i am perfectly comfortable driving on zeros as i know their behaviour when they let go under braking and under power due to off road time and that makes me a better driver as i invested in my learning and skills
if you want to drive a high powered car and not understand it then i rest my case... even police drivers learn the limits of their cars so under all circumstances they are always completely in control..
yes i am saying if you don't want to invest in driving lessons to understand the limits then you have low self esteem as early expanding your knowledge through the application of practice is a clear worry and if you constantly break traction without knowing why and what to do you have a low driving standard.
I drive on the road to the conditions and the road traffic act, i just know that while within those prerequisites the pzeros do and often loose traction and i also know what to do when that happens irrespective of the tc or dsc kicking in. if you think zeros are satisfactory on a 400 bhp car or even a 300 bhp s197 then i think we should suspend our conversation as clearly you talk a safety game but don't understand what constitutes a safe tyre. Perhaps ford agree as they seem to be supplying michelin now...........
Good day good sir.
Do the tyres control the vehicle or does the driver?
Which of the two is in control and provides input?
When I were a lad I was taught that a poor tradesman blamed his tools.
The tyres are not dangerous. They are not the best, I wouldn't even consider them great, but they're not dangerous.
They're far better than tyre compounds when I started driving (with no driver aids).
The Mustang isn't a slouch, it is a bit slow compared to what I'm used to but I like the character.
I think it's hilarious that you're passing judgement on abilities and self esteem of someone you've never met.
I bow down to your superior driving skills and intellect, I could never hope of matching them.
I'll have to make do with what little I have.
On that point, I'm well aware of the limitations of the vehicle. Being aware of them I drive accordingly on public roads. I've only lost traction when I've intended to.
I believe it's yourself that is stating that you couldn't trust yourself to know when the tyres were going to loose traction?
Or maybe I read your post wrong?
I'm not into the whole condescending passive aggressive thing, seems you are.
