    Breaking the 7min mark is quite an achievement since the .1 RS was somewhere around 7:12. This with only 20 more hp and better tires. The thing to remember is that 7:12 in the car world is blazing fast and to be able to improve on that by more than 10 seconds is amazing.

    .1 was 7:20... .2 looks to be equipped with super sticky CUP2-R compound which is rumoured to be 4,000e a set Smiley

    It makes the .2GT3RS even more impressive.Smiley

    I believe the sticky Cup2s are on the GT3RS Ring car.

    Porsche probably could have gone back with the GT2RS with the stickier tires and set a even faster time, but they won't. They already got what they set out to do, the Ring record and no one else is close either.

    Just like the 918.

    Why would Porsche use the sticky Cups for the 3RS and not the 2RS? Wasn't the Permanente on sticky Cups?

    Stickier Cup2s were not available for the GT2RS back then, they had to make do with the regular N2s

    Didn't RC just post they are available? For a street use, not sure anyone would want them. Probably get about a 1000 miles out of them at a cost around $5000 a set.angel

    No, not for street use.  But street legal to get to the track.  Wonder how they compare to Hoosiers which are ~$2,000 a set - probably similar lap times.

    Smiley I wouldn't recommend these tires for street use, they can be pretty dangerous on wet roads. Smiley Not even close to the regular Cup 2 on wet pavement, unfortunately. So I guess 95% of customers would be happy with the standard Cups coming with the car, this also saves a lot of money. Smiley

    Usually very sticky tires (like Hoosiers) tend to collect more road debris and are easily punctured as well...

    Oh yes, forget about this one. Also tire wear, these semi-slicks don't last long.

    hahah

    And old 3 doors Rav4 with the 2.0 150hp was my first car when I got the driving lisence back in the early 2000's.

    I really miss that car  Smiley Regret a lot about selling it


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Yes, 6:55 was the last official time (no more tries) but it took a lot of tries and "adaptations". Smiley

    Sport Auto will probably do 7:05 or 7:10 in the car, something like that, depends.
