Total catastrophic failure, no warning. Carbon fibre doesn't really crack as with a normal material because of the cross weave. You could drive one for years and never experience a problem, but one speed bump or pothole could be one too many., you will never know. I have looked at Dymags wheels as soon as they came out in the states, the weight saving is very tempting especially on an RS or GT, I do love their wheels and have paid a small fortune for them on bikes over the years( never carbon though) but I would always recommend your other two choices.

That sounds rather scary! On a race car may be, as part of the risks on track, but just can't bear the thought of a sudden failure on a motorway!

I saw that, and spoke to Paul in GTClassic who's selling it. It's not a genuine Porsche spoiler (note it says Clubsport Style spoiler), just a replica one. God knows why it's in Ferrari yellow! Paul's ordered the last set of genuine spoiler set of the current batch for me anyway. Wallet burning!

There was a Ferrari yellow '64RS at GT Classics so i presume the spoiler came off that.

Mick - is the clubbie spoiler you've ordered like that one or does it look like the GT2 spoiler (RSR?). Also - are you sticking in a matter cage?

The Clubbie spoiler looks the same as the one on for sale, and I thought they're the same as the RSR/GT2 spoiler?

No, no roll cage I'm afraid.

1) it's heavy, @50kg I think

2) after all the talk of wt reduction, I'm putting a pair of rear seat belts in for the occasional scholl runs and LeMans trip! Embarassed

I see - comfortable clubsport spec then!

I thought RSR / GT2 spoilers were bigger and have the intakes for the GT2s intercoolers as.........

Well, it's comfort spec at the moment with heavy comfort "spot" seats, elec window, ac and all, but I'm trying to make it less comfy by putting bucket seats and prob get rid of the airbags as well.

It's the seats that's going to make the difference I think. Not sure how heavy those comfy seats are but the SPG is oly 6.5 kg each.

The look I'm after:

Yeah, i like it. I was originally of a small spoiler persuasion but i think the clubbie style looks great in the right colours (sy & rb).

Sport seats will be heavy and the buckets will make you feel a lot more connected to the car. Can see where you're coming from with the cage if you're squeezing the kids in the back. Look forward to seeing the beast at LeMans - can't wait for our 911 convoy along the public sections of track!
