So as I posted a week or so ago, I acquired a gorgeous 996 gt3...and thought no better way to get to know her than to take her to the track...


I can not believe how insane this car is on the track. I LOVE my turbo, but this is in another league as far as driver involvement, risk factor, and enjoyment.

The only thing done to the car for the event was the safety stuff (seats, harness' etc), some bypass pipes, and some cup sports. AWESOME!



















Well, it only took me a session to start doing this...

Those are some lovely pics you got there, I love the cobalt on the 996 it looks very fascinating and unique. Enjoy it in good health.

This wont be a J car, Im putting that money into grand-am and wanted a car I can enjoy on the road. I also wanted a car with no real mods to just drive home that what I am doing with the car is me and not the car. (Im sick of the, oh the car saves you with the turbo...)
