    I just realised that I have never opened a thread for mine! Today we had a small tuning & styling car show in Rijeka, so I took the chance for a nice photo! I call this "Red on red"!

    An interesting exhibition on car design has opened in Rijeka. I was especially thrilled to find pre-production design castings in resin for our 916 among the exhibits! Of course, the GTV and Spider 916 series were designed by Enrico Fumia and won numerous awards, including "The World's Most Beautiful Automobile" in 1995.

    There is no Powerflex part for tracking arms, I bought the whole set long time ago and powerflexed all I could. There is a uniball option but no need now, I am happy with the setup.

    I was tormented by Darko and Denis' comments in Autoservis Bivio that they don't like how soft the rubber is on the new Optimal track control arms (the spare part I put on because my originals were stuck and couldn't be adjusted). And then I researched the net and asked for the opinion of every mechanic I know. Everyone told me the same thing - that a certain elasticity must exist, but that it is not good when it is too soft. Equally, everyone agreed that I would find it hard to see any difference in driving on the road, that such finesse can only be felt on the track. And here I agree, but as my OCD bothered me, and the Domenigni service managed to repair my old track control arms, I decided to do it all over again, return the harder OEM and then re-fix it all. Well, now my heart is in peace! I’m joking that I go to trap optics more often than women go to the hairdresser! Fortunately, this is far cheaper! I did the replacement of softer (color red, Optimal) for harder (yellow, original OEM) track arms. The difference in the fix is obvious! Obviously replacement parts are never as good as OEM.

    I always have only warm feelings when I see some 916 parked in front of the house.

    As I promised, here are my impressions after the test drive, it was constantly raining, so I postponed the test ... The car handles nicely! My test route is a very nice piece of sea road from Mošćenička Draga to Brseč and back. There is no drastic difference compared to before the rebuild, the only thing I felt is that the "rear steering effect" that I have lost after the Powerflexing is now partialy back. Although the all Powerflex bushes have remained, the other rubber parts have been replaced, and the “track adjusters” are now new and elastic. OK, what does that mean in practice in a slow sharp bend? This means that the rear end, when on the edge of the traction will start to slide, but lightly, just enough for the driver to feel that he is on the edge. I prefer it to start sliding slightly than to hold to the very edge and then just fly away. (For those who don't follow the topic, if you wonder since when is the oversteer a problem on FWD car - I have LSD installed, so it disrupted the usual understeer of a nose heavy GTV.) On the end, everything is ok and I am very satisfied. Good job!
