Ben's Silver SC

did you see the silver 993 on pistonheads? weight stripped out, half cage, plexi-glass all round, RS mods.  Looked superb, would compliment your lightweight IB racer Ben ;)  Rare to see a 993 given the lightweight hotrod treatment but appeals to me as always thought the 993 a bit lardy for old school pork. Guess it was the first of the 911 range to rely on more engine muscle to shift the extra comfort weight along :(

 

haven't seen that, always love a track car conversion so will have a search for it. I certainly can't afford 2 track cars, but would like a 993 engine to go in the SC!!

First track day in ages and loved it!

Car went great all day and the thrashing around circuit freed up the stuck fuel gauge! 

(had forgotten how crap the headlights were! had forgotten how offset the accelerator pedal is! had forgotten how crap the wipers are!

but none of those mattered anyway!)

 

had some exhaust bits made a while back as had previously been cautioned on drive by noise limits.

Car registered at 102Db static and no issues with drive by at all :)

with last year a complete non event I can't wait to get back on track with this car and to catch up with IBers again.

Have a mate who is booking into sprint and hill climb events so might give that a go as well - any excuse to get behind the wheel as soon as we can!

 

Happy 2021 to all!

HNY Ben, hope you are well - managed about 3 trackdays in the Cayman last year and 2 in the M3.  Had Silverstone booked on 30th January, but thats cancelled, but lets hope to get something together at some point.

 I so love that rear bumper, forgot what it looked like, marvellous :bowdown:

Still haven’t sprayed it silver yet - only been about 4 years!!!

 Not sure why, but I kinda like the fact you haven’t.

thought about painting the front black?

I hadn’t, but never say never. 
 

always up for trying different things with this car. 
 

really want to get back into stripping bits off it and tidying up other bits. 
need to plan my next attack!

Hi Ben 👋

It would look good with black plates (as a 79 you’d be allowed to as well)... 

Oulton RS day is coming up... if we’re allowed out by then!

Hey mate! Hope you’re keeping well. 

I’ve actually got a pair of black plate stickers made up I think. 
have been waiting to respray the rear bumper before swapping over.

Oulton RS day tickets haven’t been announced yet have they?

would love to be there again if it’s possible

in an attempt to have something to look forward to (as this lockdown is doing my head in!) I've registered with the HSA to do some sprints and hill climbs!

still hoping to get some track days in (can't wait for those)

@ALEX P I’ve just booked a track day at Mallory Park if you fancy it?

Sounds fun mate but Lockdown #3 boredom got the better of me...

Great day had a Mallory Park last week - weather was amazing!!!

Small track and only about a 1 min per lap, but always fun to try out another circuit, with plenty of overtaking to be had. 

It was run by Javelin and have to say that from a Covid point of view it was really well organised, in fact the whole day was run really well.

Only a couple of Porsches on the day and my fav image is of me skinning a 996!!!

Car ran great and now need to get on a book some more in!
