    Great tune:) I think you have to do an oil change with it though as I can't get the hp the same as yours at the same pp(gear ratios are fine)

    I am positive that no oil change was done, will have to double check the numbers and see if I posted something wrong.

    Any Silver Chrome will do, I believe this one came with the Anniv. pack, I like it because it is darker yet still chrome. ;)

    That person had a lot of time on his hands. To paint the same car every colour and know which one was which when they exported the file. That takes some organisation.

    BTW, Brands Hatch Seasonal so far:
    • Against Catherham - easy win;
    • Against Rocket - winner (fast and "agressive" driving needed);
    • Against both - winner;
    • Against none - easy win;
    Looking great, so far... :)

    NOTE: WARNING!!!! This car is very picky about how it likes to be driven, get it right and you will enjoy, mess it up and you will be cursing me out and calling me a no-good tuner. It's a feisty car, hard to tune and be happy with, but, I have slapped on Sports Hard Tires and one the Seasonal against the Caterham, Rocket, AND when both are in the lineup. First turn is critical, early easy braking and patience with the throttle, allow it to get into the turn before getting on throttle. GENTLY squeeze the throttle (I use the triggers) and it will be good. Most turn I found myself only using about half brake pressure (again, I use the triggers) and floating the car in and thru. Tricky on SH but if you slap on Sports Soft tires and run the same track in the Tour Of Europe, the car will really come to life. With SH tires I was easily in the 1:36 lap bracket, 1 to 2 seconds faster with SS.
    You have been warned, now feel free to applaud or rip this tune, either way, feedback appreciated.

    I know it, have a little fun with you as well. I really like the look of the car in Canyon Red, did try it in different shades of blue but could not pull the trigger on them. I like this one in red:O.

    Tested so far against (will edit post):
    • Caterham - Result: Winner!
    • Both - Result: Winner!

    Oh boy, how should I review this... scratchchin.gif :

    SIMPLY AWESOME!!!

    The car is super easy to drive (for me)... I throwned everything I had at it and it came out whistle.gif ...
    It drives superbly, huge grip (rear), no understeer or wheelspin...

    After your notes, I was kind of scared on the 1st corner and did a safe 1st lap, but after... nahhh... Full throotle! I was even in doubt of I had forgotten to set the TCS to 0 that after the race went to driving options to check it...

    Fastest Lap - 1:34:555

    Although, I have one small doubt - Isn't 112Kg of ballast a bit much? I noticed that in acceleration the car struggles a bit...

    Will test now other opponents and less rear downforce...

    So far, loving it... :)

    The ballast was needed to get the handling where I wanted and still be 1200kgs, seems a high amount I know but lower ballast and the car handled differently. Glad you liked it, I was in the 1;35's as my best.:O

    Wow, has it been a week since the last post in here:odd:......I actually (more like finally) had time to get some real tuning in this weekend:D. Well it wasn't much time, but I will be posting soon a 470pp Alpine 15th Anniv tune. I used it on SH tires for some Hot Hatch races, then slapped on SS tires and headed to the 500pp Seasonal at Apricot Hill. Could this little engine that could actually take down Vipers, the LFA and 430?????

    Stay Tuned to find out.;)

    NOTE: Tuned on Sports Hard, I did slap on Sports Soft and did the 500pp Intermediate Level Seasonal at Apricot Hill. Easily took down the more powerful supercars, on race 2 I made some changes that did not work as I thought and messed up on lap 4. Still managed to win as you can see below but it was close. Be careful and mindful of the rear stepping out on high speed corners, but it helps. AI will outrun you on the straights but you can destroy them in the corners.:sly:
