    Greetings from Wonderful????? Wyoiming at 130!!

    Here's my chique functional Valentine gen 2 mount I fashioned - Mike I'll give you the design for free. In many cases it seems to have more range but still does not pick up over small dips and hills. I brought a back up unit as I read Mike is having many failures on this new one.

    The Touring is truly a Porsche in the spirit of a 73 S - modernised!!! Smiley

    Gear set great, no tramline, minimal hunting, good high speed cornering, quick but of course not GT2RS quick 100 up.  Never in my life of 62 Porsches have I ever gotten 320 miles to a tank at 100-130 mph a plus.  But of course I was running interstate not the 100-160 of two lane back roads, so maybe not a fair comparison.

    What have we learned other than the RIG is the TITZ?

    America's Heart is beating with power, even though the Coasts are rotten.  Productive real goods:  WY is a heart of ranching, mining and oil and gas. NB is a heart of oil and farming and ranching, green with trees and amazing water.  IA is a giant green farm, only blighted by toxic filthy wind mills.  A study on what happens to the ecology and agriculture when the windmills kill all the birds and bats is needed.

    One picture of life -- 600 trucks logging required sleep time at one truck stop, carrying manufactured goods.  This Nation --- Just fkg alive.wink

    Agree on the windmills. Hideous. Farmers around here lease some land to the power companies to make extra money, and the eco-freaks call this a win:

    Haha,

    He likes his Touring! Great snacks, great snoozes, hammer down. 3900 miles of tiring fun.

    After getting petrol near Chicago outbound, behold the evil engine light!!mail. Luckily it ran another 400 miles to pick up Sabre, ...... and another 1950 back with out crapping out.

    And it gave an opportunity for roadside to pay for the 3 hour tow from home to the dealer, and replace the windscreen which cracked from a rock in WY home bound.

    IMG_0323.jpeg

    Net/Net

    It runs well and seems fast enough loping along 105-135mph on the freeway, where most of our cops reside.

    But get it on the Wyoming 2 lane, and suddenly ..... the gears seems too tall..... 110 3rd, 140 4th [not], .... and finally you realise this what a turbo S is for:  slowing to clear a hill or identify oncoming, then hammering to 155-165 mph, over and over again.  It just is too power and torque short for that , to be as efficient as a turbo.

    But all in all, my favourite 911.  Less showy than GT2RS, much more nimble than a turbo S when slicing and dicing heavy traffic on 2 lane in the rain, you can just drop it in between tight cars over and over and over.  Obviously you can run harder in big rain in a turbo S, but just changing off Cup 2s would improve deep rain speeds.

    If you don't use its capabilities, it's really not worth owning. 

    And a life based on managing risk and uncertainty -- applied to speeding -- generates good outcomes: zero tickets.wink

    Generally guys use lawyers WHEN they get a ticket, not when they don't.

    When you're dressed for winter and there's no lake around, even at 70F, Sun Ra and Sabre make do:

    It's 80 F now at 6000', and in the 70's at 9,000', with a young black pup, we only hike where there's water now, as he poops out after two hours without. 

    Sabre has a great can do spirit and fits right in with uskiss
