More B&M troubles

Recommended Posts

Guys I saw a related post on another board, made me think about my little problem.

I had my B&M adjusted perfectly, I used the Porsche special tool to setup the cables on the stock shifter then carefully marked them and re-installed the B&M. It seemed to make a big difference on daily driving , no more clunking into 1st, just nice smooth and short gear changes. The new cable positions were actually a few threads off the OEM placement as we noted on the initial installation.

Everything seemed great, I took the car to the track a couple of weeks ago and it felt fantastic, nice crisp short gear changes. In fact, I commented how perfect the car now felt with the short shifter. Then on the last afternoon of the DE , 3rd and 4th run sessions were run fairly close together, far less than usual down time. This is a normal occurance at the track as everyone wants to finish up and go home. By the end of the third session I hit a gate upshifting 2-3 and it took a couple of attempts to engage the gear. I thought nothing of it. Then on the last run session, the same thing happened at least twice on 3-2 donwshifts and 2-3 upshifts. The car had to be forced into gear.:(

This is really a PITA on a high speed track out at 7000 rpm!

I guess some adjustment problem???? I don't know. I put the stock shifter back until I can come up with a reliable solution for track use. Again this only happens at the track during "extreme" usage.

I'm hoping it's something simple too. It really is a fine shifter.

FWIW I have over 30 track days on my 996, the last 4 with the B&M. I have never had any trouble with the stock shifter, but 2 out of 4 days with the B&M I have run into this gate thing...no pun intended :jump: .
