I'm running 100mm / 130mm but I'd also be interested in what other people are using.

Good question.

Where are we measuring from? Floor to fender?

What is 100mm/130mm measured from? The floor to undercarriage? so 4" in the front and 5 1/4" rear?

There's a couple of bolts that you measure distance to from the floor. The GT3 shop manual has a description.

The Boxster Spec rules specify the measuring points (I am quoting this since we're in the Racing Section);

Ride height minimum 90 mm front and rear as measured at front cross of aluminum cross member and front-to-rear braces near rear sway bar.

Of course, there are a myriad other ways to measure this.

From personal experience I think 90mm is too low and 100mm is probably pretty close to my current setting. Add in a bit of forward rake and front tire grip improves dramatically.

If you run as high as 130 rear don't you feel the car over steer then?
I run about 95mm both front and rear but don't know if it's optimum?

No significant oversteer but there's of course several other factors that go into that.

Ar du svensk? Var i Sverige?
