Default My car had something from the Carrera GT

Wheel alignment that is...

when I changed my rear tyres last saturday I asked for a 4 wheel alignment and by mistake they used the Carrera GT settings (none of those were sold here)
When I got the numbers sheet I couldnīt help but to burst in laughter and asked for a new appointment ASAP.
The car handled perfectly with CGT settings but today I had a new alignment done and the 964 settings are now in place.

You DO NOT want the normal C2 specs. Ask for Euro RS specs. Better ride AND handling. Quicker turn-in...just a lighter, more neutral feel overall.

If you need the numbers...here's a chart. Try them out and have fun!

How does CGT setting drive? Maybe it's a good alternative for 964... :P
BTW, RS setting drives very well for my C4...

RS settings work will with a C4? I should look into that! It doesnt make it nervous for regular daily driving?

Also, do the tyres wear out faster do to increased camber or something?

Thanks!

One man's nervous might be another man's neutral but I like it. Feels more like a mid-engined car. Honestly, it's not nervous at all but regarding wear I couldn't say. Only drive the car every few weeks. Overall I doubt it's that aggressive but more knowledgeable members can chime in.

As for the C4...I believe the suspensions are identical but I imagine the weight distribution is different so that might require fine tuning. You'd probably have to have a pretty sensitive derriere to be able to tell at public road velocities though...

I would think the C4 would need a little more toe out at the front - when you accelerate the driven wheels want to pull forward creating a dynamic toe in effect?

The RS spec is more sensitive to road surface condition but overall I think it's ok for daily driving. It's more responsive and agile on cornering though. As for tyre wear, the inside did wear out faster than outside, I can post some pictures of my AD07 after around 8000 km later.

Thanks to all for your help!!!

I will try RS specs if I find a good shop to do it, the CGT settings were OK but I didnīt push the car much as rear tires were new so I really canīt tell
