well, here is my 2010 GT3 height,

https://rennlist.com/forums/997-gt2-...eadings-2.html

10cm from the wheel arch to the rim Front
9cm rear.

the car has stock wheels & tyres.

the ground clearance from the front spoiler is 14cm far from the ground and when using lifting system is about 17cm.

it is my daily driving car but 2 or 3 times tracked per year but @ the track with this setup it is very bad.

Clarke is right on with dropping the rear for my driving style but everyone has there own preference. 325/19, 235/19 Hoosier HRE P40S

How much are you all dropping the rear from stock height?

It went from 126 front 128 rear to 98 front 118 rear. Basically we dropped the front to what 10mm below factory ride height should be and added 20mm to the rear to maintain proper rake. Which also worked out to be about 10mm lower than factory out back.

Front looks slammed compared to what it was. Somebody obviously jacked it up to make street driving easier.

So you basically dropped the car 10mm all around from factory height?

My .2RS had 48mm of rake on it when I received it from the seller, which led to very bad oversteer until I could put weight on the rear with the throttle. It has the factory 35mm of rake now which is light years better, but it could do with 5-10mm less rake.
