Default Antique Tracking

After a 20 hour + detail my old, manual, technology is ready for another track season. Hope a 1:35 Laguna Time will allow me to keep up with the new and superior machinery (looking at you 991.2)!

Looking good Sir! And Great idea mounting your DSC on the outside of the panel! I will copy your idea to do this on mine.

They sure are, but can feel like a workout sometimes!

Tom, thanks to DSC and Tractive for all the support, it has certainly made the "antique" more modern!

Did you shine the flappy paddles, clean off the rear steering and make sure all the electronic aids are working?

Relic looks fantastic!

She's a honey. May I ask a question? Quick review of DSC and Tractive dampers please? Percentage better than stock?

If that’s an antique, I guess my 964 is a dinosaur

Thanks Josh! Should be a fun year. Keeps an army to keep it all up and running, so big thanks to Aleks @ Alekshop, Jamie @ Dundon and Tom @ TPC!

Thanks man! It took a lot of work to get to this point.

This is a loaded question! I promised Tom to write up a review after a full year with it, but I still have not taken the time. I used DSC with stock suspension and then with Tractive. Everything on the car is functionally oriented to gaining speed and in that sense it all works. Feel free to PM me with any specific questions you may have; happy to share the experience.

I think your car qualifies as a beautiful classic at this point!
