Cambox & belt back on and now onto the quest to get this car ready to race in April @ Donington the first round of the 750MC Club Enduro Series: 
 
- Revised (35 degree angled + bonnet exit) Radiator position for more efficientcy and less aero drag
- Modify bonnet and front panel to house a Radiator exit / cowling
- Wider front (25mm) Rear (70mm) tracks for quicker weight transfer and higher lateral G cornering
- Wider Wheel Rims up to 9" (All 4) as above reason + balance change with (16" BBS RS Splitrims)
- Wider tyres from 215mm to 245mm (All 4)
- NEw Steel Wishbones being made, stronger than the current aluminium bespoke versions
- Higher rear spring rates, lower front rates to shift the balance from understeer to neutral
- Fit Oil & Water Temp STACK gauges for to monitor and see more accuracy on temps 
- Fit External Oil Cooler
- Make Side exit exhaust to free up rear area for:
- Design/ fabricate a Rear Diffuser 
- And lots more ….!

Here's a mock up where the rear wheels will sit, maybe a bit more further out as I'm fitting later 944 Rear trailing arms and hubs which will be another 29mm outwards.

The front has to go out because I've gone out an inch from 8 to 9" and the rims close to the strut.
It's also been kept as minimal as possible by changing the splitrim dishes / barrels and offset
as the plan is to get the car's rear to start to break away before the front and eradicate the current understeer.

Mild update: 
 
Most of this year might be written off before it gets going also! Because more mods are required to make the car more competitive! and we'd rather get everything done possible before Racing again...
 
So this means finishing off the Radiator relocation to create less drag and cool the Engine better + Cool the oil with a
Cooler also.
 
Remove the Servo and fit an adjustable (In cockpit) brake bias assembly and master twin circuit cylinders
& Change all 4 Brake Discs and pads
 
Make Bespoke front Steel wishbone / Castor struts to allow for more Castor adjustment and better strength
 
Fit late 944 Trailing arms to widen the rear track
 
Use 924 Carerra Gt-R front bodywork and arches (The rears have arrived see pic)
 
Modify the exhaust for a side exit, to enable more rear space for a Diffuser
 
Fit a Oil temp Gauge from a Sump sensor plug (Lindsey Racing)

Yes, that's a given! But we are at least Racing on a budget probably 1/5 of that of many others and some we're faster than so
that kinda makes the accolade more enjoyable...
 
We're gonna try some Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R…@ £900 a set! but the car is very kind on Tyres and they will do at least 3 races (2 or 3 hours)
 
Front & Rear New Discs and pads £600
 
The Gt-R fibre bodywork in total is about £1000
 
Then when we're ready to Race Entry fees are £600 - 700 a Meeting.....+ Fuel, Accommodation etc...

Now this Virus has taken hold of the world, it's even more of an excuse to write the year off and continue modifying the car...…… 
 
We're going for 944 Front wings now, also with some flared arch lips. 
 
There's also thoughts of a Floor mounted Pedal box / Master cylinder assembly and even Ap Racing calipers...

The car looks amazing and can clearly see the effort and commitment going in to it. With the current lockdown I'm going with the theory of you can't drive it, take it apart and sounds as though you're doing same.
 
Keep going, top skills and good luck 👍

Yes it's a time for sure where I'll not be needing to panic and reach a deadline to Race with it this year..! 
It's looking a bit of mess and sorry for itself really! but as long as I keep the vision and get everything done it'll be well worth it....

Great stuff as always.
It's so interesting to compare this car today with how it looked in its early days

Yes your totally right there....it's been a fair journey of changes for this car some mild but most extensive, intensive and lots of time (and money) has been spent transforming it
from stock to about 6 different specs and uses for road and race.
 
Back in 2012 it was bought for £1500 off ebay from Plymouth! 
Shame in some respect to of toyed with it big time (which there's no going back now!) as they are getting rarer on the road now,
but the modifications had far surpassed many other road car's I've modified (Probably 15+) to the point where Racing Motorbikes was getting too risky! 
 
So 911 & Porsche world who wanted, and did a feature on the car are to blame or thank! as it was them that wanted to test, and photograph the car @ an Oulton Park
Trackday, which it went ok but it wasn't mega for me but then my decade non stop in Racing (From 1994) was with 2 stroke Superkarts 125cc gearbox machines which go and handle like
not that much this side of F1!
 
But one of my mates fuelled the Racing idea / venture as he asked if I'd race with him in a Hot hatch Clio that needing preparing, which I would of done but I then thought 
hang on the Porsche has a huge spec so why not race that in a classic series ? Although the CSCC wouldn't let me race it because the 924 never had a 3.0 block fitted to it!
But I wasn't that keen on spending a £350 entry for 15 mins quali and a 20-30 min race, when I spotted the 750 motor club Enduro series which is 2 & 3 hour races at £300-350 each
(2 drivers) and with lots more time in the saddle (30 min quali and 2 -3hrs race = 1h 15 - 1h 45 each) and the grids are like 50 cars so plenty to go at..!
