One of our clients recently moved from a 2001 Cup Car to a 2010 GT3... His goal was a more controllable car that would be a blast for track days.

Step 1: Drop Car off.





Step 2: Install Parts:

Parts:
Our new Swaybars
Adjustable toe Links
Adjustable drop links(not shown)
New Linear 2.25ID Linear-Rate Racing Springs(After perches are machined)







Pet Shop Dog "Daytona"...



Align GT3 with a blurry Face.





Take cool picture of Car in front of shop...



This upgrade is available for all 996 GT2/3, 997.1 GT2/3/RS and 997.2 GT3.

Springs are only sold if you do our sway bars as well(matched rates)

Note: We have to make adjustments to your front struts.

Are you revalving the dampers? Using tenders?

We use the correct length springs so tenders are not necessary. This particular application does not require valving. If you look at our normal stage 3 plus system we retune the PASM box... not necessary for this application though.

yes they are, biggest difference is that they are linear, not progressive.
I thought the OEM were linear. Do you have a curve comparison or something?

And what do you mean by "We have to make adjustments to your front struts."?

EDIT: GT3 front springs are linear... We adjusted the rate... I was confusing this with our DampHR

We have to machine the perch to allow the 2.25ID spring to fit.

Are they your new Pro sway bars, or just your new sway bars?
the newest, the latest the greatest.
I just wanted to clarify this a little.

ALL of our sway bars are PRO SERIES sway bars. The sway bars we sell to our customers are the EXACT same sway bars we sell to professional racing teams. When you guys order a set of our Cayman sway bars, you are getting the exact same bars that the BGB Motorsports Caymans are using to outrun the competition. The same can be said for our adjustable drop-links and toe links. At TPCRacing, we don't save our best performance parts for just the pro racers; we sell our race proven parts to EVERYBODY!

For those not familiar with the function of sway bars, you may be thinking, "Won't pro race car parts be too stiff and uncomfortable for an everyday street car?"
ANSWER: NO! A set of TPCRacing Pro Series Adjustable Sway Bar will make driving more pleasurable and safe in all environments. They do this by improving your vehicle's balance during cornering, providing a better contact patch between the tire and the pavement. As we all know, a bigger contact patch between tire and pavement will provide a higher amount of traction and control to the driver.(Of course there are limits, flat tires might have a huge contact patch, but they will not improve your handling.)
