    Absolutely agree, it's fabulously fast and (on the trofeos) it will not understeer. At all.
    In fact, I don't think any road(ish) car in the game grips like this. In braking especially, you can feel the tyres "clawing the the tarmac," which is a bit of a cliche, but very apt here.
    Just out of interest, I did several laps in the Pagani from WHC127, also using the Trofeos. It doesn't generate anything like the grip, I'm about 3 secs a lap faster in the Lambo Sixth Heaven or IMO, the Settantanove ele-mental.
    The reason why it feels so good? Colin C. was right, it might be something to do with only weighing 999kg.

    Stig was presented as a "purist" and as often mentioned in the series, he always drove with all driver aids (save ABS) OFF.
    I notice they didn't mention it here, but watching the vid, I suspect TCS was off - look at the outside left tyre spinning up through the fast left-hander towards the end of the lap.

    Very well said.
    I met him and we had a two minute chat at Spa in 2009. Being someone that had just bounced up to him, (probably/actually, like a bit of a twit,) he was very gracious and kind but one got the sense that he really didn't suffer fools.
    Today has felt very flat, we've lost a huge character and someone (the last?) who spoke his mind and just told the truth.
    Niki Lauda - What a racer, what a man, what a complete hero. Our deepest respect. R.I.P.

    Just a quick point regarding the "Hollywood" version of the story - it is of course not true, it completely misrepresents the real story!
    Here is an excerpt from the excellent writer Andrew Benson's obituary, with the link to the full article below. Well worth a read.
    "Their battle has been turned into a Hollywood film, but it misrepresented them as enemies - in fact, Lauda and Hunt were close friends. So much so they had next-door rooms that weekend in Japan and, on race morning, with Hunt in bed with a girlfriend, Lauda goose-stepped into the room and barked out: "Today, I vin the Vorld Championship." "

    I was behind my ghost most of the lap, 5/10ths gained from turn 10 the the finish, the slower hairpin corners section.

    What is everyone strategy for turn one? The line I tried above didn't work!
    I've tried lift-off, turn-in, pause, nail it. I've tried turning in, touch of late trail brake, then nail it and I've tried a touch of early brakes, line up and nail it. All are very hairy!
    Thanks for the excellent vid Pretend racer - it shows some sort of un-matchable juggling with throttle and brake:D, a variation on the second option above, possibly.

    34s and unthinkable 33s will require a very strong brave pill and a leap of faith.:)

    I just had my first minute to read the thread and much to say. You are the first persons that I "see" today that understand what I felt this morning about Nicki Lauda. Great story Totall Wrytoff and kind of jalous.. great time too. I knew Sunday night that turn 1 will be key.. It looks like my week will be as today but I'll try some. Crazy times.

    I just abused the ABS entering the corners.

    First laps....a few days late and quite a few dollars short by the looks of it! I shall be a bit faster once I stop trying to downshift in the middle of the tight lefties!

    Well I was totally prepared to hate this car, but I have just done two laps and I don't hate it yet, probably because I didn't yet push it. Normally end up hating Lambo's, not usually compatible with my style ;)

    Changed to Trofeo, turned off TC, all default so far.

    Did a 38 first lap and then a high 36 second lap and promptly went off T1 at start of third lap :)

    No point in posting that time yet, hang on I'll just have another go...

    OK, still same setup, outlap and two flying laps;

    1.36.085 Leif PC


    Now to even out the PSI and lower the fuel...

    ahh, now we are getting somewhere, the universe returns to balance: I have begun to dislike the car, it is very Lamborghiniesque, perfect!

    That will do for now then no point pushing it, will only get worse :p
    7 laps total, plus 1 aborted lap due to overshooting corner whilst daydreaming :)

    2nd go and found 1.3 seconds playing with alignment and just starting to learn to throw it around a weeeeee bit. I tend to be conservative so always braking a bit too soon, slowing down a bit too much for corners....@LeiF....maybe I should use my rig cupholder for some hotlap elixir perhaps??? :rolleyes:

    Hard to believe I went almost a month without playing Assetto. Smoothness is the name of the game with braking and turn-in here!

    Good progress with 1.5 sec improvement. As a charter member of the slow learners' society, this is quite motivating even though I remain miles away from the fast guys. Progress is attributed to 1/3rd setup (mid -ve camber front and back now), 2/3rd learning to drive this spaceship. You do have to be quite aggressive in a refined way. Learning how to handle the left/right combo after the hairpin is critical to success because no matter how well you do before that, you can lose it all right there...some fancy dancing with the brake/throttle work to keep the rear end where it is supposed to be. I love that first turn off the main straight...reminds me of Silverstone GP.
