And another thing..

Thanks to inspiration from this thread, my 996 now sports a Deltran Battery Tender battery, in the CLR stylee. The lack of mass is very apparent when driving and apart from going to H&R coilovers, it's the biggest difference I've felt from any mod. I had thought that taking 15KG out of the car from within the wheelbase was not going to make all that much difference, but it really shows.

Thanks for showing the way Richard!

Take good care of yourself Richie.

When my mum died suddenly in 2011 and then my dad 2 years later it was a double hammer blow. Death and grief can be brutal.

But we all find our way. And so will you.

You, be you. And do whatever you need. You’re already extraordinary. The talent that’s within you is a gift. If you park it up that’s okay. It’ll still be there if you choose to drive forward again.

Slainte mhath Cheers

Sorry to hear about your loss. It's a terrible, but unfortunately inevitable part of this life business. You've been an inspiration to many on here, taking in work which leaves me shaking my head in amazement of what people are capable of.
As far as "man up" thing, put that thought in the bin. There is no rule book on how we each choose to live our lives, and if you wish to tag out for a while to smell the roses, you crack on. If smelling the roses becomes full time, then you crack on as well.
I can only offer one piece of advice. Health, whilst you go through this discovery phase, exercise must be a key part of your life. The physical benefit, along with the mental benefits of exercise will help keeping your mind from wandering into the dark depths. Plenty of my mates have gone through rough patches, and my observations on them has seen positivity return as soon as they put the runners on or get the bike back out.
Good luck with your new journey, what ever that looks like

ELA,

Where did you get your mirrors from?

Cheers

Mirrors finally ready and have been shipped out today Very Happy







Terra I have nothing scientific to verify the CofG or Weight distribution just yet but I did some high speed testing last week (multiple 150mph runs upto 181mph) and the front end, upto say 165 seemed quite stable. from 165-180 it was light but how this compares to stock I can't remember and also at this speed on public roads (legally over here), the concentration levels are perhaps skewing your ability to focus as intently as you would like into just this one area.
