Last Call: Brake Gs are no joke!

My buddy Kenny (who you may remember from the NSX video and article) loves to track his 911 Turbo. He has been out early and often with the Porsche Club of America (PCA) – Potomac Region. During a recent outing at Summit Point Motorsports Park, he had a unique experience. The braking and cornering G’s ejected his driver’s side headlight right out of the car!  He credits the STEK Automotive DynoShield Paint protection film for saving the light.  Apparently the lens was in-tact after he recovered it. Pretty wild.  #BreakGs

    I’d say he was de-ligthed

    TL;DR The Porsche was a headlight projector but it’s okay because he had a projector headlight protector.

    Weird vehicle history: Floods last year uncovered a vehicle in a river in mid-Norway.

    Turns out, it is 1 of 2 remaining three-axle Austro Daimler ADGR. 361 were build between 1936-1940, with a 72hp 6 cylinder engine. After 80 years in the river, there was air in the tires and the gearbox was moving freely. Best of all, this machine is now being restored. The finders found traces of the original paint and are going for that now.
