2RS still wins. You can hammer it all day long for years at the same pace no problem. SVJ can barely make 2 laps before brake fade. And, the Ferrari is up for a proper race with the 2RS but the 2RS still wins on most tracks. By the way, all three are amazing.

Tough to know how it would have gone if all were stock on the same tires. I think it would have been close between the 2RS, Pista, and Lambo. The other factor is that the driver was only allowed 2 laps per car, which is not enough time to learn them at all. While apparently he had a lot of laps in the Senna. So with more seat time in the RS, Lambo, and Pista the times might have been a bit closer to the Senna, though I think the Senna still would have run away with it.

Weĺre talking one lap, not one track day.

Anyone have an ETA on the CF steering wheel parts for the 2RS yet?

i think someone here - on RL said he got a letter that his new steering wheel is ready or something like that - that was a couple of days ago.

That's a big *** lie. Straight up. No tune, or any relevant upgrade. Car had alignment from Manthey on standard suspension, nothing that crazy, not even short track setup, had the tank (just adds weight) and maybe the wing support from the gt3 Rs.
If it had the kw and aero package as well as a tune, Senna gap wouldn't even exist.

Definitely not the full MR kit, if we're talking about the car in this video.


"Tuned by Manthey Tuning [sic], so it's not a standard 911 GT2 RS, is it. They tuned the suspension."... means nothing.
"not nice in a straight line with the amount of camber and pressure" - But the suspension is adjustable as standard.
Wish they'd actually state exactly what was done to the car in the video, because it's not the MR, which sits a lot lower.

This was posted on the FB owners group page couple of days ago. Can't confirm though. Can only hope!

That's helpful I sent that along to my SA but it states in the letter it is the customer assistance in the UK and I am not sure if the availability timeline will be the same here in the US. I will let you know the response I receive back from my SA.

Addendum: My SA just responded today, Sunday the 28th, and said he checks weekly and will forward the letter on to see what feedback he receives.

My RS arrived a week ago, If they’re still delivering cars with no carbon wheels, I would think we’re in for a bit of a wait.

According to Brooks, The Dobre bros took their Pista to the Dragstrip, and were able to score a 10.1 @ 141-142

That is my friends car in the Video. It had a Manthey GEO set up only that was it, apart from Cup 2 Rs. On the day the set up was not running at its optimum, for what ever reason.
