Soundcheck - Manthey Porsche 997GT3RSR
Beim Testtag in Spa Francorchamps war auch die Manthey Truppe aus Meuspath,
um mit Marco Holzer und Nick Tandy den Porsche 997GT3RSR für die
International GT Open zu testen.
Akustisch und fahrerisch über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Die Jungs treten wohl
nicht an um Zweiter zu werden.

Today I saw at Monza Circuit the new Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RSR, the car
which will race in the 2013 FIA WEC (World Endurance Championship).
The car is moved by the "old" 4 litre flat-six engine (the same of the 997
Porsche GT3 RSR) which produces 460 hp.

Falken Wildpeak AT tire review
Review Of Falken Wildpeak AT tires at about 3000 miles.
Size 245/17/65 so far very happy with tires
I miss spoke in the video, noise starts at 40 mph and stop at around
I am hoping this maybe a balancing issue and it will go away next tire
rotation and balancing.
I will let you know. Over all I like the tires , they are smooth on the
road and quit for the most part.They are wearing pretty evenly so far.
Honda is not known for the sound damping ability read any review and you
will see. Provided the world does not end in the next few years we will up
size to a sequoia for our vacation SUV !!!
I would say lost about a mile per gallon after getting these tire on.
