Not knocking the RE-71, just wanted to know more about it.
Bridgestone is a series sponsor...and the competition requires a 200 treadwear rating, too.

Yes we needed to remove the OEM brake dust shield for clearance purposes. We are going to look further into modifying or fitting cup car brake dust covers when the car is back from its first event at NOLA.

We picked these tires due to the limited size available to meet the tread pattern criteria, we must have 200 tread wear rating for the Optima Battery Series events.

Also, I installed the DSCsport V3 box prior to this event, and it's transformed the car, cutting my consistent lap times 1.5 seconds! If you don't have a V3 box, you just have to get it. Here's my full review over on Rennlist: https://rennlist.com/forums/991-turb...formation.html
Great stuff!!!! We really appreciate the write-up and feedback! Glad you enjoyed your time at VIR and got to see our build!

We’re at NOLA to test the TPC Racing/DSC Sport Porsche 991 GT2RSx in preparation for this weekend’s competition. Reigning 2017 OUSCI Champion Ken Thwaits stopped by to meet Mike and scope out our car. Should be an epic battle and a sure one to watch!!!

Be sure to stay subscribed for updates on the event results!

The GT2RSx has went on a diet! With ~ 70lbs in weight reduction, we removed the sunroof top and converted the USCA build to a slick top, removing the sunroof, tracking, and sunroof motor. While we had the chance, we removed the rear OEM Porsche window to replace it with the lightweight Porsche Motorsport GT3 cup rear window.







With an overall finish of 2nd at our first event and setting the Hot Lap pace at NOLA, we look forward to our next event and the opportunity to earn an invitation to the Las Vegas Final! Be sure to look out for the #36 GT2RSx and Mike Levitas at the next upcoming events! Speaking of which, the diet between events for the GT2RSx should be very beneficial!

Very cool build....

See you going for big weight reduction... when you are ready to bail on the Optima Battery after SEMA.... get in touch with us. We can drop about another 35lbs off the Car with our RS-30 Battery. Our Batteries are 11 pounds... plus will never over-discharge, or not start the car because we have a system that puts the battery to sleep before it will overdischarge, but leaves enough energy to restart the vehicle.

By the way we will also be at SEMA Booth 12061 Antigravity Batteries, if you want to drop by and talk to us.

As the season for the Optima Battery's USCA has come to a close at SEMA, we have plans this winter to develop the ultimate 991 RSx Blitzkrieg package for marginal HP gain on the GT2RSx which as some may know started as a 991.1 Turbo.



With the engine out, changes to the tune, addition of the TPC Racing intercooler kit, the charge Y-pipe, and a change from the restrictive OEM intake manifolds, look to see marginal gains the next time we rip the GT2RSx on the Dyno with the Dyno results.





We have been testing with changes to the tune before and now are putting more aftermarket performance products into this build to get the gains we are looking for to provide to the market. Less restriction for more airflow is the key!



With the perfect combination in parts and a perfected tune, in short time we will have the 991 RSx Blitzkrieg package by TPC Racing for the 991 Turbo which will be bullet proof for the consumer looking for a marginal gain without sacrificing reliability. Stay tuned for developments on the GT2RSx build as we continue our tinkering on developing the ultimate package for gains and for you!

As always excellent work you guys ! Any updates on this build? Also, really interesting those bigger intake pipes. Do you have any other pics on them? Do you sell them or just made them for this build? Would like to hear more about this intake pipes.
