    @theclutch while I dont have the total number of track days, I would say the owner would do 3-5 events a year. This track package that we installed is for drivers who use the car to its abilities. The owner is an ex-clubracer.

    Hmm... I guess "some track time including of a few driver education events" is all relative given that the car is outfitted with a SOLO timer, camera, rollcage, modified ECU, changed headers and catalyst, etc... "Some track time"... lol Granted, these cars are made to be driven on the track.

    @Jamesboyd58 the car has a cobb tuning access port so its really simple to tune back to stock. The DSC controller really optimizes the PASM system for the track without taking away the daily street ability of the car. Its almost a no brainer for any PASM cars!

    @speedsportstuning Would you be able to flash it back to a 91 octane tune? I don’t have easy access to 93. What do you think of the DSC? I have it on my 991.2 and I love it. Great car BTW with excellent choice of performance and track modifications.
