    Did you drive a complete lap in reverse? It's fun, but difficult lol :)

    Top speed isn't everything. There aren't a lot of tracks where you can reach the top speed.
    You just need to practice for the Porsche. I really hate some GTR3 cars and can't do a race in it.

    Hell no, still busy enough being competitive the right way around... :D

    I don't really want to practice the Porsche since i like other cars better and get ok times within just that car. Still far off Porsche times on most tracks and it's somewhat annoying if i can beat my own time within 5 laps of throwing a 911 around the track which is what might ruin championships a bit for non Porsche fans. It's fine if a specific car just doesn't work that good on a track but it happens on all tracks.

    I'm a Porsche fan indeed :D
    But, if you look at leaderboard times, Porsche isn't always at the top. It looks balanced.

    That’s for sure. Mr. C had proven that again and again. He competed with some of the most unlogical choices of cars. And was extremely competitive. Too bad he had to stop sim racing due to circumstances.

    Completly agree with that. Keep in mind the fact that a car can perform very well on some tracks and perform a bit bad on others tracks. This is also part of the BOP. A good exaple to illustrate that : The Porsche GT3 R performs very well on the Nordschleife but performs a bit bad on Road America, enssentialy because of the second sector, particulary the Carousel.

    I am pretty sure this is the same with the Callaway and in general, all the GT3 cars ;)

    I don't think anything was supposed to be changed with the Porsche, but when I tried it in Zhuhai it was also superfast. Does it feel different for you than before the patch, Jose?

    In your case, I am pretty sure this is more the driver who is insane than the car :D

    in all tracks than i've tried today the porsche is faster than 2 days ago, between 3 or 6 tenths faster. The car feels like always

    here more examples of insane laptimes, aren't perfect laps just good laps...

    I think it's because of this:GTR 3 cars - Fixed engine temperature and damage from overheating. Reduced fuel usage.
    But I believe that affects all the cars.I saw a lot of movement at the leaderboards.

    Are you sure that is only the Porsche?

    I just made a Exel Sheet with Raceroom Data (from the Raceroom Store) against Official ADAC GT Masters Vehicle data.

    It seems like the Porsche indeed is faster now, probably an unintended side effect of the patch. I will pass it on to the developers that it gets reverted.

    @Krampus I would not rely too much on official data sheets when it comes to horsepower etc., first of all real racing series also use BoP and second of all what the manufacturers state doesn't have too much to do with reality a lot of times.

    Beautiful looks and good power.
    It is the easiest-to-handle car and the best favorite.

    Because it is a standing start in multiplayer, troubled problems occur.
    The 1st gear is wider than other cars, and the start acceleration is slow.
    Even if I get the PP, I always fall down to the fourth place or less and the game will be difficult.:(

    Is the gear ratio of the C7 GT 3 realistic?
    What matched the rolling start?

    Yes, the car in game uses the real homologated gear ratios.
