The Bentley Continental GT3 in real life has better braking and aerodynamics, I'm not stating the car in the game is bad, it's a great car. Under braking is where this magnificent car suffers the most in the game. The car is the the number 2 quickest car in GT3 2015 season and the portrayal of the car in the game doesn't match it's real life counter part no matter if stats were entered from the manufacturer. The Mclaren GT3 is twelve pounds lighter, 'twelve' and it's aerodynamics isn't as the game makes it out to be. The Aston Martin isn't as fast as the Bentley in real life either in the 2015 season. Project Cars maybe has intentionally locked the longitudinal weight bias, and Final Drive to constrict it's performance? Please consider fix.

The Gear Ratios are like the Homologation for FIA. -> Like Real Life

Aero Data came directly from Bentley AFAIK...

Try to fiddle with the Setup :)

For me it's allready some of the faster GT3 Cars...

With only few tweaks to the default setup, the Bentley is one of the quickest GT3 cars.

Guys, in general try not to be so absolute about everything.

Reading things like 'it's truly a shame' and going on to list handling traits that we designed in because they are 'real world' and titles stating, 'Needs a performance patch' when it doesn't gets on my tits a bit.

"Maybe even ask a question... 'Does the ... need a performance patch?'.

I've found the Continental quite competitive in the GT3 field myself. Especially on circuits like Monza. Managed to win a race there in it with AI set to either 80 or 90 (using a pad) and my team-mate was right up there too. It does struggle a bit on the twistier tracks but I'd probably only pick the McLaren over it in performance terms.

In my own testing, the Bentley is clearly the fastest GT3 in the game right now. For me, their relative performance is as follows:

Tier 1: Bentley Continental
Tier 2: Aston Martin V12 Vantage, BMW Z4, McLaren 12C, Ruf RGT8
Tier 3: Audi R8, Mercedes SLS
Tier 4: BMW M3, Ginetta G55

Though if it comes up in career I wouldn't pick the Bentley anyway because I think it handles like ass.

theres also the issue that youre talking about the 2015 car but technically i think pcars bentley is 2013 (maybe 2014). so whether or not they adjusted the performance based on this year is another matter.

Performance patch? Why? So you can slam everyone off the track with even more ferocity?

Yes you do need to crank on a bit of rear down force to help stabilize the rear. Or at least that's what I found while testing it at Zolder (going over the first hill, the rear was uber light) when the car was released. I haven't driven it anywhere else as yet.

I don't know about that extra click on the rear wing. To me is just extra drag :D Seriously, I love how it gives my right foot some work

I think you guys need more front bias on the brakes which is pretty much what I adjust except for tyre pressures.

graveltrap
19-06-2015, 16:10
Someone did put to much fuel in the Bentley ;) Stock settings show a full tank 90 litres, all the others come with 60 / 61.

Cherry picking leaderboard figures isn't a great way of proving performance yet, they aren't very aren't very well populated, at Imola the Bentley is currently 1.5 seconds slower than the Aston...

You would be surprised, I know Blackvault did a test in this at both maximum and minimum rear wing and found no top speed difference at all!

Your are indeed correct Pamellaaa. I took the Bentley up the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans, from Terte Rouge to the first chicane and I didn't notice any different in top speed with 0 and 10 levels of rear down force.

19-06-2015, 16:43
Then again.... the Z4 has huge aero advantage because of less powerful engine so logically... it is kind of obvious that the opposite is true for the Bentley.

This car just GO. I drove it last night and against and the Audi in front of me at Imola looks like it just stops accelerating at some point :D

I wonder how it affects cornering at 0 and 10 levels then. I won't test it until Monday (Sunday there's a race so no testing either). If you tested this please share :)

You seem to have a knack of finding these great racers.

Maybe this downforce issue, is why I dont get on with the bentley. I will put the rear downforce onto 10 and try it again.

Busted so hard haha.

The Bentley on Bathurst is definitely competitive, just most people can't handle it properly, myself included. I've seen people get 2:04:5 with it in qualifying, which is almost identical to the fastest McLaren times you'll see (Mclaren is usually considered the faster around Bathurst).

Or do you mean the starting fuel load?

graveltrap
19-06-2015, 17:50
When you reset a setup to default the fuel load for the Bentley is 90 litres, the other GT3 cars default to 60 or 61.

So starting fuel load I guess.

Umer Ahmad
19-06-2015, 18:05
Ok, not a big deal. But thanks for reporting. For these short multiplayer sprint races most GT3 cars only need 20-30L anyway, thats the first thing i adjust. You can figure 2.5L/lap for the GT3s at most circuits/tracks, maybe more for longer tracks like SPA or Road America or Le Mans.

graveltrap
19-06-2015, 18:16
Totally agree it's not a big deal at all, as it can easily be adjust it to suit, just something I noticed today...It would actually be detrimental to performance if forced to run stock setups (not possible anyway). The Bentley Is a little more thirsty over a lap not that much :)

Wangster seems to be a hybrid between wang (vulg. for p***s) and gangster. Further it came I came to the conclusion that the last sentence should have been read: "You bitch, (I am) laughing my ass off at you, bum (coll. for jerk).

At Le Mans the Aston is for me 5 sec fast.
Never tried in other circuits

So a car that has never been to Le Mans is slower that a car that has been there and is in a different class? Different rules between classes means that the aston will be faster there because the gearing will be longer.

I trolled your game captures? - No I didn't. I viewed your profile, to report, and block you. I noticed in your activity feed you had made a clip, seeing as your profile is viewable to anyone, I commented on your clip. Feel free to report my comment to MS, but its not an offensive comment, so they wont do anything. :D

Sent you hate msgs? - Your not communicating within the game to me, so what did you expect.....fan mail? Please show me and the rest of the world ALL the hate I sent you. Xbox screen shot....no photoshop crap.

Me and my friends tracked down your post? - I dont remember actually becoming "friends" with anyone from the forum......yet. Next please!

My video is now childish? - Why? Because it shows you being an asshole for no reason what so ever?

I cut the track in qualifying did i? - I ran a clean lap, 1.46.6** At NO point on that qualifying lap did the game inform me, that I had cut the track, therefore I did NOT cut the track. You can see during the race Im struggling to brake, as I have 0 downforce front and rear....(the reason your buddy called me a cheat, and said the Aston isn't that fast). You got a much better start than I did anyway.....you should have been GONE!

Crashing people off the track, because you don't do the 1st turn, is nooby and unsporting.....that's what you did. Great win by the way.

Dont play on an empty stomach....it makes you grumpy.......Get some nuts! (snickers)

Im sorry, now you've got me. :(

The vid on page two, shows no qualifying at all.
As for my youtube channel, yes there are many videos of me crashing people in Grid Autosport, they're all grouped in a correctly titled playlist. Had I encountered you on the game, you'd have gone in there too. They are all people who couldn't /didn't want to race cleanly. Are there any of me crashing people on Project Cars? No. Why?............. Because unlike the Xbox 360, with an Xbox One, I can block crap drivers forever, even the solid ones. :D
I play exactly as is shown in the video on page 2, clean as I can be, making no contact with other cars where possible. I cannot be held responsible for noobs in bentley's making contact with me.

Im here to RACE, not crash.

I dont have a TWITCH account, or the app.

You claim, Im flipping it around, yet cannot provide the screenshot of the message from me mentioning twtich.....simply as it never existed.

Some Devs/mods said it depends on which track you're at. Seems to me that it is superior no matter the location. Anyone have seeing different results?

Had a really nice first run in the Bentley last night at Nurburgring. Rear end feels fantastically connected to the go pedal, and is nice and controllable with just a little modulation. Felt really good, I didn't end up adding any rear wing. Driving position is unique to say the least, but from what I understand you're pretty low and back in the real car too. To get everything lined up with my sim wheel, etc., I had to raise the seat height way higher than with other cars. This puts the top of the cars virtual wheel right at the bottom of my screen, but the motec appears to be right behind the G27.

Any tips for Nurburgring in the Bentley? The car struggles with mid-corner balance and wants to spin through turn 2, 4 and the Schumacer Ss. Rest of the track is fine if you don't touch Kerbs

Honestly I thought the mid-corner balance was pretty neutral, with a slight tendency to step out in a controllable manner. You might try left foot braking so you can hold just a little throttle into the apex, that will help keep the back in check. Otherwise maybe bring the ride height down slightly in the back, add one click of rear DF, or soften the rear springs or anti-roll bar slightly. One at a time.

Nothing wrong with the Bentley, if your crap in it/can't get on with the handling....it's most likely because your crap or you fail to adapt to the car. I'd suggest to hone your individual driving skills before writing off one particular model.
Personally, i'm much faster in it over any of the other GT3s, perhaps it's me having added DRIS. *Damm Right im Sarcastic*

.....And the lack of understanding regarding sarcasm is most likely why some numpties don't "get" Ian. :)

Interesting theory, but your wrong about me and sarcasm isn't the same as being a disillusioned ��

It does! (Drive it at night)

Also in reply to the OP, I don't feel the car suffers from poor brakes or aerodynamics at all. The car handles superbly for me with a bit of tweaking, and even at default settings it feels fine.

You can really dominate in the Bentley when you tune it up a bit. I've left people looking straight up vertical on the leaderboard with some of the times I've posted in Qualifying.

There are just a lot of people driving the car right now, it doesn't dominate on Xbox1...
