That's an excellent picture, David.
It shows Porsche's REAL credo - BALANCE.
If you have an excellent flowing head, you balance it with longer intake runners, for example.
The way to the best powerband.

It does look like Wayne's mellow car from pulp fiction but I don't think it is.

Thanks for the compliments.

The wing is by Kokeln. It's the white and blue one they show on their website (it's that exact same one).

The wheels are by CCW (Complete Custom Wheel). They are 10 x 17 in front and 12 x 17 in rear. I run Hoosier 275/35/17 front and 315/35/17 rear.

The front is wider by 1" and the rear is wider by 3". It's a little tight in the front but it works.

I do have some great video that shows me working my way through the pack in a POC Club race at Willow. It's great passing 993 factory cup cars, a 928, and even some 996 cup cars. I'm still trying to figure out how to convert and post it.

interesting, I'm currently trying to decide on wheels, the series dictates that only allowed tires are michelin pilot sport cups, and they just don't have any wide 17", so 18" is the diameter of choice, I'm a bit uncertain of how wide I can go up front and still be able to turn.

in theory I should be able to fit 18x11" up front with 295 or 315 and 18x12 or 18x12.5 rear with 345

has anyone run any dimensions like this before?

how do you feel the car handles with the 275 and 315 setup? the stretch is rear is quite large compared to front on 12" rims.

as for covering the wheels I will do the fiberglass and widening myself, but we are not allowed to build tube frames and such in the series.

what format is the video? I work as a geek, so might be able to help you out.
