    I can understand the Gallardo creaming a 360, but how the CSL gets the lap times it does is beyond me. I've seen nothing to support those times magazines get with either straight line performance figures, or local lap times by a guy who drives a 360 and CSL and is many seconds a lap faster in the 360. Can anyone explain it? Oh...unless the tyres on the CS are really crappy. We know the CSL has amazing tyres on it from standard...but can that be enough?

    Tires are the single most important variable in circuit lap times. The CSL comes with a true R-compound tire, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup. The CS comes with Pirelli Corsa System, a step down in performance from the PSC and the Corsa R-compound tire. So yes, I think the tire difference does explain the lap times. R-compounds are generally considered to be 3 or 4 seconds a lap faster than street tires.
