I just raced ( and hopefully tomorrow if rain stops) this class at the Kawahara & Novarossi Cup in Japan today.

It is totally drive like a tourer but faster. You still have to set up the car right to beat a tourer and wont catch a 1/8 at this track. I still have lots to learn but going from setting up liked a 1/8 scale didnt work for me so far. I went back to my Touring car set up and gone much faster.

best time I remember from yesterday practice from 3 classes

1/8 17.7 (Fukuda I think)
Tourer 19.505 (Shimo)
GPR 19.161 ( fast local)

I reached 106 or 107km/hr yesterday and my buddy, usually his touring is faster then me but he only managed just under 100km/hr yesterday.

It's show tires really matters. ....... I've seen Shimo driving his at FEMCA 2007, he is a world class driver, and yet fast local with GPR tires can get faster lap times than his

I would guess a GPR would be 0.5 to 0.8 sec quicker at this track than a touring car if same driver setting it.
You need to see Shimo at this track, is amazing. I seen him run at many tracks but coming back home in Japan, he is the man.

Check these out. I put more later.

This is the Track, very nice. Have a 180 turn at end of straight can almost go full speed because of curve at angle.
Also a Speed monitor that can see from driver stand. Tell you Top speed
nice buzzzzzz
