    Cayman S on the track for 1st time last week

    It was a load of fun. Did a 'practice' day at Oran Park (Sydney). 95% cars there were Porsches, some nice GT2s, 996TTs and a stack of beautiful GT3s (and a RS).

    CaymanS was very confident in all situations (where driver got it right & slightly wrong). Noticed the brakes had a lot more fade than what my C4S had. (dealer recommended in 'upgrading' the brake fluid). Cornering speeds were excellent, but on one particular corner (on exit) it was hard to keep the PSM from getting in the way.

    My tyres (Mich N's) were hammered, rubber melted / embedded everywhere even though I dropped the psi by about 10. They were OK for about 6 laps, then they needed a rest! I think I need some R spec's ASAP.

    I can't but wonder what PASM / sport button / -20mm would be like.

    Just done under 2,000km in the car so far, and it just keeps giving me good surprises. These cars are way under-rated!

    place a Ruf supercharger onto your engine, you will be the one in front of the pack, faster than any of the 911s

    Wait for the warranty to expire first - don't want the engine to expire before the warrany

    hmmm, i love the RS but i'm not fond of the Silver/Orange paintjob

    Re: Cayman S on the track for 1st time last week

    Nice experience! I'd suggest to change tyres and opt for Michelin Sport Cup tyres, they'll hold much better on track, more in a slick tyre manner, with the possibility to drive back by road...
