Has anyone noticed if the different makes feel different to drive? I haven't really driven more than one yet.

The differences are subtle but they are there.
There are 3 'grades' of Cosworth engine and aero efficiency is slightly different as well.
I still think the driver makes the difference though.

Of all the cars I've driven the fittipaldi seemed the odd one out, something wrong with alignment settings or maybe just me. The rest seemed very close and if you look at the server times the main difference was getting used to the cars (eg. slowest car driven first). I'm still racking my brain how kcender and the like can be 2-3 seconds faster. I'm giving it all she's got captain lol

Agree i was happy with my time and its nearly 2 seconds off kcender. I was 100% stock setup.

Anyone know optimum pressures for these?

Use 'Content Manager' and either 'Race Essentials or 'Sidekick' and no one need ever ask this question again.  ;)

Thanks BDO, I fixed a small error in the front wing on this and another car. But all I can find on the FD03 is that it has fuck all trail so maybe that makes it feel odd?

Patch updated, same link as in the OP (i.e. no need to change it Wally)

It feels like it wants to sway? from one side to another, transitions aren't nice compared to the other cars and I couldn't get toe to near zero, it was a quick fiddle in settings so it could have just been me

There are some setup limitations in different cars.
In some, the best I can get is 0.17 rear.
But this is affected by ride height and spring rating.
This is why I like these cars, you can't always get the perfect setup as change options were limited, due to pre-design simulation limitations. ;)
(I don't know if each cars limitations are accurate, just that era cars were never perfect)

For authenticity, did these cars use sequential stick gears or H pattern? Or did it vary from car to car? It's hard to find many references on the net.

H pattern or Dog Leg for all of them.

I think Bazza (you know I really should just ask him but, I'm terminally shy), models the suspension off the 3d model of the car which gives each car different physics. I don't know if he then does any adjustments as some of the 3D models can be way off, and it only take a few mm in some cases to reverse certain actions of the suspension.

I got somewhat comfortable in the FD03 by slamming the ride height(the FD03 also has a higher CoG than some of the other cars) and stiffening the front, your mileage may vary.

Thanks, that matches at least some old photos I found.
