    Rampless car trailer

    Thanks very much guys for your feedback. Tilta seems about 9k and Futura about 14k. It would be great if those companies had outlets that hired their trailers. I tried the local hire places car trailers but their generic trailers really weren’t suitable for cars below about 140mm ride height (scrape front spoiler driving on or couldn’t open doors properly to get out once on) and the tie down points meant you were trying to do some magic to prevent straps rubbing guards and/or bumpers. Still swaying towards Futura at the moment
  2. I’m looking for a uncovered dual axle rampless car trailer and trying to sort through features and value for money. Was keen on Futura but not sure they are great value for money? I’ve seen another popular tilting brand that had quite a bit of surface rust yet was only 5 years old! Looked into Nevco are very $$ so out of consideration any thoughts?

    Car positioning jacks

    I’ve got the SCA set. Check the clearance height of the cars you intend to use with them and measure height of the jack area that needs to slide under the car. This brand won’t slide under/around rear of 993 turbo (standard ride height ) or GT3 as the castor wheel nut and arms are too high. On a 356 they work ok (not great) but floor must be very flat and clean as even small stones will foul you being able to push the car. And, while the actual jack mechanism will lift the car, the rest of the unit seems a bit flimsy even with 356 weight. Castors won’t swivel easily even with 356 weight. Lee M is right, don’t go cheap.
  4. After just driving (in this order) a 991.2 C4S, 991.1 GT3 CS, 997 GT2, and 991 GT3RS the sentiments above from Scott hold true for me too...within all of 100-200 metres behind the wheel, I picked the 997 GT2 as the car i wanted. Driving the RS after it didn’t change my mind. All the 991 cars were very refined, and fast, but the 997 just felt right to me. Now I want one.. Also the car that secondly most impressed me was the new C4S. It was very punchy with the new drivetrain. And just a great car to drive. I guess it’s similar to finding a new pair of runners - the ones that look best to you on the shelf, when you try them first on, then walk a few metres, you find that sometimes they just aren’t the best fit for you despite the marketing saying they are ‘the best’ or ‘top of the range’.
  5. The 400km/h speedo must be the highest one yet on a Porsche - I think the 918 [only] went to 350!? Does it really need the extra 50 over a 918?

    997 GT3 Market Watch

    What's the pecking order of the GT3s currently on the market? The grey/silver series 2 caught my eye but seems high $ relative to much lower km cars on the market and interior seems 'used'. What are these cars actually changing hands for at the moment?
  7. Must have done a lot of kms (160,000) in first few years before being covered for last 22...
  8. Those actively looking for a 968 may want to check out gumtree right now...
  9. How about the $150k 996TT in QLD then...have a read of that add as it apparently has over 850hp with engine rated at 1500hp and is quoted as fastest in country....

    F6 Project

    It certainly makes you realise just how fast/impressive the Mclaren 720S is...ET even quicker than this, and seems to do it easily.
  11. Life complete, and up to date, service history (without any excuses) = rare $ reflected a truely honest value for money car = rare in person, exceeded the condition regarding how it was advertised = rare road tested as new = rare An excuse free car = rare not a dollar to spend on it = rare all this = sold in under 24 hrs
  12. And....sold. In less than 24hrs!
  13. It would probably be a 'good' price if it was X51 optioned....nonetheless it's a great colour combo and optioned well
  14. I asked him the same...yes only a cab, in manual, Oz delivered.
  15. Thanks Rod C update: car was below expectations in condition and service records. It's left him disheartened and still looking for a manual cab (in genuinely good condition with service history)
