I don't drive, I fly.
Not sure about those cars but the 458 was hard to keep in check... at least until I modded it. I was surprised it was so tailhappy but of course I have no idea if the real car is like that.
You must have a funky setup on your 458 because mine plows like hell.

I found the 458 to be much better than the aforementioned Enzo and GTR. Driving style, perhaps?

Quite possibly, at the time I didn't have a wheel yet. I'd try it again but it's not exactly stock anymore....

For the 80's special events I used that AE86 with headlights from the OCD.
Good car.

I did as well, but I didn't buy it from the OCD, I had used it for previous 80s events.

Just for fun I gave it all the mods to see how it would cope. With some suspension tweaking, surprisingly well. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Mine has full bolt-on's but just lowered, you can throw it into any corner at any speed and it just goes round brilliantly. Cape Ring was fun.

*Insert random Initial D type video.

Do you still drive with traction control on? Because without suspension work and LSD, that was not the case for me (all aids off).

EDIT: I also didn't tune it for drifting, granted in an AE86 that feels a bit odd :lol:

Dude you need an LSD.
Yes everything on, I tried everything off and it's even better. It will only drift when you want it to, otherwise it's planted.
Last corner of Tsukuba is brilliant. :mrgreen:

Down to $3M credits and still looking for 12 Nissan cars to complete the collection of those.

The NASCAR B SPec race is fucking bullshit! My car had to pit in while all the other AI cars didn't. I wasn't even pushing the driver that hard, it's only a bit over the middle. I basically waited 18 mins watching my screen. The B Spec mode in GT5 is terrible. They know we just use B Spec to grind, why take that away from us? If they don't put back the 3x fastforward B Spec mode in GT6 I won't buy it.

I got bored, fully bolt-on MP4-12C against a fully bolt-on 458, around TG.

*Everything on
The McLaren was miles faster and handled better, but the 458 was more enjoyable.

*Everything off
The McLaren understeers like a Vectra VXR. :blink: The 458 was still great.

With everything on the McLaren is brilliant in every way, except it doesn't have the 458 looks and the MP4 is dull.

Is it a good idea to use the gt40 race car for the historic race car race? (a spec)?

I've been putting it off for a long time but I don't think i'm gonna get any more classic fast cars

For A-spec, I used an RM Challenger with all the mods. It actually drove quite well (also way cheaper than any historic race car).
