    Hi, devs! Zonda - legendary hypercar. With legendary handle level. So why RR's version ignoring steering wheel? It handles like Group5 Corvette.... Porsche Deutsche Cup - technically much more simple car, but handle level much better then Zonda have... Can't understand this...

    Before you added Porsche Deutsche Cup Zonda was my favorite RR's car, but after Porsche Deutsche Cup - I can't drive Zonda.... it like with soaped wheels on ice.

    I think, if Goracio Pagani try RR's Zonda... he start to cry and nobody can stop him ...:sob:

    Semi Slicks + Way to much power for not much downforce.

    you trying to tell about simplest Porsche Cup version has better aerodynamics than Zonda? I can't believe this.

    I didnt find any compares of Zonda R with Carrera Cup, but even if compare the Zonda with more technically advanced Porsche GT2 - Zonda wins with gap. Moreover, the Zonda is superior to the "usual" Porsche Cup. So why one of the world known hypercars handles worst then car 15 times cheaper?

    Tires. mostly tires.

    Walther Röhrl once said at a comparison of the Carerra GT with the new GT2, that the Carrera GT doesnt even come close to the GT2 in regards to the handling. And the Carrera GT was known for being tricky but great to drive. The GT2 was like on rail. Both on streettires and the specs of both are close, but Carrera GT was no match. Yeah and better not talking about the price of the Carerra GT...

    And now compare a car running on semi-slicks (maybe even semi-slicks available in 2010, historie cars in R3E also run on "wooden" 70s tires) and a cup racecar running on modern 2020 slicks.

    Then you have rear engine vs mid engine. mid engine can be very tricky, same in the comparison of Carerra GT and GT2

    Does the Pagani in R3E have slicks? i think not. If yes it should be faster then currently, i argree

    So another point for my tire argument.

    I never compared the Areo to the Porsche, it just has less the people think it has, and it's model in game has semi Slicks due to that being what most of then run these days at trackdays.

    Is this complaint purely about the handling or also about the speed of the car?

    Perhaps shouldve been more precise :D
    By speed i meant lap times rather than straight line speed

    Well if straight line speed is fine and lap times are as well then why do you think the car should be faster in the corners than it currently is? Especially if the car in game has semi slicks and can do the nordschleife time that in real life was set on slicks?

    think I need the motion platform. When no real acceleration - the car seems slow.

    Not sure thatll do too much. I too feel like the zonda needs to be taken through most corners slower than i would go in other cars in r3e but then again almost all other cars in r3e are proper race cars rather than track toys so that difference might just be down to that

    In my personal opinion Zonda in RR is horrible car to drive. Love the sounds and everything else. Never felt good before and not now either.
