    Congratulations.
    Ive seen a white one in abudhabi before, very nice. what interior did u pick?

    Regarding the manual, ask HA he has a a red Carrera GT and is in dubai. maybe he can loan it to you.

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    Congratulations on your new car. You can download the owners manual for the Carrera GT from www.renntech.org (You have to register first)

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    I think they fixed the clutch issue...it was only on the first few cars that the clutch was a problem...plus I don't think its that hard to get used too...

    I have read....you release the clutch with no additional throttle applied.

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    First congratulations alsahher on your new car and welcome to rennteam.

    Think of the clutch as an on/off switch.. Its not a big deal and you'll get the hang of it in 15 min. Don't pay much attention to those "horrible" stories from people who can't drive manual in the first place.

    The owners manual should come with the car if you purchased it through the official Porsche dealer. However, if you are in Dubai I can loan you mine. Just drop me a PM with your contact details and I'll be glad to help.

    Finally, I'm not too sure of a motor oil switch in the engine. Unless you're talking about the oil filler cap which looks a bit different than your normal cap.

    What he said!!

    Congratulations on your purchase!

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    The clutch is not an issue at all. You just have to feel the car out, that's the key. I launch the CGT now with about 1,200 - 1,500 rpm. No issues at all. You can add gas like me to help the take off, or no gas at all. Up to you. I don't think there's an engine motor oil switch, unless like Ha said, you're referring to the motor oil cap, right in the middle of the carbon fibre brace. Enjoy the car in good health! Post pictures!

    Cheers,

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    The clutch is only an issue in two regards:
    1st. the engine has so little momentum that it instantly stalls and
    2nd. the ceramic material in the clutch, which gives it its strength and rigidity, doesn't transfer heat as well as metal. Therefore you shouldn't use too much gas when launching the car - the organic materials would get glased.

    Apart from that, I'd say the handling is more challenging than anything else! Enjoy the car and drive safely!

    Here are some pics before delivery..







    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    congrats alsahher. The CGt looking good in white
    and like everybody said its abt the feel when using the clutch. Just try getting use to the car in the back roads. U wouldnt want to stall the car in the middle of the traffic

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    Great color combination. I always liked Porsche white and the interior looks terrific against the white. Enjoy the beast.

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?




    Oh man, that's is a FINE car!!! Congrats!

    Great looking car!!! Never seen it in white and it look unbelivaible, congrats!!!

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    Congrats. Alsahher!

    White with the sand interior looks classy. Tell us how you think the clutch feels after a few drives. You're tempting me. There is one at my local dealer. . . .

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    Al,

    If you can, then you must!!!

    That's what Rennteam is about! Sharing your joy with us and meeting other members like Ha!
    Great stuff guys!
    So how was the CGT on the trakc BTW!
    Please tell me everything!!!
    This car is my goal, my grail!
    Is it hard to drive at the limit? Is it snappy?
    Does the Traction Control help? Do you feel a big difference when it's switched off?
    Thanks.

    The pleasure was mine Mo!

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    The car has so much grip on track and its bit tricky to handle with all that power...i have never driven it to its maximum limit.. although i did to my own limits.. i was with an instructor who was invited to train me more on track and on the road.. the instructor was Sven Herberger from http://www.the-instructors.de/ who really helped me with his experience to learn alot about the car..
    About the traction its very useful and i have never and even wont try to turn the traction off because the car is so powerful and its beyond my limits..

    Re: Took my CGT.. Advises plz?

    can you please post more pics???
