  2. Thanks Ensyuya!!
    The 550A started as a little physics project on the side, but Ensyuya has put a great effort to make it a fully revised and period correct 3D to go along with it. He even made new sounds.
    Thanks again my friend.

    So here is our second free Porsche mod car! Enjoy!

    A couple of notes:
    Remember, even with improved design (vs the original 1955 550), this car still has a swing arm suspension at the rear and locked differential. So be careful with the throttle in slow corners, the car can bite.
    Optimal tire pressure (hot) is 40 psi.
    You'll need a few corners to warm up the brakes.
    I usually keep rear spring low (as it's linked to camber and lowers the center of gravity too) and adjust oversteer/understeer with front spring. Easily adjustable torsion bars were really appreciated by racers back in the days.

    The car is impossible to setup to be "on rails", oversteer will always lurk. Default setup is very understeery at turn-in, your right foot is in charge of making the car turn. Go for less front spring for more neutral turn-in, however the rear can snap a lot more at exit.
