    Im still not 100% happy with the tune. Will try and make it as good as it can be before I publish

    Indeed. Couldn't have put it better myself. A car which will definitely put a smile on your face.

    Here is the current list of cars which have achieved gold in the Ferrari Seasonal.

    Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta passo corto CN.2521 '61 (450PP SH) - No added parts, a win at 450PP.. :)
    Ferrari 430 '06 (550PP SM)
    Ferrari 430 Scuderia '07 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari 430 Scuderia '07 (600PP SS - Detuned to 550PP)
    Ferrari 458 Italia '09 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari 458 Italia '09 (600PP SS - Detuned to 550PP)
    Ferrari 512BB '76 (550PP SH)
    Ferrari 599 '06 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari California '08 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari Enzo '02 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari Enzo '02 (600PP SS - Detuned to 550PP)
    Ferrari GTO ‘84 (550PP SS)
    Ferrari SP1 '08 (550PP SS)

    Its not a bad list at all! Some surprises in there, Especially the Enzo '02 at 550PP (none detuned version). 2.10.8xx was my fastest time in that one. I feel this list is missing two important cars though. The Ferrari SP1 '08 and the F40. I will have to give these two a retune and see what I can do with them. This Ferrari seasonal is a really good credit maker, I am back up to 5 million credits now after my time with the VW Golf yesterday and experimenting with the Ferraris.

    A very smooth drive when you drive this sensibly. If you push it too far, it will let you know well before you reach a point that the car will spin on you. 2.09.8xx was my fastest time with this tune on the Ferrari Seasonal.

    Im glad that you like the new version. I tried to make it as loose as it would go before oversteer became an issue. I think the balance works out just about right for Ascari circuit. I just hope that it works well on other tracks in future seasonals. The SP1 '08 tune is also very good, feels counter intuitive at times but is idiot proof around ascari. I found it nearly impossible to spin. I ran into a wall head on on lap 4 but I still came back and won by 4 seconds. If only that SP1 looked better though.. Really Ferrari, what was you thinking...

    Very nice tune on this. At first it looked like the lsd was set pretty low, but when I tried it, I was impressed with how hard I could shove around corners. HUGE grip on this car. Well done sir, well done.

    Thank you, The Fezza can be temperamental with LSD at times, this car seemed to like these settings so I didn't fight it. The car talks to you a lot with this setup, I think that is what makes this tune driver friendly.

    Now if only I could get the Dino to win at 500pp....it's proving to be a challenge on the straights against the Enzo. I can't get the power band right on the tranny :ouch:

    I will try and get the Dino tuned up as high as it will go. I found this one tricky to keep balanced above 450PP but I'm sure with some time, it will work itself out.

    :tup: Manage to squeeze a few minutes today to test it... Really like it! When you said it was a bit more loose, well honestly I was a bit :odd:, but I had to swallow my words :lol:... It is sharper on approaching corners and the rear continues planted.

    That little rotation that the car now has makes it perfect for Ascari, along with a responsive gearbox... BTW, great job on the gearbox, very close ratios and suits the car perfectly...

    I believe it will work fine on future seasonal, maybe only a Final Gear ratio needs to be adjusted... :)

    Gonna try to squeeze a few more minutes to test it... :tup: I honestly do not like the SP1 that much, it may be a nice car, but it looks awfull... :lol:

    Have a few more reviews (tested) to post from 400PP cars, will do it asap... Darn, sorry for the long text...

    I would hate to post a bad Ferrari in my garage. It would make the F360 in my profile picture disappear if I did that I think.. Thank you for what you said about the gear box. I learnt my lesson on not properly finishing a gearbox settings during a FITT competition. I haven't done it since, thats for sure. I must really finish tuning up my FITT cars but I am having a little bit too much fun on getting new cars tune up to earn myself credits. Just preparing a Lotus Elise '00 as I type. It should be a nippy little 400PP beast when I'm done with it.

    Hi Chris,

    Well I'm betting your glad that's over. At least you can dull the pain a little with some amber fluid & don't have to eat hospital food :cheers:
    Wishing you a speedy recovery :) :tup:

    Firstly, welcome home. Hope your feeling revitalised and better. Well done on getting most of the seasonals completed already. 4 attempts is very good for this event. It took me a lot longer than that.

    Very good win with the Ka '01, PD really did make this a beginner event if a 350PP CM car can win this. I have a few more 350/400PP CS cars in the works. Not sure if they will be ready for this seasonal but I will try and get a few more done.

    Welcome home!

    That's good news.. Now it's just a matter of a speedy recovery for you. I'm sure you'll be up and running in no time at all. I imagine it feels good to be back home instead of being at a hospital.

    Cheers bud!

    Great news about the BMW M4. Looks like it will now become tuneable in the next update that PD give us. I am looking forward to getting my thumbs on that one. :) I have two of the beauties sitting around waiting for some special treatment.

    Excellent. Your using @Pete05 version. :) Pete will be most impressed! That thing was on rails when it was tested on Mount Panaroma. It didnt like going off any driving line but it was amazingly fast when it was on the correct lines.

    Your finding a large selection of cars here. Will update the list ASAP. I am just banging my head against a metaphorical brick wall with a TVR Tuscan Speed 6 for a FITT entry. ABS 1 only kills my driving skill. I struggle big time to get it dialled in tuning with virtually no aids.

    Which one is Pete's, Shaun? The Demio or the RX-8?

    I assume that you are fighting with ABS 0 and not ABS 1?! ;)
