Our 1970 Carrera Light Weight Race Car
PAGE #2 BELOW - SEE MANY OF OUR RACE TRACK PHOTOS
"Mini Wavos" ... Our special 911 full race Porsche that we run mostly at Thunder Hill's 3 mile road race track. We purchased this car years ago
from one of my best friends Joe Wong .... who is now one of the fastest amateur race car drivers around anywhere! 11/14/2015 .. I think Joe still
holds the track record at Thunder Hill's 3 mile section with his Porsche GT2 (800 Horse Power). 1 minute and 40 seconds or so.
Becky and I have been to Sebring, etc. as I documented his racing during the some of his GT3 racing seasons.
We race only for fun ... Becky pit crews much of the time .... (Our race trailer and 5th Wheel have nice awnings for shade) ...We do almost
all club racing and open test days .... We have run with many great sports car clubs .... The Ferrari Club many times ... Laps Unlimited,
Nor Cal Racing, Club Z, POC, PCA, etc. etc. ... But the most fun is doing Open Test Days and almost exclusively at 3 mile long Thunder Hill
Race Track in Willows Ca....
Our 911 Light Weight weighs in at about 2,145 lbs .... Don Goodman, formerly with a Willow Springs racing group and now with Classic Car
Imports, has built us an amazing 250 H.P. 2.5L S Stroker racing motor with all the Carrera Ultra - Light engine parts .. I.E. ...
Aluminum fly wheel , etc. Plus current upgrades ...(a much better motor than the orignal 190hp 2.7L engine) and he just recently (2005)
rebuilt the 915 tranny with all racing grade parts ... mainly new syncros needed.
This car has full race suspension, etc. ... Red line is now near 9000 rpm. and pulls very hard through 8400 rpm ... (as far as I have
taken it ... I have my shifting light set at 7900 rpm) ... leaves me a little room ... This car has the Carrera Ultra Lite IDS Weber
carburetors (but Richard had us plug the secondary fuel line).... This Carb is built to the max .. as per Richard who owns PMO carburetors ...
formerly Weber Carburetor. Large jets, everything ported, polished, baffles by Chuck Reed .... decked, full race manifold with Super
Trap mufflers. We have a large full Halon fire system to the fuel, driver and engine compartments. Custom almost invisible hand
built roll bar by David Tayor at his racing groups garage.
Eventually I want to run with one of the vintage (1973 and earlier) racing clubs out there.
