I did have Toyo RA1 tires (worth about 4 seconds per lap) and a street/track suspension, but geez. Makes me wonder how bad the test driver was in this comparo.
Usually they are pretty bad. One of the reasons I will often write off these reviews is usually its the easiest to drive car that wins, not the fastest. However, the rankings are in line with those of other reviews so thats something...
Last time I was at reno I ran H (after it stopped snowing). And the full config the 2nd day. I do wish they would fix the big ass bumps on the back straight.
