Tyres, tyres, tyres.



Now that the Corvette has the same rubber as the competition has had for the last 10 years... oops... it turns out the Corvette is fucking fast after all

The extra RPM gets the car going just as fast, the lower weight allows it to turn stop and turn harder.

The tyres are the majic though. Think about it, the tyres have allowed essentially the same car to go from 7:46 to 7:22 in 5 years.

Thats from hohum fast to CGT fast, and it's just a Cheby vato...

Well yeah its very confusing, EnzoFerrari its my user name I like the Enzo a lot but more than a dream Its almost impossible for me to have one, the avatar its just one the pictures I took some time ago, and yeah the ZO6 its a car I might be able to afford one day, you can call it my affordable dream car, I just love how it looks, sounds and the performance....if money was no object the list would be very long but ill still buy a Z06/ZR1.
