Drifting

Mike Brodigan, President

Well another great year of

fun and fellowship with our

Maverick Porsche buddies

is coming to an end. Just think, there

are only two Sunday drives, a DE at

Eagles Canyon Raceway, three more

Porsche Lunches (well, there are four

scheduled, but I think we might blow

off the one on Thanksgiving Day), and two more really

cool Happy Hours, (one in Plano, one in Colleyville).

In addition to all this, we have the Autocross and Time

Trial award celebration at Dave and Busters, and our

annual FOUNDER’S DAY and HOLIDAY

CELEBRATION! What an ending! This Year Founder’s

Day is at the fabulous Gaylord Texan Resort on Lake

Grapevine. This is a can’t miss event. Christy Payne

and her gang have put together an awesome program

that is long on fun, and short on award presentations.

The price is

great, and I will

even buy you a

drink. Check the

web site, or the

ad in this issue

for more details.

While Bryan

Bell was tending

to our Region

(thanks Bryan),

Judy and I

were on a longanticipated

trip

through Scotland

and Ireland. We

sure had a blast. Besides the beautiful scenery, there were

lots and lots of castles, churches, sheep, and pubs. Lots

of pubs. Now you have to understand that on most of our

travels Judy is in charge. She does a great job of seeking out

all the great places to visit and what to see. This trip Mike

took control. We had seven days in Ireland, with most of our

activities pre-planned by our tour group. When we had free

time, I announced that I had set a goal of visiting at least 30

different Irish pubs, and have at least one drink in each one.

Now I know that this was a very lofty objective, but I had

a lot of encouragement from our fellow travelers, and Judy

was a pretty good sport about it. I made number 30 on our

last day at 4:30 pm. Success!

Mav of the Month

This month, Andy Mears is our Mav of the Month. Andy

is in charge of the distribution side of our Slipstream team.

He has had the job for over 10 years. Andy works with the

printers, mail service agency and the Post Office to get our

Magazine out as soon as possible.

For being the Maverick of the Month, The Silver Fox

in Grapevine is giving Andy dinner for two at their award

winning steak house.

Andy, thanks for all you do.

Richard Bradley, Managing Editor

One more month, and we will be

of great people to meet and things to do.

Make the effort and you will be rewarded.

Please send in articles from any club

event you participate in. We all want to know how much

fun you had and what makes you hit your rev limiter! Just

remember I do have a deadline which you are probably

wondering about and where it went. I continue to strive and

get Slipstream out in a timely manner, but there seems to

always be something that delays its delivery, and for that I

apologize.

...BREAKING NEWS...

There will be a Tech Session on Saturday, November 27th

from 9AM - 12 PM at Mullenix Motorsport Engineering,

covering basic battery maintenance and electrical system

Maverick Minutes

Lisa Steele, Secretary

If you thought last month’s minutes

were short and to the point, just keep

reading these minutes…it won’t take

long I promise. You see, our fabulous

President Mike Brodigan, decided to

take on the challenge of running a very

quick but efficient meeting. We began the

meeting promptly at 7:00pm.

Christy Payne started our round the table discussion

with several updates on upcoming Social Events. She

passed around a list of sponsors and other generous people

who have always donated items for our Silent Auction at

Founder’s Day. Many people promised to call and collect

items for the Silent Auction. Christy also announced that

the AX/TT Awards Celebration at Dave and Busters is all

set to go. She also reported that the Club House for the New

Member Party is no longer available on Sundays, therefore

the party will be scheduled for Saturday, Jan.29th.

Robyn Howard speaking for Travis Howard reported that

the Oct. 2-3 Time Trial and Autocross was good but had low

attendance. There were just enough people to run the event

safely. Robyn also announced that there is only 1 Time Trial

and Autocross event remaining for the season.

Robyn reminded the group about the Swap Meet at Zims

on October 9th. 15% discount on parts…what a great deal!

Bryan Bell had nothin’ to say except that he is looking

forward to the Club Race at Hallett on the weekend of

Oct.16th-17th. Good Luck to ALL Maverick Club Racers!!

Jim Falgout was grinning from ear to ear because he was

happy to announce that he completed his first DE and he

only had 3 spins. Jim was also very happy to report, “We

have money!” Speaking of money, there are a few advertisers

who have still not paid so Pat Friend said he would make

a few calls to those advertisers so they won’t get their ad

pulled from Slipstream.

Pat Friend was pleased to announce that we have 3

new advertisers coming on board to Slipstream. Pat also

reported that the orders for badges had not been what he

was expecting. After some discussion, Wendy Shoffit and

Mike Brodigan said they would look at clubregistration.net

for member information. Hopefully, an order can be placed

soon.

Ed Mullenix said that he would try to get a Tech Session

set up for the 27th of November.

Richard Bradley was very excited to announce that

he might have some more help with Slipstream. One of

our members may help take on designing some of the

announcements for our events because she has a graphic

design background. This would really help Christy who

currently designs most if not all of the Event Ads.

Lisa Steele (me) reported that we had a wonderful turn out

for our September DE. We tried a new caterer for this event

and got rave reviews from everyone. We hope to have Del

Norte serving their wonderful cuisine at all of our upcoming

DE’s and all events on the calendar for next year.

Madhu Rao was present to see the true artistry of taking

minutes at our Board Meetings…wink, wink. If you

carefully read last month’s Slipstream, you noticed Mr.

Rao’s name on the Board Officers Ballot for Secretary for

2011.

Wendy Shoffit reported that we collected over $500 during

Charity Laps at the September DE. Thank you very much

to Clint’s Sunday Drivers for coming out and donating so

generously!

Carey and beautiful daughter Geneva Spreen were present

but did not have much to report. Carey is still working on

Rallies for next year.

Fall Season DE Arrives

By Carrie Carrera

Photos by Blair Hartsfield

September 18-19th started the Maverick Region

Driver Education season. So what is wrong with

this picture?

Summer officially ends September 22nd, so that’s

why it was still so blasted hot. Afternoon temperatures

in the mid-90s yet we did have sunshine and a mild

breeze. Not quite Fall.

Then there was registration and OH NO – where was

Joel? Wendy Shoffit was managing registration instead,

and did a fine job getting everyone their stickers, wrist

bands and schedules.

Instructor session started pretty much on time, and on

grid we had - OH NO – where was Jan? Our ‘grid babe’

instead was Travis Howard, who made his debut for

Drivers’ Education events from the Auto-X and Time

Trial events. Parade laps each day over lunch raised

a healthy sum of $500+ cash for our club’s favorite

charity –The Hope Shelter. Okay, he’s not quite as cute

as Jan, however grid ran efficiently and without issues

all weekend. Great job Travis.

Yellow group on Saturday seemed to be plagued with

several cars going off course. The not-so-new mown

hay (those from Indiana will get it) caught fire easily

once 3 feet from the edge of the track. So their first few

sessions were cut short so that the safety crews could

put out the grass fires. And so we had to count on Black

Flag to marshal the cars off track and OH NO where

10


was Joel? James Shoffit, our Zone 5 Rep was handling

black flag this weekend, and at least he wasn’t too busy.

John Hamilton and John Sandusky ran the driver’s

meetings for entrants and instructors respectively. Our

fine hostesses, Andrea Bell and Lisa Steele were making

laps between the paddock and grid restocking water, ice,

a few advanced

promotions – great

job everyone.

So this proves

that even if we are

missing some of our

regulars, the

club has depth

and experience, and can still put on a first class event for

our students and friends. We look forward to seeing you

back again for the October and November Fall DE

events.

snacks and making sure our students were having

fun and getting their cars ready for their run groups.

Okay, GOOD at least that was all normal!! And we

had Sophie the wonder dog at Team 1, although she

spent most of Saturday afternoon not on grid – not

only a good dog, but smart too.

The 3.1 mile course at MotorSport Ranch was

fun and challenging as ever. Several students

advanced from green to blue, blue to blue solo and

to clean out the garage, and

it pays to get up early on

Saturday morning! I did, and I found

some great deals as well as some

sweet donuts and coffee to open my

eyes at our annual Zims Swap Meet.

Al Zim gave 15% off all parts at the

counter, another great bonus! All sizes of parts were to

be found, including entire cars. This year a Concours

Cliff’s Ramblings: Riding The Fine Line In A Porsche Workshop

By Cliff Blackshear

With a Porsche that is in its

warranty period, defining

the line between what is

warrantable and what is not, is an issue

that has become most interesting in the

past decade for me. So many owners

now enjoy DE’s and other pursuits with

their P-Car. I’ve been thinking about

that subject a lot lately as I have slowly realized just how

different things are now.

From a pure technician’s perspective it has been an

interesting role for me. In my environment we want to

represent the owner’s needs to the factory. Porsche adjusts

their perspective only when a workshop can properly show

a failure that should not happen when a vehicle is driven on

limit in totally stock (unmodified) form.

Imagine presenting a warranty issue to the factory from

my side. Flywheel seal leak in a GT3, early clutch failure

in a Cayman S, failed synchro in a 997 Twin gearbox,

or overheated power steering fluid issue in any Porsche

assembled since 1997 (intro of Boxster). I could go back

further in time but I’ll go to Boxster intro year for this. All

of them tracked in stock configuration.

Imagine you are looking at these failures and the car

has GT3 seats, harness bar, 5 point harnesses, etc. etc. I

face that dilemma a lot and I’m the one at our shop that

communicates with the factory on failure issues.

Yet it is not hard to deal with. Porsche does not shut the

door on failures that have nothing to do with the car being

driven on the track or modifications to make the car more

track friendly. I can readily answer, “Yes the car is tracked”

to anyone I deal with at PCNA and that has no bearing on

final warrantable decision. Sometimes I get the feeling that

if the car is tracked, they take the failure personally and do

not want it to happen again. I’m serious here.

Certain areas require much thought and understanding.

Example: Drive any Porsche with stock suspension and tires

at the track and lubrication issues rarely occur. Change the

overall grip level with sticky track tires and or suspension

set up strictly track related (hence higher lateral G’s) and

things are much different. Oiling the engine can become an

issue. In our shop, we have worked hard to educate owners

in this area. If you change the car from street design when it

comes to lateral and longitudinal G’s to a track oriented set

up, these forces have to be dealt with. A different lubrication

dynamic has to be considered. Oil separator needs work,

windage tray in oil pan needs “race style” set up. As far as

the factory is concerned that is what GT3RS and Cup Cars

are designed for.

Going to short throw shifters with stock synchros can also

be a problem. The system works well until an owner is really

running some adrenalin and trying to get better lap times,

even then really good drivers do not wear down synchros.

In the past the cars and the technology available were

pretty primitive. A stock Boxster built today has so much

potential it is amazing. Minor upgrades to suspension or

brakes are easy and results are huge. Work on these cars as

long as I have and come out of a 356 as your starter car and

you would understand.

Anyhow. Here is what I’m getting to. I’ve spent time with

factory people for decades at the repair level. Met engineers

that came out to investigate issues way back (for me, actually

first time was early 1972 911S car, late in the year 1972; I’ll

never forget that one).

They still come out today if I report anything new or

unusual on a new car. It is quite different now. There is a

team of engineers that 20 of us dealers report to monthly. I

am required to get in a minimum of 10 reports a month to

them. High res pics are a must and written documentation

of every step taken to resolve an issue is required. We 20

reporting individuals have a special site we go to, set up

just for “product reporting”. There we log on and send our

information. If a part failed we take pics of bar code on part

so they can view production date, where produced, etc. Plus

our feedback on a failure must include symptoms failure

caused, any consequential failures that result in the vehicle,

and pics of all damage etc.

The engineering team is a group of very passionate

people. I absolutely love conversing and reporting to them.

No failure of anything is considered beneath investigating

for them. Something as simple as a light bulb failure can

produce some interesting results.

The cars now have monitoring software that can show

mechanical over-rev situations. Any idea how many people

accidentally pull second gear when intending fourth gear

and at redline in third gear? We see quite a few yearly... It

happens. It is human to make a mistake. Unfortunately that

is an expensive mistake. We’ve seen GT3’s that recorded

11000 RPM over-revs. Amazingly this usually only results

in things like ring gear on flywheel shifts out of position

and often times the clutch disc explodes into pieces. If

the engine checks ok otherwise as far as leak-down tests

and compression check goes, it still leaves many unknown

possible damage that may rear its ugly head at a later time.

Like stretched rod bolts, minutely bent valves that kissed a

piston, etc. I do not ask the factory for assistance in repairs

like that. That is the owner’s responsibility.

It is a moving target for me when people track their cars

and failures occur. I want honesty on all fronts. Porsche

responds well to honest data. I enjoy every minute of being

in this position. It keeps me interested in so many ways.

Cruising along! Cliff

Member Spotlight: Paige Hamrick

Andrea Bell, Public Relations Chair

This month’s new member

spotlight is on Paige Hamrick.

Paige owns a beautiful red

2009 Cayman S. (She actually shared

with me that the car is named Sexy

Sadie.) Paige has had her car since

this past July. Her first sports car

was a 1986 red Fiero GT. She also

currently owns a 2004 BMW Z4 roadster and just sold

her 2006 Mini Cooper S. (I should have asked her if

the other cars had names as well.)

Paige has one sister in Nashville, TN and a niece and

nephew. Her niece went with Paige on a recent trip

to Italy (her graduation present.) Her nephew has not

graduated yet and has not decided where he wants to

go. She gushed that they both “are beautiful/handsome,

smart, and talented.”

Paige has been in the DFW area

for 30 years. She says she came

here from Florida as quick as

she could! Paige also

enjoys traveling, jewelry making, tracking her cars, and

taking road trips. She hinted that she might participate

in an upcoming Sunday drive. Based on what she

shared, it sounds like she’ll have a great time.

Look for Paige and Sexy Sadie at the next PCA event

Happy Hour at BJ’s Restaurant

Chris Christensen, Happy Hour Chair

We had over 30 Mavericks join us

at the September Happy Hour.

This was our first Happy Hour

at BJ’s; it seemed that

most everyone was

enjoying some pretty

good looking pizzas

or salads. No food

complaints were apparent. However,

we will need to generate a vote of

confidence before we return…was it

thumbs up or thumbs down? Send us

an email so we will know for the future,

your vote counts!

By the time this article hits the press,

we will have had our first speaker at a

Happy Hour. Perhaps this was done

in the past, and if so we are not the

first. From time to time and certainly

not every Happy Hour we thought it

interesting to invite someone from the

club or maybe outside the club if he or she has the right

stuff, to speak for a short while towards the end of dinner.

Anyway, maybe another vote is in order as to whether this

is good addition to our venue or not.

Certainly, Jack Griffin who was our speaker at October’s

Happy Hour has the credentials. He also still owns his first

two Porsches that are now over thirty years old…and we

has met that has driven in major races such as the 24 hour of

Le Mans. That is pretty impressive by all accounts regardless

of the finish. The race has had an interesting history, and

not always the most

pleasant, but certainly

always exciting.

If anyone would like

to talk about racing or

Porsches in any way

that would keep our

Happy Hour audience

nearly spellbound, do

not hesitate and step

right up. There is no

money involved but

the bragging rights

are endless.

By the way, we

forgot to mention that

the parking was pretty

decent at BJ’s. Most everyone parked in an open area with

Porsches on both sides. And we noticed a new black 911

thought we were collectors of stuff. (Just sold a Boxster after

10 years never thought we would own a car that long!) So,

as we write this we might ask Jack for a tour of his garage, or

should we say museum? Jack is the first person this writer

My First Porsche ... Club

By Mark Wilkinson

I

was invited to join my brother, James,

at a Time Trial event in Mineral Wells.

He offered to let me drive his car at the

event. This would be my first Time Trial,

and I didn’t really know what that meant. I

knew I would be driving fast around a lot

of cones. I was also told it was similar to

an Autocross, but with higher speeds and

less turns. Well this was going to be fun! I love to drive fast,

and thanks to my brother, I just had to show up.

I found out this event was organized by a Porsche Club

(PCA Maverick Region). The odd part is, I wouldn’t be

driving a Porsche. You see, this Porsche Club welcomes

people to their event. More people ease the burden of

working the course, and make it a safer driving environment.

Although I wouldn’t be directly competing in the official

Porsche Club member times, I can compare my lap times to

theirs, and see how I stack up in my brother’s Ford Mustang.

This was my first experience with a Porsche Club, and I

wasn’t sure if I would end up sucking exhaust smoke at the

end of the day, but I was willing to find out!

The course I would be driving isn’t a strip of asphalt

where the driver just keeps the car off the grass. This is a

wide open 60+ acre asphalt lot with cones spread out to

mark the track at key locations. It’s not thousands of cones,

and the cone spacing makes it difficult to see the course at

first, but once I put a few laps on the tires, the track came

into focus and became second nature to follow.

Since it was my first time at the Time Trial, I was assigned

an instructor/coach to help me visualize the course. The

stars aligned for me that day because I was assigned Bob

Kuykendall. Bob was the top driver of last year’s events,

and was a tremendous help. After a short wait in the grid,

we hit the course for my first warm up lap. Bob was quick to

point out the correct line. He kept his hand in my peripheral

view, constantly pointing to the correct line. Verbally, he

would keep me

informed of

what was coming

up next. “Left

turn. Increasing

radius.” “Right

turn. Decreasing

radius.” After the

corner he would

give me words of

encouragement.

“Not bad. Enter

a little tighter

next time.”

Mark Wilkinson running solo after successful

mentoring from Bob Kuykendall.

Photos by Charlie Davis

We quickly came up to my first hot lap. Bob let me know

it was time to go as fast as I could drive. I didn’t want to

disappoint, so I gathered all my courage and stepped on

the gas. I could hear the excitement in Bob’s voice as we

approached each corner. He told me when to brake, pointed

me to the apex, and told me when to hit the accelerator.

Coming out of the corner, I can still hear his encouragement,

“Step on the gas. Go!

Go! Go!” All I had to do

was have the courage to

follow his instructions.

The box exit was problematic for

several drivers, including

Travis Howard.

I was flying around

the course! My heart

was beating fast in my

chest, I just knew I was

squeezing every ounce

of power out of the car.

Bob was correcting my

mistakes, but after the

first couple of laps, he

wasn’t making major corrections anymore. I was picking

my lines, choosing when to brake or accelerate, and Bob

encouraged me the entire time! It was definitely the fastest

I could push the car around the corners, and I was sure it

couldn’t take any more.

Then on the third hot lap, Bob said something that

surprised me. “You’re doing great. Now, you just need to

go fast.” WHAT! Was Bob not watching the same brilliant

driving of my warm up lap, and my amazingly hot laps? I

wasn’t sure my heart could

take any more adrenaline.

He didn’t say go faster,

or speed it up. He said go

fast. That meant I must

have been going slow.

How could I go any faster

without killing myself and

the top driver from last

year? I was already at the

limit, or so I thought.

I’ve been with Bob for

less than 5 minutes on

...and Carey Spreen.

the course. I already trusted him to keep me from killing

everyone, so it was time to put up or shut up. If Bob trusts his

life with a guy he’s known for less than 5 driving minutes,

then I was going to have to trust him as I pushed the car

beyond where I thought the limits were.

I pushed my heart as far down from my throat as possible,

and kept my foot on the accelerator. As we approached the

26


My First Porsche ... Club (continued)

corner, Bob would motion with his hand to brake, but I knew

the brakes were strong, so I waited until the inevitable crash

moment. To me, this is the moment when you take action to

avoid a crash, and if your brakes don’t work, there isn’t time

to do anything else. It’s all or nothing! I think this point was

a little further than Bob wanted because after a few corners,

he was pumping his

hand to let me know it

was time to brake, but

I held it just a little

longer. The car slowed

hard to the corner.

Bob’s excitement

and encouragement

picked up. “That’s

it! Keep your speed.

Brian Petri wobbles it on his way by. Now, Go! Go! Go!”

If I wasn’t on the

brakes, I was back on the accelerator. Bob was right! The

car held the line at a much higher speed. I could feel the

rear tires slipping out on me, but they kept holding just long

enough to get me through the corner. I knew I was going

faster, but I wouldn’t know how much faster until my laps

were complete.

After 6 hot laps, I finally got to check my times. The

difference was amazing! When I thought I was giving it

all it had, I was running 85 to 86 second laps. After Bob

provided the phrase that will haunt me forever, “Now just

go fast,” my lap times were down to 71 and 72 seconds.

A 13 second difference from one set of laps to the next! I

really was driving slow, and for the record, a Porsche driver

pointed it out to me.

Not bad for my first experience with a Porsche Club.

Everyone shared information on how to set up for the

corners, encouragement of smoother motions, and the extra

special yell when I spun the

car in the corners. There are

many more stories I share

with friends as I regale my

adventure at the event. 90

degree sweeping corners at

speeds over 100 mph, lift

off over steer at 70mph in

an increasing radius turn,

applying power instead of

brakes to keep the back of

the car from sliding out

from under me when I push

the corner too hard, and

many more.

Jeff Herrmann, while instructing,

shows his student Chris

Harsdorff exactly how it should

be done.

For me, the main story that stands out in my experience

with my first Porsche club is the encouragement,

improvement, excitement, and camaraderie I felt as I spent

my weekend with a group

of people who, despite not

knowing me, wanted to

help me achieve everything

I could on the course I

wasn’t a member of their

club. I didn’t own a

Porsche, and I wasn’t a

good driver, but that’s

changing since I’ve

experienced the PCA

Tech Corner

Ed Mullenix, Tech Chair

have all the electrons

gone” is not a song by

“Where

Peter, Paul, and Mary. It

is a question pondered by us when we turn

the ignition key of our beloved Porsche and

nothing happens. The electrical system

of any Porsche made after 1965 is very

robust. We generally do not experience

the wiring and component issues that other marques do.

And no, your Porsche will not catch dreaded Lucas disease

if you park it next to a Jag.

The weak link in our

electrical system is the

usually the battery. Modern

automotive storage batteries

are very reliable. They require

no maintenance and sit in their

mounting doing their thing

until one day, they decide to

quit. A battery is a service

item just like brake pads and

oil filters. We know when

we need to change the oil or

change our brakes, but a battery

does not have a recommended

replacement interval and there

is not a light on the instrument

panel telling you your battery

is about to die!

Sometimes you get a hint that

things are not well electrically.

If the engine cranks slowly

and the battery is more than

three years old, one would be

advised to have the electrical

system checked. I stated

“electrical system” and not

just battery. The humongous batteries that are fitted to a

Porsche are usually 100 amp-hour batteries.

Theoretically, one could place a one amp draw on the

battery for 100 hours. In practice, if you leave the trunk

open for more than a day, the trunk light will discharge

the battery to the point that it will not start the car. Often

overlooked when we experience battery problems is what is

called “static draw”. It is how much current is flowing out

of the battery to run the clock and computer memories when

everything else is turned off. The 996’s and 997’s have all

sorts of whistles and bells that are computer controlled. The

normal static draw on a 997 can be as much as 70 milliamps.

An older 911 will have a static draw around 10-25

Photos by Ed Mullenix,

milli-amps.

A quick way to determine if you have something left on

or drawing more than the normal current is to place a test

light in series with the negative battery cable and the battery

post (see accompanying photo). An automotive test light

resembles an ice pick with a wire attached to the handle. It

has a small bulb in the handle that glows when current is

run through it. They are inexpensive (usually around four

bucks) and available at any auto parts store or even Wally

World in the auto section.

To perform the test, make

sure everything is turned off.

Open the trunk and either

disconnect the trunk light or

remove the bulb. Also, if

you have a car fitted with an

alarm, you need to disconnect

the switch connected to the

trunk latch (the alarm system

will draw 240 milliamps if it

detects an open door or trunk).

Disconnect the negative battery

cable from the battery (some

twisting of the cable connector

might be required to free it.)

Connect the alligator clip on

the end of the test light wire to

the negative cable. Place the

metal tip of the test light (the

ice-pick looking end) on top of

the battery post. The test light

will usually be brightly lit at

this point because you have

not reset the alarm or computer

memories. With the light still

connected, touch the side of

the battery cable connector to

the battery for a couple of seconds then move it away. If no

unusual draw exists, the light will glow very dimly with a

slight pulsing caused by the quartz clock. If the light is still

brightly lit, something is still on and needs to be addressed

or the battery will continue to be discharged.

Basic electrical troubleshooting and battery servicing

will be one of the topics presented at the next Tech Session

at Motorsport Engineering in Richardson on Saturday,

November 27th from 9:00 until 12:00. We will have the

usual donuts and coffee and an excuse not to go to the

shopping mall with our significant others. RSVP to

techcorner@mavpca.
