    Do you feel any difference between the car that has the front lift and the one that does not ?

    Hi Eric,

    Heavier brakes + lifts does seem distinctly less agile, but which part of it is just the lift weight in the nose vs reduced upsprung from PCCB, who knows.  A back to back on the same bumps would be nice!  These roads are very bumpy at speed, perhaps less noticeable on a smooth track.  Other than the need to track in NZ, Sun thinks Sky has the better car for slamming' the canyons, and the rough curvy 2 lane.

    As for lift function, the car without performs just as well -  From delivery, The lifts worked exactly twice, then announced failure/needs service!  Lifts should be bulletproof or not offered.  Porsche is having more QC problems, first Nick's, then this.

    But the sun still rose

    Now that Sun is on the cam, then to 9,000, this car is loud -  reminds of Stradales!

    More proof of why Silver is the best color:  All nifty with almost invisible spots of mud after the Pass.... but NZ always provides free car washes
