    Marek LMP2 Patch 4.0

    This car is faster, after incrementally changing WR's now it is much faster.

    The patch notes said that the LMP2 cars were given around 50 bhp more power. It should help multiclass racing with GTE cars.

    Yeah I am showing around 518 and the Car Details are still showing 460 so it sounds reasonable to get the performance increase. However before the LMP2 Marek was about 0.550 seconds slower than the Ford GTE and now it's 0.957 faster so maybe the balance has swung too far the other way?

    Don't complain. Now the LMP2 (all of them) can finally easily overtake the GTE cars which was an issue before the patch

    Not complaining, it was a question. I ran the Ligier JS P2 Honda.

    Ran the RWD LMP2, it's almost a second slower than the Ligier Honda but again much faster than the Marek LMP2. It seems as though the Marek has enough power to pull a higher gear but there is none available so it will be a significantly slower car in this class. Why would you choose a Marek?

    Isn't there a longer gearing available in the setup?

    Nope, here is the gearing I ran, I couldn't get it longer. Final Drive is locked, 6th(overdrive) is the longest I could adjust to. EDIT, it's the same as the Ligier overall gearing but it does have 20 horsepower less so maybe that is the reason it's slower? And the Marek, it has the longest gearing by far and isn't adjustable really so there is something else wrong with it? EDIT nevermind, it is the setup. 3rd spring was f'd up in Default, set to 0. Didn't change much yet but now it is closer to the JSP2 and it is the horsepower handicap that holds it back.

    Did you have a chance to check the balance on a non ovel track?

    No sorry, Bealdor, I can only do Ovals. Down to one arm and one leg now. But I think everything is better after I adjusted the 3rd spring on the Marek, the cars are much closer now. Sorry I was confused. I have the Marek within 2 tenths of the JSP2 and considering it is down 20 horsepower that's pretty good. I'll work the setups more and see what the final balance is after more adjustments.
