    Thanks to all of you.

    The car is totally different then the GT3, you drive it differently, the front of the car is much more heavier then the GT3.

    The GT3 is really focus on the race and track, once you have choose your way to go in a curve or line the car goes there and stay in the line you have chosen. the car has a light front and it's really precise.

    The Turbo is more a GT with alot of horse power. i have the feeling that the turbo ask to be more agressif with it. You have to bring it where you want it to go. With the GT3 also but it was more easy, the car demand it less. The front of the turbo is really heavy and you feel it in the steering weehl. I remember Roland fron the Hanseat loved the car and could do everything with it but his car was not original anymore, so no comparaison. with the turbo all original, you have to drive it correctly and then you can enjoy it.

    i haven't been testing it really to the 100% but i could see yesterday as i was taking my picture in the pass de la croix, that the car was, depending of the setting Sport, sport plus or normal that the car had his differencies. It's a nice feeling but for today, i still give the best point to the GT3 for drive, now let's give me some time to discover the Turbo.

    Re: The Black replace a yellow

    The understeer is an issue but you can learn to get around it, same goes to the turbo lag at certain rev figures.

    Beautiful car indeed, thanks for sharing the photos. blush

    Re: The Black replace a yellow

    Just come bag from a little trip to test the sound of the akrapovic pipe. Result is really good. i just feel that it goes with the car.

    i will get around the understeer session, i'm sure i'll found a better way.

    The affect of AWD. To some it is a feeling of numbness.


    Re: The Black replace a yellow

    what I really momently miss the most from my GT3 is the Manuel gearbox.

    Re: The Black replace a yellow

    You can substantially reduce understeer with a proper chassis alignment, which unfortunately is not the factory applied alignment and it might have a negative impact on tire tread and lifetime. Good 911 Turbo tuners usually know how to donthe job, I would however recommend Mr. Lieb from RUF for this job, he is also close (well, almost) to the Swiss border.

    For me power is pleasure Smiley I more the kind of guy who prefers the Turbo to GT3, but the perfect is indeed the GT2, 2RWD is the key Smiley. Anyway at the moment Turbo S is the best buy you can make, it offers performance from out of this world with a price of this world.
