    Seeing your old friend surrounded with flowers really brightened my morning. Thanks watt, so happy to see you make it that far after your procedure.

    Got a big lecture from the Wound Dr. yesterday about keeping the rest of my feet - new replacements for my custom orthotics, etc.  He says saving my feet and 4-8 hours on the track are competing goals -- but hiking is Life so we will manage the risk until we can'tSmiley

    Watt, I went up to 10300 feet hoping to see over to your side. 

    Toward the North too many more mounts to pass.

    Towards the south only one last glacier and then It should be a smooth walk down

    Gorgeous Eric!  Reminds me when we hiked near the Italian border into Italy but more majestic.  Still some time before we get up to see you - every time I over do it [a feature of my personality always using willpower to push too far], I set myself back, but smaller issues each time!  We still haven't passed our old friend at 9500'.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Comments on Pista vs GT2RS:  

    1. Pista definitely quicker at the top over 100 mph and 0-140 [no launch control ever used, either or any car], presumably the lower weight, higher power/weight helps.
    2. Both are shockingly fast!!
    3. Few 500 mile roads trips, then 2000 miles to LA coming up so we'll see if the Pista has the suspension solidity of the GT2RS at high speed over drainage dips in the Panamint Valley -  nothing beats the progressive stiffness of the GT2RS so far, no bottoming out.
    4. Wheel Enhancement tells me the Carbon wheels are stronger than alloy and way stronger than the Mags I replaced with alloy on the RS, as I worried about hitting pot holes in back roads of the Deserts at speed and cracking a Mag.  We'll find out.
    5. Does Pista have the robustness and reliability to match the RS?  The brake recall led me to top off my brake fluid before road tripping, the problem seems contained but I sure hope I don't lose my brakes at 165 mph.....
    6. For me, the Pista is much more attractive, as I just can't stand the Porsche ricer wings on RS's - the primary reason I sold it [since I don't track in the US]. The RS in central NV, snowflakes falling, alloys in place, nothing like Cup 2s at 39F!:

    IMG_3221.JPG

    I like the Pista's looks better, although it tends to looks like a space ship

    Beautiful flowers watt, and the crew certainly live a full life with you up until their last resting place. 

    That GT2 looks really good, what's the color? 


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    I think it's called Brewster Green, but really British Racing Green

    DSC_9256-1600x900.jpg

    Just dark enough to make the contrast with the carbon less cartoonish than e.g. white and lighter colours

    DSC_9254-1600x1068.jpg


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    That is Brewster Green.

    Brewster Green is different than British Racing Green in Porsche's palette. Paint code 22D vs 21D.

    Brewster is more 'inky', darker and deeper. BRG is lighter, brighter.

    Between those two I would choose the Porsche anytime.

    I can understand why the Italian car styling, which tends to be predominantly ostentatious has its fans around the world but by comparison the GT2 RS looks like a real weapon and a real man's car Smiley. On top this the Porsche in the picture  has a very nice exterior colour and wheel choice.

    Haha,

    Reginos PORSCHE needs customers like you, drunk on the brandsmiley  I myself am a recovered PORSCHE drunk, having owned 67, before the 992 and the GT  RICER wings got me sober.

    But post pix of your GT2RS, with the glorious wing!  I'm not faulting the rest of the car, that's why I bought it.  Except the stupid centre locks.

    So embarrassing, and ostentatious [to quote you:)] around town:

    IMG_3173 2.JPG

    And the new RS's, .... let's not discussangry

    Much as Madame loves her 2012 C2S Cab, My next GT2 was the pinnacle of the brand, and all the wing good looks can handle,  it's been down hill from here stylistically, and all new features and performance superfluous, at least on the street.

    Somewhere back in this thread, I was asked to rate my favourites, 72S, 996 GT2, 997 GT3RS and GT2.

    IMG_3478 2.jpg

    Besides the wings, PORSCHE hates its long time customers -- that's clearly demonstrated by centre locks which only bewitch the new fools, and are ostentatiously omitted from Ferraris.Smiley

    Your white 997 GT2 is another top Porsche Smiley You should have kept it.

    Perhaps, Porsche should have released a 991 GT2, toned down from the RS visually and performance wise and more suitable for the street. Nevertheless, I believe the GT2 RS is the pinnacle of the 911 story. I'd like one in GT Silver, please Smiley
