    New Aussie Widebody TPC Stage 2 ATP build

    Well, almost 3 years on, our little Cayman S is due for a birthday.

    Shes been a good Girl, running on the Podium in our home Porsche Clubs B class & outright categories, holds the fastest lap times ever set in a 987 at all of the circuits we have run at (Including Mt Panorama / Bathurst).

    Anyway, after long discussions, many beers & a lot of research, we called the TPCicon boys and decided to "pull the trigger".

    Luckily our car already has a heap of supporting mods, but the areas we needed to improve on are power & handling. After several chats with Tom & Mike, we decided on the stage 2 ATP, and a selection of the TPC suspension components.

    Oh, a little body widening to get the problem of lack of Aero & rubber on the ground is also taking shape.

    Will post some more pics as we progress!

    CONGRATS and welcome to the club... may I ask what are the "selection of the TPCicon suspension components"?
    2015 991 GT3 (Guards Red)... undecided
    2006 3.7L Cayman turbo S (Arctic Silver)... sold

    Nice! Just curious if you guys fabricated your own wide body kit or did you get it from a 3rd party?

    Keep up the good work!

    Awesome looking Cayman. Would love to see it in action. How did you find Bathurst, a few of the Victorian members I spoke to had a blast. Are there many Caymans running in the QLD porsche club. At present, I'm the only one competing in PCV.

    Just B class for me - but I did break the old record by over a second - its a bugger as I'm the only regular Cayman Competitor up here.

    Was with James last night, he's in between cars & still misses his GT3. He likes the look of the new project

    We are running some Sach's racing coils at the moment, we are going to change some spring rates there, but the rest will be TPC all the way - top mounts, sway bars, links, adjustable toe rods etc.

    It's the Jacquemond Cendryn kit

    Porsche Cayman by Jacquemond : rear wing, roof spoiler, widebody, wide body, kit, wide fenders, bumpers, side skirts, strosek, gemballa, techart, nrautos

    Thought long and hard about this, expensive- yes, nice, yes. The factory like styling is what won me over. Fit & finish is first rate, our panel shop gives it a 9/10, only a little work required in a couple of spots. A lot of work has gone into the shape & design of the kit & the finish shows that off.

    Bathurst was the best track event I have ever done, I must get a video on line. Not many other places you can pull 6th gear, get the car completely light & then make a decision if your tyres feel good enough to take the kink flat! If you get a chance to do it, take it.

    I've done laps at Road Atlanta & a few other international tracks, this must rate up there with the "ring" & "Le Mans"

    Same in QLD, I'm the only Cayman running all events, the odd one turns up for a one off round. Anyway, its good to see off a lot of the late GT3's, so looking forward to what we can do with the TPCicon kit.

    Oh well it had a happen, your car will be faster than my old '06 beast (now sold) which was the fastest one in oz.

    Current '10 not as fast as the '06

    If I ever get to QLD I'll have to check it out!

    Guy, looks like I'm not the only one with fetish for widebody! Seriously though, does this mean you are going to be the TPCicon agent here too or is this just a personal thing? Look forward to this beast in Motor mag tuner challenge if you are going to be retailing it!

    hey mate, I was not going to mention any fetishes here

    Working with TPC at the moment on several levels. Awesome with support.

    Now if we could just get the car back from the panel shop!
