Default Track-Studs vacation

Just a note...

Anyone interested in buying Track-Studs needs to order before May 16th. We are shutting down shipments from 5/16 until 5/24 ... additionally there will be very intermittent email support until June 4th as yours truly will be carving the Alpine Passes in a rental.

Shipments will also be stopped from June 10th through the 28th. So please plan accordingly!

Default Coming in 2016 - PTFE coated wheel nuts

PTFE coated racing wheel nuts for Porsche ( M14x1.5 / r14 ) ... COMING SOON

** NEW ** PTFE coated Porsche wheel nuts

Our PTFE coated wheel nuts provide a quick release from the socket. No more jammed nuts.
More importantly, you will obtain consistent torque values and provide lubrication to the stud's threads and nut seats.
Your crew will love the easy to locate Hi-Visibility Yellow.

Features:
  • Thinner thread area coating for appropriate "bite" vs. lubrication
  • Eliminates wheel seat galling
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Good release characteristics
  • Corrosion Resistant: Greatly reduces fastener corrosion
  • Abrasion resistant: Will not flake off like cheaper alternatives
Prepared for ACS by one of the leading motorsports coatings firms in the USA.
Fits all Porsche wheels and studs on 911/914/944/964/993/986/996/987 and 997.

Note: Gun settings may have to be adjusted down. The target torque setting does not change (eg: 90-100 lb/ft), however due to the lubricity of the coating, gun settings may need to be adjusted down to prevent the higher socket speed/inertia form "over-torquing" and damaging your studs.

Thanks also to all the experienced RL and Apex for comments. At this time I am looking for more race look for GT3 and more outlaw look for my Weissach. But recently changing a tire on my GT3 even using the provided Porche long stud to hang the wheel, I can see where longer studs for tire changing, cleaning inside of wheels would be worth the low cost of studs and the open nuts for a little weight savings and just good looks.
Appreciate any comments on the use of the "copper nuts" listed by apex was thinking of using them on Weissach with the gold stock Fuchs. Assuming soft material vs steel.
Thanks.

They were copper coated steel, however they are no longer available. The regulations around copper coatings has made them cost prohibitive. Shame really as the copper was great for lubrication and they did look cool on old cars once they took on a patina.

I'm interested in the stud conversion, but what can I do for a wheel lock? I'm using the Porsche factory locking wheel bolt right now.

All the above sound good.
Just avoid titanium.
Sorry for reviving an old thread, but what is wrong with titanium studs?
Strength is more or less identical to steel.

Sidebar, is Apex still open? I've used them in the past but haven't been able to get a hold of them to do a new order.

A shame about all the Rennline Stud horror stories...
