the KTM isn't the best example here :whistling: it has a lot of aero for a car of its class, in the VLN GT3 drivers tell about the KTM being almost as fast in tight corners, but "surprisingly slow" on straights
Pretty sure it's got a wee engine and hp compared to the others. I've seen them up close and think it resembles a kit car or a track only car. It is quick through corners but that is also owing to it's feather weight.

Its kind of nice they are adding some new content. I dont do allot of time in ACC so I will wait for a sale price on the new DLC. Plus I dont follow these real series racing. If they added the US-America series racing I might be more interested. But I am not holding my breath hoping they will add it.

I am hyped af. I would love to see difference in chasis rigidity between GT4s and GT3s. And GT4 is way more entertaining than GT3 IMO. Less downforce, less power, closer racing, production based vehicles... I just hope we will get Supra, Mustang, F-type and Ginetta with British GT dlc. For now, 3 of my favourites GT4 cars are here: M4, KTM and GranTurismo.
British DLC currently announced as track pack only. We'll have to see if they add liveries and/or cars too.
But since multiclass will most likely not happen, this will never be a true representative of the British GT championship anyway (sadly).

That is the beauty of BOP. The KTM has a small 2litre 4banger derived from Audi (e.g. TT).
It will be hard to beat in corners, but will surely lack power on straightaways.
But the overall lap times over the full season are balanced with other marques /types.

You can compare it a little bit to the McLaren 720GT3 where the advanced aero accounts for the (presumably) lowest horsepower in the GT3 field (smallest diameter restrictor). I heard the number 480 somewhere whereas others should have 500 or north of 500.

Should make things interesting. I remember being in an online race where I was driving the formula abarth and some other guy was in the huayra, he'd fly off on the straights, I'd catch him in the corners, I eventually pulled away enough so that he couldn't make it back on the straights.

The visual artists are studying hard to learn C++ but it's taking longer than expected.
An official communication regarding the awful state of CP servers would be nice I guess.
Having customers in the dark on an issue like this for 2 weeks is quite bad. Maybe they should add PR skills to the learning

Hmm it's 11 cars, so far we had 3 cars previewed in 5 days.. so if they keep this pace it's going to be at least mid July. I hope they don't make us wait for so long.
