    Here's a new convenient (but expensive) option for centerlocks:

    Brilliant! But wasn't there a geared (planetary gear), torque multiplying socket from Porsche? For the CGT?

    Everything looks great but for that engine cover.  Did they run out of development budget?

    Re: 992 GT3

    AGATE is the default choice. 

    Agate grey.  Chrome window trim.  Naturally aspirated.  Some questionable front end styling touches.  More performance than I can handle.  A nice launch vehicle.

    That sounds like what is sitting on my driveway.  Maybe I'm in the minority here, but even if they had a spare one to sell to me, I can't get too excited.  (Sour grapes?)

    Yes, but it is no longer in production, is extremely expensive, and uses a reaction arm that is placed between the wheel spokes (doesn’t work on all wheels) and still requires someone to sit in the car and hold the brake pedal for front wheels (no e-brake) or use a brace between brake pedal and seat.  This thing is better (but requires special Centerlock bolts).

    This place sells a tool like the factory CGT tool:

    Re: 992 GT3

    I'm trying to decide between Gentian blue and Iris blue (PTS) for my GT3 Touring order.

    Also, I agree that the Neodyme wheels are too saturated and would prefer a "white gold" color ala GT2RS Weissasch alloys.

    Here's a shot of Iris blue with "white gold" wheels on a GT2RS from instagram:

    Re: 992 GT3

    Something I forgot to mention - when I was at the 'ring last, there were some guys filming a blue one with Kevin Estre for a piece for Porsche France.  They were doing some bits where they going over the features etc, and had the engine running and were revving it with the exhaust setting on/off.  I thought it sounded pretty good - better than my (OPF) RS. Maybe they got some better sound out of a revised setup.

      Correct!  What a mess. Know your audience. Almost as bad as f1 in car footage for a long boring straight and just when you want to experience the braking and high speed turn they go to outside cameras every friggin time. 


    Re: 992 GT3

    Agree, not one of Porsche’s best.  My favorite one was years back when a beautiful girl stroked the flank of 911 and the spoiler elevated.blush

    Ooh nice kiss have to say the new gold wheels are a big improvement on the old ones. Much better colour and finish.

    yeah yeah, neodym or whatever.

    Re: 992 GT3

    This colour would look smashing on the touring. I'm not sure yet how I feel about the gold wheels. In some pictures they're ok and in others they look too coppery. Seems like it's a tough shade to capture in pictures.
