    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    If I decide to buy a Ferrari, this would be the color.

    Interestingly, my RS was parked near a Red Pista in a REA parking lot. When I came out of the store, two men were circling my car talking to one another. The red Pista was still parked near me. Initially I thought someone had struck  my car. When I approach them they asked if the RS was my car. I told them it was and they proceeded to tell me how much they loved the car. 
     

    I pointed out the Pista parked across from me and how beautiful it is. They didn’t know one another but both said though it was eye candy, the RS exuded performance and wanted to know about it. They took several pictures inside and out.

    Watt, thank you. Any comment on the frequency of false readings? They would drive me crazy. Smiley

    The Valentine set on. L screams at the signals at the hospital, and a certain place in town, here - I have to turn it off when parked at the hospital.  The RedLine ignores those signals.  The cops know about those in town cloaking signals and set up speed shop to catch those who think:  same old false reading....oops!

    Watt, good to know. Thanks.

     I salivate every time at look at your Ferrari photo. Drop dead gorgeous. Envious.Smiley

    What does Ferrari charge for the extra door pocket option?? 

    Haha- over $600,000 it's freeSmiley. Anyone who has research on the carbon fibre wheels I'd greatly appreciate seeing it.  I am wondering how robust they are compared to aluminumSmileyThanks

    Wheel Enhancement, where I've gotten all my wheels for 30 years, set me at rest on the carbon wheels which they said are much stronger than alloy, and way stronger than the Mags they replaced w alloy on my GT2RS.

    I have written Carbon Revolution asking what where the speeds during these tests:

    Technology | Carbon Revolution | One-Piece Carbon Fiber Wheels

    since as usual I'll be running 110-165 mph across the deserts of the Wild Wild West.

    I ran a set of Dymags on my 7GT2 back in 2010, they are obviously different from these in that they have alloy centres which were bolted to the CF rim, I did a few VMAX events with them on going over 200mph and did some extended fast Autobahn driving. It was interesting as when I visited Manthey for a dyno run during that tour they semi gleefully told me that Dymag CF wheels had no TUV approval so I shouldn't even be driving on them in De !

    This piqued my interest and I spoke to Dymag about it later, they said basically the Germans made getting TUV extremely difficult the unsaid reason being that there were no German CF wheel manufacturers broken heart

    Also don't Konigsegg use this type of Monocoque CF wheels ? they go pretty fast indecision

    The list of mfrs. that they make wheels for is on their website and very short.

    Meanwhile the TRX has its new steel front bumper and grill guard -- lowers my risk pushing trees out of the way, as I can  no longer use a chain saw.kiss  It's really a RAM now.  And to think I poopooed RC when he first recommended TRX to me -- best truck ever, thanks RC.
