The Racing Season Begins Now. The Prep at Least.

I just dragged my 944 out of storage this morning and brought it back to my house to prep for the season. On the list are new front pads and rotors. New tires. New alignment. And lots of other small things, like making it safer.

One small, $30, step was installing a fire-proof shift boot in place of my fancy red leather one. The leather looked cool, but would not have protected the cabin from flames. And the shifter opening is often a place fire creeps in. Should give me a few more seconds to get out of the car in an emergency.

Thinking I might replace the zipties with hose clamps for even more protection.
