    Totally planted at 90 mph. I had a 997 c4s and my 2012 R8 4.2 feels more solid. Bridgestone S02's on stock rims.

    Maybe a stupid question but do you have the Dynamic Steering option? Would that change the feel of the car?

    At very high speeds, the Dynamic Steering feels pretty "stiff" and not light at all, very safe drive feel, no issues.

    took it out again today after inflating tires to door jamb specs. Still feels like it is wandering at 85MPH. Kinda feels like a cars feels when you are driving in a big crosswind. I guess I will call service however not confident in their expertise with this car type.

    This really does sound like poor suspension geometry. If it were me I would make a visit to a good set up shop and have it checked.

    The door jams psi are BS. car will feel like it is on ice. Run all 4 wheels at 35 psi. And as soon as you can ditch the P Zeros and get some MSC2s. 245/30/20 P Zeros are 3/4 of inch narrower tread then 245/30/20 MSC2s

    I just checked my tire pressure, and my indy shop filled the tires to 45 psi when they installed my PSS. i lowered them down to 40 and felt a HUGE difference, going down to 36 tomorrow and will report back.

    Re: Loving my car but have question.

    I just picked up my new, Gen 2, R8 V10 Plus, last Friday and I noticed the same sensation of instability at higher speeds, but only when it was quite windy. I don't remember my Gen 1 feeling this way. I followed the suggested pressure recommendations: 42 front and 36 rear I think. I'll lower them both to 36 and see if there is a difference.

    It could just be that the tires are new and a bit squirrelly until they wear a bit.
