    AMG fuel consumptions is weird. Almost impossible to make one hour stint in Monza on one tank at full throttle

    I mentioned the game in my statement. But either way when I’m racing online I see more Amg’s Lambo’s Porsche’s, then the lexus, and the reason why is only a few folks like the lexus and you say you love ❤️ it. Most of the Servers online that i race on, the Amg’s the Lambo’s and the Porche’s are frequently in the top 5 of almost every race..that should tell you something about which cars have the most potential!!

    Yes but the thread is cars pros and cons not which car are in the front..
    It's not because we always have the same cars on multi servers that the others are not competitive ...
    many take porsche audi and aston because as you say they are often taken and often in mind.

    I would never profess to know what folks are thinking when they decide to choose a car. That's something no one can know but the driver himself. I'm just speaking from my experiences. The cars that I mentioned are great cars and so are the others, there's a difference between good cars and preferred cars...

    Monza is a high fuel usage circuit, 70% of the lap is full throttle, massive long straights, very stop start. A 6.0L NA V8 doesn’t sound like an engine that would give particularly good gas mileage... The AMG GT3 has a 120L fuel tank, that’s not a massive amount of gas. Maybe some lift and coast is in order.

    I would drive Lexus, but when inside the car 1/3rd of my left side is blocked by the way their car is built. Every left turn the view is compromised.

    well, as my friend from AKKA said, Mercedes in Monza can make 1h 15min stint on the 1st engine map. So 1 hour race shouldn't be a problem for it, but not in ACC. :(

    ^ It probably can with some lift and coast and taking full advantage of the draft from other cars. The Porsche 911.1 won't make the hour mark if you don't fuel save (aggressive setup) but can comfortably be extended over the hour with lift and coast in the right places. Another skill for you to work on as a driver. Maybe Kunos should come up with a fuel saving challenge for one of the special events next season.

    here's my review for the NSX Evo:

    clearly the car has a better pace than the original one. it's still slower by around 1 second, but the car is now way more competitive. it's a high mid-pack racer (you can easily achieve the top 10 on a 30 car grid). on agressive setup, the car has some big on throttle understeer. the reason: too much camber. it sits at around -4° at the front and -3.6° ar the rear. reducing them to get around -3.5°at the front and -3.0° at the rear reduces significantly the on throttle understeer.
    the NSX Evo is a really stable car and teaches you how to drive a mid engine car. it teaches you to me really smooth. it has a good amount of grip if you treat it gently. you can push it a bit, but not too much or the rear will snap out. it's very forgiving.
    BUT, there's a bad side: the downshift around 3rd gear. it has a slight shift lock from 4th to 3rd which is even more pronounced from 3rd to 2nd gear. make sure that you brake in a straight line otherwise you'll lose the rear

    pros:
    -better pace than the 2018 one. high mid-pack racer
    -nice custom skins
    -very forgiving for a MR car
    -the inside downshift sound <3
    -teaches you on how to be smooth with a MR car

    cons:
    -big on throttle understeer out of the box
    -quite hard to setup and to get rid of some understeer
    -shift lock while downshifting from 4th to 2nd gear
    -still around 1 second off pace
    -need to apply throttle really early to gain some boost at corner exit
    -avoid dropping under 4500-5000 rpm as much as possible. or you'll be out of the turbo boost range

    That would be good. There’s more to sim racing than balls out hotlapping.

    Yeah, there's more to a sim then racing against bots. Nothing beats competing against a live unpredictable person...

    Fuel map 2 offers roughly the same performance (5hp less) at a drastically lower fuel rate. You guys should look into that. ;)

    the Jaguar XK G3 is really fast despite sliding easily. on 2019 trim/BoP it's a very good contestant but barely used.
    on the other hand, the Gallardo R-EX has a very bad default setup. with a good setup, it is 2-3 seconds off pace only. it also slides easily but it's an enjoyable car(apart for Mike Nobel who can lap Brands at 1:24 on that car. aliens :p )

    Its been my most used car and the only car I can get decent times with. Like 35.0 on Misano, 25.0s on Brands or high 48s on Monza. Theyre not great times ofcourse (Im not great or very experienced), but with other cars Im a full second behind on average. I think its the fact I suck at corners / braking , but the Jag saves me because its a straight line rocket.

    Ive been trying to get into the Mcclaren because I want to drive something that doesnt destroy tyres as quick in longer races, but the only tracks Im faster with it compared to the Jag (by about 0.5 seconds) is Spa (2:19.5) and Hungaroring (1:45.1), Im still faster with the Jag everywhere else.

    I tried all the cars but they all seem harder to drive and require driving style adjustments, Jag is simply "turn in, then floor it on exit", not much to it. Other cars require a bit more precision and thought I think.
