Sorry, I mixed up runflat and FTM. So I didn't mean runflat, I meant the Flat Tire Monitor. This system works with the wheel speed sensors of the DSC. On this passive system theres no sensor or anything else in the rims or tires; so every rim "supports" the system. But if you change the tires/rims so that the wheel circumference also changes, the FTM is irritated and asks for recalibration.

OK you surely know more about the tire monitoring system than me...but... How do you know which car is which when they are totally covered and all you can see are the rims? I still think they are showing two cars there, one to the public and one behind closed doors. It makes sense, that is the way shows work, Scott said it and there are pictures to support that point of view, along with the CSL elements we can all see on the concept.
