Respected suspension maestro Öhlins has released a sublimely engineered suspension upgrade for the much vaunted Porsche 997 GT3 RS. The Swedish manufacturer has genuinely raised the bar for the Porsche aftermarket with its latest kit, offering discerning enthusiasts the chance to balance competition levels of quality, adjustment and control, with genuine everyday usability and comfort.
The kit is a unique proposition, offering a 46mm two-way adjusted shock in the front balanced by a lightweight 36mm shock in the rear with an in-line reservoir for optimum performance combined with minimal size. Perfect for maximising under-arch space for the best possible wheel and tyre set up.
The TTX46MT Club Race front strut uses a forged cylinder head and features two way adjustment for separate compression and rebound adjustment in seconds. Suitable for a 60mm spring, the unit works perfectly ‘out of the box’ but can easily be honed or adjusted by an Öhlins Approved Service centre to precisely tailor it to the driver’s precise specification.
The rear TTX36 damper unit is a perfect complement, being a twin-tube piggy back unit, boasting separate one way compression and rebound adjusters. This unit takes a 57mm spring and both front and rears are fully pressure balanced and precisely matched.
Although many companies claim to ‘trickle down’ technology from their competition programmes, it must be remembered that Öhlins was founded originally with the sole purpose of designing and manufacturing bespoke competition solutions. Öhlins engineers can only work to this one true standard, which means the new Porsche R/T kit is as much at home in the heat of genuine competition as it is on a Sunday morning ‘B’ road blast.
Öhlins is also a proud sponsor of the Porsche Club GB race series, including the new GT3 Cup Challenge, where a pure competition based package is available for those people competing in the series.
The complete R/T kit is priced at £6,136.00+ VAT
