    You say physics, but with 'lateral oscillation' you mean FFB I guess?

    Old mate is on a gamepad it seems to me:

    I haven’t felt lateral oscillation from the 919. It’s handling isn’t a problem. All the LMP cars just stick and haul arse really.

    Could be a gamepad thing?

    I'm not having that problem with my gamepad. Maybe it's a settings or configuration problem.

    I think that what he means is that the car oversteers when you turn the wheel at a certain angle. the front grips, then lifts up and the oversteer starts. I have that with the 919 and the TS050. I didn't completely tested both versions of the R18 to see that. but the car that happens the most is the 919

    I canīt believe that you guys donīt notice a bit of strange wobbling when taking corners. Anyway, within the game you can tell that a car like the 330p4 is a way better race car than the 919, which makes no sense because itīs ancient, the porsche should be a breeze in comparison.

    Ps.- Yep I use the 360 pad.

    You're most likely applying to much steering angle while cornering.
    This leads to temporal grip loss at the front which can sometimes result in that light pendulum effect you're describing when the tire re-grips.

    I can't help but think the R18 is significantly faster than the other two, regardless of which aero kit is used. It seems like the R18 gets up to speed faster but it can recover energy almost as well as the Toyota. With the R18 being in the 6MJ group, it has a better top speed, which I'd expect. I can't find any notable strengths in the 919 that makes it stand out. The energy recovery via the turbo is not big enough to make a difference compared to the front and rear ERS on the Toyota. Generally, I'm getting:

    Spa (Time Trial):
    1:52.5 in the R18 Fuji
    1:54.5 in the 919

    Le Mans (Private Testing):
    3:16 in the R18 LM
    3:20 in the 919 and Toyota

    In private testing, I have all damage, wear, etc. on. I can do more testing, but so far, I think the Audi's aero is way too efficient for the other cars in either aero kit. It's acceleration could be pegged back somehow, but I feel Casey's replication is accurate at the same time. I also think the Porsche's energy recovery with the turbo could use a healthy buff in comparison to hope the other cars can recover more energy.

    EDIT: got the Porsche to 3:17.0## in time attack. It still seems hard to get the car to perform on road courses, but I'm still pushing.

    I’m at 3:23 with the Toyota. Get less wheel spin and better exits than the R18 or 919.
    R18 has much better top speed though, even when getting off the boost early.
