... so many "old" (not regular) monikers popping up lately.
Paralizer, macsak, Meredith, Karl, old timer, etc.
It's great to hear from all of you!
There are also hundreds of lurkers on PB as well.
When I check the roster to do upkeep of the Forum, I notice that almost half of our active members (48.9%) have NEVER posted on the board.
That means that these members are regular visitors but for whatever reason they choose to stay in the shadows.
Come on! Time to post something, even just a "hi there".
Happy Porscheing,
Pedro

i agree, pedro

a couple of stories-
i have a patient that has a similar build, coloration, accent, beard/mustache/hair as you and his name is Pedro!
he goes by "Pete" sometimes though
i doubt he has any idea why i like him so much

i moderate a local gun forum here in hawaii
i have gotten a couple of private messages on that forum from a "cecil" in florida
he was given the link by a friend, and he noticed that one of the most prolific posters was named "macsak"
LOL

Hey! What a Friday night. Great to see some of the old 51.1% of the regular visitors here. Feels like old times. Next thing you know, Joanne's going to be stalking some ship or somebody's going to push the Kaboom button on the dash of their Boxster.
It'd be great to hear some of the "silent" 48,9% tell us about one of their favourite posts and a little about themselves.

Fellow long-timers! Nice to see your names again.

My original car is running well (and faster). Not the original engine, and the "nth" transmission, but still.... I probably put fewer than 2,000 miles on it per year now, but they are the most demanding miles.

Great article Trygve. It's great for those thinking about getting into racing their Boxsters. The slippery slope, the rewards / satisfaction and what to expect if your really get involved in spec racing.
Great article, as usual, Pedro.

Specially informative for those who want to learn more about the role of the ECU and a great guide for those people wanting to add more power to their Porsches. As you pointed out in the article, today's cars are much more complicated than back in the "good old days". Amazing what mileage and performance advances electronics have helped manufactures make and at the same time reduce emissions. There's a lot to consider if you want to successfully add power.
