    It's a 2017? I saw their "Suspension Challenges" video too and they said 2017 with that. I haven't even got my MY16 yet!

    Funny that with the complaints and all the guy was keeping up with race spec Boxters out there and passing McLarens with I'm sure not so good drivers. Still, the car is impressive regardless of these cooling issues which can be fixed fairly easily.

    All I saw was the info at the start with "30psi cold" and I knew these guys didn't know wtf they're talking about.
    Didn't bother watching the rest.

    If you don't take factory spec into consideration and complain of understeer, you're an idiot. Period.

    Tires were probably on their sidewalls, lol.

    It's because after your warm up lap your tires come up to proper temps and pressures. 46 psi is factory because when cold the tires side walls need the extra load support.

    30psi will not warm up to 46psi.

    Not to mention that 46psi spec is for cold tires as is every recommended tire pressure from a manufacturer.
