which Porsche 993 - 996 - 997 Carrera & Turbo driver knows this phenomenon?
You drive your Porsche 911 Carrera or Turbo on the Autobahn and have the feeling that the rear of the vehicle moves back and forth like a lamb's tail in long curves and when changing lanes or in ruts.
You get an uncomfortable driving feeling every time and drive unsafe.
Many #specialists give you well-intentioned advice on what to do. The consultation usually ends in a new chassis or a composition of chassis, lowering and particularly thick stabilizers.
And if that doesn't eliminate the shortage, then polyurethane will also do the trick
or Unibal joints installed, according to the scheme: "MUCH HELPS MUCH"!
But is that really what our Porsche is about?
helps a better and safer driving behavior?
Of course not !
Except for the advantage that you can now run over cigarette butts
as variants with or without a filter, has that whole action brought exactly "nothing"!
But what is to be done now?
The problem described results from the decoupling
the subframe on the rear axles of Porsche vehicles.
This decoupling of the subframe is carried out at the factory in order to help normal Porsche road vehicles to drive more homogeneously and quietly. Elastic rubber sleeves and selenium rubber blocks are used to ban mechanical resonances and vibrations from the interior of the vehicle.
The subframes are attached elastically to the #bodywork. These can now easily move back and forth due to their elasticity. As a result, in addition to minimizing noise, this leads to spongy driving behavior.
If we now remove this decoupling using our components, you will hear marginally higher driving noises, you may also hear the transmission and the engine very quietly in the interior, but the road holding improves blatantly because the subframe of your Porsche is now a fixed unit connected to the body and chassis.
This is also the case with the Porsche GT3 and GT2 and Cup vehicles ex works.
As a small side effect, we have been observing a noticeably lower one for years
Tire wear and a much better handling of our Porsche.
This is particularly noticeable for our sports drivers who go back and forth
drive to the mountains for track days or sporting events to get there
to make your rounds.
We have been installing these #decouplings for #decades with great success.
It may be that some #readers of this article have a completely different #opinion,
because you had an expensive chassis installed, and now with the handling
are satisfied, that may be.
Ultimately, however, the trigger for the topic described is not eliminated, but
only its effects have been somewhat compensated and alleviated.
Even if you ask us: "If we would recommend you a #sports suspension" then it is
the first question always:
"What should the car do after installing a new one
chassis can do what he can't do now"?
We recommend our customers who want a sportier ride, but not on
want to drive on racetracks and still retain a certain degree of residual comfort
therefore want the following:
- A lowering kit from Eibach - H&R etc. up to a maximum of -30 mm
- A decoupling kit for the subframe with installation.
- An adjustable stabilizer variant according to our recommendation.
- An adjusted axis setting according to our recommendation.
After these measures, we wish you a lot of driving pleasure, especially in long ones
curves on the highway. We guarantee 100% execution of the work.
If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.
