    That's a great little car Doug, I've always thought we should have it in PC2. Maybe one day.

    Great read thank you for posting this it really demonstrates the dedication that has been put into the creation of these cars. Each car really does feel alive and full of character.

    Thanks for those example lap times too, good to know I'm in the right ball park. The 908 is truly special at the Nordshcleife so intuitive even at and sometimes beyond the limit of grip.

The ballast was placed to off set my weight and get the car as balanced as possible on all four corners it was 45/55 weight balance, which imho is nearly perfect for a racecar. 7 lap records and 31 wins in a short time span proved it out.
    So to convert it to metric that is 807kg + 68kg ballast. Totalling 875kg.
    You had to bring it back up quite a bit, but converting it to metric I realize just how much it did allow you to find a sweat spot for your CoG.

    I guess you also placed the fuel tank in a different spot than normal? Since you build a new chassis and I am guessing regulations would dictate how big and of what materials a fuel tank should be. Unless of course that location was fixed too.


    She really sounds like a great car, Doug. A weight ratio of 45/55 with that car is a nice achievement.

    How many cars did you end up racing or even building?

    Although i did have a few original 914/6's this race car was built completly from scratch. I bought a new windshield / cowl from the dealer , a spare top i had, plus the rear tailight section was removed from a wreck - and the rest was fabricated or fiberglass. So no original Six was cut up.

    I built Porsche racecars for a living for about 12 years , so quite a few , mostly 911's , and still do dabble in it. Personally i raced a tub 914/6, this tube frame 914/6 and a 911 RSR clone that i co drove in long HSR races in the 90's.

    The GTL 914 has a little bug in the rear tyres. If you have the steam version or decrypted version go to steam - steamapps - common - GT Legends - gamedata - teams and find the Dunlop DO1J.tyr file

    open it with notepad and look for the line

    Temperatures=(9.0,20.0)

    a few lines off the bottom. Edit the 9.0 to read 90.0 It will stop your rear tyres overheating

    With those skills and that knowledge I wish I was your neighbor. If you'd be willing to help this poor sod in making his own Porsche or restore one, and teach a younger generation a thing or two. I'd love to own an old Carrera RS or even just a clone, but with today's Porsche prices... Ouch!

    12 years of race car building knowledge and skills. That's something to surely be proud of.
    Although I do wonder. I never knew Porsche was a big thing (on the roads) in the USA or any Euro car for that matter compared to natively produced cars. How did you end up with such an job where you'd end up building Porsches for such a long time?

    Somehow I start to feel like an interviewer now. I just admire you and everyone else in the team, and each of you have such interesting backgrounds. I mean, in your case you got to building foreign cars, build them for racing from scratch. Than end up being successful whilst racing your own creations, than only to somehow end up with Papyrus and sim racing. Only to finally settle down at Ian's place which is now called Slightly Mad Studios.

    Quite a career and legacy in my opinion, and that's just Doug Arnao we're talking about. There is this whole bunch of other slightly mad folk with some crazy history of their own.
