  13. Boxster not track broken, tends to pee on carpet.

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    While doing a DE at Grattan Raceway in Belding, MI on July 28th, the coolant line clamp that goes to the passenger side radiator came apart dumping all my coolant on the track. Luckily the track didn't charge me for clean-up. However this did bring my track session to a close though. Friends...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    This year I built up a dedicated Cayman S track car. In the process of setting up the car, I've run across one problem on the track that I can't seem to eliminate completely.
