  8. in for this, changes to Daredevil racing's lineup may be made before the next raceday after 3 uninspiring performances from the Bentley in a row on both short and long tracks. more info to follow in the coming days...

  9. You're going to switch from Bentley??
  10. looking that way, it's let me and AC down one too many times in terms of reliability. I was better off in the aston GTE lol. I've pretty much concluded the Bentley is a great sprint race car but it's just not for endurance stints (in pcars that is). shame
    • Sad Sad x 2
  11. Well, I hope someone picks up where you left off! The Bentley is too nice to be left off the grid. I'm sure someone will grab it, I know I would.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  12. It sounds amazing, it feels great, and decently quick for such a fat fragile pig, but that's the thing. It's extremely fragile compared to most of the other cars on the grid, and once the tires get anywhere near halfway worn they suffer from what I can only describe as inconsistent levels of grip and have an unpredictable traction breakaway feel. In races less than 15-20 laps it's amazing and im able to keep up, but any longer than that and it starts rearing its fat head, lol.

    Welp you got 2 weeks of testing. I would like to see some more GTE cars in the field
  14. Have you tried more downforce/higher tyre pressures?
  15. I was running pretty high DF and higher pressures typically break away even more quickly than what I was running. I've been all over this car for quite some time, and I've switched up my driving a bit for the things that just can't seem to be tuned out of it without sacrificing speed unfortunately. I love it, but by the end of the race I hate it lol.

    the McLaren is signifigantly lighter than the both the Bentley and the Merc. We...Well the Bentley is capable of fast laps, and even the SLS, due to more power. After 15-20 laps the tires are worn down and those heavy bitches are sliding all over the place. So I know what you mean. I half spun into the barrier 3 times in the same spot on 3 consecutive laps in turn 12 at Spa, and this was in the dry. But to be honest, I spent a ridiculous amount of time in the Z4 and was improving my lap times every time I went back to a track because of something I learned at the last track. I only hope I can get there quicker in the Merc. Its a good looking car, so I guess I'll just lose in style.
  17. I don't think the Mclaren has as much power as the other GT3 cars though.
    Like I said in the lobby, in my opinion, all the cars have their strengths and weaknesses but, on balance, they are all similar in performance to meet GT3 homologation standards.
