    Sign me up with a little star, because I have to be at work on Friday, but I will try to come home at the time.

    One question, will you guys drive with ABS and TC or without?

    Definitely without TC or ABS Matej.
    I want it Raw.
    These beasts are so earthy and gutsy I don't want to water it down.
    I may even make my TV in black and white to evoke the period!

    When I tried them earlier I didn't use assists so I'll just keep them off, more of a challenge :D

    In same strange, unexplained and masochistic way I like it even more without any assists, so I will keep them off too :).

    ok, i don't think i signed up but to save confusion, i wont be in this. sorry. the car feels awful. maybe i'm used to modern day but i can't relate to this historic stuff. i drove it for 1 minute (if that), ended up in a bush (which i couldn't get out of) and decided i'd rather practise for the gt3 club at laguna seca.
    sorry guys!

    Are you seriously questioning my balls:mad:
    Just kidding:roflmao:
    Saw the event. I drove the car once at Monza and loved it. I had a few sound issues at the old Spa track, but that could have been car telated as well.

    I will give it a maybe as I have only done a few laps at Laguna Seca and there are some quick guys out there who are trying to steal my GT3 crown:confused:

    /edit: According to the link the G4 MkIII should be the best with 335kph top speed, which is a bit insane

    Will be completly off pace, but this combination is just too much fun :D

    I'm in :thumbsup:
     
  18. These cars actually give very good feedback and are not difficult to drift. Wow. That Gp6 Mk IIIb is a BEAST! I guess that's what the "b" stands for. ;) Sign me up.
