either way doesn't matter if his rules don't allow them, so I'm not gonna get into an internet fight about the availability of a weld in item, that could be fab from a generic kit... once again long day

Although, if you can't get away with adjustable brake bias, adding weight in the front end may be the only alternative.

Where's the rule book anyway? This could get fun.
Here is a link to the rules. This could get interesting.

We are currently in Prepared due to our non-standard wheel size. Also, bear in mind that we are trying to keep the car legal in autocross Street Touring R too.

and one other local autocross rule set. Quite a juggling act.


Stand back

Yes, 15x6.5, ET35 (12mm spacers for the rear once I source studs) I't the width that throws us out of stock, that and my desire to modify.

I didn't realize the discussion was an Internet fight. I was simply replying to what I believed to be some erroneous comments on CASTER adjustment, on t-bar 911's. Any aftermarket plate offering some sort of angular strut adjustment will be for CAMBER adjustment, as usually people are looking for more negative camber than stock, and perhaps adjustability. I modded my struts to get to -2.1 (IIRC) on Ruby. Once it was aligned-it stayed that way.

Listen I wouldn't take that self inflicted hit on the tire. That rule is meant to stop people from going with wider tires, not skinnier. I would call up the SCCA and ask them if you can run a 6.5" as a replacement for factory 7" on your 911. I think its nice that you're staying within the rules, but going skinnier on tires in this case I don't think it breaks the spirit of the rules to stay within factory specs.

At the very least there is no penalty for asking, god I can't wait to see this thing in the dirt!!!!!!

I can't get the PDF to load....but what are your wheel widths? your car could have easily had dealer installed 7's and 8's. Lot's did.

....and have you started looking at Pelican?

Its not a matter of if the car came equipped with 7's and 8's, the fact that it was an factory option or factory sponsered dealership option is all that matters. Think of it this way if you could have gone to Porsche dealership in 1984 and ticked a box on the order form for that part you want to install.. then you can install that part! Which means if you had deep enough pockets you could flare the fenders, rock turbo suspension and brakes on your car and still be within rules for the stock! The only caveat being that you can install parts of an option, so if you just wanted turbo brakes, that was part of the bigger m491 package so you'd have to go full blown

But it still gives you a LOT of stuff you can do within the rules! For example the US spec car was technically an option, you could remove the catalytic converter and say they you're using the RoW option code instead! Heres a nice PDF of all the option codes from 64-03, double check them to make sure they were available in 84

This is great info guys but one thing you might be overlooking or may not be aware of is that I own a parts business based on rallycross and autocross mostly so part of the motivation for this and any of our projects is to throw parts at the car so staying in stock really isn't an option, fun though it might be to study and apply factory options. What we are trying to do is develop the car in such a way as to be competitive in class in the three (or two) series we want to run in to the point where the modificatins we want to perform bump us up.

Not much action yesterday though the State of Michigan fully endorses the project now.



Sorry about the untidy rear. The car was backed into a trailer at some point resulting the the above damage. It got a new engine cover as a result. The remaining damage is not visible with the Porsche plate on but, because of the distortion it wont stay on so I took it till I can devise a fix.

These showed up yesterday. They're not for me but I sure am tempted. We still have to figure out our autocross and track day setup but are leaning to these BRAID replicas in 16x7 and 16x8 shod with Dunlop Direzzas 205 and 225. Of course, ours might be white!




We scored some proper rally snow tires; Yokohama A034. Can you imagine how squirmy these would be on tarmac?




What's this for? One on the left and one on the right, just behind the front wheels.




No windshield washers! I added washer fluid and it poured straight onto the floor! Found the pump and bottle but the pipe from the filler is missing. Sorta strange. Pump works though. Today I'll investigate the bottle which is sort of loose.





Apart from the above major triumphs we did suffer one setback yesterday: I was adjusting the engine cover latch as it wasn't quite latching. Now it wont unlatch. DOH! Any suggestions how to get it open? I'm sure I'll have to get in there sooner or later.

Nice project. I especially like your inspiration, as I've been tempted to dabble in such a project.
