Re: Our Professionally Raced Sway bars are back in stock for the 987
Boys and girls....These bars ROCK!
I've got a stock PASM suspension with a little bit of extra camber and a set of NT-01s for track days. I went to R/A last year for a few laps teaching for a March of Dimes event there and taught at Rites of Spring at Putnam Park in April. The car was good, but didn't feel confident around the track. It would change its line mid-corner and require steering inputs to catch the rear.
My "A group" Student had an identical CS to mine with identical NT-01s in the same size as mine. His car felt completely confident and just flat amazing on track. The ride felt no stiffer than mine and was even more comfortable on the track than my car. I grilled him to find out what he'd done to his car and the only difference we could come up with was the TPC bars.
The difference in handling between our two cars was enough to cause me to buy the last set of TPC bars with a pair of their "quiet links" for the street on the front. The car uses the stock rear links. Sure enough, following Casey's recommendations for setting the bars, I now have a balanced, great handling Cayman S.
I have not changed my alignment settings to his recommended ones yet. The car is working well with -2 zero toe in front and -1.8 zero toe in back. I'll probably leave it like this for my upcoming highway trip and change when I get home.
This is the best single mod I've made for my car (aside from stuffing my Bose subwoofer with poly batting...That only cost me $10 and made a night and day difference in my sound system.)
I know you can get bars for less elsewhere, but I think you'd be fooling with them for years before you got them to do what these do out of the box. As you may have gathered, I highly recommend these bars. Good stuff is worth the money. They are great on the street for normal driving too.
Lowered with drop links in the back etc would be even more fun, but I get ground clearance for street driving and a decent ride for touring with wifey. Everybody wins with this setup! If you want a great street car with decent ride qualities that has real stability turning real hard, these bars are the ticket.
I was thinking about getting coil-overs and lots of other expensive stuff to try and iron out the cornering issues. These bars did the trick. Saved me a bunch of bucks and pain. Bravo!
