Haha. I love it. I’ve been thinking to do the same. I’d love to develop film as well.
It’s tricky getting colours right at night with street lighting.

Built a 3 clutch diff, Thanks to Jay for convincing me to upgrade from the standard two clutch.

Built a Test Thing

So car has been open diff'ing. Swapped a healthy S3.46 into dads car. Rebuilt his old diff with 250k on it. We thought it was healthier then it was. So I ordered 2 clutch packs from FCPEuro, and I had a S2.93 parts diff with super nice clutches. Used the best one for my 3rd clutch and its dogplate. Reused/flipped the dogplates and then reassembled. It has been one of the best things I have done to the car. Very happy with it, other then it is leaking a bit. Had the new sideseal orings, but didn't install them like an idiot. Luckily just weeping, no drops on the floor.

Did a trackday with PCA was good to finally be back at a HPDE. Car did great, the new 3 clutch diff feels super good. The Toyo RA1s are also very nice.

Gave some modern porsche hell and the olders one too

This weekend I went without the ghetto catchcan, so I had to leave it in 4th through the slow section of the track, good way to practice carrying momentum.

Really Proud of this pic:

Great photos.

Was the diff upgrade as simple as remove and replace the clutch plates? And what's the biggest advantage you have seen-- you mention it as a great upgrade but don't say why...

Yes there’s a 4mm space you remove and add a clutch disc/dog ear in its spot. They do wear a bit uneven but it’s cheap and easy enough to do.

I have noticed a lot more rear grip on corner exit. I thought the car would slide more but that is not the case. Actually using traction of both rear tires on corner exit, and car overall feels more mannered. It just made it way easier to drive. When I try to drift the car now when it is wet also no random one tire fire, both tires stay locked all the time.

On a mostly street oriented car that has street tires, I don’t think the upgrade is necessary. Just fresh clutches should be more then enough.
