Default Manthey Racing components in U.S.A.

While in Germany for European Delivery this past September, we paid a visit to Manthey Racing. It had been four years since we last visited and my goodness their new service center is unreal. Before heading out on track later during the trip, we had a prototype version of their GT2RS extended water tank was installed on our GT2RS along with a set of Michelin Sport Cup 2R tires.



The next few days were spent testing the Manthey Racing water tank setup on our U.S. spec GT2RS with solid results at both the Nurbugring & Spa. The fast layout of Spa really exposed the need for additional capacity, especially as track temps were high and sessions were long running with RMA Trackdays.



The four other GT2RS owners at Spa were having to refill their factory water tanks after each session while we went all day (6 sessions) on a single fill up using the Manthey Racing unit.



Since our time overseas, we've been working out a plan to bring these tanks to the U.S.A. And happy to report we've just received our first batch of Manthey Racing GT2RS extended water tanks - these 10 pre-sold units are the first to arrive stateside, with exception to the unit in our GT2RS.

It’s worth noting that Manthey Racing themselves do not sell components in the U.S. market – we are now your source for these components in America.



Manthey Racing's plug and play GT2RS water tanks nearly triple the capacity of the factory system. Anyone that has driven a GT2RS knows the importance of the charge cooling system and the car’s thirst for distilled water! The intercooler sprayers do an incredible job of keeping temperatures on target.



We're proud to offer this solution here in the U.S.A. for GT2RS owners. These water tanks, along with the entire Manthey Racing catalog, are now available through 311RS. This includes the upcoming GT2RS MR package that was recently shown in detail at the Essen Motor Show. This same package is what Manthey Racing used on their GT2RS to go faster than any other road-legal lap car around the Nordschleife with a 6:40.3.



Our next batch of Manthey Racing GT2RS water tanks are due in a few weeks time. Two of the ten units are spoken for - they sell for €990 + shipping and duties, with this first batch of ten coming out to ~$1,400USD delivered to each GT2RS owner. Please contact us or click here today if you'd like to reserve a unit from our next shipment.

We're happy to discuss the full Manthey Racing catalog, so give us a call any time. And we'll have more to share from our project GT2RS as the car develops prior to our first track time of the year on February 25th.

-Ryan

I would like to know if the water tanks shown above by OP are made out of aluminum painted in black? Please advise.

Drive safe,

Although I assume that the water tanks are very light in aluminum, given the density of carbon fiber, their weight could be reduced by approximately 50% by making them in carbon.

The aero upgrades are only available as part of the entire GT2RS MR package i.e. 3way KWs, brake pads & lines, etc. Their reasoning for this is that the aero upgrades improve the downforce so much that the other items are required. That said, I will inquire about the rear wing and canards for use on a GT3RS and report back.

Water tank is aluminum and coated black - correct.

I'm sure that would be the case. The tanks weigh 5lbs as is, with most of the weight coming from the connection piece to the factory tank, which would remain aluminum.

Yes - they're Ç1,999.

Great to know there is now a U.S. based company to source these products. Good luck in this new venture.

Ditto. I'm referring to the seat cushions covered in pepita which I'm assuming are Porsche OEM. Thank you.

EDIT: I see the price above so ignore my request, but please confirm the cushions and material are OEM. Thanks.

Can you get us the MR brake pads for steel brakes for a .2 3RS?

I saw on a V-Log that the .2 GT3 RS could only take the front MR brake pads b/c the rear pads messed with the ABS system. Any news regarding that?

Those pads are available - I'll report back with info regarding your question about the rears. I hadn't heard that until now personally.

An update to the questions asked above:

1) The Pepita seat inserts are built using factory Porsche Pepita material and cushions.
2) On PCCB 991.2 GT3RS, front and rear pads are available. Only the front Manthey pads are available for 991.2 GT3RS units with steel brakes, with new rears are in development to cope with the new computer system.

A few pictures pulled from the catalog for reference:

Thanks for the follow-up. Definitely a more economical way to get OEM pepita + cushions than going the CXX route.

The Manthey Racing mag BBS wheels are available - they are the same size, offset, and weight as the factory Weissach wheels. The aero covers however, are only available with the complete MR package. Believe me, we have already asked!
