Default My first GT car. 15 GT3


Iíve been a P guy for many years and getting back into track days. What better partner than a GT3. Very excited. Prior owner(s) are RL members. Click link below for some pics and build sheet.

Looking forward to sharing in the GT section.

Really pretty and love the yellow accents. Adventures beckon, lots of good info here for setting your car up.

Congrats!! Enjoy in good health.

...and as a track car, nothing comes close to Porsche GT cars. I am sure you know that.

Congrats and welcome to the GT club! Nothing like it and hopefully it puts a big smile on your face each time you drive. And, please, do drive it. The more you do the happier you'll be.

Beautiful car and impressive build. You're gonna love it. Black is my other favorite color on these cars.

Sincerely,

another Michael S.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'm going to use it a lot. I will need to swap the ceramics for steel as I'm going to do at least 15 track days this year. Prob more.

I have an 18' ATC open trailer on order which is almost ready and I'm signed up for VIR in early April. and the glen in May.

This car will be no garage queen!

Fun! Get an extra set of wheels and tires, you will need them. Check out info here on how to change CL's, you will need the right tools. It's not as bad as people make it out to be with them. I prefer a Snap on Torque Multiplier and use a reverse Irwin clamp for the brakes. Only bummer is the calipers as you have to remove them to change pads. You might find that changing to an aftermarket caliper is economical if you sell your PCCB's- if not, more research, hahaha.

Michael, I traded this car in to Tyler for the Lava stripper. Tough decision and I still sometimes wonder if I did the right thing. If the Lava hadn't been a 6 speed I'd still have this one. Enjoy.

Alan, I knew I would find the prior owner here. It's a beauty and I'm glad you traded it in. Great build and love the color combo.

I hope you enjoy your new car.

I watched this car for a week or so and I just knew I had to pull the trigger or I would lose it.
