Do you have any problems with ground clearance?

I have to be mindful of the 15s low clearance but that inconvenience is more than compensated for by the performance that the tire (Toyo R888) and wheel package bring to the car.

I more commonly drive the car with 16s mounted with Hankook Ventus R-S3s. Better clearance but much less performance.

will hung - Thanks! The front is a Ruf copy and the rear is an IROC. Came out of Jim Newton's shop in CT back in'96. On the car all these years with no cracks. The one piece tail/deck is a SCRS piece apparently original, made by the Richard Brothers team in the U.K. Or so says Newton who has restored two factory SCRSs. Kinda cool piece of history!

Dan,

Very nice setup. What torsion bars are you running in the rear?

Here's a pic of mine courtesy of Mike Lee from last weekends C&CR.

Scott,

The rear torsion bars are stock although they are on the upgrade list.

Next project is building a single in dual center outlet muffler from a one in one out SC muffler.

Your car sets a pretty high standard.

1974 911 on 16" Simmons with Toyo 888's. Cant recall the torsion bar sizes but can remember the adjustable Konis
and here the same wheels are on the 86 Carrera I recently let go
