Maybe its just me. Drove the 981 today with PDK.. Everytime I made a hard right or left turn my hand hit the shifters and the transmission either shifted up or down. Since the shifters are integrated into the steering wheel and I steer at the 9 and 3 position, the shifters are constantly being pressed. I have driven the 987.2 on the track and never had this problem. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Mike

Gets the Sports wheel -----> problem averted!!

I find the shifters on the multifunction wheel to be more of a problem!!!

I did the same during a test drive; which is why I ordered the SD wheel with paddles.

you can buy the sport steering option with paddle from suncoast for the price of those Techart shifters:)
but then if you want to keep your multifunction steering wheel the techart option might be the best bet.. I lot of people did this with their TT,Panamera and cayennes

Which will disengage the shift buttons on the wheel???
The information I have from Techart is:

I specifically asked if the original block shifters would be still functional and was advised they would no longer function and blank covers fitted.

I will advise and post pictures once mine is delivered and installed.

Ah, not as such. But I did consider sending them to DB-Carbon first to have them carbonated. :taunt:

Interesting thread on Rennlist re: the TechArt paddles. I'd assume these are the same ones that are sold for the 981. Any other opinions re: their quality, fit/finish, and installation difficulty?

Looks like the price is in the $900 range, which does sound a bit steep for "a few pieces of plastic," as the guy in the other thread put it. That's a down payment on a really nice 3D printer. :)

I think the problem would be solved with a little option somewhere that says "disable steering wheel button shifters".......that I turn on and off at my discretion.

The other thing that might make sense is to set up the left button to perform upshifts when pressed from behind. Then they would work more like paddles. In conjunction with disabling the push-from-front functionality, that might eliminate a lot of the unwanted shifts people are making.

Does anyone know how to access the wiring harnesses that go to the buttons?

I believe this can be done in PIWIS.

Yes, see my thread on the Techart paddle install.
