    Awesome , even though I normally don’t like driving old cars I have to say this has been a very enjoyable mod from the handling to the detail in the car model, fantastic work by the mod team !

    Tricky to drive but so much fun, I love the basic one with 4 gears. Car has a happy tail and braking is always adventurous. I’m no expert so take it with a pinch of salt, but I found out that a little gas in the first stages of braking helps to keep the rear in line. Down shifting must be properly done, too, fully depressing the clutch and blipping. Once you get used to this, the car is an absolute pleasure to drive.

      I don’t drive the real car of course but this seemed the way i drove the car in GT-Legends… Loved it
      Tried this version and i’m impressed. Quality mod

    • Francesco Kasta

      A “proper” down shift requires the clutch to be released when blipping, otherwise blipping the throttle would be useless.

      This technique should really be learned on a real car and only then practiced on a simulator, otherwise you could get a “training scar”.

      The “Grinding Tranny Mod” for rFactor was pretty accurate.

      I have always felt that what we really need is an H Shifter with FFB to prevent you from moving the stick into gear unless you are matching the revs correctly.

  • Paul Menard

    it feels like it has alot of rear lift at high speed, and the rear tyres are massively skitish :/

    • Marco Hooghuis

      IIRC the real car had a lot of lift at high speed, which is why they created the Daytona.

  • Chris McLellan

    Are we going to see LOD’s implemented soon…I’d like to race more than 5 cars!?
    Brilliant mod…love driving it even if I can’t always keep it on track.
