First of all
ROB- no it's not the roll bar.
Yes it's a part we all need and when we announce I'll tell the full story behind these, as it wasn't as simple as we originally thought.

A few of you are have seen these, you know what I'm talking about.

Any guesses from the masses?

Quotes that may apply at 914 Rubber

Thomas Edison quotes:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

————————————————-
There’s been try’s before, and lots of talk/noise lately.
My hope is a roof, with a new name? But since “we all need these” not sure.

A time machine so I can go back to 1974 and buy that silver 914-6 with option code 471 I test drove at Triangle Porsche / Audi in Durham, NC

And if I can have a two-fer, go back to 1979 and NOT sell my 1966 911 that I drove for 7 years. (Bought it for $3000, sold it for $4000 and could not believe how lucky I was, LOL nobody drives a car for 7 years and sells it at a 30% premium).

You don't think this has market potential? Duh, we've seen fiberglass and carbon for decades now. But there are people who want bumpers that are lightweight and less expensive than fiberglass. Vacuum mold (or what Mark knows what to do right) is a POP verses a layup. Bang, out the door to a huge market.

Porsche has these (repops) in stock. I bought some from Sierra Madre. Passenger side fit well, drivers side fit terrible. I tried a couple before I gave up and got a refund. The drivers side all have an incorrect curve. It causes the ends (the ones that usually have a screw hole) to sit at an angle instead of a straight line that runs from the mesh engine grill caps.

I’m voting backpad...already foamed and covered. But I’d take the roll bar trim!!!

Actually looked at these.
The preliminary plan was to use Kevlar, it is actually more resilient than carbon fiber, but we do have the capability to do carbon fiber.

Will officially announce this weekend but love the guesses, some of them are stuff we have in the works. I'd bet no one would see this one coming.

No, the tooling is complete now. The only problem we have is the buffiing. each top takes about 8 hrs of cleaning and buffing. Going into the holidays not the direction we can go. Expect movement on these in January. Unfortunately the costs will be going up a little, but then next gen ones are more dialed in.

Been wishing for these ever since looking at some of the trick trailing arms for 911s—something that adds adjustability, space for more tire in the inside, and takes into account most 914s that are candidates are running 0.5-2.0 inches lower than stock.

When I think about the cost of Chris' (very attractive) pickup point relocation kit...and all of the 914 race cars out there...there's a fair bit of latitude for pricing. And unsprung weight is always something nice to get rid of.

Posted by: Mikey914 Nov 8 2019, 12:37 PM

The 951s did a casting for the front control arms. We are doing some work now with a suspension package. The springs we made a a 1st step toward this.
You’ll see more on that soon. Some cool stuff going on there, but that’s not it.

What the h3ll would the OBD2 plug connect to? There are no OBD1 compatible computers on a stock 914, much less OBD2. Unless you are running Motronic on your 914, or something like a Subaru or V-8 engine, there is nothing that runs OBD1 or 2.

Intermittent wipers?

Posted by: Mikey914 Nov 9 2019, 07:27 PM

We completely redesigned the relays to be more dependable and last much longer that those that are currently on the market. Originally these were to be solid state. Two things changed that.

First, in actual testing (yes we really do that) we found the thermal gain unacceptable, and know that we couldn't in good conscious sell that product. Yes they worked, but we were not comfortable putting them on the market as they didn't test well.

Second, we came up with a better design that the engineering suggests will last at least 200,000 cycles.

We are in the process of determining the actual failure point. As you can see from the video

https://youtu.be/PfVR3P-eaFg

This will be running in the shop until failure.

There was another company that shal remain nameless that released relays into the market that had very high failure rates. My brother actually bought some and found 2 of the 5 he bought were bad righ out of the box.

Thant and initially they were cheap, but you saw the price points start creeping up to the point that they are in the $40 range.

We couldn't sit by and watch the 914 (and 911) community get screwed over buy poorly built over priced parts.That's why we made these.

So 1st off we are offering a 1 yr warranty


We may even extend this as we continue to test, but for now it's an industry leading warranty.

We have expended a lot of resources to get these right. I will note that they are slightly larger than the OEM ones. This was necessary as part of the improved design.
We did check the fitment and the clearance on the relay board and the headlight plastic covers is good.

Here's the deal-

Like always we are giving the World community the best possible pricing

]We are offering up a set of 5 for $60 Yes $12 each!

There will be a option to pick up an extra 2 are the same price if you should so choose.
If you want individuals $15 each (Less than 5)

This will be for a limited quantity we are only going to offer 100 "sets" at the GB price as it's below cost.

After these are gone they will be $15 til the end of the month. The regular price will be $28



Our testing so far is in excess of 43,000 cycles. I know we were at 42k when I left Friday morning.

Ask Cary about being stuck on the side of the road when his new fuel pump relay (not ours), left him stranded on the side of the road.

The originals were not bad, but getting near 50 and they are do fail, just a matter of time, however the OEM ones you could get 10 years on easily with daily use.

The ones that were remade by another company had a notoriously high failure rate and when I last checked they were still "re making them" Leaving the original purchasers high and dry without ANY warranty, I'm sure they will chime in now and say oh yes, we are improving the product and we will be "happy" to take care of you.
Now there is another choice. You notice they didn't recall and offer to make it right, only when called out.

That and price points went up once they thought they "owned the market"

We are committed to providing the highest quality product and we stand behind our product with actual testing.

So that's my vent, I'm sure I kicked a hornet's nest, but it's all true.

Yes but we have 59 folks that are interested on the total of 100 sets, so yeah, I may be giving away a few, but the reg "sale" price at $15 will be available til the end of the month.

I'll work on getting the listings together in the next day or so so we can open this up before we sell out all the 100 sets.

Thanks to all.

Nope. I need affordable light bumpers that are less expensive than the current offerings.

And this was the most blatant abuse of marketing in the garage I've ever seen. I love Mark and 914rubber and all they do. But if everyone marketed like this in the garage it would destroy the place. There's another forum for that. A notice here in the garage, linking to a vendor forum thread would be great.

agree.gif

I bought into this group buy, am thankful for this new product, and similarly appreciate Mark & the whole team at 914rubber, but…

…but there has been an increasing trend to use 914world's Garage as a marketing tool for sales when there's a member-vendor forum—and the "psssst, big news but we won't tell you what it is" followed by more or less selling out the first run (of an admittedly cool product!) doesn't "feel" quite right if I step back from it. Another vendor actually started a thread with a title to the effect of "The Ultimate 914 sun visor" or some such, pitching an expensive product as the perfect visors for the best cars, but then wouldn't answer a simple question about the product's vinyl grain (which looks wrong...). Of course, what thread will come up in a Google search down the road, and possibly for someone who doesn't know any better?

While this isn't a problem for the vendors, it is a potential issue for 914world as well as the preservation of these cars...

I'm basically giving these away. It's something that I only do here. I do it not to just sell product, but to help the community. As you can see, the GBs that are worthy have legs, if it's just a sale, they tend to go away.

If it's a matter of revenue, I'm quite willing to donate a percentage to the upkeep of the site. I do enjoy making parts and will continue to do so, just like to offer up deals for those that need it.

I fully anticipate this thread will die out as soon as the 100 are sold.

Thanks for the PM, and thanks for such a level-headed and cool response.

I agree with your take, and would take to see GBs that create real value for the community to be discouraged. Just wish some other vendors followed your (overall) lead when it comes to their approach, and wonder how to maintain opportunities for discounted GBs without leaving the door open to the Garage to be turned into a marketplace for full-price ads from less scrupulous suppliers?

Best,

pete
