    Black dust on my GT3

    1250071091114GT3 001.jpg1250071103783GT3 002.jpg1250071112547GT3 003.jpg1250071185258GT3 004.jpg1250071195172GT3 005.jpg

    As you can see on the  pictures there's some black dust. Everytime after been on a ride with my GT3 on the road or track, i'm having these quind of black dust all over the back of my car.

    I look at my tires and yes they are dead but i don't believe that this comes from there. Most of the time the road or track is dry.

    Do you also notice that on your Gt3 or just Porsche car.

    On black you do not see it that well but on yellow it occurs pretty badly.

    Nothing to worry about, Cram. Smut from burnt gasoline - the harder you drive the more smut covers the rear Smiley I have the same (especially after driving on the track) and I already wondered whether the engine throws out too much oil through the pipes (which is not the case - 1.3 L after 14,000 km, whereof 5,000 km track). I found there is a correlation between the colour on the inside of the exhaust tip and the amount of smut on the rear: the cleaner the exhaust (white) the darker the rear Smiley

    BTW I'm curious to hear how your Baby behaves on these wheels (compared to the stock wheels)  - would appreciate a small report from you Smiley

    It does behave pretty well. Actually i've ben really surprise in positiv. The car is faster in curves and on track ( every race track i've been for my race, i gain 3 to 4 second with the car compare to last year.), the tires last much longer.
     

    You have a much better feeling in the steering wheel. What else can i say. The best is that you get your impression while i'll be at the Nordschleif in september.

    Excellent, Cram - nothing beats a live test on NoS Smiley "Ein jeder lobt was Nürburgring erprobt" Smiley

    Your assessment sounds very promising. I'm seriously considering to swap my second set of GT3 rims for the BBS rims. 3-4 seconds on a normal circuit of 4 km or so is immense Smiley

    The main thing is that they are 18'' rims and not 19''

    Porker, I'm beginning to think you'll have to go to Spa in future instead of the Nürburgring. Smiley

    There's too much competition there, on and off the track. Smiley

    Combination of rubber from tyres and exhaust fumes, it's the only thing is can be, not forgetting brake dust thrown everywhere.

    The cause plenty of right foot actionSmiley tyres grip and dry surfaces wear tyres faster, even more so if your heavy accelerating and heavy breaking.
