Re: My Budget BBK (996, RallyRoad, THE POWDERCOATER.COM)

Do you all call around for a local machine shop to mill the calipers or how do you go about it?

Re: Three individuals... Japan Red, Estoril Blue, Brass Metallic

Titanium Silver cars have been put on notice.

Speaking of, there was what appeared to be a ground up restoration on a Phoenix Yellow car recently posted in the photos section :thumbsup2:

Re: Sold the Jet Black, picked up an E90 M3

The 911 has a ton of grip; however, when it goes it goes. I've only had mine swing around on me a bit once and it left me feeling a bit timid as well. It's hard to describe, but I hit some dirt or...

Re: Sold the Jet Black, picked up an E90 M3

The "GTx or nothing" mindset only makes people miss out on a lot of great cars offered by Porsche. A Carrera S, for example, can be had for 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a GT3 or GT4 and offers a lot of...

OZ Challenge HLT 18x10 +25 Wheels

I have decided to sell my 18x10 +25 OZ Challenge Wheels. They have Toyo comp tires on them now in 275/35/18, but I would personally recommend changing them out. These wheels are in great shape but...

Re: Porsche 996 BREMBO BBK Photo DIY

I would think it would need to be precise as well. I've been researching machining and without a table or specialized machine, I don't think it is something that can be done at home.

Re: 17 inch tire choices actually pretty good?

That's a good point. 17s look ugly on a street car, at least in my opinion. On the track it's more about function that form so it doesn't matter what they look like. There are other benefits to...

I support adding an E90 but not if it means getting rid of this car, it's too perfect to let go.

Re: PFC V3's and BREMBO's ;)

Every single bracket setup I've seen requires 5.5mm to be milled for CSL sized rotors. I'm not aware of any options that would allow them to be ran as-is but it certainly wouldn't be a bad thing if...

These would be the only rotors available where milling the mounting point is not required, correct?

Re: Money saved doing your own work, but to what extent?

To properly inspect you'd have to remove all of the coating but I wouldn't go through that unless you see an obvious crack or have other symptoms. Check out some of the Redish Motorsports videos on...

Re: Couple drips of oil leak seen at ppi... pic attached.

The CPV is super easy. You just need the large flat head socket, an extension and a wobble socket to get it out of there. What worked best for me was to remove the exhaust probe piece with a 17mm...

I run a square setup as my daily setup. 18x9 +30 on 265/35 AS3s. Rides nice and I like that the tires are rotatable.
