    It'll be difficult for Dreamcar to get his fishing rods in with it in place!



    I am having so much success with fishing that I am selling my rods and buying a trawler.



    Well, the bad news is that the EU is reducing your cod-catching limit.



    I don't go for cod, fortunately - my speciality is a certain member of the crocodile family.

    I have to say that I am very much impressed about the advantages of the -20mm/LSD set-up (compared to the PASM) and would like to see what this set-up could do in the Boxster S or Cayman S (unfortunately not available )




    Porsche-Jeck, Thanks for your post and all those details. I was deciding between a 997S (with 10k on it) and Cayman S. I've put my order in for the Cayman S, and I have tee'd up with the dealer to fit KW v3 (height, bump and rebound indepentantly adjustable) coilovers.

    I'm pointing this out to you as it will allow -20mm (and more if need be) as well as tightening the damping for track work. Presumably the same set would fit your Boxster also.

    I agree that it's a pity that it isn't a factory option, but getting them dealer supplied is the next best thing (I made it a condition of the sale). Incidentally the KW's are made in Germany and have a lifetime warranty.

    Keep up the good posts,
    Andy

    Finally, a trustable Cayman S track test done by Sport Auto:

    Hockenheim Kleiner Ring (2.6 km): 1 min 15,5 sec. .
    Pretty impressive performance for such a car.

    For comparison:
    997 Carrera S: 1 min 14,3 sec.
    997 Carrera S Powerkit/20 mm chassis: 1 min 13,7 sec.

    Since Hockenheim Kleiner Kurs favors light and handling optimized cars, the track time difference on the Nordschleife would be much bigger.

    Oh, btw: the Cayman S was only 64 kg lighter than the tested 997 Carrera S Powerkit.

    Case closed.




    Didn't realise the Cayman was on trial, but any away.

    Trusted because it shows the 997 S was faster?
    Articles that show the Cayman faster are not to be trusted I assume?




    Exactly

    Any test which shows the 911 as superior is always trusted on here, haven't you learnt that by now , I'd expect the 911 to be quicker btw
