    Did they deliver your car with the carbon steering wheel?

    I am still missing that part.

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

    Will they change the whole steering wheel or just replace the plastic part with carbon one?

    In my case they retrofit the carbon parts to the same steering wheel.

    Haha,

    Running with the Devil - Desert Slamming

    The GT2RS is amusing, but even more twitchy and darty on bad two lane than the 2002 GT2, barely could hold 115 on certain sections, in the Panamint Valley -- presumably as it's vertically very stiff, hunting and pecking all over.  The stiffness was good when I hit a dip that said 45 at 106, and the car just sat [whereas the GT3 would've bottomed] and I though I was in NZ when the road went to dirt [construction] in Death Valley and I crashed off the pavement due to the perpendicular cut, no harm done, thanks to Porsche Alu wheels [just like last time in the GT4]kiss 

    It vastly prefers smooth pavement.

    The car doesn't press your back n squirt w speed when you hammer it like the 2011 turbo S, but it's very fast.  Better be straight when you hammer it across the buzz cut dotted line in NV --  it'll tweak you sideways [but with much more electronic help than the 2002]! 

    I would suggest an 8th gear as 125 is 4000 and 150 is 4800....  car rested there til more miles.  Drinks fuel at high speed with heavy acceleration - just like the 2002, in central NV sometimes it's stop early to top up or feather the throttle back to make the next gas!!!

    As expected the brakes are TITZ.  Shifts very quick.  Don't know what sport exhaust does, as car too loud without.

    The Panamint Valley, a part where the road actually has a stripe, and no ruts!  Running to Death!

    And those white dots are blowing snow, 39 F in Central NV, had to put on clothes!!!.  The blonde dirtpiles in back are huge mine dumps.

    Hi Watt. Any issues with the rubber at those temps? I've had some tires become next to dangerous at around 45 degrees.


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

    Ran them at 140 in 38F this am, once they warmed up and reached pressure, no slipperyness, but purposefully no cornering!!  Was quite concerned yesterday when the snow flew for 100 miles, but the pavement was still warm from sun prior to the storm.....and the pressures stayed up.

    Today reached the land of the world's biggest Roo boot [s].  This poor guy lost his toe on the ground, many more all around townwink

    At 140-150, the GT2RS handles frost heaves way better than ruts at 115kiss

    The lettering position is odd but correct. I have no idea why Porsche does that.

    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

    Michelin language below is not clear whether 32F or 14 F is the cutoff - by frosty you imply < 32F for your incident, I never saw <38F.  What was the temp for your incident?

    Note: Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires should be stored at temperatures above 32°F (0°C). Below 14°F (-10°C) the tires should not be used, stored, moved or shipped. Lower temperatures can cause the rubber to crack. Cold compound cracking occurs as a result of improper use or storage, and therefore Michelin's warranty will not cover tires exhibiting this condition. Any tires exhibiting compound cracking must be replaced.

    Correct. The temperature was just slightly below freezing. This is what it says for the Pilot Sport Cup 2 (not the Cup 2 R):

    "... and like other Streetable Track & Competition tires, these tires are not intended to be stored, serviced nor driven in near- or below freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice."

    I was initially quite baffled when I discovered fine cracks all over the sidewalls, especially since it was just one time that I drove in such cold conditions :(

    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?
