BTW... the red car in my pic will be for sale complete in it's totality minus the engine, headers, computer and engine wiring harness, transponder and seat.

Everything else is exactly as it is including cool suit, GPS lap timing, Chase cam dual cam pic in pic system, new 6 point Schroth harness, etc...

Street legal and currently registered. Spare splitters, S2 trans with 50/80 Guard Diff, 315's on all 4 corners, 996 GT3 brakes, Boxer ABS, Huge Radiator and oil coolers and diff cooler, 2725lbs wet, complete new front suspension including new custom valved and rebuilt Bilsteins, new porsche 968 control arms, new porsche spindles, new racers edge billet hubs, new racers edge rear control arm joints, etc.....

This car will kill 98-99% of anything on the track without being a trailer queen!

You only need the engine, RH headers, engine wiring harness. The motor mounts, dual 2.5" exhaust, the GM computer are included.

And.. you need a seat and your own transponder. Brand new Schroth 6 point harnesses are included.

Something like 680 rear 650 front? Damn, with new 330 slicks in the correct compound you must be able to pull 1.8-2.0 G's in cornering.
To find some kind of economy most people around here use used Porsche Cup car slicks.

A couple more small updates.....

The Nascar door bars were modified and cleaned up.

The rear 996 shock mounts are almost done.

Curious on the angle of the rear shock mounts. 996/997 mounts aren't quick perfectly vertical, but they are no where near the angle these are. Curious how that will affect shock performance. I assume you will have to use a slightly stiffer spring versus a setup that is more vertical? I assume they will modify the drop link mount so there isn't a severe angle where the link attaches to the shock?

Believe it or not, the shock angle is a lot closer than it looks from the pictures. As far as spring rates go... We have to revalve and respring anyway since the back of the 944 (this 944) is so much lighter than the back of a 996. So it's a non-issue.

I don't know what they are doing for the drop links or drop link mounts due to the fact that they are building custom sway bars for the car (both front and rear).

Here's the rear shock mount finished. One of the 3 mounts was cut down and finished. Other two tomorrow.

Note the removable X brace in the roll cage :-)

Funny....

It's so we can take out the secondary fuel cell from the top w/o having to take out the transmission and torque tube to take it out through the bottom.
