    Michelin PS2 versus pilot sport cups

    Anyone have experience on the difference between Michelin PS2s and PS cups in the dry?

    Would I notice a big difference?

    How many seconds might I shave off a 2 min lap at oulton park for example?

    Enough to be as fast with the 997.2 around a track as with the 996 Gt3 Mk2 ...and even faster if you do a few laps

    In the Sport Auto 997 S NBR lap of 7.50mins the Cups were worth 7 or 8 secs, if I remember well.

    Re: Michelin PS2 versus pilot sport cups

    Yes there is a big difference on gripping and braking too. Make you a favour and try them.


    Re: Michelin PS2 versus pilot sport cups

    8 seconds off an 8 minute lap equates to 2 seconds off a 2 minute lap.

    I'm guessing the difference at Oulton Park might be more than that as the ring is a high speed curcuit. whereas Oulton Park has a quite a few tight corners.

    The other option is slicks - hmmm

    After 3 consecutive laps the gap should even increase...Smiley

    I'd guess 3 or 4 second improvement.  One note: Track tires prefer more negative camber than PS2's and you might want to have the alignment adjusted to make full use of the Cups...

     The SportAuto Supertest of the 997TT gives an indication: the gap on the HHR was about 2s between Cup and PS2. This is on a lap of approx. 1.12.
