Not sure how many miles you have on your GT3RS, but at around 1500 ( Inc about 1k on track) the blue engine run in light goes out. Then the engine drives like its on another Map, it really comes alive in sounds also. I am really looking forward to get this new GT3 on track have some Cup 2 R ready to go on, based on just how good my 991.2GT3 was with just a few GEO and ride height settings, have high expectations for this new car..
Anybody know ... what would be a good geo set-up on a 991.2 GT3 ?

For mainly road but some track work ?

Give Chris at Centre Gravity in Atherstone CV9 2GA a call on 01827 718800 and although I haven't used them personally everyone who I have spoken to who has, raves about them. Not cheap by very good.

Yep, I’d probably go with CG also. I’ve used them before for my fast road geo and would do so again.
Ralph has a booking there later in the spring Chris, so maybe connect with him also.

Plus one for CG. Setup my RS for fast road and it’s perfection. Had been previously setup by Manthey and it was a dog on the road compared.

As I understand it OPCs are initially being allocated 3 cars for more or less immediate production and delivery, say early May.
Does anyone yet know when information on the bulk of deliveries will be communicated to the dealerships and if so what the typical allocations will be to the OPCs and over what timeframe?

I’m dealing with a large OPC. They told me they are only getting 4 cars this year and production April/May so delivery July or August I hope.

They said smaller dealers only getting one or two cars so allocations seem slim if this is correct.

And yes they want me to buy a watch.

Traditionally they're done on a rolling basis every quarter. So upon release a dealership may get a rough idea of how many cars they'll get over the total run e.g. 15 cars. They may then 3 cars per quarter for 5 quarters until production ends. The 3 cars may be 5 one quarter or 2 another though. Basically if you've missed the initial round of allocations you've got to wait a few months for the next round at which point confirmed build slots will be allocated to folks waiting.

This is how it used to work pre-pandemic anyway.

Really. Are they asking you or telling you?

Yes...that’s how it worked with 991.2 GT3.

I was talking to sales exec re something else just after the GT3 was launched...he said they have three build slots for this year and have no idea of total production. They’ve been unable to give people the comfort of saying “we’re expecting three more build slots in Q3 and you’ll get one of those cars” etc which has led to some fairly unhappy customers who are used to getting made to feel special smile

I’ve never asked about a 992 GT3 so I think that was relatively straight info and not skewed as a potential buyer.

Thinking back to 991.2 there was a lot more chat about people saying they were expecting a car at the end of the year when that was launched.

I’d imagine they charge for it...and I am fairly sure the answer would be something along the lines of “each set up is bespoke”. I actually have my first visit to them in a couple of weeks, really interested to see what it’s all about. In normal times you can stay and watch, not sure if that’s possible at the moment.

Looks smaller than I imagined.



I guess with no need for leg room in the back they can shorten the wheelbase to make it more agile and no need to RWS.

Clever people those engineers.

Haven't used Centre Gravity but evidently they have a good reputation.

Like all setups and irrespective of the quality and age of the equipment it will only be as good as the person undertaking the work at the time.

As others have said I’d go to CG - however, get it booked asap as they will get super busy from now on - They did the set up on my 991.2 GT3 (after JZM did it - really didn’t like that set up) - it’s perfect for spirited road use now.

Amazing family business, who really know their craft from AC to modern GT cars. They have time for their customers and really want to do a great job for them - charming people and great value IMHO - very rare in this day & age smile
