1/2 tank, and put dumbbells on the driver's seat 100 lbs - 350 lbs, depending how heavy is the driver.

I weigh 160.

Why put weight if I could just sit in the car?

30mm rake? No wonder why your Aero Beetle has an addiction to agricultural trips.

My rake matches the factory rake, just lower ride height

The ride height front is ground to the above measurement point off the chasis.....same with rear.

The chasis measurement points are for reference, not the same height off the ground.

I believe if you look at my car it is little to no rake

102-88= 14mm
137-119=18mm

so 4 more mm of rake from factory ride height

It was first set by Orbit, then checked by Autoquest

Peter has exact same set up

+1. I'd like to be around 100mm in the front and have the adjustable bump components to do it but I had to go up to 106/126 on my '6 GT3 because otherwise I couldn't make it into my driveway without ripping the darn cup splitter off.

Gotcha, you have 4mm less rake than factory setup. Good to know for when I have to switch over to my 335 RA1's regardless.
