Just got back from a weekend in Vancouver.
A wet weekend.
I actually got the Bonne wet. :(
But it was the perfect test for the new rubber in all kind of wet road conditions, from damp to inches of pooled water with the wipers on full time.
It was also dark and foggy.
The tires handled it all fantastically.
I could hardly believe the traction.
I did some full throttle accel runs around corners at 40 mph and the tires never even broke loose a few times. The Low trak light didn't come on.
I left the traction control on because of my previous experiences with wet roads and boost and because I still don't have the Lsd yet.
The cornering force was astounding. I swear that they corner as well in the wet as my old RSA'* cornered in the dry.
I even threw it into a few corners and broke traction just to feel how they respond to sliding in the wet. Perfectly controlable.
I passed everyone and was the first home from the ferry......with the wipers on full blast in a cloud of mist and fog.
I can't wait to try them on dry roads.
