More grip over the front?

It's more than just pressures. You haven't said what situation you are looking to get more grip. Is this daily driving? Road course racing? etc? There are way too many variables but the easy ones are tire pressures, tire size, and sway bar adjustments. Have you thought about talking to a race shop to get your car "dialed in"?

Hey LVDell, thanks for your considered reply. What I'm looking for is to ease/eliminate the feeling (that's backed up by tyre wear) of the car being driven solely on the rear axle.

I realise that that's a very vague explanation of what I'm trying to achieve!

Unfortunately, there aren't any commercial race shops out here that deal with the 911.

Grip/traction and Tyre wear are very different. 2.5 camber in the front. That kind of camber won't help tire wear on the street. I assume you have this set up for the track?

  • What do you have the rear set at?
  • What do you have your sways set to?
  • Toe?
  • If on the track - what Hot pressures?
  • What effect are you trying to get? (what makes you think you have a problem?)

Some simple tips.

a.) Soften the front anti-roll bar.

b.) Harden the rear anti-roll bar.

c.) Make sure you have neutral toe or toe out in the front.

d.) Don't push with the gas in the corners, let go of it and let the car "swing" around the corner. (This is very common mistake by even some intermediate drivers)

e.) Make sure you're running correct tire pressures.
