I hear the same about the Cup 2’s. GT3 is for drier days and track days so if it’s really wet and need to get a fix I would just take the turbo instead.

Best get ordering!!
I've got Cup 2s on my 997.1 Gt3, my experiences with them this winter are pretty much as MJA911 has found them. They're not too bad in cold and wet conditions, although I'd not be so sure of them in standing water. others may know different.

I had a turbo before. Turbo to GT3 seems a pretty tried and tested spiral into addiction! I do wish I had the means to run both - nice to see someone is able. Too many people wrongly assume the GT3 is the pinnacle when, in fact, IMHO there's still stuff the turbos do way better.

I agree the both serve different purposes for me and, for a period of time at least, I am able to have both at my disposal.

Cups will be ordered today and fitted next week and need to sort the clunky shift. It had a factory short shift fitted at the OPC years ago but price v function think it’s going down the route of 997 RS shifter and either cup or numeric cables.

Will keep you all posted

Would be interested on where you find the best deal for the Cup2s, last time I looked it was Camskill, but its a dynamic market.
