It is not recommended from what Iíve read as it wonít fit with the suspension/wheel well clearance, wheel offset, etc. That said, Iíd like to know specifics too. I will ask on the Porsche board.

Sad we never got an official GM laptime for any of the C7 cars. I believe thatís correct?

I have a 2018 GT3 and a 2010 ZR1. I think the GT3 is epic and I love it, but itís not going to be able to hang with a new ZR1. Thatíll take the GT2 RS which is more than double the price of the ZR1.
