tyres....

In the vid it mentioned it runs 2-3secs a lap quicker when on slicks compared to the 888's.

Its already quicker than BTTC, so another 3secs is huge at that pace!

Think it says similar time to BTCC on road legal and 2-3secs quicker than BTCC on average on slicks, that's the bit that's causing confusion. Looks like it's a fair bit quicker than the BTCC cars last year at knockie though.

Just a bit confusing what they are classing as road tyres (888's?) or not.

Yea i would presume hes classing r888's as a road tyre because well it is a road tyre and its the tyre used for Time attack (used to be anyway)

So knock 2-3 seconds of the quickest time attack times and it opens the gap even more from bttc and time attack

Thats how i see it anyway?

Yeah vid says it's 2-3secs faster than BTCC on slicks though, I too would have expected it to be a bit more - especailly given the KH times. And if anything there should be more of a gap on tracks with larger straights.

Probs just an error on the vid.

Going by numbers, 300bhp set up vs 900bhp set up is a 3 second a lap quicker.

With numbers like that I just expected it to be faster. I know 3 seconds a lap is huge but I expected more Embarassed

yup.... but look at a touring car budget, build, team, weight etc

The CPR EVO was built from a much road going Evo, the TC's are custom built with much bigger budgets for susp etc.

And most of the BTCC cars are just front wheel drive, and not 4wd

When Audi entered Touring Cars in the mid 90's with the quattro A4, they won every championship worldwide they entered.
So the banned 4wd.
