Looks are subjective, but I never liked the looks of the MkIV. It's kind of an amorphous blobular lumpy potato-looking thing, with a kind of vacant glassy-eyed stare. I vastly preferred the FD and...

I disagree that it's "marketing bs all around". The terminology came into usage because it was *useful* to have a name for the layout of having the engine NOT in front, but also NOT all the way in...

UK spec rear toe is absurdly high, -1 camber front and -2 rear is fine and all, but for better handling more front camber is better. I would forget "UK spec"...

I ran 225/50-16 and 245/45-16 on the stock wheels for time trials competition in a "showroom stock" class that required stock size and offset wheels.
1. It looks terrible. 225s are quite pooched on...

Agree with base Cayman w limited options as the way to go. But I'da spent money on LSD, PASM, and sport seats over silly Miami Vice paint!

Yeah, the car is pretty fantastic IMO. I did three basic mods: wheels/tires, camber plates and lowering springs, and won my first event in the club I do time trials with, won 5/7 for the year (traded...

73" is plenty wide enough for me. Then again my favorite street Porsche is the narrow-body RUF Yellowbird... 51" height will come down a bit with proper lowering, but IMO no need for it to be as...

RR is I think a kind of one-event tire as far as quick lap times. In 2018 I time-trialed my BRZ on RE71R and NT01s. After I won 1st event at NHMS by a tenth on 245 RE71R, my competition (also BRZ)...

For my first track event in my AP1 I went with the "recommended" 0.25" total rear toe-in. Handling was, weird... Not nearly as linear or tossable as my 240z. 1st event at Watkins Glen went OK, but...

I think the big C-pillar looks great. A window there does next to nothing for visibility anyway.
This car looks GREAT, IMO, and is a very welcome counterpoint to the ultra-busy designs with a...

Street/track alignment
-2.5° to -3.5° front camber
0° front toe
5.5° to 6.5° caster (most like a ton, I like as little as possible for lighter steering and, to me, better feel)

-2° to -3° rear...

I would run a lot less rear toe-in. 0.20 in. is nearly 0.5°, that will hurt turn-in, wear rear tires out quickly, and can cause the car to hunt or move around over asymmetric bumps/undulations in...

I race a 14,000rpm bike, I still found the 9000-rpm F20C pretty fun :)

Flat-plane inline 4s *scream* whereas cross-plane I-4 sound more flat. Personally I like the sound of the screamier engines,...

I put Ohlins DFV/Road and TRack on my FD in 2012 with ~140k on the clock. Now at ~173k and i haven't detected any performance degradation on the street or at the track :)

Looks like that should work. Most who run square run a much stiffer front bar to balance the car and take advantage of the additional front grip while alleviating load on the outside rear, for added...

The Hankook quoted 40psi hot is likely to be on the conservatively high side. You're probably going to be fine running ~36-38psi hot all around. To get there I usually start at ~30psi front and...

235/40 are significantly (0.6") shorter than 225/45, might not be much if any worse for clearance, might have more clearance at a given ride height.
I'd probably go with the 235/40, but I'd rather...

Raking the car won't shift F/R weight much if at all. Cross weights are adjustable, but left/right and front/rear balance are a function of c.g. location, wheelbase, and track, i.e. they're...
