Evening chaps do any of you know what the difference is between the older three setting vs newer two setting DSM unit as I might be able to get my hands on a second hand three setting unit but want to know if there is much difference and if I should pay more for the newer one? Thanks in advance Thumb

DSM are a contractor that myself and Finn use on our projects but I certainly would not let them anywhere near a DSC module Wink

On the gen1 except the turbo you will need the 3 axis accelerometer unit as well , they are £250 unless the preloved one your looking at already comes with one.
if it does and its cheaper than the DSC on its own new then well worth considering.

Heres an article worth reading it describes the 3 mode one a intuitive but the two mode one telepathic .

https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/997-turbo-gt2/356419-tpc-s-dsc-quick-review.html

heres an article of the three mode one fitted to a cayman

http://www.planet-9.com/reviews/cayman-performance-modifications/p498-tpc-racing-dsc-suspension.html

either option is going to be a big improvement on your existing OE pasm controller.

thanks Phil the one I am looking at comes with the accelerometer as well for about $1000 so about £730 all in. Do you think I should hang on for the newer one though, the reviews of both are good but is the newer one that much better?

Finn will only have restless nights if he takes the decision to fit the inferior product.

I havent tried the 3 mode one mate so cant compare really , the two mode one I really like, but £700ish inc the accelerometer is very tempting as you would still need the acceloroteter if you brought the new two mode one ,and then its starting to get quite expensive.

I guess that the fact they modifled the 3 mode to a 2 mode would mean in theory they feel the newer unit is better , but I honestly cant advise you on that Thumb

Floor Floor I know, which was why I was very careful with my answer to him Grin Grin I tried to think what I would do £730 for the 3 mode inc accl or £1300 for the new one inc accl. my gut feeling is I personally would spend the extra £500 or wait until a used 2 mode came along which is probably actually what I would do, I was happy to spend the £900 odd in the group buy but dont think I would have spent much more and as luck went picked up a used 2 mode and saved a few hundred quid.

I think thats the right call mate, and I might even get some redress on here for NOT encouraging you to spend money on mods Grin Grin Grin

It’s the same bit of hardware. The mode change was a firmware update. Thumb

I just knew you would ask that mate Grin Grin I know they are customisable but if or whether they would put the two mode newer firmware on it is a very good question if they will it could be the perfect fix Thumb I know in the threads about it guys were saying that they were being sent via laptop custom race upgrades that were track condition specific so data can be uploaded its just whether they would do the two mode for you , maybe an email to ask them.
