You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.

Stance is right - just can't seem to keep that pesky inside front wheel on the ground.

Wheels are Linea Corse Fox in RSR finish. 17x7.5 front and 17x9 rear.

Tires are 225/45/17 front and 255/40/17 rear.

I'm going to be re-measuring ride height soon. I had to turn the front adjusters up 1 full turn from where they originally were because the nerf bars were scraping on downhill slopes.

The front was lowered as part of a complete suspension refresh. I used Elephant Racing for most of the parts. The spindles were raised 20mm I believe. Memory is a little foggy - I'll have to look up my notes. Replaced the tie rods with turbo tie rods and ER adjustable bump steer tie rod ends. Front torsion bars are 21 and the Bilstein inserts were revalved on a digressive curve to match. It's not everyone's cup of tea but I love the setup.

Rear torsion bars are 28's. Overall rake is 1.

Soon to have matching wheels, and maybe a bit wider in the rears...

I thought you just finished a sympathetic resto at MobileWorksWest last year? What are you headed to see Freddie for? Inquiring minds want to know!

nice stance i think... probably way lower than euro height. It needed it with the 18s

Mechanically, car is perfect. A non-Porsche guy did the body and there are little things that weren't right. Also, I want to redo the interior with new carpet (red square weave) a few cosmetic things. My go slightly restomod with a few touches. Freddie was back in the Bay area during the last Super Bowl and he came over to see my car. I wanted him to make sure he felt good about working with me to get the car where it deserves to be. He agreed to take my car on as a side project and I finally had the time to drive the car there on my way up to Seattle with my family.
