    That first turn and the exit of turn 3 i think going up hill is super tricky.

    I will be there for sure. Should I not show up, call 911. That's what it would take for me not racing this.

    Although, Londrina short is a real tough track. As usual, the AI at 100% drive as if they were about to fall asleep, yet they are a second faster than me on average. I think it's mostly due to some turns where I am not quite as consistent as I would like. T1/2 is really tough to enter always the same way and a bad entry can cost you a full second right there.
    T3/4 is another problematic turn. Any minute divergence from the racing line and you are all over the place, losing time not only in the turns proper, but in the straight after it.

    But this mod is so much fun, I don;t care where I finish (obviously) just racing it is a treat.

    I remember the first edition of the V8 cars on the original GSC, I liked the cars, but they would soon lose the font end and become really hard to steer. They have solved that problem in 2013 and now they are a blast all around.

    If i brake too late into T1 I pretty much end up spinning 90% of the time and getting the power down out of 3 without the back end braking lose is also very hard, will be an interesting race and im defiantly expecting some crashes.
