Thought I’d write a quick update on what I have recently heard of the current state of the Porsche 997 Tuners. These, in most cases are respected Porsche tuners, however there seems to be some information (relayed to me) that I thought I might make public aroundtheir performance.I heard some rather interesting and a bit disturbing information on how they develop their tunes and why in most cases they are flawed.
10 MUST DO suspension modifications for the Porsche 997 Turbo that will have a dramatic benefit on handling and bring the all wheel drive super-car as close to as possible to a GT3 track monster.
About a month ago I had the PASM failure light come on my Porsche 997 Turbo, this switched the control unit off essentially turning off all the suspension management systems – as one would expect. I switched the car off, restarted it and everything was fine.
Mind blowing technology, simply staggering numbers – pretty much all I could say after watching Porsche’s Andreas Preuninger (The man behind all of Porsche’s GT cars) elaborate on the technology that went into the 991 Porsche GT3. Among them the fastest gear shifting mechanism in ANY production car on the planet. Les than 100th of a millisecond, together with an updated engine capable of over 9000 rpm range!
Heckler & Koch USA turns an essentially standard MR762A1 7.62 x 51 mm NATO, semi-automatic rifle, into a more effective precision rifle by an astute addition of add-ons that make the MR762A1 Long Rifle Package (LRP) more than a sum of parts.
The U.S. Army is starting to replace the the aging Remington M24 with the XM2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle. At the recent NDIA (National Defense Industry Association) get-together, the storied gunmaker has unleashed its vision for the next generation of precision sniper rifles: the “Modular Sniper Rifle (“MSR”).
These guys test a lot of vehicles and were one of the first to put the Porsche 997 Turbo S through it’s paces. Their test vehicle blew through the 3 second mark and was quickly compared to the Bugatti Veyron when it came to launching from a dig!
