Fantastically cool. Are you also planning any extreme changes to suspension, exhaust, etc or keep it standard?

Fantastic!

On another note - when I ordered my "individualized tread plates" I was told in no uncertain terms that no fonts outside the normal MS batch was possible... Apparently that wasn't strictly true... It also took them 8 weeks to confirm the final apperance. Maybe Hr Steiner was busy with another project...Haha! Looks fabulous!

I'm sure I said Martini "stuff"... ;-)
Just wanted to wait til it was all confirmed and under way,

Thanks for all the positive comments from various people (Even Trakcar...)

Once Seb and Mika911 have tested the Manthey setups, I may well go with that. One of the reasons I went with the steel (homologated) cage was to keep options open, and also because it didn't feel right adding a non-racing Ti cage to a wannabe racer spec.

And mooty, you're in a Catch 22 situation there...you can't be like footsoldier if you do grow up :-)

What a great response.!
I absolutely love everything about the classic Martini theme..Despite being totally OTT, its rather bizarrely tastefully done IMHO..Probably due to the unashamedly obvious inference to past Porsche motorsport glories.
I'd happily drive that on the public highways, however i'm hardly the shy retiring type..
I'd have preferred if you'd gone for a more Scottish theme..aka the whole car painted in a Tartan pattern to complement your kilt..When i do my custom GT3 RS i intend to paint it with the Welsh dragon holding a daffodil and leek in its claws..
Do you think thats a good idea..?

This is perfect. Cars are meant to be driven, played with, modded. Just say no to bubble wrapping.

Well done Footsolider.
