    ? for those who have a GT3.2 w/ PCCB

    Anyone with a MY10 GT3 w/PCCB

    Is a wheel locator supplied in the toolkit?

    The locator is about 2.5" in dia 6" long and slightly tapered.

     

    TIA

    I have a 2008 GT3.  There are two locators in my toolkit located under the floorboard of the trunk, but they're not 2.5" in diameter.  They just look like long bolts threaded at one end and tapered at the other.

    Question:  When I wash the car I ordinarily scrub the insides of the wheels with a long handled brush.  The PCCB rotors in the front are so big I have to "shove" the brush between the edge of the rotor and the inside of the rim.  This can place a significant lateral bending moment on the rotor.

    How brittle are those rotors?  Is it possible to fracture the rotor doing that or is the PCCB rotor strong enough that no human could break it?

    a)  Your 2008 has the 5-bolt-hole pattern wheels whereas the 2010 has center-lock wheels, requiring a larger diameter guide bush.

    b)  The PCCB rotors are not really THAT brittle but you might still want to look around for a brush which is a better fit, just to make wheel-cleaning less of a chore. Smiley
