    981 DIY Discussion
    I had a local, but respected, racing shop install some caliper studs on my 14BS. They say they are made by Giro but I cannot find any listing from Giro (I did send them a question). Not wanting a repeat of what caused the stud installation (stripped caliper bolt), I am concerned about the...
  2. 718 GT4... Will PDK be Offered?

    718 Chat
    Putting aside the argument for PDK vs manual. I love both and have owned and tracked both. I simply prefer PDK for the track.
