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 …

Newbie needs help

Post  bp944 on Sun Jun 13, 2010 9:52 pm

I'm looking to build up a 944 track day/daily driver. I know I'm a little crazy but I want to run this in the winter in Minnesota. That means I need to be able to raise it a good amount. High enough to get over good sized speed bumps and low enough to be a decent track car.

I'm not slamming my car or lowering it. I'm talking about putting track racing coilovers on it. I just can't have it that low or I'll bottom out. Am I totally off the mark or something?

Aftermarket coilovers, such as Paragon or Ground Control, are adjustable. You can maintain factory ride height, no problem. You could change your (ride-height) setup and alignment before going to the track, then reset to factory specs after you get back from the track. Camber will require changes after height adjustment, BTW.

What would it take for me to do all that by myself, aligning tires and all? Or is a professional just the way to go?

Get the front-end aligned professionally before the track event.
OR, leave the factory alignment in place.
Even for a track day.

With quality coilovers and struts, factory alignment settings will be more than adequate for the occasional track day, unless you're Boris Said...
