IMS Pro

Having it installed today...I know they are still in low numbers installed, but sounds like it is the next bug thing...on my 996!

Where are you getting it done? I am looking for a shop to help me with a performance alignment that knows Porsches and can help me Max out my stock camber and other settings for HPDE, and then ultimately to help me with GT3 arms or whatever the parts are I need when it is time to take it to the next level.

I have got a line on a good shop in Fernandina Beach but hoping to find closer (I am in Lake City, West of Jax on I-10/I-75.

The car is in CT, so getting it done before it gets here at Hairy Dogs Garage. Here in Jax, I only take my stuff to Seth Agnew who owns Technical Dimensions. He is all things Porsche, Audi etc. he has worked on both my 986, doing IMS, AOS, blah, blah blah and I have done about 10k worth of stuff on my 89 951 Turbo...his shop is off of Beach Blvd heading toward Jax Beach. Great guys...tell them Todd with the red 951 Turbo sent you!

Amount installed means nothing… The bearing thats used is simply a European width version of the same classic dual row bearing that we've been installing since 2007. The difference is the locking method on the outer diameter and they delivery of the bearing into the shaft using my Faultless Tool.

On top of that, the majority of the last 3 years found that technology in constant development- we don't just make something work once and throw it on the market- thats what those band wagon guys do who copy our achievements.

Jake - simply stating what others are saying and hoping to help get those numbers up! I talked to you the other day on the phone about it. I am actually having it installed in CT where I bought the car because they have done these and i dont believe my local mechanic has. As well, i didnt have time to wait yet another week after getting the car! My local mechanic has done one of my single row before in my 986 and it was fine (he has done a ron of others), but I chose to do this one because of my homework. So, not doing it nervously...I chose this route. Hairy Dog Garage in CT is doing mine. My car gets shipped to me next week and looking forward to a crap ton of miles ahead!

Thanks for all you do...
