Well - a good bit of research on the forums seemed to give these a good following so I've invested in some for the TTRS.

WHY BOTHER

As a daily driver the TTRS has very good suspension. For a hoon car I found it a little unsettled over bumps and undulations, which lets face it litter most of our decent country roads, so I was not happy using the power the TTRS has despite the unquestionable traction. In comparison to my previous 911 on turbo suspension it was a ragged mess. The internet feedback from current customers backed up the designer's claims that the kit gave a stable platform that the stock suspension lacked, sounded like the solution for me.

Got the kit fitted on Friday so still very early doors but I'll document impressions here for future info for anyone else.

THE KIT

I went for the fully adjustable front and rear set up so here is what you get.

Rear kit:
Two sets of stacked springs
Two adjustable seat - two parts on a rotating thread
Spring connector
Rubber seating pad

I went for the fully adjustable front and rear set up so here is what you get.

Rear kit:
Two sets of stacked springs
Two adjustable seat - two parts on a rotating thread
Spring connector
Rubber seating pad

Rear adjuster - Stacked springs - Stack assembled






Front kit:
Two progressive springs
Two adjustable seats

Front adjuster - front spring - front assembled






FITTING

The rear kit fits in minutes as its a straight drop in replacement for the stock spring
The front requires the removal of the front strut
Total time including alignment probably 3-4 hours
The kit comes with very detailed instructions and a step by step so no worries
Also the kit designer/supplier is very quick to answer any support queries.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The road conditions at the moment are pretty trecherous so no feedback on any handling improvement as yet.
The ride quality is improved. It's still firm but much better controlled and settles much quicker after bumps and undulations.
I wanted to start at about stock ride height while I allowed the springs to settle.
Using about half the available adjustment the ride height (measured ground to arch lip) changed to 654mm rear and 646mm front against 666mm/657mm as measured before the kit
Not a great deal of difference to see in the before and after shots at the moment but I'll test the adjustability by taking it a bit lower once the springs have settled.

BEFORE





AFTER







The beauty of the kit is that you can set the ride height to the exact mm height you want by turning the adjuster seat.

When the weather improves I'll see if the handling is where I want it to be.
