Um, 730hp through that tire? The front end likely has a larger contact patch than the rear? Couldn't they at least have put a proper drag radial on the rear end?

Agreed. Plus theyre low end tires front and back. What a bad allocation of resources...

Most were 4 wheel, which is how ISO (the original manufacturer) designed the car.

Some European countries (UK, Sweden) ended up getting a 3-wheeled one designed for their market. This was after the car had already been out, hence my confusion and giving of misinfomation.
