"Porscha" Build

Finally finished most of the track build on my Boxster S. Took her to Thunderhill Raceway last weekend for a shakedown.

Shakedown went well. First time trying the EBC Bluestuff pads and there was no brake fade when used in combination with stainless lines and Motul 600 fluid. However, the initial bite of the pads is not up to par with Pagids but that is to be expected.

I brought the gopro but unfortunately forgot to charge it. I will be recording the next track day at thunderhill in a couple months. I have a couple fly by videos from a phone that I will upload when I get a chance.

The seats in conjunction with the 6 point harnesses worked extremely well and prevented any unwanted movement. A huge change was to floor mount the racing seats which allowed for better feel of what the car is doing as well as prevent flex caused by sliders.

I saw the first picture and immediately went "WOOOAH"

The wheels and headlights look really good on it! Even though I'm not a fan of those lights on other colors.
