    PS4S does I think, not regular PS4? Still, even with a nicer compound MPSS is no way on the level of semislick like CUP2. And CUP2r are even 1step above. I'd but that (or Trofeo R) on Supra and see how fast it can go :p
    Only road tire than can match some of semislicks is PS4S at the moment I think.

    That is correct, but for whatever reason, the tire on the Supra is the "Pilot Super Sport ⭐️", not the PS4S. I am interested in seeing what the difference between the two tires is though.

    That is very interesting. Bespoke tires. Hope it’s not like Veyron bespoke. Not willing to pay 20k for tires lol. But I wonder what difference Cup 2’s would make on the lap time.

    If it’s true Toyota need to release an official time ASAP to silence the nay-sayers. Through mutual friends I’ve been told that the pro drivers for the press event have said the Supra is a match for the Cayman S (or 718T or whatever it’s called these days). So it’s quite possible it’s capable of an impressive time.

    There is a video clip about repeated tire tests of the Supra in Japan.

    Why does it feel like Tada is preparing for a hold my beer moment with the Supra?

    2nd of all I feel its superior in every way, just with less power :p Personally I think it will beat M2C. Its said to be benchmarked against 718 which handles best in class (with A110).

    M2 would be a good head to head. Against a M2 comp though, money is on the comp.

    Isn't M2C barely faster then regular M2? Z4 m40i is just 3s slower on NRing than M2C while not being even true M car.
    And 105% Supra will be faster than Z4.

    Z4 ring time is whole lap not bridge to gantry, so make sure you're comparing apples to apples :)
