This is why cars like this should only have 1 tyre, Having multiple choices on a track car is just beyond stupid IMO


User avatar

DodgeHEMI426  2d ago @Tyrone1

The problem is that Porsche offers this car with three different tires (Cup 2, Cup R and Cup N). The latter two haven't even been street legal until recently, because they were technically still in development.
And while the GT2 RS is a great car it also didn't exactly shine if equipped with the "normal" Cup 2. This leads me to the thought that a lot might be in the tires - and there the competition will eventually come back.


User avatar

BR2+  1d ago @DodgeHEMI426

It shines nonetheless, It stll beats damn near every car without the R, But a tyre developed for And with the car exclisivly for it, Just makes it more complete, Special series cars should be special, Cant build a few hundred copies and not be, Tyres are part of the car, Every car, Its not an end all to be all, No car is all tyre, The car works with the tyre, And vice versa. But having 3 tyre types on a special edition track car is just retarded, Same with having n optional Weiisaesiicccah pack, It should come with the best of its options, Not extra, As with every car, Unless its like an offroad special or something.

The funny thing about 991 is that it is 100 kg heavier than 997 and has 78 more hp and 50 more Nm, the Torque / weight is even smaller than 997.
Only thing that really differs - gearbox PDK
And all these slight changes resulted in Nürburgring time 6.47.30 which is 31 seconds faster than 997.
This is a HUGE GAP!

User avatar

Honestly there is no cheating. Porsche has the trofeo R tyres available for gt2rs and gt3rs and they are available for che customer. They are street legal. Many magazines testes the car with these tyres. If Ferrari or McLaren have not developed such tyres for their cars it's their problem. However we can basically say that this Porsche with standard tyres has performances similar to a McLaren 675 lt or a 488 (though in some tracks it destroys them even with normal tyres-v. Sachsnring). With the R tyres it blows, beating also Huracan Performante and McLaren 720s

You kidding? The GTB can't even see where the GT2RS went on most tracks. Sure you can have one track that is faster, but the rest of them is way faster. RS models has always been competitors to the lightweight Ferraris. Ever since the 996 GT3 RS vs 360 CS, 430 Scud vs RS 4.0, 458 S vs 991 GT3 RS, and now the Pista vs GT2RS


User avatar

General Castilla  2m ago @Boo

you probably forgot the most important part, the bs tires they use and the underrated figures which they enjoy showing off back at the nurboring, with their little sissy crew cheering like a bunch of hypocrites which you can also witness here on fl, knowing very well how it performs once the car leaves their sight with production tires that performs like utter shiet.

now imagine a 488 gtb with nothing less than 700 being sent to the wheels, some serious sticky tires and extremely large aero parts to support it around each and every corner, you get my drift ?


User avatar

hostboy  2m ago @Boo

I was talking about str8 line acc. I don't care for trk times, they're expensive


User avatar

Boo  2m ago @hostboy

I am pretty sure a gt2rs or even a turbo s in the "real world" will take care of a GTB to 100 mph. Ferrari overrates, Porsche underrates. Top speed sure or anything over 150 mph, but Germans are never into top speed and who will go to 200 miles. For me, I only look at drag races under 1/2 mile.

I think your mixing up Lambo and Posche, Lambo uses BS tires and Porsche uses production tires... The new Cup 2 R is a new series of tires for the future thats all, most are all performed with regular CUP 2. We will see how the Pista will perform. With the same tires CUP 2s with the GT3RS vs 458 S the GT3RS is sometimes faster at many tracks despite being 100hp less. (Cuz Fiat overrates their performance). End of the day, they are competitors.

User avatar

Tyrone1  3m ago @saxy

  • power to weight advantage. It is a lighter car and it has far more sophisticated aerodynamics so less drag than that big wing.
    GT2rs makes more power than 700hp i guarantee it.

User avatar

saxy  3m ago @hostboy

At no point were we taking about top speed were we? Stfu idiot.


User avatar

saxy  3m ago @Tyrone1

The gt2rs May have more than 700hp but the 720s has way more still. Aero makes little difference up to 240kph. And under 150kph it’s all about traction with that kind of power


User avatar

Tyrone1  3m ago @saxy

683 at wheels vs 700 at wheels. Seems closer than most people suggest.
Also aero absolutely makes a difference even under 200.
there are loads of other reasons the 911 would accelerate slower. More camber on the wheels due to it being track orientated. Wider front and rear wheels increase rolling resistance... maybe the compound of tyre is more suited to cornering traction and less "off the line" traction (see Trofeo R vs Corsa)


User avatar

hostboy  3m ago

The GT2RS had no Weissach in that test


User avatar

manone  3m ago @Tyrone1

"Also aero absolutely makes a difference even under 200."

road cars with highest downforce have about 150kgs of it at 200kmh, but for the most efficient ones this comes at little/no expense of drag. However, 911s have a very low aero efficiency, and have to increase drag to achieve downforce.

"More camber on the wheels due to it being track orientated. " this could be the biggest factor in its marginally inferior acceleration performance.


User avatar

Tyrone1  3m ago @manone

This is what i meant. The 720s has efficient active aero, thus it has reduced drag compared to the big winged GT2RS even at lower speeds.


User avatar

saxy  3m ago @Tyrone1

Camber affects contact patch which affects acceleration at traction limited speeds. Pretty sure both cars are neck and neck up to 100kph, so camber has little to do with it. By 100mph the 720s is already way ahead. And besides, the gt2rs has more weight over the driven wheels. And also, camber is put mostly on the front wheels, not the driven wheels. The amount of drag of a car at 100kph is 10-15hp for a normal Car, 20hp for a high drag Car. Drag cannot explain the huge differences in acceleration. It’s more power + less weight + less aero.


User avatar

Tyrone1  3m ago @saxy

Saxy we know that it is mostly less weight more power and better aero. We are just discussing little differences which affect acceleration.
Negative camber will ALWAYS be a detriment to any form of straight line acceleration. At low speed you have less grip, at higher speed you have more rolling resistance thus slower acceleration and the latter is the case for both RWD and AWD.
Also wider tyres suck for acceleration at higher speeds which is probably why all Mclarens have seemingly narrow tyres compared to ferrari porsche and lambo. Surprise surprise, they have a better top end.

In this case Mclaren 720s has a far superior setup for Acceleration than the Porsche. All the arguments for good acceleration are on the Mclarens side, aside from the rear weight bias of the porsche.


User avatar

saxy  3m ago @Tyrone1

Nope. The 720s can actually have 10% more power given the estimates of 800hp seem to be check out by all levels and how it runs 9.9 1/4 miles. But the 720s can not be any where close to 10% lighter, which is nearly 150kg difference which it doesn’t.


User avatar

Tyrone1  3m ago @saxy

What are you actually saying "nope" to? there is no argument here. There is a gt2rs tested at 683hp at the wheels. Highest 720s i have found is around 700hp at the wheels. Roughly 20hp is not 10% by any stretch of the imagination.

Indeed, amazing mechanical grip. Bit dissapointed in the straightline acceleration though... Maybe they had the rear wing dialled up to the maximum.

140mph in 10.1 seconds is hardly dissapointing. That 1/4 mile time has to be wrong. 5.7 to 100mph, 7.5 to 120mph is not going to take 11.2 to the 1/4 mile. Pretty sure that is 10.2 and not 11.2.


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @saxy

Yeah 10.2 would make a lot more sense :D
I meant the acceleration at top end. 22.3 to 180 is a big drop off compared to something like 720s. As i said i think they have the maximum angle on the wing.


User avatar

General Castilla  4m ago

as expected, 0 to 300 is a complete joke :)

you're either going to stick to maximum downforce to prove a point for the fanboys and mag fans with fake lap times or just try to go back to normal setting to play catch up wit the big boys aiming for a quicker 0 to 300, but the bad news is the turbocharger which is still using the old vtg turbo with minor upgrade from almost 10 years ago which starts to get hot and boost gets dropped and adjusted accordingly to avoid blowing up the engine, this happens when you start pushing your luck and still have faith that vw product is super reliable and there's no pr0stitute when speaking of vw product with a different badge lol

Tyrone1  4m ago @General Castilla

Yeah, its the setup. Theyve dialled it in for maximum corner grip for the anglessey racetrack (most likely camber and wing). The downside of not having active aero :)


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago @Tyrone1

The reason why it's 11.2 and not 10.2 is because of its poor launch to 30 and 60. The 2.0 0-30 and 3.5 0-60 are caused from the aerodynamics and gearing of the car. In fact the GT3 RS is quicker through a quarter-mile. The GT3 RS and the GT2 RS both ran Evo's 1/4-mile strip in 11.2 seconds. The trap speed difference between the two is 14 mph.


User avatar

saxy  4m ago @Tyrone1

That’s cuz it has downforce. That’s the whole point of this car.


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @hostboy

Poor launch makes sense: 3.5 to 60 is shockingly slow. Tho i dont really believe aerodynamics will slow a car down that much at low speeds like 60mph.
It makes no sense however that the GT3RS is faster in the 1/4 or in any increment of acceleration. It is basically the same shape so aero goes out as an excuse, same kinda tyres, both RWD. It just sounds to me as though they messed up the launch.
