To those collecting new cars, please post pics and report back on how the powershift drives. (Include pics of the shifter/gear select - what ever yous call it. - Actually what do you guys call your auto's gear stick, I hear loads of different names of them?)
The tyres aren't designed to fail after so long, they soften the compound to add extra grip and decrease tyre life. Trouble is when something like a sharp kerb comes, because the rubber is soft they take a beating.
I remember a few years back where a lot of teams pulled out of the Indy circuit, because the tyres were shredding due to the track having some sort of extra grip material, but when the cars run in reverse it shredded the tyres, Bridgestone knew this because Firestone their sister company had experience of it and sent stronger tyres, those on Michelin's suffered.
