  1. I just specd one as near as possible to my 991.2 and it was $60K more drive away in VIC. There are a few extras for that like the FRP bonnet and lightweight battery while some of what I optioned on the .2 is now standard. Even the GT3 has now succumbed to the silly start stop. Really how many drive one daily in heavily congested traffic?
  2. It should still be under Porsche full factory 3year warranty no matter who sells it.
  3. I believe the 1.2 GT3 ran on cup 2 tyres where the 1.2 RS ran on Cup 2 “R” tyres so you expect a bigger difference than if they ran on the same tyres. I doubt there will be as much difference in the 992 times unless they pull the old tyre compound trick again.
  4. Have you looked at Works Bell. You may also want to check the legality (roadworthiness) of having a detachable steering wheel in a registered car.
  5. Would be an even better shot if the headlights were on high beam😁
  6. I hear the comment that the faster car will find a way past all the time but I would like to suggest that if a car was not behind a few corners ago and it is there now then it is lapping faster which does not necessarily mean in a straight line so to help slower straight line speed cars that are faster overall just easing of the throttle a bit down the straight makes it much easier for them to get by in the safest location. Yes the faster lapping car can probably get past somewhere around the track but best to invite them to do it down the straight. From my experience the single best thing a slower car can do is be predictable and sticking to the correct line is the best way to do this even if you hold up the car behind for a few corners. Following a faster car for a few corners can be educational and following a slower one is often entertaining😁
  7. All the PS4s I have purchased in 19 and 20 are made in France.
  8. Tire rack says do not mix as does my Porsche manual. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=26 I have had a bad experience by mixing what appeared to be identical tires on the same axel with the only difference being the country they were made in. USA and Japan. The FWD car was evil to drive and upon enquiring with the manufacture they confirm construction differences and gave me FOC a tyre to match the one I just purchased.
  9. I have heard that from a couple of people but race engines with solid lifters have always been more “heavy metal” sounding than the placid road oriented hydraulic lifter engines. After all one of the features of hydraulic lifters is their relative quietness. If you want a race car for the road then best to have a race engine and not an over stressed road engine being operated beyond is limits acting like a ticking time bom.
  10. It’s functional even if only by a fleas nat of nothing a proper heat wrap would be much better. Heat pickup by the fuel rail or fuel lines or anything else including heat generated by the fuel pump is a major issue and fuel temperatures of over 50C are very problematic. The lower the tank gets the bigger the problem as less fuel to absorb the heat. Moral of the story is don’t expect to climb a mountain on a hot day with not much fuel in the tank. It will get hot and boil in the tank at the fuel pump inlet at the lower atomespheric pressure.
  11. Hi Arne, If you have a couple of spots at the Northo on Friday myself and Mrs Racen would love to meet up with everybody there over an ale or two.
  12. Is it illegal to just turn your low beams on and off or is it only illegal to use the flash function that operates the high beams at on coming traffic? I’m surprised that there is a cop doing the speed limit. All the ones around here drive over it.
  13. Looked like a lesson on how to avoid getting to o close to the apex.
