I love having low grip and very predictable tires , wow what a hoot.
My 997 tt has too much grip , RS clone loves to drift and stays totally manageable

we all need more practice in low grip situations

Haha, I know what you mean. I sometimes drive the SC on gravel roads. Woooo, rally car driving style at it's finest.

As much as I hate to brag Jaguar club phoned around the Porsche guys to get the numbers up to pay for a track day. I got the fastest time in the wet. AND I thought I was bad in the wet. Mind you, I got thrashed to death in the dry.

After installing 17x9 and 17x11 Fuchs reps on my 930 and 255/315 tires, my front was rubbing in full lock. Drove me nuts to the point where I had to raise the front end to 4x4 ride height.


This week I swapped in 235 fronts with a slight stretch, lowered suspension to euro height, full alignment. Huge grin on my face now.

Took some time to get the right stance. Super excited with the turn out!

Rised the front about half an inch. Finally just where I want to be. I think



Now I just need to make some decisions about bumpers. But thatīs not going to happen until after this driving season is over. #gettoutanddrive

Current setup. Added 7/14mm spacers with longer studs in the rear a few weeks ago. oddly enough the camber is off enough to cause a rub on the driver side rear fender in hard curves. Planning to lower a little and correct camber soon.

I think it's the angle the fronts are turned to. If you look at the leading edge of the front and the trailing edge of the rear, they're about the same.

But you're right. It does look weird.

Its an illusion in that picture😁 Their exactly the same height. 205/55-16 front, 225/50-16 rear. However all those running 245/45-16 rears , with 205/55-16 front, have got lower rears than front, so its a pretty common sight.

During the winter I refurbished front control A-arms and replaced ball joints and bushings. Yesterday I replaced front brake pads and did some test driving today. Suspension and brakes feel great now and the stance looks pretty good to me.

The weather was somewhat unstable and unpredictable, though..
