    Look, if you guys want to stick to the S3 rule, you're making this a California vs F430 event. I've been doing it with the F40 in R1s and I assure you that it's not easy to keep up with those cars. Besides, if you use a 512 BB, with S3 tyres you'll even get a max PP lower than 650 (even with max power and min weight). So, at least, leave classic Ferraris out of that rule. My two cents.

    Okay, i've done two races on s3, but it is obvious not everyone is checking the forum to see if any restrictions were imposed.

    I'm sorry Patrick, but i am switching back to r1 since the with s3 in the esses we are sitting ducks waiting to get bumped.
    Also, the braking points seem a bit hard for some people to understand...

    This is what was happening to me and I was in a stock California, R tyres puts me off this race. Though I do sympithise with F40, 512BB drivers though.

    I wanted to suggest that too (but my excuse of being bumped in the esses then did not make sense ;))

    Just came to home. Not even test specIII yet... but that two events sound very good, cause there is going to be lot of racers in this event. I would love to test both combinations against good racers with same.

    (Would be interesting to see also, who are going to drive with what?)

    Bravo.....beers for that man. :cheers:

    I'm still crap on r1's though.

    Think it's a bit early to be setting restrictions, everyone is still getting used to it.

    Question.
    Who puts racing compound tires on street cars, even on track days? No one.

    Why is banning "illegal" tires stupid?

    Thanks Patrik, but at the end indeed I was gone in your mirror :lol:


    The F40 is great fun, but - sadly - I don't think it can win races, at least not in the GTP schedule.

    EDIT: I'm off for the weekend, hope you guys have fun! :tup:

    We should be allowed to run any R or S series tire. If you're slower with say an S3 and complaining about it, then swap for the R1 and you'll likely find more speed. Problem solved. I don't see the point in restricting tires when everyone already has the option to choose whatever tire that will make them fastest :boggled:

    I think the F430 is faster on the straights. It as more power, but weights more I think the F430 and California are closely matched. Harder to get a jump out of the corners but once you get going I definitely think the F430 has the higher top speed.

    ^^^Probably my stupidest comment yet. I was guessing without looking at any numbers, stupid. I agree the Cali is faster on the straights.

    I know that. :dopey: I was just stating my opinion on the matter. Hopefully the ruling retains until PD changes the events.
