    Hello,

    I've tried the Caterham 270R at brands hatch indy. It's very fun but each time I downshift, the car is upset at the rear even in medium slow speeds (90-120 km/h).

    It's very noticeable when downshifting from 3rd to 2nd. And of course I loose too much time !

    Does this car requires to Blip the throttle before releasing the clutch ?

    Any tips will be welcome :)

    Thanks

    yep .. heel and toe .... 270R is H pattern if I`m not mistaken ... never really noticed issues with proper shifting ... or let revs drop to reasonable values (which will be slow)

    Yes, it's H pattern like one of the 360R which is H pattern too, but I've never noticed any huge upset in the 360R and can go really fast.

    Thanks :)
