At Holgate Brewery in Woodend. Numbers had dropped to about 10 people by 4pm. It was a long day...

Some really nice cars there and it looked like a good event. How does the fully hyrdo 560 compare with a 6.9?

Thatís what Iíve been trying to establish for a while! We didnít have time for a direct comparison on the day. Plus Dora was playing up in the afternoon. If I was to take an educated guess Iíd say the 560 suspension is a lot firmer than the 6.9. But perhaps itís not working as it should so further research and diagnosis is required. Iíve heard the S2 hydro defaults to firm if not operating correctly so there may be a problem. Iím still searching for a S2 hydro manual in English....

Performance wise the 560 is fast but isnít as eager to lose traction as the 6.9. But once the 560 is running correctly; who knows!

It may be necessary to hire a race track for a 560 v 6.9 direct comparison! Phillip Island, Winton or Sandown come to mind. Heathcote is another option but thatís just a drag strip. Maybe MBCV might be interested in a track day?

If thereís no interest from MBCV or costs are too high, Iíll consider sharing a venue, a combined event, or just tag along with the Porsche CV....

That would be a cool club day. I hope they go for it.
