My Thoughts by Jan Mayo, Managing Editor Founder’s Day - We celebrate it every year at this time. In November 1962 a small group of people decided they wanted to be a region of the Porsche Club of America so they went through the effort and made it so. And here we are still actively doing the things this small group started over 40 years ago. One of the traditional awards presented at the Founder’s Day banquet is the Richard F. Selcer award. While not a founding member, Dick Selcer was a very early member who displayed the optimum enthusiasm for life, Porsche and the Maverick Region. He was active in all the events and as Treasurer he coined the phrase, “We have money,” while strumming his ukelele during the board meetings. That phrase continues in every board meeting to this day, though the ukele has long since disappeared. One evening, as was typical, he stopped to help a fellow tragic when he was struck by another car and killed. A few years later a plaque honoring Mr. Selcer was created anonymously to be presented by the president to a deserving member. It was given to one who displayed the enthusiasm and committment to Maverick Region as Dick did. The plaque has a line drawing of a 356 engine which was Dick’s car and has a list now of 31 names. award in 1976 and has received it a second time in conjunction with wife, Teri, in 1981. Other still active nota- 1977, Fran & Carl Ussery (still printing Slipstream) 1982, Ed Mayo (PCA Tech Committee) 1989, Joel Nannis (DE Knight (PCA Finance Chair) 1993, Kevin Hardison (still - 2006, Joe McGlohen (DE Safety Chair for the past several years) 2001. Our beloved Lanean Hughes was awarded the honor three times; 1994, 1998 and 2004. The latest recipient was Tracey Gross. Who will be recognized this year? Who has been a constant energetic driving force within our region. Stay Tuned..... 3


Catch My Draft Irealize the Autocross/Time Trial season is over, but we just had a meeting of the AX/ TT Rule Committee and have made some big changes for the upcoming year. I bet there will be an article about it soon enough. I am very excited that it won’t take a spreadsheet and internet access to classify your car! There will be some simple charts and four questions about Tires, Suspension, Weight, and Horsepower that could bump you up in class. The Predicted Performance Factor was so complex I got frustrated when people would ask me what class they are in and I couldn’t tell them without running to a spreadsheet! We are also going to allow more timed AX runs this year than we have the last few years. I personally like to have few- more timed runs, so that is another rule we have changed. Now I have a confession to make.Wendy beat me at the last Autocross of the year, the Charity Autocross at Texas Motor Speedway. This is the 4th time she has bested my best time, and three of those times were at TMS. For some reason I can’t get the hang of that surface. I feel like I am going fast – just not as fast as she goes! I had brand new R compound tires and everything! I had no excuses! So now all you guys snickering to yourselves about getting beaten by my wife, think of it this way. How many times sion. Or make sure the brakes are bled. Or dadgummit, it’s time for some new tires! So I think I have it pretty good, even if my ego suffers from time to time. As Jan mentioned in the last issue, some things are changing, others stay the same. We have new software for Slipstream (partially responsible for some of the delays), we have a new racetrack we will be trying out in November, and we have a new place we are going to have fun at for Founders I welcome, by the way!) it looks like I am going to be Presi- quite get as much done as you wished, and hope for another year to accomplish your goals. And then in the second year, you realize it is impossible and give up. JUST KIDDING. Settle down, people. Sheeesh. As the competitive events are winding down and we only have one Concours and two Drivers Education events the corner! Come on out and join the fun! See you soon! 5

Maverick Minutes by Charlie Davis, Secretary James called the meeting to order at 7:00 PM right after Jan left at 6:52 PM to retrieve purse from her desk at work, as it had the cash gathered at the last DE Charity Laps that needed to go to the Treasurer. nounced that the Sunday drive on October 7 will be to Waco, not Henderson. One of the bridges on the Texas State railway is still washed out. The Sunday drive to Tyler State Park is still scheduled. The next Concours will be on November 4 in Colleyville. Wendy also representing Clint, announced that he wants to be on the calendar committee. Wendy further announced that the newsletter committee has converted to Adobe InDesign starting with this issue. Monda is planning a Happy Hour in Ft. Worth at Daddy Jacks on November 15th. Joel volunteered to send e-mails to new members about our happy hours. Tracey said she had located volunteers to have the Holiday Party in Dallas. It will be at the home of Lee and Linda Wilkins. She made a motion for approval to spend approxi- who would 2nd the motion… Joel won. It passed handily with Wendy made a motion to continue inviting 20-year members to Founder’s Day, but to also invite 40-plus-year members. It passed. Tracey asked us to choose the menu for the Founder’s dize about $15, meaning that the fee will be $40 per person. She said the next New Members Party will be on January 27. Charlie volunteered to contact Dennis Johnson to see if he can get us the clubhouse reserved. Andy said we should encourage members to update their data online. He then described a way to remind people when their membership is about to expire. We have the capability to add a message to Slipstream address areas. We could, for example, remind people in advance that their membership is we could put a message on the back of Slipstream that says, “Only three more months until renewal is due”. This is proactive, instead of reactive (as we currently send notices after their membership has expired). Joel thanked Andy for helping with the membership database updates. Andy further noted that we have been reticent in charging subscribers to Slipstream. We have about 26 people who subscribed to Slipstream, but we have not been charging them, including family members and ex- Maverick Region members who have moved away. Joel volunteered to send these people letters soliciting payment. be on October 14. He again asked for a DE schedule so that he can schedule TimeTrial and Autocross events for 2008. Colin reminded James that he needed TT/AX results in order to pur- 2008 TimeTrial Chair. Lisa said she thinks our higher ad rates are OK. She has received very few comments. 10 of our 27 advertisers have made payments already. Dennis bragged that he had a nice picture of Celeste Genovese! He further reported that one person complained that Uncle Julio’s is too noisy. Lastly he announced that he will be leaving Maverick Region. He will be transferring to Roadrunner Region when his house near Albuquerque is completed. He is retiring and will become a fulltime photographer and part time musician. We wish him well and as soon as we discover his new address in NM, we will let everybody know… Mark said he has already submitted insurance requests for all events in October. He needs the physical address of the Eagle’s Canyon and the name(s) of the owner(s) to complete an insurance request. Colin reported we had 150 entrants at the last DE. The new caterer worked out well. He announced that the October DE would use the 1.7 mile course, since we don’t have enough entrants to afford the full course. At this time he has few registrations for Eagle’s Canyon. in Dallas and noticed a few novel moneymaking ideas. For example, they offered $50 laps of MSR in a race car during lunchtime. We wondered if our insurance carrier would ap- Charlie announced that he had scheduled the Rules Committee meeting just as he ran out of ink. It therefore won’t be reported… Teri had nothing to say, since all Rallies are completed. Jan, with purse and money in hand, needed information about our Happy Hours. She will get that from Monda. Tracey said she would get Mark info about the 2008 New Members Party. Jan reminded the Secretary that he was responsible for James wondered if we need to drop the lunches in Plano, James adjourned the meeting at 8:10 PM. 8


Sunday Drive Photos by Clint Blackman Take your lemons and turn them into Lemonade! Our Maverick Sunday Drivers did just that for the October Sunday Drive. We were all set to “Ride the Rails” of the Texas State Railroad, but “century high” summer rains washed out the big wooden bridge over the Neches River. So Ryan & Stacie Virden of the Hill Country section joined us after our museum tour and off we went to Waco’s Cameron Park. Few people know about this pecan forested, 416 acre of the “Real Lone Ranger.” The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to the oldest state law enforcement agency in the nation. Our group arrived in Waco at about 11am and toured the history and lore of the legendary Texas Rangers. The museum is a vast collection of stories, photographs, uniforms, guns and equipment that depict the history of the Texas Rangers. We saw artifacts showing the hard life of early Texas Rangers who struggled to protect our early settlers to stopped by Texas Rangers. rivers near downtown Waco. The winding park roads were a thrill to drive as we rose over 500 feet to “Lover’s Leap.” ion overlooking the river valley. After lunch, we took off for desert….Dr. Pepper style. Waco is home to the Dr. Pepper brand soft drink. After a short tour of the Dr. Pepper museum, we all settled down with “soda fountain made” Dr. Pepper ice Mavericks had a fun October Sunday Drive. 9

Maverick DE Supports Komen Charity Event by Lori Mauthe Iam an instructor for PCA Maverick Region, and for the second consecutive year, will be walking 60 miles in 3 3-Day. Along with my other 15 team members of ‘Side-by- Side’ we will participate in the journey from Southfork Ranch to SMU Campus, walking an average of 20 miles per day. We will camp out in a sea of pink pup tents somewhere along Campbell road on the east side of the Dallas metroplex. The event is very special to me in many ways. My Mother, Adrienne, survived her breast cancer at age 47, after a mastectomy and 9 months of chemotherapy. Known as Adie to her friends, she was a wonderful woman and a ‘mother’ to many. She survived colon cancer 12 years later as well, but unfortunately we have not yet found a cure for lung cancer. She passed away 5 ½ years ago, and I think about her every day. So, in her honor, my car number is 480 – For Adie. Like many of you, I have family members and friends Early detection and treatments have helped us achieve a 95% cure rate. Still, one in seven women will face a breast cancer diagnosis. Just last year, two sister-in-laws and another friend were diagnosed. We still don’t know the cause or the prevention, but with your generosity, we will have the means to continue the search. At the September Driver Education event at Motorsport Ranch, I asked for contributions to the event with the slogan donated $526.00 to the cause – the Susan G. Komen Founda- promote breast cancer awareness and develop better detection and treatment methods. Each of the over 2,500 participants is required to raise a minimum of $2,200 each. The contribution by the DE will apply toward that minimum for several team members to help them reach their goal and qualify for this incredible journey. event will be in Dallas during the October DE event. For those of you who won’t be at the track, you may see us walking along the city streets and through the parks along Lori with her Boob Saving Boxster our route. There will be two cheering stations along the way for supporters to come out and encourage us. Please give us a honk and a wave! 11 Photo provided by Lori Mauthe


From the Tech Q & A - Early 911 (1965-1973) by Ed Mayo, Early 911 Tech Advisor Question: My car was just put on a Mustang Dyno and only registered 156 hp at the wheels. I was a etc) were to deliver approx 220 to 230 at the crank. I would have expected at least 180+ at the wheels. We didn’t weigh the car but listed it at 2700lbs and used 12hp at 50 mph in the data set up. A thought came up that the MFI pump might be off a tooth as a cam seal was just replaced a while back. The car runs and idles great, very smooth, but feels like it vibrates at high rpm when under hard acceleration, like it is trying too hard. It also leans out over 4000 rpm like the pump is just not delivering the fuel. The mixture is perfect at idle and low rpm. What would be the symptoms of a MFI pump belt off by a tooth one way or another? If not that, what might you suggest I look into. common fault is misadjusted throttle linkage not allowing full throttle. The MFI pump could be incorrectly timed and can easily be checked. Ignition and cam timing should also be checked. The linkage rods for the MFI need to be of a certain length and can cause the mixture to be incorrect. This is also a very common mistake. I can’t tell you exactly what one tooth off would do, but I can tell you that I’ve seen cars come in that were 180 degrees out of time and still ran reasonably well, but you naturally still need the pump timed correctly.

As I have gone through the years, I am sometimes still surprised at the situations where this phrase applies. If you own a Porsche and have never been to a Porsche Club DE then, “you don’t know what you don’t know” and neither did I until at the Motorsport Ranch in September.

I special ordered a car, waited 3 months for production and became a proud Porsche owner on June 1, 2007. I had read about the Porsche Club DE disappointed that the next Maverick DE was not until September. While I waited, I signed up for a couple of other driving schools, learned a lot and met some new friends who talked me into becoming a member of the Motor Sport Ranch. In August I bought 997GT3 parts and a few after market components. Finally, after months of waiting it was time for the Maverick Drivers Education. To be honest, I did not expect a lot. After all, I had been to other driving schools and was Solo each of them. I did not expect a bunch of volunteers to be overly organized or professional. Also, since I have never attended a Porsche Event I Author Glenn learning what he didn’t know. was not sure how a newbie would be treated. First, I was greeted by very friendly folks with donuts and coffee! Then I went to registration check-in and received my driver’s information packet. Next, the driver’s meeting, where the safety rules were explained and so were drivers were pre-organized into groups by experience levels. “Green” students headed to the classroom where the very professional instructor covered more about safety and basic car handling. After class, Green students headed to the “grid” and were greeted by their in-car instructor. At the grid every group is also greeted by the grid master who did a fantastic job keeping everyone informed and ensuring that every driver was A group of “greenies” heading into Little Bend fully ready to go. Then each car was sent to the track in an orderly manner.

angels did a perfect job keeping us informed about track conditions. Later I learned that some of these corner workers have been working at Porsche DE events for more than 20 years. This Maverick Drivers education event was well organized, perfectly run by volunteers that were experienced and totally professional. This event was fun. So many friendly Porsche owners all in one place was quite fun. Talking about Porsches, looking at Porsches, driving on the track with other Porsches. What you may not know about Drivers education….

When Rubber Meets Asphalt by Meagan Moseley The sun had risen early Sunday morning, almost like it was coming to greet me. The parking lot was disserted and the gravel was still loose from the race before. I leaned against the bitter, metal fence and stared out at the vast, open sea of grey. As I breathed in the soft morning air, I quickly imagined myself in a car, speeding across the track in hopes of getting the best time. I could feel adrenaline already pulsing through my veins and my whole body tense with anticipation. I looked from my red Mini Cooper S, to the coned course and back again. As I walked towards my car, I could tell that this run would be one of thrill and intensity. As I opened the silver, smooth handle of my door, the black leather seat, pushed the clutch in, and turned on the car. The engine revved up like it was going to take off at any second. There was so much power in that one noise, that I felt like I was a part of the car. I reached over in the passenger seat for my baby blue helmet and grey gloves. As I slipped on the helmet and gloves, I felt the world before me change and the intensity grow even greater. Leaning back, I gripped the black leather of the steering wheel and drove toward the starting point of a realm of fearlessness and freedom. The car rolled slowly to a stop at the starting line and a man in a jet black jumpsuit told me that it would be a minute before it was my turn. I took that last minute to gaze out onto the hazy grey abyss that I had become a victim of. The man to my left with the extremely comic looking headphones on gave me the go ahead. With that, I let go of my clutch and slammed on the gas. As my RPM immediately jumped to the red effortlessly shifted into second gear while making my could cost me the whole race, I slung around and shot towards the slalom. I came at it on the right side of the cone, tackling each sharp motion twist by twist, just how I had been taught. Right then left, then right again and left while at the same time trying not to lose control and throw the race. My eyes veered up and to the right to see what was coming next. I came out of the slalom and straight into what seemed like a right angle curve. 18 Quickly pressing on the brakes, without losing to much momentum, I directed my car towards the next obstacle. To my surprise, my tires came within inches of the turn in cone without hitting it. Loose gravel slung across the track and my tires screamed at me from the contact with the asphalt. My eyes shifted to my next destination on the course. My car veered towards the gate to the next turn as if it had a mind of its own. I glided in and out of what I have come to call the big “S” with extreme ease and - line. I dug my foot deeper and deeper into the throttle past the line and the race was over. forty-three point two which was by far my fastest time yet. I maneuvered my car into its proper spot back in grid and popped the hood to let the engine cool off before the next run. As I took off my helmet, sweat rolled off of my forehead and down my already steaming face. I looked to my left to watch the next person become intertwined with cones and gravel. Moving almost rhythmically between the cones and the gates, the car seemed to almost know exactly what it was doing. Watching that car I began to see that racing is not just a sport, but it is also an art.

Happy Hour at Uncle Julio’s by Dennis Chamberlain Uncle Julio’s has become a regular spot for us, and while we had one complaint about the noise level, most of the attendees continued to give the place favorable reviews. We had plenty of new members and new faces. One group of four that always lightens up a hap- and Mike and Maria Stafford. These two couples seem to do almost everything together, and I can certainly understand why! New attendees included Todd S, and has been a member since June of 2006, but he was Celeste Genovese attending happy hour. Rumor had it that Todd was there to check up on nied by guest, Celeste Genovese. We’re still not certain about the relationship here – James claimed she was his niece or something like that. Other new members were Donetta and Larry Ramsey Angelika Widmer McQuaid (2006 997S). For our November 15 happy hour, we’re trying a new place in Ft. Worth - Daddy Jack’s Lobster & Chowder, at 353 Throckmorton. Hope to see you there! Donetta Ramsey Todd Hill Larry Ramsey Tom Widmer Dr. Robert Weisberg 24
