some scheel or rs-recaro seats, maybe with green tartan may look amazing.

Love the color! Those wheels do not do that car justice though!

Some don't but, I like the Minilites, I have Australian superlites. You could go back to Fusch and look like every else? I like your car.

You can look like everyone else or put your own personality into your ride.

I love the minilites. Have them on
the rear of my '66 outlaw too.
Yours is a great looking car- I love seeing the unique features that each person adds to their p car. To me, more than half the fun of fixing these is making it special and different.

All those lights in the front probably help the for/aft weight balance, ha ha.

Outlaw911 - I've called TireRack and they always seem to come up with options that are not listed on their website. Give that a try.

Lower front end?

Steering wheel shake and bump steer have been fixed!

But after the car came back from bump steer kit install, I started to notice the cars front end seems to get "floaty" now above 80-90 mph. Yes, I know these cars have significant rear weight bias and deleting the rear wing probably isn't helping- but this is different. Car feels more sketchy at speeds than it did before.

I noticed the front end is higher after bump steer install- see updated pic.

Do people think lowering the front end would help this issue? Will lowering front bring back bump steer- even with bump steer kit?

Bump steer kit would have changed the toe in. Did you have the alignment done after install? Increasing Castor a bit can improve stability.

Early S front spoiler makes a huge difference in front end lift, but it takes away from the ST look. I have a 69 hotrod with an S front spoiler and the car is very stable at speeds I will not mention here.

I suggest having a tech who really knows these cars drive it and see if they think the alignment is right.

Does the shop that did the install/alignment know early 911s well? If so talk to them and let them drive it, maybe they just missed on the alignment. I dont have personal knowledge on the different front bumpers but it does make sense that the s would help with lift.

There are all these custom splitter makers on the market. I wonder if you could get a black splitter to mount under the front. Barely noticeable so it preserves the look and would have similar effect to S bumper.

Iíve had the same problem. Did my own alignment using several methods. Not convinced that the car handled as well as my previous 911, I had it professionally corner balanced and aligned using this equipment. Anything else is just a guess IMO.





Cheers,
Johan
