Will be comparing this beast to the M3 soon

Bit the bullet and got a dedicated track car. The M3 was amazing, but it needs to keep its job as a family car with a warranty.

Amazing car

A friend on mine went from 997 GT3 to E92 M3 for the track and was a little let down by the stock M3. But I guess that isn't really a surprise, different animals.

Will you run with track insurance, or go without?

Yes, will be using track insurance, but few will actually cover the full value this year.

I'll tell you once I figure it out. Turns out to be not so bad, except you have to life weight off each corner while tightening to 440ft-lbs. Keeps the nuts well lubed...er, that came out wrong...It's a one person job with the right tools/technique.....er that came out wrong too.

I've always been curious about that. Again, awesome car! Those GT3s are always wicked fast.
