    Your car looks brilliant, really cool spec!

    Thanks 🙏 100% stock. I am thinking about doing Manthey Racing upgrades. Those mag wheels are so nice

    But still not an RS Smiley

    BTW , my brother had the MR back spoiler installed + they put the front cup lip to balance the downforce . Looks good . Just the lip does not have a 100% fit as at the top of the arch it looks vers slightly not integrated , but that is only visible for a connoisseur  . He also had  the suspension upgrade ( not the full suspension )   + alignments done . Result is excellent .

    They know supply a fully integrated part on the upper side of the lip. Good buddy got the entire package including mag wheels and full suspension parts from KW. It is a monster now.

    He has that upper side of the lip ( on his GT3.2 ) but it find it not to be 100% integrated , but as said it is a very small detail and not everyone will notice .  Your buddy's car must indeed be a monster now with the KW suspensions and the wheel . But all that together has put the price of his car above the price of an RS Smiley

    Well apple to apple, it is still cheaper. Mag wheels will require the full WP and still the RS will not have this great KW suspension. My plan is to keep the manual so I will have to go Manthey way as well indecision

    Don't mean to depress you, but the PDK has very small advantage in laptimes.  3 seconds on Nordschleife, fraction of a second per minute of track time.  0.7 sec slower from Touring than PDK with Wing and Ram-Air for 2 minute 11 sec lap here with Andy Pilgrim:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9NVJKvYGHI

    Or maybe it shows you that you can be faster than PDK with these Manthey upgrades Smiley

    At my local track, the only other .2 GT3 (Non-RS) that I have met that was faster was another Manual (driver is an occasional partner of Kobalt at Ring) Smiley

    Why don’t you go half way like mine? Manthey suspension kit, alignment and the standard wing on full attack. Very happy with that setup, and feels very capable.

    Had a great few laps yesterday on a somewhat treacherous Nordschleife, dry mixed with greasy and cold. Had a big moment but all good!

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Track & Fun

    your fear about the mag wheels is a bit overrated as the mag used to be crap some few years ago but till the last decade, they are robust and withstand the hit. kiss

    see for instance the last GT2RS Manthey Package, they let the mag wheels in place and even warranty the package for a year...we all know how the ring goes with the curbs that you are required to play with to get some good timing Smiley

    I am not into GT-cars, but once I started to "improve" I would probably never stop... Smiley ... therefore, I retain my car "stock" and if and when the car performs better or worst on track, I just salut or blame myself (...more often, the latter...)... Smiley

    Where it got ugly in these cold conditions was at Pflanzgarten 2, the rear always tends to get light there when you begin pushing. But now on with cold greasy patches, light translates in suddenly sideways. But clenching but we got through alright, I think if I had braked/lifted the armco would have been olive green now. Smiley
