    Stay a gear higher than you normally would, the car has got a lot of grunt in the lower revs and it's easier to drivs that way!

    Entry understeer, exit oversteer... Does anyone have a trick up his sleeve to make it behave like a semi-decent racecar? :cool:

    @PicoBp

    like Enzo said use one gear higher then you think to use, also it always better to brake earlier with those cars. i'll be on the server one hour before the event tomorrow so if you join with me i'll be able to help you ;)

    I've always hated that car (driving wise, I absolutely love the way it looks though). Time to change! Sign me in, please.

    The car needs a bit of practice to get warm with it, but as most things that don't come easy, it's very rewarding.
    Initially you will be overdriving it and it will seem like it doesn't grip at all. If you stay with it and adapt your driving to the fact you're driving a heavy steel beast with full interior on street tires (brake early, coast through corners, be smooth on exit) it actually becomes very driveable.
    Once you'll get a fair share of practice you'll be surprised how much you can lean on those tires.
    As a general tip i'd say: Drive slower, and you'll be quick in no time.

    This thing does grip if kept in shape :).
