    The only thing I know is that the layout showed in the video is not the one Evo has. :)

    You don't HAVE to use the GTR2 cars Bram!

    And, no they're not balanced as they are clones in terms of handling from before the updated performance patch, I don;t think they should be used. The Ferrari and Porsche on the other hand are well balanced.

    The GT Sport add on cars are much faster than the cars that come with the game.

    The add on track for GT Legends is very inaccurate. ;)

    I know, which is why I suggested using the Endurance layout. :)

    Yes, but they are more fragile, so in an Endurance race it balances out.

    Agreed. How many of Add-On Cars Finish at Paul Ricard?

    Pro - None - No One Picked Any Of Them.

    Sport - 1 Finished - 3 Started. :)

    Exactly. There more likely to get a Mechanic failure because of the high revs.
    I drove the Porsche and the C6 but prefer the c6. The C6 is less twitchy and feels solid. And i was only seconds 3 sec faster with the Porsche. On the Nord.

    I know but the power of the Porsche is in the high revs. And in the Corvette in the lower revs in a enduro i like that more. Check the torque of both cars. :wink2:

    Or am i wrong?

    I know Nord with eyes closed!!! :loco: No, really, I know the track, I just don't like it!!!! It's too long, I don't know... Too narrow, not much overtaken points besides that huge straight in the end...

    The first time I raced there, I practice 3 days until I memorized all the turns!!!! I only race there 2 times!!!! 2 Endurances!!!! This is gonna be my third enduro there, the longest one... :)

    Anyway, I'm gonna race wherever it is, but I'd prefer to do it on Watkins. Seems like a beautiful track, with nice battles to come...

    I think live timing and a live broadcast would be far more interesting on Watkins rather than the horrible (b)ordscleife...no?

    Could you please elaborate on that?

    If you think there is an overtake contest in this endurance races, I'm afraid you might be into disappointment...

    Regarding myself, in both endurance events I've been here at RD, I can't remember a single overtake for position in my Spa race and as for the Paul Ricard one, unimportantly I lost one position early on and nothing more.

    As matter of fact in all my endurance events I always follow my line and don't follow defensive lines as the all concept of a defensive line for 180 minutes is above me.

    These events are all about tactical fights regarding pit-stops and race pace, many times simracers are separated in the racetrack for a few seconds but they are following different race tactics, it’s a different kind of race/fight...

    For instances, for overtaking bonanza, I do RDTCC sprints (in short STCC tracks) where on the last race 8 cars were all within 2 seconds gap a big part of the race... a very different “thrill” then what I "get" from endurance events.

    Quite Correct Only Reason i had to overtake you at start at Paul Ricard was because i was running a Complete Different Strategy to you. And it Hinged on keeping up with Haba. :D
