    If the rear of the car floats, that's a pretty clear indication that it needs some more toe. Adding just 2-3 minutes per side can make a big difference in straight line stability.

    Swapped to the Michelin MPS4S for the summer, and what a difference. Certainly a lot better than the Pirelli tires, and more grip than the Continental all seasons.

    I’ve got an appointment to get novitec springs installed in 2 weeks as well as an alignment. Looking forward to seeing how it performs in the corners after.

    Tires, Tires, Tires. I have an F12 along with several mid engine V8 Ferrari's and I really did not like the F12 when I picked it up. I loved the power but the car made me nervous. I waited way to long and then with a wheel spin and rear wheel hopping problem on the F12 I finally trashed the original Pirelli tires ( I hate to throw away tires with that much tread remaining but...) The Michelin tires transformed the car. So much better. I ask myself why would Ferrari do that to me? I assume they think we are all going to just tootle around on the roads with a 12 cylinder front engine car. I am a disciple now for tire conversions. Just FYI.

    I think there are currently two very simple reasons. The first is F1. The other is the fact that Pirelli is Italian.

    Funny thing is how few Ferraris run their best Fiorano times with Pirellis, not to mention the fact that the F1 drivers call the Pirelli tyres for crap.
