Looks like with R7 you have to downsize in the front to 235 and upsize in the rear to 315.

With R6 you need to downsize both front and rear to 235 and 295.

Only MPSC2 had the stock size but not a full slick tire.

I am fitting my bar in this week ... Cantrell bar is cool but I didn't like the fact they have 2 breaks in the main hoop which is not as solid as 1 piece bar like we did. It's not finished just yet but should be done this week.

Thanks Joe!

We just wanted to make a harness bar that actually functions the way it should and not just looks cool in your car.

Main things were considered when we designed it - Safety of the Driver, Safety of the car and Stiffness that it will provide. Being a solid piece and 100% bolt on I think it will be a great addition to my GT3 Just need to finish a few things

Aleks, did you manage to secure OEM LWB's or are you going with after markets?

Really easy, first make a template from the driver's seat:

Montoya,

What tool did you choose to cut the seat she'll with?

Thx.

Ryan

Then peal,back the felt carefully where the hole is supposed to go. Use tape to hold it back. Warning, when you cut the carbon fiber the dust goes eveywhere, so cover with tape the sticky side so it remains tacky (learn from my mistake!) Take some measurements from the drivers side, use double sticky tape and place the template down on the shell. Double check that there are no cables underneath where you are going to cut, move them as far as you can to be sure. If you have placed the template properly the foward edge of the hole will line up with the pass through in the seat.

I used a multi tool with a carbide cutting bit and it cut quickly and easily (watch those wires!)I set the cutting depth just deep enough to cut through the CF. Sand and smooth it so there are no ruff edges fold back the felt and that's it! I did check the occupancy sensor to make sure it was not harmed and all is well.

may not be a bad idea to turn on a vacuum cleaner and leave the hose next to where youre cutting

Montoya, have you decided which route you are going to go with the anti sub strap mount?

^ I thought the GMG one when it came out, but now that I know there is a Porsche substrap plate, I'm curious about that.
