TPC DSC has transformed my stock suspension Turbo!

Big thanks to TPC racing for their DSC module. Up until this point I've left the suspension alone, but have never been satisfied with it. I didn't want to go lower for ride height issues, and had delayed pulling the trigger on a full system due to the cost and fear of a jarring ride.

Earlier today I installed the DSC module and wow! The car drives like I'd expect it to, it corners predictably now, and bumps in high speed corners don't upset it like it used to. On the freeway it doesn't bounce up and down in the front in normal mode when hitting undulations in the road like it used to and it isn't jittery like it used to be in sport mode. The handling seems so much more predictable which gives me confidence to push the car significantly harder than I previously felt comfortable doing.

My father recently got an R8 V10 and I was always envious of the great feel on the street in corners of that car...but no longer.

Thanks TPC for putting out a great product without sacrificing ride quality or ride height!

I have the stage 3 suspension and added the box. Really significant improvement in drivability w/out any loss in balance or performance.

Glad to hear.

I have the TPC DSC, full RSS kit and Bilstein B16 club sports and the module has transformed the handling for the better.

Wish I bought it a year ago.

It seems like this mainly a 997.1 upgrade based on feedback. What if any are the benefits for a 997.2?

Very glad to hear that everyone is enjoying the DSC upgrade!

In regards to .2 cars, the DSC makes the same changes as it does on a .1 car.

So does this mean that the 997.2 no longer has an advantage suspension wise?

The .2 still has advantages. The spring rate on a stock .2 car is stiffer than a .1 and also the .2 factory sway bars are stiffer as well. DSC will still improve the chassis on both .1 and .2 cars.

So how would a 997.1 with the DSC module compare to a stock 997.2?

If you drove one car with DSC and one without, you will notice the ride quality is different and the suspension response is not there with the car that does not have DSC.

DSC is controlling the shocks and the dampening rate. It works the same in both a .1 and .2 car. It will change the ride quality of the car, making for a nicer ride and also absorbing the bumps in the road. While doing this though, you will also have more stability in the corner, under braking and acceleration. The accelerometer in your car is telling the computer where it needs to control the shocks so there will also be less roll.

As I mentioned with the 997.2 having stiffer springs and heavier bar, there will be less roll than a .1 car and with stiffer springs means a slightly stiffer ride which the DSC will calm down and make nicer. The DSC compliments both the .1 and .2 very well.

Do any 997.2 TT owners have the DSC in the NJ/NY/Phila metro area?

I'm interested in purchasing the DSC, but it would be great to get a ride in a car that has it locally first.
