I had one of the best runs ever. Chasing a red 997.2 Cup on slicks. GoPro shut itself off before I hit record and I didn't notice..... Yes, moron, I know.

Default Better time than yesterday by a second!!!!

Now that I am getting the hang of this car, I think I have another second in it for me to extract on the 3.1 mile MSR track.

When it gets a little warmer put the slicks on, you will shave time.

I don't think it's an issue. If I recall correctly, Macca added 500 mL to his after his European tour. My mechanic said it is a non issue and as someone commented above, new motor, not totally sealed yet.

Thank you. My goal is to crack 2:19:xx but it'll be difficult. Jason Hart cracked 2:18:xx yesterday but he is a champ and races along Patrick Long. This car is sick fast. The hype is true, and more.

Sam, do we know what a 997.2 GT3 was capable of at that track in the hands of a pro like your instructor? Just curious how the old metal compares to the new....

Thanks. Sorry I left early, was bummed about the "reduced engine performance" fault. It will likely be fuel related. Hopefully we can chat sometime soon.

He doesn't recall those times off the top of his head (just texted him) but in an 06-09 cup, his time is 2:11. He holds the track record for a Cup car.

But Macca added 500ml for 3000 kms, not 200 like you
