Yes, that's because it has 1000hp, and effortlessly spins the wheels like a toy car. The different motors on each axle are like 2 different "gearings" efficiency-wise which is why they cruise at high...

I think two piece rotors don't dissipate heat any better, but they have less thermal expansion stress with a floating mount so you can run them at a higher temperature before they warp or crack.

What I wonder is if a PDCC equipped Cayman with wider tires would be faster. If there's no roll to worry about, there's no camber increase to worry about.

This is to be expected. MacPherson strut vs. double wishbone/multilink means the GT3 has better grip even if the track weren't slightly wider.
