Apparently it means you aren't one of the 510 who potentially "drive in an unusually agressive manner"

Seriously, who writes these things @Porsche?
Lawyers I suppose...

It is kinda hilarious that they make the usual disclaimers about track use and recall 510 specific VINs...

If that were even possible, they would slap 2011 parts on all and call it a day! They will all be redone over the course of 2013 to reset and then the "maintenance schedule" will be implemented shifting the responsibility for further changes to the owner.

Still can't understand what a narrow body car is doing to the hubs that a wide body isn't? Don't get that!!
Only difference is wheel offset Or parts (hubs) manufactured before the process was perfected. The GT3's came out before the RS's.

^ Some rumors about a targeted recall for specific hubs, emerged.
Now, and if true, all we have to do is compare it with the actual list of known failures.

The phrase "unusually aggressive manner" is probably a 500 page long fine print summary(long version 1500 pages) by PAG's lawyers(sorry VW) that explains "you're f$$$ked". Mike

even with Mooty's understeer problems I can't hang with him - man he's fast! hmmmm - maybe it's because he's running porsche OEM center locks - perhaps I should move back to them now that I understand not to use them "aggressively" - that was my whole problem before - I was aggressive, but now I'll be nice to them and they won't fail at a 140 mph in a corner....

I'm soooo glad porsche cleared that up for me.

That!! You forgot to mention exposure to unusually aggressive weather which includes, among other things, mild breeze and light rain.

At least PAG's doing something to address a long-running problem. The manner in which they attempt to firewall the issue and deflect blame to customers is despicable nevertheless.

My shrink told me I've shown no relapse of aggressive behavior since doubling my valium dosage. Apparently PAG thinks otherwise--I'm not just aggressive, but "UNUSUALLY AGGRESSIVE"

aggressive brake pads might trigger the failure?

I'm sure more info will pop up regarding this, but probably not until the January release. So until then, drive careful and be safe.

"Unusually Aggressive" > "Flat Out". Mike

Chris Harris Question: Single stud wheels are a problem, will you stop providing them?

Porsche R&D Chief Answer: "We will continue with that. I know with the GT3 we had to modify the torque rating and we changed to new nuts with 600Nm, and if you run the car on the race track, you will eventually have to change the hubs every 15,000km."
But people forget and then you have problems.


Check yer nuts: safe if used properly he says"But if you use them properly, it works. We will continue to provide this system."

-----

so we have a recommended replacement schedule now. Everyone set aside 11 hours of labor, wheel bearing and replacement hubs - change those puppies every 15,000 km/10,000 miles

I note he didn't restrict this advice to the 2010 GT3's only.

"UAD" = Unusually Aggressive Drover / Driving

"...did you see that? He went UAD."

I am assuming that the 510 are most likely part of a particular manufacture date range?

would be good to see which cars are effected once the recall starts to roll out...
