    Hey,

    This time is from our Time-Trial-Challence at our German Project Cars 2-Forum which is currently running.

    The Challenge runs from 28.01.2018 till 11.02.2018 with the Audi R8 LMS @ Red Bull Ring GP.
    For that reason we have times for this exact Car/Track combination from before and after the Patch with the Audi.

    Our best time was done by 'Oege' last week with a 1.29,2Xx which was quite close to the optimum as we thought. I, myself was able to put in times from 1.29,2 - 1.29,4 if i got all sectors together..

    After the Patch the Audi is massively faster, which is because it has nearly 40PS more throughout the whole lap (Alltitude-Fix).
    The 1.28,5 which is the current Audi-Record (also done by 'Oege') was put in with one of the first laps. It doesn't seem to be a big thing to get the Audi even in to the 1.27's now.
    So on this quite short track it's approx 1.5 seconds faster with Patch 4.0 in comparison to Patch 3.0.

    I hope the cars which doesn't got a Altitude-Fix/Buff can still compete now.

    (Picture from here: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...=1#post1424033)

    If you look at this graphic the biggest Altitude-Improved cars should be Mercedes (+29HP), Aston Martin (+26HP), Ginetta (+24HP), Lamborghini (+23HP), Audi (+23HP) and Porsche (+21HP).

    Some of these cars were amazingly fast even before the Patch. Especially the Porsche, the Ginetta and the Audi..

    If i had to choose i'd go for Audi , Ferrari or Ginetta atm.

    Only 1 person so far has tried the Huracan since the Patch 4.0 at RBR but the result is a 1:28.935 a 1.0005 second improvement over the Patch 3.0 WR.
    Bikes wrecked-77 Suzuki RM125, 78 Honda Elsinore 250, 81 Honda CB900F, 2000 Kawsaki ZX12R(2), 2001 Honda F4I, 2005 Yamaha R1. A bike hasn't been made I couldn't wreck, spectacularly, but I'm retired now.

    I Just tried the (horror of a car) 488 on Brands Hatch GP. No real setup, more or less random setup. It took a few laps to dial in the steering so it made some sense. No assists used, and rattled in on a 1:24 flat.
    Even as it felt like an underpowered lead-barge, that always were one gear to low, it's half a second faster then I can manage with my beloved Nissan GT3 on BHGP.

    It's one of the few cars I always genuinely disliked both in-game and seeing on the track. So a first ride in the 'no fun at all '-Car came out on 0:002 slower then the best Nissan GT3 time (currently) on the boards.

    I used to be able to beat the Nissan times with a second, when I were loudly whining about the 488. So not sure how to interpret my first lap where I managed to get around BHGP with the 488.

    But as I play in VR, I also dislike the view from the cockpit, as the entire left side is obscured by one of the 'window bars' (Only really annoying in turn 4 on Brands)
    It's a hate-hate car for me, but obviously still faster then quite a few others in the GT3 class, without much effort.
    And no tendency to spin out at lower speeds without assists.

    At higher speeds I would've been called it a bit scary/twitchy, on just a slight too much throttle while cornering fast, (if I cared about the car, or planned to make it survive more then one lap.) But getting used to the steering would be a higher prio for me if I ever would try the car again.
    I guess the 488 'regulars' will not be too sad with it's current state.

    I haven't played for ~5 months now, Just got back to the game, so no idea how any car felt last patch, but the 488 felt heavier then I remembered.
    On the other hand I haven't driven the 488 since release even once I think, only during testing.

    I can't wait for this patch to hit PS4 so I can continue my mission of obsession over getting down to at least a 1:24 at Brands in the Huracan GT3. The real life time is a 1:22 by Mirko Bortolotti. Currently, I've hit a barrier at 1:25.9...

    The Patch 3.0 PC WR for the Huracan is 1:23.162 so with the improvements to the car with Patch 4.0 you should reach your goal.

    Yeah I think it's mine, but I hardly ever drove the lambo before patch and therefore probably can't set it up properly. Somebody more competent might be able to go into 1:27s.
