    1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!


    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    Please elaborate.

    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    it's a lateral G number. for example, the GT2 is 1.02 and the new Ford GT is .99

    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    I think that it's worth mentioning that the typical American lateral g-force measurement is taken from testing on a 200 ft skidpad, not on the track. Certainly the CGT will be able to obtain even higher lateral g-forces on a track, where turn radius isn't as small and speeds are higher.

    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    Was there any other test results worth mentioning?

    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    sorry, but not really.

    Re: 1/04 European car quotes CGT @ 1.2gs!

    When I asked Roland Kussmaul about the maximum lateral g figure (max lat) for the Carrera GT at the Geneva introduction, he told me it was bewteen 1.2 and 1.3 g.

    It looks like he was telling the straight scoop.

    This is a phenomenal number for a street car on street tires. Roland replied that it was possible because of the extremely low center of gravity (PCCC, special transmission, and all).

    "This is a phenomenal number for a street car on street tires."

    These "street" tires were said in the article to run $1500/each! I'm about to put on my 4th complete set on my 996 with 13k miles. I might have to treat these a little better

    Wow!

    These are very special "street tires".

    Racing slicks with track-specific warm-weather compounds are ordinarily required to exceed 1.2 g. My IROC car can do about 1.2 g on slicks on a warm summer day at Mid-Ohio in a turn with some slight super-elevation.

    1.2 g would never be possible with broad temperature range tires that have rain treads on an ordinary car.
