    crayphile:

    happy New year everyone. I am a long way behind on posting new cars for 2019 so here are a few of the recent GT3 RS which I have not driven yet. Signal Yellow.

    I am considering having all the black plastic bits on the exterior coated to match the carbon of the Weissach pack. Will report back in due course.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Congrats and happy new year everyone

    Wow amazing spec. The painted side skirts give it a different look to all the other RSs I have seen.

    As usual with your cars, terrific color selections. My preference would have been black wheels but to each his own.kiss

    Black is certainly the default choice for the wheels and also the side decals but  I am not a fan of that combo.

    Congratulations for this beautiful car! Which company are you considering for the added carbon parts? DBcarbon? I asked PAG for all these terrible looking parts. Answer was nein.

    The Shelby cost less than 1/2 half the RS. You're right it isn't a fair comparison.

    I know, I know, after one run the Shelby would be kaput.angry

    You underestimate the Shelby GT500. I had the old one, with a few minor mods to the drivetrain (new clutch), the car was pretty reliable for over 10000 km and I really drove it hard and it was tuned as much as possible (in the end, almost 800 hp on the dyno Smiley). This is no GT3 RS though, not even by a longshot. Very nice Autobahn car though and very challenging on curvy country roads and/or at speeds over 280 kph. Smiley If you survive this thing, nothing can really scare you anymore. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    A week ago while washing my RS I noticed a small crack on my front spoiler. I took it in figuring I would replace the spoiler for a couple of hundred dollars. Big surprise. Porsche has changed the spoiler and now a new one install is $850. All the years I have been driving Porsche's with front spoilers, I never has a cracked spoiler. Some change.surprise

    I plan to glue the edge together. Anyone used Goop before?

    Is it the black lip or the actual green painted spoiler  ?

    Sorry to hear that but if it is any consolation for you: My Performante has a forged carbon front spoiler. Luckily, the attached plastic front lip easily pops out of it's supports and pops in back easily as well, so no big deal if you "kiss" the ground, for example when exiting a garage and driving off a ramp or whatever. I had the front lip pop out twice because I didn't pay attention but my mechanic told me that the carbon fibre front spoiler replacement is around 3-4k EUR, so I decided to pay much better attention and use the lift all the time. Without lift, I would be in a big trouble, had several encounters where the lift basically saved my life, especially in Italy around Lake Garda (West side), where they installed some pretty nasty artificial speed bumps to reduce speed. The lift is always a lifesaver, a feature I cannot recommend highly enough.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I used JB Weld glue. It brought the crack together but the result is so so.surprise I think it would be crazy to spend $850 on replacing the spoiler when this can happen again. FWIW, I am careful about using the lifter but after unusually heavy rains in San Diego the roads are a mess.

    Now I need to clear the excess glue which won't be easy.

    Nick - It looks like this part is only $299 and my understanding is that it is very simple 10 minute DIY job to install:

    Top-tip, the GT3 Cup part is considered as a replacement part and costs a fraction of the RS-part.

    I did the same on my 997, buy the Cup spoiler and replaced it once every 2 months.

    I still have my original lip spoiler on my 10 years old 997.2RS.  It has many scratches at multiple areas.

    But it is my track car and those scratches do not bother me at all, or am I too cheap?  indecision
