Default Hello Everyone

I am so glad I found this site; the amount of reading material will help get through winter season hopefully

I have a 2006 Cayman S that is stock with the exception of track wheels and R888s, and brake cooling. I have been enjoying the car tremendously as a DD and DE car. I have had a little over 40 track days with it, and track days have become my primary hobby, enjoying every minute of them.

I hope to participate in discussions and add to the forums.

Cheers,

Which brake cooling solution? The GT3 brake ducts on the lower front arms?

Thank you all for the welcomes.

I actually got NACA ducts coming from the center front into the rotors. Which was not the simplest installation as the nose of the Caymans, as is with the 911s, is quite full of radiator piping and wiring. Also, fitting 3" ducts into the wheel well without rubbing required some minor fabrication as well as the fitting onto the oem rotor dust covers. So, painful as the installation was, it was very well worth it; no fade of any kind and very consistent pedal feel all the time
