Strosek 911 RUF finally back and kicking!

Now almost 2 years, since last time this car driven, now boostier than ever and ready for action. Here is some pics about the result, if somebody is interested what it has been eating under it skin for 2 years, I can post some project pics as well.
But these are from the last weekend, the first afterburns for years. And it was ssOOO refreshing to drive this.










Now it s time to find right setups for everything, especially for the suspension balance... Engine is running great (wide band lambda tells correct numbers) by being oldfashioned racing construction with one relatively large turbo and conservative 0,9bar boost. BUt it has tremendous potential to be raced out despite of the age of the car, even against the new ones, because of very smart suspension and ultralightweight setup.

Why is everyone wearing high water pants in the last picture? You live in a flood plain?

Ineresting bodywork. I've not seen anything quite like it. Got any engine pix?

I cannot stop laughing Brian - that is the *EXACT* first thing that was going through my mind looking @ the pics. I didn't want to be "that guy" to make the call though - thanks for running point heh heh.

I was like, oh, cool Strosek... oh, COOL flames... oh......er.......uh......ummmmmm... __W__T__F__'s with all the knickers, britches, capri's, pedal pushers, clam diggers, high waters, flood pants, etc.?!?!?!?!?!?????

Euro-style my @$$!!! Looks downright silly. Sorry, no offense Petri 8-). And it looks hotasballz out in those pics - gee let me cover even more of my legs?

Sorry, I digress.

Apparently everything's coming up Millhouse out there...



Again - 8-)!

Too funny Brian...

Gee you found long shorts funny, I didn't even notice the co incidence in the pic that everyone has those (except me in the driving suit and helmet behind my car).
Here is something under the hood, interior pics comes later, haven't taken them yet with the new setup.








Engine is still the same RUF construction with C-group cylinders and B-group camshafts, KKK-27/32 turbo. In front we have now 3 huge oil coolers and we really got rid of the overheating problem found earlier.

We added racing exhaust to shorten the lag (succeeded) and changed the intercooler to Blownsix Design full width racing application. We use Tial Pop off.
We also changed to the Hargett Precision Pro 930 shifter and suspension has earlier changed to the complete Smartracing Fox Racing Shocks coil over system with all 935 adjustable additions. Also we added to the front Elephant products quick adjustable camber plates.

The bottom plates are now finally under testing: they have been ready since christmas, but the car to test wasn't so this will happen soon.

I'm sorry Petri - I didn't mean any offense. Just found it funny that I wasn't the only one to notice.

And even more sorry - I was so busy laughing I didn't share how gnarly I think your car is. What a great color! Set up is sic, I esp. like those wheels - Fikse's? I normall do not find Strosek body styling appealing - yours is the exception. Really unique, really nice, and your setup is beyond titalating!

Thanks for sharing - and for the floodpants laugh 8-). Enjoy that thing!

I didn't get any offense about shorts . Good notice.
The weight is without me (105kg, but size 56 slim) and gasoline (120L = 120kg) 1030kg (24liters oil included with new coolers).
So driving weight with me and half tank is 1195kg, which means it is underweighted to FIA GT1 specs, but 80kg (maximum extra weight added) it will be just correct if I don't drive the gasoline tank empty all the way.
Power figures you will get in few weeks, we are going to dyno as soon as possible... But my assdyno says the firgures will be beautiful .
Beautiful enough that I don't have to be ashamed of driving Strosek Megawide body with my own front bumper and side skirts...
Yes, this is the same car which in earlier pics was with Strosek OZ-racing wheels. Those wheels are now in my other 911 (964 RS engined) grey one. Here some pics of that one.
I got Fikse wheels for this one, because they are even lighter than OZ-racing wheels although those are also very light. I think Fikses suit well for this design. I'm also going to have one set of full matt black wheels for slick tyres... for the green one of course.





This car got also semi-restoration last winter with new cobra misano seats, hargettt pro 915 shifter, rsr-rollbar etc... Very nice track day car also, but soo slow with just 297hp in it . (You remember the discussion earlier here about the acceleration of NA 3,6 vs. 911 Turbo. These are my reference cars I'm comparing).

The Strosek body itself is very carefully detailed and beautiful - a very high quality product with excellent fitting.
I bought this car 2004 with the Strosek body professionally fitted to it and the roof water sidelines carefully removed.

I like most the 993ish front and rear corners but fitted with 965-rear lamp construction. This car after all is not 993 based and is honestly proud of it.
The problem for me was the teethless street tuning car look and because I was building it strongly to the club racing direction our main concern was to create down force bottom plate diffusor system (written earlier here as well),
Diffusor bottom plate plans for 911

which is about to be tested this summer. Also I wanted the front bumper to eat 3 huge oil coolers and help for the front brake cooling, side skirts to create tunnel effect to the bottom of the car and offer an option for the rear brake cooling.
Here is the first results: I think they should adapt to the Strosek Body seamlessly.
I'm also working for the short nose version for proper street driving to change.
I'm also working now to make similar side and front parts with bottom plates also to more classical 930 body. Then we can offer 4 different versions (for 930 and Strosek body with long and short nose version for both) for those who think they need something like this for their street/track car.

I would never be ashamed of driving that car. I'd drive the pants out of that thing where ever, and when ever I could. Those that snicker and/or laugh are just jealous they're not in the drivers seat.

One hell of a car in my opinion and very unique, which makes it just that much more intriguing to me.
