Blimey, the viscoelastic nature of tyre rubber is why it is so difficult to managing tyre strategy. I have a feeling BS1 and I are going to have to quote " Viscoelastic Nature " a bit more often when we describe the variables causing massive confusion with the dynamics of types. I know Blacksheep never Tyres of explaining race rubber, as he is the Viscoelastic Guru of TMO!!
