    I'd like to sign up for this... hmm, probably SLS or Yellowbird? I'll get back to you once I've done a few laps in each.

  10. Lol...I dont know about the LaFerrari...but the Huayra will lap twice a whole field of Porsches, Mclarens and Mercedes in just 10 laps...:laugh:
    Just too fast.
    But is a great machine. Deserves a night only for itself.;)
     
  11. Edit: /\/\/\ Hah hah hah yeah, you are probably right. I was going to take the Pagani, but yeah... it'd be nutballs.

    As far as the options... I'm guessing by "road" you are referring to the "street" tagged official Kunos cars? When I think "road" I think in terms of "not oval". ;)

    I'll need to try everything to see what I'd be safest in.

    I think I have to go with the SLS for its ABS, Santa's not giving me a load cell so I want to be in the car I can emergency stop if I need to. It's got just as much sideways-fun if you turn off the TC...

  15. Put me down for a Ferrari 458 Italia. I'm assuming the Stage 3 tuned version wouldn't be considered "road legal".

  17. With some spare time, I decided to have fun testing those street cars.
    Those are my personal conclusions, some may not agree!!

    First of all. 2 cars labed as street cars, doenst really fit the concept:
    Pagani Hurayra and LaFerrari.
    Those 2 have special tires, plenty of grip and more power compared with the other street cars, and will have a infinite advantage over the others. Both really feels like proper race cars.

    The street models have 2 types of tires. The semislicks (faster), and the streets.
    With this in mind, I would divide the rest in classes.

    Class 1
    Ferrari F40 (no steps)
    Mclaren MP4/12
    Ferrari 458 Italia (no steps)

    Class 2

    Mercedes SLS AMG.

    Class 3

    BMW Z4
    Porsche RUF
    Lotus Evora GTE Carbon

    This is just for fun, how evenly matched the cars are doesnt really matter, its actually part of the fun that there is massive differences (more passing). There is a downside to picking the hypercars however, you will be done with the race much sooner.

  20. Yeah, but I think that the more equal the cars, the more chances of a good race.
    So was just information. :)
