New ZR1 Corvette Ring time

A ZR1 with just the addition of Michelin Cup tires(now an available stock option) shaves 7 seconds off the previous time moving the car up to #7 on the Nurburgring list. The playing field is now equal as many manufacters use Cups for time trials at the Ring.

Not a fan of the Vettes but definitely respect them. A performance car in the truest sense.

This just in, sticky tires improve performance.

Seriously though, those tires are no joke. They are not regular PS Cup tires and apparently are only available on the Corvette for the near future, unfortunately.
