motorsport track control arms and toe links

We've got to the limit of the tow links on our boxster race car still has too much toe in. Someone has mentioned we can use the 997 Cup motorsport track control arms and toe links.

Does anyone know if it's just a straight swap for a 986 ?

Straight swap. Get a good alignment and you are set.

If you use the 997 cup coffins I dont think the banana arms will fit over the puck. .use 996 cup.

The 996 fit as a direct swap. The 997 rears fit. The 997 fronts are longer on the inner link head the coffins are the same. 996 adjustable toe links work and a few after market companies supply these. I'm using a set of Top speed links, 997 coffins and 996 inner link heads. Be careful about 2009 > +.

I suppose you dont need anymore neg cam on the rear, so you only need the toe links....if you were splashing out on the adjustable coffin arms...get them for the front where you could do with more neg?

Yep - just looking to get the toe links for the rear.
Adjustable coffin arms for the front would be the ideal. What's the best option for the fronts only ?

I just wrote a big reply but seemes its vanished!

For the front arms that give you adjustable camber (and castor) you could just go for the 996 GT2/ or optioned GT3 arms.

The motorsport parts will add rose joints on the inner bearing.

Or go to RSS or Tarrett
