The owner's video (thanks for the loan Frank) gives a warning about getting the front too low. Something to the effect -- "that if it is too close to the bump stop it introduces understeer". Further they talk about 13 to 15mm which is much less than an inch drop. I think mine is down more like 25mm plus.

When I dropped the front, I got the the 10mm adjusters bottomed out tight against the rubber stop.

Is this too low? and if so how much do you back it off?

The rear has explicit instructions about showiung "two threads". I think that one is ok.

Although it looks "cool" to drop it, my real objective is optimum track handling. Increasing understeer is not what I want to end up with.

Opinions appreciated??

X Porsche guy,
I also viewed the tape about lowering 15 mm.
I lowered my Z06 1" in the front and 1 1/4 in the rear.
I have had it on track at Mid-Ohio and had no understeer problems. A little oversteer, yes.
I did have a bump stop problem on a C4 several years ago on track so I know what that experience is like.
Lower the car for looks. I do not think they handle any better or worse lowered. JMO
