    RC:

    So sorry to hear that, Peter. Smiley  Glad you are OK (cars can be fixed).

    So many idiots out there lately. I have so many young(er) patients who take anti-depression/etc. medication and all of them are driving cars. Also, one of my customers is a police officer with traffic police and he told me that lately, they have almost as many drug usage incidents as alcohol, especially with younger people. Unbelievable. Add stupidity and inexperience to the mix and voila...this is what happens. Smiley

    thanks guys! actually it was pretty remarkable how the car stabilized after the right wheels got into the botany and i counter-steered maybe a bit too much. the car just straightened out beautifully. all in all it turned out to be minor but a few inches more could have ended badly. from now on i shall be triple attentive on those narrow roads around me. at this point i am thinking that the lambo and the 488 are much wider still....

    Sorry!  Non-metallic white is pretty easy to match.  A good shop can fix that invisibly without having to paint a large area.

    +1,

    Make sure you take it to a approved body shop. I would use the repair shop your local OPC uses Smiley.

    hot of the press, Gebhardt did a 7.09.59 min Supertest lap with the Manthey modified GT3RS on standard Cup N1. Not too shabby I would say.

    Hopefully a 991.2 GT3 MR laptime will follow in the future. Here's the car that was spotted a few weeks ago :

    Can't be N0. N0 is 918-specific with ECO compound.

    For GT3RS applications it has to be N1.

    The 991.1 GT3 wears N0 Cup2s however, but they are of the smaller size and not of the ECO compound.

    It is silly for Sportauto and Porsche to do a test like this. Porsche should develop products that are fast before a tuner reworks them. What an embarrassing test Smiley

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I had my car setup by them recently keeping the standard suspension including a discussion with Chris Breuer who does all the setup work. We did then 2 laps on the Ring with fresh tyres and a 43times VLN class winner at the wheel and the car was impressive.

    That's what I am in for . I have already a custom setup done at my local Porsche garage but I want to try out their's as mine is too low for the Ring . I am also interested in the mods they will provide so it does not touch the fenders .

    It was N0 - 918 tyres in 918 dimensions. It is in the article.

    It's a tuners car, not your typical stock Porsche car "Under Warranty" that they screw you and void your warranty because of a tire replacement from their back  Smiley


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    It is just "funny" that they had the car in Weissach and the license plate was reading BB...clearly a car owned by Porsche and not Manthey. Weird. yes I get it, Porsche supports Manthey but this is still a bit weird in my opinion.

    Not even sure they did themselves a favor with this review, especially since the GT2 RS review hasn't happened yet and even more...the 991.2 GT3 RS is due soon (next year).

    Not about warranty, but performance.

    But interesting that even Manthey had put N0 on the GT3RS. 

    There is a rumour that Michelin is out of N1 in the GT3RS sizes right now. This is not the first GT3RS that had N0 replacement tires.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I was talking to the instructors at a PSDS event once (all employees, most racers too) about modifications and tuners. They said the only place they'd trust was Manthey, and admitted they seemed to have some magic when it comes to chassis setup. This was some time back as well, so not a sales job.

    Confirmation from MR when I asked for a ride in the RS MR:

    "I understand your thoughts in terms of a passenger ride but we can't offer this as our car is a factory car of Porsche and we are not allowed to take any passengers with us."

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    At the event we are attending there was the LV Manthey Racing RS that is currently beating all records. 7:10 on the NR. Best time ever at Hockenheim with Sports Auto. It was drivent today at the event  on the Ring by  Hulkenberg. 

    The car is engine bise stock. Notice the  funny Exaust ending ( closed , with openings underneath ) in order to pass the sound limits of certain tracks.  kW suspensions , diffusor , complete geometry , magnesium rims , the " 918 " tires , and an extra hole has been drilled in the back wing so to incline the wing more . 10 seconds gained with these settings !!!
