Both cars finished 40+ seconds behind the winner and my fastest lap was 3 seconds slower than the AI. I boosted on the two straights but nowhere else but I still got smoked.
    Wow, now thats something to think about.
    I was wondering, am i that slow?, or is the ai that fast?

    I was caught in limbo for a while lol.

    The best racing game ever just got 300% better in my opinion. What a heck of a pack this is!!!
    The circuit is beautiful to drive. No other circuit in a game has got me on the edge of my seat quite like this. To the point where I genuinely start to feel nervous heading towards the Porsche curves (the Ai are so fast through there and I just cannot get the setup right for the second part).
    Great work guys, a real credit to all those involved. Pure car porn.

    Amazing!

    Noob question, do we have other spectacular posts like this but about tracks? (slowly catching up reading the other "Physics of ").

    I drove the Toyota last night again at Silverstone GP to make sure I was testing like for like and I didn't finish dead last this time but I finished 18th 36 seconds back from the leader. I was still 3 seconds off the quickest AI lap time. The only reason I finished 18th was that there was a crash going into turn 1 and I was able to slip by from my 22nd starting position. But by the end of the race it looked like I was heading up a parade because there was a 12 second gap up to 17th place. The Porsches really wanted to run through the rear end of the Toyota. I got bashed around pretty good. Now I'm going to start reducing AI strength to see if I can come up with a compromise to allow me to race these cars.

    Fantastic read. These DLCs have been ridiculously good and getting better.

    Well, what can I say? Superb pack. Can't stop driving the new vintage prototypes. I needed quite a few laps in the 917LH to find out which is the right board to brake at at the end of the long straight. I'm still not sure Jesus! Both 512 seem to be a bit slower than their Porsche counterparts but handle and brake better. Absolutely love shifting into 5th gear in the 512, it's music to my ears.
    The pack has been out for 2 days now and I still haven't tried the 961 because I forgot AGAIN yesterday Awesome read again btw. The 924 is exactly as Casey described it, it handles absolutely fantastic. So much fun to drive.

    I haven't tried it yet but I thought I would ask first. Is it better to have a rolling start for these LPM1 Hybrids? Because I tried another race last night at Nurburgring GP and I started from 4th on the grid but I was 22nd after turn 2. I got absolutely hammered by the AI. They all started so quick. And this was with the AI strength reduced from 65 to 50.

    Also I test drove the Vintage LeMans track for the first time and I can see where all the love for it comes from. I used the Ferrari 512 S. It took 6 laps I think before I got one that counted. I kept messing up the right before Indianapolis. I drove it in clear blue skies and sunlight but it almost makes me want to drive it again in an early morning mist with one headlight busted out from the overnight wars and blisters on my hands. With all of the vintage signs it really puts you into a time warp.

    Oh yeah that kink before Indy is the bane of my life even on the modern layout, I find it easiest to slow down a fair amount before getting to the kink just to the car stable through it

    I think my problem was realizing that it was coming up that fast once you leave Mulsanne corner. I'm used to having a little more time to get there on the modern version.
