I noticed a few chirps when you are coming into corners under brakes. Are you heel/toe'ing or don't you have ABS?

No ABS (86) and still working on heel toe

Even though quite archaic compared to current ABS units, I used to really like it on my old '89. Getting the heel/toe action down is really useful for both times and transmissions. :-)

i used to not want ABS because i thought it would detract from the simple driving fun of a 944 but...
since i got my subaru which has standard ABS, even with marginal quality brakes it stops VERY hard.
emergency-type braking in the subaru just stops it, at a pedal pressure that would just lock up the tires on the 944...

so ABS is worth having, if you can get it...

That's the way to do it!

Your driving has improved quite a bit from your first few events. Nice job!

FWIW I ran a few events with the boost turned all the way down (Laguna Seca on purpose, but a few local Chicago area events on accident where I shared the car with my wife and forgot to turn it back up before I went out) and I did not notice much of a difference in lap times. In fact it was a little bit more fun being able to go deeper into the braking zones!

Yeah probably!

The early ABS was nothing like the current stuff. On one hand, yeah, "better than nothing"... but he's not giving up much, especially on track. Most of the newer 944's that are 100% track duty that *I* have seen actually have a "ABS RESET" button on the dash... apparently it's pretty easy to overwhelm the factory ABS module when used on a track.

Just finished all my mods in preparation for year six with the Hybrid Stroker. Buffed and waxed it, still looks pretty good even after a lot of track events. Upgraded brakes, new brake lines, more oil cooling, and new harness. Should be a fun year!
