Winter Work

The car has taken everything we've thrown at it over the last six months without any mechanical, engine or electrical failures. The forces and stresses placed on the car are far greater than road or even track day driving.  It shows how well engineered the Porsche is from the factory.

After over 6hrs of track time we'll be treating it to a major service;

  •   Replace spark plugs / coil packs / spark plug tubes and o-rings
  •   Change Engine Oil / Filter (Mobil 1 15/50 Motorsport)
  •   Clean Performance Air-Filter
  •   Bleed brakes with some more (Castrol SRF)
There are also some outstanding upgrades to bring the car up to the same standard as the other Class-A Boxsters and fully take advantage of the regulations.
  •  Goodridge stainless steel brake lines
  •  H&R Anti-roll bar Kit
  •  Adjustable drop links
  •  Short shift kit
Oh...and there is some minor bodywork to attend to;
  • Repair and repaint the rear bumper (hit up the back more than once)
  • Repair and repaint the front wing and door scrape (failed overtake at Brands Hatch)
