    CaymanSpec Racer - CSR #3

    I've edited the original post to include more build-related information. I'll use this post to keep a running tab of all parts installed on the car.

    I'd like to use this original post to keep a running list of all parts involved in this build so we can start documenting options for CSR projects. Hopefully this also serves as a blueprint for the CSR #3 build.

    Interior/Exterior
    Custom 6-point Rollcage
    Sparco Circuit - 00892FNR *
    Sparco Aluminum Sidemounts - 00490W *
    Sparco Seat Bases - 400SB004L *
    Sparco 325 Steering Wheel - 015R325CSN *
    RothSport Quick Release - RS-097R *
    MOMO Hub Adapter - RS-M095 *
    Kognition Rear Carbon Fiber wing
    BodyMotion Racing Front Splitter
    Aerocatch Flush Non-Locking Hood Pins
    Techart Side Skirts
    Two Sets of Carerra II Wheels with R888 and brand new NT01s.
    Suspension
    KW 2-way Race Shocks *
    Tarett Front Droplinks - EXTFDLNK-09
    Tarett Front Swaybar - 997FSBA
    Tarett Monoball for Front Control-Arms - 996.001
    Tarett Rear GT3 Lower Control Arms with Monoballs
    Tarett Rear Toe Link with Bump Steer - 996TLNKWBMP

    Engine
    RSS Underdrive Pulley - #601
    Porsche Motorsports - Vapor/Oil Separator - 996 107 926 00
    X51 Oil Pan/Sump Extension
    Crankcase Ventilation Hose - 987 107 947 00

    *Supplied by Group5 Motorsports

    BEFORE:


    AFTER:


    The following pictures show various stages of the weight removal. The interior is completely stripped and all the unnecessary weight is being taken out. The rollcage build should start very soon. The doors will be cut and the windshield will be tabbed to avoid cracking.
















    Big thank you to KW for setting up the custom-valved double adjustable race shocks. Tarett drop-links will be attached from the shocks to their GT3 front swaybar.



    Will weigh the car after the cage goes in. Should be very close to CSR weight w/driver.

    Let the good times roll!

    Makes me a little queezy to see it gutted like that. Would love to be able to do that to a dedicated track car some day.

    Re: CaymanSpec Racer - CSR #3

    Some more pictures of the weight-reduction.

    Rear bumper supports removed. That exhaust needs to go asap!


    Wiring is complete. RSR removed a ton of wirings that just weren't needed anymore. You will notice that the fusebox has been relocated to the passenger side. This entire effort was a lot of work but I'm happy with the end result. It will be organized once the rollcage is built/painted.



    Wing risers being measured by Mike @ Kognition. They're working on a wing that can fit all Cayman racecars.



    After a lot of deliberation, we decided to bolt the wing risers directly to the chassis. Why not?! Ahh, I can't wait to see the end product.




    The doors have been cut, the TechArt wing removed and now it's going in for the rollcage. CSR3 will be ready for Laguna!!

    OK, while the rollcage is being built, we're going Cup car style with the dash. The tan is being peeled, the foam removed and we're going to clean it up to look like the raw composite material. This should save a good amount of weight as well.

    Looks awesome!!

    Is that the TechArt "Sound Box" exhaust tip? What are you doing with the removed parts? Selling?

    Why isn't CSR in the PCA Club Racing line up? So little additional work for me to do from where I currently am. Is it on the charts out west?
