Ok, this time I'm sticking to my guns (unlike I did with the DTM 2020s!)... I won't be buying this one. I don't disagree with the principle of electric racing cars and I know it's the way everything is heading, but I don't enjoy it myself.

Pretty car though. Always been a fan of the Seat touring cars since Race 07! :thumbsup:

I would buy it if I could play R3E with my Fanatec gear. I've tried everything, but the brakes are too sensitive without ABS. I barely press on the pedal and the wheels lock up.

I tried it too, and I have to say that I hate it. Of course it was difficult for me coming straight from combustion cars, because of the lack of gears and no proper reference for speed when approaching corners. But even once I started getting used to it, the whine got very irritating and the wind noise made me feel like I was flying or something.

Just not exciting or enjoyable for me, sorry. :whistling:

How much of the sound on cars like this is the whine of the electric motors and how much is the regular whine of straight cut gears?
