Don't forget all the K&N stickers that they then plaster on the car. Each may only be +5hp, but it adds up when you can't see through the side and read windows.
True that. That's why I haven't put my 9960utpost sticker on yet. I'm afraid it's going to hurt my Cars-n-Coffee times.
What's it matter? Didn't D(i)c already explain to you about what type of car you are driving?

My '99 would not pass in Hawaii. Almost zero suspension travel...and least when I lean on the thing. A 300 lb Samoan state inspector would probably get it to move...and dent the fender too, braddah!! :P

Didn't want to post this in Schnelly's thread about his car on the magazine cover. I'm more famous than Schnelly, was in the mag in at least 7 places. Here's an article I wrote that is in the highly coveted and collectible Schnelly Issue:

I assume you bought a new tent now that you have a 991, right?

For the record, only my 996 is famous. I'm infamous-only up in here, yo.

Also, weren't you already featured in Witness? Something about your Jeep getting stuck? :D :mrgreen:

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.

"If you see the barrier you’ve driven into, that’s understeer. If you hear yourself hitting the barrier, it’s oversteer."

^^^ That was just sour grapes from the Cayenne guy behind me following too close, and got dirt kicked onto his car from my wheels. Was never stuck.

hahaha... yea, that one I created for Woody. He freaked out when he noticed the oil filler goo (which we all know if normal when these cars sit up for long periods of time). He asked "what could be the cause of this problem" and boom... that's all I needed. I couldn't help but try to get him laughing with that graphic. hahahaha
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!
