Man this is a fast track! CONCENTRATION ++ After 2-3 laps I thinking, "I need a rest!" :)

Found a very large bump mid track as you enter the "North High Speed" that can throw the car off infield, the hard way of course.
The bumpy surface is tough on the arms too, but at least not a lot of gear changes, at least in the GT40, I think I a good season choice when it comes to this track.
This is going to be a race to remember too, the faint hearted need stay home heheh.

Question from a newbie - there is a yellow and red F40 Ferrari, I'm just wondering which one is the correct one as I noticed the yellow has slightly better performance figures?
thanks in advance,
bradc

The red one is the correct one.

I'm guessing that the yellow one is a stage 1 (or 3?) upgrade, from memory, with higher performance specs.

Any chance of limiting the tire choices on the F40? The poor old Porsche needs some degree of hope  for race!

Phil, I was thinking of increasing the "slipstream effect" from x1 to x2 or even x3 to allow for the slower top speed of the 908, I think it will even out the difference and even create closer racing on this unique circuit.

how do you do that
Good question, I presumed it would be in the server options, but discovered it is not in my server setup options.
In Offline mode it is under tyre wear, fuel consumption etc. I guess it must be possible to change, but beyond my knowledge.
I guess other option would be try Street 90s tyres and see what lap times are being set.

Its not possible to change this in a server, its only an offline option. This track is very much a power circuit as its full throttle maybe 95% of a lap in nearly any car. So whichever car gets the higher top speed will pretty much always be quicker there, you do have the option of limiting tyres but thats only going to effect 4 corners of the lap and I dont think it would have much effect on the cars through the banking but it will also effect tyre wear over a longer run.

You may be best off using the old simple ballast to slow down the faster cars at this track.  ;)
