    Even noticed this with my ancient 997 Turbo. Not much advancement I guess.

    TPMS - Totally Porsches Most Stupid (system ever)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    IMG_5087.JPG

    The TPMS came back to working order later that same day as I was leaving our dinner restaurant's underground garage.

    The next day, it continued to work in "race track" mode even though I had to sun-soak the front tires in order to increase them from 25 psi to work around the 26 psi minimum demanded by that setting.  I wanted 25 psi (cold) for the fronts to keep them from exceeding the 31-32 range as the track session wore on.

    Everything was going well until I re-inflated the tires to head home yesterday.  After that, even after stopping for lunch and later for fuel, the TPMS stayed in its AFU mode all the way home.

    I'll have to get the car out tonight or tomorrow to see how much cycling of the systems it takes to self-correct again.

    "Totally Porsche's Most Stupid", indeed.

    Yep, sounds familiar. I've had red warnings for low pressure in road mode even with 2.6 bar in (+0.3 at the back).

    Seriously, I even have those TPMS warning in my GT3 Cup car!

    It is really stupid! I had engineers set my initial tire pressure before I go out and after a quarter lap a warning would already be there.

    this system is really funny to stay polite. I can't have a session with working tyre pressure system Smiley

    Yeah, they look nice and are very light, but I think they are too much of a liability for anyone other than the very wealthy on this type of car.

    I doubt anybody but the very wealthy can afford the car...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I'm so glad I got an extra set of alu rims for my GT2RS...

    TPMS: Some say it will reset faster if you change tyre type from summer to winter and back to summer again. I cannot say that it helped me but who knows, maybe it works for someone else.

    Yeah, I do that pretty frequently.  At one point you could get TPMS into some broken limbo state by forgetting to confirm yes to track mode when starting the engine.  On mine this would result it in going into learning mode, but it would get stuck there and never come out.  If you switch to winter and immediately back to summer, the resulting learning phase is usually completed in less than a minute of driving.

    Just watched this.

    https://www.motortrend.com/cars/porsche/911/2018/2018-porsche-911-gt2-rs-weissach-edition-first-test-review/

    Randy Pobst t calls it the best 911 ever.

    Usual debate about which tyre etc etc but beats the 720S in his hands.

    Video behind a pay wall at present but no cost 14 day subscription option if you do not want to wait for the YouTube release.

    Subdued lighting, poor quality camera (iphone) and photographer.

    Btw, if it says "Miami" on the sticker then that's what it is.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    It's how my GT2RS would look at the moment. I just changed my colour to Miami Blue. With gold wheels though
