I agree, too, unless there is a bump in the middle of that corner that pops you over into the other lane . . .

My car was at US height.
I rotated the rear torsion bar 1 coarse notch. Approx 8 degree difference. And wound down the front down to suit. I'm just about to go and remove the front struts and raise the spindles 18mm.
At the moment it's prob a tad too low, but I'll see what it's like once I've modded the struts.

Wheels are 15x9 in the rear and 15x8 in the front. Custom offset on the fronts to get them to work with the Carrera flares. Tires are toyo rr 225/50 and 205/50. I'd need to check my setup book to be sure but I think current ride height is 23 7/8" rear 24 1/8" front.

Beautiful car/stance enzoducoing! Would you mind sharing wheel size/offsets and ride height please? I have a T.L. that needs some work..... Thanks, Scott

That's a nice car built around a great steering wheel.

WOW!

All cars here are great, but your ride/stance is absolutely STUNNING. Nice Pic. I agree, I am not a Targa gut but don't need totwist my arm for your 911!

I so agree....something about 15s on the early cars vs 16s or 17s that just looks so right.
