3rd AWD, 8th overall at some local event last Sunday where the only classes are FWD, AWD and RWD so people show up with all sort of crazy builds. The two guys in front are a Tesla on slicks and an Evo doing just about the same times (didn’t check their tires.) I could not touch those guys. I didn’t even do the tire pressures or anything and went as-is, I had 1.9 bar front and 1.7 bar rear cold, and it barely climbed to 2.0/1.8 so not much heat in the tires. The engine worked well. Early afternoon the air temp was about 12°C sunny so there was a bit of heat on the ground and the Nexen N FERA R worked okay. This tire should be great in higher ground temps. Mid afternoon the air temp dropped to 5-6°C and the tires stopped working. I went more than 1sec slower in the last session despite by best efforts.
