Is that Palmer? I was there last year. In case you're interested, Brey Krause told me this was the tape to use to protect your roll bar paint from the extension clamps -

Club Motorsports. New track that literally just opened. $100,000 a year memberships. Will eventually have condos with garages that go right out to the track. SCDA ran there last week.

And this...



A 911 part finished in graphite gray from the factory. Just to change up the look a little.

Benís ball bearing short shift kit

Just ordered one up from Ben. Everyone has good things to say about it and the price is right. Might as well take the plunge while my center console is all apart.

Quick question, why do you store the car for the winter? It's perfectly capable in cold climates - I daily mine, and have just driven home through the snow (massively fun).

I did mine but I really can't tell or hear the slightest difference.

Not a huge difference but I think you can hear a little more intake noise.

I'm sure the car is capable. Drove a Miata for several years year round so not afraid to but I like to take care of my car and I have a truck to drive. New England winters are especially harsh on cars. Lot's of sand salt and chemicals used to treat the roads. Why sandblast my car and have nasty looking corrosion on all the metal bits if I don't need to? My car was from the south so the undercarriage looks brand new. Want to keep in that way.

Agree. Seems to be just a slight bit "throatier" on my 03. No harm in doing it, and you can always reinstall it. Biggest risk is breaking those flimsy clips that hold the outside grill (ask me how I know).

Hi grc, do you have an Indy that you have used and recommend in the area? I am in Northern MA up near the NH border and would be interested in your experience.

I agree with Tomikaze on the New Eng winters 100%. I am itching to get my car out and the cover off, but these 15oF (-10oC) mornings we are still getting makes me less inclined to do so. The snowbanks, bits of tree lying around after the storms, massive potholes and road salt are currently winning the head vs heart battle!

Paul.

Paul, I have used Autobahn Performance in Danvers, MA and am currently servicing with Automotive Engineering of Lexington, MA. If you are a PCA member (and I think its a good idea), you can ask some of your local fellow members. I suspect you would be in North Country Region.

Paul,

I misread. If you are in MA (east of Worcester or so), you would be in the Northeast Region (NER) of PCA. National PCA will assign you to the correct region. Check out our site here:

Spring is here (well, almost)!

Its easy to change regions. Just phone PCA National and they will take care of it on the spot. You will get a welcome email from me as soon as I get the notice!
