Took advantage of the perfect spring like weather in the North east today and did about 300 miles on the back roads of Pennsylvania.

The highlights of the day were “ Pennsylvania’s Tail of the Dragon “ - Route 125 from Jonestown, PA to Shamokin, PA.

Union Chapel to Shamokin

Then I started to wandered towards home and hit the Weatherly Hill Climb route. The hill climb course is only a mile but theres some extremely challenging turns on it.

Gave her a good wash after a year of storage (less 1 week in the middle). Changed the oil too and decided to use something different (used Mobil 1 and Liqui Moly in the past)

Hi guys, I have a 981 base Cayman and am thinking of replacing my stock 19" rims with 20" Carrera S rims.

Do you guys think it is worth it? Does the 20" make your ride significantly more uncomfortable?

Thanks.

I had 20" Carrera S wheels on my last two Boxsters, never really minded the comfort level and although I think there will be a slight change coming from 19" IMHO it is livable. The biggest difference I noticed was between the 18" winter set and the 20" summer, that was night and day!

It is a given that the 20" wheel/tire combo is a rougher ride, I think it is up to the individual as to what they find acceptable.

Yes bigger wheel is worse ride; it's the sidewall that makes for a better ride. Change from a 35 to a 45 and it will ride better but perform worst for DE AX.
Also biggest different is run-flat to non run-flats then you will really feel a nicer ride even with the same bias.

Social distancing while joining corners at the Dragon.

OUCH!! Washing your car in a place like that will destroy your paint...

That's true! I use one entire token to pressure wash the brush before using it for the soap. Also, I'll be correcting the paint again before the summer so it isn't too bad

Hey, the brushes aren't so bad at Royal Oak, I away figure it this way, if I use them on the tires and wheels by the time I get to the paint it's all good! ;)

Seriously, I have no problem at a wand spray wash if used correctly, I have seen much worse damage done in a driveway at home...

With coin operated car washes it’s not only the brushes, most of them recycle the water. As such, you are dependent on how well the water is filtered. According to a friend of mine that own car washes, 80% of the water coming out of the wand is recycled. This one of the reasons they are allowed to stay open during water restrictions.

You can tell if your really a car enthusiast or not when you do your own car wash at home vs go to coin op washes/car wash machines. ?

Haha in some places in the world the water outside has to get turned off at people's homes at certain times of the year because it gets cold. Also some people live in apartments where they don't necessarily have access or the ability to wash their own cars.

Also, don't be so quick to judge buddy. For all you know, I still could've used the two bucket method for washing at the wand wash.

During the winter months when I can’t wash my cars outside, I use either waterless washing products or or products that only require a gallon or two of water in a bucket. They allow me to wash my cars in the comfort of my garage. It also helps that most of them have ceramic coating on the paint.
