    Pilot:

    Sun must have a blast in his new time machine, especially driving on those empty roads! Just beautiful and perfect doing this in your new GT2 RS ! kisskiss Thanks for sharing Watt.

    Regarding low temperatures: I ruined my tires driving to Palm Springs once on a frosty morning. Lack of traction was not my concern, but I didn't think of compound cracking due to low outside air temperatures as pointed out by Michelin. mail

    Those limitations should be unacceptable in performance cars with significant sales in northern latitudes where such temperatures are common in the shoulder seasons.  Of course owners want to drive their cars for as long a season as possible.  But - it seems to me these same owners are partly responsible since they are the ones pushing for ever faster  Ring times, which have caused the push to these fast-but-fragile tires.  I remember Leawood talking about using performance all seasons on one of his 911s, for long drives well away from summer heat when most 911s were in storage; maybe there is a market for such tires these days so that GT drivers could extend their season? 

    Central NV back to high 50's 9 am to 6 pm, still very cold at night -- that was a late winter storm that brought the daytime 38-45F, would've been better to run the RR up first....!  If the GT2RS stays North, it'll park once days stay <40.  Never drive at night not just for cold, but also Elk and Deer.

    One could go to to a less aggressive tyre than Cup2 to extend one's [non-GT2RS] 911 season such as ______?  Which all season, Leawood? 

    Even the RR will need winter tyres if it stays North, the Yeep is year round with Mud/SnowsSmiley

    This car is spectacular. The carbon work on the rear end matches the black so beautiful. 

    I know you do enjoy it every single day you drive it. That's the best part of it. Way too many RS2 are hidden in Garages and not many dogs will have the chance to ever drive in one!


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Haha,

    Sagebrush Retrievers had a good run today! 

    Talk about drinking petrol - at 130, the RR just throws it out the window!  Lucky Sun knows where all the petrol pumps are, even the 87 only/no premium ones - he needed an unexpected 87 stop in Death ValleySmiley

    Porker:

    Cool RR! What engine do you have?

    5L Petrol - it goes!  Petrol burn massive as mentioned at 130-135 [with accompanying repeated 100-140 accelerations]....  range drops to 200 miles per tank from 310 miles per tank at 90... but much more funSmiley   A little speedo light comes on at 135... I guess to tell you not much is left?:)

    LWB=Labrador Wheel Base

    Lots of software gremlins:  "you've selected low range" comes on at 130.... stereo turns itself on...  etc., as discussed on any RR site...

    The brakes are stunning, but even w suspension in Dynamic, corners like an SUV, can't figure out why:).  All around great off/on road Lab Rig. Low range, full size spare w 19s, and runs! Los Perros love it.Smiley

    Watt, I'm afraid I am going to visit you with my son... When he saw that Gator in the background, he was like "he has the real thing, he has the real thing". Smiley Background story: As a younger kid, he had a smaller electric version of the Gator for the garden and he loved it. Actually, that Gator looks (size-wise) like his. Smiley

    Agree on the dangerous of avalanches.  I know of someone in the States that went heli skiing into an avalanche.  He survived but a couple of skiers in front of him didn't survive.  He also, amazingly enough, a business jet crash too.

    Pretty unlucky/lucky guy , depending how we look at it !

    We have about 23 people killed each season from avalanches , and over 200 injured . No matter how careful you can be ,sometimes there is nothing you can do .
