    after a bit of baseline setup testing today, it appears the cars are really well balanced, in terms of performance. I was able to run almost exactly the same time in both the Ferrari and Lotus around this track. the main difference is that the Ferrari just requires to work harder for it. whereas with the Lotus I was able to jump in and almost bang out the target time, it took me a few extra laps and massaging the car to get the last few tenths out. I think I'm going with the Ferrari, though. that soundtrack is unbeatable

    Of course you go with Ferrari, Joseph, no way you´re taking the Lotus....

    I was also on the server at the same time that Joseph and Mihaly were. I was a second faster with the Lotus compared with my personal time in the Ferrari.
    Not a big difference, but not a small one either.

    I havent tried the Lotus. The Ferrari is super fun. And this version of Fuji is great with some spots that can flat out bite you.

    BTW what is a good base time?

    I was able to manage 1:43.9xx's in both the Lotus and Ferrari on the default setup.

    That's a hell of a time with default setups. I had something around 1:45.xxx with the Ferrari, I could probably shave off 1 more second with lots of practice. For some reason I was a bit slower in the Lotus, the Ferrari felt awesome to me.

    I just realized that this race is on Friday evening, which is a no-go for me

    Wow, how did I see the 6th, must have been upside down

    Mondays are better, but will probably only make the race, not the quali...

    I find the Lotus to be much more stable out of the box, so I think if you're up in the air and have had some podiums before, maybe you should join me in the gentleman's agreement to drive a Ferrari. I think it will take a great setup to calm the car and equal the Lotus. It's a fun-run though, so no real worries, we should all enjoy ourselves and the experience!

    My memory of GPL is that the Ferrari had a raw, untamed sound far beyond the rest of the cars. It was great fun to drive but seemed out of sync with the others because of it. This one has the same tone but is subtler in attack, I really like it.

    BTW, damage is set at 70%, and we are encouraged to rejoin after a wreck. This is a fun-run on a particularly lethal car/track combination, so no worries about rejoining, we are glad to have you stick around.

    Anyone willing to use the Lotus anyways?
    Because looks like everybody is commiting to the Ferrari, and one of the plans for this race is to compare?
