Default Do I Need a DSC Controller?

I may eventually and occasionally track my TTS. I have an opportunity to buy a DSC for a lot less then retail. Do I really need it? My TTS spends a lot of time in my garage and only escapes on nice days. Will I notice any difference during normal non-sport driving? I've read a lot of good reports about them and those who own one like it, but they also track their cars. Your thoughts please?

I was a skeptic but now a convert. Even for strictly street driven car it is a very nice upgrade. Settles the suspension down quite a bit and help with handling of mid corner bumps/rough roads. More controlled and comfortable then stock.

4ocious, I have one on order which I plan to install along with my exhaust when it comes in. Like you, I plan to do an occasional track day and figured this was a safe mod that seems highly recommended. I'll be paying full retail though!

Watch the parts for sale and member classifieds. I've always had good luck there and it's nice to deal with Porsche people. I'll post my impressions once my DSC is installed. I "hope" it makes the difference I've heard and read about. Next on the list are new PS4's and a Cobb PDK flash. I'm also considering an ECU flash and an exhaust. Time and available spendable $$$$ will tell.

BTW I'm jealous of your 11 6MT TT! Great choice and a real keeper.

I've got a new one sitting on a garage shelf and am anxiously waiting until springtime when I can get the car out of winter storage to do a proper before and after comparison.

I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised with the results.

They seem to sell quick in the classifieds, a testament to their popularity! I would see them pop up for sale periodically when I wasn't really looking to buy one. In any case, the new price is not too bad all things considered and over time, it'll hopefully be worth it. It'll also be good to sit down with the shop owner (who sets up race Porsches) to discuss optimal settings for nearby roads and tracks so I don't mind giving him the business and he won't charge me to install. Thanks for the compliments on the car, I love it as well. I traded my 991.1 TTS for it. But I also envy speed yellow, one of my favs and love seeing your avatar!

Quick in the classifieds, that’s what I find confusing. I don’t see Europipes in the classifieds, Dension, or other proven aftermarket parts. No thanks, skipping the DSC hype. If it was that good people wouldn’t be selling them often.

I’ve seen all of the above sell quickly in the classifieds. I bought DSC and DEnsion new during promo and group buy.
