Well, perhaps you were lucky. Over the years, I've had two 97's pass thru the shop, one on 18's, one on 19's, and both with the exact chassis problems mentioned in the Excellence article, neither had ever been on a track to my knowledge. Neither was easily repairable (one I believe was eventually parted out). I would also note that there is a lot of chatter amongst the Spec Boxster crowd against buying the 97 chassis for the same reasons. Can't all be a myth................
