A video of start up?! I was thinking more like a second gear 7k clutch drop. Smile Not really. I have zero desire to cause any damage to this car.

I doubt we will dyno it.... unless Dan wants too... we have one around the corner though... :-k :-k :-k :-k

I guess they had to contact a rubber company to custom make our valve stems... :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o

Why are the valve stems so difficult? Are these original Porsche rims or aftermarket?

Hey Gents, they are original Porsche rims so there shouldn't be anything special here.

As for putting it on a dyno, it might not be a bad idea if it is so close to KCW. The engine should be putting out close to 300 HP so not sure what that translates to at the rear wheels. I am sure John and/or Franz will personally dyno it. \:D/ \:D/

Are these Fuchs getting detailed? I always feel a non-detailed Fuch looks unfinished. If you have a detailed wheel around, toss one on to show the difference.
