    Power aplenty for the climb and fast speed for the descent our very own version of the V8's should be a treat.

    Bring ear-protection and a crowbar.
    Ear-protection because I'll probably be screaming in terror for the entire race.
    The crowbar is for prying my fingers out of the dashboard afterwards. :p

    Can everybody take some time to watch this video. Honestly, probably in my top 3 best sounding cars. That exhaust sound is insane!

    The sounds are amazing. But i noticed that he never once crashed into the wall. I thought my brother said that I get more points for crashing. have I been mistaken all this time.:(:(:roflmao:

    Amazing right? That's a V8 and yet sounds like a V12. I have to hand it to Judd, they know how to make an engine sound good.

    Lol, the no crashing into the wall is because that is Georg Plasa driving the car. Sadly, he passed away the same year in that same car during a crash into the side of a mountain. :( He will always be a legend, the balls it takes to drive these cars in such tight circumstances at 200+ km/h, unimaginable to me.

    That's why, whenever I see these guys doing hillclimb events, driving around Bathurst, Monaco, Macau, all these places that are insanely difficult to drive at, at ridiculous speeds, I always ask myself if I could do the same...I think not. I'll stick to my computer games. :D

    @motoxy
    Don't worry Bruce, improve a little each day and you'll be Mika Hakkinen before you know it. :D

    Setup attached for anyone who wants it. The car is very tail happy and you can lock the front easily, but it has pretty good brake performance so you don't need to be too hard on them. Just bring the brake bias more towards the rear if you have that issue, as usual.

    Initial turn in is excellent with this car, so you can get on the power very early. Car is extremely stable during the descent allowing you to just throw it into the Dipper. You'll also want some traction control for the climb. ;)
