    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Mike S:

    Thanks guys!

    GT2 RS is home! I didn't get to open her up just yet, but from what I could feel the car is really amazing!

    I can't believe how quick it picks up RPMS for a turbocarged car!!
    The brakes are super sharp, by far the most effective out of all the cars in the garage by a long shot.

    The car itself is also very easy to drive. I can drive it like the Carrera if I wanted. The suspension is very firm, but it's quite tolerable.

    The steering is so precise, I can't even describe. Never felt something like it.
    Going to drive it some more and will post more impressions later.

    For now, some photos.
     

     

     

    Same thoughts when I picked mine up (without the RS badge) 3 years ago Smiley

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Nice, so best steering and best brakes in your stable, that's incredible and puts a smile on my face.

    How come your dash says GT2? I thought it would be the full name?

    Enjoy braking her in and im really looking forward to some scenery shots!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Thank you fellas! Driving experience is really amazing. I've got some nice shots coming up for you tomorrow

     

    @Porker: I also thought they would make the instrument cluster say GT2 RS instead just GT2. 


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Can´t waite to hear your driving report and looking forward to see those pics Smiley

    Re: My GT2 RS...

     The rear is gorgeous Mike !! I can't wait to see more pics of it. Once again you've made a great choice on another great car my friend.


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Amazing looking car.  Very very nice!!!! 


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Wonderful car Mike SmileySmiley

    The clear tail lights on your GT2 RS come out really well.

    That's easy. Porsche produced some GT2RS with the old engine of the GT2. You got one of them. Smiley

    Beautiful car Mike, enjoy! Smiley

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Great looking car!

    How does it compare to do CGT?  Do you have one also?


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Mike, congrats as always, but personally i don't like the red ext with the goldcoloured rims.

    But on th pic outside your home the rims seem silver is that correct or influenced by the reflection of environmental light?

    In case of the silver rims i find the combo a lot better....

    But still, i'd love to have it on my driveway!

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Thank you J.Seven, northshore and Enmanuel!

    Pilot, I am really glad the lights came out so well. I was a bit worried they may have looked a bit cheap intially. However, I'm very happy and pleased with the outcome.

    Thank you Rossi 

    baron, the two cars are very different to drive despite being in the same genre. I will give more feedback as I get more mileage in both.

    Hi Beltar! Long time!! The wheels are gold, but very faint - so it does actually look silver in some light conditions. I would never take the option is it was too heavy in colour. Not my style, but seeing this is one of those cars - I had to give it a bit o flair 

    Thank you throt! Hope you are well!

     


    Re: My GT2 RS...

     I love this combo with the black wheels. btw, Do any of your cars have black wheels (besides the M3)?

     


    Re: My GT2 RS...

     amazing combo Mike!

    love the matt black bonnet!

     

    can u give an impression of the clutch, is it harder than the one in GT3??

     

    last time i tried the GT3 clutch it's a b**tch to drive in traffic.

    The Superleggera(titanium) and Lotus have black wheels as well.

    Thanks derder.
     

    The car is more tricky to drive than the GT3, due to it having a single mass flywheel instead of a dual mass. You have to pay more attention when shifting as it loses RPMS very fast when you change gear (vice versa when you accelerate).


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    One more!

     Now thats a beautiful thing to see when you walk out the door. 


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Thanks E!

    A few night shots.

     


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Absolutely gorgeous, my pick of your stable!


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    OMG that is insanely beautiful. Mike you have the two most beautiful Porsche's ever built IMHO.

    Great shots, as always
