Apex Competition's 996 Carrera 2 Project Car

So what's this all about? It's about the impressive Porsche GT3 Cup cars that we can't drive everyday... so why not take an affordable 996 C2 and modify it to arrive at a semi-comfortable yet formidable weekend club sport toy... One that can still be driven to and from the circuit and even everyday!

315 Race Tires fit?

996 Track Prep - Race Tires
Originally uploaded by apex944
Yes they fit. I get this question a lot. The car is lowered to stock GT3 ride height. With OE GT3 wheels, no spacer and 315/30-18 Pirelli Corsa race rubber I have had no problems at all with rubbing. They do not stick out beyond the fender at all. This size is probably a little bit overkill for the rears. A 305 or 295 may be a faster tire actually. The front is where you need the wide rubber on these cars. 235 is the minimum. I'm looking for a set of wheels that will allow me to run 245 or 255 up front.

Beautiful day, new race rubber, and a full tank of high octane fuel. Summer time @ Beaverun Motorsports Complex.

A great group of students showed up and we had a blast instructing them at the track today. The new Pirelli PZero Corsas really transformed the car. The old ones just had far too many heat cycles in them.
