Couldn't have been me since I don't own a 911.

And, I was not in California recently.

And, just for your info, I can drive very well and fast.

Nah, it's not one of those. This kind. Usually I can hit at least 25 at the bottom, which helps a lot going up the other side. This time, I had to slow to 12 mph so as not to run up his Porsche Ass.

1,000 dollars on pedals is out of the question.

This is why I don't have a power meter.

I was thinking of the kind where you will bottom out if going too fast in the car.

Gotcha. I realize "dip" is rather nonspecific. I don't have a better name for it.

Because it's ******g old, pre-dates crank-arm power meters by a decade and is of a construction type that's different than what the strain gauges are configured for?

Apples-to-oranges - you can get single-sided power meter pedals for considerably less than $1k.

Can I get one pedal for around 260.00 dollars?

Last year, I saw the Assioma Favero Uno on sale for $254. I dawdled. I missed it. Now it's nearly twice that. :bang:

Interesting. Yeah, you get the distance and rough direction from your previous guess. I like it. Had to cheat today to even get it in 6 while experimenting to figure out the rules.

I would absolutely drive a Boxster and let the haters hate, but I don't understand the 911 Cabrio, Ferrari convertibles, or all of that nonsense. If the car is fast, make it a fixed-roof. If it's a convertible, not bothering with top-end go-fast bits. I really don't get it.

Classy can; old can't.

Boxster is fine and are loads of fun. They are what they were designed to be. I was specifically referring to the 911.

Cab 911s are all over the place, don't hold value, and are not good as performance cars. They are gold chains and silk sweater cars. They are not "wear a helmet" cars. Only a coupe can be a real 911. IMHO as a past owner.

Mojo31 05-23-22 01:27 PM

I'm not aware of any racing class that has ever included 911 Cabriolets.

genejockey 05-23-22 01:28 PM

Though, to be fair....

Oh, lighten up, Francis. It was an opportunity to post pictures of really cool race cars.

Also tells you how old I am that those are what came to mind.

Do some work to improve your FGP (Functional Google Power).

400 dollars for uno pedal. I think it would be cheaper to go 105 R7000 complete group set and buy a stages. Thinking long terms.

I agree that they are both pretty cool cars from our day. Don't forget, I'm your age.

944 over modern Boxster? Uh, no.

944 over old Boxster, perhaps. 944s are making a comeback with the collectors.

Looks like a wanna be miata, but what do I know. I drive a mini van.

I'd rather have a Cayman than a Boxster, but that's because I'm an old bald coot.
