Mark UN-FREAKIN'-REAL . I bet they hate when you show up in your STOCK 928 and chew on their modded cars. The 928 may be a little slow off the line, but it takes a hell of a car to catch it when its wound up a little. Thats why I pay no attn. to stock 1/4 and 0-60 times. Way to rep bro!!!

I think ol' Normy gave em' too much too fast over there and it stagnated the thread. Maybe Craig's (aggravation)post 'll pick things back up a little.

Those little Motorsport Pro camera's are pretty cool. I think I may have to have one before SITM this year.

Sweet vid....the comparison between the 928 and the Vette is very interesting.....especially the way you put power down sooner than the vette can pull away in tight corners better.....considering your at least 30whp down and only 100lbs lighter....& the vette has coil over suspension, not crappy leaf springs....

Its not so much that the Vet keeping up with the 928, its really about the 928 being able to keep up with the Vet , which is running pretty fast now!
The interesting thing now, is that both of us are running almost the exact same times no matter what track we go to. recently, i cant tell you about the .030seconds that separate us.

The vet is actually, 250lbs heavier, now maybe more like 175lbs heavier since he shed some weight this winter, and his HP comes from a built, C5 motor with drysump, etc . 395rwhp. So, im down about 90hp, but have a little on the weight side!!

the Vet is just a US 928!

Here is Part 2 of the weekend video. Some of the in car is a little better due to the new digital camera. Better quality on the 2nd race, when i was able to adjust the white balance.

This has some of the rear cam video of racing with the Panos.

You can even hear the rev limiter more than a few times. After all, i do have a back up motor now!

Did you notice the "bumpdrafting" of the RX7 after i finallly got by the little lightweight rocket in the video part 1 clips?

I tell ya guys...some of these posts sound like they come from 17 year old, pimple faced adolescents that only want to "smoke " the back tires and make a lot of noise. Who cares about the comparisons? Your not going to convince hard core Vette fans to come over to the 928's and vice versa.....Just enjoy the car you like...what ever it is! I for one enjoy ANY vintage car that someone has put effort in...not just Porsche's. I have owned and restored one TR-6, 2 corvettes, 2 Trans Ams and have enjoyed each one. After all...if the 928 was as popular as Mustangs , vetts, camaros, firebirds...we would see them all over the place...I like having a car that isn't common. Except when I need a part on a Saturday that is.
