Nice! You got me though. I was thinking "Oh no, what did Cactitus do now?":roflmao:

jhummel68 04-20-2009 08:41 PM

That is the F-18 mod. That afterburner adds another 1,000 lbs of thrust. That's got to be good for 20 - 30 mph on the straights.

Bart-- Were you asking about the physical location of the photograph's origin?
If so, note the sticker behind the left rear wheel on the bumper: Sportec.
Their website: sportec.ch.

Rennlist member & author Adrian Streather lives in Switzerland. Here's his 964 C4 on the same dyno:

Here are some picture I from last year when I took 911 & Porsche World magazine to Sportec who's factory is located just around the corner from our new one which we move into in 2 weeks:

On a separate note - Do buy Total 911 magazine this month as it is pretty much dedicated to the 993 model range and includes a great feature on a white 993 GT2 Evolution at Manthey Motors in Germany - The GT2 Evo featured is for sale for 209,000 Euro's :thumbup:

+1 on inquiring minds want to know...

Why/What/ How is this happening?

future 04-21-2009 10:18 AM


+1 on inquiring minds want to know...

Why/What/ How is this happening?
  • car running rich
  • un-burnt fuel igniting upon lift-off during gear change
  • turbo up boost + over fueling

Basically a hot exhaust with un-burnt fuel inside and upon lift-off oxygen enters and ignites the un-burnt fuel and when the gas pedal is pressed again upon moving on to next gear the flames exit the tail pipes – more common with Turbo cars.

Or one of these stupid ricer things: http://www.cruising4pussy.co.uk/stor...roducts_id/108 :surr:

Edgy01 04-22-2009 01:31 AM

I routinely produced flames but they were always blue (indicating the correct mixture) and were usually (as reported to me) when upshifting. I ran a single turbo, non-intercooled, with a 3.0 engine. Downstream of the turbo was a length of exhaust pipe, bent roughly in the middle, and that served as the muffler. It exited out the left (proper) side on my 1981. What a great sound, that engine had.

Brian-- All too true. Those sad shots were posted by Jean on the Racing & Drivers Education Forum's "Shooting Flames" thread.
Thanks for the update, & pointing us towards towards his current thread, "Go back to 3.6TT engine or fix Protomotive 3.8TT twin plug beast?"

speedbump2 01-18-2011 11:49 AM

I'll never forget the first time I was invited to one of the Tri-State Renlister's "Fun Runs".
I was behind one of the turbo cars on an interesting section of road. Because my car is considerably slower,
I was braking deeper into the corners while trying to keep up. I got pretty close to the turbo car in front of me
on the way into one of the corners. He lifted off the throttle, and a huge flame shot out of his tailpipes, aimed
right at my front bumper.:eek:
I made sure I gave him plenty of room after that. :)
