Caymen R For the track.

Recommended Posts

Just purchased Caymen R new, 200 miles, 6 speed, want it set up for track .

Need all suggestions:

Camber changes... front and rear.

?? who makes the best half cage?

Came with Sport seats... can be adapted to 5 point racing harness?

The Porsche Racing seats are too narrow for my Butt! ??Recaro... wider model seat? Which model?

Best tires for street and track... came with 19" wheels...265-rear, 235- front.

exhaust... not just for the sound... any that actually increase torque and H.P. significantly?

Flash ECU... ? increase performance... OR... do just the turbos benefit significantly?

Stock suspension is not adjustable... change to coil overs or leave as is?

Short shifter... any real difference from stock?

Sorry for the multiple ques.,just came from Ferrari and Porsche is a new World!

The Cayman is pretty good from the factory, but if you drive it hard you will find it understeers. On my 986S, used exclusively as a hardcore track rat, I have raked the car forward to put more weight on the nose, dialed in 3/16ths of toe out in the front, and -3.2 degrees camber. Rear is -2.5 degrees camber, with 1/8th toe in. I use PSS9 adjustable coilovers with three different sets of springs depending on the track. The coilovers have served me well for the last couple of years, but am finding now that I need still more adjustability with a remote reservoir. I also have GT3 sway bars. I had to add adjustable toe arms in the rear, and have GT3 control arms all around too, but I could have gotten away with only the front.

Hope that helps. Hard to answer the Q as it sounds like you are going to continue to use it on the street. What I outlined above is likely not a good street/track combo, but is what works well for me on the track in my 986.
