    So that is around 1:2 in terms of weight and downforce.
    Still some way to F1 which produces nearly all of it´s weight in downforce on the front wing alone. (about 500kg´s)

    Now that i´ve gotten some more info here from Rhys i have to say i´m excited to see the car in the Porsche curves and on the Le Mans straight.
    And seeing the tire wear on the front tires.

    Edit: also seeing the weight distribution i´d like to know the CoP as well.

    Please, don't praise Nissan for that, they only rebadged a Chevy engine in the story ! Project 21 I think it's called is behind the car ;)

    They have updated their live timing. Looks very fresh now, all testing times are there as well.

    Strange lines he takes in T2 & T4. For T4 i take a much wider apex to get a higher top speed on that long straight. T2 looked like he turned in early. Have to try that in iRacing, probably quicker.

    Best sounding engine in the competition, 9-10.000rpms of raw V8 sound.

    Sorry you are incorrect, the Corvette has the best sound. Nothing compairs to the rumble that they make (I can't believe I am going to say this but the v8 Aston sounds really good as well). :p

    I prefer a more finely tuned engine noise then a rumble :) I like screamers you like brawlers.
    Aston V8 is probably one of the most horrendously sounding cars i know :)

    Should be an interesting race tomorrow. An awful lot of cars on a relatively short track.

    Ferraris are looking very strong!!

    Vette´s as well, should be interesting to see how different it is compared to last year as drivers said it felt like a new car almost.
