HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Well I ran the car Sunday and the car is much faster, it pulls out of the turns like a mule! I was able to rotate the car with the gas pedal and carry speed down the straights. With the open diff I only got into 5th gear on the backstretch, now I'm into 5th gear on all the main straights Very Happy Unfortunately a front seal leak ended the day after the first session. would I do this to a street car, no way but I'm real happy with it's track performance and hope it will be somewhat durable! Thanks for everyones help and advice.

Yay.

Idea, questions, experiment, result (positive in this case).

This is a lot like a ton of other things out there, you don't really know until you try (or 5 of us do). I was going to ask what type of tire you are running, cause that would affect your results. Great that it worked out. Oh yea I too agree witht the poster of about old greasy diff gears. Let us know all about it a bit better detail please.

tires used (utqg rating)
Diff before (n/a?)
Diff after (did you also freshen anything while there?)
Gears trans and diff
Process of welding
Etc thanks.

Hey gamman I have to agree with you so here goes, I had brand new heat cycled hankook r compound 225 50 16f and 255 50 16r on fuch 7 and 8 inch rims. The car is an 86 944 turbo I;m pretty sure the trans was changed from stock, open rear. I used an 85.5 stock trans axle that was from the original swap car and I had sitting around as a spare. The trans was tig welded by a pro welder. Unfortunately I only ran one warm up session and about 5 laps at speed before the front trans seal started leaking and ended my day. Totally my fault as I did not change that one due to running out of time and availability of the seal. The car was much faster, I could get on the gas sooner and it helped rotate the nose on exit can't wait to get to the track again. I wouldn't think of doing this to a street car as it would be undrivable. All I can say is there is a reason it's called a peg leg! as for how long it will last I'll see and update if I have any problems, though I might not run again until late Feb, hope this helps

slicks?

Post  gamman on Mon Dec 26, 2011 10:45 pm

this worked with slicks? uh, not at all what i was thinking. some of the racers i know that have done it (apart from ice/rally racing where there is no grippy surface- a lot of them have done it) on asphalt, didnt suggest it would work well with slicks. oh well,good you had positive results. keep us informed. and maybe describe the peg leg, is that the understeer the others said youd get?

The peg leg was the open diff, only one wheel getting power hence the term peg leg. Coming out of a turn I would usually spin the inside wheel and I feel would push more than now. Of course i'd rather have a limited slip as it would be faster but that wasn't in the budget
