V6 traction loss.
In a big way too. Replaced my Falken F452's with some Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3's. Now i had a set on my 155 and the GSD3's were awesome in both wet and dry (remember the wet) so when i was having a bit of trouble finding Falkens it did not take much to sway back to the GSD3's.
Also running GTA multispokes with 225*45*17 i thought i would be clever and ad some more pressure to the ground by using 215*45*17. You know, the smaller surface area the more pressure you were taught in school.
A day after having all fours changed and all corners laser aligned i loose the front end in the wet at no more that 20mph, mount a kerb and just get away with bouncing off a wall 400mm deeper than the kerb was. I now have scratches right down to the alloy on my front rim and i'm talking more than half of the way around, god knows what the tracking is like.
I rode these tyres hard today to scrub them in and no loss of control then when i am taking it easy with the bird in the car WHAM!!
This is a quote from car&driver
"The Goodyear gripped so well that you might not have been certain the road was wet, and it lost traction in a gentle, predictable manner. It held onto the wet track with 0.82 g of stick, an impressive figure considering the worst tire in that test made only 0.67 g.
The Eagle F1 got a lot of favorable comments. In the wet, Geswein called it "direct"—a way of saying the tire provided clear signals about its contact with the pavement."
Someone else running GSD3's on the forum? Are you happy with them?
" You go into that corner there as fast as you can! Past your breaking point! When you see God, thats when you start breaking, peel in and screech past the apex. Thats how you win races!!"
12 laps on the Nurburgring and counting.....
