    USA GT3 RS FEATURES DELETED

    http://autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060605/FREE/306050003&SearchID=73271160546583

    NOT FOR USA
    The following options will not be on the North American version of the GT3 RS:
    - roll cage
    - hard shell carbon fiber seats
    - six point harness
    - pre wiring for battery main switch
    - plastic rear window
    - single mass flywheel

    sorry if this was already posted , but is it true?
    As of now?

    If no plastic rear window, if no single mass flywheel.
    - NO roll cage
    - NO hard shell carbon fiber seats
    Is the USA RS lighter? Or faster?
    Is it slower?
    Perhaps the lack of roll cage makes USA
    version lighter than EURO version.

    sorry I am a newbie, but the USA version is cheaper
    when conversions applied to dollar/euro.

    USA still gets wider rear of course.

    Any thoughts or help?

    Thnxs all!

    No offense, but you are way late to the game. These issues have been discussed ad naseum here and on renlist, and if you are an RS hopeful, you don't have much of a chance specing one out b/c all 229 coming to the US have long been sold. You will be able to get a heavily optioned, auctioned car as some dealers have reneged on their deals with customers, and will try to get 20k, 30k, 40k+ over MSRP. (these dealers should have the GMs and owners hung by their junk)

    Anyway, the above is accurate with the exception of the light fly. That's coming to the US.

    And a SMALLER FUEL TANK - which not many mention!

    Re: USA GT3 RS FEATURES DELETED

    I can get a RS.
    Smaller fuel tank isnt a bother to me, appreciate that
    info though!! No talk about Porsche is nauseating
    to me. Ok, missed the single mass flywheel on USA PDF
    SPEC SHEET. Interesting tho, smaller fuel tank,
    no roll cage. Maybe faster than EURO version.
    YEEEHAAAH!

    Re: USA GT3 RS FEATURES DELETED

    Don't forget the US version is also cheaper, like all Porsches

    If you search on the forums on rennlist.com for posts by NJ-GT, I believe he went through all the calculations on weight.
