Porsche Competition Transmission Service and UpgradesTransmission technology has gotten supremely sophisticated in the last decade. Porsche’s dual-clutch PDK shifts far faster than the best driver with a manual. But with that performance comes complexity. Fortunately, our Speedsport Tuning Competition Department technicians know how to both optimize and maintain your manual or dual-clutch transmission for maximum track performance. In addition to regular maintenance, we offer a variety of services to help you achieve more engagement on the track and lower your lap times including differential changes, short shifters, sequential shifters, paddle shifter conversions and transmission coolers. Contact us at 203 730-0311 for all your Porsche Competition and Trackside needs.
Porsche Competition Tires and WheelsEveryone knows how important tires are in regards to performance in a street car. But when it comes to track driving, proper tire selection is even more critical. We’ll help you select the correct tires for your car, and mount them up on dedicated wheels. Having an extra set of wheels for your track days pays multiple benefits: it keeps your stock wheels clean and undamaged, you can go with lighter weight wheels which reduce unsprung weight, and you may want to go with a smaller diameter wheel with taller sidewalls which open up more options for track-focused tires.

Porsche Competition Data Collection Equipment and InstallationGetting the best out of your car and yourself requires data. You need to know what’s going on at every point on each lap to determine where improvements can be made. At Speedsport Tuning, our technicians can add a data acquisition system to your car to give you all the feedback you need. At track events, we can analyze the data with you after each session and use the information to make adjustments in the car’s set-up to fit your driving style, or show you where you are braking too early or not hard enough, or not using all of the car’s potential. All of this leads to improved performance and lower lap times.Contact us at 203 730-0311 for all your Porsche Competition and Trackside needs.
