Karsten, thanks again for the spring. It, along with the bushing replacement has made shifting feel terrific!

Karsten, your spring is exactly what the car needed. Dealer maintained, the simple easy installation of your enhancement is sure magic. My set up is very smooth and now it is spot on referenced to 3/4 neutral line. Thanks so much and the other members for their excellent recommendations!

do it!
and moneywise its obvious:
~ €40,- the Karsten-Spring
~ €500,- the WEVO shifter

sure, you can't really compare, but there's nothing in between

Hi Karsten,

I am new to the pelican community and this forum, just purchased a 86 targa. (my 3rd 911, the 2 previous were new ones).
I'd like to buy your spring, but I can't find out how to send you an email or PM.
Can you or anyone help?

Alexander

Hi Tony,

Thanks for your help - and glad that the spring arrived, let me know if you have questions regarding the installation.

One more thing - if anyone wants to reach out to me via email, it is actually "holdorf@hotmail.com"

Stay safe out there
Karsten

Thanks, Karsten - just got my spring. Looking forward to installing it - and using it! Thank you for doing this - I think it's a great feature of this 911 community that when someone thinks of a great idea, they're willing to share it with everyone else.

Hi Pete,

Thanks - let me know if you have questions with the installation. And agreed, this forum is a great place to share knowledge - it's more inspirational than any book I have about Porsche!

Stay safe
Karsten
