Default Otto Car Club Porsche 997 GT3 RS with BBS E88, BBi Roll Bar, Recaro Seats


Otto Car Club Porsche 997 GT3 RS BBi Roll Bar & Recaro Seat Install



Recently, we track prepped this beautiful Silver Porsche 997 GT3 RS with BBS E88 for belonging to Eli Kogan from OTTO Car Club, a unique social club and storage facility for car collectors and enthusiasts in Arizona. We installed our our BBi Autosport StreetCup Roll Bar powder coated in Satin Black, Schroth GT3 Harnesses, and a Recaro Profi SPG racing seat mounted on our BBi Seat Base & Slider Kit to provide proper restraint and support. We finished it off by dialing in the suspension with our corner balance and alignment setup. Here are some pictures we would like to share!!!

Any of you regularly run a Halo on the street?

I've been thinking of ditching my elephant ears for something more but still love to street the car regularly during dry weather.

This car is one of my absolute favorites. I still prefer the 997.1 to the .2.
