    The Honda Civic is way too fast compared to for example the BMW 320 in online sessions. For an optimum online experience it'd be nice to have some balanced performance on all cars without loosing their characteristics.

    Some weight penalty would be nice, as it is in real world ... until then we, the others, will try to surprise Civic drivers from the ambush :D

  4. Agreed, maybe a quick and dirty solution would be to enable us to add weight penalty to a specific car serverside?
     
  5. Damn, I got :ninja:'ad!

    This is the reason why when I race online, I try not to pick the fastest car. I go for the next step down or so, that way it makes it a challenge and entertaining for all. Any fast driver can get in the Honda and compete for the win, but to do it in the BMW or Seat makes it more worth it. At that point I dont even car if I win or not, its great when you have a good battle with someone regardless of cars. This goes for all the car classes, to those quick guys out there, challenge yourself.

    I'm not quick but still like to challenge myself.

    Lada FTW.

  10. Even though the Honda is fast you can lose the back end pretty easily.

    I never really thought the Honda was too unfair, although clearly it is the fastest car...and it is racing, so... :)

    Same here James, #11 :)

    At "normal" GP track (cca. 1:30 min.) I am about a second faster with Honda compared to Lada, but joy factor is on Russian side for sure :)

    To be honest I felt the same. Perhaps I just didn't notice it. I don't often drive the Honda - not sure why - as I usually go for the Chevrolet or Lada.
     
  13. I can see with certain groups maybe it being a problem?

    I think the faster guys should pick the slower cars. ;)

  16. Honestly, I didn't see an issue with the balance of the cars in last nights race.
