You are correct Pete.  I'll fix that.  Looks like the online resource I used for vehicle weight (at the time of posting) has incorrect data.  Also, a bit coincidental that both Lambos weigh the same.


A comment on the F40 tune I posted:  It's really just a good starting point.  It handles better than stock with that tune, but further adjustments are needed to increase stability, especially in low speed turns.  I opened up the LSD under decel (from 33 to 10) and softened up the rear suspension a bit to add grip.

To sum up the cars (and this is somewhat obvious from the PP ratings):

The 288 GTO is clearly faster than the Countach.  And the Diablo is clearly faster than the F40.  Thus strategy will be required to determine when to use each car to your advantage when you think you can place the highest.  This should make things very interesting, and is all part of the plan here.

Sorry you can't make race #1, but what does "head out" mean? (in this context)

NOTICE!!!

TIRE and FUEL usage will be set to FAST, not VERY FAST.



It was just way too quick with these high powered vehicles.

Race 1 results!

Monza 80s
1 - badaboya1 - Diablo GT
2 - Wolfpack987 - F40
3 - DudeTuna - F40
4 - TunaPhreak - Diablo GT

Turnout for race #1 could have been greater, but a few timing conflicts arose at the last moment.  Hopefully going forward we can field a larger crew.  The Diablo was certainly the car to beat a Monza, with the F40s standing little chance.  With superior tire wear and fuel efficiency on their side it may have been possible for an F40 to challenge for the lead, given a flawless driving performance.  But alas, the term "taming the beast" is certainly appropriate for driving cars of this ilk and it was not to be.

Congratulations to badaboya for the win, as well as for taking pole position.  Silverstone GP is next! :)

"head out" in this instance meant a trip to Bandung for bacon, wine and HolyShitFuck, I found some real cheese.
