    GT2 wanted

    Anyone selling, or if you've seen a good deal, please reach me @ wattwebb@hotmail.com.
    Thank you

    Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    Re: GT2 wanted

    If you need the car mainly for the track, go for the new GT3 and not the GT2!
    The GT2 needs a very experienced driver on the track to be fast, the GT3 is more "forgiving".

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    grant,
    for now to scratch that itch i just got... again. i'll drive the gt2 'til my gt3 hits [sept?], but maybe i'll keep it. colm thinks i'll be unimpressed with the gt3 in comparison... but he ordered a gt3 too! we're so illogical!

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    Cool! I'll be interested to hear your impressions of the two...

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    grant,
    i'm familiar w/ the gt2 having put 5k mi on one.
    will the gt3 be enough more responsive to overcome the power differential, that is the ?. It's only, what, 100# lighter?

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    Watt - it certainly won't be light enough to challenge the GT2 in a straight line, but the real subjective difference is going to come with the power delivery (explosive with the GT2 on boost - a bit lazy off boost) and the GT3 will be very linear, much more easily modulated in a corner and wondeful for aural pleasure and engine braking into corners with the 8,200 redliine. I expect the GT2 to be faster, but the GT3 more fun to drive in the twisties. The GT2 is more fun at crazy speeds on a straight highway. Sort of like the difference between a 73 911S and a 76 930. 930 is faster, but 911S is alot more rewarding to drive (for me).

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    Grant,
    i hope you're right, i'm hoping it delivers the early S/RS feeling!
    And i loved throttle steering my 79 and 84 turbo's... a fun and very satifying accomplishment, it took me a while to learn.

    I will compare them side by side and we'll see!!!!

    Re: Watt - GT2 instead of GT3 or in addition to GT3?

    could this be it?
