John Hamilton, President

We’ve got a busy 2011 ahead!

By the time you read this, we

will have had our All Member

Party to kick off the New Year. Plus, we

had a Tech Session in January on brake

maintenance, and one coming on February

19th on Self-Teching your car for DE (see

the ad later in this Slipstream). Our Happy

Hours continue to be extremely well-attended – hope to see

you at the Fox Sports Grill in Plano on Feb. 17th.

Our Board Meeting had a number of very positive reports,

AND the beginning of discussions on our Maverick

Region’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Our committee will

be forming over the next two months, so if you’re interested

in contributing, please contact me and I’ll be sure to pass

along your interest to the soon-to-be-formed committee.

Also at our board meeting, Mike Farrar offered to help our

Drivers’ Education Equipment Manager, Luke Edson, with

the equipment. Thanks, Mike! Brendan Eagan joined us to

see how he could contribute. I invite each of you to join

us at a board meeting which includes a free dinner and see

what we do and see how you could give a little back. Just

RSVP to social@mavpca.org and we’ll take care of the rest.

Our next Board Meeting is Wednesday, March 2nd.

Speaking of Drivers’

Education (D.E.), our new

schedule has been posted

for 2011. Our first event is

March 12-13 at Eagles Canyon

Raceway just outside Denton.

I hope to see you there.

For being the Maverick of the Month, The Silver

Fox in Grapevine is giving Mike dinner for two at their

award winning steak house.

So THANK YOU, Mike, for all you do!

John

Mav of the Month

Who is more deserving of our

Mav of the Month award than

Mike Brodigan – our larger

than life president, for the

last two years, who has kept

the focus on our core values:

the people and activities of

the Maverick Region and

our Hope Shelter charity?

Congratulations, Mike, and

thank you for all you’ve done

as president, and will continue

to do as our new Drivers’

Education chair!

Richard Bradley, Managing Editor

Today is the day to make a difference!

We all have the opportunity to make

a difference if we so choose. We can

start in the garage, with a neighbor, even

in our community. Let’s work together

as a community, a tight knit, well oiled,

German machine and make a difference.

We can see the changes we have shared in

as we look back at the changes that have taken place at the

HOPE Shelter. We can also see a difference on page four

with our newly elected officers, and if you look real closely,

you will see a blank space, a space waiting for you to step

up and make a difference in our Region. Please consider

joining us as we begin planning for the Region’s 50th year

anniversary. It’s going to be an awesome event!

As you enjoy this month’s issue, I hope you notice some of

the changes taking place. We’ve added the number of

members to the New Wheels page so you can see how our

region is continually growing. Even in today’s environment,

we added 22 new members to our roster which only indicates

to me, that this club is about the people. Thank you Alan

Bambina, one of our past Presidents, for coining the phrase,

“It’s not just the cars, it’s the people!”

Maverick Minutes

Secretary, Madhu Rao

Make it smooth. That’s my first

thought as I compose these

meeting minutes. Lisa Steele

has been so helpful to me by creating

a smooth transition for me into this

role. This is a great opportunity to

say Thank You to Lisa for all of

your past, present, and future contributions

to the Maverick Region.

The January meeting briefly reviewed 2010

accomplishments and focused on plans for 2011-2012.

The 2011 Maverick Region Board Officers were installed

and include: President – John Hamilton, Vice-President

Chris Christensen, Treasurer – Jim Falgout, and Secretary

– Madhu Rao. A brief bio of each officer and their contact

information appears on page 4 in this edition of Slipstream.

Please contact us with your comments, suggestions, and

questions.

As President, John opened the meeting by thanking the

previous officers and chairs for a great year. He then

outlined the need to create a culture of inclusion, fun, and

fellowship in all Maverick Region activities. John described

a goal to increase the involvement amongst our nearly

1800 members through a strategy of Fun & Fifty. The fun

part is synonymous with how this Region approaches our

events, no explanation needed there! The fifty relates to our

region’s 50th anniversary coming up in 2012. John noted

that a subcommittee will be established to help plan this

wonderful event and asked for any potential volunteers.

Those responding “yes” included Mike Farrar (see below),

BJ Harvey, Christy Payne, Lisa Steele, Richard Bradley

and Madhu Rao. Additional information is forthcoming.

Lastly, John mentioned that an update on the Hope Shelter

would be available later this quarter.

As Treasurer, Jim reported that “we have money.” Jim

requested budgets from the activity chairs to facilitate his

planning and review work for 2011. Those in attendance

thanked Jim for his leadership in this role.

Driving right along, Robyn and Travis Howard (aka

“Gridmaster T”) shared the upcoming Autocross and Time

Trial (AX/TT) events in 2011 and their interest in finding

a large outdoor venue to host future events. If you are

aware of such a venue please contact them! AX events are

currently scheduled for March 19th and April 9th, 2011.

Please check the Maverick Region website and future issues

of Slipstream for information.

Pat Friend noted that our sponsor relationships and

payments continue to develop to a very high level. This

may be due to the value associated with Slipstream and our

Maverick Region activities. He noted that the Goodie Store

is running smoothly.

Shifting gears, Ed Mullenix mentioned two upcoming

Tech sessions in Q1 2011. The first one is on January

15th at Autobahn Porsche in Fort Worth. The second is on

February 19th at Boardwalk Porsche in Plano. These are

great opportunities to learn more about your Porsche from

individuals who are passionate about their Porsches.

Richard Bradley, the managing editor of Slipstream, is

really Happy! The January 2010 Slipsteam includes two

features about Maverick Region Happy Hours. Great news!

Richard also noted the Drivers’ Education ad on page 9 of

the January edition of Slipstream should read; March 12-13,

2011. You really didn’t want to wait until October, did you?

Christy Payne, the Social Chair, noted that the total

proceeds from Founders Day exceeded $3800! Total

attendance was 90. (Thank You to Christy and everyone

involved for organizing such a wonderful event.) Christy

also provided an overview of the January All-Member

party and shared some very interesting future venues under

consideration. Christy also presented the 2010 Maverick

Region Top Driver award to Robyn Howard (female) and

8


Ray Kelly (male). Congratulations! Given the caliber of

drivers in this region this is a great achievement.

Mike Brodigan is DE man this year. Seriously, he really is!

Mike is the new Drivers’ Education (DE) chair this year. He

noted the strong attendance in 2010 and thanked everyone

for their help to make these events great. His vision for

2011 is to increase DE participation. His first proposal is

to assign mentors to DE participants. His second relates

to offering a promotional incentive for advanced drivers to

sustain their participation throughout the year.

John Harvey chairs the Sunday Drive events this year.

Arranging these drives requires lots of planning. He and last

year’s chair, Clint Blackman, received recognition for doing

so. John noted that 25 drivers took part in the December

2010 Holiday Lights Tour. He also noted that March 6th

will be the first Sunday Drive this year. He also presented

a concept idea of an overnight Saturday/Sunday in the

regional area.

John Harvey and Mike Brodigan shared information from

our Rally Chair Carey Spreen. John H. noted that he and

Carey would be conducting site visits to evaluate locations

for a Rally event. Mike B. noted that Carey is writing

an article about Richard Selcer and the history of the award

bearing Mr. Selcer’s name. Carey welcomes any additional

information from Maverick Region members about

Mr. Selcer.

Chris Christensen was a Happy man too! He noted that

all of the Happy Hour restaurants were already secured for

2011. Some of the venues are favorite Maverick Region

locales and some are new to the Region. He looks forward

to handling the procedural details associated with our

Region and noted a smooth transition in responsibilities

from Bryan Bell.

Maverick Moments. Since this is a member-driven

organization based on transparency the Board encourages

members to attend the monthly board meetings. Meetings

are typically held on the first Wednesday of the month.

Attending this meeting were two members, Mike Farrar and

Brendan Egan. Having been a member for 10 years, Mike

attended his first meeting in December to determine how

he could ‘give-back’ to the region. At this meeting Mike

volunteered to help out Luke Edson (the DE equipment

manager) as well as serve on the 50th anniversary committee.

Thank you very much! Brendan Egan also attended and

mentioned that his goals were to meet more people in the

Region and participate in more activities. Sounds great,

Brendan. We look forward to seeing you at upcoming events

this year.

Meeting adjourned 8:10 pm.

Hope for Christmas 2010

By Clara Lewis

Photos by James Gunaca & Dave Frick

It was a happy and jolly December 18th as we Mavericks

celebrated Christmas with the Huffaker-Hughes Hope

House. For the second year in a row

we met at the First Presbyterian Church in

Mineral Wells.

Thanks to the

generosity of

Rev. Paton

Wall and his

congregation.

As Santa’s

sleighs (driven

by Chris

Rev. Paton Wall with Santa Hamilton and

Clara Lewis)

arrived with gifts, Lisa Huffaker and her

merry elves had been at work. The tree was

trimmed, decorations adorned the dining

Lisa Huffaker & Santa

hall, tables were set, and a bountiful array of food

Jean Frick leading songs

was inviting.

At the appointed time “High Noon,” Santa flew

down to give gifts to 17 mothers and 23 anxious

children, residents and past residents of Hope

Shelter.

Back by popular demand was the STV Almrausch Bavarian

Dancers. This is the second year they have given of their time

and talents of music,

dance and song.

Three children of this

traveling group were

so touched by their

experience

of last year

Annika & Ethan

Keesecker,& Alyssa Kramer

STV Almrausch

Bavarian Dancers

that they

said they

wanted to

do more.

And more

they did.

S t a r t i n g

in January

2 0 1 0 ,

A n n i k a

Keesecker 12 and Alyssa Kramer 10 started baby sitting

and performing other jobs small and large to save money

for the Hope Children’s Christmas. Ethan Keesecker, 7

took money from his savings account to participate in this

fund. Parents Rich and Susan Keesecker matched the total

funds raised. The children purchased WalMart gift cards

and gave them to the mothers and children.

To finish the fun filled day, Jean Frick

with her violin led us in Christmas

Carols. It wouldn’t have felt like a

complete Christmas without Jean’s

talents.

Maybe next Christmas you will be

blessed at seeing the happy faces of

the mothers and their children at the

Huffaker Hughes Hope House

Christmas Party.

A great time

by all enjoying

the music

& gifts.

eNthusiAst:

I purchased my 911 back in December 2006 from Park Place Porsche. I’ve always driven German

cars, but never a Porsche. Randall, the parts manager, introduced the PCA world to me. After

the first try I was hooked, and since then, I’ve done frequent DE events with Park Place.

Park Place has, by far, the best service department. The technicians are very skilled, friendly

and informative, and their attention to detail is superb. It is also a comforting feeling that many

of them are involved in motor sports, which takes the guesswork out of performance upgrades.

They’re unlike any other dealership I’ve worked with in recommending and helping you not only

with Porsche parts and accessories, but also after-market products to improve performance

while maintaining your warranty.

Among the upgrades I’ve made are a short shifter, spacers, a high flow filter, and performance

brake pads, but my favorite changes are the suspension modifications and straight flow exhaust,

because of the performance and sound. I’ve been really impressed with the whole family of

Park Place. From service to parts, everyone really works together to meet all your needs at

great prices.

Another thing I really like about Park Place Porsche is that they really focus

on building a relationship. Going to Park Place doesn’t feel like going to a dealership; it feels like

a fun place to hang out and talk cars. The overall experience at Park Place has been above and

beyond any other car dealerships, and I’m definitely going to be a lifelong customer.

A “Sound” Review

By Clint Blackman

As many of you recall, I got

to meet many, many famous

P o r s c h e

people at the grand

opening of the

Porsche Museum

last January. Dieter

Landenberger was

one of my favorites. Dieter is the

Deputy Director at Porsche in charge

of the Porsche Archives located on

the upper floors of the Museum.

The Museum has a library of every

photograph taken of a Porsche...every

movie... every article..... everything

that ever said Porsche! (They even

have copies of our Slipstream!)

Dieter is the author of several

Porsche books including Die Marke,

Porsche Chronicle, The Porsche Way

and others. Dieter recently published

his new book, Porsche Sounds.

Porsche Sounds is terrific! Dieter

has produced a collection of

incredible Porsche SOUNDS from their most famous

Porsche sportscars! This unique book contains

outstanding stereophonic CD reproductions of thirty of

Porsche’s finest engines from the Number 1 Roadster to

the Panamera Turbo. The recordings are so fine that you

can “feel” these great cars as they roar past you, “right to

left” on the track. In addition to the Sounds CD, Dieter

also included a collection of great “Performance” driving

music...with “Can’t Slow Down” by Foreigner and other

contemporary driving tunes. The third “Elegance” CD is

a collection of terrific classical music that “waltzes you

down the road.”

Besides these great recordings... this collector quality,

hard cover “Ear Book” is an outstanding collection of

photographs from the Porsche Museum archives. 219

pages cover the 30 cars represented on the Sounds CD.

The photos on each car include full color publicity

photos, candid racing photos to photos that have not

been seen in years. Page 5 is a thumbnail photo page of

each car on the Sound CD that makes it easy to match

each CD track to the specific Porsche auto. The book has

a European flair as it is written in both German and

English. This book is a “must have” for any Porschephile

book collection. You can find Porsche Sounds on

Amazon for $32.97! It really is a great book.

Porsche Sounds...There is no substitute for the sound of a

Porsche!

Cliff’s Ramblings: “off the wall department” of my mind, I ramble.

By Cliff Blackshear

I

originally intended this article to

be an interview/ramble about the

Flying Lizard race team and the 2011

season. Our workshop’s resident Lizard

(Abel Jimenez) has been away for many,

many weeks with the team preparing for

24 Hour Le Mans race and ALMS GT2

season. Plus I know from talking with him

they have prepared a prototype for the Grand Am 24 Hour

race and it has been laborious to develop to now. Getting the

car ready has been grueling for them.

I will have to delay that article for now. I hit a writers’ block

on how to write it and did not get with Abel soon enough.

Now I have something put together for the article, but do

not have permission from Flying Lizard PR department to

send in. Hummmm… He showed me some great pics he

has taken in the shop, but can’t share any without proper

permission, most understandable. I would not submit

anything here without the official permission of the Flying

Lizard PR department. A rough draft has been submitted to

them and I’m awaiting permission for it as well as photos I

like from the prep shop.

So from the “off the wall department” of my mind, I

ramble.

Here is something I have been thinking about for quite

some time. I’ve been pondering all the changes with our

fuel injection systems a lot lately. Mainly I reach back

to when I started and love how things have evolved; it is

interesting to me. Porsche introduced mechanical injection

way, way back. 911E I believe. Purists can get all upset if

I do not know exact year etc. or list all the other cars that

ran this system. I honestly do not care. I grew very intimate

with this system, how it works, how to set it up etc., at 1

mile above sea level in Colorado. It was challenging to say

the least. I learned how to make that system sing. Once

correctly set up it needed little attention afterwards. T’s E’s

and S 911’s all set up differently in that environment. It was

a system designed to get HP at high R’s. At low revs it was

dirty, and wasteful. The howl from a mechanical injected E

or S at wide open throttle between 4500 and redline is still

one of the most awesome sounds an engine can make as far

as I’m concerned.

In 1972, I went to training for the introduction of the 1973

911T. The car had 1 battery instead of 2 and introduced

CIS injection. Mechanical injected and CIS injected cars

were sold side by side for a short period afterwards. CIS

injection was a huge change. It was fraught with early

production problems. Porsche hammered us with training

on the system over and over for years. The system became

pretty darned efficient. Introduction of oxygen sensing in

1980 really made it an environmentally friendly system. Yet

that system was quite flawed in retrospect. It was the leading

edge technology of the day though.

Then Digital Motor Electronics (DME) was introduced and

is still with us today. 1987 944S was first to have adaptive

control. Disconnect the battery on this car, then reconnect,

start engine, and it will run erratically (especially at idle).

Yet after a few minutes it adapts to all inputs and smooths

out. The 1984 Carrera was basically bullet proof. We just

had no problems with it. It ran clean. HP output was always

as designed and EPA was kept happy. Porsche never stopped

pushing the boundaries. More HP while meeting emission

mandates was their theme. It has morphed into an amazing

system too. LSU O2 sensors, direct injection fuel metering

that we can see and monitor in micro grams per injection

stroke. My little blue-collar mind loves this stuff.

Today the injection system constantly strives to put fuel and

ignition moments exactly on point for both environmental

needs and power demands. If you drive a new 997 GT3RS in

heavy traffic today it will stay on lean limit, putting out near

nothing as far as carbon monoxide, hydro carbon, oxides of

nitrogen, pollutants are concerned. Grandma this car around

and the combustion chambers will not care. They will stay

clean and be ready for combat any time. It will run smooth

under any conditions. Take that same car to the track and it

will just scream with awesome performance. It does not get

any better than that, period!

Direct injection combined with the trusty DME has been

an amazing system. It makes the combustion process so

much more efficient. Combine a very efficient injection

process with a monitoring system that constantly monitors

input data, then edits all output fuel and ignition point data

in micro seconds and it is pretty amazing to witness.

Today we can go to an “actual value menu” and see the

edits the system is making. Witness the combustion process

monitoring, determine if required exhaust gas output is “on

point” and what small edits were made in injection stroke,

cam timing, and ignition points. When everything is inside

the design boundaries the engine is making all the HP it

can, while burning as little fuel as possible, thus creating the

smallest amount of emissions possible.

When a fuel stroke edit is created we can see it. If the

engine is a little lean on one bank a bit of fuel is added to

compensate and maximum efficiency is once again reached.

If its too rich then a little fuel is taken away to keep the

combustion process correct. There are numbers we can look

at that tell us what changes were made to keep everything

stoichiometric…….. continued on pg 20

February 19


Cliff’s Ramblings: continued

The changes in these systems always come with other

interesting changes, too. Piston crown shape is ever changing

to facilitate and sometimes dictate injection/combustion

processes.

Getting the air to the combustion chambers via intake

manifolds, turbo chargers, intercoolers, air cleaners, intake

scoops, is constantly evolving and Porsche refers to this

as “Charge Air” or “Cylinder Filling.” Intake manifold

air columns that are constantly messaged with “manifold

expansion technology,” are variable turbine technology, etc.

It’s completely amazing what these engineers continue to

develop year after year.

Trying To Not Early Apex In Life!

Member Spotlight: Tom Greer

Andrea Bell, Public Relations Chair

This month’s new member spotlight

is on Tom Greer. When I initially

contacted Tom about this story,

he hesitated because he felt like he was

boring. After some encouragement from

his wife however, he finally agreed to

participate. Tom retired after thirty-one

years as a police officer, but said he got

bored within a few months. So he now works for another

police department reviewing red light videos and as a desk

officer. During his years in law enforcement, he has worked

patrol, narcotics, and various other plainclothes assignments.

He was also a police emergency driving instructor and he

taught motorcycle safety for several years in the DFW area.

Tom said that he has always wanted a Porsche, but until

recently just had other places to put his money. He and his

wife purchased a 2008 Cayman a few months back and

say they love it. He said, “We’re planning on taking it on

weekend getaways. I still ride my Harley, but the Cayman is

the first choice now when we go someplace.”

Tom is a native Texan and has basically lived in the DFW

area all of his life. (He has lived in Garland, Dallas, and

now is in Fort Worth.) His father was in the Air Force so

he moved around in the States and even lived in England

briefly. He attended school in Denison. He then joined the

Marine Corps and spent time in the Philippines.

Tom keeps busy with three daughters and three

grandchildren all living in the DFW area. Tom said he also

enjoys traveling, reading, and F1 racing. However he added,

he spends most of the time chasing the grandkids! (I can

almost see him grinning from here.)

I think you will agree that Tom is definitely not boring and

I owe his wife a big thank you for giving him “the look” that

helped convince him to be in our Spotlight! I imagine he

has all kinds of stories to share – just ask him. Please look

for him and his wife at future Maverick events and welcome

them into our family. If you are a new member and would

like to be considered for our monthly “SPOTLIGHT”

feature, please contact me at pr@mavpca.org.

Happy Hour - Love and War in Texas

Happy Hour would be held

at the Love and War, Plano

location. Since there are

only two locations in the

wrong, but mistakes happen.

We apologize and hope no one

is too upset with us. We will

try harder next time, hopefully

preventing this from happening again.

This was our first Happy Hour at Love and War; we

will schedule it again next year since all (Happy Hour)

It Really IS the People!

Tannia Dobbins, AX Chair

2010 is over and the 2011 season

is just around the corner. Yes, I

still have much to do to get my

car ready. What do I want to upgrade

now before the season starts? Do I

want to go ahead and get a set of tires?

I also have to make sure that all the “To

Do” items are done for getting ready

Tannia Dobbins for the AX season. Did I get all the

dates lined up for

the events this year? Do they conflict

with other Maverick events? Do they

conflict with non-Porsche club driving

events? Will people turn out this year?

Will those that did last year be back ?

Did they enjoy the events? And, did

others get their cars fixed?

For those of us that participate in

Maverick’s Autocross and Time

Trial events there is a lot to do to get

ready for events days. Tires, check.

Mike Lockas

Brake fluid, check. Helmet, check. Car

numbers, check. Register, check. Pay, check. Hat, check.

The list goes on and on. And, when events are over, we wait

anxiously for the scores to be posted so we can see who had

the fastest time of the day, fastest in class, etc. Yes, this is

all FUN!

Truth be told, we do focus on the results and the journey

to the acclaimed “Top

Driver” award. However,

today that is not my focus

as I want to recognize

the dedicated individuals

who do all of the above,

but also help make

these events fun

and available for

car enthusiasts to

enjoy - both for

Maverick members

and other local

Travis Howard clubs. Without

them, there would

be no Autocross and Time Trial events. It is about

the cars; but, it is also about the dedicated volunteers

who consistently and unselfishly roll up their sleeves

to help continue the AX and TT traditions! If you are

not that familar with the events, you might remember

the cars they drive more than the faces behind the cars

-- especilly since their cars often get more exposure in

Photos by Charlie Davis

Slipstream. So, now you

get to take a look at the

people behind the cars!

Travis Howard, TT Chair,

had some interesting

words not long ago when

he mentioned that as he

volunteered he didn’t

really think about his

“exit strategy.” I

Carey Spreen

guess not since

he is the Chair for the 2011 season, too! I, for one,

am glad. Travis is always there, with a smile, and

will do whatever he needs to do to help out at the

events - TT or AX alike.

Carey Spreen doesn’t have an official role in the

AX and TT events, but his absence would be greatly

noticed. Carey always helps clean up the course

and has on every occasion has said “sure” without

a second thought when I’ve asked if he could be our

chief driving instructor for the day.

Mike Lockas is responsible for the AX and TT worker

assignments but he always helps in any way he can - often

instructing others, helping

with course setup and

cleanup, etc. He can always

be counted on and does so

graciously.

Chuck McCoy is another

person that doesn’t have

a formal role. But, that

doesn’t stop him from

contributing to the overall

success of the season. I

Chuck McCoy

think that Chuck is always there!

He helps with “cone management,”

instructs, and helps do tech

inspections.

Richard Diller is our resident

“Guard Dog” taking on the role of

watching over our gear and cars

while we are off sleeping in our

dry, warm hotel rooms, grabbing

lunch, or enjoying the company of

the club members at dinner after

Richard Diller

the events. Thank you, Richard.

Also, special thanks to Carole for the great cupcakes!

Robyn Howard didn’t have formal role in 2010, unless you

26


It Really IS the People! continued

really want to count keeping

me in line. Literally, she

was the force behind me

getting the schedule out, the

awards completed, and, did I

mention talking me into the

job of AX Chair? Hmmm.

Lesson here: Do not answer

the phone when Robyn calls

:-)

Robyn Howard

Jeff Herrmann is our “tech

inspector” so he seems to be busy buzzing around making

sure everyone else is ready to drive - before getting his own

car ready. He always helps breakdown the course and, most

of the time, is the last to leave

the event when the day is done.

He also helps Richard as the

backup for “Guard Dog” duty.

Darron Shaffer was noticeably

absent during the 2010 season,

but that didn’t stop him for

answering the phone and

patiently helping us newbies

Jeff Herrmann figure out

the timing

equipment (again). It only took me the

whole season lots of Darron’s patience,

but I think I FINALLY know what to do

with the gear.

Charlie Davis, our esteemed Truxster

driver, and resident photographer.

Charlie has slowed the pace lately but

that doesn’t mean his contributions

have. In fact, it was Charlie that gave Darron Shaffer

me Truxster driving lessons ... objects

flying out the door and all. The good news is that we managed

to actually find

them the next day

when picking up

the course!

Kristi Kelly gets

special recognition

-- since she doesn’t

actually drive in the

events. She comes

out to support Ray

Charlie Davis

and often times

helps us post or work timing when we are short handed.

And, did I mention that she also has a nice warm trailer and

feeds us occasionally? Hmmm.

Better not let that word get out.

Michael Pelletier probably has

one of the most challenging jobs

- TT and AX registrar. While he

runs the job out of his Boxster,

unlike Andrea Bell who seemed

to have a whole office setup, he

does manage to get it all done and

Kristi Kelley

remembers who did what, who still

owes, who needs to be classified, etc. Thank you, Michael.

This would not be complete

without mentioning others

including those that are not

Porsche drivers! We have lots

of other drivers attend our events

and take part in the rivalries,

and many of these drivers

contribute to the success of the

season as well. Special mention

goes to Mitch Williams, James

Michael Pelletier Wilkinson, and Joshua Dexter.

They may not make every event,

but when they do you can count on them helping

anyway they can. They will make ice runs, setup

the course, breakdown the course, and even feed the

whole lot occasionally!

For those of you that came out and play with us,

thank you! For those that contributed to the fun, you

are appreciated.

See you in 2011.

Tech Corner

Ed Mullenix, Tech Chair

Our first ever tech session in Fort

Worth was a huge success.

Sixteen or so enthusiastic Porsche

owners showed up at Autobahn on a chilly

rainy Saturday morning. Our thanks to

Beth Hooker, the service manager, and Jeff

Knoebel, the shop foreman at Autobahn,

for providing an informative session on

brake system maintenance. Jeff fielded a lot of questions

and everyone went away with a better understanding of

brake operation and maintenance.

Our next tech session will be at Boardwalk Porsche on

February 19th before the DE season kicks off on March

13th. We will be discussing the pre-event tech sheet and its

relationship to track safety.

Spells, Incantations, and Repair Procedures

This past month, I had three 964/993 Carrera variants in

the shop with alternator problems. One failure is an anomaly,

two a coincidence, and three is a trend. On the ’89 -’98

Carreras, Porsche separated the cooling fan and the

alternator. They each have their own drive belt. To minimize

the power loss of the cooling fan, it turns at a slower speed

than the alternator. The fan housing is made of magnesium.

The engine case on which it mounts, is made of aluminum.

Even though the two metals are neighbors on the periodic

table, they are considered dissimilar metals and as such,

subject to galvanic corrosion. Porsche also quit installing a

ground cable on the alternators. The return path of all 110

amps of current produced by the alternator is via the engine

case/fan housing interface. Take two dissimilar metals, 110

amps or so of electrical current, and a little moisture from

the atmosphere, voila! A corrosion cell to die for. A

remanufactured alternator on a 964 or 993 is more than

$600. After replacing one of those babies on a 993, it still

only produced 50 amps, way less than the 100+ amps

specified. Thinking it was a faulty remain, I obtained and

replaced another with the same result. Some head scratching,

a lot of cussing, and several trouble-shooting tests later, I

determined that the corrosion between the fan housing and

the engine case was so severe as to limit the current transfer

to only 50 amps. The correction was to take a rotary wire

brush on an electric drill and remove the corrosion from

both fan housing and engine case. To ward off “evil spirits”

and to slow down future development of corrosion, I also

installed a ground cable on the alternator and attached it to

a case bolt. Of the three cars with charging system problems,

only one really had a faulty alternator. Things that make you

say “huh!”
