PR Technology technician and project lead Ben Warren talks us through this extensive 991 Turbo S 911 upgrade to TECHART GTstreet R project.
The TECHART GTstreet R really is a full-on upgrade, it’s not just a visual upgrade, it is whole car.
The first thing of note is the number of elements you got in the kit, it was truly impressive and this set the tone for the next 250 hours we spent building the car.
Through competition, we have discovered what components, in this WTAC car's setup we want to keep and also how we can use them more effectively. We're working towards a set up based on a holistic strategy this year, rather than a mix of original ideas and modified add-ons we picked up along the way. For example, we have had three different bonnet arrangements, different air cleaner setups, lots of different exhaust and inlet manifolds, exhaust pipe sizes, turbos, different engines etc. The four-year journey to victory in 2018 has taught us a lot about what we've got and how to optimise those parts to work most efficiently as a whole in the car.
