    problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    please sent you very best opinion concering the sport suspension and a problem of bad road surface that exists here in Greece. Its preferable to change the sport suspension to the standart PASM carrera S or to improove the existing one with some aftermarket products (softer springs softer anti-roll bars or even softer dumpers) Please note that here in Greece the road surfaces are terrebly bad and i don t want to lose the stiff sense that the car has in track

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    I think you really need to test drive all three types of suspension (preferably in Greece on the type of roads you would usually drive on). If you can't try the suspension in Greece, just arrange 3 consecutive test drives with a dealer in a nearby EU country e.g. Germany or Austria.

    You should test drive:

    1) standard suspension on a (non S) Carrera,
    2) PASM (normal and sport mode)
    3) and -20mm

    Then you make your choice. Good luck!

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    i you want to push hard you need the -20 ..if you want a great car but more confortabel buy pasm

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    i have changed the suspension on my car this week after 35000 km. driving mostly in athens
    my car is 997s with sport chassis -20mm
    now im happy with my car again

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    the problem with me is that allready have the car and i am looking for solution to make the car less hard....
    the road surface are terrebly bad and some times the car is annoying...........any suggestions thanks please post your opinions

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    I had the same problem, what tyres and pressures are u running cold?
    I am now very happy with my ride. Let me know your data
    Scanners

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    I had the same problem. You can change your suspension in warranty or even to pay after 25.000 - 35.000kms.
    I used to have a 996 GT3 and i changed the suspension twice.. Buy the -20mm. The car is much better.
    The problem is that the pasm suspension is better if you want to sell your car..

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    the problem is that just a few week ago i import the car from germany. I continiusly use the car at national road from Pirgos to Patras and the road surface is completely a mess. I was seriously thinking to sell the car and to buy some other with PASM. RENNTEAMERS DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS???????????????? PLEASE HELP WHAT ARE YOUR RECOMMENDETIONS ???????????

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    If i were you I would sell it or trade it and get another one with PASM. But before I would test drive it to be sure it is what you want.
    You can always go after market but I can't recommend you nothing in that field.

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    Like I said....what are your tyres and pressures, running cold?

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    MICHELIN. I USE - 2 PSI FROM THE FACTORY SETTINGS 1 PERSON ON BOARD NO LUGGAGE
    TELL YOUR OPINION
    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    same as me. except i used -3psi but now Im back to standard psi. what u need to do is soften the walls of the tyres by painting on "Eagle One" WET Tire Shine. Its really greasy silicon like solution goes on thick and soaks way into the wall of the tire. I couldnt believe the differance!. Put on a second coat the next day. let me know how you go?
    regards
    Scanners. .. ps try not to get any on the tread too much, it makes them slip a little.

    Do you also use nitrogen in your tires?


    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    is this an attempt to discredit me?
    Our -20mm suspension LSD is extreme and feels every bit of the road, with that, it handles with brilliance. pity you may be driving around with a sponge between you and what you paid for.. and no i havent tried nitrogen BUT if it keeps the tire pressure down at high speeds then the fact that i feel a big differance with even 1 to 2 psi it may actually be an advantage.

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    what about nitrogen good or bad for the specific car and suspension setup?

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    i have not tried it, in theory it couldnt hurt, but try my suggestion first. i am very happy with my suspension now. we are the very clever option between CS and gt3.

    Re: problem ? with sport chassis -20mm

    you mean you 've changed the ex-factory PASM and installed Sport suspension?

    Have you driven -20mm in Greece? I would really like to know how it feels on such a bad surface.

    I guess "Pexar" wants to replace the suspension. But in that case he won't have the LSD cause it's integrated with the gearbox. So how ''much better'' will be without it?
