Just politely say "Honey we need to spend a little more cash on the car for safety reasons, it'll be worth it in the long run"
I'm sure Mrs Manthey will understand. Smile Smile

Don't mention the bit about a Tart, it could all go wrong quickly Wink Smile

Or do you mean an extra 9k? 6k for the PCCBs, then an extra 3k for the steels to replace them once it leaves the showroom? Confused

Tart alert! Wink

Hi Glenn, I'm sure Maxine will understand although you might have to agree to some thing of similar 'feminine' worth. Leave it a few weeks and say 'do you remember me saying to you......'

Glen,

realy surprised at this, as they really dont last, and after a few track days and 10k miles i forsee a thread,

"Wish I hadnt speced PCCB's"

hope it works for you, however very rare to hear anyone big them up.

Glenn,
Olaf himself has little confidence in them and he replaces them after every race on the 997Cup cars... Confused
If your car were just used for the road (a la your TT), then sure they might make sense... but on the track? I'm not so sure as this is precisely the conditions when they are prone to failure...

And Chris is right, yellow doesn't go with the orange! Wink

Your choice, but good luck with'em! Smile

Ade,



I hear you, but i for some reason, think Porsche will have done a lot more homework.

Are you sure manthey are using the latest Gen of PCCB ????

I think the fact that they will be 380mm, should put them under less stress, and should help with cooling etc..

Thing is, i would end up changing the OEM steel ones afetr very few days anyway, so that's 2k + for Alcons etc......

Keep the faith baby......

Didn't everyone think the same of Porsche when they released the PCCBs, first the gen 1 then the gen 2s... both types have since proven to be prone to failure. The cars Manthey are changing the PCCBs on are the 997 cars driven by the works drivers... not the private teams (who mostly run steels). So yes, they have access to the latest equipment I believe... Maybe worth having a chat with Steve McH who has been in contact with Manthey? Maybe Manthey are changing them for new ones *just because they can*? But this would seem to be a colossal waste of money if so... and it certainly doesn't appear to be a vote of confidence for the technology (yet!)...
