  1. Paul - that surprises me. I expect that the roll cage is designed to be flush with the ceiling on a non-sunroof car. Since all the US GT3's will have a sunroof, I expect that the ceiling will be too low to fit the cage...
  2. Jim - I'd be worried. They are sweet cars with several advantages over your car. Check this site: http://www.titanic.co.uk/GT3/
  3. Don - The pictures are not all in the same scale - note that the 18" wheel looks bigger than the 19"
  4. An improper kinematic toe setting on the 993/996 cars also will cause the driving behavior you described (changing steering direction with throttle application or lift).
  5. I'm very glad that your dealer is replacing your engine, since you're known to race it. I've heard about alot of warranty claims refused for rather specious reasons (including mild DE use), so your case is refreshing (although I'm sorry you needed a new engine in the first place).
  6. Welcome aboard! Very pretty coupe - Grant 73 Carrera RS Lightweight Replica (Carbon Fiber) 96 993 C2 (Polar Silver/Full Red Leather)
  7. Carl - Yes, that's the car. Builder drove from his home in Montreal to Tampa and then to Denver to deliver it to me. It was also the car at Hershey, PA last year (only two trips the car's ever taken).
  8. Loren- Thanks for adding the photos! -Grant
  9. Well, I just bought a sweet new track car (street legal) to replaced my burned 951S. It weighs 1,890 lbs based on a 73T with a 73RS motor (2.7L magnesium with MFI, racing headers, 9.5:1 CR and 240hp with 8,000 rpm redline). All racing Bilstein coilovers (no torsion bars) Charlie sway bars, etc. Engine and tranny are visible from inside car (through lexan window). Only glass is windshield (rest is Lexan). Here are a few photos: :jump: edited by Loren to show images
  10. Thanks, Don! Some great stuff there (love the 73RS videos and sounds)! :thumbup:
  11. Very nice! That's a very early 911 (or is it a 912?)... :clapping:
  12. Nice, Chad! Are your brakes upgraded or just painted red? If upgraded, what are you using?
  13. Interestingly, a British magazine traded off the new Pilot Sport 2's that came on the car for the Rossos because the Pilots were too squirrely at the limit on the track. I was surprised that the Michelins weren't superior...
  14. Don - It doesn't need to be original to be cool (and worthy of a post here). Looks like a sweet car to me! -Grant
