    Did you know that Walter Röhrl was envolved in the development of this track? That's why it is so perfect.

    Also funny, what happens, if Hermann Tilke actually is allowed to build a track with elevation changes, interesting corners and lots of feedback of drivers.^^

    For protocol (confused another thread with this one)

    Very nice improvement on behaviour at the edge, noticeable immediately, even with cold tyres.

    Porsche GT3-R at Zolder is not losing it under downshifts or sliding at all, anymore, already in default setup. You get quite a bit more confidence! VERY WELL DONE! <3

    Watched old Gamer Muscle trying out RR couple days ago, missed the beginning but it appears our Mr West had a go in a Radical (not sure which one) and announced it was undriveable due to the brakes, now I did try to point out to James that he could well have loaded an old setup but he was adamant that it was broken physics and nothing to do with setups.
    Being curious of this and knowing S3 never release a car that is undriveable (knowingly) I hopped in said Radicals, made sure default setup was loaded and went for a spin, now I did myself get some braking issue but that was solely down to the brake bias being very close to 50/50 think it was 51/49, whatever it was this locked the rears and made braking very difficult. I cannot believe that this was the only issue James was having and I do believe an old setup did load in error but trying to explain to a Brummie the old setup issue in RR was always going to be a tricky task and I failed (or he failed to comprehend). Maybe worth while someone revisiting the Radicals and checking that the default BB is in fact useable as if an old hand like the muscle struggles, newcomers will just stay clear. @Alex Hodgkinson

    I watched that a couple of days ago, and I was scratching my head the whole time. I assumed he was doing something wrong with his set up too, because both the AER and the Judd do not have the types of problems he had when trail braking. I had no problems with braking in either of the cars, and I am an unskilled hack compared to Gamer Muscle.

    The P2 class is on pretty old physics but they are very drivable. I noticed that he locks the brakes constantly in the f4 too. Perhaps hes just really crap at braking.

    There was a competition at RaceRoom Raceway Bridge with the Radical AER in january 2021 (in fixed setup mode) but I didn't notice any trouble with the brakes. Maybe should Mr West think about reducing a bit the brakes power ratio if they have a tendency to lock too easily or as ravey1981 wrote perhaps he is just really crap at braking. :p

    It appears not my friend! ;) I found no problem with either Radical, in fact I found them a blast to drive, light, nimble, responsive, fancy our Gamer Muscle must have had his lead dancing shoes on.
