  1. Thanks all. ABelzile - that's exactly the problem. With the PCCB, the brake pedal is pretty high up and on the street, I never need to brake hard enough. I drive my RS everyday. Paul - the Dubai track is good fun. Some crazy cars on their track days. Their kart track has been extended to now include a 500m indoor track (for the hot summer) as well. Total track length of 1.7km when they're joined. I might try the Rennline kit then....
  2. Hi all, I can't heel and toe no matter how hard I try. Any recommendations on pedals? I'm hesitant to try different pedals to see what works as I don't want to drill into the factory pedals and definitely don't want to use double-sided tapes to check. I figured that anyone else who has a similar problem who has found a pedal that works is a better bet than some dude at a shop. I'm in Dubai where there isn't a lot of information - most 911s are sold as automatic so there doesn't seem to be much information at the showroom or workshop either. Cheers.
  3. Mine's just developed the same. Same place, same noise but only between 3,000 and 4,000 RPM - strange how it only happens at those revs.... If anyone figures it out, please let me know.
  4. I read in a magazine about a company called Manthey Racing that's doing a lot of tuning for the GT3. Their view is that the GT3 can be tweaked to deliver RS performances. I think they had developed or were developing various things, mostly to do with weight reduction - carbon fibre door trim, lightweight wheels, non-glass window panels etc etc - as well as handling - new LSD, suspension parts etc etc. One thing that interested me a lot was their exhaust system. Apparently, their titanium muffler will reduce around 20 kg from stock. Has anyone come across this muffler or anything else from Manthey? Their website is all in German....
  5. Mine doesn't make the noise while I'm moving. Only when not in gear.
  6. Sounds exactly like the noises I have. I've become used to it and have heard another RS make the same noises while idling at a traffic light. I'm now trying to get used to the creaks and squeaks from the roll cage. I don't understand why they have such a complicated roll cage with so many parts. Is there any way to reduce the creaks? WD40?

    Thanks Max Power - I must have the P23 system then. One more question.... I've started using up to 5,000 RPM now. At just over 4,000 RPM the exhaust note changes considerably and becomes louder - it's much more resonant. I presume this is due to the variable timing? The sounds seems louder when on Sports mode - is there an additional exhaust valve as well that opens in Sports mode?

    vramani - Nice. You've an RS and a GT? I've had mine white with matte black on rims and mirrors. Very similar. My front lip keeps scraping so didn't even bother getting it painted. Thanks for the answers, vramani and sheim911rs.

    I get the rattle when the clutch is NOT depressed. Goes away when clutch is depressed. Hmmm....

    Thanks for the response. The clutch rattle sounds exactly like the noice made by a twin plate clutch. I live in Abu Dhabi, UAE and have some doubts about the quality of the Porsche workshop here and hence don't want to take to the workshop unless I have to. Definitely prefer to not have them drop the transmission to check for noise if it is normal. In any case, thanks again. I'd better start looking for a good shop in Dubai.

    GT3 RS

    Hi all. I just received my GT3 RS. Bought it new and had it for 2 days and have only done 110km in total. I used to drive a 996 TT, with Stage 2 FVD, but this car is quite different - much more raw.... Beautiful to drive and look at. A few questions for you. 1. In neutral without the clutch depressed, there is a rattling noise - does the car have a twin plate clutch? If not, is this normal for any other reason? 2. The car has PCM with navigation - is there any way that I can manually input fixed speed camera locations while driving? I couldn't find such a feature in the manual but hoped that there may be another way. 3. Best way to hook up iPod? 4. The manual was very light on break in or brake bedding. Any tips? I've read the other posts on this site in relation to break in and realise that views are divided between hard and soft break in. However, assuming that I will break it in softly: 4.1. Max RPM? 4,200? 4.2. Use or avoid engine braking? 4.3. After the initial 3,000 km, do I do second and third stages using more revs, say to 6,000 RPM for another 1,000km, and then to 7,000 RPM etc? 4.4. Is brake bedding different for the PCCB? Many thanks for your advice in advance. :)
