Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

By the time you are reading this,Wendy, Jasmine,

and I (and at least 30 of our Maverick friends)

will be in Boise for Parade. We are looking

forward to the full (and I do mean full!) week of

activities, but not necessarily the long drive. Parts of

the drive up will be fun for me, as I will stop in

several towns in Wyoming where I was raised. It

should be interesting to see what 25 years has done to

the places I used to live. I sure know what the 25 years has done to me!

As per our bylaws, the nominating committee for next

year’s officers has been formed. Lanean Hughes will chair it,

with Wendy Shoffit and Bill Dugan serving as well. If you want to run for

an office (President, Vice-President, Secretary, or Treasurer), be sure to let

one of them know (see the contact info in the front of Slipstream for

email addresses and phone numbers). You can also reach ALL of them

by sending an email to nominations@mavpca.org.

I just got back from the second monthly Bedford Lunch for those of

us working and living in 817-land. We nearly doubled attendance – we

jumped up to 9 luncheoners from only 5 at last months. Of course last

month, I didn’t give much notice! So if you want to come to the Bedford

Lunch, remember it is on the 3rd Tuesday at the Good Eats in Bedford

just South of 183 on Bedford Road.

Joel Nannis was at the last Board Meeting and reported we crossed

the 1,000 member barrier! We had hovered within 50 of it for quite some

time, and it looks like we might stay above 1,000 for a while!

Congratulations, Mavericks!

With a few more autocrosses are under our belt, and after a

wheel/tire disaster or two, Wendy and I finally felt like we had a good

racing weekend. At Autocross/Time Trial 3 on June 29 & 30, I ended up

changing tires twice at the event. Back at TMS I discovered a crack in a

wheel, which was part of my only set of 15” wheels. So I had nearly-new

Toyos with no wheels to run them on. I bought a set of 15” Fuchs with

Hoosiers on them, but wanted to save the Hoosiers for later in the year.

And I had corded half a set of my 16” tires. So I mixed a set of 16” wheels

and tires together and ended up with 8” wide wheels with 245/45 tires all

four corners.

I was told this would work, but apparently only after you have tightened

up your suspension. Wendy had volumes of smoke coming out

where the tire rubbed the wheel well under compression. So I put on the

Hoosiers and ran a mix-matched set. They of course warmed at different

speeds and every lap was more than a challenge – it was a full-scale

adventure! So then I put the 15” bright yellow Fuchs with Hoosiers on all

four corners, and Wendy and I never figured out what pressures we

should run or how to drive them. It was a fairly frustrating weekend.

During the two-week period between Autocross weekends, I had the

Hoosiers taken off and the Toyos put on the yellow Fuchs. I got the

pressures dialed in on Saturday and all day Sunday Wendy and I had

an absolute blast. It’s amazing how much fun it can be when a plan

comes together!

...crossed the 1,000 member barrier . . .

I will discuss the Toyo Proxes RA-1s more as the year

progresses, but on Saturday and Sunday, I was running very good times

(for me) and I am pretty sure I was faster on the Toyos than I would have

been on Kumho Victoracers. They make more noise and cost more, but

the stick and longevity just might be worth the tradeoff. I will know more

about longevity later in the year!

One other note on Autocrosses and Time Trials – we are trying some

new things out this year. On October 5th and 6th, we will be having TWO

Time Trials back to back. This will allow some of our Sunday-only

participants to enjoy a Time Trial. And Autocross 6 has been moved from

October 20th to October 19th, and the location will be Mineral Wells - so

we will be having a Saturday Autocross as well this year.

Don’t forget the lunches, the Happy Hours, and the Post-Parade

Wrap-Up Party at the Prairie House on August 17th.

So come on out, and join the fun!

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

Where to start this month? I would like

to thank so many Maverick members

for their sympathy and compassion

towards me and my family after the sudden

death of my mother. I’m still reeling from it,

but having so many friends offering me such

reassuring words has helped. I don’t know what

I would do without so many people to keep me

strong. I am truly blessed in my life. My mother knew it and was

happy for me. I hope I can make her proud.

As they say, though...life must go on. I’m proud to announce

that Matt Platts has volunteered to be next year’s editor. With

Parade 2004 being in Fort Worth, I will be extremely busy with

that. I know that Matt will do an excellent job!

I’d like to talk about what a great time I had driving at the

MSR DE (I enjoyed people telling me how FAST I was and not

just how smooth I was). I’d also love to mention how much fun

it was at the last Time Trial and Autocross (once James got all the

tire problems worked out). The Father’s Day Picnic would also be

nice to cover (it was amazing at the Ruehs’ house). I’d love to get

into all these events, but I’m really pressed for space in this issue.

Suffice it to say that I’ve been having a lot of fun, which is just

what my mother would have wanted me to do. While her body

won’t be able to go with us to Parade this year, her spirit will be

with us, loving every minute of it.

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Secretary

The July Board meeting was held on July 9

at the always festive and friendly home of

Wendy and James Shoffit. The pre-meeting

dinner included a variety of foods as well as a very

special chocolate cake; the cake alone was worth the

trip. James got the meeting started at 7:03 and

quickly launched into his agenda.

The first order of business was a motion

requesting approval to spend money for the construction of radio

charging trays for the new radios. The motion passed and we hope to

see the new charging trays in action at the next driving event. Now

that our region has more (new) radios, other car clubs have asked to

borrow them for their driving events. So the next order of business

was to permit the rental of the region’s radios to other car clubs for a

rental fee per event.

Cody Sears and Bill Dugan reported on the June AX/TT

weekend. Everyone had a great time despite the rain. Several Ford

Contour drivers participated as well.

Maverick Region is celebrating its 40th Anniversary and PCA

National has sent custom-made window stickers to commemorate the

occasion. Stickers will be handed out at all the events, so if you want

one you need to attend any of the numerous events including Happy

Hours, Driving Events, Lunches and Board Meetings.

In Loving Memory of

June Goochey

June 9, 1944 - July 5, 2002

We may never understand why someone

caring, kind, and good

Would have to leave us long before we

ever thought they would,

Yet, comfort comes in knowing God

is with us every day

And grieves with us when one so full

of goodness slips away.

And so, we trust His steadfast love

through sorrow, pain, and fears,

As He holds us gently in His arms

and wipes away our tears.

Emily Matthews

Thanks to all of you who

have provided warmth

and comfort to the Shoffit

family as we mourn the

loss of my mother.

Teri Davis updated us on the status of the summer retreat

scheduled for August 23,24,25. She reported that everything is ready

to go and if you wish to come cool off at The Cliffs Resort on Possum

Kingdom Lake contact Teri Davis as soon as possible so that you don’t

miss out on any of the festivities. Check out the Maverick web site for

all the details.

Joel Nannis reported that Maverick Region has finally broken

past the 1000 member mark and is still growing! If you are one of the

many new members or even one that has been around for a few years,

come out to any of the social and driving events and meet some of

your fellow Porsche enthusiasts.

The Meeting closed at 8:15. Join us next board meeting August 7.

Maverick Region PCA Board

Meetings are held once a month.

The meetings are open to all PCA members and

your suggestions and opinions are welcome.

And there’s free food!

Happy Hour At Saltgrass

by Craig Smith

Even though Chris (my mother)

and I have been the proud

owners of a 1990 blue on white

Carrera 2 cabriolet for twelve years, we

just recently became members of the

club. We have attended two tours

guided by the grand master of touring

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, himself, Ted Glover, and we are anticipating

the next with great excitement.

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

But enough background on us - on to the business of the happy hour.

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

...Maverick Region’s very own mascot ...

Chris & Craig Smith

We have now attended three Maverick Region happy hours,

planned by Dennis Chamberlain. This one, at the Saltgrass Steak

House, had a good turnout, with about thirty-five members and

fifteen Porsches decorating the parking lot. Saltgrass is one of the

many new restaurants you might see while driving to the airport.

The evening began with a surprise door prize presented by Brent

Yager. The prize consisted of two tickets to see Trisha Yearwood the

following night. As luck would have it, I was the first of many to raise

my hand. Thanks, Brent – the show was unbelievable.

But speaking of shows, next came the Maverick Region’s very

own mascot, “Kiwi”. Carol Frank, who was bird-sitting, surprised

everyone by bringing this bright green parrot to the shindig. Colorful

chirps of happiness could be heard throughout the night. The food

and company were great too. Due to the large size of our group, the

service wasn’t particularly fast, which gave the people at my table time

to really get to know one another. That, of course, is the reason

people come in the first place -- to meet interesting people with a

wide range of backgrounds and similar interests.

We’re looking forward to the August 15 Happy Hour, which will

be at the Railhead Smokehouse in the mid cities area.

Hydraulic Clutch Master Cylinder - Part 1: Inspection

By Michael Wingfield

Photo by Michael Wingfield

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Your Hydraulic

Clutch Master Cylinder, But Were Afraid to Ask (Part One)

This three-part article covers the inspection and replacement

of a hydraulic clutch master cylinder in the front-engine,

water-pumping family of Porsche cars. Part One details the

identification and inspection of a hydraulic clutch master cylinder

for the purpose of identifying leaks. Part two of this article covers

the steps to remove the hydraulic clutch master cylinder for replacement

or rebuilding. Finally, Part Three of this article describes the

installation of the hydraulic clutch master cylinder and bleeding the

hydraulic clutch system.

Have you ever spent time looking for fluid leaks in your car?

If you participate any of the PCA driving events, you have seen a

car technical inspection form (tech sheet). One of the items

addressed on the tech sheet focuses on fluid leaks. Specifically, the

Driver’s Education (DE) tech sheet states:

Fluids – NO DRIPPING LEAKS of any fluid of any type;

appropriate levels and proper fluid types

The Autocross (AX) and Time Trial (TT) tech sheet has

similar wording, but implies the fluid be checked in the engine

compartment. I expect most people look inside the engine bay,

under the car, and possibly in the trunk for fluid leaks when

inspecting a car for a PCA driving event, or as part of regular

highway maintenance. But how often have you looked inside the

passenger compartment for fluid leaks?

If your car has a firewall-mounted hydraulic clutch master

cylinder, then you should also inspect the foot-well of your car

for clutch master cylinder leaks. These hydraulic clutch master

cylinders appear on the 924S, 928, 944, 951, and 968 series cars.

Note that the early 924 and 931 series cars had a cable-driven

mechanical clutch, so this article does not apply to those cars. This

article covers the inspection and the replacement of the hydraulic

clutch master cylinder in the above-mentioned series of cars, and

details the steps as performed on my 1986 951.

Figure 1

Inspection

Inspect the clutch master cylinder, the high-pressure line, and

the brake fluid feed line for leaks by looking inside the engine bay.

The clutch master cylinder mounts to the firewall, located on

the driver side and slightly below the brake master cylinder and

brake booster. Depending on the year, model, and specific options

on your car, the clutch master cylinder may be easily visible or

considerably hidden beneath numerous hoses and other devices.

...inside the passenger compartment for

fluid leaks . . .

Perhaps the best method for locating the clutch master

cylinder is to identify and follow the clutch fluid feed hose, colored

light blue if a Porsche part, from the driver side of the brake

fluid reservoir down to the top of the clutch master cylinder. For

example, Figure 1 shows the placement of a very well hidden

clutch master cylinder in my 1986 951. Within Figure 1, label “A”

identifies the brake fluid reservoir, label “B” identifies the brake

booster, and the arrows from label “C” point to the blue gravity

feed hose from the side of the brake fluid reservoir to the top of

the clutch master cylinder. Note that the clutch master cylinder is

not directly visible, but well hidden behind other components.

Check the forward end of the clutch master cylinder for leaks

at the high-pressure line (looks like a steel brake line). Also check

the top of the clutch master cylinder for leaks from the blue hose

supplying fluid. This top hose

connection has a plastic fitting

set in a rubber seal. The rubber

seal works as a stress relief and

vibration damper for the blue

hose connection. Finally look

at the firewall (rear) end of the

clutch master cylinder for any

signs of leakage into the

engine bay.

To inspect the pushrod

end and the bellows of the

clutch master cylinder, look

up inside the foot well of the

interior of the car, between the

clutch pedal and the firewall.

If the clutch master cylinder is

leaking from the piston end of

the cylinder, the bellows will

trap the fluid for a while.

Figure 2

However, actuating the clutch pedal will eventually cause the

fluid to leak onto the sound proofing material on the firewall

immediately below the bellows. Figure 2 illustrates the clutch

master cylinder bellows and pushrod as viewed from inside the

foot well. Within Figure 2, label “A” identifies the bellows on the

push rod that connects the clutch piston to the clutch pedal; label

“B” identifies a stain caused by brake fluid leaking onto the sound

proofing material on the firewall.

12


If you discover fluid in or on the bellows, or a stain on the

sound proofing material (especially a damp stain), then you

should replace the clutch master cylinder. While not a difficult

task, replacing the clutch master cylinder does require many

different but common tools and the ability to contort fingers and

other body parts into abnormal positions. Having a pair of small

hands to assist you will also be of great benefit.

Tools

Before beginning the task of removing and replacing a leaking

clutch master cylinder, it is good practice to take inventory of

your available tools. If you are like me, all too often you start a

job only to find that you are missing a tool necessary to completing

the task. Below, appears a list of the tools needed to replace the

hydraulic clutch master cylinder. As mentioned above, the tools

are common, but you will need many. Along with each tool

appears a brief description of the use for the specific tool:

Miscellaneous tools:

Common screwdrivers – hose clamps

Concours 101

By Gary Coots

About 20 people attended the Maverick Region's first Concours

101 on Saturday, June 15, at the Porsche Store in Plano. Our host

was Quentin Forge (of The Porsche Store Detail Shop), who is a

wealth of information when it comes to detailing cars. His well-organized

crew demonstrated the step-by-step detailing process.

We registered for a drawing first off, to see which lucky recipient

would get a free detail job. Ed Mayo was the winner, and his green

'71 Targa was the car used by the Porsche Store to demonstrate the

detailing process. Here's a crash course on how it's done.

Before you begin, make sure you have two or three fresh, clean

wash mitts. It's a good idea to have two separate buckets: one with two

or three clean wash mitts in a soapy solution, and another bucket with

the dirty mitts.At The Porsche Store, they use cotton terry wash mitts.

Some folks debate whether it's best to use cotton mitts or sponges.

The first step is to wash the wheels and rocker panels thoroughly,

using a soft brush or mitt and mild, spray-on de-greasers. Next, rinse

the wheels and the car body, soap it up from top down, and rinse

again. After the car is scrubbed down and rinsed off, chamois it dry.

Some owners prefer to use cloth diapers or 100 percent cotton

towels to dry the car off. Whichever is used, it must be clean to avoid

scratching the paint. I personally use a water blade to whisk away

excess water before drying with chamois. A tip we learned from the

Porsche Store is the use of compressed air after drying, to blow the

rest of the water out from the cracks and crevices.

A demonstration using the proper brush to clean the wheels.

and clean, and you can also spray it with the lubricant during

kneading. The whole car can be clayed before wiping the lubricant

off, if desired. After the clay bar procedure, examine the surface for

additional imperfections, or for stubborn bird or bug spots. Wash

Solutions recommends Meguiar's Medallion Premium Paint Cleaner,

which worked great during the demonstration.

Now you're ready for waxing. Using a dual-action rotary buffer

to apply the wax, Quentin used a #26 high-tech yellow wax and

applied a very thin layer to avoid a chalky buildup. The newest thing

to wipe off the wax after it dries to a haze is a micro-fiber towel,

available for around $2.00. These towels are about one square foot in

size and will do the whole car without scratching it. They are also

machine washable (no fabric softener) and take up much less room

than large, fluffy bath towels.

...for stubborn bird or bug spots . . .

Tony Mitchell claying Ed Mayo’s winning car.

Next we learned the very important process of cleaning the

paint. Tony Mitchell and Richard Guimond from Wash Solutions

were very helpful in showing how to use products to pull imperfections

from the surface.The first step in paint purification is the proper

use of a clay bar, which lifts contaminants from the paint. The bar

costs about $18, so it's a good idea to work with a piece about the

size of an Oreo cookie. That way, if you drop it, you'll have more;

dropping it on the ground picks up too much dirt to safely use on the

car finish, so you have to throw it away. Work the clay into a pliable

disk shape and NEVER use without a liquid lubricant. The lubricant

used in the demonstration was Meguiar's Final Inspection #34. Work

in a two-foot square area. Spray the Final Inspection on the paint surface

and very lightly rub the clay back and forth across the paint. Do

NOT use a circular motion. The clay should glide smoothly and

effortlessly. If not, you have not applied enough lubricant or are

pressing too hard. Also, knead the clay continually to keep it pliable

The interior is also very important and needs to be thoroughly

cleaned, from the headliner to the carpet, even under the seats.

Cleaning the glass is always the final step. Ed has judged concourses

before, and I asked about commonly overlooked areas. He mentioned

underneath the doors and the tops of sun visors. Also, the wax

buildup around the exterior rubber trim can be cleaned using a

short-bristled detailing brush, which looks sort of like a 2 inch-wide

paint brush that has had it's bristles trimmed to a half-inch long. The

rubber trim around the windows and windshield should be cleaned

and dressed with Q-tips. Lift the edge of the rubber and go around

the windshield with a Q-tip, then apply a dressing such as Armour-All,

Vinylex or Meguiar's Vinyl and Rubber cleaner/conditioner.

A note about Meguiar's products: - they make a consumer line

and a professional line. The consumer line is available from places

such as Target and Wal-Mart, but the professional line is only

available on-line or from a specialty shop such as Wash Solutions.

"Concours 101: The Art of Caring for Your Porsche" was

certainly informative and interesting. I enjoyed seeing Wash

Solutions' unique mobile store and learning tips from Tony and

Richard. Special thanks to MRPCA member Jimmy Carter for

organizing it, and The Porsche Store for being such good hosts.

course The Porsche Store's is www.theporschestore.com.

June 1 Tech Session at Park Place

By Robert Van Buskirk

June’s Tech Session focused on the Porsche 944/968. Alan

Lage was kind enough to offer his car for belt replacements

and other services performed. However, since Alan wasted

his clutch at Texas Motor Speedway a “clutch session” was

added. John Cochran was also kind enough to add his cooked

brakes as a discussion point.

After lunch, with a new clutch installed, they went through

the specifics of timing belts, which was very interesting.

As usual Park Place provided a light breakfast, wonderful

Porsche logo merchandise, and offered special discounts

during the event. They provided pizza for lunch. The work and

great questions continued long after the noon hour.

Look for future Park Place Tech sessions on page 6.

The “clutch session”

This session was very interesting even for the 993 and

Boxster owners because Jimmy Hays and his Tech., Robert

Kennedy provided many physical examples of clutch

components destroyed in many unusual ways. One complete

assembly that they showed us was totally destroyed in less then

100 abusive miles. The lesson here was never loan your Porsche

to anyone. It should be pointed out Alan’s clutch, which gave

him 100,000 miles, was worn appropriately.

. . . totally destroyed in less than 100

abusive miles . . .

My First Autocross

By Casey Todd

Okay so it’s not really my first autocross. I’m an avid

Oklahoma SCCA autocrosser. It was, however, my first

PCA autocross, and boy was it so much fun.

As I was working a corner while the other group was driving, I

saw how Charlie, Cody, James, and others take the turns and

thought, “I can do that, no problem.” Well there was a problem, it

was raining and I’ve never raced at such high speeds. I found that

instructor Cody Sears was great. So, I’m at the starting line and I

do a typical SCCA start. I get off to a great start and turn in an all

right time of 78 seconds. It was fun, but I was a little timid.

I spun twice during my second run and gave Cody a ride for

his life. My third and fourth runs were probably my best of the day,

but both times the timer didn’t work. I was a little disappointed

but, hey, you live with it. My next lap wasn’t that great because I hit

two cones. My fourth lap probably could’ve been my best, but I

ruined it pretty soon by spinning out, so the rest of the run I drove

my heart out and did everything else better than ever. I would like

to thank Cody for being my instructor, and teaching me what to do

in certain situations at that speed.

I would have liked to have stayed for the afternoon session and

driven in the downpour but my dad’s car had a problem with it so

we had to go home. I loved it here though, and am ready to race

again (even though I hate the drive from Oklahoma).

I would also like to thank Charlie, James, Wendy, and others

for helping me get this chance to drive in PCA autocrosses at

sixteen years old. Not long ago they let me write an article about

how PCA should let sixteen-year-olds drive, like SCCA. Without

them I would still be watching everyone from the sidelines wanting

so badly to drive. Thanks very much you guys and ladies.

Copper Canyon Fest

By Charlie Davis

Caveat: No animals, children, or Porsches were injured during the

writing of this article. Some names have been changed to protect the

guilty. Editorial license was stretched to the limit and has currently been

revoked. All opinions are those of the author and do not represent

the attitudes, prejudices, and stereotypes of the Region at large or

management in particular. In other words, it's a figment and the

humor-challenged should read elsewhere.

It's traditional to get together on Father's Day and throw water

balloons until half of us are wet. Never seems to be the half with

swimsuits on. This year, we continued that tradition, but avoided

our long-time, traditional venue, the Casey's homestead, in beautiful,

downtown Copper Canyon (the community). Seems they tore up

their place and could not put it back together in time. So we moved

upstream, to the headwaters of Hickory Creek. The Rueh's live

'round there, near Copper Canyon (the geologic feature in the

ground) and were our gracious hosts.

The only group that was neatly arranged.

Rich's car, named "Ol' Yeller", is a phenomenon. It is wildly

loved by lay people. We of the 914 persuasion (disease?) debate "why"

incessantly, especially those of us with green, blue, and red paint.

Nobody knows! Ol' Yeller is certainly greater than the sum of it's parts.

It's triumph proves that PCA and MR in particular are NOT infected

with the NARP syndrome! If you are confused by the "NARP"

acronym, perhaps thinking it's a federal marijuana sting or rival to

AARP, you need to educate yourself by reading more ads (see P. 28).

Photo by Wendy Shoffit

Conspiracy or not, Emily De Jong and Jasmine Shoffit

were happy to win the water balloon contest!

We traditionally have a picnic...hot dogs and what ever bringins

we liberate from home. We also monitor and occasionally rescue the

kids from the pool. Then, there is the Car Show. Did they call it a

Concours this year? If not, perhaps we should consider a name

change. How about Car Show de Elegance?

All this leads to the facts: we had a record turnout. Wendy

stopped counting at 100! Then there were the 25 cars displayed in a

haphazard arrangement on the grass...like the occupants were in a

hurry to get somewhere else. In spite of the casual appearance, the

wide variety of bright colors was stunning.

Don't take the above as a condemnation of Jimmy Carter, who

orchestrated the Car Show...he did a great job. He was simply overwhelmed

by the number of yellow cars! The alleged speed advantage

of yellow cars resulted in many entrants racing into position. Some

owners of slower colors refuse to admit defeat easily.

Whatever...most of the cars that did swap paint, were the same

boring shade of yellow, so nobody noticed.

The judging by the hungry, wet pod, was predictable...only those

fast, yellow cars were seriously considered. It was a clean sweep for

yellow! Alan Lage won the "Favorite" category in his 2-week-old 996

(yellow) and Rich Johnson won the "Cleanest" category in his

32-year-old 914 (yellow). I just can't understand how a Porsche only

2-weeks off the boat can be dirty? I know that I, for one, voted for

Alan's car as "Cleanest"...

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

...NOT infected with the NARP

syndrome . . .

But the basackward assignment of awards is almost like

Ol' Yeller won BOTH the categories and "management" made an

executive decision to give one of the categories to the runner up . . .

then they got confused and switched the awards...or something. Do

you share my love of conspiracy theories? Niet?

Then how do you explain Jasmine Shoffit and Emily De Jong winning

the Balloon Toss, other than a trick, unbreakable water balloon? I

heard it was a parental conspiracy . . . either that, or Lanean did it?

To stir the pot some more, if we can wash and show cars on

Father's Day, why can't we do something fun on Mother's Day...like

a Hard Parts Swap Meet or Seat-o-the-Pants Autocross or Street

Race? But NO! So much for equality of the sexes...
