    I think it is worth taking these two cars to the Top Gear Test Track mod track and setting a time off the line with Stigs second cousin from where ever you live?

    P1 is faster. better brakes, more downforce and more grip overall. just a bit less power.

    Cornering reliability : P1 >>> La Ferrari
    Design : La Ferrari >>>>>> P1
    Sound : La Ferrari >> P1
    My choice : Alfa GTA ;)

    I didn't really get time to get to know the P1, I did maybe two laps and moved onto the next car. It's better than I was expecting but I can't make a decision yet. I really grew to like the LaF.

    I have completed around 20 laps around the Nordschleife with both the LaFerrari and the P1. I managed to get a 6:29:255 with the LaFerrari and a 6:29:266 with the P1. Difference of 0,011 seconds.

    I used ABS and TC for both cars, Trofeo tires and some more camber both front and rear for the LaFerrari, no setup changes for the P1. Fuel consumption and damage both were disabled, optimum grip and 26°C. Obviously I have way more virtual experience with the LaFerrari.

    I did not manage to get a clean lap for the P1 though. So these results are pending. While I am sure that I did the best I could with the LaFerrari I still see another second for the P1.

    The P1 is far more accesible and stable compared to the Ferrari imho, which feels like a boat compared to the P1 in high-speed sections.

    Still, I'd take the Ferrari. :p

    Edit: Just took both cars for a spin on Mugello. I manaed to get a 1:48:313 with the P1 and a... 1:49:857 with the LaFerrari. Yep, wasted. :D

    La What?:oops:
  8. I haven't driven any of the Dream Pack cars yet, and I have only recently performed a quick test in the LaFerrari at Vallelunga Club. What I can say is that the Ferrari felt very enjoyable to drive on that short track (with both sets of tyres). It also helped that the engine sounds awesome!

  10. Guys, can you please stop using Trofeo tyres, these are slicks, LOL

    Compare the two on road tyres, "slow" grip preset when on Nords :D

    Are you saying that Ferrari or McLaren put street tires when doing hotlaps on Nords?

    BTW Ferrari handles like a cow on the ice with road tires while P1 handles quite well.
  12. Yes.

    They have whatever tyres they would use on the street, which in this case is a very high performance street tyre. If they do their time on slicks, like what Pagani did with the Huyara on Top Gear, they're gonna get **** on.

    Just to clear up the tyres situations as we understand it is confusing to some... What follows is only for the hardcore simracers :D

    When TopGear tested the Pagani Hauyra, the laptime was nothing sort of incredible... the fans noted that the car had some "strange" tyres fitted for the fastlap and in the end both TG and Pagani admitted that the car was fitted with some "special tyres". Those tyres were actually slick tyres, hand cut with some rudimental tread.

    We simulated those tyres in the huayra and so we are using them (in the correct dimensions) in the other hypercars too. They are trully slick tyres, even way too grippy and probably they last too much... We called them trofeo because... too long story... but they are proper slicks

    The actual cars though do use the street tyres and if you want absolute realism and laptimes, then I would recommend street tyres and green track conditions with cold weather.

    Have fun and don't stay safe, it's virtual so you don't have to pay if you destroy one single prototype that costs a million :D

    I consider that a challenge to now go and crash a few hundred LaFerraris and P1 on the Nordschleife again. Now with "proper" road-legal tires. :D

    Those Trofeo roadtyres are modeled after semislicks, right?

    Sweet Jeebus the P1 is ultra fast on trofeos... 6:25 BTG time in traffic... wut. I can barely hit 6:30 in GT cars with no traffic. xD

    Thx for clearing that up @Aristotelis
    And now you wonder why McLaren and Ferrari are not revealing their Ring laptimes times...
    You can go and try your self, getting below 7min is a real challenge, big power won't do ***t if you don't have the grip, that's why 918 excels on the Ring, because it can better put that massive power down, thx to awd.

    No, I just said above your post that they are actual slicks.

    They hypercars street tyres are similar to semislicks performance.

    In real life McLaren offers P1 with optional Trofeo R which are road legal but can't be driven in rain, the standard P1 tires are Pzero Corsas.

    So in AC is the P1 standard road tire the Trofeo R or Pzero Corsa?

    As seen in this video.
  20. Aristotelis

    Aristotelis Will it drift? Staff Member KS Dev Team

    It's closer to the Pzero Corsa.
    The Trofeo R tires should be a bit faster than the Pzero Corsa but not that fast as the slicks simulated ingame...
    uff you guys are going to force me to simulate 3 different compounds :p get off me! I have things to do! :p :p :D
