  1. Hi Chaps, My cars transmission is really quite good, but like most 915’s it had a lot of wiggle in the gear shifter, so I decided to to replace the two bushes in my gear shifter and planned to do the same with the shift coupler. But probably like you I decided to treat myself to the stomski as I’d read good things about it. So changed everything as planned and it felt great, a massive improvement. But for some reason 2nd gear was really tight, it didn’t crunch or anything but very tight to the point of having to use a lot of force to get it in gear. Anyway long story short I tried readjusting/test drive on and off for a week and couldn’t get it where I was happy. So I put new bushes in my old original coupler put it back in, readjusted and it feels pretty much perfect first time. So my gear shift wiggle is now way better than it was but not as tight and direct as it was with the Stomski fitted. Maybe it was just my gearbox or maybe 915’s need a bit of wiggle room, i don’t really know? Anyway hope that helps.
  2. Hi, I have for sale a stomski racing precision shift coupler. Condition is used but as new, less than 2 weeks old it has been fitted and used for approximately 30 miles. £135 Delivered (That approximately a 25% saving on new) cheers James
  3. Cool nice one! .. hope you’re enjoying yours as much as I am mine! I live just outside loughborough - I was thinking of maybe driving to the odd East mids Porsche club meet this summer if they go ahead, I’ve never been to one before but think they meet once a month somewhere Derby way?
  4. Thanks for the advice, funny a lot of what you suggest are the areas I’ve been considering improving. I am planning to take the car to Centre Gravity as they’re not far from me and have them look at the suspension, maybe just refresh all the bushes etc for the time being but see what they suggest about any upgrades to dampers. It’s very unlikely I’ll ever use the car on a track (although I live prob only 4-5 miles from Donington) so a standard set up would suit me fine I would think. I think lowering the car would make it look better but I’ve no idea if it would improve its handling so I’d need advice on that... Ive been looking at the rennshift, I’ve read a lot of positive reviews on it and I’m also pretty confident that’s a little project I can do myself...
  5. Thanks both, I must admit I’m enjoying the SC so far more than any water cooled Porsche I’ve had! I like the fact you can have a good blast without driving it ridiculously fast, and I can’t get enough of that sound! (I was told the exhaust was changed to stainless SSI exhaust system helps in the noise department?!) ..I think it’s pretty awesome!
  6. Cheers thanks chaps 👍 I was looking at your website last night Jonny, really interesting, especially your CDI+. Something else to add to the list!
  7. Great idea about the test run, although I’ve already given a chap the job of sorting the flat lid (I plan to to keep the lid with spoiler too so can chop and change) ...I don’t think I’ve driven at 100mph for more than a few seconds in my life 🤣🤣 I totally agree that the 3.2 whale tail looks way better, I did in fact consider just swapping the whale tail, but I somehow still prefer the flat lid
  8. Cheers 👍 Seems I’m never happier than when I’ve got a hobby/addiction that keeps me permanently skint so this might work out well 😬
  9. Nice! That looks really good, exactly what I’m going to do 👍 Are they 8” rear wheels and has it been lowered a bit too?
  10. I’ve also got a 997.2 c2s manual which tbh is a better car in every way to the SC, but already I find driving the SC much more fun in every way. It probably helps that my daily drive is a LR defender so I’m used to a few rattles and a gear box that can’t be rushed 😂😂
  11. Thanks, I didn’t particularly set out to buy an SC but now I’ve got it I’m not disappointed at all. Have you had yours long? Any advice?
