  1. Track day advice

    718 Chat
    I've had my 718 Boxster S for 9 months now and I've enjoyed it on the road immensely. Now, I want to take things up a notch and I'll be going on my first track day this week! I had a few questions for our learned track warriors. 1. Is there any type of check premandated by Porsche before taking...
  2. Ouch!

    This could ruin your day (hope the driver wasn't inside):
  3. NON-Whine for the Day

    General Off-Topic
    I started the Whine for the Day thread after a miserable experience at a family chain restaurant, everything from burnt food to a server who was just pathetic. Going back there a year later, the same restaurant completely turned around and I noted that. But life isn't full of whines. No...
  4. Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit - very short video

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    This Saturday's challenge. After a day on Shenandoah, I take five Ibuprofen for shoulder pain.
  5. Heat cycles?

    981 Chat
    My almost new P4S have now had 3 track days, for totals of about 14 half-hour sessions with hour-long breaks and about 400 track miles. Today with Chinn I noticed that I have less traction, a bit of overseer in some turns, etc. Am I just dreaming or have I almost used up their track-ability...
  6. Happy Father's Day

    General Off-Topic
    Happy father's day. My son (4.5 yo) wrote up a list of the 4 things he appreciates about me. The top of the list: "ILIC WEN U DRIV ORNOCAR." Translation: "I like when you drive our new car." (That topped playing with him; taking him to New York [spelt NOYORK]; and eating snacks.) :) :) :)

  8. 981 NJ Roads Make Another Sale for TireRack

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Had another nice day with my 4yo (Harriman State Park; Storm King Art Center). At the end of the day a pot hole flattened the passenger side front tire. Porsche Roadside was helpful and we're back home safe and sound. Picked up the car in December. For those keeping score, that's two tires in...
  9. Valentine's Day - A Week Late

    981 Chat
    I had black GTS exhaust tips installed at the local Porsche dealer this morning. The tips and the installation were a Valentine's Day gift from my spouse and very much appreciated!
  10. Sonoma outing with 718S (video)

    718 Chat
    Got a chance to take the 718 s out to Sonoma on Black Friday. Car did fantastic even in the cold and with a couple damp spots on the track. I left PSM on and it was minimally intrusive. I forgot track day insurance so I wanted to play it safe, but it was a good chance to get to know the system...

  12. Sport vs Sport+

    981 Chat
    I have had my 14 BS MT & SC for almost a year now and really enjoy it, especially in Sport + with the auto blip on downshifts. (Which I absolutely love, by the way.) The other day, I realized I never put the car in just Sport. It’s always in normal or Sport +. So I thought I’d ask if anyone...
  13. Grinding-like noise only on morning start-up

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    When I start my car up in the morning, it makes a "grinding" noise behind me that shows up a second or so after it starts and then goes away for the rest of the day. One day, it didn't make the noise in the morning but that was much later in the day. I hooked up my OBDII reader and there's no...
  14. Boxster/Cayman inside door sill scuffs

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    in my new to me 2010 BS, the prior owner was careless about lifting his feet over the black plastic sill that contains the trunk release switches. That is a $200+ part, but bugged me from day one to the point I almost broke down and replaced it. I finally took a drastic step and brought out...
