Chin mid Dec would be good.

Chin in Dec is good weather and easy day trip from Orl. Maybe TRAKCAR will bring out his 6 Cup.

Hey Nick,

Here's my chance to thank you for sharing information on your hitch solution. I tracked down and installed the unit you sourced from Mike and it's worked out great for my GT3! I do get a few odd looks though when I'm using it.....

That looks awesome! I looked for a similar trailer as yours but I couldn't find one. Glad Mike took care of you, his hitch kit is well put together in my opinion.

Glad to hear she┤s running well! Do you have any vids of your car? This is my dreambuild on my GT2 so a little inspiration vid would do the trick

Thanks!

I don't have any recent videos. Every time I hit the track I bring it along, but totally forget to use it. It's been a real mental failure of mine, pretty much since I swapped out the rear sway bar back to OEM and got it handling right.

FYI here's an article my friend Peter wrote on the car for European Car magazine late last year.

DeputyDog95 has a thread about trailers that I posted info to- https://rennlist.com/forums/997-gt2-...e-trailer.html

Lots of good info and pics on the Wilwood style and some links to the Cayman forum for the hitch that I bought from "Mike Foxtrot" there.

Nick:

Do you use any spacers behind your RS98s? I assume you are running 245/325 on 19x9 and 19x12?

Thank you in advance. Truly amazing car!

RS98 wheels, 9 and 12 (wide body fitment), 265/30R19 fronts using RS fenders for clearance and OE rear spacer on the front. Clears perfect. 😁

It's not as bad as people think. Way cheaper than I would have thought myself. For example, much cheaper than building my Skyline GT-R but far better results.

It's been rock solid as well since the build. Oil change and brake fluid bleeds, that's about it.

That's the Champion Motorsport build quality. I know it well
