Does anyone know any good 50s or even 60s era tracks that work well with the Maseratis?
Hah! Those cars are extremely difficult to drive; they won't keep going straight - I have to constantly correct the steering. I gave up on them. If you want an open-wheel car that's very nearly as hard, but doesn't wander on its own, try the Lotus 25. And Grobnik is the best track, bar none!
I had some fun in these at the old monza, I do wonder about the wandering steering though it doesn't feel correct.
Add lots of fuel - that really helps to stabilise them
To me it seems like a stiff suspension + very thin tyres that's causing it. The car is unstable and has very little grip.
Try the 250F at Black Cat County. Seriously fun combo. And the width lets you tame the car, play with it a little more.
It does wander a lot, due to the tires. But after I got used to it, I can pretty much keep the 250F in a straight line at speed. Took a while to get used to though.
As to where else you can drive these cars, well, luckily they're still on track today. So the modern offerings of AC aren't unrealistic.
This video will make you want to try Spa...
I think OP was asking about tracks to drive them on, not for advice on how to give up on the cars.
Have a try at Spa 1966

Mod edit - Please don't post external download links, thanks
I'm a fan of Goodwood too (it's in the downloads section, but I'm at work so can't link it here due to time constraints).
That Spa conversion is poor, sadly. And the layout would be quite tricky for the Maserati.
Yes - I answered that in the last sentence; and added something.
One of the most fun multiplayers I've had was with the Maserati 250's on the old Monza with the banking. Lots of lead changes ( ie everyone went off track at some point), very nerve wracking, a real blast. Very hard to control, but that's the fun part.
Grobnik looks fun, downloading that now. I agree that the cars are a little too unstable in a straight line.
You can see here Fangio never really has to go mad with the steering wheel on straights like you have to in the game.
I find them super fun to drive at Brands Hatch.
Dunno why I haven't thought of that before! Will try that tomorrow.
It's a little hard to tell, because the viewpoint wasn't very clear about the inputs, I agree it looked smoother, but it's difficult to tell what subtle forces he is dealing with. Also he is the master, he was using techniques for the first time, he was a legend. Seriously though I can't imagine that this car is as difficult to drive irl, fun as it is I think the boatiness is overdone. Fun though.
The video itself though is Flipping fantastic, thanks for posting.
@Bokonon : Try this: In the 6cyl, psi at 40, fill the gas tank to at least half full.
Maybe I've just gotten used to the car, because I do drive it a lot. But I can easily drive it in a straight line at speed. I do find myself making small adjustments on a straight, but nothing dramatic. Watching my replays, it looks pretty smooth.
Have you guys tried the Lotus 25? That's even more of a handful than the 49; not as fast, of course, but really demanding, like the Maseratis, but it doesn't wander.
Yeah the 25 is a blast too. The 60s F3 tracks: Elaintarharata (Think I spelled that right) and Ahvenisto are good. (Good in the Maseratis too.)
