    Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    Hey guys, my dad traded his 997S in for this white 997 GT3... came in tonight at 11pm, the blue STi is mine... anyway take a look, sorry for the crap pictures... more to come in the future.

    First mod planned: clear side markers


















    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Father and son love boxer-engines i presume?
    Congrats!

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    ^ LOL, I guess so

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Hmmm, judging from the pics I think the garage is too small for taking pictures...

    BTW, especially like this pic, the two wings look great!


    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    2 very nice cars!

    The big question is - is he gonna let you drive it?

    Andrew can't answer the question right now.

    He's out driving the GT3.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    Hey guys...this is Andrews Dad and he has already driven the GT3 and will continue to. We are going to track together. These cars are meant to be driven and that's exactly what we'll do. I drove it this morning to a meeting and the biggest difference I've noticed between this and the 997s is the clutch feel and the sound. Both are much improved. Too early to feel the speed difference.

    Off riding...then driving.

    After you are back from riding/driving, could you evaluate what you mean with "much improved clutch feel"?

    (much improved sound is obvious... )

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    The clutch pedal right now is stiffer than the old 997S, but the feel and engagement of the pedal seems to be about like th e 997S. The gear box throws are much shorter than the 997S (however the 997S my dad had was without the short throw option). Also, the gear box is heavily weighted, sorta notchy... BUT its not vague, its bad when a gear box feels heaby, notchy, and vague... but the gates are easy to feel and find. I bet some of the notchy'ness will go away as the everything breaks in.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Here are some more pictures... little bit better quality I guess...






    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Awesome - now why can't my old man do something cool like that. He aint't even that old! He's in his mid fifties and actually way fitter and healthier than me, is a better driver (gotta be honest) and has more money than me!

    I guess if I was living at home, I would MAKE him buy a cool car since its only the old man and ol' dear they are happy with a Jag and BMW.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    It looks gorgeous. Can I have it please?

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    How did you get that dent in the right front fender? Just kidding!

    Very nice car. Congrats and best of luck to you and your dad.

    Beautiful cars. Are those Mavic Krsyrium SL wheels on the road bike?

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Nice one!

    Must be fun saying: come on dad let's see who's the quickest :P

    hopefully you got the 2nd set of keys for the gt3?

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Not "crappy" at all! Keep'em coming! Many congrats!

    Devo,
    I think they have too many spokes to be Mavic Ksyriums.... maybe they are Campy wheels?? what type bikes are they?

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    I'm betting that they are Ksyriums.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    They are Ksyriums...I love cycling and those rims are awesome. The bike is a Look 585 Carbon.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures... etc

    Me too! Nice bike. I have the same wheels on a Merlin Extralight Ti, Dura Ace 7800, Easton composite fork, Look Keo pedals, and a bunch of overpriced light weight goodies; and of course, the Mavic wheels. 15+ lbs.

    Re: Dads 997 GT3 Arrived: Some crappy pictures...

    Congrats Andrew! You need to get some video clips! Everybody rants about the sound of the new GT3 but I have never heard one revv or at WOT
