Basically more steering everywhere. The 988 has loads of rear end and to me always feels quite 'stuck' at the rear. Especially in high grip conditions. The new DTS front end gives the car the front end bite we've been looking for!

Only the DTS is new for the 988. What specific conversion kit are you looking for? If anything is coming for the WC then typically it will be released immediately before the WC or actually at the event itself.

Kit avaliable in Europe but dont know from where. ..will be in the (i guess) pending EVO upgrade kit before the worlds.

Great concept which i hope works in the long term...could put a lot of load on the servo and opportunity for generating slop in all those links.

I am quite happy to see M. Salven getting to try new approaches to getting the most out of the car! Since the Veteq he has been always forward thinking!

I doubt it'll be included in the kit as standard as this is an option part. We still sometimes find that conditions require normal front end so this is a good tuning option.

It doesn't add and additional load onto the steering servo whatsoever.

Looking to get a start in onroad, I’ve always loved the serpent platform.

anyone have a roller or something ARR they have as a spare or one not being used they’d look into selling?

Ive kept an eye on the classifieds but not much, or there sold pretty quick.

If anyone has a 977/988 shoot me a DM.

Thanks guys!

You can bump your ad once every 24 hours. You created it on 1/1 as such it gets lost in the abyss if you do not bump it up to keep it relevant.
