1999 not suited for track use?

Hi Joel,

I just read  in the july issue of Panorama that you don't think that the 1999 996 engine and transmission are suitable for track use. What??? You just scared the hell out of me! Can you elaborate as to why you said that, and what if anythng can or should be done to make my car more suitable or reliable for track use?.I have happily  tracked my 1999 C2 on street tires on occasion and have grown to love the car for its pure driving pleasure. I am aware of the IMS bearing issue that relates to all of the M96 series engines, as well as the oil starvation issues that are possible when running with R-compound tires.
