Yeah, good luck carrying a surf board to the beach in the Speedster. Is that what they are trying to get at with the surfing interludes? Or perhaps driving the Speedster is like catching the perfect wave, brah!

The new hardware is the easy part - the electronics integration will be the tough part...

if NA includes Canada, i can tell you there are roughly 235 VIP's left in the US 918 program, so assuming if all take their allocation, not a lot left to go around.

you might be less keen if the 992 gt3 needed the gt3 r's rebuild schedule!

The only reason the speedster got itbs was because the r engine and the new gt3 and Rs engine made less power given the air intake inlet restrictions. Put this engine or the itb on the .2 rs and it will make quite a nice bit more power.
I'm actually excited to see good tuners do their thing. Proper sized itb + a proper unrestricted rsr size exhaust on an rs would be mental.
