Re: BRZ or used Porsche or ??? to replace S2000 for daily/track?

Yeah, "Performance Package" comes with bigger Brembo brakes (and Sachs shocks/struts), which appear to be adequate for 2800 lb. and 200hp :P

I don't think wider tires are a problem. With stock hp I don't think there's much to be gained beyond ~245, which should easily fit.

Re: BRZ or used Porsche or ??? to replace S2000 for daily/track?

I'd go with a clean base model 987.2. You can find them for reasonable money and they are more reliable and ready for track duty than the 987.1 cars. Yeah, after thorough interwebz investigationz, 987.2 is the way to go even at +$10k over 987.1. No IMS worries and better oiling under track conditio...

Re: BRZ or used Porsche or ??? to replace S2000 for daily/track?

BRZ / FRS then! Looking that way! If the BRZ/FRS can be had now for $15-$17k used with decent mileage it’s a hard to deal beat. I haven’t really followed them recently. If I were looking I’d get the Subaru model with HID lamps and the nicer interior cloth, proximity key. I forgot if it’s the “limit...

Re: BRZ or used Porsche or ??? to replace S2000 for daily/track?

I think the BRZ/FRS is your best option; although when I looked at them I felt the trunk/rear seat was so usless that I might as well have a MX5 convertible. Useless? For 2 full sized adults maybe, but you can put a lot of *stuff* back there. And you can fold down the seatbacks and fit four race wh...

Yes. If there's a very good (in stop/go on the street as well as at the track) dual-clutch automated manual out there for reasonable $$$ I'd be willing to give it a try.

BRZ or used Porsche or ??? to replace S2000 for daily/track?

Daily-driver and sometime track S2000 is getting on in years and miles (over 250k!), thinking about a replacement. Requirements: rwd, relatively lightweight, fixed roof preferred, somewhat reliable as a daily and backup track car. BRZ is the only new car on the radar. Relatively lightweight at ~2750...

aluminum driveshaft rebuild/repair shop?

Driveshaft broked at Palmer! It was shortened a couple of years ago when the T56 Magnum was swapped in, I think the welding might have been done improperly/poorly :( Does anyone know of a known-competent rebuild/repair shop for racing aluminum driveshaft? Near FasTrak in Peabody preferably :P broken...

M4 convertible, roll bar required?

A friend is interested in tracking his M4 retractable-hardtop convertible. It has rollover protection in the form of a roll-bar type structure that deploys in event of rollover.

Is an additional fixed roll bar required for this car to run a COM event?

Thanks!
