    How fast can Gt2 lap the N'ring with MPSC tires?

    Gt2 is almost as fast as CGT both in drag race and on the ring even it has less horsepower.But the GT2s tested by WR or magazines were using MPSC.CGT dosen't have semi slick.
    Both GT2 and Gt3 are amazing on track.Not many sport cars which competing on the ring use semi slicks.What if Gt2 and Gt3 use pilot sport ps2 on the Nring?

    Re: How fast can Gt2 lap the N'ring with MPSC tires?

    In case of GT2 Michelin Pilot PS2 are not an option. Why? This tires do not exist in dimensions(rears) for GT2. 325/30-19 101Y tires are only available from Michelin(Pilot Sport Cup N0-OEM tires for GT2) and some Hoosier's(R6) which are even more track tire then Pilot Cups...

    GT2 is designed with Cup tires so, they are also pretty usefull on normal road. Just the fact that GT2 is faster on wet handling track then 997 Turbo(both cars with Cups) is telling us something how good traction on GT2 is...

    I am sure the extra power and lower weight doesn't hurt though, not just traction!

    Some interesting news:

    There is another tire available in GT2 dimensions-Continental ContiSportContact-Vmax OEM tire for RT12.

    Of course not, but conventional wisdom until the 997 GT2 came along was that the Turbo's 4WD system would have given it the advantage on a wet handling track in spite of higher weight.

    The 997TT AWD system is supposed to suck badly. Manthey even offers a Torsen upgrade for the 997TT.

    OMG,I wrote a wrong title.
    It should have been "with MPS2"
