Hi flickroll.

After much deliberation, I have kept my build spec without adding the PCCBs, but I really appreciate the feedback and information from yourself & others.

I eventually decided to keep the spec for the Carrera T relatively simple.

Hopefully I won't regret my decision.

Cheers,

Simon

Without a doubt, yes. Seems to go perfectly with the spirit of the T. If I were smart, I'd buy a T and be done. If only they had the option to throw in the old .1 motor.

Just kidding. You're going to love the car. Will be interesting to hear your feedback on the standard brakes with time.

Best,

Pete

Cheers, bluehorseshoe!

All that I need to do now is to wait for my Racing Yellow T to arrive! Hopefully less than 3 months to go...

Ha ha! Thanks, Pete!

Well, I expect that the standard brakes may be a slight upgrade on the ones I had on my 991.1 C2, even if they are not the brakes from the 991.1 C2S.

Cheers,

Simon

I have the standard steel brakes on my 991.2 GTS and have no brake dust.

Satin wheels. If you can't see it, isn't there.

For a small upcharge, you can configure your yellow T with black satin wheels. Will hide the dust.

Simon, it’s going to be an awesome car and with the stock brakes you’ll be fine and will love the car. For the life of me I cannot figure why Porsche decided to go with 410mm rotors. 390-400 would have been just fine and the caliper/wheel interference issue would not have been a problem. Go figure.

Just be ready, as the torque is going to be a huge upgrade over your 991.1 C2S—especially when counted from corner-exit rpm all the way to torque peak.

The .2 is a whole new ball game, wrapped up in the same great car. I'll be very curious to hear your thoughts on the chassis, engine, shifter, etc.

Congratulations!

Ordered a yellow T as well and tick the PCCB. March or April delivery in Sydney I think, can't wait!

Nearly same spec as yours, wish I can get something exclusive

HI Simon - What was the reason for going with standard brakes after all?

When driving on the mtn roads or when on track, i can feel it. Steering response as well... like i said i can write a book. Just do it

Yep OP get the PCCBs, outside of the aforementioned positives... it just belongs on the T.
Cheers!

edit... Oops just say you already decided against the PCCBs.
It'll be a great car regardless, now the wait begins, good luck with that

Thanks, BlueNorther. I really like the Titanium Grey wheels on the T, so I'll see how I go with those... I could always get the wheels refurbed at a later date in a satin finish if needed.

Cheers,

Thanks, flickroll. I agree. Maybe it's the 'bigger is better' philosophy, with regard to the 410mm front discs?!

Thanks, Pete. Very excited!! I look forward to posting my early impressions on here when my new baby arrives!

Congrats to you too!

With the 992 not too far away, I am hoping that the 911 T will be a fairly rare beast! And clearly, Racing Yellow is the best colour!
