When I first bought that car and looked at the interior my mouth dropped to the floor. It looks outstanding and the limited visibility is a challenge. But that snap oversteer bug you talked about is the reason why I don't drive it. Even though I wish I could. I've tried and tried and I cannot tune it out.Fell in love with GT by Citroen road car and Race car in GT6. The superior car models in GT6 tends to bring them out, I didn't and still do not think much of the road car in GT5 though the race car tends to keep its wickedness. I love the road car and its peculiar design if I ever laid eyes on that thing in the streets my mouth would drop, it would be such a camera shot target, it looks outrageous but believable and that’s the seller for me. The sound update was much needed it used to sound like the m5 V10. Now though it truly sounds like a V8 is sitting behind you. I keep it so stock it's not funny; power, weight, sport hard tires, suspension I even entertain myself from time to time with comfort softs once in a while...yep love the way it is. Only bad point for me is the visibility in cockpit view but even then I’m just splitting hairs really I only race in cockpit view.
I love the race car more strangely enough but how? It sounds terrible, the visibility in cockpit view is even worse thanks to the windscreen banner and LED display that comes out of the drivers dash and what’s more, it suffers from the GT6 Physic engine bug usually found on Mid-engine raced cars. That snap over steer when coming off the throttle in low speed corners. It's awful! If you only could see the suspension set up for the Citroen GT race car you are given to race in the S-2 mission race. Go on try them for yourself if you have not already, buy the race car test it on a tight track, then use the one on the super S-2 test. Chalk and cheese me thinks.
Either way I’ve made some of my own adjustments and lessened the effect, it’s not gone (I’m not all that at tuning) but allows a greater margin for error before it happens plus, I’ve adapted and know to always part throttle on mid and slow speed corners with this car anyway. It tests you yes and It’s a challenge to pilot, but gives you a rewarding feeling when you get it right consistently.
I’m a big fan of the GT1 and GT2/GTLM class whether it’s from the BPR homologations era or the FIA GT homologations era. I feel that the GT by Citroen race car is a race car of the future in that it represents what design elements and features would be present on a modern day GT1 car if the class had survived up till this point in time. That steering wheel-as the in game bio on the race car states- truly does make you feel like you are in a jet fighter, that stability fin adopted from current LMP cars and the green LED display on the dash looks like top grade tech. love it! Last time I checked 600 M on the clock in the road car, nothing out of the ordinary but the race car was over 1800M.
Yeah overtime I've come to except it probably is not curable but tameable at least. Though I would not be surprised if some of the gifted tuners on GTP managed to find a sweet spot in the tuning.When I first bought that car and looked at the interior my mouth dropped to the floor.

Just last night I discovered the best car in the game. SLS AMG Mercedes. Without doubt.
I've built up a fortune of 14m and have no more interest in the races, so I went on a shopping spree and bought loads of good performing premium cars. The SLS was one of them.
I added front and rear aero with rear downforce set to maximum, plus sports soft tires (unless it already has them? can't remember). Took to the Nurburgring with all aids off except ABS set to 1, set brake balance to 3/6. I gotta tell you I don't recall ever enjoying driving as much as that. I ended up doing 10 laps before even realising. An absolute joy to drive, handles like a dream, very fast, very agile...
I'm genuinely in love with that car.
