BBS RS-GT lightweights, 18", I forget the depths but a little wider than stock. I've been very pleased with these wheels and they are light but this week at Imagine Auto I picked up a set of DyMag Carbon Fiber wheels and they weighed like 5lbs, it was sick! I think the set was $7-8K, the titanium bolts alone were $800'ish. They are going on Stephen's 997 Turbo.
that is one sweet ride. wheres the supercharger and springs
cant wait to see it at vegas!
No supercharger, I haven't decided what I will do engine-wise if anything in the future since I can't have the GT3 motor.
I am not doing springs, I am doing the Bilstein PSS Damptronic system for PASM. My set is in and sitting at Bilstein in Los Angeles awaiting engineer approval to be released to me. I was bummed that I didn't have it for this event, but maybe my next event I can try that out...
do those graphics stay on all the time? that's a lot of yellow! Which LSD did you put in?
I just put the graphics (magnetic) on for the Club Race weekend because Fios is a sponsor, they are good up to 140mph at least. Yes, that is a lot of yellow, but I could probably find a few more places for some. LSD is the Quaife unit, did you miss the front page news item from yesterday with all the play by play pictures???
The LSD is tracking extremely well- at least 3 seconds better on his circuit early today. So far he is passing everything in his path including vipers, C6 vettes, and a 996 GT3 that couldn't shake him and had to let him go by. He pulled out of corner so strong that the C6 couldn't catch up all the way down the straight. More to come when he gets home and starts typing...
Whoo-wee. I'm getting all lathered up and can't wait for my AX tomorrow.
My first question is how are the GT3 seats? I am wondering how comfortable they might be for cross country trips?
The BBS look great. In fact, your ride in yellow is one of the most inspiring. I sure like the seats in yellow as well. Now, about those brakes . . .
Why can't you have a 3.8L? It seems as though maybe you should have gone with a F-L GTR and just gotten it all done and over with. But then, it seems that you enjoy making this a project car in evolution.
It sure is some "project car!"
About those wheels made from carbon fibre. Now, those sound like pure indulgence!
