nice! as mentioned, that and the tbd lsd was enough for me. be following to hear what you think about the rwd w lsd and merely pulling the cardan without having completd the full monty ( yet! lol ).

i think the difference of front end geometry would be most noticed at speed. to be honest, for my driving in canyons, i can't discern any noticeable downside to running without having swapped uprights etc etc.

the night and day difference for me, in power delivery and predictability, though was achieved by simply going rwd and adding the lsd.

at very high speed though, i can see how that might change and make the full rwd suspension conversion that much more *necessary* or at the very least, "desirable".

The car looks great. I think the wheels and the wing really make it look like a fast track car. I enjoyed reading about all that has been done so far. Keep it up!

Very nice. Post up pics. I'm considering getting the OEM Clubsport cage and swapping it in place of the OEM half cage I have now.

Interesting I didn't even know there was such things available from Porsche...I can imagine they are pricey? Have a link or pics?
Guessing you'd need to gut your car after that...

Driveshaft and front diff and axles out today. Also threw the slicks and CCWs on as well. Cage in this week and hopefully lsd after that. First event March 18-19 getting close.
