Typo -- not ignorance! 10,000 miles / 16000 kms
I remain one of the few who make the effort to speak in stupid Imperial and also metric.
Do you talk about kilometerage or mileage when discussing fuel economy?!Hahahaa.....I KNOW!
As an aside, and a reflection of a moment in STUPIDITY: one of my primary school "teachers" (boy if I could go back how many I would have had fired lol) taught us up here that our American Cousins did not want to adopt the metric system because if/when the "Russians" invaded they would get confused with the conversion from imperialism.
Metric we have adopted....yet we still buy 2x4s for construction
When the rear starts coming ‘round it comes around quickly for sure. Do some skid pan work to see for yourselves if you haven’t experienced it.Just to follow up on this thread...
Short wheelbases have notoriously been deemed "twitchy". I remember when BMW was campaigning their Z3 GT/GT3 car. The BMW drivers always commented how the smaller wheelbase on it compared to the other GT cars made it a handful to drive around the track. They weren't saying it was terrible, but just the fact that they had to work a bit harder than the other drivers to achieve competitive lap times.
That being said, the 4C given it's short wheelbase will seem twitchy compared to something like a Cayman. The Cayman will definitely seem more stable and driveable compared to the 4C. Cayman is a great vehicle, no doubt. It just comes down to what you use your car for and what you enjoy.
However, I would definitely recommend experiencing your 4C on a race track before you make any decisions.
For grip these appear the best. Value for money, Hankook R-S4s are up there. They’ll last ages longer than the Bridgestones, only giving away a little in grip while only costing half as much. I‘ve heard on the grapevine that Bridgestone is currently testing a RE71R replacement. More grip than the new Yokos, I believe.I'll reiterate. Tires, period. I understand that there are more options in the 17/18 wheels, but the top street tire for the 18/19 are the Potenza RE71r (correct me if wrong) to keep planted at street speeds. They have caused me to desire more hp since they hold so much more than factory tires or even the Pirelli ARR, which I found on tire rack, and I understand were the euro sport version of the US AR Pirelli factory sport tire. After 5+ years of DD ownership, I must admit I'm missing the third petal but this is such a fantastic car. If I could only figure a possible was to scratch both itches...
