening) and lowered air temps Sunday/today - WOW! What a difference...I don' know which one did it or a bit of them all but it worked...took three seconds off my time as compared to this video.

This is a LONG video (12+ minutes)...I had been flagged for being too loud and had to "lift" 300 yards before the first marker on the straight. Bummer. I started following SixAddict for a couple laps. We had a great time!

I was looking forward to seeing that machine go.
What was your max session time and were the engine temperatures acceptable?

I am glad Tony posted this as I was tempted to do so without asking...>You had to be there...This thing is a phenom! Literally this was most photographed car at the event. Still trying to talk him into trading rides for a session (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif)
A first class build !

1) Unofficially (SixAddicts wife) clocked me at 1:16 (could be in the ballpark, even if I was a little slower than that). She clocked the IMSA GT3 at 1:15 during the same session. I'll take anything in the ball park as a positive sign. That car has run the 24 hours of Daytona...at that point, my car ran ONE 20-minute session with no adjustments. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

2) Engine coolant never exceeded 210 but oil got a little too hot for my taste at 290. We have controlled engine oil temps on LS's before but always with "ducting up front" I'm not moving the cooler up front but will figure that one out. Oil pressure never waivered despite the heat. When I short-shifted one session the oil never exceeded 260 - the difference will not be difficult to fix.

Too kind...thank you! Especially so coming from a "SIX" owner/driver! This is how the BIG time 914's travel (SixAddict's Green Machine)... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif)

It was a "great" weekend with the crew.

Fun to watch a well built car tearing around the track.

Nice thing about 914's is that they are light and can brake later; even when you have a built V-8 behind you.

Nice driving....keep up the good work.

Bob - Yeah right! Just what you need to blow your trans...not for me.

Randal - That motor is bone stock out of a Camaro SS (425 hp) running the factory tune too. I was locking up my front right tire in testing and therefore couldn't even think about late braking - we'll get it sorted and then watch out! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I had lots of issues with front brake lockup until I took a different approach. The new approach definitely worked for Autox and Hillclimbs, but can't tell you about events longer than 4 minutes.

But it might be worth a try. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

If anyone is questioning upgrading their brakes...stock Boxster units would work just fine. I am running the larger 996 911 front brakes (and stock Boxster rears) but if I was starting over again, I'd just go with the Base Boxster Front and Rear.
