Question 996 or 997

Do you own a 996 GT, 997 GT, both, or none?

Curious to see the split here.

Sweet pics!

Mid Ohio....how does she handle there? Stock setup? I've heard the CGT's can be a handful and like to step out under throttle, has this been your experience?

MO is a great place to feel/play with chassis changes. Menacing combination of low speed and high speed turns.

Two things help Carrera GT track handling when I'm driving

1) Properly warmed-up and "recently molded" tires.

2) Changing the rear anti-roll bar setting from the middle to full soft.

#2 cut 4-5 seconds per lap off my times when the car would actually be able to put down power at corner exit with "normal" rear slip angles.

Happy to hear a simple bar change made that big of a difference.

Btw, great to see you tracking your CGT!
