Hi all,

I was hooked with an old RSR in the pre 5.0 patch as it was a hugely fun car to drive ie. easy to slide and catch, flexible on corner entry by using rear end mass etc.
However, it had a tendency to overcooked the tires especially the rear one despite my best effort to drive smoothly (keyboard player here) I would usually have a tire temp of 110-120 degree c or something in Nordschleife or 130+c if I spin couple time.
In fact, it was for the best to drive in wet as the tires cool down much quicker and tire temp will casually stay around 70-80c. (Always drive with the default setting of stable and loose. Both work great and will melt the tires)
Then come the patch 5.0 and suddenly my RSR is a gripping monster. Much harder to make the rear slide on corner entry without a Scandinavian flick. Even a fast-in slow-out would not upset her.
I would say it had greater stability and room for error than its successor in GT3 class when push to the edge if you know her tempo. (Granted for a default stable/loose setup). Great for a circuit but not exactly nice for a road track ie California and Azure.

Is this a bug or this is how it supposed to be?

Cheers

It is a couple of months since I've driven the 2.8 RSR so I can't give a proper before and after patch comparison. However the 2.8 RSR does seem to have far too much grip. At Silverstone classic I can beat the RL times of the later 3.0 RSR (which had more power and grip than our 2.8) by a second and I'm really no alien. I'm several seconds adrift of the RL time in the 935 for example (though I need to try 100% boost and sift slicks).

On a slightly different topic I was surprised that only 5 people had done a time trial in the RSR at Silverstone classic and even I as a slow driver got second place on the leader boards. If you fancy getting top spot on the leaderboards I recommend trying this car or the 935 at Silverstone Classic.

EDIT I tried soft slicks and 100% boost and matched or beat the 935 RL times so actually it looks like the 935 also has too much grip.

It's been out for 5 weeks.

I'll try it tonight on the xbox, as that was one of my favourite cars that wasn't mental fast but really lovely to drive.

Try to modify the differential settings and see if that helps to get the rear loose again.

I compared the driving of the previous 1.4 set up for the RSR vs. the after 1.5 patch results. I ended up having to drop the Rear ARB to 20, lowered the Rear Toe to +0.3, and adjusted the DIFF to PL-20/CL-4/PR-75/CR-25.
After that it was back to the good drive again.

Re-visited again and adjusted the Rear ARB up to 25, and lowered the Pre-Load to 0. Better. TP were 1.42 front and 1.40 rear for soft's.
