    waiting for PDK:

    RC, taking Florida drivers as representative of the US is like taking Roman drivers as representative of Europe.

     

    How about Californians?

    Totally missed my point. Go watch Top Fuel drag racing in person and get back to me. It is as American as Bull riding vs Bull fighting. If you think going fast for four seconds is easy you are very wrong my friend. I’m not talking street cars or 0-300 kph. Try 500 kph in under four seconds.  Until you witness this in person you can’t imagine it. 

    And you might try watching a NASCAR race once too if you think ovals are for pussies. Not my cup of tea but sometimes more action than F1.

    ^ Completely agree with you regarding dragracing as a sport. It takes a lot of skill and nerve.

    Yep, dropping the clutch in my 997GT3 and get a good getaway requires some skill.
    Doing the same thing in my 991.1RS not so much  :-)

    Have you seen that Chiron drag racing video? Pathetic. I get it, the owner wants to learn how to launch the car in the best way but why use a drag strip for that? His dealer can easily check with the factory, they have very good technical support there (from what I heard), no need to stress the car on a drag strip.

    It doesn’t matter where in US, the fact is that Our country has absolutely the WORST drivers as a majority, of any civilized nation on Earth, only some 3rd World places can compete with the idiots driving cars here.

    Do not argue this, you know in your heart it is true.

     

    Not really. When have you been to South America, Eastern Europe and/or the Middle East/Asia lately? Smiley Smiley

    The main problem in the US is the traffic density: You don't have a couple of cars on a road but masses of cars and when some of the drivers mess up, well... Smiley

    The key word I have stressed was : “civilized” , I did not have in mind 3rd World countries.

    I would also argue your opinion that US drivers (again, majority not all) are better then the majority in Eastern Europe.

    No.

    The race car version of the GT3RS is the GT3R.

    Race car version of the GT3 is the GT3 Cup.

    For someone wanting an entry level with low running cost, the GT4 CliubSport.

    Does that mean you will get back the car, or does it belong to insurance now ??

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    It is the insurance companys car now.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Great news, do you plan to buy it back?

    Not sure if that is good news or bad news.

    Good news they caught the bastards. Question is do you still want it and can you actually get it? I’m sure there is a precedent for buying a car back after insurance has paid out. Not sure what the process would be however.
