Hi Wally, can you get me in-game no 40, the plain black one, please?OK
Ha. That's quite understeery too if you come in too fast, but at least you don't have to slow to 20 kph to make a cornerThe Mustang Mach 1's are horribly understeery - you turn the wheel and it feels like nothing's happening

Meet the Driver – Kcender87
It’s time to meet XGN league racer Kcender87. Kcender87 won his first XGN championship last season racing the BMW M235i, winning 9 out of 21 races. Kcender87 first raced with XGN in December 2016 in Season 15 in the Praga R1, where he won his very first race and followed that up with a second place and another win in the opening round, sending a message to the leaders that here was a contender for the pointy end of the field.
Kcender87 also had great success in the Lotus Exos 125 and the LMP1 seasons, finishing both of those seasons in 2nd place. His success has been limited only by him being unable to attend all rounds in a season. With more consistent attendance, I’m sure we’d see him take a season podium position more often.
In the overall XGN racer rankings, Kcender87 is in second place, behind legendary racer Guybrush Threepwood. He has also put in the most consistent lap times more than any other XGN racer.
XGN: What is your favourite style of car to race and why?
Kcender87: To race? Any category that allows the field to find about the same overall lap speed but in different ways - a standardised formula with various interpretations meeting that formula. Porsche Cup etc are great too but can end up with the field line astern with not so much close racing but close driving for lack of a better description.
That said I tend to find myself always going back to the historics (Group C, old DTM, old F1 and old old old F1) for the most enjoyment. Feeling the thing move under you and the more progressive and slightly rubbish tyres make them enjoyable. That said, I am a massive fan of the F2004 for some entirely different reason too.
XGN: Do you have any real-life racing or trackday experience?
Kcender87: Just hill-climbs, karting and a few track days here and there over the years in various different cars - nothing properly competitive though - that costs time and money and the damage tends to usually be someone else's fault
XGN: Are you for or against success ballast, and why?
Kcender87: To achieve a balance of performance and bunch up the field I dont have an issue with it - its likely the best of a long list of far from perfect solutions and it should tend to have a similar effect as above at (1). Only tends to become an issue with secondary consequences such as where it has compound effects at one track (say with long straights and up hill sections like RedBull Ring) where the impacts go beyond the simple additional weight.
That said, everyone is subject to the same rules so get over it and drive the car
I just had a go in each of the cars. The RAF and Melkus are good fun. The Mustang Mach 1's are horribly understeery - you turn the wheel and it feels like nothing's happening
The Boss's are good fun - the 429 is a handful.
The Formula Student has unbelievably twitchy steering. What's the steering lock - 5%??? The Caterhams also have a very tight steering lock, but are fun to drive.

I loved to be in the open wheelers again but the head shake was killing me and just couldn't focus. Don't seem to have the shake at A1 Ring.
You can turn the head shake off or down in the AC launcher, can't you?
A F2004 season is definitely on the cards, I reckon. People were already able to drive and race well in this one practice race. As someone mentioned, lack of KERS and DRS means speeds are more consistent and predictable, so it's easier to race close.
The Formula Abarth is a relatively boring car, but yes it's available as a compromise open wheeler as well. It's a long time since we've raced it.
