    Obvious straight pipes -- what a sound!

    Do all rally drivers approach the throttle as an on/off switch?

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    Nice video
    It's incredible how much slower is a 2WD car on those road conditions.

    Great video...
    One question:Is legal driving with straight pipes????..
    Can someone tell me a brief description of what is this???(sorry if the question is too )

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    holy [censored]! Thes guys must have huge hearts to drive like this in conditions like this... I tried to fool around a bit with my peugeot 309 yesterday (front wheel driven family sedanon 10 cm of snow and ice) and liked it a lot... on an empty car park... jeez, how does one dare doing this on curvy icy forrest pathways?

    If your referring to straight pipes its just a term. Not necessarily straight, but just an Exhaust Manifold connected to pipes that lead out the back. No catalysts, or mufflers (usually)

    He is a pro :-)
    Nice that somebody brought back the 911s into the rally world !

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    Thats amazing..its not often you see the GT3 so sideways at such slow speed....Cheers!!!

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    That sound is Spectaculer. Awesome video.

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    This video was taken recently at the Ardennes Bleu Rally in Belgium. The driver is Marc DUEZ, former belgian Rally Champion (notably on Porsche 911), who got back Porsche into Rally driving (Group N) together with the Porsche Importeur in Belgium.

    This is the man and some more pictures of his achievements. Few of us would ever think of seeing a GT3 in rally or snow-driving. Well the least you can say is that it seems to work out pretty good:

    Mike,
    Yes most do, I think it's almost a must.. you should go out and try the drifting through a corner like that.. with out the sharp little throttle blips and all you'll not be able to maintain that speed and the angle through the corner you are desiring.. it's basically throttle steering.
    By GAWD! that car sounds super as a Porsche should!

    Mike,

    I have no confirmation on that issue but I do believe that it rather sounds like handling the throttle in two stages only. When travelling on a slippery surface, the tires obviously brake lose pretty fast. I'd say once they lose traction it is easier to stay on the throttle and repeat the whole process consequently instead of trying to stay below the threshold between traction and slippage.
    If you listen to the engine in the hairpins it is obvious that he stays consequently on the throttle if traction permits it!

    Regarding the straight pipes I believe it sounds pretty much like the regular Cup-Porsches (from which this car is derived) and they should have a muffler - even if it's a loud one!

    Huge credits for Marc Duez, for driving the GT3 in the Belgian rally and for driving it the way he does!
    Doc, where is that snowy track pic taken at - Zolder or Spa?

    Re: [Video] Rally Porsche GT3

    Thanks, Ferdie.

    My pleasure, but as I said no confirmation on that! Maybe someone should try to direct an email to Marc and ask him personally?
