  1. Some nice modern features integrated well. Great work Steve!
  2. I don’t know anyone who has used it but the basic specs look alright to me. I’ve read that we want a minimum of 1600ppm zinc but I’m not sure on what maximum is counterproductive. 2300ppm is up there.
  3. Still available. Have not heard back from the interested parties...
  4. Geez you Melbournites need to stop hogging all the RS Turbos. Share them around with your fellow states. @Ossie - Have Fitzgerald produced five replicas in total now?
  5. Hold on mate. Put the breaks on that one...
  6. Hi Rickie As I understand it, if your car is a later model than those listed above (i.e. S2 or later turbo) then you likely have a 25 spline axle. If you fit the range above you should be a 33 spline axle. I recall your car is an NA 2.5L so ‘should’ be a 33 spline (at least from the factory).
  7. Selling a set of four brand new CV (constant velocity) jointsThese are an upgrade over the OEM joints and have a larger, stronger cage and ball bearingsThey are Empi branded 33 spline inner raceI understand they will suit:- Porsche 924 1977-1982- Porsche 924S 1987-1988- Porsche 944 NA 1983-1989- Porsche 944 Turbo 1986-1987In as new condition. Only selling as I mistakenly ordered these but require a 25 spline version.Happy to post Australia wide$300 for the set of four. Price firm. https://i.imgur.com/U5TIvQH.jpg[/img] https://i.imgur.com/zBYbVa9.jpg[/img] https://i.imgur.com/bTzCiHj.jpg[/img]
  8. Hopefully they will work well with my 944 too. Had to snap them up. Thanks Francois!
  9. Good to hear Porsche have been cleared over the pass. Another one for the trophy cabinet! I agree Matt Campbell drove an amazing last stint with those fresh tyres. The 911 couldn’t match the grunt of the V12 Aston down the straight so he had to get creative with his pass in the twisty section. Awesome to watch! I will be tuning in again next year.
  10. Did anyone watch the race today? This is the first year I’ve properly tuned in and I found it pretty entertaining. Great to see a close battle between so many manufacturers and completely different engineering philosophies and strengths/weaknesses to the cars. How about the winning car and winning driver(s)... 👍
  11. Coolant tank and brake booster housing still available. Prices dropped.
  12. Hi Timm Keen to get in touch with you re the A65 poly but your PM box appears to be full/blocked. Shoot me a message when you get a moment.
  13. Low km's triple the price... I have always loved that gold colour though.
  14. Hi Zacc Will you be indexing the torsion bars yourself? If not then I’d think about the investment to properly setup your new coilovers. I understand it takes several hours to properly index torsion bars. If you delete them I believe you will have greater flexibility and simplicity of adjustment. Could be worth it in the long run. I’d be keen to hear other’s thoughts on how the ride/handling changes with and without torsion bars.
  15. Interesting read Bruce. It wasn't a typo in the below sentence? A 400rpm powerband would be ridiculously difficult to drive around, even at Le Mans with high revs on the long straights! " it had bad turbo lag and only had power between 5,300 RPM & 5,700 RPM ,( was designed to have power from 3,000RPM ) "
  16. I'm running a set of these Carrera 5 spoke wheels on my 944 S2 and they are excellent. Very light too. Highly recommended.
  17. You chasing a set of Cup 1's Jason? Some track wheels for you...
  18. Would be great if you could confirm if it was JMG. How long has yours been installed and I take it yours has been performing well and nice and smooth?
  19. Thanks Port. Can I ask which supplier you bought through? You didn’t have any luck with local driveshaft shops for a rebuild?
  20. That’s good longevity feedback. Thanks Timm. Did you notice any NVH change after you surrounded the stock gearbox mount with A65 poly? Shifting more precise?
  21. Thanks for the recommendation 9fan. 👍 https://www.lindseyracing.com/LR/Porsche/LA-CVLB-085024.html
  22. Thanks for the link Timm. Any driveability or NVH issues with the VW forged CVs? Are they a direct bolt-on to the stock axle setup but are just stronger? I might take you up on the leftover poly (thanks!) What hardness rating did you go and any longevity issues like Tazzie describes above? Will keep you posted re intermediate shaft options. I wonder if somewhere like Universal Driveshaft Services Qld could rebuild it with better bearings..
  23. When you say the poly worked well ‘for a few months’ what happened after that?
  24. Hi all Seeking advice from members on the best supplier for a new or rebuilt RHD steering intermediate shaft (the one with U-joints on each end). My joints appear worn out and I’m getting some steering knocking so looking to replace the shaft. I came across this rebuild service from JMG in the UK and find it interesting that they say RHD shafts suffer more than LHD due to the proximity of the exhaust manifold i.e heat kills the bearings. JMG apparently install higher temp bearings. I need to email them to see if they still provide this service though. https://www.jmgshop.com/rhd-944968924s-steering-shaft---all-models-259-p.asp Any experience or local suppliers you would recommend? I’m also looking to change the clutch on my car shortly so will probably replace or repack the CV axles ‘while I’m in there’. From my research it looks like the OEM GKN axles are the best new replacement short of the beefier Lindsey Racing items (which are pricey and I doubt I would need unless I was to turbo the S2 at a later date). https://www.paragon-products.com/Axle-Assembly-p/pp951.332.038.02.htm https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/porsche-axle-shaft-assembly-gkn-95133203806 Again I’m seeking any first hand experience on whether new GKN axles or repacking my existing axles (including workshop labour) is the way to go? I have read that the polyurethane gearbox mount mod does a decent job of preserving CV axles. I have no problems with my current axles but am curious if any members have performed this mod? https://rennlist.com/forums/944-turbo-and-turbo-s-forum/728661-any-diy-for-the-transmission-mount-3.html
