Thanks Zeb,
I'm new of the turbo world as I bought this car recently from a Brit gentleman driver that looked after it very much indeed for ten+ years

It is a lightweight 930 built for purpose years before the factory designed the '92 turbo S, on the other hand RUF company was used to satisfy customers looking for something the factory didn't make at the time.
I 've been reported that the original German owner wanted a turbo version of the factory '88 Carrera CS

The lightening process went down to tin glasses all round, alloy bonnet and deleting all the superfluos like central locking, rear wiper, A/C, radio etc.. starting from a new bodyshell with no trace of underbody seal protection.
I didn't put it on scale yet but I believe it saved around 100 kilos from a stock full options car.

And yes Drmatera I like the wheels very much as well, although they are heavier than fuchs (given the run flat construction) they are Speedline like all the following factory Turbo S/ RS version.
It is courious that the German documents that came with the car report the 9 / 11inch fuchs option exactly like the prototype you posted.
Mechanically is substantially a 3,4 BTR with controllable boost ,different cams,LSD ,close ratios transmission and big front calipers.
Performances wise is very funny if driven at long tracks like Mugello or Monza , and a bit less at home at short courses and hill climbs.

I add a picture of the car beside the Fia Gr 4 rsr tribute I built with great help of this forum and some pros

Cheers Simone

Sick cars!! My 930 "clubsport" weighs 1180kg with half tank so yours should be more than 100kg lighter than stock.. but maybe you have original interior? I have RS carpets, doorpanels and Recaro pole's.

Hm probably will add some RS 3.0 bumpers next winter and get closer to 1100kg and get that 930 prototype look I always wanted..

I think you all need to populate your pelican garage's with lots of hi-res pictures of your rides. Or give us a link to some place on the web with notes on what you did.

Lots of thought has gone into these and I'm sure there's lots of people that would appreciate your work. I'd especially like to see more of that RSR tribute.

Zeb930: what color is that?

Hey there ZEB,
How much straight line stability does your front splitter give you? Curious monkeys want to know!
Thanks.
Mark

Zeb,is this colour a factory one ? don't believe it, very cool and uncommon indeed, and yes the rs bumpers are a must for these cars imo: very light very clean racy shape,no rubber no concertina , finito.
The only down side is a sensation of lack of downforce at insane speed, I noted that many Germans use to add an horizontal profile like yours to increase downforce

Anyway the interiors of my 930 are lwt as well with the exception of the powered windows(someone says that cranck gears are heavier) and the seats that are period leather recaro(very comfortable) but sure heavier than pole's, furthermore there is the Matter safety rear arc that add same weight.
I have to scale it someday just to have a figure, may be you right


I fitted fire resistant pole's on the RSR but that's the no-compromise 950kilos warship, while I use the turbo mostly for cruising and the seats are way more adjustable and refined

Zacthor thanks for the kind words,
the rsr tribute is the result of a two full years building after several years of studying and gathering parts.
In the end I'm very satisfied about performances, look and build quality, at least I used the correct shape metal fender flares, there is more than one real carrera rsr conveniently restored with turbo flares around, it's a shame imo especially for such important race past cars.
I still miss some expensive parts that FIA body require before to issue the passport according to fiches #3053, furthermore they banned the pressure tensioners and the Msd box at first look.

I just add a off topic n/a picture as we are on boost forum

cheers
Simone

When I first added a splitter(glassfiber) a couple of years ago I felt it helped some.
Then when I got the splitter shoot to pieces in a road construction a year later it felt almost undrivable at high speed, so it probably helped more than I first thought..

Current one is made of ABS-plastic and although heavier its perfectly bombproof.

And Simone thats a great RSR tribute!!

Hey there Zeb,
Thanks for the feedback. I'm also entertaining a set of small angled winglets below the turn sigles on each side. I've seen several on old school 930 track cars.
Mine is just too darty & twitchy at 100mph & above.

Thanks! Its standard 930 bodywork just sits low and has about 3-4 mm clearance between tire and fender in the rear.
