I always race AI at 90 or 95%. But at career race Imola with the LMP3 Caterham sp300 it seems impossible to keep up with the AI (Radical SR8...)
Am I doing something wrong or is the Radical SR8 just way more grippier or faster?? Even at 80% I can't seem to keep up..

I'm thinking the SR8 Radical is just the better car?

For what it's worth SR8 record @ imola is 4 seconds faster than catheram...

Essentially, yeah. The SR8's power to weight ratio is about 630 bhp/ton, the Caterham's is about 550 bhp/ton, and the aero differences aren't big enough to cover that up. Using the push to pass system on the Caterham allows for it to close the gap a little, but not for long until it runs out. The SR8 is a bit of a rocket ship.

I know enough, thanks. Lowering AI to 70% or whatever seems the only option. Been tuning the caterham like hell trying to just keep up... There shouldn't be so much diff between the same car classes, annoyed me like hell trying to get something right that is impossible in the first place. Wasted two hours on qualifying, djeezes.

I wish the leaderboards were universal across platforms, I have some of those BAC Mono world records beat no problem, but I'm on PS4, they're on PC :(

Edit: Just read the reason for the limited leaderboards on PS4 (something to do with a limit on max number of LB's per game imposed by Sony)

If the PS4 leaderboards were web-scrapable in any way, some enterprising amateur dev could easily add them to a universal Leaderboard so my question to SMS is:

Is there a TRC related reason why the PS4 leaderboard could not be available on a webpage also or is it just a time/priority issue?
