On mine too thought it was much slower but my thoughts were just the 100% aero sent you race 2 as requested too matey.

Not always. As I found in previous series gearing could be tweaked to restrict speed or with 1 car give it a much better launch. Still requires a lot of playing with to get right though....

Sorry was reading on phone but im home now!!
Yeah what i meant was in S1 i think where i built them up and fixed the build for SF, i would gear them (at least on speed) to be very similar across the line at say sunset or where the 07 Civic had a useless launch, i raised ratio on 1st gear loads to lessen wheel spin that sort of thing. The difficulty was getting cars just so without the girls crying as usual

Even with loads of testing people either sandbag or always end up heading to one car that they fancy has a decent chance. There was a Mazda (IIRC) that could easily have had a damn good pop at podiums but nobody chose it!!
Civic was easily the best al rounder and you should have heard the cries with a 5 PI drop - you'd think i was the grim reaper arrived too early!!

FFS Guru even got the Astra running quite well

At least now that there's been some testing of them through this series, it could be that you could look to reduce the PI/other parameter on those cars pre-season which should mean the cars are more balanced across the board.

The strong cars and the mix of power traction acceleration and poor brakes made the comp interesting. I had the 370z but didnt feel it an advantage due to RWD on some tracks being an issue meaning I turned TCS on which I dont do. and the Vw's being much faster.

A mix of cars a must for next series

I think the slower guys should be pushed into faster cars to bring them into the pack, and the fast guys like you spinny can pick a quick or your normal rubbish car. ( you are mad bloomin electric vehicle racing .......)

I agree with the mentions of cosmetic damage for future seasons.
Also if it was 1 drivetrain then the rolling start could be dropped.

The rolling starts really killed it for me, because they were never done properly, in lobby 2 anyway. If it was just f & rwd drive there would be no need and we can have a proper standing start

I think rolling starts are very lame ... Who cares if AWD/RWD are better off the line - that's a little bonus for them. Part of selecting a car

Cosmetic damage could cause silly overtakes - damage is a nice variable

In btcc there's no rolling starts and the BMWs get amazing starts, but I understand why they was done here
