Default How to increase the value of your 997 GT Cars - Tips from the pros

I heard this helps? Anyone want a highly enjoyed RS that just can't seem to keep it's a$$-end under it?

Sometimes you just gotta let 'er go. Glad to see it was in a benign enough area. Flat spots at all?

Lol! Chuckwalla is a good track to spin or go out on (ask me how I know )! My rear were pretty toast when I was there last year. Just glad to see everyone was ok.

Haha that is the most innocuous place to lose it. Lower speeds and the track is so wide.

That corner is a PITA. It's off camber, it's decreasing, and just a headache. So I was trying to go in hot, get some rotation, get it back to shoot out to the next corner.

Well this time I went in a little too hot and well, the little flick or gas I'd been doing all day didn't work this time and got behind the car. :-)

Nice thing about the Red/advanced group is the heads up drivers. The guy who passed me I'd just passed 3 corners before and I'm sure he's thinking "dumb @ss!!!!"

Nah, tires are fine. Even kept it on the pavement! So no vacuum needed.

2 laps later I did my best time of the day.

You mean this one?

So when your buddy spins and goes off track in your peripheral vision, DON'T LIFT.

CJ Signed the dust on that one.

Had to wait for dust to clear to drive out, couldn't see a thing.

OH man, I literally ripped the interior apart to clean it. That was painful. It was like a dust tidal wave.

Just dust and pride. No damage. Chuckie is great for that.

I love the hand throw up after you spin, like WTF!?! LOL

If you post this on the 991 board, people would shriek in terror at the $20K in lost value.

hahah yeah, that was my freeway "WTF" gesture ! :-) That may have been a 'relief' signal that I didn't have to vacuum the car out for 3 days.

Oh, my cars are worthless, just the way I like them.
