@cunno can I confirm you also run 245 front tyres? also you mention middle hole for gen 2 rear ARB, do you use the same on your gen 1 997 GT3?

Yes use 245 front tyres on my 997.1

The rear abr was upgraded on the gen 2 cars to a stiffer one and I have fitted this to my gen 1. If you have the original gen 1 abr run max stiff ( same as factory setting)

I'm using 245 on the front too, and 5mm spacers on the front as well, both of which made a big difference to killing understeer (also geo/camber all done by centre gravity). I updated my rear arb to the GT2 bar (thanks Cunno), and run that on the middle setting as it has more adjustability than the factory 997.1 GT3 arb
