    I might try to make a list of them and maybe start a new discussion about it, but this thread is to celebrate S3S's achievement of Spa and not nitpick little details of the game so I'm not going to discuss it here anymore.

    Speaking of, could somebody call my boss and tell him I need to leave early due to some unforeseen/undisclosed emergency so I can get out of here and head to Belgium? :D

    I think that except Les Combes and the new Bus Stop you can get away with pushing the curbs in Spa.Just use a higher ride height.

    Well, like I said, I haven't driven on Spa yet so I can't comment on the curbs there. :)

    Walking home to fire it up now and just watched a video (thanks for those who posted them)...


    ......is it true there are no muppets waving flags in the crowd? I couldn't see any. If so, another small detail that deserves thumbs up for listening to us moaning gits on here!

    most R3E tracks if you use 15% power and 20% coast on the diff and have the rear bar almost full stiffness and the front bar soft, the curbs are not a problem. With stock setups though you will launch yourself off most curbs.

    Must admit, I love it too. I wasn't bowled over initially (after all, it's Spa, I've run more virtual laps there than I can count). But getting into an online race in the GT2 Ruf, it's just magical to race on. A real thrill :)

    Didn't thought... But with dtm92 it's a f##ing blast!!

    We did MP race with this car tonight, I had more fun than with the loved ADAC 2014.

    Great job guys. Only had time for a quick race with the pad tonight but it's safe to say this is the best version of Spa I've experienced. Tomorrow night I can get a couple of hours with the wheel for closer examination of this beauty.

    Had just a first Rollout and felt home immediately - not much difference to the GTR 2 version I raced a million times - some turns are slightly different and the current version appears more narrow - great fun - thx a bunch S3 - Spa is cult ;)
    And thx to @Tarik Userli and a guy named Toccaceli for some first Gentlemen-practice laps (incl. race) :)

    After spending a bit of time with the track:

    First - really nice job, It looks and feels amazing.
    And a big, big thank you for including the different S/F line and pits layout - that is something that is severely lacking in other games.

    One thing - but it may very well be me. Don't you guys think the AI is a tad bit too fast here?
    I usually run with AI set to 110 - I get my ass kicked, but it's a nice incentive. But here, that was just humiliating.
    Depending on the track length/difficulty, I usually can stay within 2/2.5s on the pole.
    I tried with the GTR3 and the ADAC 2014, I was almost 4s off-pace. And more than 5s with the GTR-2.
    It seems the AI literally flies during the Bruxelles-Pouhon section.
    Of course, it may just be me that need to adjust. Strangely enough, I did not have the same issue testing with the Grp5 class

    Ha, I was going to wrote that the AI seemed to really struggle on the second part of Pouhon, they seem to dab the brakes halfway through it (in GT Masters 2014).
