    Reminds me of my last car, 2016 focus ST. That thing needed a 4 lane road to bust a u-turn. Well, unless you wanted to hand brake slide it at high speed lol.

    Regards.

    @Paul Jeffrey

    HI, the cars are amazing in every aspect, but I noticed a detail on the Toyota that bothers me, it's not a new thing, it's been happening a lot lately...

    Why we don't have a decent inside the car onboard camera like in real life? Instead we received a useless cam pointing directly to the body of the driver that doesn't show the track.

    This type of cam is important considering a broadcast situation, the audience can relate the driver's input within the track and can be a beautiful showcase of the quality content you guys delivered on the official studio397 events too.

    Can you change from right seat to left seat in toyota's tuning menu? Or are you stuck with it?

    I mean in game. The Q50 is left seated while the corolla is the opposite

    It just feels awkward (for the majority of virtual racers) to drive a right seated car and have your gearshifter on your right.

    Must be tough for those people who haven't had the majority of games put them on the 'wrong' side of the car :p

    Just a little oddity I found. I chose the Toyota and picked a car near the center of the list that appeared red. I then went to the customize screen and it appeard BRIGHT RED under those hi-tech light stands. Then on track, granted it was Donnington in wet wet England, the car looked brown. I thought I was driving a United Express scooter car. (think of the Chocolate M&M) Then I exited and there was the red car again on the UI menu.

    Maybe something's wrong but some paints are like that. My wife's car is dark red under direct sunlight and goes to brown at cloudy days and dark brown almost black at night.

    Has anybody else noticed that the AI are relatively slow? I tried the Toyota on the Brands Hatch Indy layout and with the AI set to 120% difficulty, 75% aggression and 20% limiter, I qualified 1st easily. I deliberately got my self disqualified from the qualifying so I could start at the back. In 16 laps I was near the front of the pack, maybe I am just really good, but I doubt that. At Donington GP the AI are not quite so slow but still above what I would expect. I also tried Silverstone National with similar results.
    Looking at the real world lap times, maybe the AI are fine but the human controlled car is too fast. My best lap times are close to the real life times when I should be slower, not being a pro.

    A few observations about the BTCC cars,

    The Infiniti you can't see the revs lights on the dash as they are hidden behind the steering wheel, unless you lower the seat, but then you can't see out of the windscreen.

    The swingman camera on the Toyota zooms in too close resulting in the body work clipping exposing its inners (some other S397 cars also affected). The same camera also zooms out way too far compared to the Infiniti and most other S397 cars. Obviously not a disaster, but shows a lack of continuity amongst the design team.

    The Infiniti has the option of a visor mod, but it didn't appear to do anything when I tried it.

    None of the official liveried cars have their corresponding real driver names. Maybe that will only happen when all the cars are released?

    Also should I be able to refuel during a race? I didn't think they did that in the BTCC.

    Apart from those small issues I am enjoying the BTCC content so far and I can't wait for some more cars to add to the variety a bit.

    I'm enjoying these BTCC cars way more than I expected. They are very well done. Can't wait for the Ford Focus and the Honda Civic. Thank you Studio-397!

    Yes these BTCC cars are excellent, I'm really looking forward to the whole grid now

    And, it will never happen, but it would be awesome if we had some other crazy DTM car to go along with that beauty of a BMW Class 1 (and I know that's the only one of its kind, but how cool would it be if there were an Audi and Mercedes to go with it :)
