    some of the carby group from VIC would like to do the route again, I think we could have something special for 2018.

    The VIC govt are apparently considering a blanket 80kmh limit for all country roads, so we need to get cracking, in a few years it won't be worth the risk.

    Mine has the factory FHP and the difference is huge. The suspension loads up in the corners giving it more front end grip and feeling . This setup stops the porpoise on acceleration .I agree with Ian. Get the springs and hgtc front and rear anti-roll bar (still available through Ferrari apparently). The car will also it about an inch lower.

    Ok

    I felt the porpoise disappeared after I swapped over the suspension ECU.

    The ecu does help with the porpoising but the heavier gague springs which are also lower take the bounce right out of it.

    Ok, I'll start looking for the springs etc but not sure about the idea of lower. Lots of speed humps near me

    The FHP are low and the HGTC are lower still.
    Heasmans will be able to give you the right advice.

    It's going to transform how the car feels driving it to the supermarket and back.

    You can set the ride height anywhere you want it - nothing to do with the spring rates, they're coil-overs with adjustable platforms. I set mine up with exactly the same height as it was before.

    Is your car a porpoise or a dolphin ?

    I had a dolphin swim past my backyard today .... yelled out to see if it was one of you 575 owners but sank like a rock ....... so, definitely a 575 :D

    Aren't you from Sid-on-nee? You'd be more used to sewerage floating past, wouldn't you?
