    Some interesting numbers here involving just how close they seem to have gotten the BOP.

    I'm not the fastest driver but I am very consistent and have been using Sebring Johnson Club to test/tune.
    After 10 laps each here are my best times with stock tune running soft tires.

    Audi 1:03.625
    BMW 1:03.843
    McLaren 1:03.716
    Porsche 1:03.995

    Some highlights of the cars different personalities...

    The BMW has MONSTER brakes, stock tune is loose and it shows as it moves around quite a bit.
    It is the fastest in a straight line, but loses big time in the corners. It is the drag racer out of the pack, but I'm tempted to tune it just because of those brakes it stops like it's hitting a brick wall.

    The McLaren is very light and nimble, quick and controllable through the corners, specifically corner entry.
    It is light on top speed but it is a joy to drive and gave me so much confidence, it begs to be pushed. This is a consistency car that will be very competitive with the right tune.

    The Porsche was the second best feeling out of the pack for me.
    It's the most powerful on corner exit, it just hooks up and goes job done. In fact it's so quick through the first three gears I was missing apexes on tight switch backs. You have to massage it and use the power wisely. I could easily see this on the podium across many leagues and quick races.

    I've saved the best for last as all my time going forward will focus on the Audi.
    This is the best car simulation I've driven to date with 20 years of sim racing behind me. I just clicked instantly as if I know what the car is going to do before it does. I do a lot of endurance so consistency is what I look for not necessarily top lap times.

    It is the best all-rounder in my opinion, we started at 1:03.625 in stock trim, after one hour of tuning I've turned five 1:01.500 laps in a row.
    My personal goal is to get under a minute, we'll see what happens.
    This car will win endurance races in the right hands.

    So those are some quick thoughts, what's your favorite and why?
    Share some lap times if you like to remind me how much I need to work on my race pace.

    Jumped into the BMW, this was the first thing I saw:


    Longer video in VR, also shows the other cars that have problems:


    I expect these problems from a free mod but not from paid content.
    Posted about about a week ago in the discord, got no reply from the 397 guys, which is pretty disheartening.
    I can live with skins being released later but these cars obviously are rushed.
    There already is a thread about the Porsche and the shift lights and dash so I won't repeat it here but there are also other cars where elements from the LCD are outright missing, for example in the Corvette.
    Can we PLEASE get a comment about these things getting fixed?
    At least fix the wonky steering columns. It's even completely missing in the 720S (the wheel blocks it though so you can't see that your wheel is floating in the air and steering the car by magic), and the one in the BMW is super distracting, especially in VR.

    I don't know man, personally haven't seen inside a real 720S, could just be some ultra high tech advanced magnetic steering wheel to prevent bearing wear........


    :p:D

    Either it's wrong or just a mix of shader + reflection + sun angle not letting it show well in game

    The refuel plug should be on both sides tho I think

    to be fair if theres issues with these cars, I wont blame them but I will ask them to fix them, and not left like other packs dlc and cars. Has s397 really bitten off more than they can chew here.?

    I really hope not.

    But for me right now im not buying this pack just yet.
