Mike Brodigan, President
Ok, the changes in my life over the
next several months are going to
take a bit of getting used to. I am
really going to miss hearing “Hail to the
Chief ” whenever I walk into a room. I
have grown quite fond of some of my
secret service agents (especially the one
with the long hair and Bambi eyelashes
[just kidding, Judy]). The political junkets were fun too,
and the pay was quite generous. I do think Judy is getting
kind of sick of referring to me as “Mr. President.” Lately
she has been adding some pretty disturbing adjectives. After
December, I will become just another John Q. Maverick.
All good things must come to an end.
I consider it a privilege to have served as the Region’s
President for the last two years. The Region just keeps
getting stronger and stronger because of the awesome
people who put their time and effort into making this a
fun organization. Another exciting thing about this club is
the number of new faces we are seeing. Almost all of our
leadership positions have changed in the last 2 years. New
people spark new ideas.
Slipstream, under Richard Bradley’s guidance continues
to get better and better. Take a look at a 2008 issue, and
compare it to today. Wow! Bigger, new features,
great event ads, and COLOR! It takes a whole
team of volunteers to keep this award winning
newsletter going. We did some marvelous things
with the Hope House, our Social Events, Sunday
Drives and Happy Hours as well. Our driving
events remain “second to none!”
I want to thank everyone who made this an easy
job for me. There are so many who have done so
much in all our activities. With the new slate of
officers I believe we will keep getting even better.
Hey everyone, thanks for all you do, and I will
see ya’ll next year.
For being the Maverick of the Month, The Silver Fox in
Grapevine is giving James dinner for two at their award
winning steak house.
James, thanks for all you do.
Mav of the Month
Please congratulate James Shoffit. Our latest
Mav of the Month. James is everywhere. Driving
events, lunches, socials, and at many of our board
meetings. James also is a tremendous help to us
in his role as Zone 5 Representative.
Mike enjoys the Maverick social events,
is a Drivers Education instructor and
does a little Club Racing as well. His first
Porsche is a 1999 Boxster that he intends
to own forever. He also has a track
prepared 1989 944 Turbo S (Chouncey).

Jan passed the baton to me as I thought to myself, “I don’t
know what to do!” Now Jan’s in Colorado bracing for a cold

people that will become wonderful friends if you plug in.
So I encourage every one of you to take a step of faith

Lisa Steele, Secretary
As the Thanksgiving Holiday
approaches, this Secretary is very
thankful that our Board Meetings
are starting and finishing in such a timely
manner. We began the November meeting
promptly at 7:00 PM. Bryan Bell was
running this meeting and he was eager to
“get it started.” Bryan assured the group
that all insurance is covered. He also had information from
Andy Mears about Slipstream. Apparently, the mail service
agency has raised their prices from our current price of
$150/month to $500/month. Andy did some research and
found another company that will do the job for $280/month.
Jim Falgout reports with a smile on his face that “we have
money.” Well…until that hospitality chick buys the pizza
and beer for the next DE.
Pat Friend introduced his friend, Paul Jason, to the group.
Paul was just sitting in on this meeting, but it won’t be
long until we convince him that he needs to volunteer for
something. Pat was also happy to announce that he delivered
his first order of 30 name tags to Chris Christensen for his
Happy Hour folks. Can I hear a Woot Woot? Keep those
orders coming in! Pat reported that as of November 15th the
on-line Goodie Store may have a slightly different look to
it the next time you go on there to order something because
there has been a change in management. It should still offer
everything Porsche that your heart desires.
Richard Bradley introduced his friends, Larry and Donnetta
Ramsey. Donnetta has agreed to help with Slipstream Ads
so Richard and Christy Payne (who currently does all of the
ads) can have a little relief. Both Richard and Christy are
doing the Happy Dance! Can’t wait to see your awesome
Michael Pelletier would like for Donnetta to make a special
ad for him that says “WANTED: Registrar for AX/TT.” If
anyone is interested in this job, please contact Michael.
Christy Payne reminded the group to sign up for the AX/
TT End of Season Celebration and Awards Dinner. She also
announced that registration for Founder’s Day will be up on
the website soon. Did we mention that it is at the Gaylord
Texan?!! Anyone who is anyone, will be there so sign up
early!! I have it from an inside source that the dress code is
a nice dress shirt and jeans for the gentlemen and a beautiful
blouse or your best Christmas sweater with a pair of jeans
for the ladies. I already have my outfit picked out…do you?
Robyn Howard was present, but had nothing to report.
Travis Howard had a tear or two running down his face
as he announced that the AX/TT season is over. Travis was
excited to report that he tried a new TT course at the last
event and there were mixed reviews…keep those new ideas
coming! He also announced that the Mineral Wells dates
for next year are all set. Tannia Dobbins is working on the
Wendy Shoffit was present, but had nothing to report.
Carey Spreen attended several SCCA Rallies this year
and he made the comment that “they make you stop and
think too much.”
Madhu Rao was present, but had nothing to report but he is
anxiously awaiting the January Board Meeting when he gets
to put his awesome secretarial skills to work. I personally
cannot wait to read your Maverick Minutes, Madhu!
Clint Blackman announced that the next Sunday Drive is
a Turkey Chase in East Texas. Clint also announced that he
will be stepping down as the Sunday Drive Chair. It will
be hard to fill your shoes Clint…Thank you for all that you
have brought to the ever growing Sunday Drive Group!
Clint introduced John Harvey as the new Sunday Drive
Chairman. Welcome, John!!
Ed Mullenix announced that there will be a Tech Session
at Autobahn on January 15th.
Jack Griffin is planning a Concours/Prep for the near
future…stay tuned for specific dates!
John Hamilton reported that the October DE sold out!
Can I get another Woot Woot? He also announced that the
November DE is looking good. Of course it is John because
we have absolutely the BEST Instructors, Corner Workers,
and Staff at our DE’s. Come join our FUN!!
Meeting adjourned at 7:23pm…yes, you heard me right..
the meeting lasted a total of 23 minutes! Now that calls for
a triple Woot Woot!!!
Save the flash!
Owning a Porsche is
a unique experience.
Do your part to preserve
keep the flash alive!
The Foundation of HOPE
By Linda Bambina
They say a picture is worth a thousand words; this time
it also speaks of at least a thousand hours. Maverick
Region began a
massive project for their
beloved charity, The Huffaker-
Hughes Hope House. The
basic idea was to turn a small,
drainage challenged backyard
into a beautiful, playgroundsafe
place for children to
have fun, and a place where
their mothers can be at ease
and take care of healing
themselves while building a
new life free from domestic
violence. Making that happen
took a little over seven months
with both volunteer and
professional service. At a
celebration party in June, coleaders
Linda Bambina and
Clara Lewis were surprised
with an engraved boulder that
said it all: “The foundation for HOPE is built one rock at a
time.” Of course, getting that 350 lb. baby out to the newly
took another four
months to complete!
COMPLETE it is!
PCA Palooza 2010
By Chris Christensen
This was the sixth year for PCA
Palooza. It is a gathering of Porsche
enthusiasts sponsored by PCA that
includes: an arrival mixer, spirited and
scenic drives, a Concours, a Saturday night
dinner, and an Autocross on Sunday. It is
over a weekend that gives those that work
a chance to partake in the activities and the
splendor of Eureka Springs. It is truly a beautiful area of the
country, the fall colors were waning but enough left to even
surprise a New Englander.
We left at 8:00 AM sharp on Friday morning
from the Sanger area where we met three other
cars to join in a Caravan. The drive was a bit
wet along I-40 as we hit numerous rain showers
along the way. But as we got closer to Eureka
Springs the weather started to clear a bit. The
drive was very scenic if not spectacular in
spots…passing through the Boston Mountains
was a highlight. Beautiful countryside and
autumn colors in the trees made the drive very
worthwhile. We logged over 400 miles from
Southlake to Sanger and on to Eureka Springs.
Checking in to the hotel and then into the PCA Palooza event
was painless. The folks running Palooza have it figured out…
we felt very welcome. Everyone was smiling…guess it had
to do with the fact in part that they had just gotten out of their
Porsches. I am learning that driving Porsches or just looking at
them can make everyone really happy.
We counted about 13 Mavericks in attendance. Not a bad
crowd considering the distance to get there. There were probably
about 200 Porsches in attendance. I might add that there were
some spectacular cars that
made the trip –including a
handful of beautiful 356’s
and one bright yellow
Carrera GT and everything
Friday evening we were
treated to a buffet mixer
hosted by the Palooza folks.
The food was plentiful with
more than enough to feed a small army. There were a few
purchases that could be made, such as tee shirts, golf shirts, and
other Porsche accessories. We did make a small purchase and
then restrained ourselves.
After a good night’s rest, we had breakfast in town at a very
quaint restaurant. For those of you who have never been to
Photos by Chris Christensen
Eureka Springs it is a very scenic town and of course a bit
touristy. The streets are very narrow and in spots quite hilly. It
makes for some interesting driving, especially when meeting an
oversize vehicle head-on.
Our group had signed up for the scenic tour on Saturday
morning. It was not a long tour but again very scenic and
interesting. From a one-way wood
covered bridge to an almost all glass nondenominational
church located in a very
remote section – in a heavily wooded
area. You can see from the photograph,
it really was a beautiful location and the
church was very cleverly constructed.
We heard the folks that took the spirited
tour really enjoyed themselves, if you
know what we mean.
Late morning we went on our own little tour of
the town. Visiting some old hotels and the like,
returning to wash the grime off of our cars for
the Public Choice Concours. Hot water in an ice
bucket and a towel…works wonders but not quite
the best. It was a bit chilly – in the high 30’s in
the morning. We lined our cars up in the People’s
Choice Concours. So after about three hours the Concours was
complete – with hopes of winning at least something.
We retired to our rooms to get ready for dinner and the
Concours awards…we didn’t win. Matter of fact no Maverick
won. Jack Griffin had a spectacular ’85 Carrera in the show
along with Frank Briggs and Doug Koeppen with their 993’s
and Mike with his very nice and clean 928. We were all a little
disappointed but not shocked. In addition this writer discovered
that even a 2010 C2 Cab is not good enough to bring home the
bacon. Such is the life in a Concours…there were great cars to
compete against, so we shouldn’t grumble too much and just
be happy we were there to enjoy it all. Dinner and drinks and a
keynote presentation from Vic Elford – Born in London, Elford
was one of the fastest drivers in the sixties and seventies….he
was well known in the Porsche circuits at the time and known
as quick Vic. His stories were entertaining and informative.
Sunday brought out the Autocross…with James and Wendy
Shofit assisting. It was a relatively short course, cars had
difficulty reducing speed…probably 20 mph could be reached at
maximum. We watched for a while but had plans to return home
through Hot Springs, so we did not stay for the conclusion…
All in all it was a fun trip with good friends and a beautiful
setting. We are looking forward to next year and highly
recommend a trip through the Ozark twisty roads to Eureka
Springs…your Porsche will love it.

Greetings fellow Maverick Region members.
The 2010 Maverick Region track season has
concluded with six high performance Driver
Education events and a thrilling Club Race.
Not that long ago in North Texas, if you wanted to
track your car it meant a trip to College Station or the
Tulsa area of Oklahoma.
Fortunately, a few people with parcels of land and a
vision have grown the ribbons of asphalt in our area,
from one point seven miles of track surface to over seven
miles at the three nearby venues.
What has not grown significantly are the numbers of
workers needed to perform the duties required at each of
the corner stations. More specifically, there has not been
an increase of younger people (18 to 25 year olds) to the
ranks of the sport.

Fall Season DE Complete
By Carrie Carrera
There were two remaining fall Driver Education
events for 2010. What? You didn’t hear about the
one in October? Well, that is because all of the
fast loud guys were up at the Club Race in Hallett. So we
didn’t have quite the roar of horsepower that is typical at
one of our events. Nonetheless, there was an abundance of
horsepower with several GT3s, GT2s, Carreras and a flock
of Caymans and Boxsters. We ran the Motorsport Ranch 1.7
configuration going clockwise, for a change of pace. With
a balance of cars in each group we had a fun full event.
Our remaining instructor team was joined by several of our
reserves and guests from other clubs so that we were able
to provide instruction to all. Parade laps at lunch was very
well attended, with donations going to the Komen Race for a
Cure, in support of instructor Lori Mauthe’s Team Walking
On, which is participating in the 3-Day 60 mile walk in San
Diego in November.
Our season finale was at Eagles Canyon Raceway in mid-
November. With a full team of instructors, including the
loud guys, we finished our year with another great event.
The “regulars” were back – Joel Nannis at Black Flag,
John Sandusky as chief driving instructor, Team Leads
and Advanced Instructors with their Club Racing Porsches,
and our new regular Travis as our Grid Marshall. Travis got
his exercise running up and down the grid, around the new
tech building, to manage the exit onto the track for each run
group and did a fine masterful job in his 2nd event with us.
We sure hope he is back next year.
Lisa Steele and Andrea Bell discovered a new caterer from
Cresson who provided our lunches at MSR, and the food
was so wonderful, that they invited them back to ECR. They
bring a whole new meaning to the concept of “track food” –
wow was it tasty and enjoyed by all. Lisa and Andrea worked
all weekend to keep of us well hydrated and fed with coffee
and treats in the morning, cold drinks all day, and of course
the fine lunch and pizza for dinner Saturday. The instructors
GREATLY APPRECIATE their blue buckets of snacks at
the grid stations.
Due to the fine work of our instructors and excellent
students, there were many promotions and solo stickers
presented. We were a bit chilly in the wind, yet thankful
that there wasn’t any rain all weekend. A special shout out
to Bob Benson and his team of corner workers that kept us
running smooth and safe all day. Without them we couldn’t
begin to have this much fun.
The spring schedule is published for 2011 starting in
March at Eagles Canyon, and April at MSR, and then back
at Eagles Canyon for Memorial Day. Watch for email alerts
and check out Slipstream and the website for more details.
Happy Holidays to all and big thank you for all who
participated in the 2010 Driver Education Season.
PArk PLAce PorSche
I’ve been buying cars from Park Place Porsche for seven years, and have probably purchased
eight cars from them. I have my baby now – a 2001 Turbo with custom wheels.
When I purchase from Park Place, it’s always free of complications. If I’m looking for something
specific, they’ll find it and take care of it for me. Because I’ve worked with them so many
times, there’s a level of trust. I don’t worry about it. When you get treated that way, you keep
Whenever I’ve brought my cars in for service, it’s always been a wonderful experience. The car
is always ready before I’ve even thought about it, and it’s beautifully clean when it comes back.
There’s just a level of perfection at Park Place that you won’t find elsewhere.
I recently joined the Porsche Club of America, and what got me interested was a Park Place
Porsche drive event. They’d been encouraging me to try it for years, and I finally made the time
to do the caravan. It was a blast. They push the cars pretty quick and follow it with a steak
dinner; it was first class. The PCA does cool weekend runs, so I plan to do more of that.
I love this dealership – they’re friendly and personable, provide good service; no problems, just
great cars. I recommend Park Place Porsche to anyone interested, and I’ll keep coming back.

Cliff’s Ramblings: Hallett Club Race
By Cliff Blackshear
love the Hallett track. It is a driver’s
track. I have not met a driver/racer that
does not like this road course. Plus the
atmosphere is awesome. Beautiful setting
with rolling hills, wooded surroundings,
and a wonderful family that built and
runs it to this day. Food at the Finish Line
Café is not bad at all, especially breakfast.
I’ve been to that track many, many times. Started out going
there to support a friend racing in the Hallett “COMMA”,
(Competition Motorsport Association) series. He was
racing an Alfa in the GT3 class in the 90’s. Took the GT3
championship in 1998. My friend gave me the plaque after
it was presented to him that year. I have it on the wall in
my room to this day. It was a special time for us. We grew
up together and remain tight even today... He is responsible
for my being a Porsche technician. His dad bought a 1957
356 new back in the day. Turned it over to his son when he
was old enough to drive and grilled him with proper driving
techniques. I was right there and drove that 356 many times,
full on, tail hanging out steering crossed up, throttle pinned
to the floor.
So in the middle of October, I was off to Hallett, once
again this time to witness a PCA club race, with the goal
of helping anyone I could to overcome any difficulties with
their machines. Gladwill went and paddocked up with six
other competitors. They rented three nice rigs to stay in
for the weekend in the paddock and had them set up as a
compound and parked their cars right there. Nice set up for
the drivers. Get some sleep, wake up, have some food and
a little coffee (motion lotion I call it), step out the door and
there is the race car.
I stayed off track nearby and came in each day in stealth
mode. Wanted to look in from the outside and observe. Then
help when I could when
in need. Sent
out an email
folks know I
would be there
and help in any
way I could
if they had a
problem that wa s
inside my realm of knowledge. My expertise is really road
going Porsches, so my ability to help is limited to mechanical
issues. Track settings, handling problems, etc. are not things
I have a lot of experience with. Come to me and tell me
the car feels loose and I’m lost. So many variables. Tires
Photos by Cliff Blackshear
(condition, heat cycles, pressures), sway bar settings, spring
rates, shock settings, alignment, etc. all vary from track to
Friday one of the guys
in the compound, Mike
Redenbaugh, had an off
exiting turn 10 on an
early lap. Slicks were
still a little cold when
he got on throttle at exit
and the car came around.
He ended up hitting the
tire wall with
both front and
rear of car. His
GT4R 993 was
not happy with
Taking a well deserved nap! damage. I
looked it over
from the bottom and tried to push the body parts back
out to make it drivable. Was not totally successful in my
efforts. Fortunately Steve Watkins was there. His body shop
expertise really paid off. He made the car right. The rest of
Mike’s weekend went well.
Saturday I got up and was kinda lazy. Hit the track a
little after 8:30. Went to “Finish Line Café” and had some
pancakes, bacon, milk and coffee. Felt
good; morning air was crisp and cool,
sky clear, good day I’m thinking.
Drive over to compound, barely out
of car and Gladwill says “Can you
help Edwin? He had an off that
resulted in some front damage to his
car this morning and his Sp Box has
a broken radiator!” Absolutely, I’m
thinking and reply. So off I go up the
hill to check it out. Brian Amond
comes along and I see that he is
most concerned for Edwin’s situation.
Turns out Edwin had what started out with a simple
off, then he encountered a small ditch that sent his car
somewhere near 4 feet in the air. Nose comes down first
and front of car is not pretty. Oh my! Most air management
components under front of car are either destroyed or
completely missing. Right radiator is broken and mountings
are bent. So, while I am pulling off entire front nose and
assessing damage, Brian takes some time to just look at the
car from every angle. He comes up with many observations
that were most helpful. Ultimately we got Edwin back out
there. He missed qualifying and had to start from the back
of the field. In sprint race three on Sunday he finished 8th in
SPBOX class. Nice… That felt good…
Some great racing went on that weekend. Spec Boxster
class was amazing. John Gladwill and Steve Watkins
dueled for 1st and 2nd all weekend. Michael Hsu and Bryan
Henderson went after one another in the same class and
some great driving was witnessed. Thomas Jones came into
his own and showed some amazing skills. Billy Stevens
wanted to get past Glen Gatlin all weekend, but Glen was
having none of it. The HP of a GTA2 was just too much for
a GTC4 car. Billy really drove well. Cup cars are awesome
If you have not been to Hallett it is a wonderful venue.
The turn out this year was huge. 90 plus cars and perfect
The SP Box class shows (and I have a time sheet in front
of me for Sprint Race 1) 20 cars in the first sprint race. My
understanding is that 22 cars signed up. That was the best
class for my money. Great racing all up and down the pack.
Also very clean racing in a class where the cars are so equal
in so many ways. That is a driver’s venue for sure... Wow!

We had a very good turnout at
this month’s Happy Hour with
over thirty-five enthusiastic

three long tables that normally
seat about 15 or so at a table….
a good crowd and it seemed
everyone enjoyed the food and
camaraderie. We even had a
couple drop in who now live
in Germany, Alan and Verena
About a month or so ago I
spoke with Jack Griffin asking
him if he would be interested
in speaking at an upcoming
Happy Hour about his racing
history. Jack agreed, being the
great guy that he is.
Many of the Mavericks came to hear Jack talk about his
experiences at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Some of us knew
Jack had driven in this race, not once, but twice with a third
attempt that was foreshortened. Jack had also driven in the
12 Hours of Sebring, as well as others. This writer has always
thought the Le Mans race is “une course extraordinaire.”

Racing with PCA at Mineral Wells
By Garrett Dexter
Garrett Dexter contemplates the
Since my brother Josh
started racing with the
Porsche Club back in
March of 2010, he expressed
to me that I needed to come out
and race because, in his words,
“that’s the most fun I’ve had in a
car with my pants on.” So once
he told me that after his first
time out, I knew I needed to
make it out for a race weekend.
We planned a short trip for the
weekend of October 2nd and
3rd; I had no clue what I was getting myself into.
We made it out to Mineral Wells airport early Saturday
morning and all I saw was a large patch of asphalt, cones
and race ready cars. I’ve got to admit I was really nervous
when we pulled up and walked around, but the butterflies
soon settled with the generous greetings from all the other
participants and instructors. Josh and I hoped we would be
getting into a Porsche, but found ourselves in his Nissan
350Z driving around the Time Trial course at 50% speed.
In the car he pointed out the breaking points, apexes and
speeds he was going to try to achieve throughout the day.
I was a little unsure on how I was going to do, but I then
drove the track at half speed with Jeff and he instructed me
more on what I needed to do throughout the track and slowly
everything fell into place when we picked up the speed.
My first few laps with Jeff were far from smooth, but the
guidance he gave me stuck in my mind, and by the time I
rode with an instructor named Gabby everything fell into
place. I then started running faster more smooth times and
by the end of the day
I was only 2 seconds
off of my brother’s
time. Not too bad for
my first time racing. I
told Josh that day that
I had done things to
a car I’ve never done
before, it was great!

the Time Trial course and then set up the Autocross course
for Sunday, and thanks Tannia and Robyn for showing me
how to drive a box truck like a race car!!! The Autocross day
opened at sun rise with a nice cool breeze, and I was feeling
pretty good about myself. We had to walk the course and
determine our lines as if we were in the driver’s seat. I was
in the first group with Josh and rode the course with him
to find some more lines throughout the track. After each
run we talked about different things we could do to make
the next run faster, such as making this corner wider and
turning into the gate between the box and turning into the

And at one point around
the big circle, I responded
to his gas, gas, gas with
too much gas and spun the
car out in nothing less of
excitement and adrenaline.
I turned to Michael with a

the safety was impeccable

I knew the car and began

next time bro, I’m going to kick your butt, or if the old man
comes out he’ll probably end up putting us both to shame.
In all this was the best weekend I’ve had in a long time
and I look forward to doing it again. Hopefully soon I can
call it a hobby. So thanks, bro. I love you and a special
thanks to Jeff, Tannia, Robyn, Gabby, Michael, Travis,

Ed Mullenix, Tech Chair
Last month’s topic was electrical
system maintenance. I will
expand on that subject briefly and
then touch on the subject of storing your
Porsche for an extended period.
I have seen several articles on the various
threads about battery tenders (low current
battery chargers) and cut-off switches. If
you drive your Porsche every day or at least several times
during the month, you probably don’t need to worry about
it starting as long as the battery and charging system are
in good condition (re: last month’s column). If you have a
special car that only gets exercised occasionally
and only during nice weather, you might
consider one of the aforementioned items.
A battery cut-off switch is a heavy-duty
switch that you connect to your Porsche’s
battery ground cable. It usually has a red
plastic lever/key that turns the switch on and
off and is removable should you choose to do so
(great idea if you’re worried about your teenager
sneaking the car out
while you’re away,
bad idea if stuff gets
misplaced in your
garage). With a
battery switch turned
off, the static current is no longer an issue. You also lose
all of your radio preset stations or seat positions because
the memory power is disconnected. If your battery is fully
charged and you turn the battery switch off, you can come
back in several weeks and turn it back on and the car should
start. If you plan on not driving the car for several months,
a battery tender would be a better choice. Even when fully
charged and with no current drain (as in sitting on the shelf in
a parts store) an automotive lead-acid battery will discharge
after several months. A battery tender is connected to the
battery as one would any battery charger. A tender only
generates one to two amps of current so there is no worry
about overcharging. If you choose the battery tender and
leave the trunk lid open, remember to disconnect the trunk
light and micro-switch on the trunk latch. You can employ
both options and not have to bother with the trunk light,
etc. The battery tender requires that you leave it connected
to an extension cord plugged into a wall receptacle in your
garage. I have seen several cars that had a tender installed,
the trunk lid was closed, and the cord was not visible. The
result was the tender was ripped out by the roots when the
driver failed to disconnect same and drove away.
In addition to the battery issue, if you are not going to
drive your Porsche for several months there are some other
considerations as well. I had the opportunity several years
ago to place my car in long term storage when I won an allexpense
paid vacation to Iraq via the Navy! Here in Texas
we usually do not have harsh winters with months of rain
and snow. If your car is parked in a garage that protects
it from rain and cold, you don’t absolutely have to top off
the fuel tank. Moisture condensation inside a steel fuel
tank will cause rust formation. The less steel exposed to
moisture-laden air (as in full of fuel), the less possibility
of rust formation. I would recommend that you have
your oil changed shortly before you store your car. Any
combustion engine produces all sorts of weird
compounds that become acids in the presence
of water. For you non-chemistry majors,
the combustion of a gallon of gasoline will
produce more than a gallon of water. Most
of it goes out the exhaust but some finds its
way past the rings into the engine oil where
it combines to form acid (bearing-destroying)
compounds. Fresh oil has sufficient corrosion
inhibitors to prevent any corrosion for several
months. Brake fluid
absorbs moisture from
the air. If you’ve had
the brake fluid changed
within the past year, I
would not be too concerned
about it but I would get it changed when I returned the car
to service. Next, tire pressure. The tires are not perfectly
sealed to the wheels which is why we periodically have to
correct our tire pressure. Increase the tire pressure to around
45 psi. before storage to account for the slight air loss.
Lastly, rodent damage. I live next to a creek and from time
to time, I see evidence of little visitors in my garage. I place
trays of rat poison in my garage to give them something
to eat besides the insulation on my car’s wiring. Not sure
why, but there is something about the insulation on German
wiring that is irresistible to rodents. I have dogs (four at last
count) so I have to be careful where I place the poison.
Because Maverick Region encompasses the entire metroplex,
we will be having a tech session on the west side of
DFW at Autobahn Porsche. The Tech Session at Autobahn
Porsche will be on January 15th. Primary topic will be
brake system maintenance. We will discuss how driving
habits affect brake wear and have some training aids (worn
brake components) to illuminate when and why servicing is
