growler272Morning David , I'm sure Ralph or Des will be along soon with a formal welcome and equally sure that your Manthey GT3 will be of interest! I don't think the .1 GT3 in RHD form had many takers for the full K400 option so yours will be a very rare machine. Are you intending to track it at all ( when possible given the current circumstances )? Regards , Paul.
davidcrossNot sure if my car qualifies for the Modified Register but thought i'd post it up here in case it was of interest to anyone. Some of the detail is in the original sales link below but i'm sure there is much more detail to it. I don't have all the previous invoices sadly but i'd be happy to bring the car along for an inspection at some stage for someone to take a look at if at all interested. https://www.jzmporsche.com/used-vehicle-details/Porsche-996-GT3-U1686/ I've always had an interest in modified cars btw so this car ticked the boxes for me when i saw it for sale

The Register is for cars and their owners so you’re both welcome. See the “How to join..” at the top of our forum page. Is your GT4 still standard?
ralphmusicDavid, Joining a Register does not get you a subscription to a Forum. If you go to the Modified Forum, at the top you will see “Subscribe to this Forum” which when you click on, as if by magic... Regarding serious modifications to non-Turbo watercooled engines and drivetrains, there are a few some good some less so. When I had a tuned 3.8L Carerra engine installed in my 981 PDK Cayman S I went to a tuner in Germany, the only alternative at that time and probably still the case is in Florida. The complexity increases from the 996/986 thru today mainly in the area of electronics and control systems.
ralphmusicHello again David, I think you might be a year or so out with Spa. You had a white GT3 and Martin had a special edition Carerra. The 3.8L was sold last year and I now have a 718 GT4, my thread headed “Another pedal..” in Cayman Section. On Forum subscriptions, check that you have selected “Get instant notification” otherwise I am at a loss other than an invalid email address, as it has always worked right away when I toggle those options.Ralph
ralphmusicDavid, I still have the videos from Spa. I think Martin took this with his iPhone. I met Martin again at Silverstone some time ago, he had a Lotus on that day. Snetterton is too far from Exeter for a day trip but I’m booked with Lotus on Track at Castle Combe and later at Goodwood, then Silverstone on a circuit run day. One great aspect of the 718 is I can run on 98db days unlike the old car. I’d like to get back to Spa but being well over 70 and with a daughter with respiratory issues it’s not attractive under present conditions.I am on a day trip to Centre Gravity next Friday to see what can be done with the OEM suspension although on my slow running-in day at Goodwood in February the handling was pretty good save for stability under braking.
ralphmusic3.8 sold within 2 weeks through Williams Crawford. They have a 996 GT3 with a Cup engine for sale at present. Pity you missed that one.
ralphmusicHenry came to the same conclusion as I did re choosing which dealer to sell our cars. We had the same shortlist, very similar findings/opinions. His of course has somewhat stalled with CV but Adrian does maintain a good stream of digital media.
carreraboySounds great car ..... feel an article coming on ....
