I'm in of course, really enjoying GTL more and more. :)

Which car is less likely to blow it's engine Kari, and still be reasonably competitive too?

This should be some fun driving in this one. I'm very interested in people's car choices.
I've had a quick squirt in a few of them now and finding them great to drive (well mostly), but most surprisingly I am getting similar times despite the fact that each one seems to handle totally differently. None of the times are much good, but just so similar.
It looks to me as though this race could be pretty close as far as the cars are concerned.

So far (very little testing though) my times with the Pantera, Capri, BMW, Porsche 911, are all within a second of each other. I did manage a quicker time in the Corvette but don't think there is any chance I would try to risk that monster in a 35 lap race, lol.
I'm leaning towards the Pantera, only because it looks and sounds awesome, however that Capri goes like a cut snake, I just can't seem to get the hang of it's handling (understeering badly).

Must say, I'm having a ball just trying them all out. The driving model in GTL is fantastic.

What's everyone else thinking of driving?

EDIT: Just managed a similar time in the Escort, how on earth do I choose. Think I'll just continue the fun by practicing in all of them. :jumping:

I only succeed to blow engine from pantera and escort as pantera you can set your rev limit and escort engine will blow due the engine braking if over rev it.

Hmm... My car choise? Capri is my favorite no doubt, but i also thinking pantera. I have only one pantera race under my belt, so maybe this is second one:). They never allowed it in altbierbude, because it's like GT40 in 65:( Anyway i can't decide yet as i'm working long days on this week. If i get some practise time, then ill take the pantera and that should be fun:thumb:

It'll propably be Pantera or Porsche for me. I need to test some more out. Maybe we can have a CROW day doing some races on various circuits to test some out?
I know I have a hard time driving most of these cars! LOL!

EDIT: Did some testing and I feel most comfortable with the Porsche 906. Best time so far is 1:58.9... so need some more practice...

I'm in!!

My suggestion would be to remove the DiTomasso Pantera from the carlist, because it dominates this class, I think (or make sure Kari doesn't drive it :D).

I'm prolly going to go for the Porsche 906, but I might a consider different car.

Well I can assure you that the Pantera won't dominate with me behind the wheel :ambulance: , but I'd like to try it just for the fun and challenge of keeping it on track.
Maybe Kari is prepared to go for something else just to give himself a challenge, rather than lapping the rest of us. :D

Maybe ill take 914!? Nah, i chose from these: escort, pantera, 906, 911, capri. For me it's guite hand full job to keep pantera or 911 on track.

In last race Yoeri was faster than me at the begining of the race and did only two mistakes (one spin and pit). And if ezpi is join into race, also he will be extrem fast with capri:alla: Not to mention what Jesper can do:thumb: All this and more, and we should get very thigh race, despite what car ill take. So there is no worry about one man dominant... I hope.

I haven't tried the 906 for fuel but:

I have reduced my car choice to either Pantera or Porsche 911 with the preference for the 911 because I can control it better over a longer distance.
I tested the 911 over 35 laps and it made it with lots to spare and even the Pantera looked like it would make the distance comfortably (I didn't manage 35 laps without smashing it into a wall :eek: :brancard: :ambulance: ).

So, I would say most of the cars will not need a fuel pitstop for this one.
Tyres or damage should be the only reason to pit (or Stop n Go penalty :) ).
