  1. Just for curiosity, here´s 15 Carreras from 1997 for sale in Germany Sorry for the size of the link: http://www.mobile.de/SIDGnXJu3270PPLGBjExU...1&doSearch.y=14
  2. Or will the ABS activate? Sometimes I like to play a little with my car at the Porsche Club events. There is a concur that we play with our cars thrue some cones and the use the handbrake to loose the rear giving power just after to. This could provide me some not only fun, but also to be more quicker. I´ve a 99 with TC. J.Seven

The reasons are highly technical, but here is a copy of something I wrote as an answer to the question why Porsche do not recommend spacers of more than 5mm on the front: "The main issue with spacers
  4. I have a 99 C2 Cab with Traction control. I believe this car come with LSD (limited slip differencial) What exactly this LSD is supose to do? I believe it puts the power at the tire that has more grip when getting out of a turn, am I right? Will this LSD work with the traction control off or on? Or will it work either way? Thanks in advance.
  5. Thanks Loren i have founded in mean time while searching for DiY section, thanks anyway, your´re the man :clapping:
  6. I friend of mine just told me that you can unplug a wire on the softop control unit and have the softop working while the car is moving. Does anyone know about this hack? I know the Boxster had this possibility , but didn´t know that in 996 Cab this couls also be possible. Made a search but couldn´ t find anything. Thanks in advance. J.Seven
  7. You've got mail... I didn´t receive anything by e-mail box, can you send me again to my e-mail addrerss please. Thanks.
  8. Bought a 99 Carrera Cabrio that has a rattle where the hardtop rear spinlocks attached to chassi, it´s very anoying, is there something I can do to eliminate this? With the softop I have a rattle on the center lock, where the softop attached to the windshield. I heard there are some TBS for eliminating these bugs, can anyone provide me the link for it, I really love this car but those rattles are driving me mad. Tanks in advance.
