The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup VIP features a shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E chassis that has its motor mounted longitudinally for optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame are fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers that improve rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod which provides a smoother steering action. The low center of gravity, great balanced design, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability.
