    Cars performance stats VS actual in-game cars performance

    Why i started this thread? Normally racing games tend to exaggerate speed and power, but in PCARS 2 case it seems to be the OPPOSITE!

    So, i read the stats, Nissan R32 - 500HP, i can barely reach over 220km speed with sloppy acceleration...ok...some engine restrictions maybe, to comply with Gr. A regulations? Ford Sierra on the other hand feels like a beast!
    Next, Mitsubishi with 940 HP, it should rotate the earth with its torque you may think? Nope... feels like a 500 HP car...at best.
    GT4 cars, 400+ HP, all goes like 200-250 HP cars IRL, just for instance here it is a video with stock E46 230HP (i had one so i know how it accelerates), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1BLBkBFvIw

    Now about the good instances, Mad Mikes Mazda - spot on, Formulas - spot on, most all supercars - spot on, GT3 - spot on, i mean you can feel the actual brutal power and it seems believable.

    BTW, GT3 and GT4 cars are not much different in HP, but GT4 seems so much under-powered in-game as all other 300-400 HP cars are a well...they all feel like 200-250 HP (artificially to more differentiate from supercars for gameplay purposes?) just check how actually brutal GT4 is IRL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOwvB4z6Iyg

    I really love this game in general and i want you to prove me i am missing something and that in-game telemetry is correct, thank you in advance.

    I've got the same problem with the car I've driven the most which is the Ford GTE says the top speed is 192 I can barely get up to 178 in slipstream no down force and gear adjustments gets absolutely destroyed on straights

    Group A & GT4 for me are the worse cars just not feeling the ones i tried to far. Oh yeah the escort mk1 racing? just felt boring, rear glued added rear brake bias & just feels overly tame & it runs off default wets?

    nice to hear i am not alone, would be nice to escalate this topic somehow in that case i would do some tests with top speeds and so on if there will be any decent interest from the members. First test in Le Mans straight. Cayman GT4 , default setup 266-ish km/h, all ducts closed, tyres full pressure 277-ish km/h. In-game stats claims 295 km/h.
