Unitah replied to Unitah's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If I go with the original GT3 Club Sport's flywheel and clutch, will I need to reprogram my cars computer at all? Or is it a simple install and drive thing? What about the new GT3RS? Jonathan
Unitah replied to Unitah's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is there any particular clutch, fly wheel combo you recommend? Will the car's computer need to be reprogrammed?
Hey, interesting idea... I need a new engine in my 2002 C4 Cab, RMS failure. Anyway, my mechanic told me, since the car races a full season of DEs and Autocrosses, that I single mass, lightweight racing clutch would definitely improve performance. I was wondering what everyone thinks of this. Has anyone tried one of these? What could the drawbacks be? I would have it installed when the engine is replaced prior to next racing season. Any thoughts??
Loren, What about for a 2002 C4 Cab? I am thinking of upgrading to the New GT3 6 piston cailpers and steel rotors (not the ceramics). I know I will need carriers and the like, but, will I need to replace the master cylinder in a 2002? Also, will the Carrera 4 (not the 4S) require uprated carriers? Or was that only for the C2? Thanks
Unitah replied to antonio_spain's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)X74 is wonderful. I think there are no issues with its use as an everyday suspension, however, it is not made for that. The car (after about a month of settling), dropped about 60 to 70mm, a lot. The lowest part of the car is now only about 2 to 2.5" above the ground, however, in 3 months of driving with the suspension, I have not bottomed out nor hit anything yet. As for performance, hahahaha, there is no comparison. It still isn't nice like a cup car, but, that would be too too much for the street. This is indeed the best compromise. The car is no longer a soft, mushy Cadillac, it is now what it is supposed to be: a race car. In terms of alignment, I am running -1° front and -2.5° back. A friend runs -2°front and -3° back and the car feels even better. Turnin is instant, the car is sticks and sticks and sticks. I love it!!!
Unitah replied to antonio_spain's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2002 C4 Cab running the X74 suspension kit and Pilot Sport Cup tires. I find a cold pressure of 28f/32r very good and balanced for the street. With the cup tires, you want to achieve about 34 to 36 hot. On the track, I have to start way down about 22/24 cold. Now, this was just to give you an idea, I don't know which tires you are running, let me know...
Is your battery mounted inthe center line of the car now, or off to the side??
Got it, great, thanks for the help...
Loren, I got it now!!! Woohoo!!! I understand exactly what you are saying, thanks. I checked all the local costcos and BJ's and all the other wholesale warehouse stores, no one carries this battery in my area. So now, the next challenge is finding the battery, haha.
Kevin, Thanks for all the help, I appreciate it. One more question, where did you find the nice red battery cable. You had said you needed a longer one, where did you get it? Did it come with the battery?
Loren, What do you mean the orange top has reversed connections for the wires? I looked at the article you sent me, it doesn't look like the wires cross with the red-top, so, if I used the orange top, then the wires would cross, right? I think he needed a longer cable because the plate he made didn't mount the battery in the centerline of the car, but offcenter, necessitating a longer passenger side lead. Am I correct with this?? This is very confusing...
Kevin, if you alread installed one in your cab, which model did you put in??
Loren, Specifically, which battery do I need for my car, I think there are quite a few, aren't there? Thanks...
