get some winter tyres on it !!

for these new spec Michelin piplot Cups were there any special instructions of disclaimers from the dealer when you picked up the car ?

my Manthey GT3 is so yesterday ! Surprised




Yes. The dealer mentioned about 100 times that I should take it easy in teh wet and cold weather and that they were prone to aquaplaning in puddles. But, as said, I wasn't really paying attention. They are a bit slippery when cold, but seem to manage rain just fine.

the tread pattern on the Pilot Cups have a lot to do with it, as there are ineffect no real rain channels for the water to be pushed out.....

when they wear out the Toyo R888's are highly recommended and not bad in the rain as well ! !

any more pics ???

Many thanks for the advise. I have some more pics, but they are poor quality. Promise to do better over the weekend!

JFT, that is one horny car you have! If I were buying a RS it would be in the same combination! Absolutely beautiful! Be careful with those cup tires!

already.....

the other 2 dates also pencilled in is at the end of May when Autotrack have a 2 day track day at Spa, where a few trips to the ring will happen...

and when ever the German DTM/Truck race weekend is being held that coincides with the full open weekend at the ring.. normally July or August, as it's the only full open weekend that isnt packed !
