  1. Skip, Plima is right on the money. I drive my Mk.2 996 GT3 as a semi-daily drive with my wife. We have a good ride and can talk easily, while I keep it under 5,000 rpm. Above that the fun starts and all bets are off. The item I like about the 996 is it doesn't have any driver "help", you're on your own. They are a fun car.
  2. johnthomas...that is what I am going to do. I was surprised when a PCA approved shop talked about plugging the tire. I thought maybe because I was in the lower run groups that it would be good. But I am not going to "play" with it. Thanks for the comments and ideas. subject closed.Regards.
  3. Thanks for the comments. The nail is more towards the center so I think I will go with that.
  4. I would like to get some advise from the experts. I have a GT3 that now has a nail in the drivers' side rear tire. A local, experienced, PCA shop said that they could plug the tire and I would be good for DEs. While I am in the lower groups I was still a little concerned about taking a "plugged" tire on the track. Any thoughts? Thanks,
  5. Sorry - I've only driven her about 20 miles since doing the job - the weather over here is not good enough to venture too far in a car with no traction control :eek: However, I think I noticed more downforce on the rear end above 40mph ish - front felt a little lighter - which I suppose is kind of logical :unsure: I'll be out in her some more at the end of the week when the weather is due to improve and I'll let you know. Philip Thanks. Great looking car.
  6. Don't! It's soooo depressing :angry: It was glorious sunshine (but chilly at 1degree c) this morning - thought "great - get out and enjoy it!" by the time I went outside the sun had gone :help: I don't mean to be a copy cat - but I'm looking for a scrappy set of wheels I can refurb.....in black :thumbup: Philip Guys, Great photos and job on the wing. I have a red GT3 and am thinking of something similar. How did this impact the control on the track (i.e. at DEs). Thanks

    997 vs. 996 GT3

    I currently own a 996 GT3 and have been "tempted" to get a new 997 GT3. I went to a Skip Barber school at Lime Rock and drove the new 997, it was very impressive. If that difference is the same for the new 997 it would be great. I would be very interested in anyone's comments that have checked out the new 997. I know that it is still very new, but any comments would be good. Thanks,
  8. Kensai, I know that the GT3 RS is going to be great on the track. Have you seen anything on how it would be on the road? I have an '04 GT3 and it runs nice on the road and is strong on the track. I would be very interested in the GT3 RS if I could drive it on the weekends also.

    GT3 Tires

    I am looking at replacing my OE tires on an '04 GT3. They are Pilot Sport PS2 that were good on the street and effective the couple times I went to the track. Instead of the Pilots I am looking at Kumho ECSTA SPT. These had a good rating on Tire rack and are half the price of the Pilots. Has anyone had experience with the Kumho tires? Thanks,
  11. Thanks for the great feedback. I am participating in my local club's DE's, they are educational. Have you attended the PDE? If so was it worth the money to learn how to drive a GT3?
  12. I have beem going to Lime Rock with the different Porsche clubs. I didn't know if the PDE took it a level above that. Thanks for the comments.
  13. Thanks, I think I will give it a try.
  14. I am interested in attending the Porsche Driving School at the Barber Motor Sport track but I notice the courses are approximately $2-3K. Does anyone know of or heard of discounts or promotions to help offset this price? I was hoping since we had purchased the GT3 that maybe there was something out there. Thanks,
