    You are right Rhys:

    Specifications

    Total weight: 475Kg. Horsepower: 300 BHP
    Wheel base: 2.90m Aerodynamic drag: Cd 0.24
    Front track: 0.6m Rear track: 1.7m
    O/A length 4.65m O/A width 2.00m
    Height 1.03m Brakes: Carbon discs and pads
    Fuel cell capacity 40 litres Chassis construction: lightweight composite
    Front tire: 4.0/23.0 R15 Rear tire: 12.5/24.5 R15
    Weight distribution: 27.5% Front (72.5% Rear)
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. 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 ;)
     
  4. They have updated their live timing. Looks very fresh now, all testing times are there as well.

  8. Now I see why people on iRacing brake for no reason, the real guys do, lets give it a try :p
     
  9. 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.
     
  10. 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

  11. 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 :)
     
  12. Sadly, I don't think I can watch this race!
     
  13. Any charitive sould to post the qualy results elsewhere?? XD

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

  17. 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.
