Worst mod: That additional drive shaft that was VERY briefly installed in my front left wheel well near Vegas back in '17.
That was Karma telling you you shouldn't have removed the car's front drive shaft :lol:

Karma: providing me plenty of shaft since 1970.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

I think I've got a couple of extra ones. I'll try to remember to bring them to PCA breakfast on Saturday. I keep them in the 996tt console, but I seriously doubt I'll be driving it on Saturday based on the weather forecast.

Assuming my wife doesn't hide the keys again this week, I'll be in the blue Cayenne. If not, then an Explorer. Looks like its gonna be ugly for the AFC Championship Game.

Agreed. We had to sit the grandkids last Saturday, as my daughter and her husband actually went to the Indy game. End zone seats about 12 rows back. Most of the action happened at their end, so they were really wound up about the result. This Sunday game against NE will be the Freezer Bowl. I can't imagine playing in that cold. What some people will do for $10Million a year. :)

If you're serious - of course! PM me your mailing address.

Many folks are not aware that you can double the horsepower yield of each 996Outpost.com decal by pairing it with the correctly-sized K&N sticker.

Dallas - I've got one sitting in my console for him. I didn't drive the 996tt to breakfast last week due to weather, and I forgot to grab it out of the car before I left in the Cayenne. So, I'll make sure he gets a couple this Saturday.
