“Converting the RS to full track duty. Just trial fitted the RSR wheels to see if we need to buy all new wheels or use the RSR’s.
Fender extensions will be ordered.”

“New Suspension for the RS
JRZ full Race shocks
machined Rear subframe, raised up into chasis
ERP Shock Hats
ERP thrust arm bushings
Mono ball control arm ends
no rubber left!!”
“Just returned from the car builder’s.
The rear subframe is machined where it bolts to the body, allowing the subframe to move up approx 25mm, thereby raising the suspension
mounting in the chassis, lowering the roll center.
I will attach some picutres soon. The uprights also require new bearings and retainers as the motorsport part has a 6 bolt bearing retainer
and a much more robust bearing. This is a relatively well known technique that a porsche race car builder would be familiar with.
Also saw some new hardware from ERP. The front suspension strut that is as about 30 deg horizontal to the wheel, connecting the subframe
to the upright ( sorry do not know the name).
More billet – more $$ time to go back to work!
Not sure what body he will be using yet, that is still in the study phase i guess. Cup doors or the doors that may come with whatever kit Bill
selects. The wheel -suspension combo that we want to use is about 1.2″ wider at all corners. going to run the car for a few months in this
configuration while we obtain the the rest of the hardware, good weather is almost here & North East is a short season. As many of you
know, this can take alot of time.
…going to go full carbon body with tubular cage”
“Front subframe is 997 RSR
