    Thank you my racing brother.

    The Mustang obviously has better acceleration then the other DTM 92 cars, and I try to exploit that constantly, but it also brakes well at high speeds. I've been trying to push my braking points closer to the corners, and I have found that the Mustang slows down really well from high speed to medium speed. at high speed, you can really mash on the brakes and they won't lock up. from medium speed to slow speed, you have to be more sensitive.

  4. I think the Mustang isn't that much better in acceleration than other cars. Drove it yesterday and followed a BMW on RBR but till around 160km/h I can't see a an decent advantage. Okay, my toe, camber and Diff. settings are different. For me the mustang understeering to much but the car is quite stable, what is positive. Generally, if you see the race results from this 92' season, the Opel and Mustangs are maybe to strong and Mercedes Evo to slow. But we'll never know the real potential when drivers like Ludwig or Stuck had droven it. ;-)

    yeah, it's not that much better then the others. it shifts so slow and has a narrow power band. from a standing start, it's probably the slowest. but, I would say the advantage starts at about 100km/h. but that depends on gear ratios too. with my gearing, I shift less, and hold the peak hp/torque rpm range longer. It's a noticeable advantage compared to default gears.
