This should be fun... like a turbo gokart with tons of downforce.

After driving the car last night, I have come to the conclusion that I don't like the car and the brakes are shoddy lol, but that's just a basic tune and the brake pressure was up at 180%, which is my usual pressure

It makes the car more driver orientated Razz
Was thinking of turning off TCS too. It's still drivable. Can do the hock hairpin without going sideways but I think that'd turn people away

I think the Hennessey Venom is more driver orientated than the F40 :p and that spins up in 5th on the Le Mans straight

Ferrari is over-rated Razz I'd take a Nissan or Honda over a Ferrari any day of the week Smile

If im being honest, i was doing a cheeky bit of testing on unused cars and the 458 gt3 is probably my new favourite car in forza 4. And i see a wee switch to XBONE coming very soon

Just a thought for the next Ferrari series... what about Maranello Motorsports Ferrari S Challenge.

Have it open to any Ferrari, with 700PI maximum. Maybe have other rules, such as max HP or min weight, (or drag tires LOL) but opening it up to different models could make things less of "another Spec Cup".

Good idea

I was hoping to do F430, then 458, then 355
But that could work!

It would be like a Ferrari Owner's Club event, w/o the wallet emptying crash repair bills.

Just a heads up, I will be Co-Commentating with Zeta for the upcoming round at Mugello. I was thinking about entering, but as soon as the cars brakes failed to stop the car and the fact that I hate the way it handles, it quickly made my mind up to do comms instead, so good luck to all Ax4x drivers in the field this Saturday.
