    Is it weird that I'm more comfortable with the Lamborghini then I am with the Fiat :odd:

    Word on the street is you need to be more careful, or your going in the pipe and will get smoked

    Be patient with it and learn when it snaps. Roll on the throttle gentler, the sweet spot feeling in this car is when you use up the grip. So go a tad easier and then pick up the aggressiveness on gas slowly. Focus on minimum steering on the exit portion of the corners. Treat the car as if it is one of those old turbo F1 cars where the turbo kicks in hard at a certain rpm as is with the power curve on this car.

    I'm all down for helping people to learn the Lambo, it's a good car with dynamics in all aspect, from a good turn in response to a good trail braking response, and it doesn't just push or snap when you get on the gas, people expect to get on the gas like all the previous combo's have had so far and spin out, now is the time to work on your right foot sensitivity. Roll on the throttle like you would with a motorcycle, I think that is a better analogy and it sticks in my mind better than simply saying being progressively stepping on the gas.

    Feel free to tag me or PM me and let me know when you guys get on track, I'll hop online and do what I can.

    As remember way back when! Zero would inform a driver to meet him in a private room to have a discussion.

    I don't find this very appropriate as @JLBowler already stated this needs to cease on the thread.

    I see no practice pictures! Photographers get on it! Only @shmibal_GT has posted pictures of the fiat.

    I understand everyone wants the power of the Lamborghini but I like handling way better.

    The last one will do nicely. Although that Aussie GTO looks fun also.

    I got to photo this last weekend. Not quite a GTO but pretty nice. This image is one my wife took. I wish I was as good a photographer as she is.

    Who's going to be around and have a room open after midnight? Or should I just open a practice room myself and post it here?

    Fire alarms are going off in the dorms again. I'm surrounded by idiots. Can't wait to get my own house/racing cave next year.
