This is my first Cayman to compliment some of my other cars. I'm going to use it for DE events with my son to enjoy as well. To date, I've been using my GT3, but it's time to let him start learning (and NOT in a GT3).
The primary goal is safety, exhaust, and then performance.
So after taking my GT3s to the track, I finally broke down and decided to embark on a new project with my son. Bought a 2009 Cayman S with 37,000 miles on it. And did this to it (if the original owner only knew):
Heading to the shop for a cage next week. I'll post progress information and pics here as I move through it.
Here are some of my other cars...
BTW - Removing the complete interior and wiring harness took me around 30 hours (first time doing it). Learning along the way. I've been working on cars since I was 16 years old and am a mechanical engineer.
Doing this in phases (may shift some things around)... Other than the cage/clutch/fire suppression/AIM, I'm doing the rest myself together with my son. It's our project car and I'll be very comfortable with him being safe during his first DE event.
