shtintl replied to BD997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I had the same questions but the guys at RUF said u could put H/R spgs on it and it would not affect the function of the pasm. i have an 06 997c2s. the ride after the spgs was just compliant and supple (at least to me) as the original, only the car looks muchhhhhhhhhh better. I do have to admit tho, that now when u hit the "sport" butten, the ride is verrrrry stiff (we wife refuses to drive in it if i hit the butten ha/ha) but the car handles like its truly on rails. i used it this past weekend at the PCA meet on the track and it was astonishing. overall, i recommend pretty much for all Ps b/c it just looks so much better.
****, There's no side wall left. Great looking car! What was the cost? per wheel? D Man 1650/wheel. who needs side walls when u have all that bling? ha/ha
shtintl replied to shtintl's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)sorry issues with uploading the images hopefully i'll be able to upload them by the weekend. anyways, its pretty **** scary what these cars can do. i let my instructor drive my 997C2S and needless to say i was amazed. you can read all u want about them but that will never begin to come close to being in the driver's seat (or passenger's) and pushing the car thru hairpin turns and short straights. These cars are amazing.
This weekend i was at the Drivers' Edge Course at Motorsport Ranch in Tx. It was a blast and thought i'd share some pix with you guys. I went with the RUF guys who have a dealership in Dallas, TX. They placed the H/R spgs, tint, shifter, and racing pedals in my car. anybody interested in the RUF line of products for their cars in the DFW area should go by and check out some of their cars and products, its worth your time trust me. the green 911 is a RUF RT12, its insane.
i got the rims from Boardwalk Porsche in Dallas as well as the wing. 2006 997 C2S bose, HR springs, Ruf shifter/paddles, 20in ,techart wing, PSE , clear bra by Ruf
shtintl replied to thelion's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have 2006 C2S guards red, blk leather red seatbelts, PSE, rear spoiler techart, 20in rims, HR springs, RUF shifter and paddles. the look with the springs is killer, i cant look at a stock porsche anymore and not thnk that the gap is huge. i agree with the post above about the handling, my near term pregnant wife almost had a cardiac arrest when i took her in it with the sport turned on. the exhaust is def worth the money. this car is amazing, the only problem is u run out of road very quickly. hope everyone loves theirs as much as i do. steve
shtintl replied to oonsi's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)hey guys: i'm new to this forum. hope everyone is enjoying their 997 as much as i am. i'm not a guru when it comes to cars, and this is my first porsche (C2S) but i have the same problem in that first does not engage easily until the either the engine/tranny warms up, or i start from a dead stop. i never shift into first if i'm going faster than 10mph
