Well here's my opinion.
I've had my 72 911 for 20 years. It's gone from the stock 2.4L to a 2.7L and now a twin plug 3.0L. Suspension upgrades along the way but still torsion bars. Weight reduction as well as horsepower means nothing it's power to weight! I'm at 9:1.

Good recommendations to find a shop familiar with the older cars or better yet builds or works on vintage race cars. Corner balancing is a must. After I did that the handling is nearly neutral.

I've run my car at Sebring, Road Atlanta and Savannah on track days and out west on about 7 of the tracks on the west coast. I know a better driver could push my car faster but I just work up to my limit and enjoy.

This is still a driver and at 241,000 still puts a smile on my face.
