    Wow, what weight does it have?

    It only has magnesium rims to save weight. It is all in the aero and chassis tuning. And the tires ?

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    GT3 RS MR modifications :

    - Stock engine (measured power at 496,9 hp)

    - Stock gearbox

    - Stock PS Cup 2 tyres (no ultra-hardcore version like AMG GT R or Corvette Z06!)

    - 1,8 bar warm tyre pressure on both axles

    - 20% more downforce than factory-RS (probably because of the different rear wing-setup)

    - Adjustable suspension from the GT3 R (with 12% softer setup)

    - Magnesium wheels

    - Road-legal racing pads

    - 3,5 Degrees camber on both axles

    - After a few 1:06.2 min laps it managed its best time of 1:05,8 min on brand new tyres.

    Likewise, always good to see you guys! How was the second day of driving?

    Thanks for the lap by the way, car and driver equally impressive. Can't get over what a leap of performance the 991 is compared to the 997, in terms of grip and drivability.

    does it still get light on the front when going over 220km/h as my 997 C4S did? it was really scary.

    With the Tire-Technology of 2017 I would say shave 7 seconds off - with a NBR set up even more....

    You mean having to let pass the Motor Trend test driver in the factory GTS and not being able to keep up with him more then a few corners Smiley

    I had to look up the numbers though and it turns out the there is only 3.77 seconds difference around the Nordschleife between the 991.1 GT3 RS and the 991.2 GTS. I was surprised to see such little difference, but I guess the torque from the new turbo engine helps a lot on a track like the Nordschleife. Hence it is not unlikely the encounter was with a factory spec car.

    The torque difference was there . The GTS pulled stronger out of corners then my RS .
