When you're out there on the track, jumping from one vibrator to another, you can never have too much stopping force - this is what many drivers believe before hitting the track for the first time in the lives.
However, upon spending some time on the circuit, track day enthusiasts that fading resistance is just as important. And they start looking for solutions.

Well, the guy you see in these images is the opposite of that, meaning that he comes up with solutions that help drivers achieve their goals on the track. The man turned to Reddit to showcase his latest work and since we came across the bits he put together, we simply had to share them with you.

We're talking about some goodies the man fabricated for a Porsche Cayman R. And yes, he also installed them on the machine. The ex-generation mid-engined Zuffenhausen machine hasn't just been improved in the fight with the stopwatch. Oh no. This Porsche, which was already a beast in factory stock trim, has gone all racecar.

This obviously meant that nothing else besides lap times mattered. As a result, the Porsche was gifted with cooling hardware for the front brakes. We're talking about a fan and ducts that take the air to the wheel wells. And these images allow us to zoom in on the little details, so if you're not the kind who has a mechanical fetish, you'd better now waste your time with them.

Sure, the hardware we're talking about now occupies the Cayman R's frunk, but that space didn't serve any other purpose anyway, so the packaging was far from an issue here.

Then we have the headlight covers - in its extreme diet, the Cayman R lost its headlights, but the massive holes needed to be covered with something. So our guy used his English wheel skills to deliver a pair of covers.

And we can only imagine how this Poscha feels mid-corner, after having received the serious circuit treatment seen here, which involves much more than the bits mentioned above.
