    Is it a sign

    Hold on mate. Put the breaks on that one...
  3. 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).

    Hopefully they will work well with my 944 too. Had to snap them up. Thanks Francois!

    Bathurst 12 hour 2019

    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)... 👍

    Bathurst 12 hour 2019

    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.

    944 intermediate shaft and CV axles

    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.
  10. 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

    944 sale price

    Low km's triple the price... I have always loved that gold colour though.

    944/968 Coilovers interchangeable?

    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.

    Front Engine'd Porsche's at Le Mans ( 1981 )

    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 ) "
  14. I'm running a set of these Carrera 5 spoke wheels on my 944 S2 and they are excellent. Very light too. Highly recommended.
  15. You chasing a set of Cup 1's Jason? Some track wheels for you...

    944 intermediate shaft and CV axles

    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?

    944 intermediate shaft and CV axles

    Thanks Port. Can I ask which supplier you bought through? You didn’t have any luck with local driveshaft shops for a rebuild?

    944 intermediate shaft and CV axles

    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?

    944 intermediate shaft and CV axles

    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..

    When you say the poly worked well ‘for a few months’ what happened after that?

    The Oil Thread

    Hi all Looking to do an oil change on my S2 in the not too distant future and wanted to get some recommendations on oil. I know these cars need a good amount of ZDDP and the correct viscosity rating. With blends constantly changing and different offerings available in different countries I wanted to get some current aussie recommendations on products readily available here. My car is primarily a street car and I don't tend to put many km's on (maybe 5k km every 12 months). Some recommendations I've spotted on Rennlist and Pelican Parts: Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil 20w50 (there seems to be a silver conventional bottle and a black synthetic version?) https://www.autobarn.com.au/valvoline-vr1-racing-10w-40-oa01234 Nulon Street and Track oil 25w60 (is this appropriate for a street car?) https://www.autobarn.com.au/nulon-25w-60-street-track-engine-motor-oil-st25w60-5 While we're on the topic, what oil is everyone running in their gearbox/diff? I understand the front engined cars use brass synchros. Recommendations welcome. Redline MT-90 75w90 GL-4? https://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=46
  23. Looking very slick floorprawn. Can’t beat a guards red 944!

    Where to buy 944 parts

    Are you sure FCP add GST? I just added some items to my online cart to check and it showed $0 tax when shipping to Australia...

    Where to buy 944 parts

    From my brief research of the GST changes it appears it is up to the individual company on whether they will specifically charge the GST amount (e.g. Ebay certainly do as Rob pointed out) or absorb it in their retail price and remit the amount back to the ATO at a later date. I suspect this will have some ‘teething/enforcement’ issues initially. I was a guinea pig for a recent overseas purchase and can advise no specific GST amount was charged.
