Which shocks and springs did you go for?

After reading your thread, I’m thinking susp refresh, brake upgrade and buckets to be the first expenditure.

I can rip a load of crap out to lighten things up too.

What’s the deal with harnesses and cages, is there like a half cage option do you know. Something to beef it up in a roll (god forbid) and attach harnesses to. But to not completely lose the ability to use the car as a road car, if that makes sense?

Hahaha! Cheers Mark!

Marty, I went FSD shocks with H&R lowering springs (I'm sure its all documented earlier in the thread).

Regarding the cage, not sure... Its already got rollover hoops (the whole structure of which is like a half cage) but the boxster race series mandate the use of a hard top.

Cheers, wasn't sure I had seen the info re. the suspension. Will check it out.

So the OEM rollover is decent enough to make you feel secure with regular tracking? Obviously would need some cage action to get harnesses.

Looking good Raggy. Sorry if I’ve missed it but are you PPF’ing it?
It’s almost too nice to use now. I made that mistake with my C2.

Great job though. Thumb
