I know, I owned 2 of them. In the end, it does not matter. All that matters is that the car you acquire meets your needs, expectation and leaves you feeling very happy to drive it.
How does one manage torque in a GT2RS?

Quite a few nice elephant racing bits. Even tastier than the GT3 secret sauce lol, as a GT3 can upgrade to these as well.

I believe I am a slightly better driver than my friend. He has a Manual GT3, and I have a PDK GTS. I have done plenty of driving courses. It was more about hardware. I won't upset anyone anymore, I will keep my mods to my self.
Just PM me if you want to know.
Not my car but that's installed on a base .2 I believe. The guy who has them done is extremely satisfied.

One can equally point out that one will never experience 550Nm/405 ft lb of torque and equally those owners may enjoy that experience. The point is people enjoy what moves them and buy accordingly.

Keep in mind the GTS makes more power than the GT3 over nearly 6000 RPM whereas the GT3 makes more power than the GTS only over 2000 RPM. That is why the GTS is so potent and thats why in a sprint scenario the car with the better driver will come out on top (as I pointed out previously).

"All that matters is that the car you acquire meets your needs, expectation and leaves you feeling very happy to drive it" - agreed .
