    Thought I'd start running some laps today, so jumped in to the Aston and started driving...quite nice I thought.

    Then into the Ferrari. 1 lap later I needed a trip to the bathroom to clean up! What a fantastic noise. Then I did a few more laps and realised my headphones were set to 2.1 and switched them to 7.1.
    Another trip to the bathroom later and I have a BIG SMILE on my face :redface: . Never been a Ferrari fan, but this car has changed my mind

    **EDIT**
    Would it be possible to get the server up early, as I'd like some help driving the circuit and with setup please.

    And are there any skins that people will be using?

    I don't know Tim.... the Ferrari definitely has a nice sound and I also enjoyed the extra gear, but I was still over a second faster with the aston martin =)

    I must admit, I am also a big 007 fan, so that might explain my better laptimes LOL

    We'll only be using the default Ferrari skin, and the skins that come with the DB4 mod.

    I can put a server up tonight, but be aware that other admins may take it down for their events.

    I will be posting my setups monday morning. But don't expect too much from me, these older cars are a bit harder for me to dial in than the 76ers.

    LOL Ulli, I can't do setups, so the Aston is very tail happy out of corners under acceleration, while the Ferrari is quite well behaved.

    @Carlos: Any setups are greatly appreciated mate, as I normally get them really wrong!

    @Stuart: nice one, I'll be on for a hour later

    OK - just had a cheeky 10 minutes with Hans & Steve on half RAM - I'll deffo be there Tuesday, even if it means turning the details down or whatever.

    The Aston may not feel it, but it's double quick :good: That big old fat torque band just keeps going and going.:D

    Two great cars Carlos, and a deceptively tricky circuit. Good mix again.

    Aston is nice, but it still feels nervous going into corners.

    The Ferrari is a pure bred race car, great noise, great feel.

    But my times are the same with both cars. Go figure...
