    I thought all the pccb brakes came with braided brake lines?  Mine did?  Did I mention we something or are there better grades of brake lines which are stainless steel braided?

    I agree this is not an overly modified car for such a record. Just look at all the active aero tricks on the Lambo. 

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Dot sure about the PCCB ones, but the other ones , even on the RS, are not real braided . They do have some steel in them but are not completely covered .  I did the upgrade on my RS . It was highly recommended by MR

    Seems more Lizard green than acid green. Can't quite tell with those filters.

    On a side note, Porsche finally relented and let me delay the pick up of my GT2RS till April 11th, at Leipzig. It was done last month, they had wanted me to take it within 8 weeks and their 'favour' to me was allowing me to do it end of Feb. I told them nein, I don't want to have winters on the car.

    Nick, take my advice and drive it directly from Leipzig to Meuspath and let the Manthey guys do there magic🤪👍🤙🤙


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Have to agree given the impact their magic has on my GT3. I'd send Porsche's best offering there in a heartbeat, especially if it's your only chance to visit them this side of the pond with the car.

    Manthey cannot touch a car on European delivery. Smiley

    The export agent and inert agent checks the car isn't modified in any way. The only thing Manthey can do is to adjust the suspension settings to the best of the factory allowable range.

    I might be able to sneak the water tank into Canada in the front trunk though.

    From my "experience", 90% of the YouTube "stars" or "influencers" (as we call them Smiley) come from wealthy families and cannot pay for their cars and/or lifestyles with their YouTube/advertisement income. There are a few exceptions (like Vanoss Gaming or Jeffree Star) but people like Shmee150, Vehicle Virgins or Archie Hamilton Racing, etc. come from wealthy families, so no surprises here. Smiley

    They picked the ZR1 angryheart

    The Corvette ZR1 won because it brought out the wide-eyed enthusiast in all of us—IndyCar pros, club racers, and jaded journalists alike. Everyone wanted more time in the ZR1. Every aspect of the ZR1, from the rib-cage-vibrating engine note to the adjustable traction control, strikes a chord. The Chevy also happens to exhibit many of the McLaren’s qualities at one-seventh the price. It, too, is awkwardly but compellingly styled by the demands of the air and the engine. Like the Senna, it combines an appetite for lap time with a remarkable ability to handle imperfect roads.

    "If the Pista, GT2 RS, and McLaren all cost the same, the ZR1 likely isn’t on par with them, because it’s not as comprehensively designed," Hildebrand said. "But it would still be the car I’d feel most guilt-free about driving the hell out of whenever I wanted, over and over again."

    The only US cars you can see on German roads from time to time are Jeeps, Teslas and sometimes the Ford Mustang. 

    Saw a Cadillac Escalade once in Munich and a couple of Corvettes from time to time (maybe one or two per year).

    The biggest issue in US cars is the interior in my opinion. So much plastic and cheap materials...don't even know where to start. They could easily improve this stuff with a few tweaks here and there, wouldn't cost them much either but I start to believe that US customers actually want this crap. Smiley
