    I'm surprised that Porsche's engineers should use the incorrect physical unit symbol, "G" instead of "g" for gravitational "force"?   Smiley  

    You mean "G-force" is not a proper noun? Smiley

    Now you are confusing physics and grammar.  Quit while you are ahead.  Smiley

    Good point. I go back to my corner Smiley Smiley

     

    Just go back inside the GT4 and keep driving Smiley

    Whoops, what kind of Gs you pulled in your 918? Acceleration beat the TTS 1.24?

    It was reset-ed when I bought my car in for the dash screen fix and I didn't think of taking a picture of it back then. 

    Think I was at 1.1g deceleration, 1.4g acceleration, 0.7-0.8 for left and right.

    Do you want Porsche to go back to the smaller tire package of the GT3? In those sizes no matter how extreme the settings are, you won't rub. That would be the only solution, which me as a RS owner will not accept. I'd rather leave the alignment and settings alone instead.

    Alternatively, just take out the front fender linings, that will take car of the rubbing problem.

     

    Various 991 GT3 RS owners report rubbing issues even with the factory alignment and settings. IMO, it is unacceptable. They should have found a technical solution before launch.

    1444567698034image.jpegMy middle son is attending a tennis tournament today in a mountain resort. It gets very long when they qualify .... So I went to a spot to take a few photos. I had been there many years ago with my 997 c4s and took pics from the same place now with the RS. 

    I now have 1500km . My fuel tank only lasts now about 530 km for the 90 l. The cars screens :-)). Have lost the back twice , need to be carefully on the cold mountain roads with the Cup2.  

    On the pics I forgot to drop the front lift .....

    I got the lift and use it each time I take the car  ( a must have option if the car is used in urban areas ) . but I still scrap the lip as often I forget to put it on Smiley  No big deal as it is the under part of that plastic lip .  Thanks for your past feedback.

    Swiss automobile revue have tested the GT4 and the GT3 RS . 

    Here are the datas in  real life for the GT3 RS :

    Official weight : 1420 kg                                                         Measured weight  : 1540 kg , full 90 l tank  .                                         

                                                                                                   GT3 had been measured at 1520 kg but with 65 l tank 

    Weight/power : 3.1 kg / HP

    Official 0-100 km/h : 3.3 s                                                       Measured : 3.7 s   ( air temp 20 degrees )

    official  consumption mixte  12.7 l/100km                               Measured : 14.0 l/100

    Great pics Gnil, keep it coming, it´s a delight to see your car on these cenarios Smiley

    As to test results, 0-100Kph are a bit far from factory times, even with lower temp I dont believe this particular unit could achieve 3,3Sec. Can you post GT4 times?

    I do value the friendship more than the definite victory over the RS Smiley This forum would not have been the same once the brutal truth of the GT4 versus the RS was out there. Now we can all keep pretending to not know and keep admiring the million shades of "high performance" Lava Orange out there. Yes, I know, it is outmost generous and respectful, but that is just how I am. Really, there is no need to thank me.

    C'mon, if Porsche wanted to shave off another 100 kg from the RS, it would have costed another 20k. angry

    Well, time for a street legal RSR for 250k. Smiley
