    Thanks @Bowtie-muscle for the great reviews :tup: I did the Alpine because I had it in my garage and nobody else had done it yet and it is a fun car to drive!!!

    I'll check the LSD on the Audi and lower it to see how it handles, Thanks Again!!!

    For these cars, they must be installed. I understand if you did not see that in the opening post.

    Try adding it and updating if you can please.

    Sorry, didnt notice, but was there any Chevys on there? :p :lol: Way to start the month Bowtie, thats a nice big list to choose from :)

    Hopefully I can get some playing time this week to get some more cars tried out and reviewed. Still got to try those little S2Ks yet.

    There are only "5" Chevy to choose from, but Viper only has 4 so........:dopey:

    Still have 4 of them to post, but hopefully soon. But the GTS '13 can be fun, the Casi and Shelby are fun but much slower. :)

    @TurnLeft has been going through some health issues the past few months so that's why he hasn't been around that much and he also got a PS4 too!!

    Took @shaunm80 and @Bowtie-muscle 's Maserati's out and here is what I think of them. Mind you, they were not tested on the same day, but I did write notes on them, so they're better than nothing.

    First, @shaunm80.
    Car: 600 PP SS tune
    Track: Eifel Woods
    - this car is very stable
    - easy to drive; handling is very good
    - great speed
    - just a blast to drive
    Time 1:32.417

    Car: 550 PP SS
    Track: Eifel Woods
    - same as above, but with lower power
    Time 1:35.499

    Car: 600 PP GT3 RH
    Track: Grand Valley Speedway
    - maybe my driving is a little rusty, but first impressions are kinda mixed
    - try to avoid curbs, 50-50 chance you'll wipe out
    - car has speed, and that's not the issue
    - handling seems slightly tight, wants to rotate
    - not sure if tune is not made for track
    Time 1:51.249

    Lastly, @Bowtie-muscle 's tune on RH
    Track: Grand Valley Speedway
    - handling has the same problem as above; not sure if it's me or the tune, but it just doesn't sit right with me
    - seems faster than above; beat my Jag time handily
    - I don't know, it seems off to me
    Time 1:49.972

    Maybe this car favours the SS tunes more than the RH tunes, I don't know.

    Thanks for the reviews. Great time set on the SS tune. Glad you enjoyed that version as much as you did. I am not sure why road cars on RH tyres are more problematic but I fear this is not the only car affected by this. Thanks for all the time you are putting in with these tests. :)

    Edit: I am pretty sure when I tuned this car, it was tuned on Silverstone GP Circuit as I intended it to beat proper GT3 cars in one of the career races.

    Thanks for the review, it's Not you it's the tune. Took that one out recently on two different tracks, Eifel Woods where it was really fast but slightly tricky. Not bad for me but can see others struggling. The other track, well I can't say yet, but quite quick but not as good as I thought. Could use some refinement, so I appreciate the feedback and understand the impression that you got.

    Had a quick test of @Antares26's S2000 at Trial Mountain. Did a 1:26.912 with a little room for improvement. Nice little machine this one :)

    I'll post a full review later in the week on this and the other S2K once I've taken them to a few more testing venues :tup:

    @sinof1337 IS F / A110 1600s review:

    IS F 550pp RH:
    Well balanced, great grip. I lowered the final gear to 3.700.
    My version was at 600pp as was @shaunm80, 550pp served this car much better. Turn in and mid corner are excellent, exit is smooth and easy to get on the power. Only slipped once and that was due to a curb.
    Well done.
    Best lap at Deep Forest Reverse - 1:18.220

    A110 1600s at 530pp SS:
    Almost flawless :eek:, even with lower rear ride height it's very stable.
    Found your LSD strange, but it work fantastic.
    Minor, very minor weight shift in the rear once in awhile just to remind you it's RR.
    Great, fun tune. Only had issue with one corner, at the top of the hill before the first tunnel. Once I got it right I was good. From the second tunnel to the finish line however, this car was awesome.
    Best lap at Deep Forest Reverse - 1:21.235


    @Antares26 C 63 AMG / 135i coupe review:

    C63 AMG 550pp RH:
    Not a big fan of this car, at all. That said, 550pp was a better pp range the previous 600pp.
    Easier to handle and control, but still has rear grip issues on exit (obviously, this car is born with that issue). Well balanced otherwise, and once you get the throttle control and patience needed for exit this car gets much better. Good brakes and a very well built trans.
    Just drive it easy and do not brake too late, all will be well.
    Best lap at SSR11 - 3:07.609

    135i coupe 520pp RH:

    Really well tuned car for this track. Flowed nice and easy to drive.
    The rear tires never did seem to warm up and were almost always blue :odd:, although I did have one corner (just one) where the rear would slide slightly and light up the outside rear wheel. And it did it on most laps but every where else it was really good. Was able to drive it harder than expected, but be careful in the bumpy sections. All in all, a really good tune.
    Best lap at SSR11 - 3:08.922


    @lBt_33 135i coupe review:

    Good tune with great handling. Getting on the throttle too early or hard between the 2nd and 3rd tunnels would induce a drift, but patience and control fixed the issue. When you are smooth with your inputs and the throttle, this is a quick tune and will not do anything unexpected. Good brakes (I set to 4 / 4), great turn in and well built trans/LSD. Nice work :)
    Best lap at Deep Forest Reverse - 1:18.914
