    Yes I can believe it. I may not be a coder of any kind but I have built many prototypes in my barn, garage, basement and even at work. The amount of time that goes into research alone is mind boggling because most times I can't remember when I started on the idea. I even wrote two books. Self published the children's book. 'Blast Off' Paul Adams should get you there.

    I laugh when some kid is complaining about some plastic thing costing so much. I ask them to research the right formula of material that is needed for the part usually shuts them up.

    It looks amazing, cannot wait to finish work and go try it !
    Thanks for the hard work !
    Can somebody advise on a mod/car/s to race against the Ferrari and also what would be the suggested tracks (besides Classic Monaco and Classic Spa) ?
    A thread only for Classic Cars and Tracks would be a good idea to save long searches through this forum.

    other historic tracks or layout:
    -Rouen 55-70
    -Oulton Park no chicane
    -Silverstone historic
    -Nordschlaife tourist
    -Castle Combe classic (used by F5000 but classic british club track)

    but yes, we need more historic classic tracks!

    Wow. I thought I had got to grips (pun) with this in AC and back in GPL. Nope. It's evil. I'll have a lie down and get back to it tomorrow. Cheers

    Woo-hoo!

    Default setup is very approachable, unlike the BT20 default setup that wants to kill me. Very similar characteristics to my chosen setup for the BT20. Lighter weight probably lends itself to outbraking the BT20 (despite the extra 5 gallons of fuel I'm carrying in the Ferrari).

    Did my quick testing at Brianza. Been about a year since I've driven Brianza with vintage cars, so started out easy. In back-to-back testing, I'm about a second quicker with the Ferrari than I am with the BT20. Feels like the Firestones have slightly more grip than whatever is on the BT20. Glancing at the setup, it looks like camber changes might reduce lap time for my driving style. Exterior sounds are very good. Onboard sounds are fuzzy. On a tightly packed field, fps are about 10% better than the GT3 pack on my triple screens, but don't improve much as the field spreads out (are there any LODs?).

    If you're paying attention, you'll thus notice I have very few complaints about the Ferrari. ChiefWiggum and Postipate have produced a winner!
