    So weird,
    all I see at the first 30 are almost all Corvette Z06.R ??, balance of perfomance is not really correct;);)

    The gearing on Z06 seems to be completely different from other cars, I think shorter.

    I did quite a few laps in the new GT3 cars and then noticed the same as you. Switched to Z06 and had to get used to the gears as I was normally in a higher gear in a few corners than I was with the new GT3 cars.

    Top 30 positions in the leaderboards.

    Of this.
    I've heard that this car is actually too fast.

    Strangely, the old car is faster.
    This is true even with AlpinaB6GT3.
    Is BOP really functioning?

    Did the leaderboards get reset after last update? As far as I know the old gt3 cars were faster pre patch. If they were not reset then that might explain something

    The leaderboards had a reset. But I'm wondering myself a lill bit if the BOP is really properly made. To give you an example.

    We'll have an endurance race at the Nords, 24h layout this evening, and we've all been practicing since days. I've decided to drive with the "old" Bentley, simply because I've never used this car before. So after countless hours of practicing, those are facts:
    - Fuel consumption: 14,xx litres per lap
    - Fuel amount: 115 litres
    - Top speed: 277km/h

    A friend of mine will drive the new Porsche 911 GT3R, and he gave me this data yesterday evening.
    - Fuel consumption: 12,xx litres per lap
    - Fuel amount: 120 litres
    - Top speed: 280+km/h

    So the new Porsche is faster, uses less fuel, and due to his engine concept it has a huge amount of traction at corner exit. Personally I cant find any situation at the Nords in which the british beast has an advantage over the Porsche. Anyone able to enlighten me?

    BMW M6 is not a competitor at all :( He loses on all tracks vs Z4 and Ruf.

    That's not a leaderboard, it's a competition opened after the last patch. ;)

    No, except that a replay is recorded.
    If you want to register a leaderboard time you go in Single player -> Leaderboard challenge.
    Competitions are leaderboards limited for a certain period (some weeks usually), where the challenge is often higher than on the leaderboards.

    Especially spoken for the Corvette Z06 - yes, that car is really faster than the modern GT3-Cars in real life... but only on the straight line... In Corners it loses as it has less drag... So yeah - especially on fast tracks the Z06 has an advantage.

    So the characteristic is represented quite well in R3E. But as the Spa-Competition shows the Corvette Z06 might be a tiny bit to fast.

    Well, it looks like the race event for the top 30 drivers will be something very close to a Corvette Z06.R GT3 cup race. ;)

    This won't look very good as a promotion for the new RR GT3 class on a twitch livestream. Nearly the whole field consisting of cars that are outdated in real life and only raced at ADAC GT Masters at the time they where up to date.

    I noticed from the beginning that there is still quite a lot of work to be done concerning BoP after the physics update. Cars have recieved more significant characteristics, which is a good thing. But the differences in performance were quite significant too. This was not a surprise since @Alex Hodgkinson already said that the BoP will not be perfect from the start in the RD livestream. Further BoP has started with the Porsche update already but in my opinion RR/S3 schould have waited until they have sorted out the BoP to a much higher degree before starting this kind of competition.

    We know that the BoP is wrong but that is exactly one of the purposes of this competition, to generate a large amount of data to draw the right conclusions to fix the BoP. I rather get everything tested in a competitive enviroment where drivers push to the limit, instead of doing nothing and then I have a bad surprise when we start a league. And I think we will survive it if an old car wins that race. We survived years of Ford GT dominance and we are still here.
