Autocrossed yesterday for the first time with my 245/40/17 PSS tires. I thought I was going to be a grip king, but I was actually a drift king. I'm stage 2 UEL header but it was amazing how easily 2nd gear would kick out the rear end.


My max corner entry speed was much lower than I had anticipated, maybe due to the soft sidewalls of the PSS.


Bottom line is, with a 245 square setup you can still drift lol.

Good to know, thanks! I was planning to switch to the same size from 225/45-17 after the car turned a little too playful with JRSC. I can't put as much power as I want on the road especially at the corners. But I can't do any larger than 245 with my 8" wide wheels. I'll see.

Yup, this is my experience with MPSS as well. Their limit is surprisingly low.

Getting sideways has a lot to do with how you drive the car and how the suspension is set up as much as tire grip. You can drift a stock twin on Hoosier A7s if you drive it right (aka wrong but ask it to).

Got an open flash tablet. Downloaded cars original ecu, ran it nearly out of gas, filled with e85, and then realized that none of the ots tunes were loaded 😡. Interested to see how long this will take to get sorted out.
