    Yeah, that one can be all over the place. No clue.

    Tried 2 tracks. Big willow is like this, but next track would save the new best lap.

    Viper was hilariously outgunning Mercedes in both the Gr.3 and Gr.4 department. Since these two manufacturers are the closest ones in terms of drivetrain (FR) and shape/size, it should only be reasonable that they are balanced between each other for a start.

    The Gr.3 Viper just ran away with it on the straights (especially at a place like Le Mans) while the AMG Gr.3 had to stay within slipstream at all times to keep up (unable to go side by side without losing speed). Also, its' gears are much shorter and thus the acceleration from them would thrash the AMG in exiting corners. Fuel was also much easier to manage with the SRT. Now the AMG is able to at least do something (like properly overtake), not just act like a sitting duck and get murdered on the straights.

    The Gr.4 Viper was like taking off 20-30 kgs from the SLS and slapping on another 50 downforce front and back (about 2-3 tenths faster). There was no way it could keep up with the SRT in the long run (SLS had and probably still has very bad fuel economy).

    It had to be done, the differences were too large. I hope you can understand.

    P.S. Imo the SLS needed a bigger buff than this (still way off the pace of higher tier Gr.4 cars), perhaps a 2% weight decrease instead of 1%, but any improvement is ok.

    Welcome, fellow Jag driver! :cheers:

    In all honesty, the Gr3 Jag is near the bottom of its class. I think a weight loss was the better option but maybe it will be the straightline machine given the other cars lost power.

    I tried something out just now I did a bronze time on 1 of the driver challenge’s. The only way to get a gold time was to beat my previous gold time , only then did it change.
    Guess this will next weeks latest update fix

    I also had some issues with the F1 spinning out. Play with the tune, I was able to make it stable.

    I've been racing it at interlagos, it's still slow unfortunately. But it looks cool

    The F1 Mercedes is still crap. The worst F1 I ever drive on games eventhough I could beat its GT League races with custom setting. :(

    Well, looks like staying with Lexus was a safe bet.

    Honestly, I was able to keep up with it before AND after the BOP so I frankly don't understand how people find it OP.

    Whats wrong with it??? I didnt think it was undrivable before the update, it just sounded weird on downshifts. The car flies, I cannot believe how fast it is. After driving the Merc if you to a Gr4 car it feels like something is wrong with it.

    It just doesn't make sense to me why you don't just need enough space for just the update instead of the whole game. Once again I know little about computers, I would probably be better off attempting brain surgery rather than trying to program a computer. It seems to me that you would then have 2 copies of GTS inside of your PS4, the original one I was playing yesterday and the new updated one I played today. :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    To me it makes as much saying that you need a full 5 quart capacity of space in your oil pan to add the 1 quart of oil that is low.

    At low speeds it just spins out all the time. It's slightly better now that it downshifts properly, but still tight hairpins (like Suzuka), are just impossible. Once it is accelerating, or above 150 kph it's fine, though.

    That’s basically how high downforce cars work. They’re incredibly unstable at low speeds, but once they get moving, the downforce glues them to the road. Watch practice sessions, how many spins happen at high speed, how many happen at low speed.

    You'll definitely need rear biased brakes if you don't have it that way already. Assuming the power curve hasn't changed much with the bump, you shift short of the rev bar filling up. Too bad we don't get points for looks because that's the only real compliment I have for the Gr3 Jag. :lol:

    I don’t think the car handles very well at all..... seems very unstable , even the AI struggles with it. I imagined it would handle close to the f1 2017 model but no, it’s far too loose, and the DRS can just frack off

    And the people who still spin a lot in 2nd will no doubt still blame PD.

    Wait, what's the error?

    Kinda. But the older counterpart, F1500T, seems to be not as unstable as the F1 2017 at low speeds for some reason.

    That's just a wrong corner. Very unrealistic and bad design.

    the letter "O" is slightly cut from above in GTS
    also the "PLAYSURE CLUB" decals has been rotated to the correct position in 1.24

    I would suspect all content, be it cars, tracks, features, events are being developed concurrently. It isn’t one or the other and PD will no doubt know what they plan to release 6 months from now.

    Likewise there would be no point introducing a new weather system before the new tyre model.

    The W08 is loads better than it was, but the diff or gearing is still wrong to me. It’s drivable now which is good, but it goes up through 1-4 way too fast? Anything below 4th is a certain spin pretty much. The downforce on these things is immense, but even in sixth and seventh it can feel loose.

    I don’t expect these things to be easy to drive far from it, but to me the behaviour of them isn’t right still.

    I just noticed we’ve got false starts now, do they work properly?

    The 1500T is supposed to be an F1 car from the 80s, so it has not nearly as much downforce, and softer suspension (more mech grip).

    The F1500T-A is based on the 80s F1 car which has turbo lag, making it more predictable on when its power comes. The F1 W08 is the modern F1 car with not only Turbos that have no lag (thanks to anti-lag system) but also has the Hybrid system, which makes power delivery much more instant. Its kinda like the LMP1 Hybrids, but quicker on delivery (and torque) so it definitely requires much more steady modulation (and possibly some messing around with the diff)
