Take a look at the RSR or GT-2 suspensions. These should work nicely for your project.

Good advice from Glenn,......

It won't be cheap but this works very well:

1) Install a set of Moton Clubsport, 7-way adjustable, remote reservior struts & shocks with a main/tender spring setup.

2) Install ERP front monoballs & camberplates/monoballs

3) Install ERP rear spring plates and monoballs at the trailing arms

4) Install the GT-2 Factory adjustable swaybars

5) Install a strut brace (unless you have a cage)

There are a few more odds & ends, but this stuff works VERY well if its properly configured and installed,....

Hi Steve -

I have a 965 with exactly the set-up you are recommending - am just in the process of installing the Moton Clubsports. The car is striped and has a welded in cage. I'm running Toyo 888 with 305 at the rear and as far as I recall 285s front. Trackdays are mainly northeast - Lime Rock, Glenn NJ. Two questions:

What weight springs do would you recommend given the setup and where can I purchase the GT-2 adjustable sway bars?

Thanks,

Send a PM to "38D"

He used to race a 964T.

I had non adjustable Bilsteins with 700/900 springs, and the various monoball bits as Steve suggests. The trick is getting the shock valving right. I'd consider buying the suspension from Dan Jacobs as he is one of the few that has setup these cars for PCA CR.

However, I would highly recommend against converting a C2T. A Cayman S will be faster and handle better for H class. Plus the C2Ts are getting rare.

Ha! No doubt they would be.

For a little research, even a 4 way is not too bad if you have a system. Add data and it gets much quicker.

I'm curious what comes after low and high speed bump and rebound. That is only 4 adjustments....

Hey Neville,
I run those cars pretty stiff that's a personal preference though and depends too on the cage
Call me about the sway bars

Matt, realizing that the OP was 2003, I'm pretty sure the Moton Clubsports back then had simple bump and rebound adjustable with 7 clicks.

Two way adjustments with seven settings.
