    Hello, everyone.
    I am new here, I would like to ask a basic question about Studio 397’s 911 GT3 CUP.
    What is the designed top speed?
    When I driven it, the top speed was only 260km/h.
    I think it is too slow, what’s the problem?

    What top speed are you expecting?

    A 10 second search gave me 275 for the car, but I'm not familiar with its aero configurations so I don't know what "normal" is.

    Thank you for the reply.
    I don't know the normal, but, I think maybe 300km/h?

    The fastest top speed run I have heard of is 276.8 KPH or 172 MPH and that was done on the space shuttle runway in Jan this year. The thing you need to understand is it's a Cup car not a 1000 HP Koenigsegg it's meant to give balanced performance in and out of corners and on straight with limited tuning options to create close exciting racing.

    I just did this at Motorland Aragon Complex, default setup, banging on the rev limiter. 911_294.jpg

    Sorry, I didn't describe the condition.
    I mean, use the GT3 CUP, on Nurburgring Nordschleife, the longest straight line between Dottinger Hohe to Hohenrain-Schikane.

    I checked the Youtube again, you're right. the top speed is around 275km/h.

    Motorland is a bit special and it is specially designed to get the maximum speeds due to the big unevenness in the back straight.

    I think that Le Mans (i.e.) would be better to get the top speed of the car

    With that default setup the engine was hitting max revs for about 100m.
    I just did a full speed setup. Low fuel, radiator tape and brake ducts blocked, minimum wing, no toe in, etc.....
    I got 1 km/h more and it was max revs for about 300m. :D
