Luckily that Toyota has a carbon fiber monocoque. More than any other Japanese manufacturer can claim.

Maybe all those prophecies about the 2012 being the end of the world are true.


Apparently they're very capable machines when the pedals are being applied correctly

:facepalm:

at least go with RE-11s.

Do RE-11's even come in that size?

I'm all for better rubber on cars right from the factory, but nobody seems to ever want to listen. I'd gladly pay the cost that is passed onto the consumer, but I don't think everybody else feels the same way.

hmm, good question. I would guess that they would as it is their flagship tire but I'm not sure.

apparently the standard equipment for the LFA is the bridgestone S001 and according to the tire rack that's the only tire that even fits the 20" wheels on it.

They (tires like the RE-11) probably aren't very good at such large diameters, either that or it costs Michelin way too much to produce as an OE-type tire.

Then we're stuck with garbage like the Continental ContiProContact and Goodyear Eagle RS-A

RTFT. He's complaining that they should have done it on better tires.

Jesus fuck, you're almost worse than Rang3

Yes, they are, AND complaining about the tires! If the tires were better, it would've spanked their babies even harder, and they'd've whined even harder about something else even more obscure.

And @ "cockjuggling thunder"... Good form sir!
