I’ve been taking an incremental approach

I love solving problems so I drive until get fast enough to start feeling the new problems at that level

Then I work to improve it

Going straight to the hot setup I’d miss all that learning

My suspension guy also is enjoying coaching me
I can't wait to see what I do next!...

This is the proven set-up for a mean racing machine.
It sure does make for a blast to drive. Forgot to mention that yes, monoballs on the banana arms as well for me. I do feel the added weight of the turbo setup could warrant more TB on the rear. Holding judgment till I drive it with the weight loss from the EFI conversion and hopefully some lighter options in place of the factory deck/wing/bumper/bumper pad combo.

I installed a set of toyo r888r and they have really raised the stick! I still have some areas of concern but at this point I'm pretty happy. They're 245-40-17 and 315-35-17.
The obvious areas of concern are push still at a much higher limit.
Turbo powa!

Well here's my opinion.
I've had my 72 911 for 20 years. It's gone from the stock 2.4L to a 2.7L and now a twin plug 3.0L. Suspension upgrades along the way but still torsion bars. Weight reduction as well as horsepower means nothing it's power to weight! I'm at 9:1.

Good recommendations to find a shop familiar with the older cars or better yet builds or works on vintage race cars. Corner balancing is a must. After I did that the handling is nearly neutral.

I've run my car at Sebring, Road Atlanta and Savannah on track days and out west on about 7 of the tracks on the west coast. I know a better driver could push my car faster but I just work up to my limit and enjoy.

This is still a driver and at 241,000 still puts a smile on my face.
