The good folks at the dealership have invited the region members to a tech session at their state of the art facility in Warwick R.I. on April 21stth starting at 10am. Start time is subject to change, please check back for any updates.
At their last tech session, three topics were discussed:
- The importance of wheel balance and alignment regarding handling, safety, ride comfort, and the protection of the client’s investment in their tires and rims. It encompassed their service department’s facilities in providing the proper equipment and Hunter trained individuals to provide the proper technique and experience to correctly mount and balance tires and setup the vehicle’s geometry correctly.
- Hybrid vehicles and the coming electric vehicles: They discussed current hybrids as far as basic operation, proper charging, and current apps to monitor and maintain the vehicles state of charge.
- Air cooled 911 maintenance : The importance of valve adjustment and proper cam timing was discussed and demonstrated. A 1980 911 engine was on the bench to demonstrate proper valve adjustment for the owners that want to take care of this themselves.
Check back for the final topics from Denis and George at Porsche of Warwick as things proceed. Have any requests for Denis & George? Let Glenn Champagne know and he will pass them on!
