    Probably a little of everything. This car is capable of turning with a max force just over 1G, modern F1 does 4G-4.5G. If that helps.

    I'm happy to have this new content and the G4, as I really enjoyed the Lola from the Sportscar mod for GPL. It's still early to judge handling as I just got it, but on looks it feels the textures could be much sharper and the car modelling could do with more detail. It looks like a high res update on GPL, to be honest.

    I think the Howston cars look great, graphics wise that is. I never liked the ISI Camaro which is supposed to be "next-gen" or something.

    I really like this car.

    As other says it needs some more grip because even after some laps warming up, the car even while not pushing it too much still the back tyres slides in 2nd gear and even at 3rd gear. That trying to control it with the gas and not pushing it.

    I like how you can control it in slides as well and it feels quite natural despite the low grip (ISI loves low grip, you canĀ“t deny it. lol). I always drive/test the cars at low speeds to check the grip doing "moose tests" and going in zig zags at the main straights, you can see if the grip is too low and at the same time how the suspensions works...and in this case suspensions work real good for me. Yet grip needs a little tweak in my opinion.

    Overall, great car and as usually thank you very much ISI. ;)

    I haven't used rf2 for over a month, but I had to install new build today just to try these cars out. Great fun :) Sound is great, and car looks decent, considering it was started long time ago.

    Belgium is more fun for me.. in many corners you have to "lick" the street lamps in apexes of the corners in order to go thru them flat out at 250-300km/h :)

    If ISI are going to continue producing content like this it's going to make the prettier sim's even more boring. Well done guys, keep up the great work.

    The car is pretty enough IMHO... wonderful framerates even with a bunch of them around (compared to the private produced Lola T280 or the ISI Corvette for example).

    The cockpit has some lighting issues during night but wow... run a race a Spa in nighttime and tell me you don't get "Le Mans" movie flashbacks or GTL feeling. The open top version drives a bit like a diva...

    Now would someone please do a 1967 Le Mans track...

    BTW, if you select the 1969 extra-wide rims version... how do you get the AIs to take the same car?

    The car in this video seems to be much more stable and has much more grip:

    These two things go together! That's why racing the older cars is so much fun. It's not coincidence.

    Only 5 minutes of testing so far but excited enough to put up a server at the new Neurburging GP.

    Clutchless upshifts :) Doubles on the downshift :) 3:10 mismatched revs and a 'box full of neutrals'
