As I go through remaking my setups for the wheel I have not been writing my impression of the cars over. I told hal2000 once that the difference between the Dual Shock and the wheel is like being the passenger and the driver. There is simply no substitute for having a wheel. With this car I felt that I had to remake the write up since the difference in handling is so great.

The biggest surprise about this car was the understeer. I was simply unprepared to have this much understeer in an MR drivetrain. Once I did manage to tune out most all of the understeer I was left with a car that was so unstable it wanted to spin around every bend. If you want to get an ability from a car you must surrender another. In this case I traded some performance to gain stability. When it's all said and done and the smoke from the tires has cleared you are left with a car that is zippy, agile, but still unstable in the corners under full acceleration.

The good: Speed and agility make this European car a true contender, even in the Pro League. The bad: Tuning out the understeer increases the instability, and this instability under a stage three turbo is pretty bad.

Tire Choices

On a Tire Wear race, I always use T5s, and T4s on the front if wear is an issue. Pit stops are almost always at the end of Lap 5. The NSX type R I drove at the Seattle track, I actually pitted after lap 7.

As a matter of fact the problem of tire wear on this car has led me to a revelation that I am sure most others have already had. That said; if you use T2 or T3 combo's on cars you will get the endurance but lose time to lower performance. If you keep the tires that perform best at around 5+ laps you will loose endurance but more than make up for it in performance. I had never realized this because I had never tuned a car, so the only way I could win the upper level races was to get more life on my tires.
