BJ InnesRalph, Thank you for posting the above You Tube clip. Always interesting to hear the Vloggers take on the 718 Cayman GTS PDK. All the previous official road tests by UK mainstream mags have been with the 6 speed manual version. The PDK optimises the 718 GTS in no small measure. Also good to hear positive comment rather than the usual chorus of dissenters. My first track impressions are coming around soon. Brian
MotorheadLooks as though you're maxed-out there Brian.! I may be wrong but I think the rear camber either isn't adjustable or easily adjustable; only toe-in? From your before and after measurements it looks as though they were pretty close to your target values anyway. I presume that now you're well into the running-in period (3,000 km?) you're starting to extend the rev range? Keep up the good work reporting your CGTS experiences. Jeff
BJ Innes718 GTS Top Front Strut Mounts Maxed on slots The photo below shows the front top strut mounts on my car at their maximum negative camber setting. With the exception of a few very specialised 911 GT models, all road going Porsches have only rudimentary slots or eccentric bolts for camber and toe adjustments. As a result, the fine tuning accuracy of suspension geo settings is all but impossible. It's very much a hit and miss job, that is why tiny discrepancies from side to side is the normal outcome. The spherical bearing rose joints as fitted on some 911 GT models provide extremely accurate suspension geometry adjustments over a much wider range than can be offered by eccentric bolts and slots. Spherical bearings also provide solid direct anchoring of suspension components at the expense of NVH. Brian

JeffJeff, The rear camber and toe on the 718 are both adjustable by eccentric bolts as on previous Caymans.
BJ Innes The exhaust sound seems different on the GPF car, and with the compact mufflers, it would be a relatively easy modification for Porsche to design a different exit point for the twin tail pipes on a future evolution 718.
