        I probably shouldn't be surprised but I am at how clean the donk is.

          997 shifter should fit a 996 and the shift is way better...

            This is awesome and good write up, I wondered what one of these is like to actually own.
            Gives me bad thoughts.

              997.1 is plastic junk like most 996. 997.2 has the steel bushes and slightly shorter throw but I prefer the longer throw of the cup shifter. Feels a bit more natural. Plus this shift kit was cheaper than a new 997 shifter.

                Might be worth investing in a set of travel wheels and tyres, so as to avoid flat-spotting the slicks.

                    Awesome! A Cup Car is definitely at the top of the list for a dedicated track car if I had the money.

                    Keep the write ups and photos coming.

                      Seems like a wise purchase, nice to see the level of interchange ability between road and race car, makes maintaining it at this level more reasonable. I heartily approve of a dedicated racecar rather than a street/track day car. I simply put 4 flat patches on my trailer for the trip to and from the track and the car is stored on stands between meetings with tyres wrapped in black cling wrap from CMTP, if left for the off season I'll treat the tyres before wrapping.

                        Good to have you back mate - very interested in your log and experiences with this bad boy - especially now that *knocks wood* the cooling system is sorted.

                          I would have just done the right rad while it was all apart - given that you've had 2 of the three fail....
                          Gearbox cooler is a heat exchanger type is it?

                                I thought about it but the right side was visibly newer looking so chanced it. The front bar is only about 45 minutes to get off so if it happens again no big deal. Yep the gearbox cooler is just a smaller version of the engine cooler. Have never heard of one failing though.

                                I know the owner of that car, he offered it to me a couple of years ago but I didn't have the cash at the time. It's mint from my understanding. What's the ask price? PM if you like.
