Superb update old bean! I really fancy some Ohlins now!

Sounds like you were going at a fair lick around that track, good to hear the 996 was keeping the more modern stuff honest Thumb

Great on so many levels Mike. Fantastic contribution as always.

And wholly agree about the eulogising about the ‘6 platform. thumbsup



Thanks Paul, the 996 is an absolute gem of a car to drive, I love mine The addition of modern suspension has modernised the feel considerably, giving a true 'sportscar' experience when driving, with tons of feedback. Cloud 9

Do it Rags! The old bus was quite a revelation at Goodwood, drawing compliments from a 991.2 GT3 driver amongst others who called it a rocketship, mainly because it could maintain a good pace around the corners. thumbsup

With the level of power yours has these days, I think it would really benefit from them too Smile

Cheers Chief! CCC was an excellent publication, much better than 'Lax Power' or whatever they sell these days Rolling Eyes

I know Jon - typo on my part Wink

I've got the 4Ss on a set of rims now & they are very impressive on the road (as long as you don't clip a big flint block on the inside of a corner Floor)

Not tried them on track as I have 4 sets of other more focused alternatives for that Very Happy

Pretty sure PS4S is only available in 19” and above, unfortunately.

I’ve run all sorts on my 996 over the 10 years and 112k miles I’ve owned it. I currently have regular PS4 on the rear, and they are great for road use - bit quieter than the PS2 I had before, and much better wear. Still have PS2 on the front as they don’t really wear out.

Thanks for the replies, chaps Thumb

Need to investigate the tyre situation, but fairly set on Cup2s at this moment in time, as the car is fair motoring when on track now....

A road trip you say, Jon? Surprised Laughing Thumb
