    A thing that bugs me for some time now.

    I have the impression that I have completely different grip levels when I compare the tires from race start with the tires I get when i make a pitstop.

    After the pitstop I lose grip very often, more often than with the race start tires. And I often struggle to keep the pace, which I had no problem with before the pitstop.

    FR3, GTR3, GTO Classics... maybe or most likely a placebo effect... but why?... fresh tires should provide better grip.. I know that they can be cold in the first lap but I have this feeling for the rest of the race. I think it has nothing to do with cold tires.
    It just feels weird, and maybe I'm so frightened right now when I get new tires that I just drive shitty "on purpose"...

    anyone else has this feeling?
