Default Tow hook

What are people using for tow hooks in front and Behind?
I have seen the rennline and they look nice, just a little pricey.
I might consider a fabric one instead of the traditional folding type, although the hard metal one I think is probably best especially when using it as a tie down on a trailer .

OEM! Bought a 2nd one so I could run 2 at once when needed.

Rennline REV1 is pretty much the standard. It's really awesome. I'd also highly recommend their tie downs.

If you are unlucky the tow hook will catch the fence when you are spinning...

These might be an alternative:

Im using the RSS Tow hook.

Good product, good quality and only one I could find that was anodized black so matches with the look.

That Gopro mount is neat. Didnĺt know they had such an attachment. Will have to get one for mine. What does the video from that angle look and sound like?

Talking

About the second time you hit your shin on the factory mount you'll get a Rennline.

I prefer the view from mounting on the hood, but it's a cool alternative spot.

Nice! I was just thinking, how cool if you could get a black one.

Thanks for the kind words! The RSS Tow Hook Loops are Powder coated RED or BLACK, the threaded shaft is also Powder Coated BLACK for an extra durable finish.We also offer a Brushed Stainless Steel Version in limited runs.

Hi, Mike at RSS. Have you confirmed the tow hook fits on .2? Reason I ask is that I purchased the Rennline (yeah, shame on me) tow hook and it doesn't work. The new number cover is deeper and when threading in doesn't go in far enough (to tighten). Don't know that I want to put shims.

When I was at a trackday at Spa (loaner 991TT), the organizer said to place the single OEM tow hook in the either the front or rear of the car, depending on which way you expected to exit the track
