Cup spoiler then you better get a move on

pictures of that on a Mk1 would help

Cup spoiler will slow me down on those straights... but can't argue with it being effective on the downforce... here you go, on a Manthey Mk1...





Get this one. Also, carbon doors?

you could also get some stick laminated number plates instead of the original plastic type ones to save a few more grams! Laughing

If general looks are of any concern then avoid the cup and signature spoilers - people will point and laugh.

Manthey RS is your best opption in my opinion. There's also that 'revosport' mob but don't know their credentials.

Mmmmm... a day later, and I think the Manthey RS carbon is getting my vote too. It should be sufficiently effective, lightweight, relatively subtle and not too OTT.

Ade,

Without trying to sound funny, have you not thought of spending some of your upgrade budget on tuition ??



I'm sure Sunny would have seen the benefits from the likes of Mike already, i think this is the best way to get really quick in your car...

I will be doing a couple of trips to Germany for some Handling coaching this year, as that's the way i want to go forward.....

I keep telling myself now, the best upgrades available for the driver LOL !!

Doesn't Philip have an RS wing on his mk2? Don't know if he tracks that car though so maybe no comparison on the potential increased downforce over std.

The 2nd one, Manthey Signature, looks like a GT2 wing to me.

The one with the most downforce is probably the cup wing, 3rd option.
You can see the better aerofoil section and it sits up higher in cleaner airflow.

The 1st one is a bit more discrete and suits the car best.

Quicker lap times might come from reducing the front downforce to balance the car, rather than loading up the back and increasing drag.

If you really want maximum effect, then you need something off the RSR.

I'm quite happy to forgo speed for increased grip (aero/mechanical). Good points about tuition: I was booked with Mike Wilds and Calum and have booked more tuition for later this year.

A big difference between the mk1, mk2, and 997GT3 and 997RS is the width of the track. Each iteration gets a wider track giving greater mechanical grip through lateral loads. This was an admonition of Porsche which is one of the reasons why I'm keen to increase the downforce at the rear of my car as there is deffo room for improvement.

It seems like the Manthey RS is the way to go?!

Ade.

On P'heads at the moment, not in great condition, only fetched 205 (didn't meet reserve) on eBay, recently.

Bit pricey given condition!

I wonder how heavy that thing is? Is your rear engine lid 100% carbon fibre?
