Can funflat summer tires even be considered a summer tire? Even my hankook ventus perform better?!

An 18" with decent non funflat tires would have been optimal.

Does no one else call these funflats as i do? Ha

I think the 335i did great if you remember it has sub par track tires and way less power to weight ratio. So add a JB and a set of Pilot SS or RE11's and I think this car would be much faster. I think the Audi S6 numbers were sad.

What tires were on the Camaro's? If they had descent tires, then a different story...I still don't think we compete in that class.

Honestly, I thought we could've topped the S6, but sadly we didn't. Unsure how...

Regardless, aftermarket only has MORE to do to improve the F30 architecture.

The S6 is a underated 420hp Twin Turbo V8, it is Camaro ZL1 fast. So I would not expect a stock 335i to beat it.

The RS5 numbers are impressive. The Camaro is using 285 GOODYEAR EAGLEŽ SUPERCAR G:2 TIRES all the way arround. An Ultra Performance Summer Tire.

This track favors higher horsepower cars vs balanced ones. Look how good the mustangs did!

Yeah, if they were chasing you around VIR, and had the same driving ability as you.

In the real world they just call it in, wait for you at your house, and laugh about it while driving you to the station.

It's difficult to outrun a Motorola.
