Who cares if they want you for your money. That exotic should be netting you all kinds of trim!

Also, just a FYI, the radiator from Porsche was an AKG unit. AKG stamped right in the tank. So if Hella did make them originally for the 997 the supplier of them for Porsche now is AKG.
Ah, ok. Makes sense that they would be very similar to mine. I bet you can find AKG units for around $300 too.

Talk about a huge un-boxing disappointment. $1200 and there is nothing shiny, nothing of significant weight, no fancy packaging, nothing. Such a disappointment. They could at least include a t-shirt that says I spent big money and all I got was a pound of plastic and this t-shirt.

But I know this little unit and 5 minutes of installing it transforms the suspension from a passive to an active suspension. As well as gives the shocks a larger window of adjustment in both Sport and standard modes. Should ride much nicer as well as help stiffen the shocks as it sees acceleration, braking, and lateral movement. I'm excited to test it out.

The car will also have new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires on it in a day or two. The car should ride and handle much better than the Extreme Contacts that are on it. That will complete the first round os suspension mods. Round two will come in a month or two.

Curious about this too as I am about the pull the trigger on the ExtremeContact Sports. From what I've read they are equal to the Pilot Super Sports, but slot below the P4S. Is the P4S 30% grippier to offset the cost difference, I doubt it.

They have huge support from the Porsche community. Like 99% of them say this is the best suspension modification to these cars. They logarithm seems to be set up very well for them. No reliability issues either. I think they have 911 race cars and street cars. Which means they tweak them a lot. They owner and some of the engineers are on the forums as well. So they are happy to help customers. They will also tweak the software when you are at the same track days as them. So customer support seems to be there as well.

My buddy Eric has their Tractive DDA coil overs & shocks. He has a pretty heavy spring rate. But because of the DSC controller uses like 90% of the available shock tune range, versus like 60% in some factory modes, so you can get away with a heavier spring but still have a comfortable ride. But then have lots of spring rate and shock stiffness when needed. We did a rally in his car and it was very comfortable. I'd say nicer than my car.

What issues do the Shelby guys have?


I get my tires through Suburban Tire in Glendale heights. They basically match the cheapest price I can find on the tires. Then charge me that price. But it includes mounting and "road force" balancing. So isn't a bad deal. As that is usually $125-$160 depending on the tire size.

I have done some work for sure. haha But other than the engine out service and winter, I have been driving it a lot. I have used it quite a lot this year already. Out of storage early, passed emissions, and just enjoying it. Be it to work, the store, and so on.

But yes, many mods since I have had it. I mean I have only been dreaming of buying on and modding it for many many years. lol

The DSC controller has caught my eye too as it will work with the RS and do the same.

But they also offer a full kit the includes a full mag ride setup using their own shock design.

The Tractive coil over & shock set up in my buddies car is impressive when matched with the DSC controller.




You guys have to remember that my car is 12 years old. These newer car have active suspensions from the factory. Mine is a passive suspension. So this controller makes the suspension control leaps and bounds better than it is from the factory in my application.

Nope. Just explaining. Especially since the RS is pretty capable stock the changes might not be as noticeable. Which might make someone not as confident in their expensive purchase.

Trust me, I don't need approval or acceptance on my purchases. I do them for myself. haha

The few guys I go with still have their cars down. So we will miss the May 6th day. But we are doing Road America and the Autobahn this year. Hopefully Blackhawk a time or two as well. I bought the car with the intention of going to the track with it. That is why I went this route versus a Hellcat or something drag oriented.

After the Tail of the Dragon trips and the Autobahn, I am ruined. I am all about that twisty life. haha I just wished I lived in an area that had curvy roads. And because we live in the land of straight roads, I like that I can still pull on them supercharged coyotes and vettes running around here.

I am excited for Road America. And scared. haha That is a long back straight.

I always forget about Putman. We want to try different tracks. Hopefully next year we can do VIR and/or Circuit of the Americas.

A ZL1 on track has to be a blast. I would approve. lol

There are a ton of comments saying he needed to update the firmware and file. Including DSC Sport themselves.

It does not seem like the dude posted any follow up comments. I didn't have time to look through all his videos at lunch. I doubt he did a follow up video. Since most of his videos are about parts and detailing videos. Dat advertising money.





My guess the DSC is probably just as good in the GT350 than any other car. But I have not researched it at all. So maybe you can send more links or show posts where guys share issues?

The roads are not filled with potholes. Just smoooooth roads usually. Then the twists, turns, elevation changes, and scenery are incredible. I'd love to move down there for the roads and scenery alone. lol

The 991 Turbo S is just an all-around badass car. So capable. I have never heard of Gratten Raceway. I'll have to check that out. I'm not afraid to travel. lol
