    Stick me down as a Maybe. Have visitors calling on Thursday, but I may be able to usher them out the door before qualifying - if I don't offer them drinks :D

    Is this a loaded question? :whistling:
    I will bite.
    Putting it simply a car does not handle like it used to since a physics update sometime ago,11 Jul, 2018
    Unfortunately I find this and many ofter cars now back end happy. I just get the impression that most of the cars are doing the same thing. Which means very little grip from the back. And it is extremely difficult to find it if at all.
    These cars will sneak into a corner under braking that's if you haven't even locked up which is extremely easy, ridiculously easy. You get the horrible sensation of floating at the back end. Front tyres in the dry rear tyres in the wet.
    They are extremely difficult to find a setup that works completely. If it isn't over-steering out of slower corners it's under-steering out of faster ones. I said some months ago they've tried to fix something that wasn't broken, it is now ish, IMO. It's difficult to drive but it is atill fun but not as much as it used to be. As I believe it doesn't behave the way it should or would expect.
    Too match tampering with this car and to be honest to match tampering with a few more. Sure some cars needed a good looking at and they were pointed out, many times over a long period. And I would say they've done a good job and getting them to an acceptable standard. But I didn't see any complaints about the handling, physics of this one or others that have been "fixed" the want for a better word.:whistling:
    But other than that I suppose it's ok, I just think it was better once.

    Nope, a genuine question since they were tweaked in the patch and I haven't had a chance to give them a proper go yet. I've seen some praise for them on the S3 forums, but all mentioned that it "moved around more", which is something I'm personally not overly keen on. Sounds like you feel the same, so I welcome your feedback. :thumbsup:

    They remind me of group C's, without the turbo.

    Locking brakes way too easily and even more inclined to swap ends on corner entry lift off.

    Horrible little things with no redeeming features whatsoever.

    Can you tell I'm not keen :roflmao:

    Despite what we have said it does have a and sort of a redeeming features and that is it sounds very good. And the gearbox isn't too bad either.
    And unfortunately to add to the not so good and surprisingly it's quite bad over curbs. Tends to oversteer quite easily but that could be my setup.
    Overall like I said I think the car is difficult to drive. Not the easiest for a rookie or somebody that's new to Sim racing.

    Very handsome Kenny.


    A side note my pc just shorted out and its dead. Had a similar issue this morning but struggling to fix it this time. Trying to find a solution. Probably just needs a new power unit.
