Sure you can; do it all the time. Just put out last and keep enough pace to not let the leaders catch up too soon.
Not much alternative for track cars.

Now that's just embarrassing. I'm just a guy with great friends.
And who goes way overboard in keeping his car pretty.

makes sense...carry on

Default Time for an update



Well they pulled the magnetic plug and SURPRISE. What you see is a little bit of rod bearing, a little bit of bore sleeve and maybe some chocolate chips. We will now go into the tear down and diagnosis phase. Cause - TBD? Options; Several, based on what we can save. Hopefully the block and crank can be saved, should several sleeves be shredded, it will be time to machine out the old ones and re-sleeve with new Nickies and punch out to 3.6 or 3.8 and use some solid parts for longevity. HP will be secondary to reliability as a philosophy for the rebuild.
Stay tuned....

Hmm, looking into the crystal ball, depending on budget, I think I see a 3.8, maybe larger?????????

Simple math 3.8 = bigger brakes = +$5k to the rebuild. Decisions, decisions....

Yes, sir! May be the cheapest, easiest way to go. Gotta speak to my good friend Rick, to see what he has on his Cayman and then send a letter to Santa.
Some how I get the feeling the presents under the tree this year will look like rods,bearings, pistons and rings... better than a lump of coal.

Chris R did some research while building his bro's Cayman. Stock brakes should do it....good for Daytona....

I'm thinking he needs to grab a bit of sack and go deep.

Seriously Stan - I feel bad about your engine. It's going to be great to see you at the event and says a lot about your coming regardless. Just hoping to see you back on track as soon as possible (although a 3.8 WOULD be nice !!).

Eric thanks for the kind words, I'll find the sack, but even with a 3.8 you would be hard to follow. Recently had the pleasure of droving a NEW RS and now understand the meaning of a fast, planted car... you RS guys have it good.
BTW we have a bit of a fun surprise for you gurly gurls on Monday night.

I've got a stock 3.4 but Cayman series larger front brakes. Which I use way too early and often. Still, the car gets around Tremblant pretty well.
The 3.8 build is very desirable 'while you are in there'. haven't driven one, but have been passed by more than a few.
See you soon!
