Looking for a decent setup on Monza Classic Oval with the AI set at 100. I have tried many different cars , but after about 4-5 laps I end up in the middle of the pack with not enough top speed to really compete. I tried using a Formula X car, using a ghost car setup, but I found out it is uncontrollable in the high bank oval turns going full speed; which is the main reason why I love this track. Any suggestions, and the type of car would be appreciated.

Did you try the Toyota GT One 99?

The more laps run the worse it gets for AI at 100/90.

The Group C1 cars will give you more of a challenge than LMP 900.

The Formula A at AI 100 aren't enough of a challenge over 10 laps so maybe the Group C1 cars are better. Or
you need to increase Skill much higher on AI.

Thanks for the info and I will try your suggestions. Last night I drove the Formula X with the AI set at 100 and done amazing well, but I had to slow down somewhat in the corners. I found it on this car if you don't hit that groove perfectly in the corners it will really jerk you to one side of the track or the other.

Yeah especially turn 3 because of the bumps, turn 1 can be bad but once you figure out where the bump is at entry it's ok, also at the apex in the middle there is another bump as well. I don't care for open wheel cars so I would tend to go for the Group C1s.

Yes I know what you mean about the bumps and so forth. On many of the cars that I drove on this track you can go full bore in the corners and not get bothered and jerked around like the open wheel cars.

Thanks blinkngone for recommending the Toyota GT One 99, as it handled much better in the corners. That's for sure.

You are welcome. The only thing about the class is that the Toyota so absolutely dominates the class that I couldn't get a decent race at AI 100.

Just curious but do you have an 1987 Grand National?

Yep I owned an 87 GN for almost 20 years. It won many Best of Show awards and I sold it a couple of years ago when someone offered me big bucks for it.
