Crazy Track build that's street legal still.

I don't think this has been posted here yet. Pretty SICK build IMO and still street legal with working power windows, locks and A/C. The rear suspension is just SICK and it's done right with reinforced rear shock tower mounts.



























Cage:

Modeled after the M3 GTR
Tig Welded Chromoly tubing
Tied into rear subframe – rear subframe now bolts to the cage.
All pick up points have been boxed and reinforced


Interior:

Sparco seats EVo 2
Schroth competition harness
Fire extinguisher
Custom door panels with alcantara lining



Suspension:

GMG spec’d JRZ RS Pro dampers
Full coil over in the rear
GMG rear link kit for toe and camber
Rear subframe solid mounted
Diff solid mounted
Engine solid mounted ( Turner Motorsport mounts)
Trans solid mounted ( Turner Motorsport mounts)
Sway bar upgrade front and rear

Engine:

Custom remap by GIAC
GMG Center X section
GMG World Challenge Sport Mufflers ( axle back system)
Engine oil cooler upgrade
SMG trans cooler upgrade


Brakes:

Stoptech 15” front 6 piston
Stoptech 14” rear 4 piston
Endless brake pads
Endless RF 650 brake fluid
Steel braided lines


Wheels

GMG fully forged monoblock 19x9 and 19x11

Tires

Hoosier R6

GMG does good work. They did most of the modifications on my 997S.

I am interested what larger oil cooler they went with?

Looks good.

Technically though, it's not street legal.

Looks great. Really like how from the outside it looks very stock. I didn't know it was street legal to have a full cage....

Yea I thought it was very dangerous to drive a full-caged car without a helmet?

That looks great but too bad they didn't do the cage work inhouse as with all their builds.
