Well I practiced for a bit today and I tell you, I must be using the Ferraris too much in the new seasonals because every car understeered like crazy.
It might just be those F1 cars. I haven't experienced that much understeer with these cars yet. In my opinion they seem pretty well balanced and easy to drive. Couple of things in my set ups that you might want to check or play around with if you are having understeer issues. First I have not been running that much downforce with these cars as DTM cars typically have loads of downforce to begin with. I would suggest lowering the rear wing. Also, I have have running TC at 1 or 0. Lastly, I do not use ASM as I feel that produces a lot of understeer with any car. What track were you driving at? Speed and I were driving today at cote d'azur and since it's a slow speed/narrow track I was not getting the cars to rotate as much as I would like.

Hey everyone the first test session is tomorrow night at 8pm est.
Remember this is optional, no points will be awarded. This is just an opportunity for everyone to test the approved cars and the current rules and regulations. The practice will take place in my lounge at 8; send me a friend request if you would like to join.
I'll be bringing the opel astra the FR one.
Can some one send me a vauxhaul one? i've never even seen one before and the opel is my favorite one. I know they are pretty much the same but i'd like to run the vauxhual.
The Opel Astra is a good pick- I am liking that one too. I am pretty sure that we can not trade these cars as they are over the 1,000,000 credit limit. Also, you are correct the Vauxhaul is nothing more than a rebadged Opel. Besides performance the two cars look the same except one has Opel branding and the other Vauxhaul.
i'll be there as soon as I get home which should be around 8
no problem. I will probably open up the room in about 45 minutes and then stick around for at least an hour and a half.
Thanks to everyone that joined for the first test session. It was nice to have different cars on the track to test them simultaneously. Couple of things we learned:
- Merc CLK is in a league of its own (Wagg, Ice, Speed- would you agree?)
- The rest of the cars seem pretty well matched
- we tested higher weight limit (1200kg), but the result seemed the same
Couple of options we could try
- weight limit at 1080kg; this would raise the weight on the CLK and Opel to match the Audis
- switch HP/Weight limits to PP limits
*other options or suggestions are welcome
Also, we will add the Mercedes 190 E 2.5 Touring Car to the list of approved cars
