    Setup ride height and rake will vary in different conditions on track. The downforce itself will impact on that. Diffuser downforce is also known to be largely free of drag - it's not a wing.

    Yes, it "might" be a good idea to lower rearwing, to compensate the loss of rear-end downforce you lower rear rideheight. So you end up with the same downforce/balance, but higher top speed.
    The problem is that this strategy makes the car more pitch sensitive. for example, while costing or braking you lose more downforce on the rear than "high rideheight / high wing" config. So you have to decide, depending on track, driving style and car. Some cars are more sensitive to RH changes than others, cars with long wheelbase (M6 GT3) are tendentially less pitch sensitive than such with short one (old Z4 GTR). :)

    The 488 is well known for good aero/lots of downforce.

    Diffuser are not free ob drag. Here is an interesting statistics:

    Not free of drag yes, but more efficient than rearwing.

    I said "largely free of drag". Yes, it does produce some drag, though that will vary as well (not always proportional to the downforce being produced). rF2 I think doesn't allow for this, the diffuser drag would be included in the body drag (someone correct me if I'm wrong there) so would be an average.

    How much would you expect the diffuser drag to increase in your scenarios, as an isolated percentage and in terms of the car total?

    Oh boys, I was not talking about diffuser drag primary ... yet it is clear more downforce, more drag, more tyre work ...

    I recently purchased this car and so far i'm loving it especially driving wise.Aero behaviour feels more sophisticated;
    one example would be i get quite big understeer when following other cars closey which is very realistic as i have heard many times from IRL driver david perel (although he drives gt3 but im guessing that 488 gte and gt3 are very close )
    My suggestions would be for sounds
    external sound ->>
    • Needs turbo flutter

    •the transmission whine can be heard from outside especially in lower speeds

    •some lound pops on upshifts

    •Also one when hearing the car via TV cams when the cars goes into distant the turbo whistle is way too prominent which is not correct when this cars goes farther away the Flat plane V8 rumble are more prominent

    Heres is a video that captures the sound very beautifully->>


    Internal sound also needs some improvement i don't know how to
    put it in appropriate words but it does not sound like flat plane ferrari V8.
    Despite turbo IRL ferrari V8 has quite distinct sound.... in simple terms it sounds like a 458 but less scream and slightly muted. While in-game car sound more like 4 cylinder and "digital "(yes not very accurate description but please do look into better internal sound)
    On the other hand the porsche rsr sound very good, sounds more natural.

    On physics side->>

    One thing i'm yet experience is bottoming out in gte cars i own (911 RSR and 488 GTE ) going full low ride height is always possible without any setup compromises and threat of chocking the downforce/air.

    Oh no, my motec post above was intended for 488 gt3 not gte... so similiar, Im sry

    Late edit: found time to test the GTE: pretty similiar. No wonder, GT3 was just a copy of GTE with small adjustments probably. A shame we got billed twice ;)

    Any plans to optimize to improve FPS?

    The low FPS and stutter with this car make it unplayable on Nordschleife.
    The Callaway gets 70-80 fps, this piece of crap 18 FPS. Whatever.

    The Ferrari does indeed consume more system resources due to the complete interior PBR shading. It is the first car to get the full treatment. While I saw a drop of around 7 to 10 fps, the large drop you are experiencing may be due to a limited amount of video ram.
    (note the word 'may'.) In any event, it can be compensated for by reducing car detail in your video settings. Let us know what your system components are, that (again) may point to the choke point.

    Mine isn't THAT bad, but it is about half of the fps I get with the other GT3 cars on Nords, other tracks it is MUCH better.

    Anybody else finding the Ferrari AI way off the pace compared to other S397 GTE's? 1.5-3 secs off per lap. At Silverstone, Spa, Nurburgring.

    I have to ask, are you sure you are using the GTE spec Ferrari's or perhaps comparing the pace of the GT3 car vs GTE.(which, in itself is a problem.)

    I can confirm that ferrari gte A.I is slower at sliverstone against rsr. i don't own other gte cars so don't know for complete results.
