Agree that RS is special. After a year I still go into the garage just to stare it! The manual was the main draw for me to get the 991.2 GT3, otherwise I would have passed and waited for the next RS. In my opinion it really needs a bypass exhaust to spice up the sound. I was driving around town with my son yesterday and was shocked at how comfortable and quiet this car was compared to my RS and my prior GT3. its not as mechanical sounding as the previous 991 GT3. That car would start up make all sorts of noises, rattles and other sounds that were glorious, so I'm a bit surprised this new one is more quiet. However, I'm going to put on some miles this weekend and re-assess as the RPMs can start to elevate!

The sounds from the 99.1 GT3 were definitely ‘glorious.’ I hate to think they got rid of too much of it, if any really. I missed out on the .1RS, but looking forward to the .2RS.

On track, I activate track mode on tire pressure, take som air out - drive a stint, take air out and then doing a new measurement for track mode, after that I have no issues with tire pressure warnings. But the best thing have been a button och central consol with "manual tire pressure".

Holy crap, after an entire season of tracking I had no clue this existed! I'm going to search for come spring.

I find the .2 more refined than the .1. But- if you have the Manual you are just too busy enjoying the Clutch and Shifter that you forget all the things and the noises that the .1 offered, which was a good thing because the PDK was putting me to sleep

Good way to describe it. On my GT3.1, it made so many awesome raw rattles/grinds that people often asked "is your car ok?". That will not happen on the GT3.2. its definitely more refined.

The only thing is that you must remember to tell the PCM every time you turn on the ignition that you want to stay in track mode.
If you forget to do that then you are in relearning mode for quite a while. I don't use this feature any more.

A very good idea but so poorly implemented.

That's just moronic. All a result of the litigation culture, no doubt. But wish at least on track we could all be treated as adults and not a bunch of toddlers that cannot wipe their own noses.

Merry Christmas.

But that article is for the GT2 RS. I think it will be fifty fifty between Michelin and Dunlop on .2 RS.

For the 991.2 GT3 RS we have to wait a little bit more
